Picked up some food premium items, just wondering if anyone can help with identifying their place in the production process?

From 1999, made by Cadbury to coincide with the release of Episode I, when it seemed like you could slap Star Wars on anything. Cadbury re-moulded Wispa bars into SW characters.

I picked up some Cadbury pre-production bits from this promotion. Three in total, 2 are a resin/wax material & one is extremely heavy metal, that resembles Carbonite :).
Wondering if anyone knows about the pre-production process and why these were made?

Thank you in advance

I had marketing sign off moulds for the big episode one jars. There’s a few Cadburys items started to appear recently, I don’t really have any further info though sadly.

Just received my Droids figures - absolutely loving them. Picked up an extra R2 to open :)
