Liberating Yoda

>> Thursday, December 11, 2008

A Yoda Clone Wars action figure! Excellent. But what's this sticker on the plastic?

"1st Day of Issue"? Force preserve us. This is artificial scarcity. You've got a hundred thousand plastic Yoda figures and you want to make some of them worth more than the others? Slap a "first day of issue" sticker on ten thousand of them, et voila! Same bleeping figures, instant "collectibles." You know what I have to say to that?

I'm-a-comin' for you, Yoda!

Free you I will!

That's what I think of your "1st Day of Issue."

Now, to free Yoda from his further chains--the ridiculous plastic cords they use now to pose action figures in blister packs they never expect collectors to open...

And Yoda joins the pantheon of toys under my computer monitor!

I hear that those 1st issue Yodas are worth a fortune if they are in their original wrapper.

I have some really nice wine that's worth a lot, too. And you know what? I'm drinking it.

Yoda looks happy where he is.

In my heart, I know that after I go to sleep at night, he and Morocco Mole climb down off of there and go on adventures together...

Mayhap you should wrap your next 10,000 books in plastic and slap on a "Hot off the press" sticker.
