I wonder if they'll release one of their small mailbox banks or stamp holders in that deco?  They have regualr mailboxes that are about 1:6 scale all the time but they have some holiday ones as well.  I'd love to get a mailbox bank with R2 deco!

E, that's a good point...  Oh how I'd love to have the full size one be my mailbox to my house though.  That thing kicks ass, but it's such a target for vandals, haha.

Sadly...it's soooo tempting I can see it now.

Vandal arrested on federal charges (no less) of tampering with and stealing USPS Mail.  If convicted charges can bring up to a maximum of 10 years in federal prison  :-X.

I think that's why they are only going to be installed at Post Offices, not in neigherhoods and the like (or so I've read.

One of these was put out in Columbus yesterday. It's gone now but it doesn't appear to be by theft. It seems the USPS put it out and them promptly took it back down. There's some uproar about it too, a lot of people are asking why the USPS would pay to have these done and then raise stamp prices. The post office and Lucasfilm didn't have any comments on it.

Very cool idea from USPS.

It would have to be R2-R9 in the UK  :P
