The USPS is about to dress up 400 of their mail boxes around the US as R2D2s from Star Wars to celebrate SW's 30th anniversary, and something else they're revealing on March 28.
I honestly don't know what took them so long. The mailboxes are dead ringers for everyone's favorite droid, and they don't look too weird - I mean, they stand out, but they're not garish dressed up like this. Its good advertising and something I thought was really clever.
I found all this out by seeing the above in the wild, so to speak, today on campus. Pretty funny and cool. hell, Bryn likes it.
