There are many toys and models based on film characters and old comic book heroes and villians. I don't have any because I'm too old and too uninterested.
I have a friend's birthday approaching so I was looking for something inconsequential and generally just fun as a present, and happened across the most pointless item that has ever been on sale.
It's a little slab of black plastic. It's a 'model' of the black slab from '2001: A Space Idiocy' and it does... nothing at all. Not a thing. It's a slab. That's it. An extraordinarily expensive lump of plastic in a packet.
For the price, I'd at least expect to see stars inside it.
What would make an interesting study for me is this - is anyone really stupid enough to buy it?
