Hyperinflation Watch: Last Minute Christmas Shopping (Star Wars Edition)

They may still be available if you act now, just don’t say we didn’t warn you when you see a comma and five digits (to the left of the decimal point)…

On the latest installment of the hyperinflation watch, we feature some last minute gift ideas for the holiday season.

Who needs an ounce of gold when you can have the Millennium Falcon:

Now you may be thinking: But that’s just some re-seller gouging the price?

Nope. Take a closer look. That’s Lego itself hawkin’ the goods…

Now, assuming you’ve felt that I’ve let you down because there’s only one comma and four digits to the left of the decimal, here ya go:

The $10,000 Death Star Fire Pit.

Granted, there’s no “1-click ordering”, and we haven’t priced the shipping, but you’ll be able to spend the winter bar-b-ques warm and in style.

Since we feel kind of bad for suggesting the Lego set because it only had four digits, we’ll throw in a bonus item that has six digits to the left of the decimal to make up for the difference:

Ok, technically that last item is not for sale. That was the selling price at auction.

Here’s the kicker: It sold for $402,400 in the year 2008!

That’s all for this week’s installment of the Hyperinflation Watch.

Next time we come back to Star Wars, be on the look out for a bonus category featuring two commas and seven digits to the left of the decimal.

Stack accordingly…
