    Will some idiot try and steal one of the R2D2 mailboxes?

    My comic book shop owner and I had a serious laugh fest last night:

    We predicted some idiot was going to try and steal one of those R2-D2 mailboxes! A federal crime if there ever was one!

    Further, we laughed at the image of a Star Wars geek with taped glasses, down on his hands and knees with a power drill trying to unscrew the security camps to the pavement, or jackhammer around them, then explain himself when the police come.

    If he gets away with it somehow, my comic book store owner says the Post Office has their own law enforcement agency branch and the postal police are not the cops you want to mess with.

    However, some idiot fan who actually DOES manage to drill through cement and rip off "the ultimate Star Wars collectible that no one else will have" will of course be so smart he'll post pictures of the mailbox alongside his collection on MySpace or film a video of himself and the box for YouTube.

    The conversations in Federal Prison that will follow (or even the trial by jury) will be priceless.

    "He followed me home claiming he was the property of Obi-Wan Kenobi."

    "This is not the droid you're looking for."

    "I'm a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission!"

    "I was helping facillitate his escape from the Empire."

    "The Post Master General? I've heard of the Separatist General. But he insists he's the property of General Kenobi. I saw the movie. There's a message for him in there somewhere. Just let me finish searching the letters in the box. I was trying to find that memo for Obi-Wan Kenobi when your officers basged into my mom's basement and accused me of vandalizing the Federal Mail!"

    I'm currently the first picture that shows up on the map, but as others add there faces, I'm sure I will fall off that position.

    I wouldn't dare try to steal one of the mailboxes. I did think everyday though when KFC had a large Jar Jar display with all the toys inside. I would go in and eat there, and at 10:30 am, there wouldn't be anyone else eating. Most of the employees were in the back. *sigh* my conscience got the better of me.

    I think the only one with the audacity to steal one of these is Steve Sansweet.

    If I knew I would get away with it...I would steal one.

    If you steal one and have its memory erased, it won't be able to tell on you.

    ROTFLMAO - imagining him facing his public after such a stunt!

    However, because of who he is, it just wouldn't surprise me that much if he gets a special option to purchase one for his collection.

    Steal my @$$. That guy's got his nose so far up G.Lu.'s butt that he probably has the rights to all of them once the promotion ends.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    Well, IMO I think the only person who would be determined enough to steal one would have profit in mind. However, this Ferengi wouldn't be able to get a profit anytime soon considering if one showed up on ebay they could easily discover it's the stolen one. They would have to wait to see if the others were sold when they were retired.

    Honestly, I think the biggest problem with them will be morons vandalising them because they think it's cool to ruin it due to the "nerdy" or "geeky" nature of it.
