“A thief stole a 170-pound bronze statue of Star Wars’ Jedi master Yoda from the back of a truck in Pasadena, Calif., on Jan. 17, the Zap2it Web site reported. Four of the 36 Lucasfilm-commissioned statues were bolted down to a flatbed truck for transport to Los Angeles to be sold. The truck’s drivers, who had stopped at a Westway Inn, found the statue missing the next morning.”
This nerd wet dream is estimated at to be worth between $15,000 – $20,000 and they are offering a $1,000 reword for it’s return. Huh? $1,000?!! Who ever was smart enough to swipe that thing, I’m guessing is smart enough to do the math on that on as well. My guess is it’s not going to show up anytime soon.
