Angry He Is

He wants his toys back, and he’s willing to pay for them.

Jason Scott wants his “Star Wars” collection back, including his 12-inch model of a beast called a tauntaun and his C3PO and Darth Vader carrying cases.

 

And especially the original and rare “blue snaggletooth” figure that showed up in the first film’s cantina scene.

 

Scott said Monday that he’s posted a $1,000 reward for his stuff, which was stolen last week from his padlocked storage unit inside his Lincoln apartment building.

 

“These figures are vintage,” he said. “Some were the hard-to-find 1985 figures” – like a Death Star play set, for example.

 

Scott said he’s posted reward notices around his apartment complex and remains hopeful, but the loss is uninsured.

 

He’d been collecting seriously since 1994, and he said his 92-piece collection of action figures is only five short of the 97 total. He estimated the 92 pieces together could fetch $3,500 or more in an Internet auction.

I sympathize with Mr Scott. I can’t even imagine what he must be going through without his beloved tauntaun. And a snaggletoothless existence sounds like no fun. However, I don’t think it was a particularly smart move mentioning that the collection could be worth at least over 3 times as much as the reward he is offering.

 

But then again, I suspect that Mr Scott does not possess the intelligence of a master Yoda.

“It would be nice if the person just set the stuff back on my doorstep,” Scott said. “Fifty percent of it is I want the person to get busted, but I want the stuff back more,” he said.

Which, as you all realize, is a mathematical impossibility.
