Desperate for Vader

Seems some fans are just a bit too keen to get their hands on Burger Kings toys.

“They warned me before it started someone may try to steal my Darth Vader off the roof,” said Chris Hamilton, manager at a Columbus Burger King. But Hamilton wasn’t ready for thieves to break into his Plexiglas display case to steal “Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith” toys during the promotion. His restaurant is on its third case.

PG denies being in the vicinity. Yav isn’t even on the continent.
