Where are all the Darth Vader thieves?

We have to admit that we’re vaguely disappointed that so far, none of the giant blow-up Darth Vaders perched atop of Burger Kings across the country have been stolen. After the furor over the fast feeder’s missing inflatable SpongeBobs, we thought for sure that some sci-fi fans would filch a few Vaders, especially given the frenzy over the last Star Wars movie ever. Despite the dubious claim of one poster, to our knowledge there have been no robberies, although one guy dressed up as Darth did rob a movie theater.
