Vader Robs Bank

We can now officially say at least one Star Wars fan has lost the plot - with reports that a man dressed as Vader, including Helmet and Cape robbed a Bank in NY today.

Was his getaway car a TIE Advanced or the SSD?

"I find your lack of cash disturbing."

+1 for originiality. Clown Masks are sooooo 2008.

Would be epic if the getaway car was a black Smart with 'V4D3R' on the licence plate.

The guy on the ground in the article's second pic could've easily disarmed the robber had he the gett'se to try it.

I hate robberies, but this has got to be one of the better stories.

If you're going to dress as someone, at least be in a situation where it plays the part. Vader doesn't do blasters.

shut up. attacking people who have guns is dumb, as is deriding those who have the sense to not to risk their lives over a bunch of some bank's money.

The guy was wearing a vision restricting mask. If the victim had stayed low and moved quickly he probably could've knocked the gun out of "Vader's" hand. Besides, it's not about saving the bank's money. It's about getting the reward money for turning in an armed robber.

'Probably' is not a risk worth taking when a gun is involved, especially seeing as anyone robbing a bank dressed as Darth Vader is obviously unhinged.

If they were attacking a loved one or fave pron star, maybe. For a bank, no freakin' way.

your theories have no basis in reality.

You're joking, right? Vader has the Force, he can sense the little bastard trying to tackle him and electrify him right then and there, maybe eat the bugger as a grilled sandwich while he's at it.

This guy is in real trouble now, once George Lucas is done with him for copyright infringement he will have to rob more bank to pay for the lawyers.

I have a strange feeling, like this is such a laugh that he'll actually get away with it.

I have a black belt in Taekwondo. The first thing we're taught is never to try to disarm unless we're in imminent danger of firearm death ourselves, i.e. the gun is pointed at us personally. The police train heavily in safe disarming techniques. I know a few, but not nearly enough to do it anywhere near expertise level. It's certainly not enough to prevent danger not only to myself but to others around me if he fires off a stray bullet. I'll leave gun disarming to the experts, thanks.

@thread--he must have run out of cash in that torso lite-brite of his.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

Don't fall for this motherly advice, ladies and gents, the woman has titanium knees that will wreck your **** up if she feels like it.
