This ‘Star Wars’ Toy Thief Is Seeking Redemption
A Star Wars toy collector for decades, Carl Cunningham befriended some of America’s top hobbyists, including one in California who allowed fans to browse aisles of valuable items unescorted. In 2017, the unemployed father sold an extremely rare missile-launching Boba Fett — never released due to its potential choking hazard — which, it turns out, had been reported stolen along with numerous other items. Admitting his guilt, Cunningham served six months’ house arrest.
Is there a way back? Although he’s tried to atone, the collectors who’ve hounded and threatened Cunningham believe he’ll be consigned to the dark side for good.
