    I give it 7 days before some scrapper steals those and sells poor R2D2 to a scrap yard.

    that’s red hot…but i gotta agree with Tom, either at a scrap yard, cut open assuming there MUST be copper wires in a robot or the poor little guys gonna be left on blocks (like my car was recently)

    This is one just in front of RAGS downtown. I have spotted another at Woodward and Hancock. Has anyone seen any more?

    What makes you assume someone will steal these things? I never hear about anyone stealing mailboxes, so just because they got a new paint job, I highly doubt that anyone will risk a federal offense stealing this.

    I think thievery is a legitimate concern. What Star Wars fan would not want to add one of these boxes to their collection? However, to assume that that will be the immediate outcome is silly. But, if the USPS was smart they could retire these boxes and auction them online for additional revenue. Also, if they could put their little postal trucks up for sale, I would be all about that.
