I actually respect the fact he has admitted it and is trying to put things right. That takes balls. More than can be said for the twat who stole my collection and tried to worm and bully his way out of it.

I don't. If I read this correctly, this was a friend who was invited into a house on trust - trust that he violated in the most obscene way. I appreciate that he's come clean (after being caught out) but that doesn't make the trust/loyalty issue right. We're not talking about some kid who had a moment of weakness, we're talking about an adult who knew what he was doing, and who displayed a complete lack of disrespect for a friendship.

You're a better man than me Edd. Fuck him, I say.

I'm not condoning what he did of course, but I'd like to believe in second chances otherwise we're all fucked!

No doubt saw the upset he caused (if it is this guy) and thought better of it. Either that or he realised he'd bitten off more than he could chew. What's the point in stealing that? It's like taking the Mona Lisa. Very nice but what would you do with it once you've sat and stared at it for a while?

Really glad to hear the Fett is back in the owners hands and I can't help but wonder what price the buyer paid for it. It must have been a fair amount which makes me surprised that they hadn't heard of this story before dropping all that money on it.

Hopefully the buyer has their money back now as it sounds like they never even got to see this item.

Sounds like Carl Cunningham will soon be playing mummys and daddys in an orange jumpsuit. Oh well.

Outrageous, that firstly you could steal that from your mate, and then think you could sell it on and it never come out in the wash.

As with all things, the judgement on this is with the injured party, we can all judge our own reaction and what we would do. Whichever way you hold it up stealing is stealing and cannot be condoned, but human nature is complex.
