Some stolen items from Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge have found their way online for hundreds of dollars. The new part of the Anaheim Disneyland theme park opened last month and Star Wars fans have been making sure it's at capacity nearly every hour. Now that the reservation system for the soft opening is over, visitors are allowed to go in whenever they like, as long as it's not at capacity. If it is at capacity, the guests are put into a digital que to come back at a later part of the day.
Star Wars fans like to collect just about anything having to do with the franchise and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is proving to be no different. However, some of these items have found their way up on eBay and Craigslist and they were never meant to leave the park. One such item is the card visitors are given when they enter the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run ride. The card tells the person which role they will play on the ride and they're meant to be handed back at the end. But, they are being sold as "rare" items for $400.
Oga's Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is another spot where visitors have been hijacking menus, glasses, sporks, and other items to sell online. A complete set is currently up for $250. This has led to waiters and waitresses being more mindful of the menus and collecting them much quicker than before. As for the glasses being taken, those can actually be bought, so they're not all that rare either. It looks like Disneyland will stop offering the sporks and other items for the time being.
Some fans have not been able to make it out to Disneyland yet and a few of the more hardcore of the group are dying to get their hands on the custom Lightsabers. They retail from around $100 to $200, but they sell for more than double that amount online. Disney has yet to release a statement or comment on the matter, but it seems like there's not much they can do other than beef up security to make sure people aren't stealing sporks and menus to sell online.
For Star Wars fans who are looking to get the official merchandise from Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, try either getting them on your own or ask a friend to grab you the stuff. The items are already expensive enough as it is, there's no need to pay more money and have someone else profit off of the fandom. The new area will be coming to the Orlando theme park at the end of August and one can assume some of the same things will go on when it opens. The stolen items from Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge news was first reported by the Orange County Register.
