Weren't the Body Wars simulators sent to HS for Star Tours backups? I thought I remembered hearing thatTHIS.
Let’s just remind ourselves this, the grand theft case that the person arresting is a suspect in, is an ACTIVE INVESTIGATION, so of course Disney, Sources and the OCSO would be tight lipped. Why would any of the three randomly decide to go forth and say xyz on the matter and jeopardize the case. All we have is an acknowledgement of the case. It’s a delicate topic for everyone and bickering and arguing back and forth will not help at all. Sources won’t come out and say anything because they don’t want to inappropriately release anything too early, and are allowing information to come out from an official source (Disney and OSCO).
Overall, has anything like this Happen before, most likely. Has anything like this happen this publicly, if I was a betting man, I would wager No. Does it suck that it did happen, yes it does. However it’s partially Disney’s fault, if Buzzy was such a valuable item to the Walt Disney Company, it wouldn’t have sat there in a dormant state in the dormant remains of the theatre, especially with the many videos from urban explorers on YouTube. They should have acted sooner, especially if this was such a big part of many’s childhoods and not just a shot of nostalgia I mean they threw out the Body Wars motion simulators quicker than archives has been able to take everything from ImageWorks and Cranium Command. (And please don’t spare the the counter argument of Archives taking things from all around not the company; I’m aware of it and have better things to do.)
Now let the OSCO investigate and things will come out in due course. There is no point bickering over someone’s comments, and such. The world already has enough negativity as it is.
