  1. Wow- a Million Dollars for his oscar? I had no idea it was worth that much! I'd love to see the pens, too to see why they were worth 80,000 EU! This had to be an inside job to be so specific. Do they want the gold from the oscar, I wonder?

    1. One report said it may have been done for a specific collector. What are they going to do with it? Show it to certain people? It's not like they could sell it. It makes no sense. Sounds like an inside job and perhaps they may even know who did it. It happened in early January and the public is just now hearing about it. Perhaps they are trying to use the media to pressure the thief into giving the stuff up.

      I'm curious about the pens as well.
