    This is just funny, though a ridiculous overreach of the TSA (again). Probably one of them wanted to keep it as a souvenir. :whatever:

    The canesaber in dispute:

    I guess Hyperspace travel is too pricey these days.

    Well, the lightsabre is a deadly weapon, though an elegant one, for a more civilized age.

    I'm missing TSA's (stated) reasoning for trying to confiscate it...

    There was no official explanation I saw either but my guess is to prevent someone getting a beat down for daring to mess with a Wookiee in a confined space like the cabin of an airplane. I still think someone wanted to keep it for themselves unofficially.

    Just saw another report saying that they thought the cane was "too heavy" and therefor suspicious.

    The thing is made out of solid acrylic - of COURSE it's heavy. It's also see through - he's not hiding a blow dart or drugs in there.

    TSA is ridiculous. They all need to be fired.

    I suppose the TSA realized It's not wise to upset a Wookie.

    I can understand that concern but would they have done the same had this been merely a simple wooden cane?
