Would you turn them over to the police? Because that's what happened in Nanaimo, British Columbia last week:
If you were driving by the intersection of Fifth St and the Nanaimo Parkway on Tuesday September 12th at approximately 10:30 am, and saw dozens of Transformers lying on the side of the road, have no worries that a battle is looming between the honorable Optimus Prime and his evil arch enemy Megatron. These powerful beasts appear to have simply fallen off the back of a truck and ended up scattered along the highway and throughout the intersection.
An alert northbound motorist saw the Transformers roadside and pulled over,gathered them up and then turned over to the Nanaimo RCMP for safekeeping. A few pictures are attached of the items gathered up.
A story posted by the Nanaimo News Bulletin claimed that the owner of the figures contacted the RCMP and retrieved them. (But who knows if it was really the owner. "Sure, yeah, those are my Transformers...")
The RCMP posted a couple pics of the haul, and it's MIB stuff including a Prime First Edition Optimus and a Fury of Bonecrusher two-pack:
I'm honestly not sure how I'd react in this situation. Undoubtedly my brain would start shooting eBay auction prices into my eyes and I'd start thinking about what I could buy with the sales. But then I'd think about how I'd feel if I lost something like that in the road...I dunno!
