Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope

In what’s either a cool decoration for this weekend’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story premiere in Hollywood or yet another example of some asshole in Los Angeles who thinks the rules don’t apply to him, a life-size X-Wing fighter has appeared in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard. It appears to be a standard T-65B model (not the newer T-70), and it’s decorated in a traditional Red Squadron paint job much like the X-Wing flown by Rebel Alliance pilot Luke Skywalker during the Battle Of Yavin.

Variety says the ship is located between Ivar Avenue and Vine Street, and it has caused a handful of mildly disruptive road closures. You can see some photos of the X-Wing from Twitter below:

If this sounds like an X-Wing fighter that belongs to someone you know—or if you are Luke Skywalker—please contact the Galactic Empire as soon as possible. Your compliance will not be rewarded, but it is mandatory.
