This photo makes it seem like the lightsaber is MORE than just somehting Finn picks up to defend himself.

For Day 37 until TFA, I present this photo of myself from Halloween 1983, rocking my Boba Fett mask before getting all the way dressed up for candy time.

I know you're thinking, OMG, is that a 9 year old kid or is that a guy wearing Mandalorian combat armor? The costume, purchased from our local TG&Y, was pretty amazing.

I didn't know he passed... I'm so happy he got to see the movie. I know it seems like such an easy decision, but I'm sure there were a ton of hoops to jump through to pull it off... God bless JJ, Lucas and everyone else who made it happen in time.


What is 501st?

From the about page:
"...The Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work..."

To Promote Interest in Star Wars
While a growing number of people are experiencing a reawakening of their Star Wars fandom, new generations are seeking ways to celebrate their passion for George Lucas's modern mythology. The 501st Legion brings these fans together, reinforcing the enduring longevity of the Star Wars saga.
To Facilitate the Use of Costumes
Some fans are content to collect action figures...other fans want to be action figures. Nothing professes your passion quite like building your own detailed costume replica of a classic Star Wars villain, and there's nothing quite like the feeling that comes from bringing the characters of Star Wars into the real world and sharing the magic with others.
To Contribute
While our organization was founded to simply provide a collective identity for costuming fans with similar interests, the 501st is proud to put its resources to good use through fundraising, charity work, and volunteerism. Read more about our charity work here.

It's really disappointing 501st members won't get to attend the movie on opening night in full costume.

Neat story. Those pics from the link were both happy and sad. Seeing his beautiful wife and somebody who looked to be his mother / mother in law in the background of some of those pics... those that were left behind with heavy hearts. T&P, and thanks to "Star Wars" for making his last day good ones!

Which button calls your mom to come pick you up?

By far, Triumph's best bit. It would be amazing if he does this for TFA.
I Have Spoken

Yep. Triumph's Star Wars bit is the best, but the Bon Jovi one is a close second. The only point where I felt embarrassed for these folks is when they showed them acting out scenes from The Phantom Menace.

Neither your insurance or warranty is going to cover that. Time to call the junker and part it out.

Triumphs best line ever... so much win!!!


Edit: "Here's a spoiler... you will die alone!" That was pretty money too!

Makes you wonder if perhaps he escapes with someone else. We don't believe Finn is a pilot, right?

Just interesting to see the panels of the "wings" are a meshy material. I had always wondered...

The irony is that Jenkins wasn't the reason they got slaughtered.

My oldest had a birthday party at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL....it was Star Wars themed. Just so happens the 501st were doing something at the Center that weekend. Vader and a couple of Stormtroopers dropped by and took pictures with all the kids. Not sure who was more excited....my son or me.

The Disney Channel is advertising a sneak preview of TFA at 730 on Friday during Girl Meets World. Not real sure what they will be showing.
