BMS owes the 501st Legion a thank you for the support of many of its members at the Celebration V Star Wars convention. Vader’s Fist, we salute you! Oh! The 501st Legion also has its own Podcast which has been running for just over a year. Check it out.
The photo of the Death Star Gunner was taken at Baltimore Comic Con a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t get the chance to talk to any of the 501st at the show due to our surprise inundation with sketches and activity around our table. Fortunately, I did have a chance to snap this picture of the excellent costume of one of my favorite Imperial soldiers.
