Scimitar's Troop Log - TK17529 - 6 Troops

Recommended Posts

Troop #: 1

Date: September 28, 2018

Location: Fayetteville, GA

Event: Pinewood Studios "The Last Jedi" Friday Night Movie

Event Charity: Armed Forces Mission - Intervention of local veterans at risk of suicide

 

First deployment went perfectly! A little rain reduced the expected turnout a bit as it was an outside event, but it was perfect for shaking down the new kit and lots of fun was had regardless! There were a ton of smiles and high fives and people asking for pictures.

 

I'm already planning to attend Trooping Anonymous as I now understand why this is so addictive. Next troop is tomorrow!

 

Pictures:

 

Someone gave this Rebel a blaster!

Troop #: 2

Date: September 30, 2018

Location: Roswell, GA

Event: Aurora Cineplex and The Fringe Miniature Golf 8th Birthday Bash!

Event Charity: N/A

 

Second deployment went just as well as the first! This was a much larger event with hundreds of attendees and we had 25-30 participants show up ranging from Jawas to the boss himself. Lots of smiles, hugs, high fives, pictures, videos and explaining to kids that TK17529 really is my name. :smiley-sw013: Oh, and that I wasn't a robot.

 

I started the event by commandeering a SWAT Armored Vehicle, no easy feat in armor!

Great spot for targeting Rebels, not so great for getting in and out of:

Second we arrested a scavenger who was attempting to steal an orange and white BB unit:

Got some pictures with the boss and his daughter:

Pretty sure Leia is looking for a weak spot in my armor:

And a group shot because a handful of us ended up together:

Troop #: 3

Date: October 13, 2018

Location: Newnan, GA

Event: Zombie And Super Hero Day

Event Charity: Make-A-Wish, Promotion for Star Wars Reads (Coweta County Library System)

 

Third deployment was a fun one, the weather was perfect, and it was a great mix of all kinds of superheroes, villains, and zombies. I brought out the DLT-19 just in case any of those zombies got too rowdy. Kids and adults alike all had a blast as there were so many genres being represented in one spot.

Troop #: 4

Date: October 13, 2018

Location: The Barn at Oak Manor, Newnan, GA

Event: Wedding of Chadwick & Purvis

Event Charity: The Zone at CHOA

 

This was a surprise to the bride and groom who both love Star Wars very much. The groom submitted the request but the follow up was done through the wedding coordinator, so they had no idea that anyone had actually signed up. So TK 64622 and I (both of us now being referred to as "The Surprise") got prepared and as soon as the bride and groom were announced at the end of their ceremony, the doors opened and we proceeded down the aisle to escort the bride and groom back out. It was hard to tell who was more excited: the bride, the groom, or those in attendance, but I'm pretty sure it was the groom. We were asked to participate in the photos and we also made sure to take photos with anyone who asked.

 

That was an awesome experience and an honor to be a part of.

Troop #: 5

Date: October 28, 2018

Location: Zoo Atlanta

Event: Boo At The Zoo

Event Charity: N/A

 

We had amazing weather for this event, considering it had been cold and raining in the days leading up to this event, so the turnout was awesome. The Great Jawa Horde was out in force and Sandy the Sandcrawler even made an appearance.

I attempted to protect my Garrison mates and take out a zombie, but you know how that goes...

Troop #: 6

Date: October 30, 2018

Location: Coweta County Central Library

Event: Coweta County Library - Star Wars Reads

Event Charity: N/A

 

This was a smaller event helping to support family and literacy programs at one of the local libraries. The turnout was still great and the kids really enjoyed our presence!

So the base underneath all that is a retired Ford bus (you can sort of see it over the Jawa's shoulder in the picture above). I don't quite remember what they're made of but the panels are attached to the bus via a metal framework system and are removable and all fit inside the bus itself. It's amazing to see in person!!
