    Oh well, you've got a great Fett, I wouldn't have minded seeing you up there!! I didn't want to get my hopes up, there are a ton of Fetts in SoCal I'm surprised no one posted about the Parade needed characters on the forum!

    yeah I heard about it only 2 days before the deadline from Obi-Dan who got the email from the Rebel Legion. Oh yeah Obi-Dan didn't get in either. You still going to help decorate the float right Andy?

    I also heard about it days before the deadline, if I had a week or so longer, I would have painted up my new jet pack, new kneepads, and would have paid Ruffkin more to send me my parts quicker, haha!!

    Since Obi-Dan is in my area and is part of the Rebel Legion in my area, I bet he got the exact same e-mail I did at the same time. It's a shame he didn't get selected either, he pulls off a wonderful Obi-Wan.

    Also, I won't be going to Pasadena to work on the floats, it just doesn't seem like it's worth it, and I doubt I'll care to watch it on TV. The whole parade has been irritating me as a whole, the entire selection process seemed unfair and appeared to be completely random. Random as in select all of the officers, and then fill in the rest of the positions with random members or SoCal members. I don't mean to sound jealous, but there were some great marchers in my garrison who didn't get selected so some marchers who were horrible and have screwed up costumes got selected, then bragged about it their amazing skills.

    Yeah the sucky thing about Obi-dan is that he used my address here in California (i only live like 20 min from Pasadena) He basically lives here now anyway and will be moving in the new year. Yeah I kind of have to agree w/ you on the selecting process. I have a feeling they just did that to appease alot of us costumers. They had already made up their minds long before the deadline. oh well.. Que Sera, Sera

    Hehe, I understand them preferring the other costumed characters to be SoCal members, but I didn't feel like I was an equal with the rest of the legion as was told when I saw who got selected all together. I wasn't a good marcher, I knew I wasn't going

    Andy, sorry you didn't get in the parade mate

    your costume is good though, but i suppose there can only be a certain number of ppl selected. I hope there wasn't internal politics involved because your costume is great and would have looked good in the parade

    Hey Ronin, I don't want to confuse my Fett's submission with the marching submission as a Stormtrooper. 200 Stormtroopers of the legion were selected to go to the Rose Parade in Pasadena, and other characters are also going in attendence. I didn't make it in as a Trooper, now not Fett, oh well.

    There are no politics involved at all, I believe Lucasfilm realised that picking the top 200 marchers out of 800 people was quite a challenge!! So it appears they took another route in choosing people. I don't want to start any controversy though


    I'd like to say congrats to the Fett who did get selected! Does anyone have any idea who it was?

    Sorry mate, it wasn't my intention to stir anything up. Its just a real shame you didn't get the chance to show off, IMO, a fantastic costume.

    Hope i didn't offend you

    Will the Rose Parade Boba please step forward?

    Heh Heh Heh... well you know, I always said that too until you look at pics of yourself from behind and realize that without it you get droopy drawers. No offense but you could use the thong.

    As for the selection process, sorry you weren't picked but your comments about not watching the parade now that you aren't going come off sounding like nothing more than sour grapes. There's plenty of worthy troops going and believe it or not, it wasn't random. There was a lot of in depth video watching to get to that point. Trust me. You may not agree with all the selections but believe me, there was a lot of thought behind them.

    As for who IS going, I am. Not as Fett though... as a stormtrooper. I was one of the 200 selected to be flown to Los Angeles to march in the 2007 Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year's Day. Its going to be amazing to troop with so many folks from all around the world!

    So, that aside... will the Rose Parade Boba and Jango please stand up? You've gotta come from here right?

    It looks as if I am in as Boba Fett!!!
    I got my notice via email this morning.
    Our Jango Fett 581 (Brian Schaubmayer) and a TIE Pilot 891 (Bridget Maguire) were also selected.
    I guess I will see some of you in a month or so in Pasadena!

    If they don't come from here, then I will be throwing sour grapes all over the place.

    i think it would be ok... i had enough TDH mods present for the thong photos that there's some level of implied consent there

    As for the sour grapes, I knew I wasn't going to march in the parade as my Stormtrooper, I really sucked at marching. The members of my garrison who marched and practiced for months, who were really good at what they did, got pushed out for the garrison officers, that's what upset me about the whole thing. If you were in my garrison during the marching and selection process, you might understand my opposition.

    I am not jealous that Darren got selected, I think it's great!! He's got a great Fett and he will represent us all in the parade
