    Feb 14, 2008, 12:25 AM - MY FIRST TROOP PICS AS BH-2367 #1

    I just wanted to post my very first 501st troop/event dinner fundraiser at a local YMCA held in San Diego last night. this fundraising event raised just over $190,000 for local children and families. the YMCA teams were split up into groups of seven for the year with each group raising just over $7,000 each. we were told that the 501st raised a 1/3 of that in multiple events, that's amazing. had a lot of fun doing this and certainly can't wait for the next. I'm hooked let me tell ya fellas, the chicks dug the Fett man last night

    Your costume looks great! However, that's the shortest Vader I've ever seen. Kinda reminds me of Spaceballs.

    Aaaawwwh, the joy of the 1st troop!

    Not sure if the fabric is catching more of the camera flash, but are your gloves weathered to the same degree as your vest & suit?

    In any case: Awesome job!

    Vader: No disintigrations
    Boba: You don't intimidate Lord Vader (takes Vader lightsaber and holds it over his head)
    Vader: Hey give me that (jumps up and done trying to get back lightsaber)
    Boba: Hahaha, can't reach (brings lightsaber down, where Vader can almost reach, then lifts it way up when Vader jumps)
    Vader: Come on, seriously now, it just isn't funny anymore

    Hehe, sorry just had this image in my head. Looked like a great time. Fantastic costume, and outstanding amount of money raised!

    Congrats on your first troop, dude! Sounds like it was a VERY successful event. Just one thing I noticed that may have happened to you that happened to me VERY often during my first troops as Fett. I think you fell victim to the "limbo Fett!" The jet pack tends to pull your center of mass backwards, and you stand up leaning backwards. I know this happens to multiple people out there, so don't worry.

    thanks for the comments guys. yeah JB, I suffer from severe back problems. as a matter of fact, I just now returned from the Hospital where I had an MRI on my back. I think I have a slipped disk so standing for long periods of time and wearing that JP really takes it's toll on my spine.
