    May 17, 2008, 5:49 PM - Props to the local 501st #1

    Although I'm not affiliated with the Dune Sea Garrison, I want to express my appreciation for them. These guys were standing in the hot weather of AZ for the good of society; taking pictures with children and others at the local Costco for 5 dollars. All of the proceeds went to charity.

    Props, Tucson 501st!

    Sad, though, I didn't see Boba Fett...

    Here's some shots, I didn't get to go inside because I forgot my Costco card and the door guy would NOT let me go in. Also, please forgive the quality of photos, they were from my phone.

    This was just a little guy, I had to squat down for the picture and I'm only 5' 5". His mom said the 501st approval was tough.


    This guy completely scratch made his Sandtrooper.


    Clones! Almost as good as a mandalorian!


    There's the guy that was not letting me go in!!! (and Darth and a stormtrooper)


    Finally, everyone loves a Tusken Raider!

    Wow, awesome pics, and I am also wowed about the Arizona heat. I declined an event today because it is too dang hot.

    It is a wonderful thing to have this much fun and make money for charities!

    I love Trooping!!! If I still lived in AZ, I would go to every event.
    We only get 3-4 Troops a year in Colorado.

    That's soooo cool! I can't wait to complete my ESB Fett and hopefully join the 501st. I'd love to make little kids happy and troop. Nothing more enjoyable than being my favorite character and making people happy.

    I love the Jawa I wonder how old the "little guy" is. ithought there was a age limit to join.That is presuming that is a minor dressed as a Jawa or as in "little guy" do you mean "little person/adult"

    Those guys in the Jundland Wastes Squad are crazy... heat doesn't bother them!

    They were raising money for the Children's Miracle Network - the money was going toward the Tucson Medical Center Children's Hospital. A great cause! There's more about it on the Dune Sea Garrison Website.
