    Greg and Jim brought me here, blame them. Any who, I just moved to Knoxville from NY, was working on my armor with the ECG up there. Completed my DT with Greg down here, went on my first troop with Greg at Kingsport Conapalooza last month. Looking to hopefully submit soon, just fixing a few things beforehand. Hope to meet everyone soon.

    Hello everyone! My name is Aurore Bivins and I just received my ID number, 64808! I live in Knoxville, TN and joining the 501st has been a goal of mine for 15 years. Now that my ANH Staff Officer has been approved, I'm going to get started on my Kessel Run Qi'ra. It's a huge honor to be a member of this group. I want to thank everyone at the booth at Fanboy Expo for being so encouraging and helpful when it came to submitting my application and making me feel welcome. I would appreciate full access to the boards so I can start participating.

    Hey guys! I'm Laryssa, and I recently got my RL stripes in the Corellian Base end of January. Not in the 501st obviously, but Jyn may have a forged scan doc lying around that may say otherwise... I've known of the 501st/RL for years and have always wanted to join, but couldn't decide on a character until Rogue One. I've gotten to meet a handful of you all at a few events the past month or so -- it has been awesome, and everyone's been so welcoming! I'm looking forward to getting out there and doing more

    Hello! I'm Kyle Birdwell from Sweetwater TN, and I've been passionate about costuming for some time now, and I've finally decided it's time to finish my TD kit. I've always known about the 501st but a few years ago I was made aware of the MidSouth Garrison from the 501st booth at the Knoxville Fanboy Comic-Con. I'm hoping to get to know the garrison members in my area and start finishing my armor

    That sounds awesome. Next time there’s one I’ll definitely join so that I can figure out what to expect and do. I tried getting out to the ICCC last weekend but time was not on my side. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey there! My name is Robby and I just moved to Spring Hill, TN for work in April. We are from Southern California and I was an active member with the SoCal Garrison (Orange County Squad). I’m hoping to get involved and meet some fellow troopers.

    Hey yall My name is John and i currently live in Ashland City. Im very excited to join and to learn how to build some armor. Im thinking about buying a set of shadow trooper armor from WTF from a 501st member who cant fit in it but the only problem i have is that its on Ebay and apparently Ebay is the devil for ordering armor.... Ive attached a picture of the armor set because i cant tell if its good or bad quality.

    I run 18 facebook groups about toy collecting focusing on Star Wars www.imperialcommissary.com the main group “The Imperial Commissary” has over 19k members The Imperial Commissary is the most active and largest Vintage Star Wars Collecting group on facebook. www.facebook.com/groups/theimperialcommissary I also have a podcast about vintage Star Wars www.imperialcommissary.com/icsw . I have run 14 meetups over the years all over the world and it is time to grow into an annual convention locally. These groups have given me very exclusive access to Sci-Fi celebrities and their agents many of whom are part of the IC. With your help locally and my worldwide Sci-Fi Connections I am sure that after a few years this will become the premiere convention in the United States for Sci-Fi. Star Wars is so unbelievably hot right now and I am uniquely plugged in to the Star Wars community. The IC Collectors Convention (ICCC) www.icCollectorsConvention.com is for EVERY type of collector, from Aliens to Voltron with plenty of Star Wars mixed in! ICCC will take place on 9-15-2018, VIP exclusive access on 9-14 in Nashville TN, USA. I have rented a 178,000sqft arena that I am filling with stars signing autographs (William Shatner, Mike Quinn, Cas Anvar, Gerald Home ect.), cosplay groups (501st, Mando Mercs, Rebel Legion, ect.), kids activities (Jawa Rocks ect) vintage toy vendors, grading companies (AFA + CAS), activities (Derby City Pit Crew, HSPPA, star cars, panels (Jim Swearingen, Kim Simmons, Duncan Jenkins, Ron Salvatore ect.) podcasts and artists from all over the world! It will be an annual convention for us all to look forward to every year where water doesn't cost 8 bucks and parking is free. Since there is no such thing, I am creating #ICCC ! Finally a massive convention that is by collectors, for collectors!

    Thanks for the warm welcome, guys!! Happy to be here! Yes!!! I am slowly putting that together...there are a lot of pieces parts, haha. I still need to order the armor, and I plan to do that from 850 Armor Works as soon as it's available! I haven't heard of this space station you created... was it anything like Tarkin's?
