On September 25th, the Build-A-Bear Workshop, partnering with LucasFilm Limited, held a number of Star Wars releases across the United States to celebrate the release of a new series of Star Wars liscenced bears. Troopers from the New England Garrison attended two such events in Kingston, MA and Natick, MA, where troopers greeted patrons and posed for pictures.
“Had a great time today! It was alot of fun”, noted Christina, one of the Biker Scouts who attended along with an Imperial Gunner and Darth Vader at the Kingston store, while troopers at the Natick Mall echoed the sentiment.
In addition to the NEG’s participation, donations were made to Toys for Tots from the fans who who showed up to see the Bears and 501st in person!
