Over the weekend of November 2nd and 3rd members from the 501st Legion and the Rebel Legion arrived in Providence, RI to attend the mega-convention called Rhode Island Comic Con! This was the biggest gathering of Legion members in the area to date, bringing folks from all over New England, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Florida to the region. We were also joined by Star Wars author Ryder Windham, who met his fans and signed copies of his books. This convention was extra special because it brought two giants together for the first time; Roxy the Rancor and her owner, the mighty Jabba the Hutt. We also inducted Barbara Goodson (the voice actor of Mother Talzin from The Clone Wars) as an Honorary Member of both the 501st and Rebel Legion. As if this wasn’t good enough, we also saw a reunion of the actors who portrayed the Bounty Hunters from Empire Strikes Back. This was an amazing weekend that saw all kinds of great Star Wars action and we are looking forward to going back later this year.
