Chris Lewis, BH-3836, passed away on Sunday, May 27th, 2012. Chris was a passionate trooper and a fierce friend who brought a smile to the face of those who knew him. The mission of the Legion reaching out to help children was a perfect fit to his character of community service. Star Garrison and the Legion as a whole will miss their brother-in-arms, but will not forget him as we carry him forever in our hearts.

This August, the 501st Legion and Pizzazz Scenic Contractors, Inc. are bringing a real monster to Star Wars Celebration VI. Scheduled to make its world debut at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, daring fans will have the opportunity to have their photo taken in the grip of a full-scale replica of Jabba the Hutt's favorite pet Rancor. Click here for the teaser video! Special thanks to Imperial Foam (yes, that's their real name) for providing the materials to make it happen.
