Detachment, Sweet Detachment...

Several villainous Star Wars costumes have new homes in the Detachments of the 501st Legion.

Mos Eisley spy Garindan, cantina con artists the Tonnika Sisters, Jabba the Hutt's Gamorrean Guards and his majordomo Bib Fortuna, all previously bearing no Detachment affiliation, have been entrusted to the Krayt Clan Detachment.
Meanwhile, the expanded universe Snow Scout and Episode III Galactic Marine have been transferred to the Blizzard Force Detachment, where they will both have a new home with their cold-weather brethren.

If any of these costumes or characters have ever intrigued you, be sure to visit Krayt Clan or Blizzard Force today to get the guidance you'll need to recreate their costumes!

In Memoriam: Richard LeParmentier

We pause and pay tribute at the passing of 501st Legion Honorary Member Richard LeParmentier, who will forever be known for his iconic portrayal of Admiral Motti in Star Wars: A New Hope, the first person to ever feel the Force at the hands of Darth Vader, and as a true friend to his many fans around the world.

On April 15th, fate and its sorcerer's ways took him from us, all too soon. On behalf of all members of the 501st Legion, we extend our deepest condolences and sympathy to his friends and family at this tragic time. You will be missed, Richard.

Buckets off, troopers.
