Darth Vader by MrE1967 Darth Vader by MrE1967
Darth Vader of the UK Garrison of the 501st Legion.

At the International Space Center in Leicester during the 22nd and 23rd of September.

I hope I put this in the right category. I didnít think this would fit in the Photojournalism category.

"Lord Vader, the store is out of orange juice."

*force grabs the nearest store clerk*

"WHAT have you DONE with the JUICE?"

"We know you are illegally harboring juice."

*force chokes clerk*

"Oh, Lord Vader, it turns out the juice was in the other isle. Silly me."

If I ever get the chance to see Darth this close, I am running up, and launching into the whole "Lord Vader, the Death Star Plans are not in the main computer" line.

But why are there no rebel troops? :?

Considering that most of the costumes were on the Imperial side there wasn’t too many good guys around. Lol.

I just wish I had realized that the guy dressed up as Silent Bob (Clerks and some other films) was really Kevin Smith when I first saw him. I only got a few pictures of him and not very good ones.

Lol! I walked right by him thinking it was just someone dressed up as Silent Bob that I didn’t turn around and stare at him and ask “are you Kevin Smith?” It was only later that I saw him in a restricted area posing like Silent Bob that it hit me that it was him…

I would guess that he is the same height as the actor who played him in the original trilogy, Dave Prowse at 6 ft 7 in (201 cm).

They will continue until they capture those Rebel troublemakers! :rofl:
It was a blast seeing them and interacting with the people. The Stormtroopers would randomly stop people and “interrogate” them be it an adult or kid. If there was a family member or friend with a camera the would have the prisoner on his knees with his hands on his head and the troopers would have their guns aimed at him.

This was during the last day when the Space Center was closing and the people in costumes were doing a parade through the museum to end outside where they all gathered (most of them anyways) for a final photo shoot with everyone. It was also the only time I saw that Imperial Guard guy during both days. Oh, just like Boba he is a little big around the belly.
