In this episode of Anomaly, Jen is joined by “Sith Jen” as they crash a 501st armor building party at the TechShop in Round Rock, Texas. See the show notes for photos galore!

The 501st Legion is an international Star Wars costuming club, started in 1997 by Albin Johnson (Member designation TK-210). It is an all volunteer charity organization whose primary purpose is to raise money for a multitude of charities.

While armor party crashing they get a chance glimpse into the process of costume building a Republic Commando (thats a special Clone Trooper) They also scored an interview with Boba Fett, AKA Josh Powers, (BH 15173), one of the legions “Infamous” level Boba Fetts. He tells them everything they need to know about the organization and how to get in. In addition to all this, he tells the Jens how the 501st Legion lead him to his true love—Niki Powers (BH-14019), AKA: Boushh the Bounty Hunter/ Princess Leia.
