Members of the 501st Legion, Mandalorian Mercs, Rebel Legion, and the Dark Empire attended the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiere movie showings at West Arces Cinema opening night.


Official members posed for pictures with other costume attendees and fans boosting excitement for the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga.


Members of the clubs posed for pictures, gave out high-fives, passed out trading cards, and answered questions.  Rex Dha’Werda spent 20 minutes on his knees answering questions from a 7 year old.  Those kids are sure full of lots of questions.


Nanuk had fun when kitting up with swapping her helmet with Boba Fett’s and vice versa.


Rex Dha’Werda with Boba Fett, both Mandalorian but from very different time periods.  Late Crusader and Modern eras.

Erik Powell from Bismarck’s ATA Karate made it out from Bismarck for this event to troop in his Darth Vader kit.


This event marked Fester’s (Jorj Quick’s) the snowtrooper’s 100th Blizzard Force troop.  So great to have everyone there for it.

After trooping from 5 – 8 p.m. we dekitted and got ready to watch the showing ourselves.  There were some fun Star Wars merchandise to bring home afterwards as well.
