"...a burning brand to your enemies, a brilliant fire to your friends."
A professional photographer approached my Rebel Legion Base looking for anyone willing to pose for pictures to add to his portfolio, so of course I volunteered.
I spent 6 hours in the attic of an old rundown closed night club in New Bedford dressed as a Jedi and then a Pirate for photos. Despite the 90 degree heat it was a lot of fun and some pretty cool photos were taken. This being one of them. ^_^

It has Been 15 years since the Clone War and the Galactic Civil War. Despite their training to follow orders many clones left the Empire for disagreement for the future after Order66. Now the many brave troopers who walked into the rusty bridge to the H$lls of War against Palpatines Empire can at last rest. Here is where they rest and here is where they will be remembered.
The Legend of Sonic Company
During the Battle of Yavin after the Death Star's Destruction. The empire sent 40,000 Imperial Troops to avenge the Death Star. The Helmets you see in Front of you are the very troopers that defected from the Empire to support the Rebels. Why are they remembered? What is the big deal. Reason they fought an entire 40,000 strong army aimed at crushing the rebels. When it was time to evacuate Luke said to them, Come on we're leaving. But the the squad leader said, Go Go, we have take out that Anti-Ship Cannon at the highlands. Leave us and tell everyone we'll miss them. Luke and the other Rebels took off. while the small band of Sonic Company troopers charged head first into the army of 40,000. Only one trooper got to the anti-ship gun and destroyed it. Luke and his unit got out. that last thing he saw was ball of blinding light and a Mushroom cloud. Sonic Company went with a Bang.

I'm honored that one of the characters I co-created (w/ Pablo Hidalgo) for Lucasfilm and the Star Wars Universe is going to be the Star Wars Celebration VI 1:6 scale Sideshow exclusive figure! More pictures in the coming days
I really wish that I'd taken the time to braid my hair instead of using my Leia braid. I was just so exhausted from staying up all night, trooping earlier that morning, and then being in a 90 degree attic for the shoot.
