For those who didn’t see it or don’t know: this is an Imperial Mudtrooper from the movie Solo.
It's 109 first team All-Americans.
It's a college football record 61 bowl appearances.
It's 34 bowl victories.
It's 24 Southeastern Conference Championships.
It's 15 National Championships.

At some places they play football. At Alabama we live it.

Yup, you made a clean sheet of it!

How many outfits do you have now? (PS - looks great, but I haven't had the heart to watch Solo yet, mostly because I'm annoyed they tried to do something with the 12 Parsecs gaffe, and I'm thinking it will only make me more stupid for watching it).

I came in expecting nothing, and enjoyed it far more than I expected to. It's not great, but it's not nearly as terrible as reviews might indicate either.

It's a fun movie and I agree that it's really not as bad as critics try to paint it. The cameo at the end though is pretty grating.

To be fair the cameo was pulled directly from the old expanded universe material. Kudos to them for doing that.

Oh, and they kinda sorta made sense of the 12 parsec distance/speed gaffe.

Sure, but for someone who doesn't follow the expanded universe at all, it totally threw me for a loop as the last thing I saw was him plunging to his death and I'm sure I wasn't the only one feeling super confused ;)

Haven't posted in a while. Here is a shot from a troop I did to benefit a charity that provides safe places for LGBTQ kids who don't have a place to go:

That's awesome - great that you're doing that.

I wonder what the Empire's stance is on LGTBQ issues generally. Apparently favorable!

My wife put on a good front for the first 9 months or so, but I can tell she really wants to be able to troop in person again.

She's done a few virtual troops in the last year, but they just aren't like being there with her friends, and I know it hurts her more than she lets on.

I also found out as things were getting bad last year that one of her Jawa friends she always just referred to as "Jawa Kate" was in fact an old friend of mine from when I used to do the KC Ren Fest that I hadn't seen in years. Looking forward to being able to reconnect with her once it's safe again.

Its killing me not being able to troop. We have a lot of time and money invested in this hobby and we have been at a freeze for 9 months.

Hopefully it won't be too long now. I like seeing the things you troopers get up to.
