In most areas the 501st works hand in hand with the Rebel Legion.

It's a college football record 61 bowl appearances.
It's 34 bowl victories.
It's 24 Southeastern Conference Championships.

I think those are a few ladies who either were “handlers” or they had simple Jedi costumes, etc. At some point the Rebel Legion garrison had a “Jawa party” where they all got together and did Jawa costumes over a weekend.

Even vast galactic bureaucracies have charity arms. Only charities approved by the Emperor, of course, or the council he set up to head up public relations.

So I have been trooping and haven't posted photos. Let me see if I can find a few of the good ones:

The McWane Science Center celebrated it's 20th. It was a blast playing with all the kids there and helping them out:

Wait, don't you want the gun handle pointing the other way? I've never used a gun in a holster, but that seems awkward for drawing your weapon (but would seem to make it easier for someone else to pull it out of the holster, which seems less than ideal).

FWIW, you're right, it's backwards. At least for earthlings. No idea about Star Wars canon.

Maybe he's a lefty and the Empire teaches them to draw across their body for maximum movement and potential to miss your target.

That's an impossible cant for crossdraw. Convincingly missing your target still requires pointing in their general direction.

I imagine it's nice to have an option that doesn't involve wearing a helmet. Does it get pretty toasty in there after awhile?

It's Director Orson Krennic's uniform.

He's left handed (the actor too) so they had him cross draw. He's always escorted by Death Troopers anyway so he doesn't have a lot of need to quick draw on people.

Hey msd - new job opening for you:
If you think you have what it takes to defend the Dark Side in a galaxy far, far away, Disneyland may have the perfect job for you.

Ahead of the highly anticipated opening of "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge," Disneyland is holding two open casting calls on Friday for Stormtroopers.
