About 4 months ago I was able to get my order in for the FISD (First Imperial StormTrooper Detachment) racing shirts. I saw a version of these being worn at C2E2 2016 by some 501st members and I wanted in. Well they finally arrived and boy howdy I am happy with the result.
I have gotten a bit caught up in all the 501st merchandise you can buy once you join. One thing I ordered a while ago was a custom FISD racing shirt on the detachment site whitearmor.net .
It finally arrived in the mail today. Very excited to get it. I feel like I’m official now. 😉
We all get together with new members of the garrison to help answer questions as they build their armor to become full members of the 501st. The latest our party had a good turnout with a lot of extra work being done on the armor and a few full members who decided to get a second set of armor and put them together. Good people, good food, good conversation = an awesome time.
I had my first official troop in April at a library. Droves of kids came out for Star Wars reading day!
