I've been curious about what all the nordic countries are doing for the Episode 1 3D release.
Maybe this can be a thread to tell a bit about it and post pictures from the events? I would at least think it's very interessting.

So far in Helsinki we've trooped at the cinema for the pre-sale for tickets and we've also done a viral shortfilm in the metro. It was cought by many people and some people sent pictures to the biggest newspapers here about that Darth Vader just happened to be in the metro with them that morning.

Here is the viral video:

And a picture from the "making of" if you will.



And a couple from the cinema trooping.

Do you think you could write up some kind of report, story about what you did. Could be good to put up on the NB website as well.

I hopte to get something more written up, especially when I get hold of more pictures.

Anyway the event at Sergel was a really fun troop. From the Rebel side there was queen Amidala and two tuskens, and some other members who chose their imperial costumes this time.

Here's a group pic before it all started.

Off topic but I've been working on instructions for how to add news etc to the NG site so that we can keep ours more active. Once people have tested them a few times I'll tweak them for the NB site so you guys can get an active website.

Sorry but I've been swamped with stuff as I try to clean up my desk before stepping down as NG CO.

The Episode 1 3D-premiere in Stockholm was a great success. Nordic Garrison and Nordic Base arrived at Filmstaden Sergel, the main cinema in Stockholm at the moment, in the afternoon, suited up and got ready to troop. From 17.00 we mingled in the foyer, scaring and exciting the cinema goers. The cinema was crowded, and eventhough Star Wars was shown on two smaller screens, our presence was appreciated by people coming to see other films.

At 17.30 the Swedish dubbed version was screened, and Darth Maul and Queen Amidala got the chance to present the film and get the audience reday for the show. The English version was shown at 18.30, but that was presented by Darth Maul by himself, since Amidala had realised she wouldn't be able to fit into a seat and had to get changed before the film started. People with costumes that took up less space chose to watch the film all suited up though. It was quite sight to see R2 and R5 stand on guard under the screen while a whole row of royal guards, stormtroopers, tuskens and Darth Maul were sitting with their 3D-glasses on, getting ready for the film.

The troopers that had a possibility to stay also presented the 23.30 showing. All in all it was a great fun evening and the audience loved meeting up with Star Wars characters and droids.

These are only reports from troops that I attended myself. Anything inbetween I can't really write about...

Tennispalatsi.

The troop on 31th of Januray was a different one for sure, as we all met at 7.00 a small production company to change into our armour before heading for the metro and morning rush to shoot a viral short film that FS Filmi would use for their PR for Episode 1 The Phantom Menace.
The shooting started at ca. 8.30 at Railwaystation metro station and lasted for about an hour. The actors were:

Nordic Garrion:

SL-7588 Juhani Seppala

TK-7276 Jani Turku

SL-7690 Jyri Venhola


Nordic Base:

Elith Dupar

Support:

Jouku


After a few hours brake, we met again (this time without SL-7690) at cinema Tennispalatsi in the center of Helsinki, for the pre-sales of Episode 1. We had competitions there and kids (and adults) got to "Shoot the Stormtrooper" with Nerg guns and won a Episode 1 poster if they won 1 out of 3.
I'm afraid I don't remember the exact time of the beggining and end of this cinema troop.





Bio Rex Sello.

On saturday the 11th of Februray, four Rebels, two NG Younglings, three kids and one NG support (and future trooper) headed to cinema Bio Rex in Sello mall in Finland to promote Episode 3 The Phantom Menace.
We started our troop ca 14.30 and it ended at 18.00 when we were allowed to watch a screening of the film, free of charge including drinks and snacks.

During our troop, we also got the chance to register the tickets at the entrance of the different movie screenings which was a different experience for sure. We interacted mostly with people during the waiting times before films, and posed for pictures of course.

Troopers were all from NB:

SL-9826 (Emma Komulainen)

TI-9827 (Tapio Komulainen)

Star Wars Episode 1 3D 10 Feb 2012 Göteborg - Event Report (written by BH0518, Nordic Garrison)

Troopers on Site:

Varg as Sandtrooper
Janne as Chewbacca
Jonas as Biker Scout
Robin as Tie Pilot

Support
BH0518

A short and sweet troop. I arrived shortly after 16 and handed over a USB stick with some background Fx for the troop. Whilest there Varg arrived and got changed into his TD. We started working the crowd while we waited for the rest of the crew to arrive. Which they did.. and got changed as well.

We hanged around the entry for 30 mins or so before we moved up to the entry to the cinema hall itself and made sure everyone got inside. As the comercials started to roll we got ready to go inside and draw the wining numbers for the lottery. Unfortunately there were only ca 50 people in their biggest theater so our reception was pretty mild to say the least.

After the prizes were handed out, to the absent minded applauds, we left the theater, took a few more photos with the visitors before heading up and getting changed.
