I think there are a few bases/Garrisons planning on 30th Anniversary Photo Shoots. I'm working on finishing my Sail Barge Luke for submission in the next three weeks. I still have some tweaking with it but I have progress pics on my Facebook. I've worn it a few times, had a blast and can't wait till I feel comfortable enough in character and submit it for approval.

RoTJ was a great movie. I wasn't a huge fan of the ewoks...still think Wookiees would have been better & less cute, but the begining & end of RoTJ was great !

Ya know what? I was 6 when this came out, and I accept the fact that, at that age, the Ewoks were awesome.

I also, at the time, enjoyed the Ewoks cartoon, and the Caravan of Courage/Battle for Endor made-for-tv movies.

Don't judge me.

As a B-wing pilot, RotJ will always be one of my favorite movies. Smile

Has anyone seen this yet? I'm curious if there are any B-wing pilot pictures that weren't in the hardcover book (which only had one little picture).

Not yet. But in the meantime, how's this?
