In a Bantha Tracks editorial in the Feb/Mar 2012 issue of Star Wars Insider (on newsstands now!) entitled "Best of My Year: Advanced Fan Cooperation," Lucasfilm's Mary Franklin writes:

"Fortunately for me, in addition to the oft-discouraging headlines of "real world" affairs, I also have daily access to stories from and about members of the worldwide Star Wars fan community. These hometown miracle workers are not only continuing to make a huge difference for good, but also are reaching out to other fan groups in a spirit of cooperation, often multiplying their effectiveness. In September, I attended a Star Wars-themed baseball game in Phoenix, and saw firsthand how the Arizona 501st, Rebel Legion, and the Mandalorian Mercs could work together and have a good time, as diverse parts of a greater whole."

Mary goes on to discuss how the different Star Wars fan groups "have a shared passion for Star Wars, and almost always have a shared passion for tremendous community service and charity work."

I want to second her thoughts, and congratulate you all not only on your mad costuming skills, but the sense of community you have all built...not only among other Star Wars costuming groups, but other groups like the R2 Builders, the Arizona Ghostbusters, JLAz, and the Arizona Avengers...and working towards common goals of positive works in both the geek world and the "real world."

Good work everybody...I'm very proud of you!
