One of the things that I was most excited about with the new Star Wars movie was all of the little details.Â StarWars.com has an article about all of the little details that you may have missed the first time you saw Clone Wars.Â Click HERE to jump to the article.
When I was out at the San Diego ComicCon, I went to the Lucasfilm party.Â There at the party they had gifts for the guests.Â The coolest of these being the Clone Wars Ammo box with a patch inside.Â I was checking out the patch and realized that it was made to look like one of the painting that the WWII pilots would put on their planes.Â I think that its called nose art.Â I love the patch, but didn’t know what to do with it.
Then it hit me!Â The Star Wars fan costuming club is called the 501st.Â The name is derived (I suppose) from the WWII 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment.Â So I thought that the perfect way to wear the patch was to find an WWII officer shirt!Â I used my Indiana Jones shirt and it worked perfect.Â The finishing touch was of course to add my pin from the Philippine Outpost of the 501st Legion of Stormtroopers.Â 😀
At San Diego ComicCon Otto said that he was going to use the ammo box to store his pens.Â I thought that was a great idea.Â I wonder if I’ll have any trouble flying with an Ammo can in my luggage?Â 😀
wow! the Philippine Outpost is honored you’re wearing our pin, i hope you can get more patches & pins from other garrisons & outposts to complete your military look.
Thanks Oneal. Like I said in the post, that pin just helps to complete the look. You guys are awesome!
