(Legion Charter, Article II)
While many people experiencing a revival of interest in Star Wars (the first wave was in the late 70s and 80s), a new generation of fans, who are looking for a way to celebrate the modern mythology by George Lucas, comes to the scene. The 501st Legion is gathering these fans together and strengthens the life of the Star Wars saga.
Some fans collect action figures of their heroes ... others want to become them! Nothing expresses the enthusiasm for Star Wars more clearly as to build your own replica costume of one of the world-famous movie bad guys. There is nothing to match the feeling when the characters from the Star Wars move into the real world. Share the magic with others!
Although our organization was founded for the purpose of simply associate fans, who own costumes and have similar interests, the Legion is proud of the fact that the funds it obtains due to charitable and philanthropic activities can be devoted to a good cause.
