The 501st was dispatched to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta on a supply mission, hoping to armor ourselves with whatever those indestructible little bricks are made of.

But nothing’s ever quite that easy.

Attempts at civility were met with a distinct lack of appreciation.

The trash compactor gave us a slimy, constricting welcome.

And ever the pest, the Rebels showed up to further complicate matters.

Even our notoriously-reliable associate Boba Fett failed to be of much help, preferring to instead shop for himself.

Fortunately our stay was not entire unproductive, as we picked up a cold trail of a certain pair of droids we’ve been looking for.

I’m Dreaming of a White-Armored Christmas

Keeping with tradition, the 501st sent a substantial force to Atlanta for the annual Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas parade.

 As a precaution, blasters were set to ‘merry’.

 Initial attempts to infiltrate Santa’s workshop undercover failed.  Our forces underestimated Mr. Claus’s counter-espionage tactics.

“Hah, look at Vader’s scarf.  You’d think he would be warm enough after Mustafar, am I right?  Am I r- [strangling noises]”

Sadly the afternoon did not go perfectly, as one of our own was discovered to be a rebel spy.  He is scheduled to be shot, put in a bacta tank, then shot again.

 The Athens, GA Sound of Christmas parade was an evening of fun and merriment, with one highlight in particular:

 Our ground troops cornered and apprehended Princess Leia, the rebel spy wanted for treason, espionage, crimes against hair, and brother-kissing.

 The Princess cooperated with forces after only four hours of standard interrogation(‘Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer’ played on repeat).
