Trooper Attendance:
RBG: TK:33827 Bolt, TK:90579 Scotty33 and DZ:10383 Beccyd

Support Crew / Guest Trooper Attendance: Cadet Snips wrangled for us

Scotty, Bolt and Snips arrived early and organised a changing room. Originally we were going to have to be in a room which was up 20 stairs, in a crampt store room and a bit of a walk away from the main area.. no thanks! So we moved to the conference room which was right next to where we needed to troop and had tables! Niiiice!

Scotty and Bolt suited up and began checking out the area. We tested the claw machines and tried to order tickets (just for a photo but the lady behind the counter almost really did print out tickets for us!). The crowds were pretty small to begin with and it was a hard gig trying to get photos as a lot of the people there thought we were just dudes who hired costumes. But slowly the crowds got bigger and in time people realised we were more than the usual cosplayer. 

After checking out a suspicious container and taking a few more photos Beccyd arrived and jawa'ed up. A few "fans" thought she was a tusken raider.. hmm not sure if they knew what Star Wars was.. haha!

We got the chance to sneak into one of the cinemas for a photo op and for some reason Scotty sat down in a seat.. so I did the same. TK's have a hard time sitting down! After borrowing some duct tape from Kylo Wren Scotty was back in action! 

Eventually the cinema filled with hundreds of people as they lined up to get their tickets. We patrolled the lines and Snips did an excellent job wrangling for us, taking pics and making sure we didn't miss anyone. I even helped a lady find her missing kid in the crowd! 

Plenty of funny moments happend as we walked around the lines of people and made their wait a little less boring. 

Eventually everyone started filling the cinema seats and Beccyd went to join the line. Scotty, Snips and I trooped for a little longer then de-kitted. 

As we finished packing our armour one of the cinema employees came to tell us that they had some seats if we wanted them, of course!! So the three of us got to watch the movie for free, which was completely unexpected and awesome. It was a late night but a good troop.

Charity Funds Raised: Nil

Injuries / Malfunctions: Just scotty's belt and hand plate falling off when he sat down haha!

Public Incidents: None, other than a very creepy emperor following us around... 

Mission Status: Complete success!
