Re: Newly Approved Scout Trooper in IL

Welcome to the Garrison :thumbs: Where at western burbs? I live in Montgomery/Oswego, and there's a good number of us around here now. There is a few close troops coming up where you could get to meet a fair number of us in a more relaxed environment. http://www.midwestgarrison.com/forum/viewtopic.p...

This year we did not have a fund raiser/book drive, but none the less our members contributed enough books on our own to mak...

Re: The real adventure starts

Okay, something to past my time are just a few questions I can ask. For the E-11 blaster, is it the Kenner power of the force E-11 the one people use? If so, what would be the running price?
