ChiTAG 2010

Postby TB 0101 » Sun Nov 21, 2010 8:58 pm

The 501st Legion was once again a huge hit at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair this year at Navy Pier. From an early start for our membership Saturday morning at the Star Wars breakfast all the way through Darth Maul taking his final bow as the show was getting ready to shut down, we were in high demand and did our utmost to humor and awe patrons of all ages. The Droid Hunt, with prize light sabers donated by Hasbro, was also a huge hit and I'm happy to report: mission successful!

Special thanks to 501st and RL members from near and far for coming out to play. It's because of all of you that we were complimented by the show's promoters and we've been asked to participate again next year. Your participation is greatly appreciated!

Official event photos were taken Saturday, the show's busiest day, by Joe Rivera:
