The 501st Legion, also called “Vader’s fist”, is a group of dressed up fans who have been active worldwide since 1997. With impressively faithful costumes, the 501st and its Stormtroopers or Darth Vador himself allow you to experience Star Wars at Japan Expo Sud in a way you would never have imagined!
Attracting a crowd of attendees with the characters they embody, beware they don't convince you to join the dark side of the Force. But maybe was it your plan since the very beginning, who knows... Facing the Rebel Alliance resistance, these fans of Star Wars are working to recreate an atmosphere faithful to the cult movies of Georges LUCAS!
Beyond taking part in conventions and other events, the 501st Legion is a club of volunteers who aim at helping others through charity, as well as keeping the magic of Star Wars alive for the widest audience.
