501st Rose Bowl Parade LEGO Diorama Project
You can't spell "Legion" without "LEGO"!
On January 1, 2007 two hundred members of the 501st Legion were invited by George Lucas to march in the Rose Bowl parade. It was an epic moment to show the world that the Legion can represent the world of Star Wars with pride.
On January 1, 2013 we announced the beginning of the Rose Parade LEGO Diorama Project to gather 200+ LEGO Stormtrooper figures and other assorted figures to recreate that epic scene and have it available to show at massive Legion events (shooting for CVII in 2014!).
- collect all the necessary parts using donated figures/pieces or money donations to buy them
- arrange the figures to match the EXACT costumes that marched in the parade
- inscribe the member #'s of each marching member on the back of the figure, so there is a permanent record of what we accomplished and who accomplished it.
- get some LEGO builders with MAD SKILLS to build it all
This will be a visual center piece to recreate that day in 2007 and inspire troopers and future troopers to greater heights. Plus, it will just look plain cool.
How can you help?
