They call themselves "Vader's Fist: The 501st Legion-The World's Definitive Imperial Costuming Organization". It's a group dedicated to doing events and charitable works while dressed in high-quality Star Wars-themed costumes, particularly stormtroopers and other members of Darth Vader's imperial army. Brian Troyan, aka TK-8968 is the 501st’s Public Relations Officer-Midwest Garrison Commanding Officer, and he shares the group’s-and his own-excitement about the news that the George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art will be built here in Chicago.
