When – Saturday 20th Feb 2021
It was a typical muggy Melbourne day when the imperial forces scouted out the Imax facility in preparation for the weekends trilogy screenings.
An Imperial drop ship was dispatched with pilot and stormtrooper in order to establish contact and suitability for larger imperial forces to arrive.
Mingling with the crowds, they decided the threat level was low enough not to require backup on the day, and so maintained a professional decorum on patrol until the crowds dispersed into their viewing pleasures.
Once a peaceful order was restored, the pilot and stormtrooper decided to try their hands at the local simulators, hoping to fund the new Death Star project.
Troopers on duty:
TI – 12590 – AJ.1990
TK – 10792 – BrenTK
TI – 13114 – Huuahh
Special mentions for Aneesh wrangling his first event, he knew exactly where to put us and help patrons to achieve really good photos with us.

After a rather quiet 2020, Knightfall was keen to get out for their first troop for 2021. Despite being few in number, the troopers were enthusiastic to show their presence at Village Knox. Cinema staff were very accommodating and we soon found ourselves on the mezzanine level ready to take photos with the movie patrons before they took their seats. Lots of smiles on kid’s and adult’s faces alike. A successful troop and a good start to 2021.
Happy patrons: Many
Unhappy patrons: None
Mission Status: Complete

Brief: This was the first tour of duty for 501st KFG troopers since the appearance of a new contagious pathogen identified on this world. New garrison guidelines were being trialled, for the first time, in response to the new conditions and all eyes were on us. Failure in this mission, no matter how minor, would almost certainly reach the ears of Lord Vader. Our mission brief indicated that, in addition to locally-mandated physical-distancing measures, the local inhabitants had taken to wearing individualised fashion accessories over their faces to prevent transmission of the pathogen. Imperial medical knowledge and resources far exceed those of the local authorities, however troopers and unhelmeted support personnel wore similar primitive face coverings in order to keep the locals at ease.
Troopers arrived approximately 45 minutes prior to their respective rostered watch/duty shift. Kitting up was performed efficiently and proficiently, given the limited space and resources available.
Locals had to be reminded on occasion that physical contact between troopers and civilians was prohibited. A minimum distance of 1.5m apart was often difficult to maintain, however many satisfactory selfies were taken with creative camera angling and strategic positioning of our best and brightest troopers
Upon conclusion of their respective shift, the troopers quickly de-kitted and blended in with the local populace before shuttling out to their various next assignments.
Happy People: many
Unhappy People: None
Mission Status: Complete.

Our yearly event to the Special Children’s Christmas Party, came through as a request for video’s, I was representing Knightfall and took the challenge, it did take a moment to remember the correct procedure on placing on the armor again it had been a little while, so once kitted up I proceed outside it was a short walk and had my trusty handler with me taking the video.
A number of the videos are placed up on Special Children’s face book page, others (including Knightfalls) were sent personally to the kids.
