No Luke-warm cosplay at Oz Comic-Con, the Star Wars line-up is impressive. First I found the Mandalorian Mercs, ruthless bounty hunters posing for the camera while Fett yells “Get your Hans off my carbonite!”

"Hans off my carbonite!"

“Hans off my carbonite!”

Next in line were the 501st Legion, with a gorgeous Sith warrior taking down a Jedi in a battlestar corridor. (“That’s no moon.”)

The Wookie Wins!

The Hoth-est ticket item is a photo with our favorite Wookie, Chewbacca, flanked by an Ewok, R2 unit and Hoth Rebel.

Three years ago I interviewed Bradley Bristow-Stagg on building a Chewbacca costume. It’s finally finished and well worth the wait.

The Rebel Legion regularly rattles tins in aid of charities supporting sick children but never before in the course of human history have I seen such a large crowd pressing close, clamoring for photos with our favorite Rebels.
