501st Legion: Vader’s Fist

„The 501st Legion is an international STAR WARS™ costuming organization dedicated to celebrating the STAR WARS universe through the creation, display, and wearing of quality character costumes that represent the villainous characters from the STAR WARS sagas. The Legion promotes interest in STAR WARS and facilitates the use of these costumes for STAR WARS-related events as well as contributes to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.“

(Legion Charter, Article II)

Spreading interest in Star Wars

While many people experiencing a revival of interest in Star Wars (the first wave was in the late 70s and 80s), a new generation of fans, who are looking for a way to celebrate the modern mythology by George Lucas, comes to the scene. The 501st Legion is gathering these fans together and strengthens the life of the Star Wars saga.

Wearing costumes

Some fans collect action figures of their heroes ... others want to become them! Nothing expresses the enthusiasm for Star Wars more clearly as to build your own replica costume of one of the world-famous movie bad guys. There is nothing to match the feeling when the characters from the Star Wars move into the real world. Share the magic with others!

We contribute

Although our organization was founded for the purpose of simply associate fans, who own costumes and have similar interests, the Legion is proud of the fact that the funds it obtains due to charitable and philanthropic activities can be devoted to a good cause.
