Jay Laga'aia Now Officially In The 501st!

Posted By Mike on May 18, 2009



From the official webiste of the 501st Legion:


"Although he's been a Honorary Member of the 501st since October 2005, Star Wars actor Jay Laga'aia (Captain Typho) always had full intentions of becoming an armor-wearing member of the 501st. On May14th, Jay realized his dream and was approved as TK-6352 of the Terror Australis Garrison. To preserve the surprise, local members were bound to secrecy even as they helped Jay acquire and assemble his Stormtrooper armor, and the tongue-in-cheek alias of "Jasson Lagguinski" was used throughout the member application process. Jay is the 2009 Star Wars Weekends celebrity host from May 22 to June 14 at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, and hopes to don the armor for his first official troop sometime during his visit. Jay will be joined each weekend by other Star Wars Weekends mainstays such as Jeremy Bulloch, Warwick Davis, Dave Filoni, Peter Mayhew, Temuera Morrison, Ray Park, David Prowse and Matthew Wood and--of course--the 501st Legion."



Congrats to Jay! For more info on the 501st, their members, upcoming events, and more, visit their website right here.


Thanks Dean!
