About

Greetings, Imperial Citizen! Thank you for stopping by.

My name is Simon Hansen, and my trooper ID is TK-32700. I am a member of 501st Legion, and I’m stationed in Mo i Rana, Norway. I’ve been a member since December 7, 2015. My costume is a Stormtrooper, A New Hope (Stunt).

501st Legion is a worldwide costuming organization, founded in 1997. We build authentic-looking Star Wars costumes and do charity work.

We have local branches all over the world. These branches are called garrisons, squads or outposts, depending on the size of the territory and number of troopers living there. I’m part of Nordic Garrison, which covers Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Every costume category has its own detachment. My costume category is a Stormtrooper, part of the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment.

Want an appearance?

Request an appearance in Norway, Sweden or Finland via Nordic Garrison. Other territories? See 501st.com
