Last week, I attended WonderCon 2014 and wanted to share some (but not all) matters of interest related to Star Wars. First off, there were several clubs represented: 501st Legion, Mandalorian Mercs, R2 Builders, Rebel Legion, and The Twin Suns.

Also getting some attention was the display of Mandalorian Mercs, of which I had never previously heard, nor did I realize there was such a variety of Mandalorian costuming!

I wonder how they were able to transport just the massive gray (Death Star-ish) panels for their backdrop. Additionally, they also had some costumed mannequins as well as other materials around – it was impressive!
