The Galactic Academy website is back up after a lull in functionality.

Catering for younger Star Wars costumers aged 0-17, the Galactic Academy is a complimentary costuming organisation that gives our younger family members an opportunity to join us on troops. Tython base fully supports Galactic Academy members joining parents or guardians on most troops we attend.

See the FAQ section for information on how your young cadets and padawans can join. If anyone has family members who have already joined the GA, here would be a good place to let me know who they are, or post membership pics, perhaps!

Ok guys, I'll start this thread off with the story of Anakin...

Started life on our home planet of Tatooine, seemed like a normal boy, though did show a particular talent for fixing things..



Mum and Dad were proud of their son and everyone was happy..though Anakin's thoughts always seemed elsewhere....





He began racing pods (which scared his mother), but everything still seemed normal..




UNTIL.. he started hanging out with the wrong crowd.........





















Flying all over the place in strange vehicles...





Going to bars....






And staying out late dancing....





He had some very "different" friends that we really didnt warm to...



Until one day... he turns up like this....!












There were more of them! And they had meetings....











HOW COULD WE NOT HAVE SEEN OUR SON'S DESCENT TO THE DARK SIDE????? THE WRITING WAS ON THE WALL...RIGHT IN FRONT OF US!!!! HELL EVEN MR. KENNER COULD FORSEE THE FUTURE...... Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad










Next time we are hoping for a girl.... We think "Zam" is a nice name... Wink

Wow Shay, talk about a hard act to follow! That is a great story and presentation, thank you so much.

I'm going to keep mine simple, then.

Hi Guys,

Just to update this thread and Jesse's progress with joining the Galactic Academy - He was recently approved for both Imperial and Republic corps. His Stormtrooper for the Imperials and his Anakin for the Republic.

Very Happy Very Happy

Thanks Mark, we are glad you stopped by and thanks for the link.

I thought it would be fun to do another little update for the Academy followers.

Well, we did a complete upgrade last year of Anakin's outfit. ( little boys grow so fast Very Happy ) Most of you who troop with us will have seen Anakin at various events but in case you haven't, here are some pics.

The fabric took a lot of preparation but it is very near to that used in Episode 1 The Phantom Menace. We included Anakins iconic back pack and Italian Army WW11 pouches. The Third pouch ( which very little is known about ) was made by me from leather. the belt buckle is an American military brass buckle. If you watch the movie closely, you will notice that it is covered with the same material as the belt itself. I cut a super thin slice of the leather and then sanded it down paper thin before glueing it to the brass buckle front.










I told Jesse on this last shot, that he could strike an iconic pose - young Anakin channeling the force, final wave to Shmee , that type of thing - Jesse chose Usain Bolt Laughing




Ok so all ready to begin your training.

Obi Wan : " I sense danger Anakin"

Anakin : ( little voice ) I feel it too...







Obi Wan : ".... Anakin... DROP! "







Obi Wan : " Ok Anakin maybe you should just take it from here and introduce me to this Pod racing you keep talking about " .....



Anakin : " Well before I can do that I have to make some adjustments back here. N3 ratios are off "







Now just have to check those tweaks with a static run of the engines. Arggg ... so windy. Wish I had wore my googles...





Ok, lets cut to the chase - literally. M u s t .... F o c u s .... sides of this canyon are CLOSE.







It's final straight..... If I can just nudge past Sebulba.... I'll have it..... He know's it too









HA HA YEESSSSS !!!!!!!! Got him on the line ! WOO HOO, now THAT'S Pod Racing Very Happy













Huge Thanks to Chewie for the great shots and awesome editing !

Just for fun Very Happy
