Mission Report:
All of the trooper arrived bright and early (around 8:30am) for a full day of trooping. The staff at Kinokuniya we're helpful and hospitable, as was Jessica the Disney PR Representative on the day. Each trooper was kitted up and ready to go by 10:00am for the opening, as well as an outstanding R2D2 and his operator there - there were not too many problems with costumes, only a missing pair of pants and socks that was quickly resolved!

At around 10AM the troopers were escorted by Jessica to the front entrance where we stood guard for photos and high fives. Around 30 minutes later we stood guard for a book reading. After the reading the troopers roamed around the store, posing for pictures and putting smiles on faces.

At around 12:00, a majority of the troopers took a quick break with snacks and drinks provided by Disney and went back out to troop. The face characters we're wrangled over to the competition area while the rest stood outside the store to lead people in and pose for photos. There we're plenty of photo bombs, selfies and other great pictures taken.

Jessica from Disney took myself, Luciferian and Peculiar Goiter down stairs to the mall to wrangle up some business at around 1:45pm, and I can tell you now it was a blast - waving the buses and cars passing by as well as a few motorbike police who loved our costumes.

Around 2:15pm, we posed for group photos outside the store with R2D2!
Oh, did I mention Peculiar Goiter spent around 40 minutes building LEGO with the kids in his Mandalorian? Needless to say, they loved it!

Around 3:00PM the day was quieting down and coming to an end, the competitions were over, the Jedi had their duel and plenty of the kids were leaving with big smiles on the faces.

I would like to thank Sarah Hillier on behalf of the base for coming along to take photos of us throughout the day. On a finishing note, everybody looked fantastic in costume and lets hope every Disney troop in the future will be as good as this ones!

If there is anything I missed please feel free to add onto the report.

Mission Successful!
