To say it’s been a busy time in the galaxy is quite the understatement. Empire Saber Guild was proud to be part of two major events the weekend of February 13th-14th, 2016, despite the Hoth-like record breaking cold conditions outside:

  • Science, Sabers, Star Wars Weekend at the Liberty Science Center
  • The Liberty Science Center celebrated the Star Wars universe with their science filled tribute February 12th – 15th. Despite the snow and record breaking cold, Darth Vaders, Kylo Rens, Luke Skywalkers, Princess Leias, Han Solos, Reys, Jedi, Sith and droids alike made their way to the museum to learn how to be a Jedi, design a droid, blast rockets at the Death Star, roar like a Wookie – and welcome R2-D2 to his new home.
  • Our members: Markov Stormwind, Bran Dellock, Kamyos Rehnard, and Kandar Goodwén, along with members of the 501st NorthEast Remnant and Madalorian Mercs Raquor-daan Clan were there to greet the 10,000 people who gathered in NJ for the event.
  • Thank you to all who said hi and were there to welcome our friend, R2. It was a fitting celebration for a beloved droid.

  • Play Fair
    • For the first time, the Javits Center opened its doors to families during the weekend of Toy Fair for the inaugural Play Fair. Sensing a strong presence in the Force, Kamyos Rehnard, Kandar Goodwén, Kobault Stillwater, Orin Kel, Reos Tokani, Zephisto, and Bran Dellock were proud to train 48 Padawans throughout the course of both days on the mainstage. The younglings proved themselves strong in the Force, quickly picking up Shii-Cho, the art of the action pose, and learning a defense combination which they confidently tested against our Masters Kandar Goodwén and Kobault Stillwater.
    • For the Padawans who weren’t able to join us for training, they were invited to our booth where they could engage in the final trial every Jedi Padawan will face: constructing your lightsaber utilizing Star Wars BladeBuilders product generously donated to us from Hasbro. Our members assisted as younglings of all ages used their imagination and ingenuity to construct unique lightsabers and then pose with some of our Jedi and Sith Masters.
