501st Member Dean Plantamura has given his helmet to 501st Honorary Member Derek Lyons for buildup. Dean has a ton of projects on his plate and wanted to make sure the project moved forward.
Derek appeared twice in the great final scene of Episode IV. As Rebel Honour Guard he saluted Luke Skywalker and Han Solo as they entered the hall of the Massassi Temple and "swished“ to the other end of the hall in a wink of the eye in order to hand over the medals to Princess Leia for her to present to the approaching pair.
So it is with great pleasure I welcome Derek (even if he was a Rebel) to the TK project.
