About Outpost 42
Outpost 42 is the New Zealand Garrison of the worldwide Star Wars costuming group, the 501st Legion.
While we wear the costumes of Stormtroopers, Sith Lords, Bounty Hunters and other villains of the Star wars films, we dedicate much of our our time towards assisting charities and community groups earning us the tagline ‘Bad Guys doing good in New Zealand’
What is the 501st Legion?
While the 501st was initially founded to unite costumers with a penchant for Star Wars villainy, one of our real-world missions is to bring good to our communities through volunteer charity work. The 501st is always looking for opportunities to brighten the lives of the less fortunate and to bring awareness to positive causes on both a local and global scale.
