The Stormtrooper has always been symbolic of everything that’s awesome about Comic-Con, but that doesn’t mean they’ve got it easy. Everybody wants a picture, you’ve got no pockets, and everybody still blames you for what happened on Alderan. We felt it important to emphasize that beneath the iconic exterior of white battle armor beats the heart of a vulnerable human being, one who’s susceptible to the same long lines, overpriced food, letdowns, and general exhaustion that any of us are.
Clones are people too, so what sucks for us can be even more hellish on them when not operating under the authority of the Galactic Empire. In order to humanize our friend the Stormtrooper, we’re counting down the difficulties we all face at San Diego’s annual pop culture throwdown. Because just like life and droids, some SDCC experiences just aren’t the ones you’re looking for.
“Seriously?! Most of these people don’t even have to deal with a cod piece – Move your Bladders!”
“Is she a size 2 or 3? Crap, I can never remember…”
“I swear I was just in there! Can I please just grab my laptop bag?”
“It’s nice, but if my boss sees me in it I could get fired.”
“PLEASE?! I’m in this issue and I just want to show my mom.”
“C’mon, man… I promised it to my nephew and you’re just going to put it on eBay.”
“I swear I’ve never even served on Asgard!”
“Bro, it’s all fantasy! Why ya gotta hate?”
“For chrissake, I could’ve picked the beans myself by now…”
“Okay, one picture, DM. What… no I don’t have any money you can borrow.”
Big thanks to Garet Jones for helping us out and contributing to the silliness. We’ll miss ya Comic-Con
