James Norman, aka TK-8114 from the Midwest Garrison of the 501st Legion, sends us the following update to let fans know that Jeremy Bulloch has officially joined the ranks of the 501st:
"30 years after his portrayal of the classic Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back, accomplished English actor Jeremy Bulloch has decided to take his on-screen persona to the ultimate level with official membership in the 501st Legion using his highly-accurate ESB Fett costume gifted to him by the online costuming experts at The Dented Helmet. While an Honorary Member since 2002, Bulloch's actual membership as a Boba Fett in the 501st UK Garrison makes him only the second on-screen Star Wars actor turned 501st member (the first being actor Jay "Captain Typho" Laga'aia).

Welcome aboard, BH-5211!"
Thanks to James for the news, and congratulations to Mr. Bulloch!
