The magazine is out!

I posted back in January about the photo shoot the stormtroopers did for Wired magazine. I'm pleased to report that the issue (April 2008) is out! We picked up a copy tonight at Barnes & Noble.

That middle picture, the one with a stormtrooper on the left and a guy without a helmet on the right... well, the stormtrooper is my hubby! He was the only one they took head shots of. He wasn't sure that was really him at first, but then he recognized the aerators on his helmet. He says his helmet is now famous. The picture of the guy without a helmet is Ernie Cline, the writer of the upcoming movie Fanboys.

It was a bit disappointing to the 501st as a whole that so few pictures of them made it in. The photographer took a ton, and only Steven, a guy dressed as Boba Fett, and the ordinary TK troopers made it in. C'est la vie, I guess.

Cool! I will have to check that out when I make my weekly pilgrimage to Borders this Saturday!
