Mercs 'Talon Clan - Captain's Comics Expo at Patriot's Point' Invasion Debriefin

Invasion location: Mt Pleasant, SC
Date: Feb 24-25, 2017
Clan(s) Involved: Talon
Mission Objective: Share all things SciFi and Comic books to the low country of SC and promote MMCC.  Also to raise funds for the Lowcountry Orphan Relief

Invasion Report:
The Captain's Comics Expo, put on by Captain's Comics and Toys in Charleston, SC, is now in it's 9th year. Typically they dedicate half of the large stage in the center of the Shrine Temple at Patriot's Point to Star Wars with the 501st Legion. This year, the entire stage was for Star Wars with the Droid Builders Club, Rebel Legion and Mandalorian Mercs setting up displays. On the Mercs table were a helmet built by El Evan (part of armor awaiting approval), Ee-3 blaster, Power 5 blaster, trading cards of Mercs and the official Mercs business cards (which went fast).

There were 5 areas for people to take photos with the characters on stage: Tattooine (with R2-D2), Millenium Falcon (with BB8), Death Star (with a dianoga), and Endor (big trees and a 1/4 scale AT-ST). El Evan was in armor for much of Saturday talking up the club next to his display Boba Fett mannequin. On Sunday, half the stage was needed for another display, so the Star Wars set pieces were condensed to just the Endor props. El Evan's armor was moved to a mannequin next to Boba Fett with the Mercs signage. Still being there, El Evan gave out trading cards and talked up the club, especially to the kid who showed up in Deathwatch armor!
