JOPLIN, MO.--- James Kave is a Joplin Storm Trooper member of the 501st Legion. There are more than 6,000 members of the 501st group across the globe. Dave Smith is applying for membership as Darth Vader.

The group goes to conventions and special events along with charity work for less fortunate children, all while dressed up. They say one of the best parts of the group is the reactions from people.

"They all run up, they want to get their picture taken with us. Lot of the kids want to lightsaber fight with Lord Vader," says 501st Legion member, James Kaye.

If you would like to learn more about joining the local 501st Legion you can call 417-529-0343. You'll need to have a costume.
