Captain Rex visits London
Clone trooper Captain Rex was Anakin Skywalker's second in command during the Clone Wars and I'm sure I met him Saturday in London. If this really was Captain Rex, popular myth seems to have gotten some things wrong. He wasn't at all the gruff, no-nonsense, tough as nails type. In fact, he wasn't a he, he was a she - a pretty, young, blonde she. Still, I didn't want to mess with someone who commanded the famed 501st Clone Trooper Battalion. If the blaster pistols are not intimidating enough, look in the background - an all terrain scout transport, an AT-ST walker. I took a quick picture and moved on.
