Official Site: The Rebel Legion: All Heroes Are Welcome

Donna Keeley takes us inside the Rebel Legion as it hits its 15th year over at StarWars.com and tells us why it’s tough to be a Rebel.

I have to admit, it’s hard to be the Good Guys of the Star Wars galaxy.
People flock to stormtroopers and Darth Vader. Merchandise seems to mostly feature villains. Being stubborn, I always look for items with the Rebel symbol or an X-wing, or anything with a good guy on it. Most of the time I’m disappointed. Yes, I know not ALL the merchandise is dark side centric and there is plenty of Rebel merchandise, but take a walk down the aisles of the local Target, WalMart, or a toy shop, and I bet the “bad guy” merchandise outnumbers the “good guy” merchandise 3 to 1. We can’t even get a good guy on an Easter Basket.
