The 501st Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.

With over 10,000 members worldwide, they are the world's largest costuming club. The Redback Garrison is comprised of over 160 501st Legion members based in Queensland. As well as creating some of the highest quality Star Wars costumes in the world, the Redbacks also attend many events and devote themselves to supporting a number of charities throughout the state. Most importantly, they enjoy bringing smiles to those who most need it – they are the Bad Guys doing good!
