I Am Cooper Trooper
Let me introduce myself. My name is Cooper Trooper. My assigned number is TK-8629. I served as a senior trooper in the battles on Hoth. I spent the majority of my time stationed at the Echo base. Before that, I spent a brief time of my service on the first Death Star. Just days before it’s destruction, I was transferred to the Echo base on Hoth. I consider myself one of the lucky ones.
After my service, I went into the reserves. For now, my assigned duties are simply to keep order and to monitor suspicious activities in my travels. It’s a very free life, which gives me time to see various parts of the galaxy. For the last year, I have been on Earth and have tried to integrate myself into the population, as evidenced by the photos I’ve posted here. I will also be posting other photos and video logs showing my experiences living amongst the people of Earth.
“Learning to drive was a challenge, but I eventually got the hang of it“
“The people I am staying with own a scooter. Much slower than a speeder bike“
“It’s not easy to ride, but as with the car, I will eventually learn how“
I was contacted by Norman and asked if I wanted to participate in his project of showing our integration in society. You can read his request here.
I will be moving my logs to a new location in the coming weeks, with an announcement of each new entry located here on this weblog, complete with a link to each entry.
I hope you enjoy them. I look forward to sharing them with the collective public.
you and cooper.
However, I really think I am going to fail on the technical nerd jargon when I finally get mine.
“Cooper Trooper” is awesome! Any significance to the TK enumeration? His name reminds me of Super Mario Bros. 😉
Welcome aboard, Cooper. Your mobility will be an asset to the cause.
Waiting on my own clone to arrive. Nice to meet you, Cooper.
Love it! Can’t wait to see what’s next! 🙂
Ha, I love it. You better be careful, he looks awfully comfy on that Scooter, I think he’ll be fighting you for the Scooter Sunday posts.
hello ha ha narf – Thank you.
sybil law – No worries. We’ll help educate you in the way of LEGO nerdiness.
kapgar – The TK number does have some significance. the 2 in the 29 means he was a senior trooper. The 86 is my birthday (Aug 6th). And you are the first to catch the homage to the Koopa Troopa in Super Mario Bros. You sir, are a true geek.
karl – Can’t wait to see your trooper.
TSM Oregon – Thank you. I have big plans for this little guy.
kevin – Thanks, sir. And I’m sure he’s going to get good at riding the scooter. It will all be captured on video for Scooter Sunday episodes.
LOL! I am surprised Cooper feels that he lives such a free life! He is one lucky trooper!
*HE’S* the reason TK-421 wasn’t at his post. Think – Brokeback Death Star.
kilax – Luck has been with him for many years.
whall – LOL.. That means he can’t quit Death Star.
