I have never seen stormtroopers around besides the Geeky Star Wars weekends either. Maybe it's a new gimmick thing to get more people to ride this old albatross of a simulator. The only Star Wars characters you see on normal basis at MGM are the ones that parade in the cheap Motorcade Procession daily.
I just find it funny that despite numerous signs AND the preshow video that people still think that ride is children-friendly. Heck, it doesn't have to be children, either. I find frigtened adults equally amusing because it all reminds me of MY first time on that ride. I've been there before and it's amusing to see how others have reacted.
I was at MGM last weekend, and saw a few Stormtroopers around Star Tours. Is this normal? Are there any other characters that show up outside of Star Wars Weekends?
It been about 3 years now since I went to MGM but last time I went there was a Chewboca & R2 D2 when we where there. It was not a week end or Star wars Week when we where there either just a weak day in March. As to what the do now I can not say for sure but they have had other there.
I will never grow up if it means looking like I've sucked on Persimmons all my life!!!!
