Description: Captain Rex (Phase 2)
Prefix: CC
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: The Clone Wars: Season 4

Season 4 introduced new helmets and armor for the clones. This time Rex has a unique helmet sculpt, worn only by him.

Note: Since the armor has been updated significantly, a Clone Wars phase 2 Armor sculpt is required for approval. Phase 1 animated and/or movie style armor are not accurate.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

In the page below, items listed in blue are recommended features that will improve the quality of the costume. Items listed in red are intended to further enhance the finished costume.

For 501st membership only the requirements in black need to be met.

IMPORTANT: The "Animated" armor design, seen in The Clone Wars CG Series, differs from the "Realistic" armor design used to create characters from the theatrical films and graphic novels.
See this thread at clonetroopers.net for the differences between the sculpts.

  • This CRL is a work in progress.
  • This costume may be approved by GMLs, but until the library entry is complete, it is suggested that this character first be submitted to the appropriate DL/GML peer review section of the legion forum.
  • If you have this costume and would like to assist with the completion of this library entry, please contact your detachment leader.
  • Please note that the use of the word "should" below does not indicate that the armor piece is considered open to interpretation. All instances of "should be" and "should have" will be replaced with "is" and "has", as this guide is completed.
