Bred  on Kamino, CC-5052 was among the first generation of clone marshal commanders to be trained by the Advanced Recon Commando Alpha-17, who gave him the designation "Bly."  A clone of Jango Fett, Bly was trained as an Advanced Recon Commando himself, giving him a more independent mindset and allowing him to think "outside the manual" when it came to the shifting of tactical situations. As a clone commander, it was Bly's job to act as an intermediary between the Jedi Generals and the regular clone troopers, although he was bred to be loyal to the Republic above all others. Bly was assigned to the 327th Star Corps, which fell under the command of Aylaa Secura. }}

Description: Commander Bly
Prefix: CC
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Commander Bly is among the first generation of clone marshal commanders to be trained by the Advanced Recon Commando "Alpha-17". Bly, having also been trained as an Advanced Recon Commando, has a more independent mindset, allowing the commander to think "outside the manual" when it comes to the shifting of tactical situations. As a commander, it is Bly's job to act as an intermediary between the Jedi Generals and the regular clone troopers. Bly is assigned to the 327th Star Corps, under the command of Aylaa Secura.


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 Visual Guide has been reviewed by the detachment staff and the LMO team and is certified for use as a minimum approval guideline for GMLs. GMLs are free to approve this costume type.
