Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: Star Wars: "Dark Times" Graphic Novels.

He lets neither morality or ethical conflicts hinder his determination to execute orders without question.


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.

  • As such, this costume must be approved by the Legion Membership Officer, via the appropriate section of the Legion forum.
