Description: 501st Clone Trooper
Prefix: CT
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

The 501st Legion, later known as "Vader's Fist," is an elite unit of troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a Stormtrooper unit. The 501st have fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. It was the 501st that was led into the Jedi temple by Darth Vader to helped destroy the Jedi. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the troopers helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.


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.
