Description: Hardcase (Phase 2)
Prefix: CT
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Season 4

Hardcase serves in the Grand Army of the Republic. He is renowned for having an aggressive, enthusiastic personality. Slightly trigger-happy, he carries the urge to seek action on the battlefield and is easily drawn to a firefight.


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.

  • 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.
