Description: Clone Trooper
Prefix: TC
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Clone troopers were an army of identical, genetically-modified clones of Jango Fett, created to serve in the Grand Army of the Republic during the conflict that came to be known as the Clone Wars. Cloned and raised in the cities of Kamino, the clone troopers trained and drilled since birth, and came to be regarded as one of the most efficient military forces ever to have existed in galactic history. This was not only due to their training, but also to their unwavering loyalty to the Galactic Republic and its leader, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.

Please note that this costume is also eligible for membership in The Rebel Legion.


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.

See this thread at clonetroopers.net for the differences between the sculpts.
