Description: Republic Commando: Scorch
Prefix: RC
Detachment: Clone Trooper Detachment
Context: Star Wars: Republic Commando Game and Novels

Republic Commandos were uniquely trained to work in groups as one. A habitual joker, Scorch the demolition man within Delta Squad, is never short of a clever wisecrack, even in the midst of battle.


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.
  • Any uncertainties or questionable aspects of the submitted costume should be brought to the appropriate DL/GML peer review section of the legion forum.
