Description: Stormtrooper, A New Hope (Stunt)
Prefix: TK
Detachment: First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment
Context: Episode IV: A New Hope


“This station is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it!” - Admiral Motti (ANH)


Admiral Motti was incorrect in this statement above, about the Death Star. The true ultimate power in the Universe, that the Empire possesses, is the Stormtrooper.


The Stormtroopers (Stunt) were the pre-emptive strike force in the boarding party of the Rebel blockade runner the Tantive IV, and made up the main garrison that could be seen throughout the corridors of The first Death Star.


These highly trained elite soldiers cannot be bribed or swayed from their dedication to the Empire.

The Stormtroopers are not only the first strike team units sent into critical combat situations, but are also assigned to keep a watchful eye over the Imperial officers who might betray the Emperor’s cause.

Garrisons of Stormtroopers are stationed on worlds throughout the Galaxy to keep order, and stop any Rebel uprisings.

Even though the Stormtroopers are an independent unit, having their own command structure, ranking system and support facilities, they still serve on Imperial vessels, and operate along side the Imperial army and navy.

The Stormtroopers are shielded by hardened, plastoid,composite armor, fitted over a black environmental body glove, with a built-in life support system. The imposing white armor not only protects them from harsh environments, but also gives limited protection from blaster fire.

Stormtroopers carry an array of equipment and weapons, wielding blaster rifles and pistols with great skill.

The Stormtroopers, having the combined training and battle tactics of both an Army soldier and a Marine, makes them highly adaptable and a very skilled force.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

FISD Defines two additional, optional levels of costuming excellence. In the page below, requirements for Level 2 "Expert Infantryman" are listed in blue. Requirements for Level 3 "Centurion" are listed in red.

  • Those armor pieces without blue and/ or red text are by default considered the highest level.
  • Please visit the FISD web site for a full description of these standards.

For 501st membership only the requirements in black need to be met.

Special Notes:

  • Visit the Frequently asked questions page for information on the Rubies Supreme Stormtrooper costume.
  • Blasters are not required for legion membership per our weapons policy.
  • The armor parts shall be made from one of these types of materials or like materials: White fiberglass, ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene), or Polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
  • FX armor may not be used for Level 3 approval.

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.
Required Costume Components

The following costume components are present and appear as described below.


TK anh stunt helmet.jpeg Helmet
For 501st approval:
  • Traps (trapezoids on dome of helmet) and tears (area beneath the corners of eye lenses) are gray.
  • Rear traps and tears have vertical black lines.
  • Lenses are flat material, green in color, sufficiently dark enough to obscure the costumer's eyes.
  • The “ear” bars have three or four bumps and should be gray or painted gray, with a black outline. Painting the bumps with rank stripes (highlighted) in black is optional.
  • Frown is painted gray and does not leave the teeth area. Eight total teeth on the frown are cut out.
  • Tube stripes are medium blue, numbering between 9 and 16 per side with the curve bends extending backwards.
