Description: Stormtrooper, Return of the Jedi
Prefix: TK
Detachment: First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment
Context: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

"An entire legion of my best troops awaits them". - Emperor Palpatine (ROTJ)


Outfitted with newly designed armor and the new series of BlasTech E11's, the Stormtroopers were the main garrison for the newly constructed, second Death Star. The Emperor stationed the Empires’ finest Legion of Stormtroopers to defend the defense shield for the Death Star. They were the main strike unit during the battle on the Forest Moon of Endor.


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.


Rebellion slang terms and nicknames for Stormtroopers:

Whitehats

Plastic Soldiers

Boys in White

Plastic Boys

Stormies



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.
