How can I get in touch with my local garrison

Take a look at the garrison, detachment and outpost listing page to find the unit nearest you.

Can I join if I am under 18?

Unfortunately no. We require that all members be at least 18 years of age.

How do I get a costume?

In general, most members either build the costumes themselves or get their costumes from other members with extra parts / unused costumes.

How to tackle a costume depends on the costume. A tusken raider is very different to build than Darth Vader! Visit the detachments page to find the specialized discussion forum for the costume you are interested in. You can also take a look at our ever growing costume reference library to get some ideas.

Is the Rubies stormtrooper/Vader/Boba Fett acceptable for membership?

Unfortunately no, at least not without a LOT of work. In most cases you will spend more money upgrading the costumes than you would have building your own suit. Definitely check with the relevant detachment before you buy!

The Rubies Darth Vader can be made into a workable ROTS Vader with a lot of work. Visit the Sith Lords Detachment to find out more.

Similarly the Rubies Stormtrooper can be made to work as a Return of the Jedi style stormtrooper. There's a lot to do, but the First Imperial Stormtrooper Detachment can show you how.

To date we have not seen anyone successfully upgrade the Boba Fett costume to Legion standards. The Bounty Hunters Guild would be the place to go to discuss.
