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: There are 3 distinct variations on clonetrooper armor: Movie Style, Clone Wars seasons 1-3, Clone Wars season 4. The correct style of armor must be used for the costume being recreated. Of particular note, the Season 4 Clone Wars characters MUST use S04 animated armor. Realistic interpretations will not be approved!
