Flagship Eclipse is a detachment of the 501st Legion. The primary goal of the detachment is to promote and support costuming for characters found in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. This includes characters from the Star Wars comics, books, cartoons and games. The Flagship Eclipse Detachment focuses on Sith, Darkside Adept, and Denizen characters which are not covered by any other detachments within the 501st. Expanded Universe officers, royal guards, troopers and bounty hunters are represented by their respective detachments.

Our forum has been designed to provide information and assistance to costumers who are working on Expanded Universe costumes. The forums are open to the general public, although there are also private areas designated for members of the Detachment and the 501st Legion.


The 501st Legion is a Star Wars fan club dedicated to celebrating the Star Wars universe through costuming; specifically the costumes and characters of the stormtrooper and other Imperial forces, as well as non-affiliated villains and denizens. The Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.

The Legion recognizes it holds no claim over the costumes and characters it portrays, and that their use is a privilege extended by Lucasfilm Ltd. (LFL). The members of the Legion acknowledge and accept that while in costume, we represent the Star Wars brand and will do so professionally and responsibly at all times. The text shown above is an excerpt from Article 1 of the 501st Legion Charter.
