  1. That's really awesome that someone is finally doing this! Best of luck!
  2. Color me shocked by the LMO's decision on this build. Goes to show that if you never ask the answer is always "no".
  3. The last run was very recently finished and shipped out, so it's going to be a long time before there's another run (there's no way we can put any kind of specific date on "when")
  4. Correct, RL is more lenient on generic things, over there I have my X-Wing pilot and I have my Bith musician, for fun I combined the two and have a Bith pilot, all RL approved. That's how they do things over there, but that's not how 501st does things. Honestly there's a better chance of getting generic Nightsisters to be a thing (I personally would love to see that be a thing). Over on the IOC a group of us tried to make the case that there should be a CRL for Thrawn's other ranks (Lieutenant, Captain) since they appeared in the comic adaptation of the Thrawn novel. After some back and forth, it never happened. Oh well, collectively we all moved on. These things happen. You are correct that there is uniformity to the elements that make up the various Inquisitors uniforms. If this is really something people want to do, do it, make the costume and submit it to try and get a CRL made. Best case scenario it's accepted and made an official CRL. Worst case they say "sorry no", it doesn't become a CRL here but you could probably get it approved for The Dark Empire costuming group or just have a really cool costume for cons. I'm not writing all this to discourage anyone from trying something, I'm just sharing my experiences with making CRLs happen (501st Bith musician was because of me) getting some shut down (see previous IOC story) and working on various detachment staffs (current XO for Gunners). Every LMO team is different, what one staff allows/doesn't allow will differ greatly from what the previous and next team will decided. Nothing ventured nothing gained, if you don't ask the answer will always be no, etc
  5. 501st doesn't do generics (the argument could be made that costumes like the Imperial Officers/Crewman are "generic" since you don't have to be specifically General Veers, just someone who wears the exact same suit and accessories). There's always people that want to join with generic Sith Lords, Bounty Hunters, Dark Jedi, Smugglers, Cantina/Jabba's thugs, etc. and a lot of times those costumes look great, but that's not what the 501st does. If you want to do a generic Inquisitor I'm sure The Dark Empire group would happily approve that.
  6. This isn't 100% a final answer - just my opinion - but I don't think Korr would qualify for the 501st. In the game the player can choose to do things to go to the dark side, but everything with the story of the character both in the game and in novels has Jaden being on the light side. The argument could be made that player choices effect Revan too, but the difference here is that the firm story of the character is that he was a sith lord before getting his mind wiped, so the sith lord look of Revan is 501st eligible. But if the player chooses to make their playable character a black woman with a huge blaster rifle, that's the player's choice. It's much like why Darth Malgus from The Old Republic, who has a canon look, is a 501st costume, but the player's custom sith isn't. I know that's not the answer you'd want to hear, but I hope it makes some sort of sense.
  7. No, the 501st doesn't do "generic Sith/dark Jedi". However, there is another group that does, The Dark Empire.
  8. Dark Rey is being heavily debated if it qualifies or not. The argument being that Rey (and in this case Kal) never goes dark, just sees a version of themselves if they gave into the darkness, much like Luke in the tree on Dagobah. The counter argument being that we allow Dark Ahsoka to be an approved costume, but that's something that actually happened to her, it wasn't a vision, or a slight moment of touching the dark side (which we've seen Ezra do, and Luke sort of when he's chocking guards and viciously attacking his father), she was fully possessed by the dark side in that episode. So back to this version of Kal, I didn't say it can't be or shouldn't be an official thing, just that it's going to be debated (very few costumes aren't in some way or another lately). Or maybe it won't be with the next LMO staff, they might be more open and willing to accept a wider variety of costumes, we won't know that until the elections are over.
  9. This costume does look cool. But it only existed as a vision and wasn't something that actually happened to Kal, so it's debatable if this could be a legion approved costume.
  10. I'll put out there a second praise for Gio and his work, I have a pair of his animated Clone Trooper boots and they're probably one of the comfiest pairs of shoes I own (costume or not).
  11. Bummer that there's not more images of his back, that would really help things.
  12. Welcome to Star Wars costuming, where nothing is consistent and the details don't matter
