Hi everyone!

Ozzy here from central Sweden!
I was looking to join the Rebel Legion (or maybe 501st, undecided).
And I have always loved the orange x-wing pilot jumpsuit, so I've been searching eBay and so one.


But I was thinking: How would it work within the community if I would go full on Luke? With the DL-44 (ESB Han solo, but that's what I have at the moment) and ANH FX Lightsaber, the whole 10 yards!

Is the "individual-character" costumes common, or would it be more appropriate to just do a random x-wing pilot and be "one the the crowd" so to speak Ben

And second: Where can I find a decent helmet? XD
One that I don't have to save up for over the course of 6 months o.O


Appreciate all the help!

Greetings.

You can do a Luke Skywalker X-wing pilot, many people have, you just need to follow the standards of not only the X-wing pilot but also the Luke Skywalker standards as well.

Luke standards: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8874

Pilot standards: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8851

There's no reason you can't do a face character if you want. The Rebel Legion has a number of X-wing pilot Luke Skywalker, Biggs Darklighter, Wedge Antilles, Jek Porkins costumers and so on. Or you can go for a generic X-wing pilot and would only need to follow the X-wing pilot standards, but you could not have a lightsaber for a generic X-wing pilot.

Be careful when buying things from Ebay... An auction may say something is accurate and approved by the Rebel Legion but it's very common that these parts actually don't meet the standards. Before you buy anything it would be a wise idea to post on the forum and ask for opinions about the item, that way you don't buy something only to find out that it wont pass.

As for helmets, DarthHair makes them, though I'm not sure what kind of wait list there is. I think that Rando Mextra sells them as well but I have no idea what they cost or, again, what kind of wait list there might be...

Agree with what Alex said above. Another helmet maker is DW Designs (also here on the RL boards).

As for Luke vs. Generic, that really depends on several things. (1) What's your personal preference? (2) Do you have any other Luke's in the general area what you'll duplicate the character at events? (3) If you're with a lot of other pilots at an event, do you want to stand out as different. and (4) being a generic pilot allows you an option of individualizing your helmet paint scheme. Just some things to think about, either way we'll be glad to have you ... GO ORANGE!
