That's a great start, Thorn- thank you! I've adjusted some of the wording and added a couple of items.

Overall, this is going to be a work in progress until solid references can be produced and posted on the forum.

With regard to blasters: Most of the troops carry the A280-CFE in various configurations. Some have what appears to be a DH-17.

I know a lot of us have Endor A280's or Hoth A295/A280C's. How do people feel about allowing Endor or Hoth blasters for this costume?

For the record, I think the new NERF blasters could be modded to make a respectable A280-CFE.

ANH caps look extended along the bottom and possibly in coyote brown (for those with endor donuts) best current reference is the small metallic helmets

For the shirt, it appears most of them have a Han Solo pant-type ribbing down the sleeves in a khaki/tan/brown color.

Especially in this Nissan commercial we can see umpteen various surplus ammo pouches and sling bags from 5 cell Thompson mag pouches in the background to AK mag pouches i the front.
We should try to accommodate for this in the tactical gear respect.

Great reference shot!

And yeah, the standard should have a list of identified field gear and the language to accept 'similar' or 'close enough' pieces.

Cool!
Not all the M69-style vests had added mag or equipment pouches, but all seemed to have the yellow color patch on the right upper chest.

I left that detail off of the standard for now because not all of them either had them or they were different color combinations. We can always add those specific details later on.
