Why is there not a "Generic tusken" standard ?

Everything is in the title. I'm starting this discussion as I found no evidence of such a discussion, so as the ep1 standard went from 2 robes to only one since few years ago I was wondering :

Given that tuskens are not a military organisation, and thus should not be a uniform... Wouldn't it make sense to merge the various tusken standards in a single one "generic" like we have generic jedi ?
This would allow to mix various standard parts that are single or dual robes, breather, etc. with the requirements that if it's single robe then it has to conform to a design A similar to ep1/2 while if dual robes then the inner robes design is B form ep4 for example.
With the breather being optional with both ?

The facts tusken would make sense to have diversity is that in one pic with 3 tuskens, we have already 3 different gaffi sticks for example...


As this ever been considered ? If so, why not adopt it ?
Thx in advance.

Similar conversations have come up in the past, usually after better references become available, and the CRLs have been updated to reflect those discoveries. From a certain point of view, the Tusken standards are already “generic”. But to first address your initial reference to a “Design A” and “Design B” scenario… within the same CRL. That’s why we have two different Tusken CRLs. The costumes have enough uniqueness to them to have them as their own CRL. The only sticking point seems to be whether someone can wear an OT neck breather with their PreQ Tusken, or omit it when wearing their OT Tusken. PreQ Tuskens were not see wearing them, and OT Tuskens are never seen without. It’s that simple.

Regarding diversity (different gaffi for example), there is infinite diversity within the Tusken costume community. If it were truly a “set standard”, we would be requiring members to ALL use identical fabrics, the EXACT same bandoliers, and headwraps that matched one of (Design A, B, or C) screen Tuskens… and film-accurate gaffi down to length, shape, and style. Other costumes that have different CRLs based on films: X-Wing Pilots from RO to OT; Stormtroopers from Hero to Stunt; Imperial Guards from ROTS to ATOC to ROTJ; Clone Troopers from ROTS to AOTC; etc. (The “Bantha Rider” is under review, but that’s being discussed elsewhere.)

So combining the PreQ and OT Tuskens is not going to happen because they have unique parts specific to the film in which they are seen. You need to either pick one to make and wear… or make both! But will need to follow the CRLs for each specific one. Wink

Yeah but all the costumes you mention here are not the same case because they are uniforms, so they are intended to be the same more or less, and thus the component part may evolve from movie to movie because of that, and then it makes sense to really block other possibilities.

Still, I don't see why a tusken could not be with a inner and outer robe, but without a respirator :s
