Is there going to be a Jyn version of this costume? Also is there a proposed CrL for the normal ground crewman?

This IS the thread for working in the CRL for the Imperial Ground Crew, and if there's going to be a Jyn version, the Rebel Legion will probably be working on it.

Sarge is correct. We're still developing the Imperial version of the Ground Crew CRL. Soooooo many details on this costume. I know I find something new every time I look at it when I hit Disneyland.

Sadly, the Rebel Legion has decided they are not going to pursue the Jyn variant. For whatever reason, they don't accept disguise costumes. I can think of a few cases where they violate this rule *cough cough Boushh* so I'm not sure why they wouldn't pick this one up. But that's a matter inside Rebel Legion.

That is odd especially considering how often she says rebel.

But hooah to us :) And there is nothing stopping someone from making the Jyn version to enjoy. The crowd would go nuts

So if someone did everything like the jyn version if they are wearing the bucket be submitted here? Or would we need the complete imperial version? Just trying to get an idea before I start investing into a costume for my wife?

I think the main difference between the 2 is Jyn's costume has different gloves and boots, so it wouldn't pass as the Imperial version. But the gloves and boots can be swapped out pretty easily. Not sure if the helmet will be the same or not, Jyn was able to flip the visor to reveal her face.

That is correct. She kept her gloves and boots (even though they would have been a dead giveaway to any Imperial officer) but kept everything else. We're going to assume the helmet is unmodified.

Has anyone completed it yet to spec , so that it can be added to the CRL?

That is a negative. We're still working on the specs since full references are not quite available. I've taken a ton of pictures of the Launch Bay suit but some angles are obscured. At this point, we're waiting for the bluray to hopefully fill in some of the blanks.

Had a feeling, although seems the armor is going in the right direction.

Here's hoping to more reference pics :) thanks for the update Drew!

Hey all! I've been lurking this thread for a while (lots of awesome info here) and thought I'd toss in my finished Jyn Variant of the Imperial Ground Crewman. This is nowhere near anything that would be approveable (not that the Jyn variant is), but it was a lot of fun and I look forward to improving her and adding a bucket/imperial gloves and boots for the 501st eventually! My armor is all EVA foam.The biggest thing I need to re-do are the batons, which are far from screen accurate but I kinda ran out of time :) and lol to my sweet resizing skills.

Hi Robyn. That's a pretty nice job on the costume, especially the suit. What pattern did you use for that?

Thanks! I used this one -http://www.thegreenpepper.com/product/1 ... t-pattern/ with some adjustments (like adding the seam on the back and across the shoulders) It worked out OK but I feel like there are probably better patterns that better match the suit out there.

Well done. It looks great. I'm stoked that these costumes are happening.

Glad to see 'Rogue One' coming to life.
