Hi everybody,

Just a quick question regarding the Hoth goggles and costume standards. According to the standards, Han's goggles should be yellow/amber tinted. While I know this to be true of Luke and many of the other Rebel troopers, every image I find of Han seems to look like they are clear. I don't know how to post photos here, but google "Han Solo Hoth Costume" and click on images. There are several close-up head shots of Han, and the goggle lenses look clear in every one.

Is there any evidence that they are yellow, based on costumes from any of the Celebrations or Magic of Myth? I know not many have registered this costume formally, but I am willing to go where few others have (even though I live in the desert). I just don't want to have my costume denied because of lens color.

I would prefer to leave them clear, as that is how they appear in the film, but if someone can show otherwise, then yellow it is. Thanks for any thoughts or opinions.

May the Force be with you,

Brian

Post a picture of what you have... then we can discus it. If there are mistakes to the standards we will take them to the detachment, talk it over and get them changed.

Thanks for bringing it up!

Hi All,

OK, here is one of the images which, to me, shows Han's goggles having clear lenses. Took a little work to figure out how to post this, but what do you guys think? Yellow/amber, or clear?

Look forward to hearing from you all.

May the Force be with you,

Brian

Clearly shows Han with un-tinted goggles while Luke wears a pair with yellow tint.

I agree the standards should be changed.
