If you haven't seen them yet, the previews for Star Wars: Rebels season 2 have our heroes meet up with the Rebel Fleet, and we see some sweet starfighter and pilot action!

What's better, is that the lesser-seen pilot costumes are being used, like the green, red and gray jumpsuits! They also have A- and B-wings, though they're not strictly keeping the pilot jumpsuit colors associated with their craft, as we can see that they're mixing and matching helmets.





Also, the inclusion of A-wings and B-wings in this pre-Yavin period is interesting for those who have played the X-Wing computer game that was recently re-released on Steam and GOG. Feel free to discuss that in my other thread:
Comparisons of Star Wars: Rebels and the X-Wing PC Game

But here we can discuss these versions of the pilot uniforms. I know some of you guys will really pick this apart....go!

I know that the EU is no longer part of the cannon but the A-Wings seen in the trailer for Season 2 do look more like the R-22

One thing I do notice is that the chestboxes on all three color pilots is the same. The male red and the male green have the same vest, with the grey female being almost the same, but lacking the pale grey/white "triangle patch" in the front. The red female has a different vest entirely, and also wears a white belt / harness.

I do like the look of these, but I am hesitant to put my hand at building one until I actually see one of these concepts in the show. Smile
