Hey there everyone. I posted these questions in the 501st Imperial Officer forums, and was directed to the Rebel Legion. Which makes sense... not sure why I went to the 501st first...

Anyway, in the beginning of Episode 1, Obi-wan and Qui-gon were flown in on a Republic Cruiser, piloted by two Republic pilots who wore blue uniforms similar to the Empire uniforms of Episodes 4-6. Unfortunately, we can only see the top, so assumptions must be made about the pants. Here are my questions:

1) Is there a forum/topic/crl already dedicated to these costumes? I looked around but didn't see anything that pertained to it. The Old Republic Pilot CRL only covers clone pilots. And these were before the clones were introduced.

2) What color do you suppose the uniforms are? Blue obviously, but any idea of the shade? I've heard Navy Blue, but I think these are lighter than Navy Blue.

3) Without pics of the pants, a complete costume might be impossible to get approved, but what style pants would you think they wore? Straight leg, or jodphurs? The LEGO pants look DARK BLUE, but I read BLACK somewhere....

4) Boots? Standard tall black boots like everyone else?

5) No hat was seen (although the LEGO mini-figs do have hats.), so it can be assumed hats are non-canon.

6) What would be the official title of these pilots? A few thoughts: "Republic Pilots", "Republic Ambassadorial Pilots" (It was an ambassador's ship after all.), "Old Republic Pilot", "Senatorial Pilots", "Senate Pilots"? They're not fighter pilots, so "Republic Pilots" may be too generic. Maybe "Republic Cruiser Pilots". Yeah, I like that one. I vote for "Republic Cruiser Pilot". (Oh, after checking StarWars.com, they're listed as "Republic Cruiser Pilot" and "Republic Cruiser Captain".)

Some pics for reference:

Anyone got any other pics?

Try here http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=20 as the heading indicates it's for all kinds of pilots, including "Naboo".

Ah, Thanks Kate. Ya know I saw that.... but the "Rebel" part threw me off. Well, rather than post this a third time (and since I'm a noob that can't read apparently)... could some mod move this topic for me? Laughing
