Well, he was a good guy at the end ... but its after all the Darth Vader costume. I don't think he approvable for the RL.

On a similar topic: Dark Empire Luke Skywalker isn't elligible for the 501st as well, since he's, well, Luke Skywalker. ^^

I mean, not clasic costume of Darth Vader, but specific "damaged" version - from moment, when he again turned to the light side ...

ps: I really cannot understand why, are approvable clone troopers phase I in 501st ...

It would still be recognizable as Darth Vader, so probably the answer is still NO. Of course, you'd have to hear from the Powers that Be for a final answer.

But if it were put to a vote, I'd vote "No".

If so you might need it to be the helmet off version (done quite well by Mark Fordham if you want to have a look). But even so he was in pretty rough shape at that point so walking about and interacting with people would be odd.

There's always the Infinities Vader Redeemed if you want to do a "good Guy" Vader, but it would probably have to be a personal project and not for Legion membership.

INFINITIES Vader and Mark's Vader at CV

I seem to recall the only Vader Redeemed available for membership is Ghost Anakin...which really is just regular Anakin.
But I would agree with what was said earlier, if anything it would probably have to be with the helmet off. I do have a 501st friend who picked up the Redeemed skull cap from some run.

I slot this costume question in the 'it doesn't make sense but makes perfect sense category'
Agreed that Damaged Vader redeemed himself and could be considered a good guy. However as previously stated you would be seen as Vader, the head bad guy. On that same string of logic is the Han or Luke is TK disguise. RL doesn't accept them even though they are clearly rebel b/c they would just be seen as TKs.
However the question arises, what are we about, representing the good guys or representing the good guys that the general population will know are the good guys. Anakin wore the same outfit in ROTS when he was good as when he was bad, but we recognize that costume as being good.
It is a difficult issue and no easy answer for sure

If this is a costume that you wish to pursue, then by all means do so, but Darth Vader is still Darth Vader. If you were to portray the Anakin Skywalker (Shaw as the original or Hayden as the DVD version), that certainly would be acceptable as a Rebel Legion costume.

The same logic goes for any person with a TK bucket, "oh hey, I'm really Han Solo or Luke Skywalker from ANH" or Nik Sant dressed as a Biker Scout. All three of those characters have primary costumes if you wish to build one for our costuming group.

Not to deviate off the topic, but I think the Dark Empire Luke Skywalker would be an acceptable costume for the Rebel Legion Wink

But I think with TK Solo and Luke it is not same case like Vader in end of ROTJ ...

Darth Vader WITH HAND CUT OFF is, I think, specific costume -> there is no reason say somebody "och hey, I am good Vader" - because there is direct difference in costume with comparation with "evil Vader" - in hand cut off Smile

Losing his hand is really not where Vader turned back to the good side, it was seeing Luke being electrocuted by the Empire that turned him.

This costume, with or without a right hand, is still Darth Vader and belongs in the 501st.

Not to sound rude or anything, but if you want to be Vader, you should join the 501st. Very Happy

Redeemed Vader would not be an acceptable RL costume.

Ghost Anankin Skywalker IS an acceptable RL costume.

I would hope both, but Shaw is superior.
