If you don't mind, I'd like to revisit color and logos.

Looking at the clones, there's a lot of variation in color based on the different groups (501st, 41st Elite, 187th, etc.), and we see variations in the colors for the logos and stencils used with the Jedi in the 2008 series.




My wife and I have had generic Jedi Generals since 2010, when we'd been asked about putting them together for a Clone Wars episode premiere in theaters (I'm Scorch, the Jedi on the far right is wearing mine):



We've used them for conventions since. Each of those photos looks like someone spilled a box of Crayolas all over the characters... much like the 2008 series does, in my opinion. If we're looking at "Generic" standards, like we do with the Generic Jedi standards, could we stand to permit more personal interpretation for things like color and logos, so long as we're keeping to colors that we can find reference for depicted in-series?

Love these ideas. Like Abbott below, I am working on arm armor and really wanted to add a helmet someday. In addition, I love the clean white look and was hoping to not be forced to weather anything.

Pictures of all these parts would be fantastic. I dipped my toe in just enough to figure out the arm pieces, and the amount of clone stuff out there is intimidating.

There is also someone in my base that would love the addition of the leather gauntlets.



- any armour parts can either be shiny white (new look) OR be weathered according to the current clone cs of the rebel legion

Are they revising this so that leg armor is mandatory for a Jedi General? I would be against this. On Clone Wars many of the Generals just wore the gauntlets with no additional armor including body or leg. This should be an option and not a mandatory requirement, that's my opinion.
