501st Legion - Apply for Member Registration

What is the 501st Legion?

The 501st Legion (also known as "Vader's Fist") is a worldwide organization for those who own and wear the costumes of the Stormtroopers, Clone Troopers and other characters from the Star Wars saga. We are one of the world's largest fan organizations and participate in events for charity, promotion and fun.

How can I join?

If you own a high-quality costume representing any of the characters listed in our Costume Reference Library, just follow the steps below. There are no fees and the only requirements pertain to age and costume quality. The 501st is simply a fun, all-volunteer group of fans representing characters from the Star Wars saga.

For further information regarding our mission, please read Article I of the Legion Charter.

STEP ONE: Do you qualify for membership?

  • Do you own a professional quality costume representing a well-documented canon villain or malevolent character from the Star Wars films or Expanded Universe? Note: Rebel or Jedi costumers should join the Rebel Legion, our sister organization.
  • Are you at least 18 years old?

For further information regarding our membership qualifications, please read Article II of the Legion Charter.

NOTE: Star Wars costumes that are commercially available in stores or online may not be acceptable for membership! It is recommended that you contact your Garrison Membership Liaison or the Legion Membership Officer,
