I have started a new separate thread to transfer all disucssions pertaining to setting up the Malaysian Outpost for REBEL LEGION. Hence the reply you have originally posted in the "Bad Guys" thread, 501st Legion Garrison for MALAYSIA-BRUNEI have been transferred here :

Looking at some of the pictures of MYSCIFIFAN STAR WARS COSTUME CONTINGENT members' appearances, the Malaysian Rebel Legion can make up of Jedi Knights, Rebel Fleet Troopers and Naboo Pilots for starters :

Should be set a target date, say 15 June to make all submissions to 501st and Rebel Legion?
Due to my recent workload, I would say a more realistic timeframe for compiling and submitting the necessary member details for the 501st at my end is within the month of June 2005, by the 30th. However, you Jedis and Rebels that have more time at your end can proceed with the ncessary submissions to Rebel Legion by 15 June 2005.

For all those who are interested in joining the Rebel Legion under the MySciFiFan umbrella, please make your intentions known here so that I can coordinate the registration.
Although you'll need to register with the Rebel Legion individually and be accepted by them, if you meet their requirements, MySciFiFan will assist you in anyway possible, and will also act as a centrel gathering point for all malaysian Rebel Legion members when we register the MALAYSIAN BASE. Later if there're enough members in certain areas we might branch out to state level bases.
Here're some info from the FAQ page to help you prepare for registration:
1. What do I need to become a Member? All you need is a picture of you in a professional grade costume that is recognizable as a "good guy" from the Star Wars universe. You must also be at least 18 years of age (19 in Alabama). Animals, stuffed or real, are not elligible for membership. Please see Article II: Membership and Article VII: Costuming Standards of our Club Charter for more information.
2. What is the difference between a Forum-Only account and a Member? A person with a forum-only account has the ability to post on the forum, but is not considered a member of the Rebel Legion club. A Member meets the requirements for membership (see above) and has requested membership and has been approved by the Enlistment office.
3. How do you define an acceptable costume? A costume should be recognizable if one is familiar with the type of costume you are creating. It should be complete, that is you have the entire costume, not just one piece of it. It also needs to look professional. A bathrobe, a set of pajamas and a flashlight don't qualify as a Jedi costume. For more information, please refer to Article VII: Costuming Standards of the Rebel Legion Club Charter.
4. Can I just use a store bought costume? No. Although we accept costumes where some parts of the costume are from store bought products, simply going out to the store and buying a costume is not enough.
5. Do you accept costumes from the Expanded Universe (books, comics, games, etc.)? Yes we do. However, some events require canon costumes. All events that require canon costumes will be noted as such in any events calendars. If your costume is based on an obscure character, please provide us with reference images or text from the novel that your character comes from so that we can accurately judge your costume. All costumes based on the Expanded Universe are designated as Informal/Non-Canon. For more information about this, please refer to Article VII: Costuming Standards of the Rebel Legion Club Charter.
6. Do you accept customized and original costumes? Absolutely! We love to see how creative our members can be. Just look through our Members section to get an idea of what is possible. We do not accept all custom or original costumes, and such costumes are usually designated as Informal/Non-Canon. Please refer to Article VII: Costuming Standards of the Rebel Legion Club Charter for more information.
7. I've submitted my info, so why isn't my costume on the site? Be patient. We receive many requests for membership and it takes time to get them all done. If it's been more than 1 week since you signed up, send an e-mail to the Enlistment Office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Be sure to include your username in the body of the message.
8. I'm a member of another fan club, is that okay? Yes, we will not prevent anyone from joining us simply because of their affiliation with another group.
9. My profile was on the old site, but I'm not on the new one. How come? The old "profiles" were little more than a photo and a name, and many of them lacked e-mail addresses or information of any kind. The new profiles, like the new site, actually have something under the hood this time. They are actually user logins for accessing members-only features including the forums, user and costume editing features, and exclusive members-only content. If you want to be on the new site, please submit your information by going to the Join the Rebellion section and signing up (you must be at least 18, 19 in Alabama). Type in your old handle (i.e JK-47) in the picture URL and we will copy your old picture, unless you want to use a new photo.
10. How come you don't have ID numbers like the 501st? We used to have them on the old site, but when the new site was created, it was decided that we should abandon them because they don't fit into a Rebel-themed group where individuality and uniqueness are valued. Character names are used instead.

I'm toying with the idea of acquiring an armour (at the moment my fave is Clone Trooper) to join trooping the and the Costume Contingent etc.
Have previously read with interest the 501st legion and then the Rebellion sites and notice that CT's appear in both! So, since CT is a "good guy" (still!) and it's well fully armoured as compared to the rest of the "Good guys", I think I stick to CT first (financial to consider first). Maybe/hopefully this year (have to overcome my guilt feeling/conscience first)....
But to the would-be/wanna-be CTs and would-be/wanna-be ST's out there, my messages is(by all means no offence/discrmination to the STs!): Since there's been historically huge following and market out there, I'd like to see more CTs (here, worldwide) since it's the only good guys in full armour (something which the Rebel Alliance so far has been lacking) to "counter" the number of STs! hehe....
Dunno what the rest think.... so basically to me (thanks to Ep.II) now you can a nice piece of armour AND be a good guy .... I think it's a bonus...hehe ;D

Yes I want to see more CT as well. Another bonus is that thanks to the Animated Series, now you can paint your CT armour in various colours and wear cape as well! How cool is that?!
I actually bought quite a few of those Kellog's CT helmet and wanted to make my own CT army for display(by cutting the armour out of white PVC sheets and bending/shaping them with hot air gun), but realised that I will never have the time to achieve it, or the space to display all of them, so I'm now selling off those helmets.
