    I saw some of the designs in the new insider. I like the Imperial Knights and the new Sith. The Knight reminds me a little of the Royal Guard armor in Crimson Empire.

    From what I'm hearing, several people already have some Legacy costumes in the works, including the
    knights. I like most of the new stuff..the new TIE's are interesting..

    Check http://www.327thstarcorps.com/ There's talk there about the Imperial Knights, and a pic of the armor.

    They do seem to be a cross between the Jedi and Royal Guards, both in appearance and function. And keep in mind, the new Emperor is a good guy...

    Interesting. That one pic of an Imperial Knight seems to be based off of Vaders Black Body Suit, with the red armor plates over it. Its a good look.

    In the "Tales of the Jedi" series they would wear armor on occasion. And in the fight between Luke and Darth on Cloud City, Luke's saber deflected of Darth's shoulder armor. Didn't feel too good, but for once he didn't lose a limb.

    If nothing else, the Imperial Knights certainly look more intimidating than their robed cousins.

    Edited for poor spelling.

    Beyond the history, it appears that the Imperial knights have become the new Royal Guards of the Empire. The armor has similarities with RG armor, and they are devoted to the Empire, not the force. The bodyglove was probably a form of general issue, and wasn't it the suit itself that Luke took a chunk out of on Cloud City?

    from one of the frames I saw, it looks like the imperial knights have a half-cape hanging from the waist. That, and the vambraces look really cool.

    I do wish the sabers weren't quite so plain looking. OTOH, a lot of folks should be able to do decent hardware versions.

    Seems the Imperial Knights wear a jedi/Empire belt buckle. The lightsabers are all the same and simple due to Imperial mindset, AKA all the same and all function.

    The Imperial Knights all have the same style saber. So it's more of an "issued equipment" idea.

    We had a request for that costume. The guy couldn't decide whether he wanted fiberglass or leather. I think either would look cool.
