A Long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

Founded in 2005 by Kevin Weir, Imperial Surplus has continued to help the Empire grow by hand-sculpting, vac-forming, molding, and rotocasting gear for our favorite troopers across the galaxy. We’ve created numerous armored costumes and helmets that were constructed to look just as they do on the movie screen. Our high attention to detail makes Imperial Surplus the destination for armored costumes from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and more.

Many of our costumes are intended to be approved by the 501st Legion if assembled at their standards. The 501st Legion is a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization operated by fans to promote their love of Star Wars costumes and volunteer charity work. To learn more about the 501st Legion, please click here. Several of our costumes are also approvable by the Rebel Legion, which is the 501st Legion’s sister organization.

Our mission is to support the outstanding work that the 501st Legion and Rebel Legion provide to communities all over the world by assisting costumers with the armor kits and tutorials they need to build the best costumes possible.
