    tacblue got a reaction from pm07 in Navy Troopers in Obi Wan   
    Nice to see Navy Troopers making a comeback!  Several guarding the bridge of Vader's Star Destroyer.  Looks to me like they might have  followed the ESB model-black officer's uniform (jodphurs, but hard to tell if it's an ANH style tunic or not) ,no belt boxes (at least on the prominent one) and appears to have a DH-17 in the holster. Interesting mix of versions. 
    Edit: actually I see belt boxes now, but they seem unusually subdued.  I suppose it COULD be the lighting but it's odd that the buckle is clear and the boxes aren't.

    I've always been partial to this explanation.  It's from a manual about the Rebel Specforce created by that traitor Madine.

    Thank you for those!
     
    I DO see a slight difference, but I have to say I think they're definitely close enough that the very minor difference would not matter, even for L3.
     
    Perhaps it stands out a touch more in person than in photos - but do recall that L2/L3 applications are processed based on a review of ... photos.

    Greetings IOC, 
     
      I thought I'd make a quick mention for those who might be interested.  
      I've been trying to get hold of a size medium olive officer hat from Anovos for some time.  I have a large that works, but it's a bit too big if I'm being very honest.  Having tried on a Garrison mate's medium, I found it snug but usable, so I've been trying to track one down for quite a few years, including placing another order when Anovos said they were "in stock".  You can imagine how that went... 
      Anyway, I recently was sent an email from a company called Denuo Novo that seems to be partnering with Neca through Rubies.  I suspect this is what Anovos became, though I don't know if the same people are involved.  The logo looks similar, the sizing charts and product descriptions are the same, so I'm assuming it's at least somewhat related.  
      They advertised ID hats, so I took a gamble and ordered a medium in olive grey.  It arrived today and thought I'd give my impressions in case anyone else is in the same boat I was. 
      Fabric appears to be very similar, possibly the same. The shade however, while appearing to be of the same "degree" of color, seems to be a couple shades darker than the original Anovos.  Under some lighting the difference appears negligible, but under others it seems quite noticeable.  The top of the hat has what feels like a layer of interfacing in it, which is absent on the Anovos. The brim is stiffer than the Anovos. The greeblie it comes with is of the type Krennic had on his hat, rather than the normal disk type.   The awful leather sweatband from the Anovos is gone and replaced with a thin, soft grosgrain sweatband. 
      Here's a few pictures to illustrate the color difference.  Anovos has the notched disk, Denuo Novo has the R1 style. Also worth noting is that the Anovos has been trooped in for a few years, and I may have dry-cleaned it back upon its arrival. I'm hoping a trip to the dry cleaners will bring the color of the new one close enough to the Anovos that it will be usable, otherwise I'm stuck with the impossible task of tracking down an old Anovos medium. 
      Hope this may have  been helpful to someone.
