Skins I still hope to see

1. Imperial skins
2. Expanded Alien & Human skins
3. Droid / Separatist skins
4. Reinforcement skins
5. First Order skins
6. Additional Clone skins

1. Imperial skins:
Stormtrooper pauldrons in black, white, orange, and red, locked to ascending Assault level. Imperial Navy Trooper as an Assault skin. Tank Trooper and Tank Trooper Commander skins for Heavy. Shock Troopers as a max-rank skin for Heavy. Black Stormtrooper Officer uniforms, Olive Imperial Army Officer uniforms, and white ISP Officer uniforms, all locked to ascending Officer level. TIE Pilots and AT-AT Drivers as Officer skins. Stormtrooper snipers with ponchos, and Storm Commandos (aka Shadow Scouts), both as Specialist skins, with the Storm Commandos locked to max Specialist level.

2. Expanded Alien & Human skins
Allow all aliens for all R&R classes, and all humans for all classes and factions. Ideally this would also come with at least some expansion of gender options, it can't be too hard to put a female voice on a Stormtrooper for example. Ideally everything would have a male option and a female option, except of course for clones and droids.

3. Droid / Separatist skins
Green B-1 Marine markings, 3 variations, for Assault. Orange markings for Heavies. Yellow shoulder markings and blue Pilot markings for Officers. Non-droid Separatist Officer options (Aqualish and Quarren). Red officer-like markings for the Specialist Citadel Captain skin.

4. Reinforcement skins
Galactic Marines to replace Republic Wookiees. Phase-1 Clone Jet Troopers with green Sergeant markings for Aerials. Clone Paratroopers for max level Aerials. Range Troopers for Imperial Enforcers. Imperial Super Commandos for Aerials, max level. Various human and alien options for Rebel and Resistance Aerials.

5. First Order skins
Executioner for Assault. Gunner and Walker Driver for Heavy. A gray Captain uniform and a teal Major uniform, for Officers. Elite Troopers with black and red armor, for Specialists.

6. Additional Clone skins
41st Ranger Scouts for Specialist and Assault. A 91st Assault with regular helmet. A 327th Officer with brick-red markings instead of the brown. A 327th Assault with a medium pauldron instead of large. Large-pauldron versions of the Officers that have medium pauldrons. Kamas for the Specialists who don't have kamas. An AT-RT Driver Heavy for each legion. An ARF Trooper Assault and/or Specialist for each legion.

    Though to be fair, only 11 of those 100+ skins are anything more complicated that a recoloring or moving a pauldron around.

    As far as future hero skins go, the top priorities imo should be:

    (In no particular order)

    Death Star II Luke (this one would take very little effort by DICE, as it is literally his default outfit minus the poncho that he wore on Tatooine if I'm not mistaken)

    Bespin Luke

    Rebels or Solo Maul

    Old Ben Kenobi (if it is possible, there have been debates about rather or not it is possible due to Alec Guiness' estate holding the right to his likeness)

    The humans and aliens would be especially easy, along with gender options.
  • Brilliant post, excellent list, very well put together.

    I've seen a number of these skin posts and threads with a lot of work and time gone into making them. None of which have been implemented, or even replied to.

    I hope they do it. The game needs a large scale infantry only option though, to justify such efforts.
  • Skin variations for aliens?

  • Good write-up! Agree with everything.

    I like most of the skins EA has given us, but I think they dropped the ball on the three main OT characters.

    Luke — it would be an anachronism to put Luke in his Tatooine tunic and give him Jedi powers, but who care?!!! A Red 5 skin would be great, but bright orange is not a wise choice unless you want the other team to know when you’re coming from a mile away.

    Han — 2 out of his 6 skins are from “Solo” .... I guess the movie was ok-ish, but Harrison Ford is the only Han Solo there will ever be, period the end. I’ll never agree with the stupid beard skin. And, just like Luke, his most famous getup is from ANH and nowhere to be found.

    Leia — we all know what her most famous outfit is, but her 2nd most famous (cinnamon buns and white gown) really should be in the game by now. After making 4 non-ANH Leia skins, it just feels like they’re deliberately going out of their way to not give fans what they want.

    But we have a damaged chewie, so that’s ....... good?
  • More clone skins:

    - Clone paratroopers
    - 41st elite Scout troopers
    - ARF troopers
    - 442nd Siege Battalion
    - 21st Nova Corps
    - 332nd Battalion
    - 187th Legion
    - Keeli's company
    - Naboo Security Guard



    Skin for officer droid:

    - Tactical droid
    - Neimoidian skin

  • Reposing this from another skin thread as it covers most of what I personally would like to see. With regards to Clone skins, they've given us more than enough.

    Rebel/Resistance:

    Ishi Tib, Dressellian, Shistavanen, Ithorian, Mon Calamari, Bith, Gran, Rebel pilot (X, A, Y and B Wing) different skin colours for all alien races, cute women with bouncy ponytails.

    Empire:

    Shocktrooper, Navy Trooper, ATAT Driver, TIE Pilot, DS Gunner, Imperial Ground Crew, pauldron customization, all of the various Officer colours (black, white etc), Shoretrooper (Trooper, Squad Leader and Captain) assuming Scarif is added.

    FO:

    TIE Pilot, Special Forces TIE Pilot, FO Crew Member, FO Walker Driver, pauldron customization.

    Republic:

    41st Scout.

    Separatist:

    Battle damage to B1's? What more can they do for strictly skin customization?

    Enforcers:

    Not exactly skins, but I would like to see Royal Guards, FO Riot Control Trooper, Bothan spies, Ewoks, Droidekas. I would also like to see skins for all Aerials (along with emotes and victory poses).

    Yep, it's pretty frustrating. There's still a ton that can, and should, be done in terms of skins. All the lists pretty much are asking for the same sorts of things in terms of customization for Troopers and Heroes.

    I agree wholeheartedly ESPECIALLY the Luke DS2 skin
  • There would be so much possibilities to sell a lot of skins in an universe like Star Wars.
    They could even make the character editor like they made it in Battlefield 5 where you can pick different clothes too.

    But somehow EA and Dice don't see how to make more easy money in this case.
    I think they don't want to spend much more man power into this game anymore, i mean it's on sale for 5,00 euro - says a lot...

    I forgot about hero skins. I don't really play you're as much. But here:

    Shifting defaults - one thing I think would be a really good idea for hero skins is to have the default for each character be different depending on the map. This might be a good compromise between era accuracy and freedom of choice, and it also lets people sort of take a tour of certain skins to see what they're like. Of course, this is only doable if a good amount of skins are made, and only certain characters really would change much between maps.

    But yeah, basically, with this idea the default on one map could be very different from the default of several others, and some maps might even have a default it isn't available as a purchasable skin. For example, I think that the Hoth Luke skin should have been the default for Hoth, and not purchasable at all. likewise, the default skin for Luke on Takodana and Jakku etc should be Old Jedi Master Luke, and it shouldn't be purchasable in general.

    LUKE
    Really, the first of any bunch of hero skins should go to Luke, who's basically gotten nothing for the whole game which is ridiculous. Hoth Luke is the only Luke skin that should never have been made available. My first choice for Luke (and the only other hero skin that I care about at all now that I've gotten clone armor General Kenobi) is the yellow jacket Luke from the end of ANH and the time between that and Empire. After that, X-Wing pilot Luke, Bespin fatigues Luke, hooded cloak Luke, Endor Poncho Luke, farmboy Luke. Fatigues would be default for Bespin, Poncho would be default for Endor, old Luke would be default for Jakku and Takodana. Temple Master Luke would be default for Crait.

    After that, these:

    Classic Leia - white robes, buns

    General Leia - from RotJ

    Classic Han

    Old Ben - default for all GCW era maps, not buyable

    Old Han - default for Sequel maps, not buyable

    Old Leia - default for Sequel maps, not buyable

    Red Robes Sidious - default for CW maps, buyable

    Mech-Legs Maul

    Helmetless Boba Fett

    Which is proof for you to stop making pointless threads about things that are never going to be implemented

    Why would they add more things that don’t make them any money?

    Indeed. I think my point has been proven with march calendar.
    Dooku in sleepwear skin????!!!???

    In all of the well executed and thought out skin request posts I've seen I have never seen a request for that. Why? Just...why?. It's actually hilarious.

    I haven't bought the sgt pepper dooku skin and won't be.. definitely won't be buying his PJs either.

    No money made from me there.
  • Awesome post, all I'd change/add is make the Imperial Tank Trooper an Assault skin whilst the Tank Commander is the Heavy. I'd also add the Tactical Droid (maybe Super Tactical Droid aswell) for the CIS Officer

    I bet you're fun at parties.

    Skins are about the only thing that could make them money, if they made enough of them.

    Honestly, there's only one skin that I would really want at this point, and would honestly spend real world money on. But we all know that that particular skin would never be put in this game, due to disney and lucasfilm not wanting anything to do with it, even though it was in one of the original trilogy movies.

    Thanks! Nice idea with the Assault move. Doesn't fit the Trooper type particularly well, but it does spread the look across more skins.

    I'd love to see the Tactical Droid as an officer skin. I was actually assuming that the Droid class lineup would be: Assault=B1 Droid, Heavy=B2 Super Battle Droid, Officer=TX Series Tactical Droid, and Specialist=B1 Security (or BX Commando Droid). But at this point, a TX Tactical skin would have to be a Legendary skin, because it wouldn't just be a new skin, it would be a new model too. =/

    But if we're wishing, I'd love to see this:
    • ASSAULT - B1 Battle Droid, with various green Droid Marine markings as skins
    • HEAVY - B2 Super Battle Droid, with blue-metal and black-metal skins
    • OFFICER - OOM Commander Droid, with TX Tactical skin and T3 Super Tactical skin
    • SPECIALIST - B1 Security Droid, with BX Commando Droid skin
    • AERIAL - B1 Jet Droid, with B2-HA Super Jump Droid skin
    • ENFORCER - IG-100 Magnaguard, with Elite Magnaguard skin
