Ever since the new Vintage Rebel Fleet Trooper was revealed at Toy Fair, people have asked “what’s the deal with that baseball cap?”
After some scouring of movie frames containing the trooper in question, I found that during the Medal Ceremony on Yavin IV, you can in fact see some RFTs wearing caps in the background.
Did the prop dept. run out of RFT helmets and use the caps as a last resort? Tough to know for sure but it looks like they got that obscure detail right for the Vintage release. Sadly, the same can’t be said for the figure’s missing holster.
