    These don't look "Star Wars" to me but neither did the old orange shirts. This is definitely an improvement over the old costumes, at least.

    Very true. Looks to be possibly the same type of cloth using for the MS costumes, making it light and airy (and slightly awkward, but that's a whole different story). These ones definitely have more of a Trek-look IMHO, especially the male version.

    Not that I'm complaining since I'm a Trekkie...:lookaroun

    They Should Have A Little More To Do With Star Wars

    Have to second the sentiment that they look more appropriate for Star Trek than Star Wars. To me a Star Wars costume would be more layered, detailed and involved. Maybe not the most practical idea when working an attraction, but I would think a good costume designer could solve such problems.

    Seriously, CMs work where Disney sticks them. If they don't want to work at the location Disney offers them when they apply, they don't get hired. The CMs at Star Tours look just like all the CMs everywhere else. I'm willing to bet that many Star Tours CMs have never even seen a Star Wars movie, or at least seen any of them besides the first one. A lot of people I work with don't even like/haven't seen many Disney movies, even though our three rides are all based off of Disney classics and most Disney fans would kill to work where we do.

    Anyway, I think the costumes are fine. They're not that Star Wars-y, but they look like interplanetary flight attendants, which is essentially what they're supposed to be, right? They're much better than the blinding things the CMs used to have to wear.

    The costumes are alright. It looks like they're off-shoots of the Mission: SPACE costume; probably to save money.

    Those CM's are getting way more exercise standing around Star Tours for 12 hour shifts than all of us are sitting here on our computers.

    Anyway, back on topic, my first though when I saw the concept art was Star Trek II. I'll wait until I see the final product at the attraction to make my decision. For the record, they really don't look much like Mission: Space costumes, except perhaps around the sleeves.

    By the way, the new merchandise costume looks like a cross between that and the Mousegear costume.

    The costumes are ok to me, i guess i just thought they'd want them to fit in with Star Wars a little more.

    Agree. And, if they had read any of the Star Wars expanded Universe novels or thumbed through any of the Star Wars comics I think they would look better. I understand that citizens/ workers in the Star Wars Universe wear both an under and over tunic with pants that are much like cargo pants. And the colors would maybe be more earth toned.

    I see they went with the Star Tours: Voyager look. Or is that Star Tours: Deep Space 9? So hard to tell.

    Some of you beat me too it. Definitely look more Trek than Wars, but they look better than the jumpers they had IMO.

    Definitely more classic movie series than either of those 2 shows.

    I cannot see the original links to the photos. They show up when I am responding, but otherwise I cannot see the photos you are mentioning. Can anyone help?

    Why not just have recognizable costumes from the movies, such as Storm troopers, rebel uniforms, heck even an ewok or two? I'm serious, why look to make a generic, "this is an otherworldly fashion", uniform?

    I like them. WAY better than the old ones. Even for the 80s you have to ask what were they thinking?

    Because this is not star wars, it is star tours. They are basically flight attendents, so why would they be dressed like storm troopers.

    Not true. When I was hired, I was asked where I wanted to work, and they told me what was available. Main Street Ops I told him was my first choice, and he very kindly gave me the slot. :wave:
