Topic: Mandalorian Armor, more then meets the eye?

So i was thinking, Boba's "color scheme" is a dark green and tanish, while Jango is a blue and silver, well when we see Jango we see him as a buisness man in AOTC and Boba in 'Empire'  as the been through the jungle a few times type of warrior. My question is, would Boba's appearance change the way we view him, if for instance it was red or maybe a dark brown instead of the green thats so recognizable to his character?

If the question is "would we still like him?" im pretty sure everyone still would, without much change. But if the question is "If he changed his color would we care?" It is a matter of tradition, u don't change boba's armor color =P.

Good... Bad... I'm the one with the gun.

Re: Mandalorian Armor, more then meets the eye?

I wouldnt like it if his armor was all shiny like Jangos.

Re: Mandalorian Armor, more then meets the eye?

I would still like him whatever his armor looked like i think the armor isnt the most important thing about Fett.

Re: Mandalorian Armor, more then meets the eye?

One of the things I like about Boba Fett is his beat up dented armor and all the little “extras” he has on it. (i.e. wookie braids, cape, etc.) It shows how much he’s been through and how his armor has protected him. Unlike Jango Fett whose armor is too perfect…..in my opinion.

Well said Jascveus. Mandalorian armor just the coolest thing a star wars charecter could wear covered in weapons it just looks so cool:P.

Re: Mandalorian Armor, more then meets the eye?

true, the extras rock, im just saying if it was a different color it'd take away from all that other stuff

Jango's original armor was olive green and red.
VERY similar to Boba's.
The blue/silver was armor that belonged to a member of Jango's squad that got cut in half by a Jedi.
His name was Myles and his armor was restored and put in a museum until Jango escaped from a prison nearby and stole it.
Its all in Jango fett Open Seasons.

Re: Mandalorian Armor, more then meets the eye?

Somewhere its mentioned that mandalorian armor has a chrome finish until the individual decides to paint it. In Open Seasons most of the True mandalorians have green and red or some forest color but they were always in open warfare. I wonder if for stealth missions some would have all black jumpsuits with black chrome or gunmetal plating. That would look sick.

I turned my back, grabbed my gak, and guess what I told him 'fore I shot him...

Re: Mandalorian Armor, more then meets the eye?

i can see the camo idea working but the black...they would look like shadow troopers

Re: Mandalorian Armor, more then meets the eye?

I might like Boba better if he had red armor with a black or gray trim......kinda like Ghez Hokan.....that would be wicked awesome!

No, Ghez Hokan is from RC Hard Contact. He is a vicious Mando who was even thrown out of the Death Squad for enjoying his work too much. He's pretty dang cool!

Oh whoops. Yeah, I mean Death Watch, it's just that all throughout Hard Contact is the word squad, so I got kinda confused.
