Topic: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

This was noticeable when a Boba Fett ornament came out with an upside-down mythosaur emblem on his armor (made it a great collectible), but I have seen another incident on the inside back cover of a couple of issues of Star Wars Insider.  It's an ad for the Miniatures sets I think are part of a game.  The picture I saw is one of the Boba and Jango figures, and it clearly shows the mythosaur symbol on Boba UPSIDE-DOWN.  Anyone else notice this?

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

Its a mythasaur skull. It can't be as the horns come from the lower part of the head where as the bantha's come from the top of the cranium. And a mythosaur was a HUUGE beast that roamed Mandalore but were wiped out at some point cuz they were wayyyy to dangerous.

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

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

I look up mando skull on google and it all comes up Bantha, in a star wars mag they called it a bantha skull watch even on star wars.com. and mythosaur doesnt come up on any star wars animal list.

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

Those were written before it became the Mythosaur officially. Read the Marvel comics.

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

That's true, but I too have always heard Mythosaur.  Hunting them was supposedly a right of passage for Mandalorians.  I have also heard Bantha, so yes, I heartily agree, cujo. 

Ahhh okay Dageen--thanks for the link!  This one I started can be locked if the admins want to wink

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

I bought a star wars boba fett bounty hunter miniature for $72 and looked for any bad paint jobs on it and found non. One day later I find his symbol upside down, I thought it was a stuff up in the paint job but two days later i find in a miniature magazine of boba and jango that his symbol is upside down so I go on the internet and find that all of the symbols are upside down. Im happy it was painted well on not just that one was upside down, its still good for its Boba .

As You Wish

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

Yes, the paint job is good on them smile

Sadriel--I have never seen the Neo-Crusader emblem.  That looks cool, but it slightly reminds me of the Klingon logo...I kinda see comparisons between the Klingons and Mandalorians anyway.

Yeah, same here.  A lot of the "warrior race" themes permeate the two.

Here's what FettFan is talking about, in case no one else is a Trekker.

Re: The Upside-down Mythosaur emblem

I think we had a topic thread all about the Mandalorian/Klingon similarities, didn't we? I'm not a Trekker, but I've seen enough to see the resemblances.

Thanks for posting pics of both symbols smile  Side-by-side it's more apparent
