Topic: Old mando canon vs the new

i just want to know everyones opinion about the mando's going from the best warriors in the galaxy to a race of pacifists... honestly this is kills me a lot on the inside because 21 years of star wars fandom has bread mando's as warriors into my mentality... but like i said i just want to know what others think

Firmly, and utterly against it. Pacifists Mando'ade is crap.

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

I HATE it. It's total bs. Why do they want to change so much of the story? I have been brooding over this for weeks, and if I wasn't so tired this evening, I would rant for hours about this. sad

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

Boba as he was in the film is still canon. Since he's part of George Lucas' films, whatever he does, who he is, what his background is, is canon.

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

"canon"

a cannon is a gun =P

and not all mando's are pacifists
it's just a group of them

Jaster's "true mandalorians" still exist, they just got wiped out on galidraan, just like Jango wiped out the death watch later on, and now death watch is back. That said, true mandalorians take a while to come back into the picture, thanks to Boba Fett taking up his dad's legacy

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

Um yeah they're not changing the canon of the movies. I don't think that will ever change.

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

I'm more concerned with the canon in the Republic Commando series. I couldn't care less about the canon in the movies.

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

i apologize for my misunderstanding, the way that things were explained from everything i read that anything that connected to the mando's from the point on when in the cartoon they were stated to become peace lovers, was erased because it never would have happend

Actually, "canon" is a word.

–noun
1.
an ecclesiastical rule or law enacted by a council or other competent authority and, in the Roman Catholic Church, approved by the pope.
2.
the body of ecclesiastical law.

And I like Fett's story from Bounty Hunter Wars and Tales of the Bounty hunters best.

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

notice how he said a cannon is a gun.

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

lol thanks for that

I already edited the title of the thread, even though its premise is false hehe

"Those with the ability to lead, have the responsibility to do so."

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

The whole thing is BS.  George has ruined the RC stories.  He needs to go away already.  I will miss the real Mandos.

and honestly not much has changed (yet), so not all is lost

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

lets just hope that some true mando's show up in the cartoon and return them to what they should be, because i am fearful of what may become of our most beloved group.... based around a character with like 5 lines and 15minutes of air time tongue

lol we've said a few times in this thread that all of the "true" mandos are basically wiped out during this time period, which is the only reason why the death watch is rebuilt and the pacifists rule Mandalore

young Boba Fett *should* make an appearance by the end of this season though, dunno about armor

"Those with the ability to lead, have the responsibility to do so."

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

well it shows the guards in something close to mando armor.... if the helmets are a little odd and unshapely. but i still hope we see more from the mandos than pacifists and the deathwatch if thats batter than saying ture mandos

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

Look at it this way, it's far better to watch the Death Watch get beat up by Jedi than our true Mandos lol

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

yes yes it is tongue but id still like to see obi-wan kick one of the fan helmets in the face... just because those buckets are ugly as heck

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

Well  hopefully some one will see the mistake that the mandos have become and try to fix it.

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

Once again, Mandos have not become anything...
they're still all wiped out from Galidraan and then scattered from Jango's death.

I am 100% fine with that.

Re: Old mando canon vs the new

having read the posts in mando culture, i would like to retract most of my statements since it now all makes sense
