Topic: Boba's Missing Armor

This is a continuity error I noticed; Boba has an inconsistent amount of armor pieces throughout the Mandalorian/Book of Boba Fett. He's robbed of literally all his belongings. Then Cobb Vanth finds the vest, helmet, jetpack, gauntlets, and apparently one kneepad. When we see Boba Fett re-armored, he now has two kneepads. But we're still missing the codpiece that was also pried off his original costume, are we to assume that's still with the Jawas? It normally wouldn't be a big deal, but beskar is a pretty sacred material in the universe, and I'd just prefer Boba gets all his original gear back.

I originally assumed Boba still had the missing pieces, but BOBF explicitly shows ALL his armor was taken. I thought the return to the sarlacc would remedy this inconsistency by having some gear still in there, but that was a dead end. Theoretically, Boba could have still tracked down pieces of his suit, but there is no time left to show that in the show if so.

The show also infers that Boba's armor is the same set originally worn by Jango. If so, there's all the missing leg armor to consider as well (though this would date back to before the original trilogy). If he ever meets the Armorer, it would be cool to see these pieces get remade.

Maybe the Wookiee braids got taken by the Sarlacc, the Jawas sold the knee armor to another interested party, and/or Boba can 3D print a replacement? :-P

It's funny to think that before Cobb Vanth got the set, someone only wanted a kneepad and codpiece in particular and nothing else.

Re: Boba's Missing Armor

Another plot hole that I thought would have been addressed: Boba's jetpack is missing the missile when in the Sandcrawler leaving Cobb Vanth to acquire a replacement missile. When did it get fired off? I originally assumed it would factor into the sarlacc pit escape.

For that matter, there may have been hints that the krayt dragon would have contributed to Boba's escape back in season 2.

Re: Boba's Missing Armor

Boba not having a cod-piece still perplexes me.
