    Didn't Inside The Worlds of AoTC have a few things to say about the Kaminoans?

    Hmm. I don't remember, it's been a while. I'm pretty sure that Lama Su said something about terminating defective clones, though.

    In the Clone Wars Adventures: Volume 3 short story Rogue's Gallery we see Asajj Ventress, Durge and Grievous fight in a trophy gallery and one of the trophies is a mandolorian armour of a heavier design then then the current one, armed with a trident.
    Do we know anything about that armour design?

    Also if somebody that can could put up the image it would be helpful:)
    but I heard that some of it appeared earlier in The Cestus Deception and that book was published before HC

    The helmet looks vaguely like the Death Watch armor, to me.

    Looks very "middle-ages earth" like, with some star wars splashed on it. I'd suspect it's probably something from the Old Republic era from the looks of it.

    I am more thinking antique Rome/Greece interpreted by your usual fantasy artist.
    Do you mean the game?

    I can see some Romanesque traits as well. What points me more towards middle-ages are things like the sabatons (foot armor), spaulders (shoulders/biceps), and currias (chest plate).

    The comics is what I'm thinking. There are so many different types of Mando armor configurations seen on those late-Crusaders (pre-Neo Crusader, post-ancient Crusader) that it can boggle the mind. :)

    About the Phase I clone trooper armor the wook' states that
    from http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Phase_I_clone_trooper_armor

    And I was wondering where this was first established, since the page mostly lack footnotes?


    Also I was wondering if it was known if the Clone armour design team was inspired by the mandolorian armour in real life or if that was established later?
    How is the currias more middle-ages?

    Just the general design. It's much more bulky, with a rounded shape similar more similar to middle-age European than Roman or Greek armor.

    To me the cuirass look like it has stylized sculptured muscles, something I associate to Roman and Greek armours, in my mind middle-age armour have a more... I lack the words to describe so I will try to illustrate what I mean
    [IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]

    and I know some of those cuirass probably are more early renaissance then middle-age but I can not help how my minds eye picture things.

    EDIT: I think I mean that to me middle-age cuirass have more stomach and less marked thorax(?) then the Rogue's Gallery-armour

    What post-crusader era armour have we seen that is different from the standard because of the anatomy of the bearer?


    Do we know what model of gun this is?

    I only know of 2 non-human Mandos of the modern era that have been pictured; Alfreda Goot and Fiskitt Bob:

    Here's an image of Alfreda Goot attacking Han Solo:

    Unfortunately there are no images I've found that show full-body shots of these two in mando armor.

    To bad but still: thanks.

    Also: "modern era"? How long did the crusader-era last?

    Do we know how the inside of a Kom'rk-class fighter looks? Do it have bunks, toilet, any kind of food preparation area?

    There really is no hard end-date (as of yet) for the end of that cultural era, however 1051bby is when Mandalorian armor took on it's modern appearance like we see in TCW or Boba/Jango Fett.

    We know that Boba did terror jobs but I am wondering if we know if Jango did also?

    Ruusaan (Russ) is a common female Mando name. Sabine is also a new female Mando name we have heard.

    Edit: Speaking of Sabine, I am surprised we haven't seen this posted here yet. :p
