    <<This is what is to become of the Mandalorians. They will become the Galaxies defenders. Mandalorians have been the bad guys for way to long. If the Empire were to go bad again most would agree that it would be a dumb idea, because their is really no place to go in story line ideas. No, I think the Mandalorians will remain the good guys. Helping the GFFA against their enemies in future stories.


    " the mercs and the protectors form up to push the Vong out of the system. "

    Boba Fett didn't start a new Mandalorian merc group, Mandalorian. Boba Fett rejoined the protectors after Fenn's death. He now leads these Mandalorians, and like I said above they were only merc for a while. Even then it was under a condition.>>

    That really doesnt sound like a bad idea. I hope you're right Mane. Wherever Fett were to take the Mandalorians i'd no doubt be on their side, but i like the idea of the Mandalorians being galaxy protectors.

    Of course I'm right, it's all in the article.

    Well, there are certainly more Mandalorian stories to come in the future and from things Abel has said, they'll be promising.

    What would you like to learn about?

    I personally would like to know more about that Combat Trainer to which the Mandalorian skull is in reverance to.

    If I site where I got it from, it should be ok. I will check with the mods.

    And it may not be done for a long time, because it will take a while.

    that Mandalorian skull is really a bantha skull... Although I would like to learn the story behind it. Why is it used at all?

    i had a magazine that had alot of information about Boba Fett and the Mandalorians... but i can't find the blasted thing!

    The Bantha Skull theory has been erased, said only to be a false rumor.

    The Mandalorian Symbol is really the skull of a Mythosaur. A huge beast that once inhabited Mandalore, before Mandalore the first destroyed them all.

    <<The Mandalorian Symbol is really the skull of a Mythosaur. A huge beast that once inhabited Mandalore, before Mandalore the first destroyed them all.>>

    This is what the article says:

    The traditional Mandalorian crest, frequently mistaken for a Bantha Skull, bears a striking resemblance to the skull of a male mythosaur. But in truth, the symbol was actually adopted in reverence to a legendary Mandalorian combat-training master.

    My answer: Its purpose is not to reflect on the skull and the mythosaur's history, but on the skulls relation to the past combat-training master.

    Fenn Shysha, i'd sure like to know more about him. I wanna know where i can find information on Feskitt Bob and Alfreda Goot. But i imagine that more information on Spar is to come.

    I am sorely behind on the times, then... the magazine I had, dedicated to Boba Fett and his past, had stated it was a Bantha Skull. Let me guess; Star Wars Insider cleared alot of that up?

    I've tried out the Republic Commando demo for PC and i have to say, the AI wasnt as smart as it was in the XBOX demo. I overall prefer the XBOX though...mainly for the controls and the fact that the XBOX wont lag as much as my computer will.

    Do any of you fellows own a suit of custom Mandalorian armor? If so can you post some pics?

    OR

    Do any of you fellows plan on making a custom suit? If so explain what your ideal custom suit would look like.

    I myself have plans to eventually make one, but lack of funds is hindering the development.

    hello, Zedd :)

    I am actually planning to make some Mandalorian armor for myself. I am thinking of a cross-draw holster, similar to that of Doc Holliday in the movie Tombstone. I have 12 different color schemes that I can use, as well.
    I found a nice place to get ideas on custom armor designs, as well. Im a member, myself, but I have no pictures up....

    mandalorianwarriors.com

    excellent place to gain ideas, though if you want actual help in creating your armor, the best place to go would be The Dented Helmet
    Excellent place to gain information and such. It even has a place where you can buy items and such from users. :)

    When i move into my new house and after i've got a job, im gonna work on my own personal Mandalorian armor.

    I like the fact that more and more people are now working on custom Mandalorian armor as opposed to just Fett armor. I think Bartlett took the title on that so we should probably all move on lol :p

    The first thing i want to make is the mask of Mandalore.

    which has proven difficult to come buy in the real world :(
