(Remake of a post on the temp boards) The fact that Mandos are supposedly fearsome is a bit odd, considering that they have a remarkable track record : they lost, and badly, every single war they have been into. (You would suppose that for a warrior race that focus all it's energies on war, they would win one at some point....) But, it's not really surprising. After all, the first Mando of the SW universe, Boba, managed to look awesome and badass, while, as Cracked pointed out, he fired once during the OT. He managed to trap Luke for 4 seconds before being owned by a blind guy. Actually, it's basically on the level of B1 battledroid efficiency.
