    Jun 29, 2013, 12:20 PM - Who is the yellow guy? #1

    While I was painting my ROTJ armor, i realized something.... who is the yellow guy? I get that Jango was silver, Boba is green, but who is the yellow guy?
    Did Jango's armor go to another member and then was passed on to Boba? Just a question I was wondering, what do you think?

    Fair enough, I just thought it might be more fun to imagine another Fett in the lineage of the armor!

    Or maybe since Boba does "fly", he used aircraft primer for the same reason they use it in aircrafts? lol
    Or is the yellow primer made to stick to metal?

    I feel when ILM produced the armour it was to make people think it's real metal so that's the silver sorted then the yellow is the primer then the green for the fett colour...

    I was going by Rafalfett's templates and the ROTJ screen captures when i painted my ROTJ. Are you refering to the right chest piece not having yellow? I know that in every piece i painted there is yellow...

    except the diamond i suppose... and helmet

    Do you not remember which Boba Fett armor came first on screen before The Empire Strikes Back? The animated version in the Holiday Special with the yellow chest armor.

    I know that we Boba costumers use zinc chromate as our yellow, but have never heard of this being used as aircraft primer. Learn something new every day, thanks!

    The way I always looked at it was that (in pretend galaxy far far away) the armor was painted, used, repainted, used, repainted and so on so there were many layers of paint and hence the multiple colors showing through.

    just my 10 year old imagination in 1982

    Well if you look at Star Wars historically, it seems each squad or division of Mandalorians has its own paint scheme, kinda like militaries do.

    The Deathwatch have that paint scheme which looks similar to Jango's AOTC armor, so maybe the "Journeymen Protectors" that Fett was supposedly associated with in some of the old lore had that chest/shoulder scheme to identify each other easy.

    I'm MORE curious how a Fett movie will explain the different gauntlets and Jetpack, if at all. As big of a fan as I am of the ROTJ/Scheme, I would STILL go all fanboy if the opening scene of Episode 7 has Fett getting out of the pit and making his was to his second set of armor that he had stashed on Tattooine. I could do without Dengar playing the part he did in that though.

    I agree 110%. If any of the other bounty hunters were to save Fett and play a major role in 7, I want it to be Bossk.

    I think you've got it right. That's how I always saw it too. Iirc, the original idea was also that his armor was pieced together and customized by him. I personally never liked the idea that he was ever formally a "Mandalorian", or had much to do with them at all, and much preferred the notion that he was just a bada$$ mercenary that wore armor he picked up and customized over the course of his travels.

    The Patton Oswalt clip was awesome, I can't believe he did that in one take. His nerd cred is off the charts now.
