*I don’t really have a question here but I thought I would share a thought I had today to get input*
I am almost done reading the book series "The Bounty Hunter Wars"(great read [FONT=Verdana]fyi[/FONT]) and in the series it is mentioned numerous times that Boba has a replacement set Mandalorian armor on different worlds he is know to visit and stowed in [FONT=Verdana]Slave 1[/FONT].Case in point on Tatoonie after his recovery from the Sarlacc he put on a replacement suit(not helmet).And after he and Bossk captured the renegade stromtrooper(helmet replaced). From what I understand his color scheme stays the same. This information is form books that "George" approved to be based on a character he created.
The question then came to me was "Why a Boba Fett with a helmet that has no dent in it isn’t acceptable to the 501st ...yet?"
Is it to be understood that all the replacement suits he stowed had helmets with dents in them. From what I have read the membership guidelines mention that the "fett" approval is based on the movies looks. But it seems to be expanding out with the Animated Fett being accepted (I think?) as well other Expanded Universe characters from the books and games.
Could the argument be made if someone wanted to make a "clean looking" or non standard looking Fett that this is Boba right after an encounter as mentioned in one of the many books he is is. Not to mention the different support weapons that are mentioned in the books as well.
I do realize that there has to be a "end" to set some sort of standards so that there are acceptable looks for anyone Trooping as Boba when representing the 501st original intentions of spreading joy to Star Wars fans. And I do understand the the "dent" is what makes Boba.
Please don’t read into this as I am saying there needs to be changes but I just thought it might make for a interesting friendly discussion as to why the "look" of Boba in the books is not accepted. That is if it is not accepted???
