    "Rebel" Mandalorian?

    Is there any reason why it would be impossible to believe that a Mandalore warrior could decide that it was in his best interest to join the Rebel Alliance?

    I've been thinking about incorporating the Rebel Alliance logo into the armor somehow.

    Here's the rough design I'm working on right now.

    I haven't decided yet. I've always found that orange to be kinda 'loud' and not very practical from a "I've crashed on a hostile planet and I have to sit tight and try not to get killed or captured while waiting for extraction" point of view.

    Generally, Mandalorians sided with the Empire; they assisted in the Jedi Purge. But just because the majority sided with Imperials doesn't mean that all of them did; some could have had Rebel sympathies and joined them. After all, combat was a big thing for Mandos, and what better adversary was there than the Empire?

    Fenn Shysa joined the Rebels in the classic marvel comic series though I dont believe he changed his armor.

    I'm just thinking of adding a flaming Rebel Alliance logo to a shoulder plate at this point. As for changing armor, my armor is only STARTING at Boba Fett. I'm making serious changes including an 'enviro-pack' backpack with a hose to the helmet, visible leather straps to attach the armor and heavy jumpboots.

    Re: "Rebel" Mandalorian?

    In SWG, there is some cool looking rebel armor... Maybe you could use the color scheme from these. Also, its not shown in the pic, but they have the logo on the shoulder as well as the chest. The second one down is my personal fave, and with the weathering, its a sure shot for a reb mando.

    Re: "Rebel" Mandalorian?

    I don't see any reason why a Mando would work with the Rebels, such as Fenn Shysa previously mentioned. In fact, my Mando's backstory includes interacting with the Rebellion on a frequent basis. A Symbiotic relationship-they had something I wanted (Credits), I had something they wanted (Ships, fighters, and weapons stolen from various places). It was a relationship that worked quite well for both sides...This reminds me that I've been neglecting working on my backstory again...So if you want a rebel Mando, by all means write him right into your own saga...

    These images are from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. I just don't know if he is a Mandolorian or a Jedi?




    I don't know if this helps, but here you go!

    I don't know if this helps, but here you go!

    Just down the bottom there, in the left hand corner, the name of the sketch is "jedi general" so i'd say he is a renegade that survived order 66. But he definately has pieces of mando hardware on him, those gauntlets for starters.

    As far as mando's go, the very few left by the end of the clone wars would be taking any jobs they thought would get them the most money, they would not be involving themselves in any major political struggles, you jsut have to look at their past to see why they would opt oout of such a fight.

    There might be some out there with the veiw point of fett(from the novels) believing that the empire, while corrupt is still the legal ruler of the galaxy, and until such point that changes he will work for them.

    Re: "Rebel" Mandalorian?

    But might it be reasonable to believe that a Mandalorian might find the advantages to having the Imperial military machine busily hunting Rebels. And he might even go so far as to help them now and again. And, after a while, he may be swayed to their way of thinking and instead of just being a gun for hire, he is a true believer.

    I think we've seen precedent, with a certain someone named Solo, that people are capable of coming a long way for the right cause.

    Sure. You got Jusik Bardon who seems to have become a Mando under Kal Skirata, and Etain Tur-Mukan could possibly be construde as a Mando since she's pretty much married to Darman.

    Re: "Rebel" Mandalorian?

    Kota's armor isn't mandalorian, just similar... It actually very closely resembles some of the rebel armor from Galaxies and the Jedi armor from the new SWTOR MMORPG. As for the "rebel" mandalorian part... Mando'ade are mercenaries at heart, and by definition that means that allegiances are very easily shifted. Not to mention that mandos have no love for the Empire according to any of the cannon sources. Boba just worked for credits is all.

    Oh, and just a side note... the orange rebel flightsuit isn't intended for being downed on a planet and being forced to evade. It's intended for exo-atmospheric bailout. The bright color would, in theory aid in recovery of a pilot who had to punch out. TIE pilots in contrast would be much harder to find due to their black flightsuits. That being said, Rebel pilots can be noted wearing orange, red, grey and green flightsuits in ROTJ.
