I posted this question over on the Mercs board to get ideas rolling for the new Mandalorian characters that will be shown in the Clone Wars season 2.
Since these characters are Mandalorians in general, I thought I'd pose the subject here to get some serious discussion going on what will and won't be acceptable should this costume be considered for canon admittance into the 501st.
To start, here are a few screen caps from the season 2 preview.
Here's what we know so far: (not relying on the holo-image, but on the closeup and the "hero" walk of the four together...)
OVERALL: Blue and grey colors with a touch of white for the "commander"
HELMET: Commander: Grey overall with blue upper cheeks.
white triple striping from the center of the brow
trooper: grey overall with blue mandables
NO RF STALK ON ANY BUCKET
ARMOR: blue flight suit with grey armor plating
It's hard to tell, but it looks like the commander has heavy thigh plating and the troops do not.
Commander: shoulder cape similar in style to Boba, but on the right shoulder.
WEAPONRY: No discernible BFG, but all appear to have Jango-style double blasters from the holsters on the thighs.
OTHER CHARACTERISTICS: No view is available yet of the lower legs below the knees, but other than the above-mentioned things, the rest of the armor appears to be standard Super Commando armor.
Granted, I'm not the final say on what will or won't be kosher for this character. I would just like to open this up for ideas and thoughts on what it would take to accurately represent these characters.
