Good question. As the former LMO, I certainly see your point, but . . ..

if Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Boushh Disguise is acceptable what other then the mando/Jedi hate is wrong with the costume?


It's the same argument for the Han & Luke Stormtrooper costumes.

Stormtroopers= bad guys. It's evident through the films that these are on the opposing side of our Heroes.

The only two people wearing Mandalorian armor on the screen are working against the Heroes, so . . . they're slotted in the "bad guy" category.

Whereas Boushh with Leia? We never see the actual character Boushh in the film other than being worn my Leia, so that costume has no prior history on screen.

Make sense?

there are a few makers out there...



Just keep in mind that animated mando armor is different than realistic (movie) mando armor... just like animated clone armor is different than realistic (movie) clone armor.

I agree, if anyone was thinking of doing Obi in his mando disguise then it should be done using animated mando armour and not just normal movie fett style armour as the two armour styles are different.

Since season 5 ended some time ago, is there any movement on this issue of Obi Wan in Mando disguise? I know I would love to have someone here do it.

Luke in stormtrooper would be helmetless to but that is not approvable either. By all means make the costume and have fun, but I agree it does not appear to be a Rebel Legion costume.
