This group is for people who notice canononical contradictions within popular sci-fi and fantasy franchises and wish to discuss them in a safe, TROLL FREE, environment.
Copied from a post I did on my mod page in response to a fan who felt the death watch armor is not canon. I figured I should post it here too for all of you to consider.
The closest images of death watch are from the mandolarian civil war 10 years before the clone wars, in which the true mandolarians wore this armor and the death watch, a splinter group opposed to the governments new ideals, wore another style. So consider this please. The true mandolarian government defeated the death watch, although there leader and all of there true mando warriors were killed besides Jango Fett. The death watch have all been killed. In an effort to forget about that bloody conflict and the death watch the also made sure to destroy any remaining death watch armor as that is yet another reminder of the great loss of so many mandalorians in the civil war including Jaster Mereel who was the Mand'alor before and during the civil war and lead the true Mandalorian faction.
Now years later as the pacifist like the duchess manage to come to power on the promise of a long peaceful existence as many mandolarians might feel after seeing so many of there friends and families and all of there warriors killed during that bloody civil war and this small secret movement of existing death watch are quietly recruiting, regrouping and rearming themselves as they wait for the opportunity to retake there home world what armor are they gonna find plenty of on there home world?
True Mandolarian armor because that was the standard armor of the government and the Mand'alor leader before and after the civil war.
