So here is a question... With the addition of  Mandalorian Protectors in Star Wars Rebels... will the official logo for this brigade be changing to this, or what is the plan here?

Logical answer that allows people to keep their kit as it is and a Protector would be no, it wouldn't change.
Additionally the canon pilots do not fit this BRL either, so as its for the pilot unit in a canon fashion BRL only.

Perfect. I don't think my stencil game is on par yet for adding a new logo...

The logo will not be changing.  The Protector Brigade is rooted in Legends, and will remain so. The new Protectors will be part of the TCW/Rebels Canon Brigade until there is significant crossover to warrant merging the two Brigades.

Got some questions here as to a few things that have been added since way back in the day when PJ and I were working on these.

Quote
Closed-back kama may be worn. Must be same material and weathering as cape

There's no reference for this as far as I'm aware, and I'm pretty aware when it comes to protectors. Something new?

Quote
Boot-Wraps: Weathered fabric strips may be used as boot wraps.

Again, reference?

Quote
Trophies: No less than 2, no more than 4.  Trophies may include: Wookiee scalps, damaged lightsabers, Death Watch Chest Diamonds.  Additional trophies may be used at discretion of the Brigadier.

Just to clarify, IF you have trophies, you MUST have at least two. BUT, if you chose not to have trophies, you can not have any at all. Correct?

Quote
All plates should be weathered liberally with scratches, paint flaking, and dings.

What about kits like mine that are the Marvel Comic style that don't have weathering?

I'm probably wrong vod, but I'm thinking the Kama and boot wraps is based on mythos boba

I'd say you're right on that one


Cape, leg wraps, knife, trophies Example

There will be clarification to come on the animated protector. If you were to make changes to your kit prior to official amendments and updates, I would advise you stay within the source material- specifically marvel comics in your case.
The Mythos gear additions were made during the time when the amendments to the BRL were made and  the marvel comics version of thr MP was not taken into consideration as contradicting the existing BRL. I will say that the marvel version of the MP (Spar) did have wookiee scalps in some cases, so I may pencil those to your to-do list of brigade upgrades, but I will need to discuss this further. The weathering will likely not be required of course, but I will clarify here shortly. This is now a priority for me.

I will keep an eye on this and make changes should they be needed.

The changes wouldn't have an effect the current protectors.

Ok.

Thanks, Dha.

Ok, so here's the problem as I see it. The Mythos kit would NOT be a MP kit. It's an alternate Boba kit. There is a difference since Boba's kit has elements that an MP would not have. The Mythos kit would be a "what-if" after he either was or wasn't an MP (depending on what history if any is ever decided on that front).

 The whole thing is a trainwreck mismatch of bits. Prepro 1 helmet (as per the jaig eyes), SE gauntlets (both red) but with an ESB flame thrower, ankle knife, saber trophies, RotJ ammo pouches, an added leather satchel pouch on his left side, no big pouches...the list goes on. That's one that should stand on its own and not be included here for setting BRLs.

 We had an example of something similar when we were writing all this up and researching it the first time around. The Fenn Shysa action figure. It's a straight up repaint of Jango and isn't even close to the original visual reference. Because of that, we didn't include the inaccuracies as part of the requirements. That kit needs to be moved to the Boba section for someone who want to replicate it exactly, but not here.
