I suppose, after the sidebar, the short answer is:

Yes, that armor could have been painted yellow as it's primary color at some point. We have never seen any Protectors (of any stripe) wearing yellow armor, though. Only green. I'd call that the primer coat. There are other possible explanations, but that's the simplest.

As a costuming club, there has to be a point where you find a line you don't cross because to do so would a) cause people to get uterly confused as to what is and isn't right, making them lose interest in ever trying to achieve a CRL-passable costume, or b) you piss people off to the point of them thinking we are elite-ist in our thinking that only a select few will ever reach "our" standards.

Enh. Not even talking about standards. This is a nomencalture argument. *heh* Like how a Biker Scout wouldn't get passed as a Stormtrooper, it's kinda important to know if Journeyman Protectors and Mandalorian Protectors are the same group or not, have the same uniform or not, whether that's changed over time or not... Like the Magma Trooper issue I mentioned above. Nailing down what's so can sometimes get murky when dealing wiht non-film sources. All the comics and novels and magazine articles are up to the author's/artist's interpretation. We can't just point to a movie still photo and say "see?".

Yeah. I said my piece (boy howdy, did I). Back to showing off our green armor. :P

I'd have to agree with Slade's thoughts. I'd even go so far as to say that perhaps green was a JP thing adopted later by the MP's as a way to honor the JP's who helped found them. Again just my supposition.

This thread is getting dangerously close to being locked. Several have asked for it to stop and it hasn't so now, Im ordering it to stop. I am all for this discussion and quite enjoy it to be honest but, this is not the place for it! Take it to a Keldabe Lounge thread please.

To save the info already discussed, is it possible for a mod to split this topic and put all discussion/non--topic-relevant posts in a new thread in the Lounge? I know it's a big task, however...it would certainly clean this one up and get it back to the topic at hand, saving us from having to wade through tons of stuff not needed in this thread.

I only asked about the yellow because isn't this to determine what the JPs look like? 

I offered up Boba's yellow because maybe he had other than green while as a JP, maybe it's a rank thing. 



But I do see how you would want some of the posts moved.

Well, that's all I'm saying. I'm all for discussing what we've each seen where and coming up with a reasonable set of standards for JP/MP's to follow, like color variations in comics vs. descriptions in novels. In the end, it's all up to the Brigadier and the Approval Team to decide what will and won't be accepted for this specific sub-group.

Until then, I'd rather not have to surf through a doctoral thesis of opinion to get to one viable nugget of information. :)

Agreed. What this thread needs is more pictures.

Okay, I split out the discussion regarding the differences or similarities of Mandalorian and Journeyman Protectors. For now, I'm going to suggest not worrying about whether or not they're the same or separate. We'll try to keep this discussion to the armor colors and configuration of the Mandalorian Protectors.

I left a few posts here because of information relevant to the color discussion.
