What and why is the reason that made you love mandalorians?

I'd have to say because of there sense of family, which co-exists with there violence. It is like a life that I would want to live. The parts of giving people a chance, going after bounties, and other suff.

What the hlel are you talking about Laney??? Is violence something cool to you? The guy who constantly talking about being picked on. Ah, I think that's it. You want to put violence on others because your constantly being picked on.

I wouldn't say that violence is a good reason to like Mandos, but there is a great bond that comes from fighting/struggling with someone at your back.

Seems to me he was focusing on the opposite.  Laney admits that yes, there is violence in their lives...but it's everything else besides the violence that really draws him.

First of all I like their armors and all of their combet abilitys.
and mostly their some kind of Philosophy to grow through combat and training.
"Mandalorians believe confrontation is required for growth, on the personal as well as the cultural level. War is the Mandalorian way of life."-Jedi Master Gnost-Dural
However I do not want to be a mandalorian in real life, in real life they are cold-blooded murderers .

I became a fan because of the armor from watching the older movies and then from the subsequent books and comics about fett during the 90's. and then it was reinvigerated when I played Republic Commando and then I read the Karen Traviss books that helped continue my intrest in the madalorian Spirit and Family.

Because they are badass.   I could go into detail about how I like the family values they have and how they have honor that has lasted through the millennia,  but what is comes down to is that they are just plain BAMFs

when you look up badass in the dictionary the first thing you see is a picture of Boba Fett.

Yes. That is what I'm saying. But, that was a good theroy there, Carnivore. (it's hard to not to type Sean every time.  :ouch: )

I think he wants to be both.

I prefered Boba. Becuase he always had a mask on.

For me it was a mixture of Boba and the armour itself.  The armour was cool, but it was nothing without the aura of menace that Boba gave it in ESB and a somewhat in RoTJ. 

But that worked to imbue that style of armour with his...attitude.  So every mandalorian has inherited a little bit of the screen presence of ESB's Boba Fett.

Now it is a phenomenon on its own.  It's like the red, yellow and black of a coral snake...or the distinctive sound of a rattler, or that flattening hood of a cobra...it means...backoff di'kut.  I'm a shabla bad-shebs motherfrakker and I will ruin your world if you cross me.

I'm all that and a whole lot more. This is one of those times that when someone starts talking like "violence is cool" I put my myself in the conversation whether they like it or not. When you say something like "I'd have to say because of there sense of family, which co-exists with there violence. It is like a life that I would want to live." I take that as I wanna live a life of violence. If you don't mean it like that you need to clarify. Especially since someone like me who actually lives that lifestyle knows what that life is like.

As for the original question, Boba is cool, the armor is cooler. Jango showed us what a Mando can really do though.

Actually...no.  Not since the 70s.   But I know that trashy re-make show uses the term ''frak.  In truth I originally wrote it to be...well...what it was supposed to be, but I noted that it wouldn't get filtered out as one word...so I figured I'd stick with a phoenetic simulation...to let you know what was intended.

Right. If you still need it, I like the way they can have such a secure way of living even with violence being part of there culture. It's more intriuging and interesting than, lets say the Jedi. And my life. We have no violence, but we still seem to have massive chasms opening and closing every five seconds (Or six, I forget). So, thats why. I don't want to live with killing someone I don't know every day. I like them because they have familes that are tight even with violence being a daily part of life.

And of course the armour.

That makes more sense Laney, thank you.
