If there's one thing I've always hated about big name Star Wars projects, it's that they always think their canon supercedes everything else before it, like it's the hippest ****ing thing since Huey Lewis. Not only am I pissed off at the complete arrogance of the people behind the Clone Wars show to just make up their own canon about the Mandalorians, and how it's like "hey assholes, there has been Mando canon that's been established before you, ever since the 1980s in fact. get with the program," they shove their fat around and it smashes into us, the little Fett/Commando/Mando fans who are just trying to have our own happy little niche in the SW galaxy.
I mean, just what the **** is happening? Did the Mandalorians all of a sudden become trendy? I always thought us Mandalorian fans were like small cult followers, like we minded our own business (except for the random Jedi bashing) and everything. Traviss was a messiah because she set up the Mandos in the modern timeline, and we all traveled off to paradise.
And then while we were laying on the beach in paradise on our beach towels, catching some rays, checking out gals or girls (whatever you prefer), some snot nosed punks with $8.00 lightsaber toys from Target came and kicked sand on us, then pointed and laughed. And we were just minding our own business!!! Because it was like every little Jedi fanboy and girl wanted a piece of the Mandos because their armour is just so ****ing cool. Do the people making this show, and whatever other piece of Jedi ass-kissing trash even understand what the Mandalorians are? Do they even care that the Mandalorians have a very unique culture, that's not all about armour and T-visors and Boba Fett? I mean, **** a doodle doo. It's just plain exploitation is what it is. It's like thinking the Chinese have only been around for the last 50 years, or that the Scots wear only kilts, or that thinking all Muslims are radical extremists. It's stereotyping and bullying.
And to think of somebody other than Karen Traviss writing about the Mandalorians, establishing them...it feels like letting a stranger into the house, one that will violate your family like some sick twisted pervert.
And the WORST part?? Mandalorians as PACIFISTS??? That's like ripping off a man's nuts off and going "ROFLMAO" like some little twit.
Anyone else feel this way, or is everybody going to gang up on me like I just muttered how there's a white elephant standing in the room?
Oh, and don't even get me started on the Mandos as Sith pawns in "The Old Republic." Grr...
