Now for your daily dose of “damn that’s fucking rad:” an Airsoft hobbyist who makes Mandalorian inspired armor for the Airsoft community has now partnered with Surefire, SOG Knives & Tools, AR500 Armor, Team Wendy , Armasight, Inc., Wilcox Industries Corp., and TEA Headsets to make legitimate ballistic versions of his designs.
In all seriousness, it’s great that we are at the point in our development as humans that we can craft Mandalorian armor not just as a cosplay getup but as something any one of us can dust off, pull from the closet and don when the proverbial shit hits the fan. Believe me, in the wasteland of the post apocalypse, there is nothing more useful than an intimidating visage. Just don’t try to bring this on your next deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan, because I don’t think your CO is going to let you take this out on patrol. If only because you’d be the most instantly respected galactic badass of your unit.
