Today we`re taking a examine the maximum critical bits of the brand new episode of The Mandalorian. The Disney+ display launched Season 2, Episode 6 on December 4, 2020, with the capability to supply a few vastly critical plot points. As it became out, not anything that befell withinside the display mattered NEARLY as lots as what we discovered approximately Boba Fett's armor. NOTE: This first photo in this newsletter is from an in advance episode – underneath that, it is complete of spoilers.

The man, the armor

In this episode we now no longer handiest see Boba Fett again, we listen him speak. Speaking with Din Djarin (The Mandalorian), Boba Fett explains who he's and why he believes he is entitled to the armor. The armor, he says, became handed down from his father. This episode exhibits that Jango Fett became a Foundling – and indicates that he fought along different Mandalorians a few years ago.

The rocket percent rocket

Boba Fett's armor's rocket can break a troop service starship. We noticed in an in advance episode that his rocket percent is able to firing a rocket-propelled explosive that could break a land vehicle – now we recognize it is able to firing an explosive it really is lots greater big than that. AND lots longer-range.

ABOVE: At the top of this put up you will see Cobb Vanth, the primary character to seem carrying Boba Fett's armor in The Mandalorian. Notice the form and length of the rocket withinside the rocket percent.

It became handiest on this episode of The Mandalorian that we learn* that Boba Fett's armor is made (as a minimum partially) with Beskar.

*This episode's inclusion of Beskar in Boba Fett's armor qualifies as a retcon. We've handiest ever heard that the armor became made of "durasteel" before – in a 2018 model of Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, New Edition.

In The Mandalorian Season 2, Episode 5, we see that natural Beskar pike deflect a lightsaber.

Where's the relaxation?

We're additionally searching ahead to identifying whether or not Boba Fett will searching for out extra bits of armor to cowl the relaxation of his body – due to the fact this isn't always the whole set. The Mandalorian additionally has a extraordinary design/set of armor, in all likelihood due in element to the less-than-best mobility supplied with the aid of using the unique Boba Fett armor.
