Can't find anything definitive about these. Even the fact that they are wookiee braids and not padawan braids has eluded me. Where and why did he get these? The only other Mandalorian I've noticed wearing them is Jodo Kast and he pretends he is Fett. So just what is the skinny on the braids?220.127.116.11 14:20, April 28, 2011 (UTC)
Fan speculation is forbidden, but I'm not making assumptions about how he may have hunted down Wookiees (for sport, as bounties, etc.) I'm thinking from a character design point-of-view. The costume of Boba Fett was designed to contain braids of Wookiee scalps. Wookiees had already been portrayed as being among the fiercest warriors in the Galaxy. Putting Wookiee scalps on Fett's armor is designed to demonstrate that he is as good (or better) than your average Wookiee warrior. Compare it to Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation. If the writers needed to demonstrate that a character was powerful (like Lore, or the Angosian super-soldier, or the Borg), they had him beat up or otherwise defeat Worf, because they already established Worf was a super-powerful warrior that can't be defeated by any normal person. In Star Wars, you start by showing Chewbacca, and then show someone with someone who scalped Chewie's brethren. So not fan speculation in terms of stories, but interpretation of character design.

Sorry. I did not mean this message for you, but for the IP who said that "the imagination just runs wild".—TK-999(Rise of the Empire) 14:22, April 29, 2011 (UTC)
Exactly! I simply made a comment about the lack of content for this item and how I liked it that way. How did you ever get fanon speculation out of that?
In the "Hut Gambit" of the "Han Solo Trilogy", Fett meets Terenzoa and is described as having two wookie scalps on his Mandalorian armor, one black and one white. Darth Pippen 18:34, May 19, 2011 (UTC) Darth Pippen
