Meet Boba Fett - original footage of the prototype white Fett costume White-10


Thought I'd post this up for those who haven't seen this short film about the original prototype Fett costume.
Was the first time I'd seen this today too Very Happy great how they show all the functions and LOL at the beach towel.

Great video, thanks for sharing!

I think they did a good job giving Boba Fett some paint in the final version. Otherwise he might have looked like some sort of Stormtrooper.

And first time I see that sensor 'thing' on his helmet in action.

Great vintage footage, thanks for the vid.
Duwayne Dunham was the first to wear the suit.
I always thought it was Alan Harris to be the first to wear the suit for the test fitting.

I've always thought that everyone involved with the creation of Fett really put their hearts into it.

Were they disappointed with how little he was used in the movies?

There's more good pics here: Boba Fett prototype costume showing the further stages of the costume design and fitting following the decision to move away from the all-white 'supertrooper' costume to more of the bounty hunter character we know today.

More info here about Dunham and Harris + the Holiday Special Fett: http://www.wattographs.com/TheDefinitiveFett.aspx

I didn't know the Dunham footage was shot at the back of George Lucas's house.
