95 pages. Sketches by Joe Johnston and Nilo Rodis-Jamero.

An excerpt from page 71:

"While most of the film's costume design originated in England, Ralph McQuarrie and [Joe] Johnston designed the Boba Fett outfit at Industrial Light and Magic in California. The costume was built at EMI in London, and then shipped back to Johnston to be painted. Originally the Boba Fett costume was intended to be worn by a squad of supercommandos, troops from the Mandalore system armed with weapons built into their suits. But the costume was adapted for the Boba Fett character by aging, denting, and adding a colorful paint job to one of these suits, while keeping the wrist lasers, flying backpack, and rocket darts originally intended for the supercommandos."

NEW Facts

Distinctive Ship for an "Outsider"

"Because Boba Fett is an 'outsider,' a bounty hunter hired by Darth Vader, the design of his ship had to be distinctive enough that it would not be confused with any of the Rebel ships or those of the Imperial fleet. The original concept of the Slave I was a half-spherelike body housing the main engine parts in a fuselage attached to the ship’s front. The body later evolved into the elliptical shape used in the film." – Nilo Rodis-Jamero
