"Concept" Boba Fett

Late 1977 - Early 1978

This costume has 2 sub-variants:

  • "McQuarrie Concept" Boba Fett
  • "McQuarrie/Johnston Concept" Boba Fett

The Ralph McQuarrie Concept Fett evolved the "supertrooper" character in early drafts of "The Empire Strikes Back" into the more unique character of Boba Fett. Ralph McQuarrie contributed several concept sketches (circa 1977) and paintings of Boba Fett (wearing a Western-style brown poncho) as well as his ship, Slave I (circa mid 1978). One variant of McQuarrie's version is a red triangle pointing down on the helmet above the visor, which you can often see in McQuarrie Fett collectibles. Joe Johnston also evolved the design of this look and the two sometimes share a credit for Fett's evolution in this stage.

This costume is similar but not the same as his "prototype" armor.
