"Pre-Pro" Boba Fett

Mid 1978

This costume has 5 sub-variants:

  • "Pre-Pro #1" Boba Fett
  • "Pre-Pro #2" Boba Fett
  • "Pre-Pro #3" Boba Fett
  • "Promo #1" Boba Fett
  • "Promo #2" Boba Fett

After the all-white prototype, we got a very colorful variant that would evolve into looks for "Empire" and "Jedi." Three sub-variants with this look.

The red and yellow gauntlet aesthetic is sometimes referred to as the "ketchup and mustard" look.

"Pre-Pro #1" Boba Fett

Mid 1978

"Pre-Production #1" (PP1) Boba Fett (Mid 1978)

It's believed that Joe Johnston painted this version, using the "Concept" / Supertrooper costume as the base. The jetpack was converted from the White Prototype / Supertrooper costume.

This costume was worn by Duwayne Dunham at the 1978 San Anselmo Community Fair and Parade, which is Boba Fett's first public appearance.
