"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.

There are two micro variants: initially the helmet had "eyes" (later called "Jaig eyes") and then they were painted over to have "ears," like bunny ears. The "eyes" version didn't have the kill stripes, but the "ears" one did. Neither detail was used on future iterations, e.g. PP2.

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