"Pre-Pro #2" Boba Fett
"Pre-Pro #2" (PP2) Boba Fett (Mid 1978)
This armor was later used for "The Empire Strikes Back" and a Kenner photo shoot, which is why the vintage action figure has red and yellow gauntlets.
It's believed that Mario Maala painted the PP2 helmet/armor and Sandy Dhuyvetter worked on the costume.
The original prop was stolen and is in a private collection.
Used for publicity photos, but not for any film
Left and right "ears" are nearly the same color, unlike PP3
