"Prototype" Boba Fett

Mid 1978

This "supertrooper" costume was worn by Duwayne Dunham in the 1978 screen test with Ben Burtt. The demo also involved George Lucas looking over the costume.

The red/blue arrows on the helmet above the visor are often (but not always) on Prototype Armor Boba Fett collectibles.

It's believed that six helmets in this style were originally made.

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