"On April 10 [1979] ... Jeremy Bulloch had his first day on camera in scene 380, transporting Han Solo in carbonite and shooting at Luke Skywalker. 'I remember the director saying to me before we started, 'This character has to be a very cool customer. Imagine you’re walking down the street in a Western town.

Before the cameras rolled on #BobaFett actor Jeremy Bulloch in "Return of the Jedi" (shown top center in a candid moment circa 1982), at least three other stand-ins were on set in his place: Quentin Pierre, Roy Beck, and Jack Dearlove

As noted on various call sheets for the original film, well documented when they go up for auction by Prop Store, these actors were stand-ins for several characters and even on screen, like Quentin was one of the Bespin guards escorting Solo in Carbonite for Fett in "Empire"

It's unknown if any of them suited up for camera or lighting tests, but nice to appreciate their role in production history

Record-setting public sale yesterday: this "J-slot" rocket-firing #BobaFett prototype sold for $204,435 via Hake's Auctions

The front looks like a normal vintage Boba but the back of authentic and often unpainted Kenner protos are what's unique – rare "J" and less rare "L" slots

This one even had an AFA 50 VG status due to the normally longer firing stem bring broken, presumably due to testing at Kenner... yet sold after 27 bids for $18,585 more than the last previously known "J-slot" auction back in 2019, which had a higher AFA grade

#BobaFett's "Pre-Production 1" costume originally featured "Jaig" eyes, which then became ears (shown here) by the time it was shown in the 1978 San Anselmo Country Fair Day and Parade

This actually wasn't a screen used costume but it was still an important evolution that helped shape his iconic look in the early years

Happy birthday George Lucas!

These rare shots from 1978 feature the "Pre-Pro 1" (aka PP1) version of #BobaFett with Lucas in both angles at Skywalker Ranch; on the right, he is with Kenner's David Okada

At BFFC, you know attribution is important: we confirmed both photos were taken by toy designer Jim Swearingen. The left one is digitally c/o Alex Howard and the right one is digitally c/o Marcus Schröder

Note the "Jaig eyes" painted onto the helmet, which were omitted in the "Pre-Pro 2" (aka PP2) version

We touched up the sharpness, contrast, and saturation in both shots to match better
