Three "holy grail" Kenner prototypes, the original Prototype costume blaster, and much more were on display at Rancho Obi-Wan's "#BobaFett to Bo-Katan: The Evolution of the Mandalorians Exhibit" at #StarWars Celebration 2022 last month.

There's still time to order their convention exclusive 27 card set featuring annotated images: https://bobafett.club/91lam (ends June 17 at 11:55pm Pacific)

You can also become a member of Rancho Obi-Wan and you can take a tour of their incredible museum in Petaluma, California.

Not shown here, but the final display was a heartfelt memorial to Jeremy Bulloch, the late actor who originally played Boba Fett in "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi." They also had the stunt "Return of the Jedi" jetpack on display, used for the shots of him crashing into the barge (by stuntmen Glenn Randall Jr. and/or Dickey Beer).

Fun fact: Rancho told us that our website's Boba Fett collectible database has come in handy from time to time for them, which is awesome. Check it out: https://bobafett.com/bounty/

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

"Although #BobaFett is a very experienced bounty hunter, he's not experienced at running a criminal syndicate or managing forces. He's not normally a newcomer. He's an expert as we see him in most areas. But in this case, he's trying to transition to another position." – Jon Favreau

"We'll see a lot more of (Boba's) true character in this season. And you'll definitely see him have to turn 'barbarian mode.'" – Robert Rodriguez

"Johnston is #BobaFett's original conceptual designer. He has also been referred to as the 'father' of Boba Fett. Joe designed the colors and helmet for Boba. John Mollo had designed the original suit as the super trooper army of millions, but the production couldn't afford it for 'Empire Strikes Back.' Therefore, Joe made Boba a singular character with the paint job he did on him, including the damaged suit and helmet." – Joe Johnston's website (now offline, quote saved on bobafett.com)

On this day in 1999, "Enemy of the Empire" #1 was released featuring an epic tale involving #BobaFett and #DarthVader

In the "legends" mini-series, Fett got his famous helmet dent from a battle with Vader – before the "canon" Cad Bane storyline retconned that all

How long have you been a #BobaFett fan?

#TheMandalorian Chapter 14 director Robert Rodriguez revealed he's an old school Boba Fett fan, going back to before "The Empire Strikes Back," as noted in this interview for "Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian - Making of Season 2" on Disney+

Originally known for innovative independent films like El Mariachi, Rodriguez now frequently turns out blockbusters hits like Sin City and Spy Kids; he's also an executive producer for the upcoming #TheBookOfBobaFett series starting next December

"Pitted and pocked, as if with some kind of acid. ... The Mandalorians knew how to make armor, didn't they. ... 'Been through hell and back.'"

"[A]ll-too-familiar Mandalorian armor. 'Is it even real Mandalorian armor? Looks like something hammered out on a swindler's forge.'"

Descriptions of #BobaFett's post-Sarlacc armor worn by #CobbVanth, now seen in Chapter 9 (Season 2 Episode 1) of #TheMandalorian, here as originally written in vague yet "familiar" terms in #StarWars: Aftermath (2015) and #StarWars: Aftermath: Empire's End (2017) respectively by Chuck Wendig.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of "The Empire Strikes Back," Hot Toys is re-releasing its 1/6 scale "Deluxe" #BobaFett, originally out in 2018.

With retro style packaging this time around (not yet shown in the marketing imagery released yesterday), this one is expected to arrive Q1 or Q2 2021. The fine print on these images also suggests there may be other minor differences to come.

The 2018 one retailed for $267 so this 2021 one may be similarly priced, if not higher.

Helmet nod to Diamond J. Terrence for spotting the difference in the 2018 product description and the 2021 re-pack description.

Shout out by Daisy "Skye" Johnson on the most recent episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 5 Episode 7), "Together Or Not At All." Part of the storyline sort of references "The Empire Strikes Back." The ship they use later also has some Boba Fett inspired colors.

It's believed the photos were taken by Roy Frankenfield, with the flame and space illustration effect added later.

Watch the entire interview: https://youtu.be/hDtHaWSrwpA

The "Pre-Production #2" Fett costume dates back to mid-1978 when the figure had slightly different details like color nuances, brown gloves with circle patterns, and a gauntlet flamethrower, which some fans also saw on the Kenner action figure cardback before his theatrical debut in "The Empire Strikes Back."

"Lando Glared First..." by DouggieDoo

"This is from one of my favorite scenes of the Empire Strikes Back. On Cloud City, Vader is torturing Han from behind closed doors, and hearing the screams outside, Lando and Fett are waiting for Vader to come out. Lando, obviously not happy about what's happening to Han, stares daggers at Fett. I can only imagine Boba's face as his helmet turns slightly to face Lando..." -- Douggie

To touch up the film, Lucas spent $2.5 million ($3.7m with inflation) and ended up earning a half billion dollars when you tally U.S, worldwide, and rental gross.

This Amazon exclusive "Empire" Slave I from 2013 originally retailed for $70 and dipped as low as $35 that holiday season. It's now common to find for 3x or more retail price in mint condition.

The ship was a re-paint of an earlier "The Clone Wars" Slave I from 2010 and the Han Solo in Carbonite was a re-paint of the "The Saga Collection" version from 2006. A #BobaFett figure was not included in the box. "The Vintage Collection" intentionally had packaging to resemble the original look from 1980 with some slight changes.

#MandalorianMonday: This 1980 "Empire" #BobaFett trading card was unique in listing his age as 43 years old. (His canonical age has since been revised.)

This page comes from the 548-page book, "#StarWars: The Empire Strikes Back: The Original Topps Trading Card Series," released earlier this year.

The "The Empire Strikes Back" and "#StarWars Saga - I.Q. Test" paper cups by Dixie featured #BobaFett and his ship, Slave I, back in 1981 and 1982 respectively. Boba Fett also appeared on some of the packaging, as well as on the "Bounty Hunters" cup in the "Return of the Jedi" set.

Photos by Erica aka wookiee_cookiee, shared with us on our public photo group on Flickr.

In the 80's, Dixie was a product of the American Can Company. The brand is now owned by Georgia-Pacific.

Bryan Curtis spent three solid years making the childhood dream of being #BobaFett into a reality. His "Empire" Fett came together nicely, especially the screen-accurate blaster, complete with its bronze receiver, scope, tube, stock, and greeblies.

All of the paint is done by our good friend Ponteworks. Contact him on Facebook (http://j.mp/1QkpIc2) to get in the queue.

#MandalorianMonday: This rare pre-production studio shot of #BobaFett stands apart with the absence of armor, a kneepad, and part of the jetpack.

Helmet nod to Alex Dacrates Howard in the #StarWars Rare Vintage Photos group on Facebook for sharing this.

According to Alex, this is a photographer named Kevin Baxter posing in the touring costume used to promote "Empire."

Helmet nod to Michael McHale for the heads up about this one.

Which bounty hunter do you think will get in Jyn Erso's way with stealing those Death Star plans in #RogueOne?

#BobaFett is only rumored to cameo, but in honor of the new trailer, we thought it would be fun to imagine it anyway. (See http://j.mp/BobaFettFilm for our play-by-play of all rumors to date.)

This scene from "#StarWars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" took place on the control deck bridge of Vader's Super Star Destroyer ("Executor") features #DarthVader, #Dengar, #IG88, #BobaFett, #Bossk, and #4LOM.

#ThrowbackThursday: Back in 2011, we saw #BobaFett on the cover of the re-released novelization for "The Empire Strikes Back" by Donald F. Glut.

If this artwork looks familiar, you may recognize it from the first DVD release of "Empire" in 2004. That release was bittersweet for some fans because it came with the late Jason Wingreen's original voice of Fett being dubbed over by Temuera Morrison.

Happy Birthday Ralph McQuarrie!

In honor of the late concept artist, who was born on this day in 1929, here is his art with #BobaFett in a poncho on Cloud City circa 1978. This pre-production effort eventually evolved and this -- sans poncho -- became the "he's no good to me dead" hallway scene in "The Empire Strikes Back."

Ralph passed away on March 3, 2012.

On this day in 1978, over two years before "Empire," this prelim art was made for Kenner's #BobaFett figure. Note how he appears in prototype form as the all-white supertrooper. This work is based on Joe Johnston's sketches, dated one to two months earlier.

Helmet nod to Ron Salvatore and TheSWCA.com for documenting this information and archiving this image.

In the 4th and 5th drafts of "The Empire Strikes Back," #BobaFett had a different reply to #DarthVader:

BOBA (a very tough customer): I am in no hurry, Lord Vader. My concern is that Captain Solo not be damaged. The reward from Jabba the Hutt pays double if he's alive.
