This is the (right) stuff of dreams! Many of us owe this individual much gratitude for hours of entertainment. I pulled the prototype Falcon image for two reasons, it’s awesome, AND it is a photo that I have personally never seen before.
According to RebleScum.net, an AFA graded Rocket Fett Prototype was stolen from Rebelscum owner Phillip Wise’s Star Wars museum. If you run in the big-kid collector’s crowd, be on the lookout for this piece.
This is a pretty cool video. It’s nothing new. It’s been around forever but it is always fun to revisit. Like millions of other kids from the 70’s, my first introduction to Boba Fett was the best part of the overly maligned ‘Holiday Special’. It was the most memorable part of the show.

Many have seen the early Ralph McQuarrie sketches of Boba Fett sporting the all-white helmet and armor. What you haven’t seen is the original white Fett costume in action. A videotape was rolling to capture “proto Fett’s” reveal to Lucas and company at the filmmaker’s home on June 28, 1978. In the video, sound designer Ben Burtt “hosts” Fett’s reveal, describing the different weapons, functions, and characteristics of the costume (worn by Empire’s assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham for the test).
