• Sideshow Collectibles Wants You to "Meet Boba Fett"

      As fans, we’ve always been captivated by the possibilities of what could have been. In this rare footage from the Star Wars archives, sound designer Ben Burtt hosts Boba Fett’s first reveal to George Lucas and company at the filmmaker’s home on June 28, 1978 for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back.




      The striking all-white prototype armor reflects the character’s initial concept as a “super trooper” before he evolved into the bounty hunter he is today. Designed by Joe Johnston, and worn by Empire‘s assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham for the test, Burtt explains ‘proto Fett’s’ unique weapons, functions, and characteristics.

      I never really cared much for the flimsy lenses either. They just seem like they're waiting to get some kind of crinkle in them. I may try your idea,

      ABS may avoid internal-cause yellowing depending on the care taken with the additives when mixing the material. Things like plasticizers and dyes and

      I thought they parodied The Dark Knight and the Joker.

      Good ep. I found the criminals' masks an interesting choice, a cross between Insane Clown Posse and Killer Klowns from Outer Space.
