Don't know about the steam, but it wasn't to be Boba Fett at the time, it was to be a team of Super Commandos, ...Stormtroopers.
Star Wars Chronicles by Deborah Fine, Ebay or Amazon. Not cheap though.
Actually they just re-released that chronicles book, you can get it on Amazon.com for like $100. And while that doens't sound cheap for a book consider that I have seen old copies of that book go for around $400. And it is the holy grail of fett pics.
I took a look at it and it says it only covers the prequals
Star Wars Chronicles for the OT:
Regarding why Fett's costume was all white during intial development:
"At Lucasfilm, Boba Fett was designed by Joe Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie. At an early production stage of The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett's costume had been intended for a squad of supercommandos from the Mandalore system. The troops' white-armored suits were to have been equipped with numerous built-in weapons, including wrist lasers, flying backpacks, and rocket darts. In an interview for Star Wars:The Annotated Screenplays, Joe Johnston recalled, " I designed the final version of Boba Fett. Ralph and I both worked on preliminary designs, and we traded ideas back and forth. Originally, Boba Fett was part of a force we called Super Troopers, and they were these really high-tech fighting units, and they all looked alike. That eventually evolved into a single bounty hunter."
Because there are so few images of the all-white Fett, the costume has been romanticized. While it is unclear exactly what dents on the suit, it is basically an unpainted prepro 1/prepro 3 suit with a different cape.
That hoth fett just plain rocks.I have always liked that look, and I love that the armor,..it is not overly thick.Looks nice and streamlined.
Great Job on it!!!!
I can't ever get enough of the "Original Fett" photos, it's what drew me into TDH and the 501st.
The original pictures are amazing.
I am about to start my white pre-production helmet, so will start a thread this month with some pics
I look forward to seeing it, good luck.
