    Damaged Jetpack in SE

    HA! I just noticed in the RotJ SE, in the new scenes with Boba, they used the jetpack with vibro-ax damage BEFORE Han accidentally whacks him in the back:

    Guess they thought they wouldn't be shooting Don Bies from the back!

    Wow.

    Honestly how could they not notice that during filming. So they had to notice and just didn't care?

    Very interesting catch.

    I think this sums up what they did in the Special Edition:

    "While we were shooting the musical scene at Jabba's Palace (shot at ILM, which we referred to as "Jedi Rocks"), George Lucas had the idea to insert Boba into the scene chatting up the dancers. During a break in the filming, Rick McCallum called me over to ask if there were any Boba costumes in the archives for us to use. I said there were, so he told me to go up at lunch and get one, bring it back and wear it for the scene...so I did."

    Too bad I didn't know about this when Don Bies was in Stockholm having a bit of Q&A about his NASA models (which quickly turned into more SW related questions).

    Very nice, I was just watching ROTJ last night with my kids and I noticed something else as well, right after leia brings chewy in to collect the bounty on him, and looks to Boba and he nods back, the screen shot is mirror flipped, I had to rewind and pause, his range finder and cape were on the wrong sides, so I have earned the title of uber nerd from my wife for catching it lol.
