Discussion on Screen Used ROTJ Jet Pack within the Boba Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; In total, I have about 5 pictures of the ROTJ
SWEET PICS Andy!! :thumbup
Is it possible that is the 'stunt' pack used in the Sarlaac scene, and the ones on the MOM and AOSW tours are the Hero packs?

Yep, this was the Stunt pack.
i want a foam JP!!!
I guess they used foam to help protect the stuntman that took the fall?
Falling on Fiberglass couldn't be too comfortable. Plus it and plastic could shatter on impact, thereby ruining the shot.
depends on what kind of foam though. The kind of latex foam rubber they use in animatronics and puppets is often very soft but has a great tear strength. also remember that things like this can be painted too.
i'm not saying they used anything high quality to make it, just that it's possible that the rotj pack was well made and could hold up.
but behind a glass case I'll never know
I do like that paintjob of the weathering on there, foam or not.
Dude, foam? Marrow Sun I think this is a project you need to tackle!
After doing your bucket interiors, this should be a walk in the park!:jet pack
