I am very interested in beginning a build of the initial prototype Boba Fett/supertrooper, but I can't seem to find reference to the actually color of the flight suit / vest / large side pouches / spats. In the video with Ben Burtt describing the prototype suit, he says, "he looks totally white." However, looking over the video, as well as every still image available, it appears to me that these soft parts are a very-light grey, and all of the hard parts (plus boots and leather belt/pouches) are white. I could chalk it up to lighting, but the towel that is temporarily used for the cape appears white. Again, it could be a difference in the fabric combined with the lighting, but the flight suit really does look slightly grey, not white. I know the 3 3/4" figure has these parts as a medium grey, which I agree is too dark, but it does lend a little support to the argument that the flight suit was a shade of grey, not white.
Since there is no CRL yet completed for the supertrooper, I am looking to the wisdom of those out there who have already completed this costume.
Thanks for your insight,
