As the title states, these images were gathered over the last days, weeks and months of Internet searching and most of them are not in the TDH Gallery. Maybe one of the mods will add them to the Gallery.
Note that the first image is from the same series as the second image, which was taken from the Gallery.
Note that the first image is present on the last image too (which is from the Gallery) but is more detailed.
The first image, more specifically the Boba Fett half exist in the Gallery, and this goes for the second image too, but in this case this is a hi(er)-res image.
These images were shot in a professional studio (for the exibits?), but the interesting fact is the first image, more exactly the fact that we can see the ROTJ hero helmet with the ROTJ Hero jetpack (in all the exibit images the ROTJ Hero jetpack is present with the ESB Hero helmet, the so called ROTJ Se suit) and this image was definitely made after ROTJ.
This image (taken by an RPF member from the Star Wars Blu-Ray Extra) is missing from the Gallery.
These images were made by me and were made just for fun (each file name contains the 'photo montage' to avoid misleading.
The first image was made using ESB stills while the second image was made from ESB screen caps.
New addition 26-11-2012
While I did my usual browsing I found something extraordinary! The images are not best quality, but the fact that these blueprints and info are available is great news. So whoever has the 'Star Wars - The Blueprints' and a good scanner...
Note that the last image (taken from the first image) has the perspective view corrected and was also resized to a higher but poor resolution.
And this is the link to the images ==> Star Wars - The Blueprints the images are labeled 21 and 22.
Among some known facts we can read that these blueprints were drawn by Norman Reynolds in May 1978, the sculptor's name was 'Jen Stevros' (it's hard to read it correctly) and the actual building was made by Brian Archer. And we can see the working flamethrower and a 'new' side of the Supertrooper suit worn by Alan Harris.
I tried to decipher the text on the first image and I think I did a good job:
Note that the bolded texts are hard to understand or missing parts and were added as logical deductions. The hardest to decipher is the sculptor's name(*) which might be a known name by some members.STORMTROOPER II - EPISODE V
As many Empire aficionados knows, bounty hunter Boba Fett started out as an all-white supertrooper. The origins of his creations begins in February/March 1978 when Johnston did several concept drawings of the next-generation stormtrooper's armor and secret weaponry. In april, Lucas's second draft introduced Fett, a bounty hunter, though in May the costume was still designed as a "stormtrooper II" in Reynolds's very early backpack drawing (no. 02). In June, a film test in the States, showing a prototype based on Reynolds's series, still featured an all-white costume, presumably that of the supertrooper. But in September a fully clothed and painted Fett marched through Marin County in his final incarnation during a local fair. In November, Fett appeared in the rest of the United States as an animated character in the Star Wars Holiday Special on television.
The exact day or month that Fett and the supertrooper costume combined is subject to speculation. Clearly for the Holiday Special to be aired in November, plans lead to have been finalized at least a couple of months earlier -- possibly around the date George was writing his second draft in March or, at the latest, June 1978, when a concept drawing by Joe Johnston is clearly labeled "Boba Fett."
"As I recall, just before I started full-time on Empire, Robert Watts received a sketch from ILM depicting what was described as a super stormtrooper," says Reynolds. "He asked me if I would develop the character and produce an outfit for George to consider, so I enlisted the aid of a sculptor, Jan Stevens(*), and a model maker, Brian Archer (who previously had helped me with Threepio's costume), and produced the outfit complete with backpack and helmet range finder. When George finally received the outfit, he decided to change the concept from stormtrooper to bounty hunter."
I managed to find the name of the sculptor/modeller of the Boba Fett suit and her name is Janet Stevens (or Jan Stevens) but sadly I didn't find any image or info regarding her, except the movies she worked on: Janet Stevens - IMDb or Jan Stevens - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
Another mystery solved for us. More to go...

ABOVE The all-white supertrooper costume, like C-3PO's, came with a "poster" to aid assembly, as shown here at Elstree.
If you have never before seen images with Boba Fett, you can post them here.
Finally! The name has a face!!! Jan(et) Stevens:
As I promised, here is another image that is not new, but it has a better resolution:
It's the same room where Jan Stevens did the sculptings, but in the right side image on the top shelf you can see the clay model of the Supertrooper/Boba Fett helmet (this was already pointed out in an older thread by BGHunter, if I'm not mistaking), but if you looks closer, there are more goodies:
If some of the images are breaking the TDH Rules then please let me know and I will remove them from this thread
