    Dec 14, 2010, 6:34 PM - New Fett pic in SW INSIDER #122 #1

    I'm sure some have seen this but in case you haven't, there's a "1981" pic of a tour suit on page 93 in the BOUNTY HUNTER fan photo section.
    It looks like the Sandy helmet but it is curiously missing its rangefinder.

    I don't have a scanner so it's up to someone else to do the honors.

    I only glanced at the Jeremy/Daniel interview which was surprisingly a recap of every other interview theyve done =P

    Which issue are you looking at? Are you talking about the huge reprint SPECIAL EDITION because I'm past that one?

    It kind of looks like he has lifters on Boba's boot to make him taller.
    I think his Rangefinder is also missing.
    His knee's are on the wrong legs and his ammo belt is way to low.
    Still, its great to see a new photo.

    Yep, I mentioned the RF but didn't catch the knees or the shoes.

    Thanks for grabbing a scan, DW.

    I wonder if there are other photos of Touring costumes. I have a jawa that I purchased many years ago and was told it was from something similar, but trying to verify.

    I love that ugly suit, especially that helmet!
    I wish there were definitive shots of the back of it because I want a good copy of it.

    I guess so, I've only heard of it referred to as the "Sandy Helmet". Other than by you lol. ^__-

    We talked about this on another thread somewhere.

    I wonder why that is? Possibly too lazy to cut them out on that particular helmet.
    When the pic in the gallery was taken, did anyone happen to look inside it?

    Wait... wait... wait... I think you are confusing the back of the Sandy helmet with the back of the RotJ stunt helmets, which do have the keyslot area painted on.

    Unless I am getting confused too, I believe this is the back of the Sandy helmet.

    You would be the one of the guys that know, Art.

    I was going by how the helmets looked arranged on the table. Since there were three helmets on the table with the Sandy in the middle, the shots from the back only show the two rightmost ones. That made it look like the Sandy was on the left. But now I see the photo named. Doh!

    I guess it's this type of poor detective work on my part that's the reason why the Scooby-Doo bunch didn't want me in the gang. LOL!

    Yep, I guess I see that now.
    So they turned the helmets around to get the pics or there were more than three helmets on the table.

    My head's going to pop.
