    New SW insider Fett questions

    Ok anyone have the new Star Wars Insider? Inside there is a pic of Boba (the editors note page). What version of the costume is this? Now before you answer look close, it at first appears to be the Pre-pro2 costume, but the jumpsuit is grey not blue, it isn't the pre-pro2 helmet (nor any that I can recongize for that matter) a couple of the chest armor peices are pre-pro2 but the ab plate and left chest aren't, the yellow gauntlet has way more weathering then it did in the pre-pro2 shots, and one of the knees are not pre-pro2. Also he is wearing his gun on his left and Boba ususally is right handed. I don't own a scanner so I can't post a pic but if someone can that might help.

    Not having seen the image,could it be a reverse print?Like how it is done in ROTJ at Jabbas place.

    Haha. I got my issue today and was surprised to see it too. I've been waiting to get home to ask about it. I'll post a picture in a minute.

    Awesome! The helmet is one of the original 3 painted in that fashion; the ROTJ, PP2, and this the "Sandy helmet" after the woman who painted all three. This helmet has not been seen outside the archives to my knowledge before this picture. It is in somewhat poor condition today...

    I realized it was not the Radio drama costume after actually bothering to look at my pictures..

    Might it be the 1980's Tour costume seen here? I forget whom these belong to and I apologize. They where taken in a mall at around the time of empire I think.

    Looks like he forgot to tuck those hoses under the sleeves.

    Yea I think it is the tour costume. I was just supprised to see a pic of a fett costume that I have never seen before. Awesome. I knew the answer was here.

    The right chest piece is from PP2, and the ab plate is a different Sandy than on the Heilman photos. The bucket appears to be the cracked/broken one from the archive photos. And I count at least 11 ammo pouches! Too cool!

    It's missing the hose attachment on the right gauntlet. It's a very cool pic.

    It actually looks like the pouches are on backwards. I don't see any in the front shot.
