    Pre Pro 3

    Has anyone done this version?

    is it basically ESB Fett with RED & YELLOW gaunt, as seen on toy packaging?

    I'm really not sure what PP3 is, but PP2 is the one you're thinking of I believe. The one on the toy package is PP2, and has those gauntlets, but rotj jet pack, rotj cape, esb braids, different colored jumpsuit, tighter fit, and the helmet is different from both movie versions, but more like the rotj.

    And I think It has a ROTJ JetPack and Cape Style. But I haven't got good pictures to see the dents, belt, ...

    We have extremely limited ref of the PP3... the only real images coming from Chronicles. Here are a few to get you started.

    Re: Pre Pro 3

    So how did they go from red and yellow gauntlets to just green? Same with the jet pack - the PP pack looks like the ROTJ pack, and the ESB again...just mainly green.

    I'm not a boba expert...so don't be too harsh on me...

    My guess...they didn't want him walking around looking like Bozo the Fett.

    They probably saw green as the main color and said, "well instead of mismatched gauntlets and a colorful jet pack, let's stick with green!"

    Most of the stuff on him looks very ESB. Minus the gauntlets, cape and jet pack.

    Oh, if you are doing this Sixx, be sure to get the accurate yellow tape on the right gauntlet!

    It's also sometimes seen with the "Eyes" helmet.

    I think you are probably hitting pretty close to the truth. I think the all green look was a last minute decision. I base this on the jet pack more than anything else. All the prepro work shows the RotJ pack with heavy and very complex weathering... The final esb pack? Pretty much one color with very quick and dirty weathering that isn't detailed at all. Looks like a rush job at the last minute because someone changed their mind.

    Re: Pre Pro 3

    I think I mount mine almost that high. I thought it was accurate that height, the missile over the helmet a little bit if I recall right. Maybe I don't have mine that high.

    Jet Pack in ESB sags a little big, not too sure about ROTJ.

    Even dow the jet packs sags on the movies, i think none of us would like ours to be sagging. It's just looks to sloopy for my taste.

    I know were talking about Boba, but I like mine nice and high.

    There have been so many people to don the suit that the pack is all over the place. You can pretty much put it whereever you want but I agree that high and tight looks best.

    I've been considering ordering a few extra armour parts from FP so I could do this also. I'd need a new helmet too, since I plan to do the "eyes" Fett.

    Re: Pre Pro 3

    This version but with the 'eyes' lid is my fav version. I am so tempted to change my SE now

    I know its the picture quality is strange, but i kinda like the way the lid and armour have a blue hue to them,

    I really do love this version...it's one of my favorites....it could almost be called an "ESB SE", like the ROTJ SE....

    As a painter, to me...this is one of the best shots of the ESB Right shoulder armor...

    The first pic is the PP2. The second one is the PP1 (Ears/Eyes) helmet. You guys do realize all of these pics and a whole lot more are available on the ref CD in high res scan, right?

    Or could it be that the blue on the JetPack matched too closely to the BlueScreen Blue they were using for compositing and had to be changed because it kept 'matte'ing out in test shots (kind of like the blue squares on R2-D2's head being changed to black for the x-wing bluescreen closeups). And after changing the JP color it looked a little 'odd' that the only different colored armor was his gauntlets, so they got changed to green also.
