    Questions without answers about Boba Fett?

    I don't know if these things were discussed here or elsewhere, but here are the questions:

    1 - I was looking at the Supertrooper images and saw this:

    boba-fett-costume-screen-test-01-jpg boba-fett-costume-screen-test-06-jpg

    Those marks on the left shoulder looks like the helmet's front arrows (I altered a little bit the images to be more visible). What are those?

    2 - The Bantha Skull on the Pre-Pro 3 is the same as the ROTJ one. We know that the PP3 was painted to look like the ESB (or vice versa), the major differences are the Gauntlets and the Jetpack. As I recall, the ESB was painted prior filming, so this suit is the most recent of all 6 versions and this means that the ESB suit was a one of a kind setup?

    3 - There are images with the ESB helmet that looks like the ROTJ one: it's missing the polaroid rangefinder. When this happened?

    4 - What is this on the Pre-Pro 1 Jetpack? This is where the cape was originally attached to help cover Boba's chest to look like Clint Eastwood's character?

    I know, too much questions... But how many answers?

    I never noticed the mark on the Supertrooper shoulders, looks like the helmet arows,
    and from what is known the PP3 was b4 the ESB but Joe johnson kept adding to Sandys work and more than likely is resonsble for all the Death Head skulls
    The entire clear piece is missing from the cargo hold seen so must havbe dropped out
    No idea about the clip

    That image IS from the Pre-Pro 1 suit assembly.
    Looking at those images I think that thing on the Jetpack is to hold the cape's one end while the other end was attached to the collar's clip.

    The PP3 picture that Rafal posted also shows the cape/clip being used with the jetpack.

    In the case of PP3 it seems the cape is somehow squeezed on the JP harness. It's similar with this ROTJ skiff scene: boba-fett-costume-returnof-jedi-hd-079-png

    The scratches and markins on the PP1 and PP3 jetpack lead me to believe that they are the same pack.

    It even appears that there is a black plastic tab that the cape is attached to in that ROTJ photo.

    The marks on the shoulders are arrows like on the helmet.

    You are right! The PrePro #1 and PrePro #3 has the same Jetpack and I guess the JP clip is there on the PP3 too, but I think is not attached as it was designed for the PP1 suit.

    On a side note: they replicated the PP3 suit for the ESB in such a manner that they even did the dark grey and red top collar studs (you can see those two on the images posted in this post).
