    This book is currently being sold for 150 by forbidden planet in the uk online. That's about half what one would usually expect to pay for this book in the uk (the standard version is about 60 iirc). Mine just turned up and it's an absolute beauty of a book and certainly a great companion for the deluxe Dressing and Sculpting galaxy books released a few years back. I haven't been able to look through it in detail but I can tell you that there's a lot more to it than the standard edition with plenty of shots and drawings I've never seen; it's still pretty expensive and weighing in at around 12 KG/2 stones you've got to be pretty serious about wanting this book but as the sort of thing you'd be holding onto for decades I doubt you'd feel you'd wasted your money.

    Live the dream

    That's great, Andy! I would love to have this book, but can't afford it. I saw that there were some members who got this book, but never shared (scan or photo) the Supertrooper/Boba Fett pages. Maybe you will be able to do some hi-res shots of the pages, even if it's not the whole page, I could paste them into one giant image.

    For those who saw the Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy book but don't have it, here are the Boba Fett pages:

    boba-fett-costume-01-jpg boba-fett-costume-02-jpg boba-fett-costume-03-jpg boba-fett-costume-04-jpg

    Image 3 and 4 is the same, but the right side is a fold-out page. The image with the vests and chest armor is a video caption, while the left side (with the jetpack and gloves) was recreated using upscaled images and added text.

    As a bonus, here are 2 images:

    boba-fett-costume-05-jpg vest-armor-attachment-jpg

    The first image is a video caption of Brandon Allinger with one of the ROTJ stunt vests with armor (5 vests and 6 jumpsuits are on hangers on the left side), while the 2nd image is a composition of my chest armor template with the attachment holes/points.

    Yeah, can do. It won't be possible for me to scan it because it's a very, very large book. There is a cheaper version of book out there although I'm not sure if there are differences other than presentation. I did do some quick snaps for Major but they didn't come out great due to the lighting conditions of the time so I'll need to redo them. Probably the nicest thing in it Boba wise is the original drawing for the JP from when the character was still called simply 'stormtrooper 2' in March 78.

    I'd like to see that jet pack drawing and anything else of note.
