    Oct 7, 2011, 2:24 PM - Supertrooper Footage? #1

    I have a new and almost unfounded fascination with the Supertrooper costume. Is the 20+ minute footage from the Supertrooper reveal at Lucas' house available anywhere or included on any of the versions of Star Wars that I don't own? I was hoping it would have been on the Blu Ray release. Alas...

    Also, what's the deal with the Star Wars towel as the cape? Was that just kind of a joke/placeholder for the reveal?

    And even less, 4:35.

    I have it, I'll upload it tomorrow if you do not get it before.

    When I typed that I was just working from memory of something I read from the TDH gallery. I don't really have any secret knowledge! LOL!

    "On June 28, 1978 a 20-minute black and white screen test video was shot behind George Lucas' house in which sound designer Ben Burtt "hosts" Boba Fett's reveal for Lucas and crew, describing the different weapons, functions, and characteristics of the costume. In this video, the Supertrooper costume is worn by the Empire Strikes Back's assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham."

    I haven't ever seen any of it, so anything you guys have that is able to be shared would be great!

    Thanks RF! That is awesome.

    After seeing this, there definitely is a longer version that exists. This was cut for release and interspersed with interviews. It would be fantastic if the full-length ever came to light, but even so this is really nice to see.
