    These pics became available due to the Jeremy Bulloch project and have finally been made available to you guys thanks to SpideyFett, Philip Wise and Official Pix!

    WOW... Just WOW..

    So much detail.. can't focus...

    So first thing I found interesting (since it's what I'm currently focused on anyway…) . Check out the buttons on the Left Gaunt calc pad. Look like I've got a little update. I thought there was only ONE column of red buttons... Clearly, there are 2 red, 2 blue, 1 silver.

    • Yup.. and the Rub-on transfers on the Rocketpack white detail...upside down E's and H. ..
    • Paint sheme is probably a silver base and wet sanded and weathered.
    • and there's that little nob next to the stablizer too...it shows up again

    If you use these pics, please give Official PIX all the credit...thank you.

    Anther piece I've never seen before (or perhaps better word - noticed)

    What's the black cord on the back coming from under the JP over the back of the girth?

    SWEET!! Looks like an additional detail on the WHITE JetPack decal as well that I didn't notice.

    i'll have to update my decal as well. Thanks Art, thanks Spidey.

    Another thought as I continue to drool...

    Check out the knobs on the JP thrusters. If I didn't know better, I would say they are metal....multiple pieces of metal... Almost like a axel, wheel and hub…

    Perhaps there is some function to it. Perhaps for positioning on camera?

    Perhaps some remote onscreen movements...


    Now I'm just getting crazy

    *Drool drool drool*

    These pictures are great!
    but I think we will never know ALL of Boba's mysteries hehe, the whole costume is just as mysterious as Boba himself.

    The piece are definitely metal. You can see it better on other packs. However, they appear to be one piece, more like a pulley wheel.

    "Functional" can mean a lot of things. I think all the packs are "functional" to a degree. Sadly, I think 90% of their functionality was to power other parts of the suit that ended up not being used, like the gauntlets. As far as how functional the jet packs were themselves? We know the one shot smoke; we also know that several of the others didn't (solid thrusters). We know that one had the expanding grappling hook mechanism in the rocket tip; we also know that most of the rest didn't (solid resin rocket tip). Beyond that and the lighting beacon... I seriously doubt they had a lot of functionality. I definitely don't think they had anything like antimatronic thrusters.

    Thanks for finally getting these pictures out to the public! These might actually help us to figure out the ESB costume once and for all!

    all I know is, Jeremy, who is in these shots, had a serious Wedge... LOL!

    and by "fuctional" I mean it had some purpose.... now for what exactly?? who knows?

    I think a comparison shot of the back that we've all seen and the this new back shot, shows that the Black Cord sticking out was just tucked away from one frame to the next..... can you post a comparison shot of the two Art??

    I say old been...
    I wanted to say something stronger but can't...

    These are great ref material for us ESB's to help strive a little closer to perfection (goes back to the spray booth)

    I personally would like to thank Philip Wise @ Official Pix, Alex & Art for giving us some really great shots of this particular costume! :thumbup thank you!

    Definitely agree with your definition of functional. I do believe those hoses were meant for a practical, not aesthetic purpose.
