    I don't know how many of you have noticed this scene, but it's a quick flash of where Boba drew his blaster after Boussh threatened Jabba with a thermal detonator in ROTJ.

    And it's a mirror image! Brak's Buddy actually fixed it when he posted the HD photos from ROTJ.

    The film was reversed in order to (I believe) make the action flow more realistically..

    If someone was to do an exact costume based on this frame, would it still be acceptable for 501st membership?

    I could really open a can of worms by posting this, but as a GML, I would not approve it. Yes the costume is seen in the movie like that, but it was done by altering the shot, not the costume. And I'd think that the 501st's audience would want to see Boba Fett's ROTJ costume as it is suppose to be.

    the image was reversed so the eyelines matched up. if it was correct it would look like boba was pointing in the totally wrong direction.

    There were a couple of other quick scenes where Boba was flipped, but after Luke arrived, he was in his "correct configuration" if you will, and through the part where he fell into the Sarlacc pit. It's just that I am doing my research tonight for more accurate screen shots and this was the first time that I really noticed it. I had a feeling that there was something odd every time I watched it, but just couldn't quite put my finger on it. Thanks for the great feedbacks guys!

    Count D, I hate to bring this up after you've completed that lovely (backwards) helmet. . . but looking thru my reference of secret archival production images, it seems that scene originally had Boba using his gravity shifter.
    So this is how the original scene actually looked:



    I'm afraid you've built your helmet upside down!

    Oh man, all these upgrades and corrections are getting expensive. Do you realize how much machined-aluminum upside-down flipped ear caps cost?? That's it, I'm done.

    Theres another shot in bobas palace where he is just standing there and its backwards also. I noticed it because the cape was on his wrong shoulder.
