Not sure how many different helmets were made, I'd talk to Brak's Buddy about that. He's the biggest Fett bucket geek around.
Not only did they change gauntlets from Boba to Jango, all ±7 boba costumes have different sets of gauntlets, paint or body shape differents.
The jet pack used in ESB had a different shape rocket as in ROTJ, I believe it was shorter and slimmer, not sure what was used in the Pre-Pro versions. In AOTC, Jango wore the basic jet pack in the first fight against Obi-Wan, the paint job resembled Boba Fett in ROTJ; that jet pack was destroyed. During the Arena fight, Jango had a 2nd jet pack that had a different rocket and thruster setup, the body was basically the same.
Boba didn't wear any of Jango's armour, the jet pack that Jango used that resembled Boba's was destroyed near the beginning of ATOC when fighting Obi-Wan. At some point Jango got hit and the jet pack flew off into the wall and exploded.

OHH, I mixed it up, I thought he had the (cant recall the name) but the blue jet-pack at the beginning of AotC, and switched at the end. Your right, he switched to the new one later in that movie.
Kinda sucks as seen screen wise, they indicated that boba took Jangos suit and used it later in the series. And Shame on Tye Tegger for not picking up on that!!!!
I still think it woulda been cool if Boba turned out to be a cold hearted hot chick.
lol, I wonder if boba even used the same slave 1 his father used. Probably not. : ( Man what a screw up!!!)
The viewfinder in boba helmet doesn't blink when lowered!!! MR shows it doing so. It is wrong!!!

the range finder did blink on boba's helmet in esb. the only time the rf is ever seen in the down position when boba is piloting slave 1 after being released with the garbage from the star destroyers. the rf is blinking like crazy.
as far as the aotc and rotj jet packs, since they aren't the same one, my guess would be that the blue and yellow color scheme is the factory paint job, and that boba must have got bored with a can of spray paint one night and painted one green.
and finally, i think that it's the same slave 1. ships cost a lot more than armor, helmets, and jet packs; and since it was shown that young boba did have a knowledge of how to operate the ship in aotc it would be safe to assume that boba snuck away with it after the battle of geonosis.

Slave 1 never changes... if you follow the cannonised EU, the Designations for each ship owned by Boba were the same except for the numeral, Slave 1 was his first ship and he took possession from his 'father', and when he went into the Sarlacc, he lost the Slave 1, so he went and bought another ship... Cant remember what type, but it was named Slave II.. I think he got up to Slave 5... but that is just my memory im going off atm...

Hmmm, I'll have to REALLY look hard cause I dont see the rangefinder blink.
Boba did however repaint the slave1 if it is his fathers.

The Boba view finder doesn't blink like crazy, it doesn't even blink at all. I could only see two little lights for about 13 frames on the inside of it. Jango's seemed to blink alot though.
Please correct me if I am wrong. I am trying to create replica helmets for dirt cheap for the die hard fans, so all the help I can get is great!

He stole Bossk's ship, the Hound's Tooth. I do believe he gets his original Firespray back at some point though.
