    Sure I'm late, but I just had to add how thrilled I am to see these. I enjoy it every time new photos surface, especially of stuff we haven't seen in a long time. Comparing the scratches, it actually doesn't look too bad after all this time (with the exception of those slices in the back).

    This is sort-of on topic...I actually can't remember if I actually posted these befrore. A good friend of mine was able to take a tour of the archives a while back, where you aren't supposed to be taking photos. She was able to snap these photos of some Fett helmets in the archives, and she said it was okay to share them.

    Sorry there are only the two, but it's better than zero! What I would give for photos of each helmet from all angles...
    You may have seen these helmets way back when in a photo gallery accompanying an article on Starwars.com, but the photo was quite tiny. On the left there is an "unknown" Prepro, painted much in the same style as the PP2 and the ROTJ (probably the same person?). Notice the wires running down from the rangefinder stalk. The middle one is a poor looking ESB stunt (with foam blocks for the rangefinder and earpiece, and the one on the right is the PP3 (looks very close to ESB, hence MR originally using it as reference for their helmet). Tucked in the back there looks to be another ESB-type paintjob, I don't know anything else about it.

    Just wanted to post these again for more prepduction helmet goodness, and in case anyone hasn't seen them.

    Wow great pics JFJ! I wonder what helmet that is on the left?!? Man has it seen some better days. It doens't look like any of the pre-pro helmets I have seen thought it is definatlly painted by the same person using the same colors. It also shows how totally different those paint jobs are compared to the PP3/ESB buckets. Even the base green of the dome and lower cheaks looks to be a totally different color.

    That helmet has been dubbed the "Sandy" helmet in honor of the woman who painted it as well as the PP2 and the RotJ. She has a picture in which she is holding all three after they had been painted. As you pointed out, it is really interesting to note the difference in both the color choice and paint style seen on these helmets vs the paint colors and style used on the ESB, PP3 and the Eyes helmet.

    Cool pics!! The midddle and the one on the right looks like they are made of rubber or thin plastic as they look pretty warped. Thanks alot for sharing!

    Also i wonder about the pic of the Fett helmet from the "best of the lucas archives book" It has a weird RF stalk
    and it looks like it cannot be moved into another position. Was it a ESB stunt helmet?

    BB:
    I remember those photos of the girl that painted them. If i remember correctly they were the proof on what colors were used on the originals.

    The one on the right, the Prepro 3 helmet is definitely fiberglass, but the middle one is some sort of stunt helmet, and who knows what that is made of!

    Also i wonder about the pic of the Fett helmet from the "best of the lucas archives book" It has a weird RF stalk

    It is definitely the same kind of helmet (stunt) that we see in the "Best of the Lucas Archives" book, but I think that exact helmet is behind the one we see in those photos.

    I don't know why they would have an ESB stunt helmet in the first place. There was absolutely zero scenes in that movie that had Boba Fett doing anything that would resemble stunt work.

    ???? That's quite strange.

    That stunt helmet was used in ROTJ when Boba flew onto the small skift that Luke was on.

    Yeah, I knew that. But then why would they paint up a stunt helmet in the ESB paintjob when they were working with the ROTJ helmet for the rest of the shots? They would have made a stunt helmet to more match the ROTJ helmet. It would seem the ESB stunt was a leftover from the ESB movie, but there were no stunt scenes involving Boba Fett in ESB. It just doesn't add up.
