    I'm glad they didn't go with the other version, looks like it's got a muffler on the side!

    That is sweet! There's a book out now about the making of the first SW with a lot of pics of the original sculpts. Now where's a pic of the original Fett sculpts?

    That would be a very young George Lucas in the background of the first pic.

    Not really.

    Is it me or does seeing an unvaced TK look odd and sort of cool. It is amazing on what items look like before you vac them.

    You know, somewhere buried in those archival photos, there has to be fett sculpture concepts/progress just waiting to be uncovered.

    There is, they just did a REALLY poor job of organizing there photos... I think they went and scanned most everything they had but its all dumped in a giant database to the best of my knolage with no real organization.

    Hopefully some day they will revamp all of that because it would be nice to see some of that stuff published!

    I've had pretty good luck with two people at LFL I have asked for archive photos of Rebel helmets. I think the longest it took for them to find something out for me was 3 days. Never asked about Fett stuff or Imperial stuff really. Then again, I try not to seem like I'm always bothering them about stuff like that when I talk to them either LOL

    any of those rebel helmets happen to be the fleet trooper? a bunch of us are having the "is it grey or white" argument again.

    I know there was a bit of controversy regarding the use of the above pics. Fortunately a friend of TDH has very graciously provided us with another copy of the image. It is a bit rough, but much larger. Thank you for sharing!

    I believe Obi Sean's post was very clear but since a few people need things spelled out for them, let me make sure there is no misunderstanding in regard to this thread; do NOT bring fights from other boards here. Any additional posts made that even hint at ugliness will result in the poster being banned.

    I was only sent the one pic. I know I would love to see more... especially of that one odd prototype helmet! It is ugly as can be but fascinating! Can you imagine if THAT had been the final helmet and how it would change the debates we see on the RPF and other trooper boards?

    "Well, you got the divot between the eyes right, but the snorkel is CLEARLY too small! The correct respirator is a 56346A oil can, not the more common 56346B. Sheesh! And I thought you guys knew something about SCUBATROOPERS!

    Sounds pretty much like the regular discussions... just with different parts and details. Though... a bit less aggressive than we are used to. Think you need to add some pie throwing.

    Well, we'll eventually see if more is shown.
