Dressing a Bounty Hunter in 40 Stages - A Black and White Story


Well-Known Hunter
I always liked the various dressing stages of the Supertrooper and the Pre-Pro #1 suits found in the TDH Gallery (the Promo #1 armor and vest was added in lack of other sources). So I said, it's time to do a silent step by step 'documentation' (because images worth more than 1000 words) with the dressing of the best Bounty Hunter in the whole galaxy: BOBA FETT.

Awesome! - and extremely informative.

Vote for Sticky!

This is a really great photo collection, it's so interesting to see shots like these! I second the vote for sticky!
Thanks a lot!

Nice compilation Raf! I never saw this before, but in the pic above what the heck is under his arm, directly underneath the shoulder bell?
Thanks! I assume that what you see there is the lower part of the vest, and is accidentally hanging out under the left arm.

Awesome collection...another vote for sticky. Thanks Raf! :)
Thanks, hobbit!

This is a really informative photo. I've haven't seen anyone construct their flight suit quite like this yet (hose eyelets in the back, what looks like adjustable cuffs, built-in neck seal, etc.)
I agree! The whole Supertrooper/Boba Fett suit was made with great care and attention to each and every detail and looking to all the images posted in the first post everyone can see the complexity of the Boba Fett suit.

By the way, thanks for making this thread a 'sticky'!

That's pretty awesome. This is the first time I've seen where those dang hoses go!!!!!!!! Thank you!
Thanks! These are all images from the TDH Gallery and I advise everybody to check it more often, especially when you need reference to build or paint a particular part of the suit.

Absolutely fabulous! I had never seen most of this pictures and an it is a moving testimony of the beginning of the saga

Moved the following images for continuity:

Stage-03 after stage-01 - The jumpsuit goes first, then the boots! (although there are people who dress that way: first the boots, then the rest of the clothes)
Stage 3-1.jpg

Stage-14 after stage-10 - The left gauntlet was already on the wrist when they showed the right gauntlet.
Stage 14-10.jpg

Stage-27 after stage-28 - The balaclava is first in open position then in closed position (not the other way).
Stage 27-28.jpg

Stage-34 after stage-37 - The balaclava was already attached to the helmet interior.
Stage 34-37.jpg

Stage-38 after stage-21 - When Johnston's assistent (?) shows the cape, there's no helmet put on.
Stage 38-21.jpg

Update 11-01-2013
Stage-38 after stage-32 and stage-25 after stage-38 - In stage-25 we can see Johnston attaching the cape to the jetpack clip, so the cape show-off (stage-38) should go before that image, but after the image with the grappling hook inserted in the jetpack (stage-32).
Stage 38-32 And 25-38.jpg

In the Supertrooper suit was Alan Harris (the whole suit was build around him, but he played Bossk in the end) and in the Pre-Pro #1 suit (according to the Star Wars Chronicles) was Bruce Nicholson.

Looks like I need to upgrade my jetpack harness with four large square d-rings instead of the plastic clips currently on. (y)
