How would that explain the Ben Burtt and Duwayne Dunham video? Of course now that I actually need the information I can't remember exactly but I remember hearing that the screening video was filmed at one of the crew's houses in California.

The stormtrooper stuff was made in the UK right? But that was PRIOR to Fett, Fett/Supertrooper was after ANH propmaking so may not have been made in the UK. Not sure myself...but maybe Art knows?

We know for shure that the Supertrooper/Boba Fett helmet and armor part castings were made in the UK, then Alan Harris did the first test fit then the suit was shipped to the US to be presented to Lucas and crew, and maybe then Johnston painted that suit in the Pre-Pro #1 colors.

Mmm, interesting. So who sculpted the original father to the 6 sons (if you like!)? Would Joe Johnston have sculpted it? Just curious....

So is the SuperTrooper Boba a dented helmet or not. I have seen both dented and predent in the BF ST in the gallery. I want to build a BF ST but not sure which I need to do.

I have found some interestin info on a site called "Starwars Propaganda". If you select prop archive, then boba fett and finally prop story, there's some good history.
That site belongs to 'gino' a long time member here as well on the RPF and he is now (copy/paste from RPF) an 'Art Director/Product Development for EFX Collectibles'.

wow thanks for info. I wonder if Art knows? It sure fits in with the GMH being a real cast. With the pre production 2 history. If you look on the website's pictures you can see that the dent is an exact match for the dent on the GMH!

Yeah Art knows all about that. Gino has been a long time member of the RPF and TDH. He's not a bad guy either ;).

If you look on the helmet history page abouve, (The modified one) you can see a helmet 2 under the PP2 helmet its called the MF (malone Fett) this is the helmet thats on Gino's site,
Youl be hard pressed to find a fett helmet that has linage to the real helmets that isnt known about by the Fett heads over here
