Boba Fett concept art by Joe Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie with a bonus picture of Jeremy Bulloch in the near-finalized costume.  

Before Boba Fett was Boba Fett, Ralph and Joe were tasked with designing an “ultra” Stormtrooper that (I’m assuming) would have been part of an elite Imperial task force or some sort of special forces unit.  Somewhere along development, it was decided that this elite Stormtrooper would instead be its own unique character, and thus, Boba Fett was born.  

If I’m putting the evidence together correctly, the design for the costume was practically finalized when it was decided that the trooper would instead become Boba Fett.  As a result, one of the suit’s early color schemes was entirely white to match with the original Stormtroopers.  You can get a good idea of what that looked like via this action figure.  Still, however, you can see that McQuarrie’s early sketches of the helmet (Images 2 and 3) draw heavily from the original Stormtrooper design before attempting to move away from it.

I’m sure these images have made their way around the internet more than enough times, but I’ve had these saved for a while so here they are.  Besides, everybody loves the Fett. 

All of these images (excluding the image of Bulloch in costume) were taken from The Dented Helmet forums.  There are more images there along with the ones I’ve posted here, so check it out.

 Moai, Easter Island. Carved by the Rapa Nui people, the monolithic sculptures were made between 1250 and 1500. Scientist still are not sure how the giant figures were made and brought here

Metalosis Maligna is a fake disease invented by award-winning Dutch filmmaker Floris Kaayk.

According to the mockumentary, Metalosis Maligna occurs when a metal implant has a bad interaction with human body tissues, causing the metal to grow tendrils that eventually puncture the skin from within and destroy it.

I was skimming through the video at first not knowing it was a mockumentary and landed on the part of the man in bed. I nearly died.
