Boba Fetts inception is almost as mysterious as his character. What is known is that the unique Mandalorian armor he wears was designed and then fabricated in England well in advance of the filming of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.
The armor and helmet is believed to have started life as a variant form of the stormtrooper for the sequel, in which multiple costumes were made. However, as often happens in film production, plans change and in early 1978 the all white armor and helmets were shipped to ILM where work began converting them into the distinctive and dangerous bounty hunter Boba Fett.
Joe Johnson, the production illustrator and designer, began work on Fetts helmet shortly after ILM relocated from southern to northern California. Lucasfilm archival photo reference shows Joe working on the hero helmet, which was later worn by actor Jeremy Bulloch during principal photography. It is likely Joe also prepared a back-up helmet, which resides in the archive, as its paintwork closely matches the scratches and technique of the hero
To create the Master Replicas Boba Fett helmet, MR engineers laser scanned an original helmet in the archives, perfectly capturing the shape and subtle nuances of the face and dome and output a master pattern from which all their production molds were made.
Over the years the hero helmet has sustained additional scuffs and scratches from its many world tours and exhibitions. Using extensive photographic reference, MR worked with a talented artist to recreate the hero helmet paint scheme as it appeared in 1979 when it first went before cameras at Elstree Studios.
