Topic: 1978 Screen Test Video

Recently pulled into the spotlight by starwars.com, the white prototype armor for Boba Fett was first seen in a 1978 screen test.

See the video at http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/bou … ype-armor/

In the clip, sound editor Ben Burtt introduces the viewer to Boba Fett, as portrayed by assistant editor Duwayne Dunham. In later photos, Alan Harris models the suit.

In the video, they test out a lot of Boba Fett's armor and weapons. He also temporarily has a Star Wars beach towel.

Thoughts on the video itself?

The video is a most interesting bit of trivia especially for Boba Fett fans. If you go on Youtube you can find silent footage of the first ever appearance of Boba Fett at that county fair parade back in 1978. That also is a pretty cool video. :-)
