A stunt Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch) helmet casting from the production of Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. After collecting the bounty on Han Solo's (Harrison Ford) head, Solo accidentally disabled Fett's jetpack and dropped the bounty hunter directly into the Sarlacc Pit.
This two-piece white vacuformed plastic casting for a stunt version of the helmet as designed by Joe Johnston is production-made and unpainted. The pieces are joined together at the center with bits of adhesive residue around the ears. The vac-form helmet was made in consideration for stunt usage, but flexible rubber helmets were ultimately used instead. This helmet is in good overall condition with a few small dents and some liquid stains to the interior. Dimensions: 10 1/2" x 10 1/2" x 10 1/2" (26.75 cm x 26.75 cm x 26.75 cm)
Estimate: $20,000 - 30,000
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
