Edge of Tomorrow: Behind the Scenes.
No concept art here, but there is some really impressive stuff going on behind the scenes of this movie, plus a whole bunch of really cool exo-skeletons. I’m extremely surprised to see just how much of this movie was practical effects; I’d assumed the majority of it was digital.
And I strongly recommend this movie if you haven’t seen it! It’s a ton of fun and a really great premise.
Also, no spoilers.
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.
Well, that’s the last of the Gundam stuff. I’m not really “good” at Tumblr but I’ll try to find a way to archive/catalog all those posts (as well as those from the first theme week) sometime in the future for easy access.
Thanks for joining me this week and I hope you all enjoyed it.
