Boba Fett is the most infamous bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy. His first public debut was on September 24, 1978 in the San Anselmo County Fair parade in California, the home of Lucasfilm at the time.

Boba Fett in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back as one of the 6 bounty hunters that Darth Vader hires to capture Luke, along with Princess Leia, Han Solo and Chewbacca. He tracks the Millennium Falcon to Lando Calrissian's Cloud City, where Darth Vader hands over Han, encased in carbonite, to the bounty hunter to take to Jabba the Hutt to collect his reward. Boba Fett meets his fate in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi with the Sarlacc in the Great Pit of Carkoon on Tatooine.
The distinctive design of the Boba Fett helmet was originally created by Joseph Eggleston "Joe" Johnston III. During pre-production for Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, Johnston was responsible for the design of Boba Fett's distinctive armor and equipment. He worked alongside artist Ralph McQuarrie to develop the unique look for the bounty hunter, which was in fact derived from the early concepts of Darth Vader. The master patterns for the Boba Fett helmet were made from a direct casting of the screen-used helmet. The paint reference and even the timing of the blinking LED's in the rangefinder are based on an extensive study of the original helmet.
