    Hello there.

    I as told you in my introduction, I am doing these Jedi pouches. They were from the original molds and I filed the holes and get them ready to cast. But, I was not able to find the right metal clips. I contacted several US vendors and nobody give me a sample, I was willing to pay for it. So If you can help me I will appreciate that. There are so many people looking for them.

    If u want to see more pictures of them, take a look at the tutorial I wrote in my website at:

    http://www.theforce.com.ar/Scripts/WebForm...&lNewsId=43
    http://www.theforce.com.ar/Scripts/WebForm...&lNewsId=45
    http://www.theforce.com.ar/Scripts/WebForm...&lNewsId=59

    I wrote them in Spanish, I am sorry . It is not finished. I will add more pictures in the future. U can use an online translator. This is my first resin work. I usually work with leather, so this is getting hard for me.

    Hey Kyle.

    I'm Justin, one of Bryans Anakin buddies Glad to see you here.

    I really like how the new wide turned out. Though sorry none of my links to close clips worked out. I have a few pictures on my computer that I can upload once its back from the shop.

    If you cannot find the exact clips I wouldn't hold it against you, of all the details you never see them so any clip would work I think, as aggrevating as that would be...

    great job finding the hinges and screws.

    Justin,
    Thanks for your kind words. Who knows, maybe some guy here will help us to find one. The ones I can buy in Argentina are black and 1 inch wide. They are like the one used but half inch wider. If I do not get any response about them here, I will end up buying them. I received 4 o 5 emails per week asking for them and I really want to finish them.

    Does anyone know how the hook pouch could be closed without modify the original mold? do you understand what I mean, I am talking about the closure method. The original one does not have anything.

    Couldn't you use velcro to hold it closed?

    What type of metal clips are you talking about in the original post? Do you have a picture?

    Randy,

    I am talking about one like this:
    http://www.eleatherworks.com/product.php?p...99&cat=0&page=1

    Yes, I thought about the Velcro option. But I do not know. I am watching the magnetic solution too. Thin magnetic paper should work right?

    The thin magnetic tape would probably work too.

    No one will ship you those? Have you tried Tandy Leather?

    http://www.tandyleather.com/

    I get a lot of stuff from them. They carry the clips - look in the Hardware section under Holster clips.

    Randy, Nop I did not try this one. I found this one:
    http://www.tandyleather.com/products.asp?number=1239-00

    I think could work 4 the solid ones, but the hook pouch has one different in my reference photo. What do you think?

    It looks similiar to this one:

    http://www.tandyleather.com/products.asp?number=1240-00

    Hard to tell for sure, but it looks like they might have cut a slot in the back of the pouch and tucked the back of the holster clip inside the pouch. Do you have any other reference pictures?

    Based on that picture, it looks like they used the clip in your link (http://www.tandyleather.com/products.asp?number=1239-00) and put the back half inside the pouch through 2 slots cut in it. Still, kind of hard to tell without a high res picture (or an original ).

    Hello there. I received many pms asking for the source of the molds. I will tell you that the comlink pouch, the mechanicall one and the little one are from EP2 molds. The hook pouch is from EP3 obviously. I bought them in Australia. This week I am doing the molds, cause I finished the original. They came in good shape, but I filled the holes and repaired some flaws. Stay tune. Best regards.

    As you can see, the used Velcro as closure method. I scanned this from Star Wars Fact File. You can also see the shape of the metal clips.
    I do not know if Vecro will do the work 4 the hook pouch. I do not even know if they glued the pouch for action scenes What do you think?

    Well apparently the hook pouch was never used, you can see Hayden take the hook from the leather one in the film. I am betting they were sealed for the duration of the scenes.

    Personally when I get one from you I will be sealing it shut.

    DO WHAT? After that work I did. NO please. I found a case, that has a similar closure, but this one really works. I will try to take a good picture. It is a case to keep soap, I found it in the bath. Really amazing.

    By the way, this friday I am going to learn how to do the molds. My pal in Agentina was very busy doing his own props, but he agreed to teach me on Friday. I will have some time to buy the silicon rubber and resin on saturday and start something next monday I hope. Best regards.

    I am so excited. Today I went to my pal workshop. He teach me how to do the mold boxes. He also showed me the materials involved in the molds construction. So as homework I have to build the boxes for the next week. Fooling around the web I found this:

    http://www.tapplastics.com/uploads/pdf/Mol...0Directions.pdf

    Very useful for me. So I am working so hard to finish the pouches this month. Best regards.

    PD: This is my first work with resin, so be patient with me

    I just received the metal clips. Do not you know what happened. The ones I received are different from the ones pictured on the website. I will take some photos tonight and post them tomorrow.

    I emailed the guys cause I want to change them. You will see the pictures and U will compare.

    Any comments about the mold boxes? Any advice before go to the next step?
