    Trying to come up with a non conventional display idea for my Kenobi saber.
    Has anyone been able to duplicate Kenobi's EP4 belt accurately?
    I know Luke and Han's have been done before...

    Dave aka lgtsbr has done one, and a very nice one it was- during the saberbelt days. I am sure he'll post some pics once he's seen this. Pouches and all, very impressive....

    It's funny, because they kept the saber on the belt between scenes.

    With Jim's help, yes it came out ok. I was never a big fan of the way the pouch turned out and I never got around to remaking it. I will have to see what I have uploaded and go from there, it will be later tonight before I can look on my server

    Thanks for the pics guys.
    Here are some of the pics of the belt from the Sideshow 1/4 scale Kenobi statue taken by one of the members in chinese-starwars.com
    I wonder if Sideshow had access to the real thing while developing the scaled down version.

    Here are some pics of the belt LgtSbr made for me quite a while ago (almost 2 years). The pics with me wearing the belt are reflections in the mirror so don't freak out if everything appears to be on the wrong side ;) .

    I have one of his fine belts.......I can't say enough good things. I don't have pics, but it looks identical to the ones in the pics. :)

    I am also interested in knowing this as I'll be wearing an Obi Ep IV costume for Halloween next year.

    I heard he wasn't, unfortunately. I'm looking at getting the raw materials from Tandy leather and try putting mine together. I'm gonna do an episode 3, ...episode 4 crossover.

    I think the Obi buckle was brass. Anyone have some MoM reference?

    sorry, I am not doing them at this point. I was never really happy with the pouch and would want to perfect that if I ever got back into it, not to mention I would have no way to sew the pouch together at the moment.

    I could probably do the rest of the belt, minus the pouch, but would need to order leather and buckles, I am sure I still have the hardware here as well as saber hooks. I would need 4 or more solid orders for belts before I would do that, and I would only work on OT belts at this point.

    GH - sorry I didn't get back to you, I have been pretty busy - I have saber hooks here

    I bought the buckle and saber hook from Dave a couple of months ago (so I could do my own Obi IV belt). They look great and Dave is a great person to work with.
