    I got a pair, they're pretty cool for $12. Do they actually match the ones in the movies, though?

    Look for these in the junkyard section.

    They seem more of an idealized style that a stormtrooper might carry.

    The binders on Chewbacca in ANH are smooth brass cuffs, but Luke's in ROTJ are silver with this gear sort of shape.

    So what stormtrooper is that on the packaging? Looks a little like a Rubies to me?

    Those look pretty neat. I'll be going to DisneyLand in October, I'll have to see if I can find a set!

    My neighbors were at Disney this weekend and I sent them a text to grab a set for me. I'll have them in my hands (and on my hands) by the end of the day. :p

    I bought a pair yesterday. They're a lot heavier than I expected them to be.

    So, is it inappropriate to ask if these are bedroom approved?

    Here is a closer look at the Imperial Binders I picked up this weekend Disneyland:
    [​IMG]
    Considering they are plastic, they seem pretty solid and are heavier then you would expect plastic to be
    [​IMG]
    They unclip by pressing down the square button, the only issue I see is the plastic clip insert. This is the only piece that seems flimsy and could break easily. Maybe I can modify to use magnets, this might be a better option
    [​IMG]
    The both cuffs are held together by what a appears to be a straight rod that allows them to both spin fully and freely.
    [​IMG]
    My wrists are approx 8inchs in diameter and they fit very snug, but if you remove the foam and replace with a thinner piece they can fit larger wrists.
    The only thing I would change in is the paint job to be more accurate to the binders you see being placed on Chewbacca in ESB or those that are placed on Luke in ROTJ that have a distressed silver/dark gun metal grey to them.

    Hope these pictures helped you decide to pick these up or not.

    Anyone willing to pick one and shipping to Germany, without the markup from the junkjard-offer?

    @Lichbringer. Haha. Closer to 7 3/4. The size of my wrist & forearms make putting on my Boba Fett Gauntlets difficult.
    No problem on the pictures. Visual aids always help me out, especially when determining to buy something.
    The price in the junkyard is actually a fair price considering after taxes they come out to about $15. When I initially purchased them without looking at the price tag, I was expecting to pay $20-25. Its worth it. Just a bummer you have to pay for shipping from the States. But it seems like most Star Wars merchandise is costing you guys over seas a bit more from the retailers. I am curious if they are sold in Disneyland Paris so you can obtain from someone a bit closer.
