    Over the years, I have been absolutely amazed at the RPF's ability to identify some of the most obscure items... so here is one I have for you.

    This is Storm Shadow's belt buckle from G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. It is on a 2" leather belt. Beyond that, the photos pretty much say it all. I have never seen anything quite like it. It somewhat reminds me of a seatbelt buckle without the outside plastic housing, but nothing I have found matches. Can anyone ID this part?

    Wow... that took all of 7 minutes and got further than I have gotten in months! The definitely appears to be the right design and style... now just seems like I need to find the model. Wow... and I thought this was going to be a tough one for you guys...

    Ran across that in a search for something close to the Rocketeer pack buckles. Bookmarked it cause I'm thinking about using them. Firefighter harness buckle but parachute and ejection seat buckles are very similar.

    That is definitely the buckle... just turned around backwards on Storm Shadow. Man, I LOVE this place! Why do I bother searching for anything... just bring it to the board!

    That is a quick release buckle used on many US made parachutes.

    They can find a little buckle, but they can't find this scope. :(

    Cmon' guys. It's not anywhere near an A.S.I. or a Model 7 scope. Look closely.

    Love that pic btw. Shame there wasn't any more taken of that one.

    My apologies Art, for the derail.

    Yup, it is the same one. I found someone willing to sell just the buckle and should have one in hand shortly. Again, can't believe how quickly you nailed that. Love it!

    So, the photos I posted in the initial post were of the Storm Shadow costume as displayed at Comic Con. Here is a publicity shot from the movie compared to the airlock buckle Finhead posted. Clearly, the belt buckle was accidentally turned backwards at Comic Con so you are seeing the underside of the buckle, but in the movie, he wears to buckle properly.

    I have a few extra upper harness buckles. I was planning to sell a few. Let me know if you want dibs on one.

    Same buckle, different company. Wildland Warehouse prices seem high, but I don't know how much the buckle is by itself.

    I guess all the cool buckles are pricey or non-existent.

    So, just an update. My airlock buckle finally came in today and it is an exact match! Thank you, RPF!

    I just recieved my UD Replicas Daredevil suit, and I believe this is the same buckle used on his belt. I'll need to double check to be sure, but of the top of my head, it looks right. The one on the DD suit from UDR is a cast piece, so I may want to upgrade to the metal one.
