    I have been looking high and low for some pics of old Ben's belt from EP4, especially the pouch on it. Does anyone have pics from FIDM or MOM regarding the belt? I need to see it from all angles and uncovered by his robe. Someone out there must have taken some pics of it. Help me anyone...you're my only hope!

    All I could get were these, nothing with the outer robe out of the way:

    It would appear that it is a plain brown belt with the rectangle buckle. You can get both at Tandy Leather.

    Thanks. I saw those pics on the COW [Crazy Old Wizards] website. Somebody must have taken pics when the costume was set up at either MOM or FIDM. There must be somebody out there who saw the entire belt. Won't somebody help out an old Jedi Master? The belt itself [the blank] is no problem, neither is the buckle. I purchased both at Tandy. The problem is the details of the belt and the pouch. I even have the correct saber hanger [purchased from Saberbelt before they closed down. Someone must have seen something......somewhere....

    I would take a look at this thread in the RL for the specifics of Obi-Wan's belt pouch.
    http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10620&highlight=ben+kenobi+belt

    Here is a costuming standards listing for all the Obi-Wan variations in the RL.

    Perhaps this can be of some help.

    Thanks for your help Bill, but unfortunately I have seen all this before. I know that someone must have taken a pic of the costume at MOM or FIDM without the robe. I did notice that there is a "D" ring and strap on the lightsaber side of his belt. There also seems to be a strap about 3 inches long with pointed ends rivited on the pouch side of the belt about 6 inches from the buckle. I also think that mounting the saber hook on the side of the belt with the buckle holes is silly, If you gain or lose weight, then the saber moves ot the right or left. It should have been mounted on the buckle side and reversed, that is my plan. Maybe not canon, but much more functional IMHO.

    Still looking for more info and pics if anyone can help. I tend to not give up when I am looking for backup info.

    I don't know of the authenticity of Video Games, but Obi-Wan's belt or a similar version is craftable in Star Wars Galaxies, and thus a shot of the model of the belt is available from that source...

    That's not an accurate Obi-wan EpIV belt.

    Lori is right. That is a Luke EP4 belt. Oh well, I guess no one was able to take pics of the belt without the robe at any of the exhibits.

    Thanks for all who tried to help.
