Okay, so maybe I'm just being way too asinine about the whole belt clip thing, but everyone I'm seeing on eBay is going for about $13-$18 after shipping fees. Now, this is one of the last items I have on my list to purchase to complete my entire ensemble, but does anyone know of a good place other than eBay to purchase one of these bad boys? My costume is that of a Generic Old Republic Jedi, so I need one of the Covertec clips, but I really just don't want to spend so much money on a little piece of plastic. So yea, please give a noob some insight about where I should look to purchase one of these so I can save a few books...like I said, maybe I'm being too picky about this, but I really would rather not spend $16 on a little piece of plastic that is a lightsaber clip.

There may be less expensive places, but I will say that the covertec clip is not really cheap. It actually feels pretty solid and holds the saber properly, which is important. It is worth $13 IMO. I got mine here:

Sweet action, I never actually noticed that they sell the Covertec clips there. I'll just buy mine from there, since I'm buying some parts from them to convert my MR Obi-Wan. Awesome, thanks Rob!

As dumb as it may seem, being the last thing you need, the longer you wait to get one, the harder they will be to get. I say pay the price and just get it.

Thanks for the link. You can never have enough of these, and its always nice to have a backup. Obi-Wan forgot to mention losing these, cuz if you do, how are you going to hold your lightsaber in the first place?! lol.

BTW......

Get the machined covertec buttons from TCSS. The aluminium buttons are far better than the plastic ones.

TCSS is your friend.

They were used to clip cell phones to your belt.
