PostPosted: Wed Feb 17, 2010 3:29 pm    Post subject: Han Solo Belt? Reply with quote

I'm considering submitting my Han Solo ESB as a "face" costume, but it needs a couple minor tweaks--namely, the belt tools (which I think I've seen kits for) and the regular belt.

My belt is a 2-prong, 2-hole-row belt. I noted in the minimum requirements that it should be a 2-prong, 3-hole-row belt.

Anyone know where to find one of these?? I've never seen a belt with 3 rows of holes and 2 prongs on the buckle.


I should also probably buy a new gun belt as my droid caller clip snapped off (and I"m not sure if I was able to put it back on) and I had to fix one of the holster clips with Mighty Putty after my metal blaster proved too heavy and it snapped!

from what I've seen is people get the three prong belts and snap the middle prong off.

I wouldn't feel too bad. Costumers are very detail oriented. Sometimes it's easy to overlook the simplest or most obvious answers. Razz

True enough! Okay, 3-hole belt ordered. Looking into droid caller/tool kits and a new gun belt. If I am not mistaken, that SHOULD do me for the Han Solo costume.

Well, that and getting rid of this pesky gut of mine. Need to get to work on that.

Yeah, that's where I ordered mine from, though I ordered it through amazon. Same price, though.

Tools can be ordered through Corellin Exports. Droid caller it depends on how fancy you want to get, and gunbelt - I got mine through MPproductions. Very accurate - Very expensive. PM me if you need anything please.

I got my belt tools and droid caller from Corellian Exports - nice they are too. I made the belt myself, with some hardware bought from MP. Blaster is from Doopy-Doos.

Yeah, I'll be ordering the belt tools from Corellian Exports, soon. I just discovered I ordered a brown belt instead of black by accident, so Nu-Life leather color here I come!....but I'm almost there.

Today I ordered ESB belt tools and droid caller at Corellian Exports. Except the buckles: Are there differences between ESB / ANH / ROTJ belts? After all the tools differ..
Most pictures show ROTJ or ANH, but I need ESB reference Smile

The difference between Hans Belts outside of the tools are very slight... most noticable is the buckles with minor exceptions in the holster that only a handfull would notice anyways:

Buckels images are property of MP productions I believe... and are accurate for the most part.


However there is also a start difference in the ROTJ holster compaired to the ANH and ESB:

ROTJ's holster has a nice groove around the base of the holster, not the belt... just the holster:



and another shot that shows the groove:




ANH and ESB has no holster groove.. the buckels where reversed for the two movies front to back:
