Yep. That's the buckle. My gear has been in storage and I noticed pieces missing when I went to DragonCon. I was trying to find a supplier in the States to save on shipping charges. Thanks. If all goes well I'll be flightworthy again soon.

Hi, I just bought 5 from Contact Left Ltd out of the UK... good price on each, at about $8, but shipping was the killer. Ended up actually to be $13.58 each including the shipping. They have an ebay store as well as a direct web address, www.contactleft.co.uk I don't know of any way to get them over here cheaper unless someone brings them in their luggage for you.

Make sure you ask for "silver finish", as some appear to be a slightly gold tone also.

Yeah, that's Mr. Bojangles and he's a banned RL member. Purchase at your own risk.

Wow......Really !!!!!!

Why is the RL has to do with that? Is the RL guarantee every purchases made from the RL members or you personally guarantee that? Or is it just your personally attitude being a costume judge? Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I don't really care who is Mr. Bojangles is nor do I know him. I did my home work and have heard about some RL member (I don't want to throw name here) who takes years to deliver stuff and a year to deliver some claim "the most accurate suit" ever made. I don't have a year to wait to get a suit. I ordered mine from there and got it in less than a week. It looks orange, it has all the pockets that I want and the style that accurate. Go...figure..... Rolling Eyes

That site uses Google Checkout. I purchased the buckle with a credit card so I got double protection. I don't need a guarantee from some RL members.

It may sounds like I am defensive......but I am not. I just trying to help and being shut down.

Thank you RL......

Helping a newbie is one thing but throwing an attitude an another......

Relax. He was just saying to proceed with caution with that supplier.
He was banned for reasons that you probably aren't even aware of.
If you get what you purchase, then great. But if you don't, you can't say that you weren't warned.

ManHatTan,

No one is giving you any "attitude," just merely pointing out that Bojangles is banned here, and that it might not be good idea to order from him.

There are unfortunately many dealers out there who should be avoided for one reason or another. Golden Armor, Star Fortress Productions, etc. It is not uncommon for folks to warn others when people ask about them. In fact that is quite common in most of the various clubs and prop and costuming forums including the 501st, the RPF, etc.

I don't know why Bojangles was banned. I had no idea he was banned until just now. I would certainly like to know why. From what I can tell it was only a few months ago.

My apology, if I’m coming on too strong. That was not my intention.

All I did was posting something new. I did a “search” and nobody has mentioned that site yet. So I thought this will help others since nobody in the US carry that buckle.

I did more homework and sent an email to Mr. B. He did replied and also referring me to others who bought stuff from his site.

I will post more once I gather all these info together.
