Does anyone know where I can get a set of the Han Solo belt buckles Used by MP? I talked to Matt and he only sells the belts and not the buckels.

I am thinking about seeing if I can design or modify some of my own. I have a Costume base set of buckels but would like something better.

..but if you keep checking back, then eventually, they will reappear.

Anything is better than Costume Base. I would avoid them all together.

Cobalt's suggestion is sound.

You could possibly make them out of aluminum sheets. I've seen good Leia belt plates made out of just that.
Also a hacksaw and steel plates would work, if you have the muscle Wink
I'm pretty sure it was MP that did a run a while back of his buckles that I picked up and I was less than impressed for the price I paid. I kind of wish I would have gone with the hacksaw route myself.

I'll talk to a friend of mine and see if he would be interested in making more buckles. Which version are you looking for?
