Hi all, just wondering if anyone can help identifying this Yoda Belt, it has the mold mark on the saber attachment but the pin doesn't stick up through the opener?, many thanks

Hello and welcome to TIG.

It would really help if you could upload a photo for us to see.

In the meantime you can find information about Yoda's belt here http://www.imperialgunnery.com/belts.htm

Many thanks for the reply, for some reason it's not letting me post the pic , I've checked the id section and it looks like a LL one but the connector pin doesn't sit proud when fastened

Welcome to TIG  welcome  Your connecting pin might be a mould defect where the pin came out shorter. Check out this thread for some options on posting pics: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t8415-posting-photos-to-the-forum-and-other-useful-topics

It is labeled on the main page as ledy but that is a bit dated. We need to adjust the label as it is not ledy specific. The ledy figure came with this belt, but so did any figure with the old guide coo 3 mark which can be found in kenner baggies as well. This means it is authentic but may not be ledy. Not sure these belts can be identified as either kenner or ledy once removed from figure as I don't remember there being a difference in plastic or paint once separated on its own.

As far as the main site label:

@Trappedtexan Agree, the V5 entry needs an update. Also noticed on our V5 what looks like an EPM on the female part of the clasp. Lots of differences between the male parts of the other clasps too.


Re: Heath's belt - it does look mostly like our current V5. I've highlighted the pic for a couple of observations:




See the raised 'dot' on the belt strap near the pin. What is this? Unfortunately we can't compare this to our current V5 as the belt on our pic is not fully open.

See the 'sinkage' on the tip of the pin that forms a slight basin. This might indicate a factory error short pour, or I don't know. Just speculating here. I haven't seen this on other belt pins.

Along with Mat's recent belt which I'll add soon, I'm sure there are a good few more variations out there.
