    My wild guesses: Possibly a climbing gear or some sort of backpacking clip?

    It looks like the "male" end of the buckle is sewn into the cape.

    I'm sure some one could mock up something that looked like this buckle. I don't know how functional it would be... but in the preproduction photos of Boba with the cape draped over his chest he reminds me of Clint Eastwood. That would be the way to wear it.

    I think it shouldn't be too hard to make something. There are pics from a couple of angles... and the size of the collar armor/ shoulder studs might help scaling it. I'd love to see it done.

    You could probably rig up a way to make a scratchbuilt clip that actually works... with rare earth magnets. They make small flat ones that could be hidden under the clip and inside the buckle.

    I think the holes that appear in the back may suggest that originally some sort of webbing was attached.

    I'm here! I did some research on this, but sadly with no results. I might try to do a 3D model of the clip in the near future.

    I've been searching for this baby for a while too, but nothing close. Gotta try and get this 3D and just use it for looks. Used it for now, till we find the real deal.

    I would love too, but there are some parts that I find hard to do (at least for me). I did some of the greeblies and small parts, then did the jetpack (sadly the body is not 3D printable yet), and now I'm working on the helmet, which is 95% done.

    @Fett4reaL I'll message a local 3d modeler friend and see if he'd be up to making a printable substitute.

    Arturo asked me to do some work on this & see what I could come up with. Hard to see all aspects & get the sizing right. This is my starting point to make refinements & looking for some input on this at this time.

    What I came up with for rough sizing is 9 mm x 32 mm x 32 mm.

    I found this clip a while back, but it's too small and not accurate, but it's pretty close to that clip family.
