    Nemrod holster? let's discuss

    I know this has been talked about before, but I really want to make sure that this Nemrod holster is what was really used on screen.

    The holster that I just recieved has the small pocket for the knife.

    On all images I have seen of the ESB holster, I have not seen that small pocket.

    I tried to get the same type of lighting on this and if it were to have the pocket then there will be more the the area hightlighted. But no line or anything.

    what ya think?

    ok - one more and I'll shut up. It does look like it has the small loop for the knife, but no pocket. Maybe this screen version has a longer knife. Check out the bespin dude on the earlier images, it looks like he has some type of area where the end of the knife rests.

    Here's another pic of ESB Fett

    I don't see it.
    Perhaps there was a different Nemrod holster available at that time that didn't have the knife option.

    Or they just modified the Nemrod and casted ones used for the film. But that wouldn't make sense if they modified it. Went to that trouble of getting rid of it. But still left the Nemrod logo on the side.

    Looks to me like the knife holder is there. Who knows if these holsters were molded and copied from an original nemrod or if they were all originals?

    Doh, Danielle beat me to it.

    It almost looks like they built over the logo to cover it up causing a slight bulge. That would explain why it flares outward as you work your way down the holster.

    But I'm not sure I see any place to put a knife.

    I agree with Gonzo Fett, why would they even bother removing the pocket and keep the logo? I know where going for accuracy here but if we can't see if it's there or not, does it really matter? besides, my pouch hangs in front of the holster just like the picture above. I have an MLC holster with the pocket.

    It matters to me. I have waited a long time to get my Fett right. And I'll continue to wait till I'm happy with it.

    I have already paid over 300 dollars on my ESB holster Fiberglass and all. I dont want spend more on it.

    I wanna get it right. I'm trying not to do any upgrades in the future. But I know I will.

    Side by side they look like they might even be different holsters.
    The portion of the holster that lines the barrel of the gun is a completely different shape. If it is the same one, they definately trimmed part of it out. Namely the knife holder.

    Re: Nemrod holster? let's discuss

    Yeah - it's starting to look like they slice it off. This stuff is prett easy to cut with a blade. theres a solid wall inside the pocket, so it would be pretty easy to do.

    I just need to reaffirm that this is was done in 1979

    Re: Nemrod holster? let's discuss

    HAHAH yea its the left gauntlet on the right side of the screen cap good eye!

    I still disagree that this is the correct blaster. There is a nemrod that ended on the 23rd that has a more clsoely looking handle. I would say judging by the length of the barrel tip that they cut the holsters shorter and removed the knife sheath. It also looks like they removed part of the clip or put some type of button where the hole was.

    Unless you get access to the archives I guess we'll only be able to speculate.

    $300 . I wouldn't let a knife pocket hold me back from completing my costume but that's me. after looking at the close up photos, it looks to me like it is NOT there but I'm not about to cut it off at this point.

    Were talking about the holster, not the blaster.

    The blaster is another story.

    Re: Nemrod holster? let's discuss

    looks like it was cut off.

    i have another question not quite realted to the topic, but looking at those clear pictures, i noticed that the rifle scope is mounted the wrong way, i saw that in a bunch of esb photos already, any input why that is? shouldn't Boba Fett know better??

    Yeah the flash tube was inserted two different ways for the ESB rifle. In some images you could see those little wired things in the inside and some it's all hollow. Personally, I like the hollow look.

    Ok back to the topic. anyone else with ideas, images, high rez images, clearere images, etc....

    Let's get it right before I slice this front pocket.

    In my opinion the knife part looks like it was cut off. That is a great find man! And good eye Bountyone on catching that guant I just have to ask, did you try the spear gun out?

    well, as far as I can see, the knife sheath isn't there.... But I simply can't see them slicing it off for the movie. They wouldn't bother. I think we just have the wrong holster. Honestly, I would stick with what you have for now and not mod it, until we find the right one. Keep in mind that it is likely that the holsters weren't made by nemrod, but made for them by someone else, so it is possible that the basic holster design was used for a number of companies.

    Re: Nemrod holster? let's discuss

    I am convinced it is a Nemrod holster due to the triangle type logo you can see on the ESB image in Turo's first post.
    But check out all these Nemrod spear guns from a Nemrod catalog from the 70's

    Isn't is possible they used a different model holster than the one we are thinking?
    Just seems unlikely that ALL of them would have the knife holder option. Or even a later model from the late 60's?

    All I know is someone here is beating me on my nemrod on evilbay grrrr......^_~ grats if you beat me on it.


    C'est la vie I will wait til the Nemrod talk slows a bit and the competition on one lessens.....


    As for the holster, that is a good point Gonzo, they could have used a different holster with the nemrod in question, but without seeing them we are at a loss on knowing if that is the case.
