    But there isn't george signature inside the hat, is it normal?

    The signature was quite faint on mine - difficult to read but there was a scribble there.

    Thanks the advice on the belt Karim.
    Just interested - what reference are you using for the belt being on the outside?
    The belt is on the inside of the prototype but that may not be movie accurate. I like the idea of keeping everything inside the coat but then it does hide the scabbard. But then the belt on the outside makes the jacket look more tailored.


    Well the belt is on the outside on almost all the movie reference pics that I can find.

    Yeah it's an odd one, because in the opening scene the belt is on the outside over the right shoulder but then runs underneath the coat on the other side. It's the same in other shots I've seen too.

    Did you undo the belth by the way Karim?

    Yes I did undo the belt, it's very easy !
    Believe me Steve , the belt is on the outside !
    Think about it , the belt can't be on the shoulder and be under the coat at the same time !

    Okay Zhong I asked George about your hat.
    The hat you have is the one he picked out for his own set. He didn't bother signing it because he didn't need to see his signature on his own hat.
    If you want to return it for a signed one just let him know and he'll gladly sort that out for you.

    Okay Zhong if you're sure you're happy to live without a signed copy like everyone else has.

    Guys what do you think about the material use for the coat?
    Its not screen accurate...but much better than i expected... A dark grey color...fit very well to my sparrow
    Love the chest too
    Its made of thin wood and cover by synthetic leather...its not heavy but the color match perfect with the base!

    Zhong are you sure your hat is flexible? I mean is it flexible like silicone? I only ask because each hat should be the same according to George.

    Resin feels like plastic zhong ,I think you are confusing resin with polystone .
