Research of the shoulder-mounted magazine pouches from the "Move Along" Trooper and "Look Sir, Droids!" Trooper
 
click on each trooper to hear him speak!

The shoulder pouch seen on the "Move Along" trooper and "Look Sir, Droids!" trooper has the same basic shape of the standard pouch. However it has a much more complex strapping system which inlcudes shorter flaps, long, thin, leather straps and leather strap retaining loops. This pouch also has a "4th" pouch; a small tool pouch located near the bottom of the last elongated pocket.
Both canvas and leather versions of this pouch are available. Most of the canvas versions available are replicas as authentic canvas pouches of this kind are not easily found and quite expensive. The leather versions are more rare yet. After a year of searching I have only seen 2 complete leather sets and two incomplete leather sets. All were authentic, German MP-40 pouches.
