89 Belt Vs. Returns Belt


I've seen yellow, gold, and bronze belts so far. Which is which?

Re: What are the differences between an 89 belt and a Returns belt?


I've a hunch the Returns belt is 1/8" wider, at 2 1/4" for the segments, but can't be sure. This is the best comparison I can come up with, and maybe other Bros have better pics of the Returns belt or maybe some of us know for sure. Color varied in the movies with different belts being shot; the best appearing to be brushed brass.

There is speculation that they re-tooled the Returns belt, but more than likely, the creative team used the same molds as in the first movie to cut costs.

Though people have their own reasons for saying that both belts were just gold, the first movie belt was chronicled as being a combination of different paints and colors.

I believe the colors are slightly different,and I don't believe either one was actually gold,but the overall belt design is the same.
The bullits on the '89 belt are closer to the buckle and more in front,while on the Returns they appear to be set away from the buckle and more on the side.
Other than that and the color,I think they're basically the same.

I've seen "Bat Shop" replicas of both and as far as I can tell there's a slight difference in the buckle but surely not enough to warrant getting both. They're so freakin' close that no-one would know for sure. Other than that I believe that the "pods" are spaced a little differently but I'm not sure on that.I honestly don't know which is which without looking at some very detailed pics.

I believe the capsules look different depending on what scene, and if you're looking at the functional, racheting belt, or the stationary stunt belt.
