    Dec 17, 2012, 2:36 AM - Jetpack dot? ...What is it? #1

    Hi guys ... not sure if this has been discussed or not but i noticed while watching ESB on the big screen that there is what appears to be a white dot or possibly a metallic one (or a Borden?) just above and behind the stabiliser on the RHS of the jetpack .... i have never seen this painted on in any paintups on the threads .... nor mentioned anywhere. Its definitely not a reflection as its consistently visible in all lights (the gallery section ESB Boba has it clearly showing but on the video the best view is as Boba follows Vader and Calrissian from the torture room to the elevator ...

    Anyone shed any light on what it might be?.. does it appear on the ROTJ pack?.... is it a decal and if so why does no one seem to put it on their packs?

    That is a turbine adjuster capacitor exhausting engine debugging shaft.
















    Just kidding!

    It's just a white paint dot, nothing more! Some links showing the white dot:

    When I painted my old MOW jetpack I used a "dot" that was a cutout from a piece of paper that I had punched a hole in with a hole punch tool. (sorry that sentence is so long. lol!)

    I put some glue on the back and placed it on.
