    Aug 29, 2004, 11:34 PM - ROTJ Gauntlet flamethrower buttons #1

    What kinda buttons did you use overtop of His flamethrower block? I seen some at radio shack (my radio shack is small), a electronics shop and lowe's but there not even close and way to big and stick up way to high.

    Also, does anyone know if there is a variation of ROTJ Boba Fett where He has the flip switches on the right side gauntlet.

    Thanks in advance.

    On the right guantlet, there are supposed to be those toggle switches. If you look at the reference CD, you can tell there are two little holes on the right guantlet. That is were those toggle switches go. On the left guantlet is where the push buttons got. I am not sure what size you want to go with. I got mine at Radio Shack, the came in a four pack, two red and two black. They will seem big at first, just drill the big enough holes and there you go.

    I also used the radioshack buttons in the same four pack. Although not 100% accurate, they're the closest thing I've found, and they look great once installed.

    I'm sorry for the old bump, but does anybody have a part number for these radio shack push buttons? These red/black buttons are all I need for my gauntlets and the search is driving me crazy right now. and just to make sure it's these?
