    What is this??...Next to the Stablizer

    Since the "Adjustment Knob" aka Stablizer has been found, http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=25695 props guys for sharing....

    I know this is nothing new, but I was wondering what the button, or additional knob, NEXT to the Stablizer is??...what's it's function? and why is it now missing on all the current packs??

    What do I mean you ask??

    THIS: ....as seen first on the Supertrooper...



    Then seen on the PrePro#1 (Starwars Chronicles book picture)



    Then on the Prepro#2 and PrePro#3 (which is the same pack as the Prepro#1



    Also on the ESB jet pack... (thanks to Official Pix for this shot)



    Thanks to Braks...
    but does not show up on the ROTJ or AOSW packs , or is "missing"????

    Well there WAS something there(in the last photo) because it appears that the base of the "button" is still bonded/glued to the pack.
    What it is I have no clue but I guess (if I can type this to make sense)it was a piece that was mistakenly left off during assembly of any extra packs.The base was bonded down but the rest of it never made it on.
    But I am sure I am wrong ...I have not stayed at a Holiday Inn lately

    In the PrePro 1 Pic, It looks like the valve of a pot. Just my opinion

    Good eye there, Alex! Who knows what that was. Some small cylinder with a lip. Maybe a piece of a pneumatic tool? I love it when something new is discovered! Thanks for sharing.

    Nice find! It's the button you push on all 12" Boba figures to launch the rocket.

    I think it's like a push button of some sort... seems functional
    and I don't think I'm the one that discovered it, I just don't think it's been discussed before..
    and no Fan-made Jet Pack has that detail on it...thought it could be added before I get ready to purchase mine .. (cough cough MOW and BM!)

    that is awesome!!!..I would say though it's more squared off...and maybe has edges, I will see what pics I have that show it better...so far the prepro 1 shot is the best..

    OK, I'll stop smarting off.

    Do you think it was the button to turn the beacon light on and off?

    Re: What is this??...Next to the Stablizer

    Same knob that's on the back of the ROTJ helmet.

    The ROTJ helmet knob looks too small to be the same item on the jet pack...just my 2 cents.

    In my 3D draw, it has a 5mm diameter. And +/- the knobs are 5mm.

    IMO

    Since we just found a knee dart and the stabiliser, perhaps this comes from the piece that those did?

    I agree..

    Maybe it's me, but I'm not seeing it either Guys???

    Not to mention there are no "ribs" on the knobs shown on the previous pack pics like on the ROTJ helmet knobs...
    and I always thought the knobs on the ROTJ helmet were the same as the Prepro#1 right red Gauntlet/(ESB) knobs....??

    Is there a better pic of the Pack maybe??

    I know this thread is starting to get a little old, but I just wanted to say that those greeblies on the back of the Jedi helmet look like those wire connectors you twist on. Kinda small maybe, but that's what they look like to me.

    Re: What is this??...Next to the Stablizer

    The "button" on the pack looks like one of those connector posts you would bind into place with a cotter pin. Dunno what you call the post, but that's what it looks like. I think I even have one or two laying around... I'll go look.
