    Jun 12, 2008, 1:15 PM - boba fett unleashed... something i've always meant to do #1

    light him up!



    i just got 3 more ikea detolf cases (giving me 7 total now!). instead of the non lighting that i used in the older ones, i got the dioder LED sets:

    http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20119932

    these things are AWESOME! 1/4" thick disk with 10 super bright white LEDs. 4 of those disks to a pack.

    i put one of the disks under the fett unleashed, facing up. so now when i turn the cabinets on, boba lights up

    LEDs don't put off enough heat to burn anything, do they?

    yes! I was totally going to solder my own light ring but this might be an excellent alternative! Nicely done.

    yikes! what sort of lights did you use?

    these get warm, but i didn't think they got hot enough for that.

    i'll be careful, thanks for the warning!

    Now that is cool!

    YOu could also mount the lights to a small scrap of aluminum to distribute the heat. Thats what we do to some of our products. It also keeps the LEDs bright, as per degree C emitted by the LED you lose 1 lumen of brightness

    I've been wanting to do this for a while, but didn't know there was anything I could buy to do it, I was just considering jerry-rigging my own setup. Thanks for the tip!

    Very cool!
    I'd check the temperature on this if you're leaving the lights on for a while.
    LEDs burn cool, but 10 of them like that in a very confined space made of plastic might "turn up the heat" a bit.
