    Hunting an illusive item...

    Hi TDHRs,
    I come to you today wondering about an illusive piece to my fett suit. I'm having some trouble tracking down an item that #1 aren't commonly talked about lately to my knowledge and #2 the recource I have never has it in stock. I'm hoping one of my fellow Fetts can point me in the right direction.

    Searching for the rangefinder light/circuit board thingy! The kind that fits inside the RF and is powered by a very small camera battery or hearing aid style battery. I've seen them around a long time ago spuratically, but I could never get my hands on one. Can anyone direct me to a source?

    Hyperdyne has been out of stock for over 6 months and is non-responsive to communications so I wondered if there was anyone else more reliable?


    Also: just remembered about another something I cannot find....
    I have a subscription to Star Wars Insider and of course it being a new subscription and ordered well over a month and a half ago, I still have yet to get anything from them. I've searched my newstands and cannot find a copy of the Fett edition! (most Recent) If anyone can get their hands on an extra copy and wouldn't mind sending to me I'd cover all the fees and be MOSt greatful! Hate to ask about this one! I'm very dissapointed in both insider and my local and normally available book stores! Hope someone has one!

    If so please drop me a PM or a post! thanks guys and gals , jon

    Did you check with Hyperdyne Labs for the RF circuit board?

    For the lights in my helmet i used a eyeglass kit display. walgreens might have them. i just wired it up in my helmet. That could be an inexpensive way to do it....and as for the magazine. i can see if there is an extra copy. Let me know if you want it.

    Yep, I mentioned that. They haven't responded to emails when I checked last in December. I guess I can try it again, but I dont expect to hear from him.

    And SOLOCHASER, YEp, I'll take it if you can locate one! thanks for replying guys!

    sincerely, jon

    Woops, I really must read posts more thoroughly before replying.

    Maybe this thread will help, there's a super-cheap blinky light thing you can buy from Ramsey Electronics...

    I have one of the old Bobo (former TDH member) setups. I'ts all self-inclusive, no wires. However, it doesn't fit in my FPH housing, so I was going to sell it anyway. It comes with the two standard red LEDs on top (single-blink, back and forth), and a connection for the inside lens light. It's mercury-switch driven, I also have 2 extra batteries.

    I'm asking $80 for the kit. Anyone interested?
