    Technically Jango does not have functional LED's. They are LED shaped bumps painted the same color as the RF. If you want functional LED's then they would be blue.

    Exactly. Jango has no functional leds.

    I too have gone for the blue LEDs in my Jango RF, but if the real prop didn't have LEDs, then how can we know what color they are?
    Couldn't the LEDs be red like Boba's, or UV or whatever?

    Just throwing it out there....

    Im guessing they are extrapalating out the fact that bobas mandables are red, and his leds are red. Jango's blue so his led's are blue.

    Though, I though the rf stalk also blinked when he communicated with slave 1, as does bobas, it would be the same ..... Ok. I donno.

    He has two bumps that are painted blue. They're not real LED's but if you wanted real LED's wouldn't it make sense for them to be blue like they are painted?

    This is something that never crossed my mind! Yes, they are suppose to be blue bumps. If you want actual LEDS, RadioShack sells some blue LEDs rated at about 3,000 mcd (that is VERY bright!) But they have a clear lens. I would suggest getting a blue permanent marker and color over them ... it actually works really well.

    I'm not disagreeing with your logic, its sound.
    Lots of things can & do make sence, just drawing a line in the sand between conjecture & fact.

    Like I said, I use Blue LEDs too, & they look great.

    Once I saw a Blue LED that had a dark Blue look to it when not powered-up.
    I have never seen them since, but looked just like small dark blue "bumps".
    Anyone elce seen them?

    While we are on LEDs what the heck does "MCD" translate to in Lum or candle power?

    MCD stands for MilliCanDelas.


    Therefor....

    1000 millicandelas = 1 candela

    Easy when you know what the TLA is.

    (TLA = Three Letter Acronym )

    I love acronyms! I have an ESB Fett, but I also like the look of ROTJ and SE. I got my BF helmet from TF, and almost got AFFO$ to paint it. My armor is from HS but the cod is FP, but I heard MoW and BM make awesome armor sets, and I love my RT gauntlets. My jumpsuit is a BM but I heard SGB makes good ones too. I used to have an HS blaster. My boots are CA.

    I have LED's in my RF. The previous owner installed them. He put 2 blue flickering LED's on top, and a red and flashing yellow LED on the bottom. People seem to like it. Cool stuff!

    I put two led, one purple and one clear red light, blinking of course, they look cool. i just need one more steady led for the target section of the RF.
