    electroluminescent mando?

    anyone ever thought about decking out their mando with EL strips?
    found some here:http://www.sciplus.com/singleItem.cfm/terms/11260

    thought it might be an interesting look...

    found a better source for lighting http://www.vibelights.com/index.html

    im gonna have to experiment with this when my bucket comes in

    it's not exactly common, but I wouldn't really say it's rare either to see a mando with EL wire in their visors. It's an idea most often attributed to the RCs

    I remember seeing a trooper of some sort... I forget exactly what he was called... but it looked like a biker scout only it was dark dark blue or even black... not a shadow scout but similar... and he had the inside of his lens outlined in some kind of neon light. I think he was a seatrooper? Not sure but I know it was something water related! hehe :P Anyway it was AWESOME looking. Would be pretty sweet to see a custom mando do that

    Yes! That's it!!! Thank you for posting the right name of it. I hear he's the only Scuba Trooper in the 501st! It's so cool looking!

    I get the same thing from the Deece 15s side arm I carry and that's bad enough, I imagine having it hum in your bucket must be irritating to say the least! Nice pics though.

    Wow you are making me want to do one on my helmet for when I get it. Though the republic commandos do it it does not hurt for Mandalorians to do it. I am still trying to decide for a color if I do get one. Here is an image color of my helmet. It is not a helmet I got but an edit someone did for me.
