Casio MQ-1 Vintage Calculator questions

Hi all,

Saw a vintage Casio MQ-1 Vintage Calculator, so thought I'd find out more about it :)

How many members have one of these? Are there many around, and is someone doing remakes?

Great find - thanks for sharing! Not sure if posting the link is kosher, but it shows up in a search on eBay so need for the link anyway.

Hi TinSnips,
Actually, a portion of the TDH rules states:

LIVE AUCTIONS

Posting information and/or links to a live online auction (i.e. Ebay, Yahoo!, etc) is prohibited except when you are the seller in the auction.


Just a heads-up for you. (y)

there's actually a good reason for not allowing Auctions to be posted if they aren't yours...


It really screws over the guy that found it and wants to get it cheap when everyone knows about it.
It drives the price up unnecessarily.
That's why.

the Calculator contains 3 found parts (so far)
1. The keypad for the left gauntlet
2. The "guts" for the back of the helmet
3. the battery door cover for the gauntlet.

i have had a few. Ended up selling all of mine as i needed money for bills n such at the random times ive sold them, except the one i dismantled to use the parts as ILM did on my own personal suit. I do plan to get another one to keep intact.

To answer your questions, They are hard to find, but not SUPER RARE, they do come up on e-bay from time to time. They usually range from about $85-$150 depending. I have seem them go for as little as $35 bucks on occasion though....timing is everything i suppose lol.

A few prop makers here (including myself) make replica key pads and circuit boards off of the real MQ-1.

It really is pretty cool how they used so many parts off of models and electronics for alot of the suits in the Star Wars universe. Everything from IG-88's head, to the "t-bits" on biker scouts bi-cep armor. So many things, and very cool to discover, and even cooler to obtain and use on your own suit!
