I have to replace 4 food caps for my TPM Obi Wan Costume.

Does anyone have 4 extra staedtler liquid roller ball pen caps?

I found a pack at my local staples, I can't find them online but you might look in the actual store and see if they have some. I can check to see if they have more at mine too.

I have 8 of the pens, but when I tried to order 8 of the end caps they said there was a $25 minimum order. I wasn't about to buy that many end caps and I couldn't think of anything else I needed to order from that company. Fortunately, someone from Freedom Base had 8 complete capsules that only needed painting. Smile So if I can get ahold of 8 end caps, I can make some more capsules for someone else.

You can check the Plastruct website to locate a
local retailer of their products.

They can simply order a bag or two with their next shipment.
That's how I got mine Wink

Just checked...nothing closer than 45 minutes away. But, it looks like they sell to hobby stores mainly, and there are some of those near me. Perhaps I can get a store to order some.

The guy I purchased them from has some more,

I was very pleased with his work and you get plenty of them.

Hobby and model train shops usually carry Plastruct.

But... try a domed button. Take the pen cap to the store with you and check the size.
