Would love to know where you guys got the information as to the sparklets being used in the movie... and not the Micronix (Micro Flame) as it is listed in the parts of Star Wars as identified info.

Do you guys have anything that backs that up, or is it just your opinion?

I saw it on RPF ... some time ago (I am not sure about topic name or link)

UPDATE:

I found it Wink

http://www.thereplicapropforum.com/f9/han-gun-belt-cylinder-discovery-jawa-torch-134929/

There is statement from lonepigeon (it is guy behind Parts SW)

Quote:
The Han belt cylinder actually isn't related to the Jawa torch besides being the same size. The belt cylinder is a Sparklet cartridge for a soda syphon. It's a CO2 cartridge. The vintage Sparklets cartridges (sometimes called 'bulbs') are the correct greenish color. The Sparklet bulb holders were later used on the AT-AT driver helmets. Other Sparklets pieces were also used as set dressing etc.


Myself, I am against unconfirmed information and I am always for "common sence way" ... but this case ... looks good -> same color, same shape, same size Wink

The Parts of Star Wars hasn't been updated since 2000, so don't hold your breath. Most of the info is undocumented/unsourced and some of it is now known to be wrong. The bowcaster page is all wrong info; wrong make and model crossbow, wrong single point scope version, etc. Today almost all the parts are known.

It's still a very useful site but it should be taken with a grain of salt.

I'm curious to see what will happen to that site and if there any plans to update it. It might be a good project for us to take on.

Anyone have a good lead on ESB tools or should I just check out ebay? I didn't see any on the doopydoos site.

Thanks

Google Corellian Exports. Send him an email and he will get back to you with a price. Either that or eBay. Actually, just checking now, he also sells on eBay...

Well they're certainly easy enough to reproduce. If you want close enough, you can go the route that Bob suggested for the CO2 cylinder (or get mine for $8 shipped), and the relay looking tools are pretty simple, basically small boxes with prongs. Here's a closeup of mine, before I did some more tweaking to get them closer to screen accurate:



would it be too much to ask for the size of the relays?
Thanks in advance

I've modelled mine in eMachineShop





the cylinder turned out pretty well, I think:



I haven't printed the relays, yet. When I do, I'll let you know and maybe you want me to send the .stl file so you can print your own.

That works. They're close enough where no-one would ever notice. You only see the very top peeking out of a pouch anyways.

And what about this?



It has the same measures. Just add some modding (trimming, cutting, priming, sanding, etc) and...

I'll do it and tell you later. Wink
