    Ok finally found a light like the one carried by Ripley and Bishop on ebay last night! I was so excited I showed my wife today and she looked at me as I explained what it was and said "another flashlight?" didnt kill my excitement at all!
    its a Brinkmann with five settings and it works! It has a smooth top and smooth bottom here's pics.

    Thanks should get it this week. Hopefully it looks as good in person as the photos. Is it sad that this is the highlight of my weekend?

    I actually had that back in the day in my car.
    I didn't know the connection to the film when I had it.

    Yeah I belive you can get the tubes. Also bad news about the light.....the seller now says they can't find the light! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will find it.

    I may be synthetic but I'm not stupid!
    Got the light and it's in excellent shape! Very little to no scratches. Plastic lenses are clear and not clouded. The date is from 1977. I was eight when this was made! Now I need a way to display it. Any ideas? Also was it painted in the film? Here's pics.

    WOW 1977! Hold on to it for another few years and it will be vintage :)

    I put batteries in......6 d cells and it lights up! Everything works! Not bad for something 38 years old! Need to make a display and hang it.

    Well, at first I thought you could display it with a HK VP-70, or a laptop computer like the one Bishop uses. But either of those would certainly cost some money and probably be hard to find.

    So I thought you could make up a phony data plate or instruction booklet for it, using the Weyland-Yutani name & logo. Wouldn't be screen accurate, but it might give a better hint as to what it's from.

    Could hang some Bishop dogtags with it to help identify the item with the character-

    I like the data plate idea. I just made a display plaque for my Stormtrooper blaster using clear window film and metal flashing. So I may make one using same method.

    Ohi again does anyone know or has anyone rewired their light so the spotlight and fluorescent tube come on at the same time? I was directed to a link where a person did this but used a separate switch. Is there another way without using a separate switch?
