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?

Good find.

With LED being in everything that lights up these days , can you still buy the tubes for the fluro?

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.

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-
