(image forwarded by the manufacturer, but originally sent to them by a Fetthead. A single order is for one (1) unit. to complete an ESB EE-3 Carbine, you will need to place an order for two pieces.)
I will add photos and more info later but since I was contacted just now, and the window given to me is so small, I am posting now just in case.
This is for:
FAIL SAFE SWITCH INSERT
PART NUMBER GW011
(as used in The EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
as the center square Stock Greeblie on Boba Fett’s EE-3 Carbine)
Only one piece will come per unit ordered. Two shown here for reference only.
The company that makes (Live Electronics) them is still currently making them, however their Board has elected to cease production permanently as of August 6, 2019!
That does not leave much time to order. The manufacturer reached out to me today being that I have placed a large order with them previously and cleared the path for them to allow private sales as these parts are used normally as a fail safe device for industrial purposes. I was told of the decision to cease production and the deadline date to order.
It has been confirmed that bulk/quantity discounts can be had once the order has reached 20 units and also at 40 units. The actual amount of these quantity discounts will not be something outrageous, but will save each of us a few bucks if we can attain the threahholds. I will update this listing when I have the total quantity of the order AND HAVE PLACED THE ORDER.
I am posting a sign up here. I will attempt to update as often as possible. I really don’t know what sorts of interest there is for these but as this will be LAST CALL FOR THESE... EVER (I’m looking at you, Lucasfilm!) I will be organizing this “Limited Run” in this way:
1) This run is for those wanting a Unimax Fail Safe Switch Insert (just the red piece used on the prop), in brand new condition, and the price is for ONE PIECE. Boba Fett’s EE-3 Carbine from ESB requires TWO of these, one for each side.
2) This run is for those outside of the UK. or Europe.
Cost savings should be great for those outside of the UK. or Europe.
Because the manufacturer is located in England, it will not save you any money to order through me if you also live in the UK. or in other countries close to the U.K. In fact, it is highly likely to be less expansive for you if you order direct from the manufacturer, however, if you have any doubts remember, AUGUST 6th, 2019 IS THE LAST DAY TO ORDER AND PAY THEM and their response time to messages is not always great, so DO NOT WAIT until then to order!
3. Since August 6th is the last day to order and pay them, I WILL BE PLACING THIS GROUP ORDER ON AUGUST 5TH, 2019. No exceptions!
4. Since I am placing this order on August 5th, 2019, I REQUIRE FULL PAYMENT FROM YOU BY AUGUST 4th, 2019.
5A. The price for each GW011 Insert last time was around £35 plus shipping to the USA. As a bulk order, I am going to bipass my slingshot helper in England and just have the whole package sent direct to me this time and I will distribute these from the USA. I am expecting that to be an additional $80 USD total for the whole shipment. As such, with the conversion to USD, I am expecting these to come in at approximately $45.00 USD Each plus shipping from me to you. This amount will go down once all bulk discounts are known and applied.
5B. I will ship these out to USA people via USPS Priority Mail Small Fixed Rate Box, which is $7.95. So your total cost owed will be:
5A x quantity you want ordered + 5B
To order, DO NOT leave a message here in this post. To order, send me a payment with:
Your RPF screen name
Number of units to order
Your mailing address
Payment must include funds to cover the total number of GW011 Inserts you want and the $7.95 USPS Shipping Fee.
****I should have mentioned before that I do have dogs, and not that they will be anywhere near these Unimax inserts while the inserts are at my house, if you happen to be allergic to dogs, please let me know by PM and I will arrange for the container to be opened at my place of employment and your order will be shipped by me from there. Also, if you are allergic to raw awesomeness, I cannot help you with this order as my house and car and yes, even my job (while I am there), with likely be lethal to you. Seriously, if you are allergic to dogs, please PM me.****
If you are international, but not in the Europe, contact me for a shipping quote from the USA to you as I am not sure which way would ultimately save you the most money.
You may send payment to me either via Paypal or now through Venmo.
Send me a PM here at theRPF if you intend to use Venmo so I can give you my non-html-friendly Venmo account name.
If you intend to pay for your order via PayPal, DO NOT LEAVE YOUR ORDER AS A COMMENT HERE NOR SEND ME A PM HERE AT THERPF. I am assuming most will pay by PayPal, in which case please just send me the payment via PayPal with my requested information above. Do not leave a message in this thread saying you want one; the only way to ensure getting one is to send me a payment with the info I requested above.
