Hey everyone, I'm currently building a replica of the desktop comlink seen in Savi's Workshop at Galaxy's Edge, and I could use some help identifying a few components.

The base is a Victor Champion adding machine, and the speaker is obviously a Shure 55 microphone grille. There's a few other pieces, isolated in the second image, that I'm still trying to identify. I'll dig around Apex once they reopen, but in the meantime I thought someone here might recognize them.

Any help / avenues of inquiry would be great:

What I've got so far:

The only piece I know for sure was custom was the keypad, which I have started modeling to have printed in steel:

Not to sure about the size, but the part next to the keypad looks like some sort of instant-camera cartridge.

(Fuji instax Mini for example).

I don’t think it looks like a insta picture cartridge as those are pretty solidly put together. This piece has some sort of plexi or glass that slides into the piece. You can see the gaps on the side and the lip that holds the glass in.

Sure, I might be wrong there. It's just that the overall shape and the protruding foiltongue reminded me of an insta film cartridge.
Might be vintage models like Jollylook or Rolleiflex.
Somehow it's hard to find pictures of those. Somebody happen to have those at hand?

Agree on the LCD screen resemblance - first thing that came to mind. Maybe from an alarm clock with a backlight behind it - what looks like the cut off ends of red and black wires are visible just behind the silver tab.

Is the lower part of the portion above the microphone just a piece of repurposed lumber? Can't tell if the texture is wood grain or just other damage.


Edit: here's a meter / tester lcd module with a similar shape:

Bingo. It's got to be something along this track. Thank you!

I'm not sure if the big hunk on top of the mic and under the counter (?) could be a block of wood, or an old tray of some kind. Going to try to pull more reference of the back once the park reopens. (WDW and DL both have one of these, but the DL version is more weathered than the pictured WDW prop.)

EDIT: Also, for reference, this LCD would be ~1.5" x 2.5" in size.

It may be just the cover. That lever on the side moves back and forth to automatically supply hot water from the boiler according to the thermostat that’s calling. Some of the older ones have a window that shows that lever inside.

That turned out awesome! Any luck identifying/finding the top part you were trying to ID?
No luck yet on that or the LCD module, and I also haven't specifically identified the disks on the bottom (~20mm in diameter), though I strongly suspect they are vintage transistors.

Yeah I think you're spot on about the transistors, hope you find the other two. I've been very interested in the more obscure galaxy's edge stuff recently so I might poke around for a bit as well.

Still have yet to identify additional pieces concretely, but I do have a few new reference pics to help the hunt along. (I'm now convinced the large platform at the top is some kind of hood, and not just a lump of wood.)

I posted about this on another thread, so I thought it was time for a little project update with the Aurebesh keypad STL file for anyone who wants to print one for their own personal use.
