    Just looking for some solid reference on Luke's little Dagobah lamp that Yoda tried to jack. Thinking I might like to have a machined one on the shelf.:thumbsup

    Thanks.

    A few years back there was a research thread on it but I don't think much info was gleaned.

    I think I remember that. I plan on machining mine so I'm really just looking for a few good sceen caps. Hoping someone might have something new.

    Thanks

    The very best reference shots I've ever seen were actually posted here, by 'James Kenobi 1138':

    I was somewhat amazed at how close I had gotten with my attempt.

    EDIT: Oops, catch already posted mine.

    Really cool, great job! I, too, have always wondered about dagobah props. So, nobody found where this came from? hmm, time to dig

    It's cool to see some of the more obscure props being done. Looking forward to seeing this come to light (no pun intended!).

    Is that Frank Oz's actual hand holding the lamp? Looks like it.

    That would be a great little prop to have.

    That lamp is still in the LFL archives, I saw it when I was there. Still had the bulb and wires running down it. It didnt look like anything off the shelf but who knows...

    Thanks again for the pics.

    If I recall correctly that is the power converter that Luke used to recharge R2 and power his other gizmos.

    Another one of those OT pieces that we all feel like we should know what it comes from! So odd... Yet you feel like you KNOW you've seen it before!

    All I know is Rylo is da man fo da job if it was just a fabricated/machined piece.

    Can't wait to see what you come up with brother! :)

    I've always wanted to have a working one of these lying around for the assorted task. It looks like something that could be easily cobbled together with existing parts from the hardware store. My company sells lots of odds and ends, so I"m sure I could easily find a pen light that I could turn into one of these. Looking forward to whatever Rylo does, though!

    You should get right on that, man. I'd love to see what you come up with.

    I don't really care for replicas that somewhat resemble a given item if you close one eye and squint with the other. In my exp. that's what trying to cobble a prop together of hardware store parts yields.

    I often see posts suggesting such things as 'easily done with this or that' or 'simple enough, etc.' Oddly, we seldom see any examples of the work after the suggestion has been made. Sure, there's a one-off here and there (as mentioned above) but nothing I'd call an 'exact replica.'

    Good luck with that and please share the fruit of your efforts as you make progress. :thumbsup

    Everytime I look at this I see one of those light-up valve stem covers for car tires.
