    What is the one Star Wars prop that you wish would be discoverd? Mine would have to be the "model engine part" as seen in the partsofsw website.

    Wow. I'd say if this isn't the pic you were looking for, you ain't gonna find it.

    I of course would like to know the exact parts used for the Sandtrooper Backpack. We have some maybes, but no positives.

    If I had to pick one specific part of the pack, I'd say Radio Box.

    Whatever it is, its upside down. That would be the side we never see in 'real life'.

    Must be from something electrical or electronic. Maybe light bulbs went through those holes.

    Thing looks like a tail light assembly. Turn signal bulb, brake light bulb and driving light (when headlights are on) bulb.

    Good thinking with the tail light assembly. Many other car parts were used as props in ESB, such as the carbonite block and even the interior of the x-wing had a cassette player lol.

    My current mystery is the front end assembly on Chewie's bowcaster.

    I'm not sure it was a found item, but looking at the available reference I'm stumped as to how it was even constructed.

    I think that this part is a headlight housing. Iv'e been looking at it for some time now and my original therory was a motor part but now I believe it is from the light assembly of a vehicle. Here are some examples of others I have seen recently. The screw holes on the side hold it to the front end of the vehicle. The hole in the middle is for the headlight bulb, the smaller ones possibly turn signal and bright light bulb. The clips hold the bulb assembly in place. More imput please.

    The snowtrooper belt part is probably an electronic part. Transistor cover or resistor cover. I have seen these before in electronic stores, just take the pic to one and they will tell you what it is. Reminds me of something I say in an old am radio I had as a kid. You know the kind you put on our bikes as kids with rubber bands on the handle bars. In the later 60's for those to young to remember.

    Hrm...Let's see...

    I would like to know the color, make, and brand name of every single paint used on all the hockey masks from Friday the 13th Part 3-D all the way to Jason Takes Manhattan. That would be really nice. I already know a couple of them. I'd also like to know who owns the original Part 3 hero hockey mask. Whoever it is, he certainly keeps himself hidden quite well.

    As far as The Shredder goes, I'd like to know:

    A.) what kind of material The Shredder's huge, elaborate cape that he wore in the first two TMNT films was fashioned from.
    B.) what his red and purple costumes were made of. That has to be the weirdest material I have ever seen on film, besides the "Scream" killer's robes.
    C.) how his helmet, mask, and armor were created, and if they involved any real metal parts, or simply molds and resin.

    More likely to be a tail light because of the three bulbs.

    I'm no car expert but don't headlights have two bulbs? Modern cars have the indicator lamp in the headlight casing but older cars had them seperate, right?

    All the parts holding the scope on top of the ESB EE-3. Of course minus the "Molex connectors" thanks to an outstanding identification from 'steveday' some time ago.

    Oh and as long as we're "wanting" ,how's about a GOOD set of closeup ESB Boba Fett photos to get a nice look at the weathering pattern in exacting detail :cry

    Also the left gauntlet "rocket" on Fett.....also the exact model "probable" speargun used for the ESB sidearm. Also where the "original" grappling rocket came from...the one with the expanding fins. Also where the darned RANGEFINDER came from :confused

    Yeah,....that's about it :lol

    You're probably right.
    Question is which 'electronic part' exactly :lol
    And yes, I've shown the pic to more electronics people than I can remember...

    The T-bit would be nice to know as well...

    I can think of a list as long as my arm but I'll just keep it to my ANH Hero Trio costumes:

    Han's battery-like belt tools
    Han's belt disc (headphone speaker?)
    Luke and Leia's boots (tThey look 'off the shelf')

    Unfortuantely, that is kinda like the obi-wan lawnemower gear... just a theory. It is true that some record player heads do look similar to the Fett Rangefinder, but a match has never been found... :(
