    1 Week Ago  Dec 5, 2017, 10:22 PM - ANH Luke Droid Caller Aluminum Top Cap #1

    I've had an original Kobold flash for a while now and I really wanted a top cap that was "screen accurate", matched the finish of the Kobold aluminum, and wouldn't fall off like I'd bet the 1977 Star Wars Droid Caller top cap did often! I did some research and the top cap is not on the droid caller in every scene and in some scenes it can be interpreted differently on the exact shape, dome height, raised off the top of the Kobold, and on and on. So I came up with my version of it and had it machined out of aluminum. It has a deep shaft that snaps inside the Kobold and is held by the sprung ball bearing and the set screw so it can hold up well when trooping, cosplaying, and surely on display without falling off. I had 2 versions machined - One for ANH Luke and one for a Jawa droid caller that's a bit different. Both versions fit the original Kobold & Linhof flashes, Dark Energy replica, and Anovos model. Here are the research pics and my top cap, let me know your thoughts, thanks! Check the Classified Project Runs too!
