PostSubject: Snowspeeder Light Bulbs?   Mon Jul 09, 2018 12:45 pm

Hi there,
I've been resurrecting my old Star Wars toys for my 5-year-old son over the last several months with generally good success. One thing that has really stumped me is that one of the light bulbs on my original Kenner snow speeder is not working. In lots of searching, I've come up with only a few anecdotes that they seldom fail. I've disconnected this one and connected it directly to the batteries--it is definitely dead.
I tried to buy some bulbs online based just on the dimensions, but they seem to be built for a higher voltage system--they are very dim when I connect them.
Does anyone know if these bulbs are find-able, or if there is a modern LED replacement? Is my best bet just trying to purchase an original wiring harness online off e-bay or something?
Any help greatly appreciated!

Maybe try eBay? I've been trying to get a small screw-in replacement bulb for a vintage Big Trak - the hardware and electrical shops don't sell them any longer but I did see some similar on eBay. I need to dig out the toy again and measure the old bulb to see if I can match it on online.
