You'll have to make it yourself then. Just go to AJ's site for a list of parts you'll need and 3 different diagrams for the lights. Radioschack carries just about everything you'll need, one is a soder gun and soder. If you've never done electronics before I suggest you work with someone that has or read some books. wink

Here is the link you'll be needing.

Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, Radio Shack seems to have discontinued most of the main components, at least while they put together their new catalog system, or so I've been told by the phone order salespeople I've talked to. A lot of them can be found at AllElectronics.com or you could try doing some internet searches and see what you can come up with. If you do find an(y) alternate source(s), please post your find to help others out.

I went to Radioshack two days ago and they had everything I needed to make lights for the powercell and cyclotron. Blue LEDs, Red LEDs, Boards, wire,capcitors,etc. You'd have more luck going to a store that still has stock rather then ordering direct from the company, only if you can though.

you can also try www.mouser.com they have all the parts needed

if you dont want to build your own board start looking in toys and other items with lights, you can remove those and put them in your pack... you may not find an exact match but would be fairly close...

As a well dedicated loyal radio shack customer they have discontinued almost all of there little nick nacks and so fourth. try a specialty shop in your area (active components in my area) it'll cost a little more though in most cases.
im gone.

If you want to make it cheap than you could always use regular light bulbs for the cyclotron so just all cyclotron lights up at the same time and the same for the gun. but for the blue leds Idon't know. If you have seen in GB 1 When the Ghostbusters hide from the staypuft marsh mellow the whole cyclotron is lighting up.

That won't make it cheap. The cyclotron lights can be made to work properly for about $5 dollars.

For the parts I suggest trying Jameco.

yo i've used lights from a toy gun with flashing lights on the top there about 1.50 over here which they'd be around $1 in america.
you may have to rewire a few bits but its no biggy and they look fine trust me.
