EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE
This is the last great mystery of the E-11 Stormtrooper blaster. . . the unidentified cylinders on top of the magazine well.
Approximate size of each cylinder:
Length - 1 7/8"
Diameter - 7/16"
These same cylinders can also be seen in two racks (each with six cylinders) on top of the Imperial mouse droids. The racks are most likely unmodified, providing the most important clue in finding the parts.
Top of the Mouse Droid
Each rack of cylinders on the Mouse Droid is a little longer than 5 1/2".
The best theory so far is that the racks are banks of fuses from an old industrial machine. They could even be out of the same machine as the Hengstler counter boxes.
Do you recognize them? Any alternate theories?
