I had a couple of my local guys that were making Clone Wars Jedi costumes. Needless to say, they needed commpads. After hours of research and scrapping idea after idea, I finally came up with an accurate commpad. Small, thin and lightweight. I also tinkered with making them light up, but the materials it takes to make them are not cheap and it’s a VERY difficult build. Only a few were ever made. Powered by a CR2032 battery and lighted with a 4500mcd LED, it really looked good once finished.
