^^I think his basemate is the one we have approved. He was approved fairly recently, so I would recommend sending him a PM to see if he can share his source.

Chef's Creations in the UK makes them. I've known Rob for several years and served under him in the Pathfinders Detachment in the 501st. He's a solid bloke who believes in customer service and makes a good product. Here's the link:

Hope this helps. Very Happy

Yes, the original type is the Racal Amplivox Minilite Headset...They usually go for around 300 USD, as they were not only used for the Rebel Technicians like Del Goren, but also at the Millennium Falcon's Quad laser seats (Han and Luke) and inside the Rebel X- and Y-Wing pilot helmets. On top of that the Galactic Marines in Aliens wore them and they were further used for the technicians in James Bond Moonraker and Superman.

I have one inside my X-Wing helmet and one untouched, never used one in my drawer...but I would only let it go for the right price.
However you can google for Racal Amplivox Minilite Headset replicas and you'll find people who make them...

I sent this via facebook to Lorkin already because I was having trouble getting the post to show up, but I wanted the links to be here in case other people were looking.

I do not have personal experience with any of these vendors, but this is what I found after poking round a bit:

The vendor that Retrofire posted, Chef's Creations, looks good, and the currently approved Del Goren used their headset.
http://www.chefscreations.co.uk/portfolio-item/racla-headset/

I also found this vendor online- so they may be another possibility:
http://www.spatcave.com/headset.htm

And this build thread may also be useful for those who want to try building one on their own:

Hopefully this helps! Smile
