What kind of wood? How do they hold up, or are they just for show?

Hello gentlemen,

Will, your exotic wood minimags are really sweet. I am happy to say the actual product is even better than the photos- I had to buy a couple of them......

For anyone who still hasn't gotten one the ebay seller natlsports is offering the original light pink color as well as some mid-1980's black minimags in the original blister pack again. Picking up the original light pink for $15 shipped is a hell of a find......

Good hunting folks.....

this thread has been pretty quiet -

Couple of questions:

Will the MagLEDs be collected like these?
Will that be a different thread?
so far - I have seen black and gray.

anyone removed the LED from these yet?

if so - how do you do it?

Will Maglite come out with new colors for the incan AAs ?

Feel free to move this comment as necessary....

I was at WalMart and saw the AA MagLeds' for the first time, next to the NiteIze drop in LED conversions. Has anyone done a head2head to compare the two? It seemed a little cheaper to buy an original MagliteAA and get the conversion.... but is it better?

sizzle - I'd say that's the "regular" violet. On my last count, there's "violet" (the regular offering), that faded purple that you (sizzle) have, and the dark purple/blue that some of us have. :nana:

will, I won't collect those. I was going to buy one, but after skimming through recent reviews, I think I'll keep using sammies, thankyouverymuch. There's a couple of threads reporting disassembly, but I can't remember who posted them right now.

I plan to start a new minimag led collection. But I figure it will be a while before colors other than black/pewter come out.

I picked up a 2 AA MagLED, then a 3 AA MagLED. To my eye, pointing them against a dark wall, they look pretty much the same. I also have a Nexgen 750 sammie, with a McR-27L reflector (made my own head and bezel), running off a Lithium 14670 battery. The sammie is brighter, has a tighter spot and is 4 times the cost. Then I have an old Maglite 2 C flashlight, I put one of the MagLED conversions in it, that is better than the sammie, that comparison is not apples to apples. SO - having said all that - if cost is an issue - get the stock MagLED $30 for the 2 D, or the $25 or less MagLED AAs

Thanks to this post I am the proud owner of 4 colors. Red, Pewter, Ice Blue, and Blue. That's every color Wal-Mart had last night. Actually, even better, my wife offered to buy one of every color they had! I was happy to just pick up a couple last night and come back for the others!

Hey I just noticed that I bought 2 packages labeled with M2AKGN. One is the babyish blue that I'd think is blueshimmer LIKE THIS. One is a dark blue LIKE THIS. So what is the dark blue? The part number must be wrong on the package.

The mislabelling of packages has been documented before. There's actually a couple of blue shades (from lightest to darkest):

light blue
ice blue
blue shimmer
blue
midnight blue

Since you bought your lights from Wal-Mart, I'm inclined to say you have shimmer blue (light shade) and blue.

green,

Thanks! At least now I know what I don't need to acquire. Also, FYI... I bought each light with a pair of extra bulbs (in addition to the ones in the light) and the nylon holster in a blister pack for $8.74 at Wal-Mart.

Interested in a collection? I'm thinking of selling mine.

Is it possible that I found one of the limited edition ice blues in a Indiana Walmart? I was in Evansville Inidiana for work and stopped in wal mart. They had a light blue which looks exactly like the limited edition ice blue on action-lights.com. They also had a bunch of blue shimmers and this was much lighter with a hint of silver/grey in it. The serial number was wrong and indicated a kgn (blue I believe). It was the only one on the whole rack of about 100 mini mags.

edit: Now that I think about it, I think was I have is a blue shimmer and the other is a light blue. And the "blue" I recently got from Walmart seems to be the blue/purple color. It looked blue in the store but in the house under soft white bulbs it looks purple.

I've also got a hot pink. Is this the fuscia color?
