Bottom Line: Our sincerest thanks go out to eagle-eyed Field Reporter, Gary Stair, who filed the following exciting report over our model 33 teletype machine today. According to Stair:
“Hi Mark, Maybe some of the other 1:6 scalers would love these little desk lamps I found recently at Dollar General. I purchased a couple in the black color, but they’re available in red, blue and white as well. Pretty COOL! They also come with batteries and a push button on-off switch at the top, just like 1:1 scale versions—and they’re even adjustable. Amazing! Enjoy!” —Gary Stair
UPDATE—THIS JUST IN:
We realize that not everyone has a Dollar General store in their area, so we started to search around online for similar products. While we couldn’t find any other miniature 1:6 scale desk lamps for $1 (that price is INDEED a bargain), we were able to locate an even better-looking version for a shade under $10. They’re called “Tiny Tim Book Lights” and they’re widely available in most bookstores and online at places like Amazon HERE. Yes, you can buy 10 of the Dollar General versions (if you can find them) for just 1 of the Tiny Tims, but Tim’s details appear to be superior. So, you know… Whatever you decide—Happy Hunting, 1:6ers!
