Jedi Food Capsules

According to The Parts of Star Wars the little metallic canisters on the jedi's belts in Episodes I, II, and III are made from the caps of Staedtler pens.

When I initially made these I couldn't find any Staedtlers and used a substitute.

Staples Pens

To cap off the bottoms I used parts from other pens and some highlighters.

I ended up painting half of these gold and half silver.

Now that I've found the actual pens at Staples I'll theoretically get around to making the accurate prop eventually but truth be told I've pretty much forgotten that TPM ever existed at this point.
