I want to order some spare bulbs for my Star Wars and Mando. I want to ideally have a few of everything on hand. I've tried doing research but there are just too many options.

Are the bulbs 5v or 6.3v?

Are all the GI bulbs 44/47/bayonet?

Are all the GI bulbs frosted?

Are all the insert LEDs those little boards?

Are there 555/wedge style bulbs anywhere?

I am going to order some warm white, natural white, a few colors.

The manual hasn't been a huge help on frosted vs clear and I can't seem to find the voltage of the leds.

***Looks like they are 6.3v.***

Does anyone know if there are any 555/wedge type bulbs in these Spike 2 games? If I knew that there weren't any (hopefully) then I could just order a mix of 44/47/bayonet type bulbs and be done with it.

I don't have a spike2 game but all bulbs should be 2smd wedge clear lens. I don't think Stern uses bayonet bulbs but you can easily just check your games.

Actually the only bulbs I have seen are the 44/47/bayonet type. I was wondering if there were any wedge type hidden somewhere. The manual doesn't help.

5 volt bayonet, but you can use the 6.3 volt. They appear to be frosted. Comet Pinball makes and sells them.

Don't forget to buy a couple bayonet LED flash bulbs, which are also 5 volt. Again, you can get away with 6.3 volt versions, but avoid the higher voltage variants (12 volt+).

The only wedge bulbs in the machine are the start button and coin slots.

Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks very much!
