The infamous Walmart PKE in all its inaccurate glory. How much better can we do than this? We'll see.
The back just makes me sad. Very sad. Obviously the belt clip has to go. As do the stickers and all the text. The power switch is placed wrong, and the battery door isn't accurate.
The "LED" lenses are problematic. I'd like to replace these with more accurate, smaller rectangle LEDs, but I'm worried about the being able to mod them into the board. Also, the screen shouldn't be recessed. I anticipate I'll have to compromise a little here.
REFERENCE: You can see here the lights are MUCH smaller. Also of note are how squared off the ends of the wing LEDs are.
REFERENCE: There's also clearly nothing between the thumb buttons on the handle, so we'll get rid of that.
Strip it down! The belt clip is easy to remove, but will take some work to hide. the stud in the middle of the handle has no screw on it, but does make it friction-tight when disassembling. That can be eliminated.
Not much to the handle. We'll gut this and put in a "real" battery. The battery compartment can be eliminate entirely as a consequence.
We'll sand down all the imprinted text, and seal off where the battery door and switch originally were. The handle should also be more square. This will be a tougher ask, but I think we can pull it off.
Shield off, full view of the wand arms and motor. The big problem with the wand arms besides the LED order is the thickness of the arms. We might need to totally recreate them from scratch.
The contact switches just friction mount on two studs. A firm grip and some needlenose pliers will pull them free.
Underneath, everything is pretty delicate, which is a polite way of saying "cheap."
See how that speaker is there with no wires attached? That shouldn't be the case. But it was "delicate." By which I again mean "cheap." The wires popped right off, and now it's totally useless. That's not saying much, since the sound board is legitimate garbage anyway. I also love the five channels for LEDs on the screen. Why? because there are seven LED's on the circuit board. This stuff is all heat welded into place, gonna have to Dremel it out.
New parts in hand! The screen is from Freeky Geeky, The belt clip plug and buttons are from https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3870303
