Illuminated Display Panel

The malfunction function randomly provides a realistic flicker for which the most appropriately vintage fix is a tap on the top of the display housing… just like the olden days!
The Radio and Screen upgrades come wrapped in a page of the Boston Bugle newspaper. Printed on the last Friday before the War, the tabloid-sized page is packed with Boston’s news and ads. So it’s crumpled, maybe even torn a little… perhaps you’ll iron it flat, or perhaps not, because that’s just how it’s meant to be.
Now you can upgrade the future; put the fun into functionality!

The genuine FM radio brings you local and national radio stations (where available from your broadcaster) from the comfort of your forearm. The simple controls could not be easier to operate – once powered-up, a quick click of the rocker switch and the radio seeks the next available station, while a long press adjusts the Radio’s volume.

Illuminated Display screen
Bring your Pip-Boy to life with this illuminated display panel upgrade module. Retrofit the screen to an existing 2000 Mk VI kit or build it in when first assembling the kit. Either way, the module is guaranteed to brighten your day with its fun Malfunction Function™ and authentically vintage Tap-to-Fix™ action.
Get that satisfyingly warm in-game glow
Beam with joy when you realize that these beautiful components are wrapped in an authentic Boston Bugle newsprint page and discover three AAA-sized fusion cell replicas, to power your display panel, are included.
Once the illuminated panel is installed, press the power button on the top of the Pip-Boy’s main control box housing to fire up the display. Marvel at how sharp the image is when viewed through the crystal clear Tritan™ monitor glass; nothing could be more perfect…
… until it all goes wrong that is!
And yet then, in a strange way, when it starts to falter, it gets even better. Because, as you may have come to expect from a piece of Wasteland engineering, sooner or later (randomly within three minutes in this case) the display starts to malfunction and, when it flickers in a most pleasingly authentic way, you really feel that you are there, in the thick of the action. However, when it does start to fail, don’t worry, help is at hand… actually, help is at your hand, when you engage the Tap-to-Fix™ function by delivering a swift tap or two to the top of the housing to stop the flickering and restore normal function.
Everything you need to light up your screen
The perfect upgrade: complete enlightenment
Malfunction Function™: something wrong is so right
Tap-to-Fix™: the old fashioned way
