The LEDs with addressable dies are solely the RGGB, RGBW, and RGBA.  The solid colors are all discontinued, other than some old stock on the reds.  You can tell by the LZ4-2.  The two denotes the individually addressable dice on the 10W solid colors.  If you see LZ4-4, it is a series wired LED, we don't want that :D.

We are working on a solution for the community for the solid colors since Mouser and Newark are not going to be carrying the solid color individually addressable versions on MCPCBs.  They will be carrying emitter only, but unless you have someone to reflow them onto a star, that option stinks :'(.

The emitters are LZ4-0, the LZ4-4 and LZ4-2s are the MCPCB options.  Again, we only want the LZ4-2s.

Maybe if enough of us send emails to mouser they'll carry the LZ4-2s.

What I was told is that their sales history was very low ::).

I tried to explain to them that they have really just caught on in the last year or so.  We'll see what happens.

 Lzc is looking more interesting lately. The 40w Violet at 415nm looks so awesome but it's made out of unobtainium. :(

Well encourage people here to send messages to mouser via email. Drop mouser's email address in the thread :)

Here you go.

http://www.mouser.com/contact/

I've e-mailed them by my companies name 'M. van der Sluis Electronics'
Maybe it was impressive enough to believe the saber hobby is bigger.
You'll never know,... maybe I can buy a bunch of 4 Dies single colored LED's in, to help this hobby out.

If they search deeper, they will find out 'M. van der Sluis Electronics' has more to do with Video equipment and Projectors instead of electronic parts haha. ;D
Maybe they will only check my registration.  :D :D
 >:( Maybe they wont check anything and throw that mail in the dumper. >:(

Noob, this was not good.
We need the manufacturer.

I've got back this e-mail;
Dear Matthieu,
 
Thank you for your email. Mouser Electronics is not a manufacturer. We´re just a catalog distributor.
 
If you give me the part number of these LED´s ?
 
 
For any further help please let us know.
 
Best Regards,

We might need to give them the Part numbers, so they can fight with us?
Or we go and search for the manufacturer ourselfs.

Custom layouts for LEDs is not an easy thing to come by. I'd love to get LEDengin to make custom LZ4's but I don't see that as an option. I'm sure they'd do it for a large quantity (like 1000 pieces) but they're not going to do small runs.

LuxeonStar.com carries custom tri-rebels but there aren't any really good optic solutions for them.
