Yep, lego toys. If I ever build an EDF jet, it will have lego retracts. Simple, cheap, light. Not recommended for that 5000 psi 737 undercarriage, but ideal for medium size models.

Bricklink is like a big ebay-style thing for lego bricks... lots of good sellers on there, and you can buy the bricks individually. If you want to try them, buy some of these and epoxy them to the top for convenient linking to your servos:

Lego also do cylinders (2793c01), pumps, tubing, etc. etc. Just in case of tubing/pneumatic failure (eg a tube popping off) it might be best to have your u/c spring down by default
