Anyone know where I can find replacements for Scoopic rubber eyecups?

A: No.

However, when I was in a pinch for my Bolex H8 reflex, I used lots of duct tape to create a softer spot for my eye to land...just an idea...

Probably impossible to find original eyecup for scoopic. Buy bolex, arri, beaulieu, etc. eyecup and glue it to the rotating eyepiece.

I have one replacement eyecup that is not from Canon, it's light grey and looks like it was just a generic one. Need another for my 2nd camera. I'll measure the opening and see if it is compatible with other standard sizes. I'd like to avoid glue if possible.

In Wittner they could have one good replacement for sure.

I saw Beaulieu and Bolex replacement eyecups on their site, not sure if they will fit a Scoopic. I'll try emailing and apologize for my non-existent German.

I ordered an inexpensive one for a telescope that should fit based on the measurements but isn't the best design.

Du-all camera in NYC came through. Apparently it is the same as the small Arri viewfinder so those parts work for it.
