Seeking LED replacement for oddball halogen bulb

My large walk-in closet has 3 fixtures each of which uses 2 of these unusual 150w halogen tubes. So it costs me 900 watts to find a shirt hanging on the rack. I did install a dimmer so I don't need to blast 900w all the time, but I'd really rather find an LED replacement for these bulbs. I have searched but have not found. Do any of you know whether such a replacement exists, and where to get it?

The bulb is about 4 3/4" or 12 cm end-to-end.

As you know it will be difficult to find an LED bulb of that type. You might start thinking about changing the fixtures. I'm partial to ones having old fashioned sockets as there are many options in replacement LED bulbs but you could go for an LED fixture.

Hi, it’s probably cheaper to replace the fixture, post a pic of the existing fixture.
something like this may work.

Hi Rocket,
They also make flush mount LED lights that might fit over what you have. I'm not a sparky so others will review my suggestion and correct as necessary.

I agree change the fixture. Well worth the time and expense.

Aha, that was the key. My rough measurement of 12 cm was too imprecise. 118 mm did indeed turn up some LED replacements. Thanks, @manden!
