Phaser goes kapwiiing!

Eva, very nice, and thourough review. I've seen this toy around, along with the tricorder thingy, and didn't realize how much coolness was packed in there. I like the power up sound effect the best so far.

Yeah- it's a great little

Thank you!

Yeah- it's a great little toy. I really, really debated getting the Communicator, but ultimately decided I just can't do it compared to this. I am, however, reconsidering the Tricorder; though the TOS and TNG-era tricorders will always seem better.

After I shot the video, though, the On/Off switch started giving me more trouble- I have to fight it to even turn on now most of the time! I'm not sure if the switch itself is faulty, or if it's physically moving around inside the plastic shell. I don't wanna risk opening it up at this point, though, and seeing if there's anything I can do.

This toys cool because...

If you have a Star Trek Halloween costume these toys look as good as the expensive replica's and you can buy them instead for 1/4th of the price and blast away.

Funny you should say

Funny you should say that:

I just picked-up Diamond Select Toys' versions of the TOS Science Tricorder and TOS Communicator at TRU for $70 [w/o tax] today! I haven't opened them yet (and won't until I get around to reviewing them), but they look fantastic and gimmick-filled!

While at said TRU, I got a closer look at the new movie's Communicator and Tricorder in-box. The Communicator will never be covered by me for CDX as I have no intent to get one. But, I am reconsidering the Tricorder... doesn't mean I will get one, just that I've had a chance to handle it, and I am reevaluating it at this time.
