This PHASER has Detail, quality and Functionality. It is based on the new Star Trek film - and it is fun.
The PHASER is realistic looking with a silver casing. It has a light and sound effect of "activation or charging". This gives the users the illusion of 'control'.
The best part is the PHASE BARRELL. One side has lights and sounds for Dematerializing (RED) and another series of sounds and lights for the Stun (Blue)setting. It has a flip control too - to quickly go from one setting to the other.
Durability: I can see really younger kids might "over-flip" the PHASE BARRELL to hard. But if you use it as if it were real - no problem.
Educational Value; Not really - but it's great for playing futuristic cowboys-and-indians! (If anyone remembers those!)
I'm sure the cast and crew of the new movie had fun with the real props, but Playmates allows us to have our own fun too!
And at their price - you can't go wrong! Very well made.
"Phasers on Stun, Captian."
Nonetheless, this phaser prop is something that adults like me can display proudly at home and say that this was the phaser Kirk and Spock used when they beamed aboard the Narada in the recent Star Trek movie!!! Excellent stuff!!!
The phaser is made entirely out of plastic and has no weights in it to make it hefty. Despite the lightness, it still feels sturdy enough to not break, except maybe when handled roughly by a child.
The paint application is average to above-average, with some small scratches along the body that can be seen on a closer look, some "drops" where it isn't smooth (very obvious to tell when the paint is chrome), and the top "cover" of the phaser is a more dull metallic finish than the rest of the phaser, which is chrome. Not sure if this is intentional but I still like the look. The swivel mechanism where the blue and red tips are attached is painted nicely to look metal.
The functionality is where the most of the fun is. The power can be turned on/off by a switch on the bottom of the phaser in the back. The dial on the top makes a noise when turned up, and the phaser blast from the trigger sounds differ based on what "mode" you're in.
Now, the feature that compelled me to buy this toy: the mode switch from "stun" to "vaporize". Using a button near where the thumb would rest (or where the mag release would be on a M1911 pistol grip), you release the spring mechanism that holds the blue "stun" barrel in rest and make it swirl around quickly to the red "vaporize" barrel pointing out. It's just a spring mechanism but the release is quick, satisfying and awesome. Of course, it's a one-way mechanism so you have to "cock" it back to stun mode and hear it click into place to use the button again.Read more ›
But then I think I found out why they discontinued it. I just pressed the button to flip the barrel to the red kill setting and fired it at my landlord who was at the door, asking for the rent. Me and my landlord were cool, and I was just joking around but he was sort of vaporized. Is it bad if that's in writing? By "vaporized", I just meant "hugs". It's been a few months, but I'm sure he's ok and will turn up any day now asking for the rent since it was just a dream...but that pile of dust on the porch. That wasn't there before.
Anyway, it closely resembles the shape of the "new" phaser but its just a toy. If you want the replica, they cost a little more than this, but I don't think they make sounds or light up. Some are just static displays and their barrels don't even spin, or kill people. We bought this just to mess around with. It was intended as a gift for my son but we haven't fired it again since that odd dream. It also probably looks nice on a shelf, or the wall of a game room. I will probably do that but for now, it's fine buried under the house.
Overall satisfied with the purchase and probably would buy this again. Even if it is a little overpriced.

Yes, the pun was terrible. Great for a trekkie to have in the office to shoot people with. The different sounds and flip action make it all the better. Read morePublished on May 20, 2013 by Michael Lam
