Very well made.

I bought this for a costume and found that I was better off not wasting money on this.

Two voice recordings, a opening sound effect, and that's about it.

Let's start off.. I'm a long-time Star Trek fan. I was born in the same year that Star Trek came out (1966) and I was told by my parents that, even before I could speak, I was totally enthralled watching that show on our first-generation color TV. As time went on, I grew to love the show itself. And as the years have gone by, I've maintained my love of that original series. I say this as a bit of disclaimer... you know where my biases are. That said, I'll try to be factual, rather than emotional, as I write this.

First off... a review of the toy itself. This isn't a bad replica of the prop from the film, but it's very "bare-bones." Yes, we barely saw the device in the film, which is probably a GOOD thing... you can pretend that a more reasonable design was used. Because of the limited use of the device in the film, there was very little "first-hand" exposure to the prop, and thus Playmates had very little raw material to work from.

That said... this toy is extremely "bare bones." It lights up, and it speaks TWO PHRASES (neither of which is chosen to permit any "roleplaying" suitability). The two phrases are "panicked Spock demanding to be beamed up NOW!" and "Kirk falling without a 'chute." While both are "exciting" moments from the film (quotes intended... I personally wasn't excited by either), neither is suitable for roleplaying use. A kid playing with these needs to be able to pretend he's doing something NEW, not just replaying two fairly cheesy sequences from this movie. It should have more basic phrases. They COULD have actually brought in the actors to records a line or two, or just used "sound-alike" voice actors for that matter. "Kirk to Enterprise"... "Beam me up"... "Enterprise here"... "what is your status"... and so forth.

Star Trek is back and even stronger in 2009. When it comes to toys - usually the best ones are in the hundreds of dollars and you hate to touch because of their price - however - Playmates is doing it right!
This COMMUNICATOR has Detail but it was the most dissappointing of the new toys. Not because of its quality of production or detail ,but because of the sounds. It is based on the new Star Trek film.
The COMMUNICATOR is realistic looking with the familar flip top and nice graphic in the middle of a bulb. It has a light and sound effects of "activation" when flipping it open. (With an On-Off Switch to save batteries when not in use.)
The sounds of it opening are very cool, however the two other activation buttons only do one thing each. One has a phrase from Kirk and the other a Phrase from Spock.
I would have preferred one button to alternate between 4 or 5 phrases from the film and the other for sound effects like tuning a frequency, alert sounds, transmission signal..etc.
Durability: I can see really younger kids might "over-flip" the Flip TOp to hard. But if you use it as if it were real - no problem.
Educational Value; Not really - but it's great for playing like you are part of the Enterprise!
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.

When I heard that they were going to reboot Star Trek, and take it back to the beginning, I was looking forward to see them "update" the equipment, which was very well designed for a sixties TV show. Well, I am not happy with the total re design. The only similarity is the flip top. The rest has no resemblence to the original communicator. I know it's 2009, but as I said, the equipment from the classic series was ahead of it's time. At the beginning of the movie, when Kirk's mother is about to birth James T. Kirk, she is speaking into a communicator that resembles the old TV series prop. Why was it good there, and not in the rest of the film? I do collect this stuff, so I had to get it. But I am not too happy with the redesign on any of the props...those reviews are at the respective items. The effects are nice, and it is durable, so if you collect this kind of stuff, you will enjoy it.

I buy all of those star trek toys for my six year old who loves Star Trek. We got both this communicator and the one from the original series. At the end, the kid prefers the other one as it is a lot more authentic, has more sounds and you can have the "spaceship" page you.

Hardly worth the discounted Gold Box price. There are two problems with this item. First, the sound is communicator-like, not authentic likely because of copyright issues. Second, the volume is low and not adjustable. Anything louder than a quiet room and you won't be able to hear it. If you are ordering it simply for a visual prop, you'll probably be okay but keep expectations low.

Why, why does this not work? I received this communicator as part of my stand issue outfit yesterday and have been trying to contact the USS Enterprise all day yesterday and today but I have received no communication. I'm slightly worried about the beings that inhabit the planet I'm on; I just hope that I can disassemble this faulty communicator and request for Scotty to beam me up so I can get out of here...
