McFarlane Discovery Phaser


#1

Just came across this on twitter. https://twitter.com/twotone/status/964881790950432768. Judging from 1 pic, their Disco phaser looks pretty good! $34.99, Summer 2018

That looks pretty good at $39.99, they’re going to sale alot of them. I assume it will have lights & sound?


#3

I believe so and if the placard is correct, they’re ahead of schedule. Here is the original announcement from last year. https://mcfarlane.com/news/mcfarlane-toys-star-trek-2018/

The display model looks 3D printed which means they don’t have test shots yet.
A summer release may be unlikely but heres hoping.


#5

I was reading on another forum that the display model is one of Anovos’s models. The same thread stated that they do have a prototype, but it’s only available for scheduled, private viewings. I think this was over at the TrekToy forum.

As @Nicksdad and @trekker670 correctly pointed out, we were looking at a prototype (probably Anovos), TrekCore is out with a preview video of an unpainted working prototype. Still looks pretty good! Definitely more in-line with what one would expect for ~$40. Biggest disappointment, IMO, is that the setting indicator light only illuminates when the trigger is pulled.

Still looks pretty good. You get your $40.00 worth.


#8

I’m so buying a case of these when they’re made available :slight_smile:


#9

Case is only two phasers


#10

I thought they might be in a case of six, like we’ve seen done for the AA/DST phasers.


#11

I dont remember where I saw it, but I thought something said “case size: 2”


#12

Big bad toy store has them up for preorder now at $34.95 with delivery in q3. They will not deliver to CA, KS, CT, or NY due to laws against realistic looking guns.


#13

Realistic?!


#14

Complete with orange barrel :frowning_face:

It’s black and gun looking. You also have to keep in mind that cops in Sacramento just shot and killed a guy in his own back yard because they thought the cell phone he was holding was a gun. So…


#16

Yeah, but that just shows how the regulation is silly. If a phone looks like a gun, anything looks like a gun. If anything looks like a gun, nothing looks like a gun. It looks like a phaser.


#17

When you think it might be a gun, it is until you know it isn’t. Personally, I don’t think orange color makes any difference ever to a cop, and since these don’t shoot anything, it wouldn’t even be illegal to paint it out or remove it.


#18

Don’t point your finger at a cop “It’s a Gun!” I swear these days are scary :scream:


#19

strange with red top, but maybe you can repaint it…

hope in germany its total black


#20

Just pre-ordered three :slight_smile:

One to keep stock, one to repaint and one to modify to reflect the Mirror Universe version.
