Anovos STD phaser


#1

They did a really good job. Just one thing I see they forgot, or over looked.


#2

Looks pretty sweet to me.


#3

looks great! The thing that bothers me is that insignia looks upside down to my mind and I don’t understand why they did it like that? Same kind of thing on the Comm-:thinking:


#4

It looks great, and feels right in your hand


#5

What did they forget?


#6

So are these very close or identical to the real props?


#7

Looks really good.
I wonder where they were made.


#8

On the side, with what looks like Japaneses fans. The little button should have been gold


#9

Dead on


#10

This is what am wondering. It shipped out of Florida


#11

I’m guessing that the upside down logo is so that when it’s being pointed at the viewer logo is facing the right way up. Oo if the phaser is holstered the logo is facing the right way up… however the holster design covers the logo.

It’s an interesting design issue that Apple had to deal with on their laptops.

Design for the user POV or design for the viewer POV? Tough choice. Even Steve Jobs changed his mind on it.


#12

They are made in USofA.


#13

They really do exist !!!


#14

They could have avoided the issue altogether by not including a Starfleet insignia on the weapon. Still looks tacky imho. Other than that it’s a nice phaser.


#15

When you consider there track record for getting things out. This was a surprise…


#16

Florida huh, that’s where QMX has all thier ships built.
Glad to hear it.


#17

You might be the only one to receive it as no one else (apparently) haven’t received theirs.


#18

What does the display stand look like?


#19

I know of one other who has gotten it. That is it. I do find this kinda of strange


#20
