If you’re a fan of Running Press’ miniature Star Trek electronic toys, which to date have focused on Star Trek: The Original Series, then here’s some good news: the publisher is expanding their collection to The Next Generation in 2018!

Running Press’ light-up TOS communicator, complete with audio effects.

With the help of author Chip Carter, electronic miniatures of the USS Enterprise, the shuttlecraft Galileo, and an Original Series communicator and phaser have arrived over the past two years, featuring recorded audio from classic Trek along with built-in lighting effects.

Now, Running Press is introducing two familiar elements of Star Trek: The Next Generation: the iconic Starfleet tricorder and evil Borg cube!

NOTE: Not final packaging artwork. ‘Tricoder’ typo expected to be corrected before product release.

When each new miniature arrives in April 2018, they’ll be accompanied by a 48-page book detailing the history of each in the Trek universe, full of full-color photos.

It’s been a long time since we had a TNG tricorder toy that was affordable to the masses, and with both of these available for preorder at just $12.95, you can be prepared for any away mission with one in your pocket.


  • Still no word on a tricorder from the people who gave us the remote control Phaser or the Bluetooth communicator?

      That’s not gonna happen according to TWC….. Sadly, I went both so I’m. Pretty gutted about this

  • Matthew Boston

    so they are just remaking the 90’s Tricorder toy? Because that is exactly what is in that photo.

    • This will be a miniature measuring about 3-4″ long with LED lighting.

      I was gonna say, it looks identical to the Playmates toy I had as a child.

      So between that, the suspiciously low price, and the spelling error I think I’ll pass.

        I think they’re both remakes of Playmates toys. Clever.

    I have the phaser, the Galileo and the Enterprise, and for its prices they are pretty great! The lil’ Enterprise, with lights is superb, and I’ve given several of them as a mini gift for some Trekkie fans and its a hit. I’ll buy this for sure.

    Great news but no Original Series tricorder then?

  • Pedro Ferreira

    Finally!!! Some piece of Star Trek news that’s worthwhile! I don’t blame Trekcore but the endless stream of Discovery BS gets tiring after a while.
