Costume and prop reproduction company ANOVOS announced today a forthcoming Star Trek: Discovery Type II phaser replica, a fantastic-looking piece of merchandise that they project to start shipping in December 2017.

Announced for preorder at a whopping $500, this high-end replica will be the envy of other Discovery cosplayers as it includes light-up interactive elements and separates into three pieces, just like its on-screen counterpart.

ANOVOS is proud to offer the STAR TREK™ DISCOVERY Starfleet Phaser Pistol Interactive Prop Replica. Shipping estimated to begin in waves, with Wave 1 (50 units*) being shipped in December 2017, and with additional waves to subsequently follow into 2018. Pre-order items are subject to change in availability and features. This item is eligible for Payment Plan options upon checkout.

*Phasers for Wave 1 delivery must be ordered by November 15, 2017 at 11:59 PM PT. Should pre-orders reach 50 units before that cut-off, then Wave 2 will begin and those orders are thus relegated for 2018 delivery.

This STAR TREK™ DISCOVERY costume accessory was created using reference taken from the original screen-used production assets, and produced in the exacting manner that the screen-used pieces were for production.

– Fully-finished interactive replica, with 3D print construction just like the actual hero production pieces were for production of STAR TREK™ DISCOVERY.

– “Stun” and “Kill” settings selected by side switch on both left and right side, with lit “ring” indicator light at top. (“Stun” is blue; “Kill” is red.)

– Removable “P1” / cricket phaser from top, with spring-loaded pop-up scope.

– Removable magnetic battery “clip” with lit indicator light goes into pistol handle, as per original asset.

– Replaceable consumer batteries — no need to worry about shelf-life for unserviceable, custom-made rechargeable batteries.

– Rotating barrel.

– Display stand.

– Certificate of Authenticity from ANOVOS

At this summer’s Star Trek Las Vegas convention, toy company McFarlane Toys also announced plans to bring a Discovery phaser to market in 2018, but targeted at a much lower price point, emphasizing their place in the market as somewhere between low-end and high-end retailers; we’ll be watching to see what they delivery next year.

You can preorder your Star Trek: Discovery phaser at ANOVOS today and get to the head of the line for fulfillment once the company starts shipping.

    God, I would love to have that. $500 is a bit much though (I know, its a replica those are normally expensive), I’ll just wait for the cheaper ‘toy’.

    • prometheus59650

      No, they haven’t. It’s all been the full pistols.

    • I’ve never been quite clear on why you would ever use the cricket. You still need the pistol to charge it, right? They both require the use of your hand. I imagine the cricket is underpowered. If you can just take the cricket with you, it’s much more concealable. They never seem to do that.

  • Mo

    That is a handsome interim design.

  • Trent

    $500 that is insane ,it looks very nice but ,way to much!
    Nice prop on the show , but Why did they have to put the delta on it ?

    • That’s how it is on the show – the Delta is on the for ‘real’.

      • Trent

        I know and it looks stupid.

        • Nebula1701

          why does Star Fleet brand their ships? They have delta’s on everyone! It’s just to show they are Star Fleet issued.

        My main beef is it’s “upside down” when in use.

        • It’s like when you get a tattoo on your wrist, you have to decide if it’s for you or for everyone else. Considering that the wielder probably knows they’re in Starfleet, it makes sense to orient the emblem toward the target.

  • Fiery Little One

    Looks nice but a little out of my price range.

  • The Science Fiction Oracle

    $500

    WTF?

    • Slybrarian

      Not really out of line with similar high-quality props, especially given the complexity of the shape and the multiple removable parts. Compare it to the various lightsaber shops, which have more complex electronics but much simpler body manufacturing since they can generally be done with lathes.

      • The Science Fiction Oracle

        Hmm. I can buy a real, working assault pistol for that price.

      • Mo

        As I remember, back around 1980, that was also the price one had to pay for a “working” TOS phaser replica, which contained a functional strobe light. But that was in 1980 dollars.

        • Christopher Morgan

          Are you referring to the Brad Nelson Phasers?

          • Mo

            It’s possible. I don’t remember where my friend said he’d gotten his, but it was darned hefty and impressive.

  • Edgar Pinecone

    I’m not normally one to complain about highly priced collectables, but $500 is crazy. The Wand Company TOS Phaser is absolutely amazing and was $130. I see nothing here to justify the price other than Anovos’ tendency to overcharge.

  • October_1985

    It is a great design, specially in how updates the original but keeping its basic form and style. I wish they would have done that with more elements of the show, for example, the Klingon ships. As they are now I can barely recognize them as klingon.

  • Shadowknight1

    I really want this, but for that price and for how limited it is, I don’t think so. I’ll wait, sadly, for the McFarlane one and hope that it’s a good toy at least.
