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.
