Cool New QMx Star Trek 2009 Phaser Replica Available For Pre-order

For collectors and fans who are eager for new cool stuff related to the 2009 Star Trek movie, today brings good news. Today QMx begins taking pre orders for their replica phaser which costs just $50 with a stand and will begin shipping next month. Details and photos below.

 

QMx Star Trek 2009 "Enterprise Metal-Plated Phaser Replica"

It was announced last year, but today fans can finally pre-order the gleaming 1:1 scale, screen-accurate replica of the stunt phaser used in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek. QMx created their new replica using a first generation master of the screen used phaser and the look is considered an exact match for the hero phaser used in the film – and it only costs around $50.

The replica measures 10.5" long x 7" high (grip included) and weighs more than one pound. Even though this is a replica of the stunt phaser (meaning it has no moving parts or lights), QMx’s Andy Gore tells TrekMovie they "upgraded the actual prop" to create an "idealized version". The replica is made out of solid polystone core and is precision metal-plated in several finishes, whereas the stunt phasers used on set were made of painted plastic.

The new replica still costs just $49.95, which includes a Lucite stand with a brass plaque. Gore says while the replica is ideal for cosplayers, they also wanted to make it a "real collectible any fan can afford".

The phaser will begin shipping May 15th, 2011 and beginning today you can pre-order at Entertainment Earth, or at QMxOnline.com or

More to come from QMx

QMx is also still working on creating a hero version of the phaser replica, which will have moving parts and working lights and sounds (no word on when that will be released, but it is expected to cost much more). As for what is else is next for QMx, Gore tells TrekMovie that they are still working on all of their previously announced collectibles and replicas related to the 2009 Star Trek movie, including the big "Artisan" USS Enterprise replica, Starfleet Academy ring replica, USS Kelvin Salt & Pepper shakers, Star Trek maquettes, and more. Gore says that they don’t rush products out because "the most important thing is quality and these things always take time". So stay tuned.

I hate to admit it, but if I’m gonna have a phaser, I want one I can play with, not just look at.

A beautiful replica of a butt-ugly prop.

That’s a very reasonable price. Very reasonable. But again, the prop is just ugly. I liked the phasers when they looked like tools and not weapons with toy like “FLIP ACTION!”.

Meh.

Weren’t the ones in the movie a really shiny chrome? The finish here is appears to be a lot flatter.

And I thought the DESIGN was cool enough– I was just bummed it didn’t emit the traditional (and much cooler) solid red phaser beam. Those short little bursts of gunfire weren’t cool or satisfying to watch in the least.

Hopefully they’ll fix that for the sequel.

I never really liked the 09 phaser. It looked too gimicky and didn’t fire like a true phaser in my royal and esteemed opinion.

My favourite would have to be the ST II phaser. Those multiple beams were groovy baby.
I loved the traditional phasers from TOS and the movies too.

Whatever happened to the teeny weeny phasers form the beginning of ST:TNG. I liked them. They would probably get lost down the back of the sofa though.
They kind of got PHASED out! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Now those TNG rifles were damn hideous!

All great props though. I’d love to own any of the above, no matter how hideous or beautiful. So even though I disliked the ST 09 phaser I’ll probably still try to get one. Assuming the wife allows me too!

Bloody hell I can waffle, can’t I?

Next…..! : )P

Haters.

I’m in. Definitely adding to my rather large phaser collection.

The studio props department really needs to melt a few of the harder edges on this unit, add a Type I power pack that is truly detachable, and get rid of the ‘squirt gun’ beam effect. IOW, keep the TOS bulkiness but give it ST:III aesthetics and functionality. And while I’m at it, the Kelvin-era communicators were way cooler than those goofy Big E flip-phone thingys with the mood ring stone in it. They looked like the 1970’s Trek walkie-talkies we used to play with when we were kids, or the uber-nerd calculators in the flip cases we carried in college, back when Khan was still onscreen treating the Reliant like a rental car on spring break………….LOL!!!!!!!!!

@2 Sadly, I agree. I liked the Kelvin props better.

Nice repro, but not crazy about the subject matter.
Would love to see QMX turned loose on the TOS props.
Master Replicas and HMS leave me a little wanting.

@8

Who actually said anything about “hating”?

Nice trolling you gimp.

Pass. Not my thing. Phaser was ok, but not something I need a replica of. I could’ve done without the “spring action” setting, which was clearly designed for the kiddie market.

I wish one of these companies would do a high-end replica of the refitted Enterprise from TMP. Now THAT’s a starship!

Dee - lvs moon' surface

OMG! … I guess now the guys are going to fight because of phasers…. funny! …. LOL

:-) :-)

LOL

“Set phasers on Ho-hum!”

Sorry but the original phaser looks like it actually does something.
A lot of things in fact…
-detachable phaser 1
-flip up sight
-2 power adjustment nobs
-detachable power pack (handle)
-Adjustable beam emitter
-Even a transtator access screw!

(Sorry didn’t mean to “nerd out” so much)

This design looks like a Flash Gordon ray gun (with flip action!)

Nicely done prop though.

@10-sorry but the Kelvin phaser looks like somebody’s grandpa tried to weld together a TOS phaser. Complete with weight lifting grip!
LOL

:)

#7:
(If it’s a serious question about the tiny TNG phasers) They did fall out of use because they were so small. They didn’t read very well on screen, so it often looked like the characters were shooting beams out of their empty hands. I did notice they used one in season 4 “The Mind’s Eye” when Geordi was supposed to be carrying a concealed weapon.

Flash Gordon tested.
Vultan approved.

Although not my favorite design, the replica is really nice looking. I especially like the finishes used. The “brushed” metal look does give it a more utilitarian appearance…like a tool rather than a toy.

However, the TOS phaser will always remain my favorite. And the style used in TSFS looked like a true follow-up to that design.

But, kudos to QMx for putting out what appears to be a nice show piece at a very reasonable price.

But if it’s going to fly in Trek, they need to simplify it—meaning: lose the rock ’em sock ’em flip action. The thing looks like it was made by Hasbro from a design by the Swiss Army.

Where’s the awl and corkscrew?

Unless your under 10 years old, why are adults buying toy crap like these items? Really – that’s what they are! What’s the functionality of their purpose? If you cannot pose the real deal (i.e. an original prop), what’s the reason of a replica that serves no purpose but to remind you of the level of geekiness you are willing to spend upon? I just don’t understand and curious from those who purchase. What’s the personal connection to spend. Thanks.

Definitely my favourite phaser next to the classic. Would buy this if I had the moneys

Why did they even BOTHER changing the design from TOS? To the main stream movie goer, a ray gun is a ray gun.

As much as I enjoyed the movie, the look of the sets and props was something of a letdown for me as the designs from the prior movies and even the original series simply looked better and far more functional than what we got here. This looks like a well made prop, but the design itself simply isn’t all that appealing or attractive. Functionality aside, props in sci-fi films should look “cool” and none of the props in Trek 2009 looked particularly cool or displayable. Pass for me.

When I was growing up, all the Trek geeks would try to fashion our own props out of wood and plastic bits. Some came out really well, others….not so much. It’s kind of cool to have these available to purchase, but when one of us actually MADE one that captured the look and feel of what we saw on TV, that was really cool!

…but don’t count me as a fan of this design. It’s too ‘busy’.

I agree with #2, I never liked the design of the new phaser.

“QMx’s Andy Gore tells TrekMovie they “upgraded the actual prop” to create an “idealized version”. “

I admire the artisans at QMx a great deal for their attention to detail and efforts to put out a quality product for the fans that’s worth their money. I only wish they had better designs to work with.

see, and I was thrilled with the gun burst phaser fire (and the pulse phaser from the ship, a la Star Trek II). It actually made a gunfight relatively exciting. didn’t Trek II’s hand phaser… and the original cast movies, also have a [much longer]blaster-style bolt rather than the incredibly slow next gen beam [the beam which made it really tough to add any real excitement to a phaser fight]). I’m also thrilled that it wasn’t red (the beam), I liked the whitish beam of Trek VI and TOS. And that’s enough about me and what I like. The Trek 09 hand props looked a little chintzy. But It’s swell they tried something new. Luckily they were barely on screen. One that really seemed weak was the lucite tablet/padd… it just looked really fake and massive. Mind you, we didn’t see it in action. I’m also a notorious hater of pointless led lights that don’t seem to have a real purpose (I’m talking to you, rented background machines in Regula I). To me, some if the bridge controls looked just like random stereo LEDs… but I’m no astronaut, so who knows. That was the handy thing about TOS’s (cheap) simplicity — you could, if you tried like heck, buy that it was sort of future-looking technology. The movies’ CRT monitors always bugged me too, I get that they’re a lot cheaper than greenscreening (and the tech wasn’t there), but they made the bridge look more like the security control room… Read more »

@17

Thanks.
I was serious about the TNG earlybird Phasers. I liked them. As was said earlier, the ST III Phasers paid great homage to the TOS Phasers. I guess all the different kinds of Phasers have their places. It will just take time and the next movie to get used to the new Hasbro lite phaser.
I suppose with the TNG miniature phaser it was like the cell phone situation. A few years back everyone wanted the smallest (and most easily broken/lost) cellphones known to humankind until it became apparent how impractical they were.
Now we all have iPhones, wear tinfoil clothes, drive hovercars and have holiday apartments on the moon!
don’t we?
Or is that just me?

QMx. The same folks who promised a studio model of the 09 Enterprise years ago and have not delivered! Instead they give us a replica of probably the most questionable prop in the movie. Color me unimpressed!

Set your phaser on…………………………………………………………………………..YAWN!

30. Yep, the Trek III phasers were the best of the movies, methinks. I really liked the early TOS electric shavery phaser 1s. Or 2s (I get em mixed up). The little guys. I’d like those back.

The TNG crickets were fun — those later dustbusters, not so much.

You know, that prop doesn’t lookthat bad, actually. Well, better than I remember from the film and not quite as flimsy-lookin’ — I wonder if idealized means they gussied up the design, as well as the materials? But, yeah, Hasbro lite is right.

And my lengthy lament of minor prop/set gripes just kind of, er, leaked out. I’ll add the use of the TNG starfleet symbol to the list (It bugged me when they used it in Trek VI too). Meh.

I liked the change in the phaser firing system: beam was classic but kind of cheesy and stale. The same old thing. The “light bullets” were more exciting, in my opinion.

…have to agree yet again TOS did this better than the previous film with regard to prop design, phaser being a case in point, as nicely illustrated by Spockboy above..
For me I think that all these elements of the future were designed with far more thought in TOS, even famously painstaking on how a salt shaker might look like in the future and using it as the brilliantly creative (and accurate forward thinking) laser scalpel

And those posters are just fantastic with, again, the original MJ’s E…another missed opportunity…I was so looking forward to seeing the original ship, more real yes, on the big screen in 09….

Happy First Contact Day!

oops, meant TNG federation logo, not starfleet.

Really hoping the phasers are changed out in the sequel for something cool. The “ray gun” look of the 2009 phaser has been even worse when you see them done in cheap plastic versions. Plus the “p’choo! p’choo!” action is goofey. Where’s the sustained beam that make bad guys and Mugatu glow and disappear???

The ring would be cool if it was solid silver. Silver plate is a mean-spirited joke. It looks like crap.

Looks like the phase pistol from Enterprise

Love the 09 phaser. it keeps the unique basic wedge profile of the TOS phaser, being there is more gun behind the grip than in front (like those in Enterprise). It’s different but not radically different like those hideous TNG hand vacuums. I also like the barrel spin, it makes for a visually interesting weapon on screen and, like those great scenes of the Cage, where the actors are adjusting the telescopic barrels, it gives the actors some nice business with the prop and makes them more believable.

all in all, it reminds me of a TOS/Trek 3/Trek 5 hybrid…and being that I’m a fan of all those, my order is going in today!

I liked the new phaser. It seemed much more futuristic but also realistic then anything from TOS. We all know that a pulse of energy is much easier to control then a beam!

Also, I always got the feeling that the beams moved so slowly you could just step out the way of it.

Furthermore, the nature of the firefight whilst using the ST09 phasers seemed to convey more danger then multi-coloured beams flying everywhere but not really hitting people. It all just seemed more intense and real as a firefight.

All that said, I want the USS Kelvins beam phasers on the Enterprise, not the pulse phasers seen at the end, the Kelvin Vs Narada fight was much cooler with the beams then then Enterprise Vs Narada fight with the pulse phasers…

Man, I really despise the look of J.J.’s ‘alternative timeline’-redesigned phasers!

A well made replica of it, however, for those interested.

I’m interested in the QM prop repro, and I’ll pick one up for my phaser collection.

I wonder if anyone as tried changing the color scheme of the PM toy version (ie. gray, black, etc.) to see how much of a difference (if any) it changes the overall look/acceptance of the design?

Already pre-ordered mine!

Can’t wait for what comes next from Qmx.

Better looking than most previous phaser designs. I’ll buy one.

Happy First Contact Day Everyone!

I like Spock Boy’s points. The phaser from TOS looked like it was more than just a weapon that goes “pew pew!”. Remember the episode “The Naked Time” where Scotty used a phaser to cut through a panel with precision? If you didn’t know what a phaser looked like, you could pass it off as a cutting tool. You can’t get that with JJ’s pew pew phaser.

Also, as a matter of cosmic history, if something moves, it will break. That rotating barrel is not going to be of much use to anyone if the rotation gets stuck, loose or misaligned. Cripes, just look at the Playmates toy. The barrels are never facing perfectly straight. I can only imagine how much of a hassle it will be for QMX to get the barrels to face the right direction after it rotates.

Also, are the triggers those circle shaped buttons on the side of the handle?! Way to throw off your aim when you have to push something on the phaser towards the side.

I wish they would come out with a whole line of phasers all with the same type of display, preferably a wall display. It would include TOS, TNG, and all the movies, As a display, they could all be static as long as the price was reasonable.

I wish they would offer all of the phasers to scale with a wall mounted display
