The latest museum quality prop replicas from Master Replicas (which were announced at last month’s ToyFair) are now available for pre-order. This year MR are offering the Starfleet Assault Phaser (from Star Trek V and Star Trek VI) and the Mark IX Science Tricorder (from DS9, VOY and TNG feature films). Both ship in October, but often MR products sell out with pre-orders. More info below.
The Master Replicas’ prop replicas are based on original molds or digital scans of original screen used props and are made from die-cast metal and plastic. These new prop replicas feature lights and sounds, and include a acrylic display plus certificate. These are not toys, yet are meant for display, and are both limited to 2,000.
Both items are available to reserve for pre-order at Entertainment Earth

Previous MR items have been very high quality
Previous Master Replicas prop items included a TOS era communicator and tricorder. Their most famous previous item is the sold out, studio scale, incredibly detailed, U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701 which measured 32.7" x 16" released to celebrate Star Trek’s 40th Anniversary.
Here are videos of those items in action:
Corgi mini statues
If you are not from the 24th Century and utilize currency based economics, then you may be on a budget. Perfect for these fans, Corgi/Master Replicas also offers smaller, yet detailed, metallic styled statues of the Enterprise 1701, Enterprise D, and The Klingon Bird of Prey with lighted displays and limited to 3,000 editions. There is also a regular version of the Klingon Bird of Prey that is very detailed. These are available now at Entertainment Earth.

Corgi/MR and Trek to the future
Corgi/Master Replicas signed a deal this year to continue their license for Star Trek props and studio scale ships until 2010. It is likely fans can look forward to more props in the next year, and perhaps some based on the new movie.
