This week brought exciting news for those who want to be armed like an officer on Star Trek: Discovery. We also have a blast from the vinyl past and a way for you to relax like Mr. Data and more.
Anovos ‘Discovery’ Phaser Replica Pre-Order
This week Anovos, mostly known for their high-end costume replicas, announced they will be making a Star Trek: Discovery phaser replica. The interactive replica is based on original screen-used production assets and includes lights to indicate stun and kill settings, a removable “cricket phaser,” a removable magnetic power clip (with indicator light), and a rotating barrel. It also comes with a display stand. The phaser is priced at $500 and can be pre-ordered now at Anovos, with the first 3 waves of 50 units each already sold out. The phaser is a perfect compliment to the Discovery uniform replicas Anovos is working on.
If you are looking for something a bit less pricey, McFarlane Toys announced at Star Trek Las Vegas they were working on a Discovery phaser role-play toy priced at $39.99.

Don’t forget… MacFarlane Toys will be releasing a Star Trek Discovery Phaser toy replica in Dec 2018 (per their presentation at the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas in August 2017)
