Today the Nerf team at Hasbro revealed an new collaboration with Star Trek for the NERF LMTD collection. There’s a Type 3 Phaser Rifle and Starfleet Type 2 Phaser, as seen in Star Trek: First Contact.
Here is the official description:
These capture the look of the phasers used by Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The Type 3 motorized dart blaster has light-up effects that simulate the look of being assimilated by the Borg in homage to the film, Star Trek: First Contact, light-up phaser effects, phaser sounds, authentic First Contact movie sounds, an internal 5-dart clip, and fires 1 dart at a time.
The Starfleet Type 2 Phaser fires 1 dart and has a pull-back priming handle.
