Absolutely outstanding, Prometheus, craftsmanship of the highest order; bravo, bravo! This is seriously impressive, and really professional looking. It really shows how ingenuitive someone can be with a few model kits, really harks back to the days days of Mike Okuda and Co doing their kitbashes!

#79355 DST Trek-Tek TNG Type II Hand-Phaser

Posted by Loggy on 21 February 2015 - 02:12 AM

This was really welcome news, and it's something that I've been hanging out for since the first TOS phasers were released. Way back in 2009 (or thereabouts) I got a question published in AskDST about them making a TNG phaser following the success of the TOS stuff, and whomever answered the question quite was vehemently against any TNG-Tek; something along the lines of "thanks for asking, we're just not that into it." It's nice to see a reversal of that opinion, albeit half a dozen years later.


It's a very nice sculpt, and I would love some rubber grips. I have a Ruby's TNG phaser, and while it is fun to toss it around, those plastic grips do feel a bit... well... plastic-y (what a genius I am), the sculpt seems somewhat oversized and the limitations of the sounds are a bit limiting (the genius strikes again). Adjustable power levels seem to be likely, because they have done it with the TOS phasers. Lights would be similarly lovely. I just hope this will be released and it doesn't disappear into the 'nice to haves' of the past, with some folks having suggested this may be vaporwear.

#78768 Review: Chakotay in Maquis attire

Posted by Loggy on 16 January 2015 - 08:16 AM

I was just looking through my figures, however, and noticed that Gowron has a holster for his disruptor pistol, but that was the only other example I could find or think of. Alas, an example of a weapon holster, but again, not a phaser holster. So yes, Daysleeper, there have certainly been holsters for tricorders, knives and disruptors, however I was referring explicitly to phasers. I don't know of any other figure in the Star Trek line that has had a phaser holster. hence the statement. In that case, it really is out of character, I suppose. but also a logical step of evolution and variation. It would've been nice to see phaser holsters on other figures throughout the lines, especially for the more 'action-oriented' characters (Gropey-hand Riker the original man of acton and Worf et al) instead of a tricorder pouch. They gave the beam on Chuckle's phaser the snip, so the matter of a choking hazard obviously never was an issue, or had become a non-issue, so a beam getting in the way wouldn't really be a problem.
