I have an MR TOS Tric, a Klingon Disrupter and the Assault Phaser. This is easily my fav of them all!

Hopefully they'll make something else first, or 2 years will pass.

It's quite heavy ... all metal body (except the battery cover on the back, which is plastic) and came in a nice cushioned box.
The main document/booklet comes in a sliding (on each side) foldout format - the left fold-out illustrates some tric. technical facts and the right fold-out panel shows a photograph of Brent Spiner autographing the plaque.
Unlike MR's ST prop plaque, the aluminum plaque slides into a black stand / holder (the MR uses an adhesive peel & stick)
The tricorder lighting effects are brilliant ... just like Las Vegas strip at night

This message was posted today from eFX directly:
I have been getting a lot of emails in regards to the returned units. I would like to make it clear that these units are NOT for sale. We will not sell these units as "seconds" or at a discount. We have established an editions size and that will be the number that are out there. If we were to sell these defective units, that would theoretically increase the edition size, even though they do not have plaques.
thanks for your understanding. . .

Sure Commodore, but excuse my lack of photographic skills. Here are a few pics of my # 129:
And next to my phaser collection ....

I just checked and tested my tricorder .... nope, the lights do not flicker on mines ...

The lower panel LEDs are energized through the hinge, and mine is a bit loose, so if mess w/it the LEDs will flicker. It will also do this if I turn it upside down and allow it to "hang" it will flicker too.
The hinges are my biggest concern on this piece.
