Here's a customer review:
Star Trek is back and even stronger in 2009. When it comes to toys - usually the best ones are in the hundreds of dollars and you hate to touch because of their price - however - Playmates is doing it right!
This PHASER has Detail, quality and Functionality. It is based on the new Star Trek film - and it is fun.
The PHASER is realistic looking with a silver casing. It has a light and sound effect of "activation or charging". This gives the users the illusion of 'control'. The best part is the PHASE BARRELL. One side has lights and sounds for Dematerializing (RED) and another series of sounds and lights for the Stun (Blue)setting. It has a flip control too - to quickly go from one setting to the other.
Durability: I can see really younger kids might "over-flip" the PHASE BARRELL to hard. But if you use it as if it were real - no problem.
Educational Value; Not really - but it's great for playing futuristic cowboys-and-indians! (If anyone remembers those!)
I'm sure the cast and crew of the new movie had fun with the real props, but Playmates allows us to have our own fun too!
