The Starfleet Phaser by Quantum Mechanix (QMx): Stunning AuthenticityNovember 30, 2013
For discerning fans and collectors the Star Trek: Into Darkness Starfleet Phaser Gift Set is a must. Originally an Amazon exclusive, this set not only includes the blu-ray 3D version of J.J. Abrams blockbuster film, but also an amazing 1:1 authentic replica of one of the hand phasers that appeared in the film.
Weighing in at over a pound, QMxs metal-plated polystone masterpiece feels especially solid in-hand and the clean contours, coloring, and fine surface details remain impressive even up close. That said, the most exciting feature of this prop quality phaser has to be the dynamic spinner mechanism that allows it to be set to stun or kill with the flick of a finger. Its just another nice detail element that QMx knows hardcore fans will appreciate. Hopefully theres a 1:1 Starfleet replica holster in the works to complete the look, but in the meantime well just keep our phasers drawn and at the ready.
