But I used to make these elaborate fortresses for my GI Joes though so I know where you are coming from. My mom bought masking tap and magic markers by the case. She also knew better than to throw out any cardboard box. It was law.
I had Cardboard boxes, LEGO, and Milk Crates.

I was thinking, I've seen some videos on youtube where some folks have hollowed out old Nintendo NES controllers and found a way to install cell phones in them and have them be functional. I got to thinking as I compared the communicator to my cellphone, this thing is significantly larger than my cellphone, and it wouldn't be too hard to do this with one of the communicator toys.
People have actually done this with communicator replicas and their cell phones on Youtube. Pretty cool stuff, and anybody with some tech savy could probably pull it off.

I got my phaser a couple of weeks ago and hopefully my communicator will be here by Friday. I pre-ordered the Medical Tricorder from Entertainment Earth, though I'll probably get both versions. Too bad about the delay, but a few months to ensure quality shouldn't be too torturous.

Re: Art Asylum/Diamond Select Tricorder delay

Wow, I"m going to go look some of that up now.

I picked up one of the Art Asylum communicators at the Experience last month, and I've been having more fun with it than I should.

Hey, does anyone remember that communicator that was sold through Wired magazine. the one that had a Calculator and voice recorder in it.

But a leaky battery ruined it.

They pop up on eBay all the time, so if anybody still wants one they are there for the taking.

The same thing happened to mine. I ruined my Playmates Enterprise D the same way.

I've got one floating around somewhere. Hopefully, it's in storage.

No matter, since I have an AA one on hand.

Re: Art Asylum/Diamond Select Tricorder delay

This is so stupid, but I carry my communicator with me wherever I go. It's just fun to have around.

Re: Art Asylum/Diamond Select Tricorder delay

I put Velcro on my belt, another patch on the back of the communicator and wear it around sometimes. It's not just the chirping when you flip it open that's cool; it's the "rriiipppp" when you pull it off the belt that totally seals the deal.

Yes (not stupid). I like you guys. I'd prefer you as co-workers.

Re: Art Asylum/Diamond Select Tricorder delay

Well it's easier to carry around than the phaser. Well, The type II anyway.

Re: Art Asylum/Diamond Select Tricorder delay

I'm afraid to put velcro on my AA Phaser I. I've got a feeling it wouldn't fit right in the Phaser II mount.

Re: Art Asylum/Diamond Select Tricorder delay

We are doing an article in the ST collector magazine on the various TOS Tricorders made over the years and we are including the DST version. I will try and get an update on the release date the next time I talk to marketing at DST.
