Re: Redesigned class TOS phaser!

You guys have to go browse the linked thread in the first post. That thing is amazing! It's a full working 3D printed part, complete with moving parts, removable "Type I" phaser, extendable nozzle, pop-up targeting display, etc. I'm absolutely amazed at the number of parts that went into making this thing!

To me, it looks like The Federation's phaser contract was awarded to GLOCK.

Too boxy and bland. The ones in the film look better.
Funny, I been thinking the same thing about ALL 20th century guns. The thing about the turnable head of the movie versions is that they seem more primitive doing that switch a roo. Its like the phasers only have 2 settings (seems even more primitive than the enterprise phase pistols) . No wide field, no power settings, no "heater" settings, no "Vaporize" settings.

Agree, and not just cause I own a QMX replica of the phaser from INTO DARKNESS.

Re: Redesigned class TOS phaser!

My criticism is that it just doesn't have an interesting silhouette from any angle.

Re: Redesigned class TOS phaser!

I like everything about it except the firing mechanism. A button seems simultaneously unwieldy AND likely to cause accidental activation. There's a reason the trigger is standard on firearms - it's easy to use but also requires more intention to apply the pressure needed.

I freaking love this design:

Go see more of it here.
Sharp design! Honors the original, and adds a "hard" flair to it--certainly a practical, belivable alternative to the dollar bin toys seen in the JJ flicks.

Re: Redesigned class TOS phaser!

This phaser model demonstrates the design ethic I wish JJA had used throughout the artwork for the movie series. I think the theme for the art would have been much more clever and intriguing had it utilized the original designs in an "embrace and extend" fashion, like with the shipboard uniforms. Had we seen this phaser, along with something more like Carthew & Wallace's "Prime Alternative" Enterprise, and interiors that were familiar but also new and extended, I think movies XI and XII would have felt more like Star Trek for those who remember it, without ruining anything for the newcomers.

Neither do the ones from the films, or the TNG phasers.

It's like it was intended to be a weapon or something.

Re: Redesigned class TOS phaser!

I dig it. Nice version of TOS PHASER. Very respectful of the original while making it more contemporary.

I could even see this in the TOS universe as an alternate model of the PHASER from TOS. It just has all the elements that makes it work in that universe.

I want one!
