In 1996 American toy company IPI Toys produced a limited edition run of officially licensed Star Trek: The Next Generation Type-2 Phaser laser pointers.
I believe this were limited to 10,000 (but I”m not 100% sure on that).
They came in a beautiful red velvet lined box together with a Certificate of Authenticity and instructions on how to use the laser pointer.
The pointer itself can be fired with or without a sound effect.
Watch a video demonstration (the one in the video is not the one that’s for sale):
Today your chances of getting one of these is fairly remote. You have to wait until an existing owner puts one up for sale.
Fortunately that’s what this post is about because that’s what has just happened.
A seller has put one of these numbered #1018 up for auction on Ebay.
The starting bid is $300 but I’m sure it’ll go for much more than that – these are seriously rare and highly sought after ST:TNG collector’s items.
