Unless, of course, you think the prop from the shows looks like papier maché, in which case 'your mileage may vary'...


Besides, if you bought the entire TOS pack, the phaser's a VERY small part of it.


IMO, the new phaser's possibly the only thing I truly LIKE out of the new stuff - all the other bits are really, really flawed.
What's wrong with everything else?

Now you're just flaming. I'm wondering if you've watched the original series because, as has been stated, this is a common variant often seen within it. You don't want it to look like a toy? Dare I ask what you think of the original series phaser rifle... They look like toys because they were meant to be sold as toys; and they were. Even the Next Generation era weapons were sold as such. They looked like cheap plastic blocks in the show, and cheap plastic replicas were sold as toys.
