EDIT: FULL PICS BELOW! (Check my 5th post!)


 


As I'm currently shopping for gifts for my family...


I purchased a toy/replica of the Type 1/Type 2 phaser seen in The Motion Picture and Wrath of Khan for my younger brother. (He already owns a toy/replica of the Type 1/Type 2 phaser from TOS.) And that got me thinking about phasers.


Which one do you think looks the coolest?


 


My vote would have to go to the phaser seen in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. It's extremely reminiscent of the Type 1/Type 2 seen in TOS, but is much sleeker. Quite a hot-looking pistol.

Don't know if I can idnetify them well without pics.  I think the TOS phasers are iconic, loved them.  Behind that, I like the film assault phasers and the ENT phase pistols. 


Beyond those, I like the TOS phaser rifle and the TR-116 ballistic rifle from DS9.

Yeah, sorry for the lack of pics...


But I'm afraid I have no idea how to post images since this site was redesigned a few years back.


Anyone care to assist?


 


BTW, phase pistols, laser pistols, and ballistic rifles aren't technically phasers. The Type 3 phaser rifle seen in "Where No Man Has Gone Before?" Well, what can I say? I ran out of poll options.

I had never even though what Phaser I like best for more than 30 before I read this topic...


Can't say I have one, though I prefer TOS style weapons. I rather like 2009s version, with the exception of the flippity-flip function to distinguish between stun and kill.


Sure are plenty though...





 I snuck this pic in there...so sue me.

Thanks, amigo!


I see we have the original TOS Type 1/Type 2 phaser at the top.


Next, we have the revised Type 1/Type 2 phaser from TMP and TWOK.


Then you put up an image of the Type 2 seen in TFF and TUC.


Finally, a cute blonde vaporizing a Mugato that got a bit "grabby." Nice.

You forgot to mention the cute blond is using a TOS Flip Comunicator/Type 2 Phaser combo. Perfectly alright. I didn't notice either till after I posted.

Yeah, it's time for a beam out.


The ship's counselor is about to get an earful...


Ha.


 


Anyway, how are you posting pics, Guillermo?


I've got a ton of phaser images, but - again - I have no idea how to insert 'em into a post.

Oh I just look them up on a a search engine, copy the thumbnail image and paste it here with right click or Ctrl+V.


And I picked the Type 2 Phaser from Search For Spock, mostly because when that ray hit the Klingon, that guy flew a good 25 feet. Effect made no sense but it didn't matter to me.

MR, are we talking phasers or girls holding phasers?

I think I prefer alien phasers and disruptors to the Federation weapons.


The Cardassians have some great looking disruptors, as do the Romulans and Andorians.


Jolan Tru, may your day be filled with peace.
