Oh, no. Someone hurry and stop that fake, burning phaser from being washed away with the rest of the trash. Hurry.
Fake? FAKE? Experts have examined this phaser and anonymously attested to its authenticity in non-binding statements that will never be released to the public.

Also, I have personally screen match the HA phaser to this video.

A literal smoking gun.

Just so I'm up to speed, this phaser is so authentic, the leading website dedicated to researching Star Trek props had to scrub any and all references to phasers from their pages?
While I/we predicted they’d remove the so called 5th hero from the site shortly after the auction, the removal of all the great research that site had…..is a real shame, even if they did flush a lot of their rep down the toilet with that bogus authentication.

It's probably for the best, though. At least people won't stumble across the site and see a false (perhaps even coerced) endorsement for a forged prop mixed in among all of the otherwise excellent research and images.

Hmmm, have you considered Yoda does popular songs. Just do familiar tid bits of songs, but that would be fun.

It is your time and your voice, but the opening of The Who's My Generation, Donna Summer's Hot Stuff chorus, stuff like that in spoken word Yoda might have a niche. Mixing the words around, does as Yoda (instead of "as Yoda does") would be icing on da cake

As this is essentially a tribute to TOS, I'd like to point out that the Mighty Shatner did a spoken-word cover of "Common People" by Pulp that is surprisingly good, but might sound even better if done by Yoda...

Love it too, “your gonna die” is my favorite
beat me to it!

Remember, spoken word doesn't have to be in tune.

Still trying to figure out who has the best use of arbitrary meter, Christopher Walken or Shatner.

I also have that record in my collection.

We used to have “William Shatner over-acting appreciation” parties, but sadly no longer…
The Shatner is a unit of acting. Just like the Dane Cook is a unit of comedy.

Whady-yamean "over acting"? I'd suggest Rod Steiger from The Specialist as a unit of over-acting.

Hail is rated in relative ball size. Earwax using the dental fillings conversion chart.
Bellybuttons from the HEB scale, Hyperthyroid Eyed Beholder. "Outsie" and "innie" are so 2015.

Or unless a new fake shows up for sale. We must be vigilant.

Personally, I think we’re having a swell time mocking the whole thing, as it deserves to be. Perhaps the perpetrators are watching, and I hope they know what we think about all this.
This thread needs to be re-titled to include Coke fraudsters as well.

Beware of trolls picking fights in an effort to shut it down! Ya don't want to be a slave to that *wink*

The truth is no longer "out there", it is actually in this thread, well-documented around the fluff.

Your input is valuable and this thread is a goldmine for people seeking good information *AND* entertainment from the grind

I like cheese.

Here is a thought, why not start the annual RPF awards? We could have topics and different awards going to categories. For instance, this could win for the most derailed a thread of 2021! Etc.

I’d like to nominate the perpetrators of this scam for “best fake phaser sold at auction everrrrrrr” and Diet Coke as “most perfectly average Coke, but still better than Abrams”.
