    MIB Neuralizer Question

    Hello all!
    I have a question to all of the owners of the MR Neuralizer.
    How durable is it? How heavy is it? If I take good care of it,
    will it still scratch and indent or break in anyway? My future hopes
    it to get ones myself, thats the reason why Im asking you this.
    Thanks everyone!

    Re: MIB Neuralizer Question

    heavy, yes. nicely made. but when i got it, i played with it a few times, removed the battery, and it has been in display case ever since.

    from what i've read here and there over the years, if you use it repeatedly, it is subject to breaking, especially the "spring open" mechanism, which isn't surprising because it wasn't made ti be played with day to day, but displayed and activated every now and then, as in maybe 10 times a year....but that's just my best guess.

    let's see what others have to say...

    Mine had an issue where the chrome was scraping off. Every time I opened it spelled doom for my chrome finish.

    I remember when I first heard MR announce that they would be "chrome plated brass" I remembered that is exactly what Razor scooters were made out of. I remembered how quickly the chrome scraped off of that.

    It's a nice piece, but Factory Entertainment is about to release a better replica this year. May want to hold off and save yourself the extra dough.

    We will indeed be releasing officially licensed MIB prop replicas this year starting with the Neuralyzer. We are still in development so don't have any firm details at this time, but this video should answer some questions

    There is no other info anywhere else on the item. You may have overpaid. May be a scam. My browser warned me before going to the page.

    Re: MIB Neuralizer Question

    i can't tell if the site is fishy, however, my advice in these situations is to just refrain from pre ordering anything until there's official word from the manufacturer. lets you know what you buying before hand and what to expect. no need to rush.

    i must say tho, there "worm guy" bobble head looks pretty great. I hope those are actual products, they look awesome.

    At comicon last year they did say that the neuralyzer would be just under 500.00. I'm still hoping they do the first movie version of K's gun.

    Whew, I doubt that's going to happen that thing is massive! I'm hoping to be able to fix mine up. Needs a ton of work though. The Tri-Barrel seems like it'd be a little easier to do from a companies standpoint.

    Wait until you have your own, show it off and let me see the differences you talk about.

    As Steve knows you can't please everyone. :unsure

    Re: MIB Neuralizer Question

    FYI... The licensing folks told us they wanted the current years on there.

    I agreed that it would be cool to do, but wasn't really given a choice...

    As always...it is EASY to bag on an existing product. It is HARDER to actually make a better one.

    We shall see... I look forward to it!

    Not from there. I want to see the real FE price and details. I also will not buy it if the sound effects are not corrected. Not for almost $500

    Wonder why FE is selling MIIB Neuralyzers with MIB packaging? Hmm..

    Lets hope the J2s are aluminum or at least a plated metal instead of resin or metalized plastic, I don't need any more burger king toys..:lol

    400 aint that bad as opposed to the mark up for the MR ones on fleebay. its nice, still unsure if i should get it, i really want to see there J2 pop up.

    do you guys think they won't release any J2 info after they see how well the Neuralyzers sold?

    I'd like to know this too. I wish they would give us the specs on it. Kind of lame they don't tell you anything about it. Have any improvements been made or is this just an MR regurgitation?

    Aluminum construction, like the MR piece, most vendors are showing a $ 379 price tag.

    They said they made a bunch of improvements over the MR version including correct dates (95,96,97 vs 05,06,07), clearer/louder sound fx, made the dials easier to move, it's more screen accurate in a few places and a couple of other things I can't recall. I just picked up a mint MR w/ everything included for $200 so I'm good for right now but it looks like it's going to be a great piece.

    hmm $400. Yeah I picked one up for around the $200 price range. I like the MIB franchise, but I dont see spending the extra dough when all I am going to do is use it as a display. It does sound nice though for the die hard fans. Would like to see some more detailed pics.

    I'm a huge MIB fan, but as I already have the MR version, I don't think I can swing four hundred bones for another one. I thought they were supposed to be doing the MIB 3 version?

    I'm also curious to see what the details are on this prop when it's available for purchase. I did kick myself for missing the MR one, but after hearing some collector's having issues with a plastic hold piece wearing out, I'm hoping this one will have a better construction.
