Here are a couple from the episode "The Apple" if I'm not mistaken:

Here is one I picked up on ebay a few months ago. I believe it is one of PhaserOnStun's builds.

I will post a comparison of the Playmates and PhaserOnStun's build tomorrow.

yep i am playing with a Playmates now. :)

it is larger and a lot longer. :thumbsdown

for an example, it big enough to use two AAA bateries in the black section.

i was wondwering about using the soundboard in a correct size model. :p

its sad that someone has not made a static kit to sell .. :angel

Here is a comparison between what looks to me like an exact replica and Playmates scanner.

here is a pic of my prototype i built this week. :)

the is a rough test piece with a smooth body so far.

i scaled it from the pick of the Playmates next to the correct size.

i did get all the electronics from the playmate scanner inside. :D

i had to go to 3 button batteries at 4.5 volts to have the ampherage of the original 2 aaa's at 3 volts.
also a 1" speaker in the bottom.

but it all fit :p

and sounds loud.

i have three flashing diodes i am going to add to the acrylic part for flashies since the motor idea is on hold till i find one small enough.

Cute. That almost looks like a 35mm film canister.

p.s. What is the transparent top? Do you remember sending me a section of a transparent crystal/glass tube for use in a 'V' pistol I was building at the time? If you still have some, that stuff looks really amazing when lit. It might make an acceptable alternative to a spinning inner tube.

Scuttlebutt says that the clear top part, is an old prescription pill bottle. The grip is (or is a casting of) a screwdriver grip (in rubber).

Here's an old old kit I picked up years back, once sold by New Eye Studio...

It's the one in pieces... the built one in that shot is my HMS from Rodd.com.

the picture of a kit below was sent to me for reference. i dont know the maker.

whats funny is that the soundboard in it looks like the one out of the Playmates scanner. :p

wonder how many were scavaged for their boards. like the Playmates Phasers. :lol
