    A clever idea long overdo!
    I'd like to see a 'Next-Gen' version as well...

    I was going to get one ... till I saw the $50 shipping. Standard Mail ! ie. the cheapest - USPS 1st Class International, no more than $10-12 for an item this size. Even less if it fits in a flat box. Daylight robbery for overseas shipping :(

    You're telling me they were supposed to go on sale today and already sold out? It's displaying the same message it was a week ago. Are we sure they just haven't come in yet?

    I saw those this afternoon while I was waiting for something to finish at work. I like it, but I don't want it motion activated or the whoosh sound effect. Just red alert or the intercom sound effect when you push the button.

    I just put one at the doorway to the prop room. It works well as there's no door just a doorway so the 'swoosh' goes off when someone comes in.
    Worth every penny! :thumbsup

    Ya know, if I didn't enjoy my Tyler Durden robe so much I'd have to think about one of those Trek bathrobes.

    Someone shoot a video of the door thing would ya!?

    I just mine, I love it!! I only have one issue, I wish it were 1/1 scale. I am already thinking of building a correct scale version using the electronics, well worth getting.

    You know my Cat who does'nt budge when I shoot my Flame Pistol

    You should have seen her when I put this on the floor with the door sound.

    She thought the thing was hissing at her at first.

    When she finally realized it was one of Daddys stupid toys she darts in front of it fast trying to make it go off.

    Those were the first 2 days now she can't be bothered with it!! :lol

    I have both and I can tell you I get no reaction while wearing the TD robe from anyone that sees it.
    When I wear my captain's robe, people lose their minds! It's very well made.

    Got mine today. Very cool, but the sensor on the right hand side doesn't function. Going to have to return it.

    Update... Doh, I just saw the sensor direction switch on the back. Nice feature.

    See, that's what I love about my TD robe. It's like 'bro' radar. I instantly like anyone who knows what it is. :thumbsup

    At a glance, it looks pretty close to scale. Can't be off by much is it?

    A good bit smaller at 6.5" x 5.5" the top left frosted "acrylic" piece seems even smaller in scale.

    I'm hoping to rip out the electronics and use them in a more realistic version.

    It only makes 3 sounds - the video is just missing the door swish.

    Gah, now backordered another "1-3 weeks" at ThinkGeek. This is starting to remind me of the delays for those Diamond Select (?) phaser replicas/toys.
