    Thats pretty dang spiffy.

    Always thought they should have shaped the TOS DVD set plastic case like a tricorder. Its just about the right size.

    Only sound is from the radio, no effects sound. It's so-so sound. Basically think a cheap FM-AM radio tossed inside.

    Is that full scale or is it it 2/3rds scale like the Playmates?

    From what I've seen it's 2/3 scale. Better looking than the Platmtes though.

    About two months before the complete three-season boxed set was announced, I bought the entire original series on 40 separate discs (two episodes per disk). :cry

    It was my single largest order ever from Amazon.

    No, it's actually a bit bigger than full scale. I'll try and put up a pic with it next to my MR tricorder as a comparison.

    It's neat to have something a little more unique in tricorders. At least in the USA.

    When it comes to the Japanese DVD sets and the extras they get we here in the United States really do get the short end of the stick. :(

    That IS pretty cool, but who isn't thinking it would have been cooler if it was a DVD player?

    You know it can be done with today's technology.

    The mock-up, photoshopped version from their website or do you have actual pictures of the actual item for sale? The picture at the site below is clearly photoshopped, and badly done at that. :lol

    Yes. eBay, you might need to go to the Japanese version of eBay too. Good luck in the hunt.

    No such animal as Ebay Japan, unfortunately. But I have one up on eBay right now.

    BTW, the MAIN function of this tricorder is an EMF scanner. Check out the junkyard for more details.

    Japan always has nice exclusives that go with thier DVDs. I rememeber they had I-Robot head and Aliens head exclusive dvd storages. Those were very nice done as well.
