The first “Star Trek Discovery” toy from McFarlane has been unveiled, and it’s the phaser used by the Federation officers like Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green). Many companies are unveiling their 2018 lineup at the Toy Fair in New York, which is happening this week.

Pictures of the phaser have been posted on Trek Movie. The toy comes with lights and screen-accurate sound effects. It also comes with a lockable trigger safety.

The phaser also has a barrel at the front. The player can choose between “stun” and “kill” in the settings, just like how it is in the TV series. The selection is indicated by a light on top of the toy, which also comes with a removable hand phaser and a battery clip with LED.

The report notes that the attention to detail is enough to get fans excited to buy it as a nice addition to their cosplay costumes. The phaser toy is said to be priced at $34.95 (about AU$44.81).

Apart from the phaser toy, McFarlane will also be releasing action figures of Captain Kirk (William Shatner) from the original TV series from the 60s, and Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) from “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

The action figures come with accessories like a Communicator and Phaser Rifle. Each piece is said to be priced at $19.99 (About AU$25.63). They are currently available only on pre-order at Entertainment Earth.

McFarlane Toys has the license to make toys from the franchise, and they have more items planned for the current year. However, fans who are hoping to buy more stuff related to the ongoing “Discovery” series will have to wait for a while. The action figure of Michael Burnham is planned to be released in the first quarter of 2019. Klingon fans will be disappointed to know that although a T’Kuvma action figure was previously planned, it appears that the company may not be making this toy at the moment.
