Star Trek The Next Generation Communicator Badge

SKU ID #953883
$19.95
Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation: Now your cosplay can be perfect! Just add this gleaming, screen-accurate metal badge with its unique magnetic clasp to your uniform, and you're set. Our TNG communicator badge was crafted using one of the only remaining sets of original molds, which was painstakingly restored in our artisan model shop. With the restored molds we were able to replicate the prop's size and shape exactly. To get the colors and paint details, we studied an actual screen-used badge. And once we had the design of the original matched, we took the whole thing a step further rendering the replica in gold and silver-finished metal (the on-screen props were made of painted resin). What sets this wearable badge apart from the original is the clasp, which uses strong, short-field magnets that are embedded in the badge itself and in a glossy backplate. No more pinholes in delicate fabric. It can even be worn on leather and suede.

    A little too shiny and a little too small.

    Comments about this product:

    This badge claims to be made from the original molds used in the show, but compared to the props in the episodes, it seems noticeably smaller. It is also far too shiny; the props in the show were a dull, nonreflective color, unlike this product. That said, the magnet is a substantial improvement over pin versions, and even though it's on the small side, the shape does seem exactly right.

      This badge is very easy to wear due to the magnetic back. If only it was as easy to make a call as tapping it.

            Comments about this product:

            Beautifully made with a very solid feel. The only issue I have is that the prop from the show has a brushed finish and this one is smooth / reflective. It's a minor point and I'm going to wear it as-is, but don't expect an EXACT match to the original.

              Bought two for my kids. Both became scratched easy without much really wear. We buffed them down and applied a professional level sealant. Magnet fell out of one and I had to be glued back in. Nice cheap toy though.

              Comments about this product:

              Metal has a beautiful lustrous finish that shines in any light, catching the eye. The back, being ovoid, makes for tough re-positioning on the shirt as it will tend to just detach rather than move along with the magnet on the front side. A stronger, centered magnet, or a pair of magnets on each left/right side would enhance this feature. Additionally, with the current state of micro-electronics, adding a bio-touch-sensor and chirp-circuit would easily fit within the current badge's size parameters. Naturally, this would drive up cost, but I'd still buy it anyway!

                                    I live in Britain and it was a hefty investment to have it shipped here but oh it was worth every minute! the product is amazing!
                                    Assuming you`re happy to pay for it, then it is a really great product! (and also slightly bigger than expected)

                                        The badge is very heavy and well made. However after I finally received it, the silver part of the badge has a thick, black painted line around it. I was very disappointed! I went back and looked at the picture and you can see it. The line blends with the reflection.
