Sadly I was a bit too young when Remco released their Star Trek Phaser Gun to the toy shelves back in the day. The Phaser Gun was a 8″long plastic gun with the Star Trek name branded on it and was able to project three images thanks to the ‘Beam Discs’ and would emit an electronic chirp sound when you pulled the trigger. Sadly I couldn’t find a commercial for the original release of the toy but thanks to the Mego Museum I am able to share the TV ad for the second Phaser Gun toy set that while sticks to the idea of a flashlight ‘gun’ it adds an improvement.
