It’s finally possible to take calls on your very own official Bluetooth Star Trek communicator

Get excited, Trekkies: an official Star Trek communicator is coming to market. This authentic, replica Starfleet comm not only looks the part but also functions as a Bluetooth speakerphone.

Comprised of machined aluminum and textured ABS, it features a wireless charging stand engraved with the phrase “U.S.S. Enterprise Standard Issue Communicator”. 

According to StarTrek.com:

The Wand Company, creators of the Star Trek Original Series Communicator, have created the most accurate replica ever made, designed using the first ever structured-light 3D scans taken of the Alpha Hero Prop.

This piece of Star Trek memorabilia is priced at $149.95 and is currently available for pre-sale with deliveries slated for January 2016. Those of you at San Diego Comic Con can get an early look at it by visiting ThinkGeek’s booth (#3351). 

Can’t wait until January for your Star Trek communicator? There are plenty of other re-creations for Trekkies such as this Starfleet comm phone case or this replica toy that features famous Star Trek communicator sounds.

The Star Trek communicator is isn’t The Wand Company’s first product to make a splash:

Whovians can own a universal Bluetooth remote modeled after the Tenth Doctor and Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdrivers. These highly rated Sonic Screwdrivers allow the user to control home entertainment equipment with gestures. Up to 39 motions can be programmed to function with TVs, DVD players, iPod docks, and more. And yes, it lights up and makes sounds from the Doctor Who universe.

Muggles needn’t stepfoot into Ollivander’s to get their own wand. The Kymera wand functions similarly to the Sonic Screwdrivers. Fans of Harry Potter can control Bluetooth products in their own home with their wand using 13 different infrared commands.

Capcom’s official life-size Mega Man helmet includes working LED lights

With a celebrated Super Smash Bros debut, a sold-out Nintendo amiibo, and a possible spin-off in the works, Mega Man and his fans have had a good 12 months—but this full size, wearable Mega Man helmet takes the cake.

Capcom announced this incredible helmet will be making its debut at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Although a pre-order date has not yet been announced, the helmet will be available in limited quantities for purchase exclusively through the Capcom Mega store.

According to Capcom:

Made of high quality ABS plastic with a high polish finish, authentic proportions and details, plus working LED lights! A unique clamshell hinge allows the front and back half of the helmet to easily open up to comfortably fit your head inside the soft padded interior for a perfect fit.

Pricing info has not yet been released.

In November 2014, Mega Man made his debut in the highly rated Super Smash Bros for Wii U. The official Mega Man amiibo, released February 20, sold out immediately and has only re-appeared in stores and online a few times since then. Compared to many of the other Super Smash Bros Nintendo amiibos, Mega Man is a perfect likeness of his digital counterpart. If you can’t wait to get your hands on this guy, head over to Amazon. Prices fluctuate, but a Mega Man amiibo will generally run about $20 + shipping.
