Saw Art Asylum's Phase Pistol and Communicator role-play toy yesterday at a comic shop in LA. While not as crude as the original photo-use prototypes, they're still kinda low-end with a little slop in the sculpting and poor choices of materials and paints. The orange ring on the phase pistol's emitter is a real let-down, but I suppose a legal necessity. The try-me package is only for the phase pistol and doesn't do much, just one sound effect and no light (I'm not sure if the set does anything else, but I hope so). I will get this set when I see it at a regular store (sorry, but $25 at the comic shop is ridiculous) but I hope this isn't indicitive of AA's non-figure toys.
