We last heard from new Star Trek licensee Factory Entertainment back in February when we caught up with their team at ToyFair in New York City — and after four months, the company has announced their first tie-in product for 2019: a golden replica of Star Trek: Discovery‘s Type II phaser which will launch as a San Diego Comic Con exclusive.
While we first saw a prototype of a “normal” Discovery phaser sculpt at ToyFair, the approximately-3″ item — one of the first of Factory Entertainment’s KUZO-brand items — will be a gold-painted variant when it debuts at San Diego in July.
KUZOS™ are detailed die cast metal collectibles based on iconic movie and television characters and props. KUZOS™ are designed to provide pop culture fans with a wide range of high-quality officially licensed collectibles without stressing their budgets or available display space.
Our first wave of KUZOS™ will include iconic metal miniatures from fan favorite titles like Shazam!, Aquaman, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and more! Future waves of KUZOS™ will feature Harry Potter, The Beatles, Lord Of The Rings and many more!
To celebrate the introduction of KUZOS™, we’re thrilled to offer 3 extra special 2019 Convention Exclusives KUZOS™ collectibles (each sold separately) from Game Of Thrones, Star Trek and Wonder Woman.
Every KUZO™ comes in a collector quality clam shell package. For a museum style impact, collectors can display their KUZOS™ collection in a custom-designed, multi-tiered glass and acrylic display case, available to purchase here on our website.
The miniature phaser replica will be on sale at Factory Entertainment’s booth at San Diego Comic Con (booth #2743) from July 17-21… but for those of you who can’t make it to SDCC this year, the company has also launched online preorders for the tiny Type II, where you can reserve one of these Discovery KUZO sculpts for only $10 each for shipment right to your home after the convention is over.
We’re not sure yet when to expect any of Factory Entertainment’s other planned Star Trek products, but we’ll keep watch for their additional product announcements as the year continues.
This marks the third SDCC-exclusive Star Trek product so far announced for 2019, following Icon Heroes’ replica of Emperor Georgiou’s dagger, and Hallmark’s ISS Enterprise ornament — with its low price point and online ordering, will Factory Entertainment’s golden phaser find a place in your collection?
