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 Star Trek Costumes, and you're set.

The Star Trek Communicator Badge Replica was crafted using one of the only remaining sets of original molds, 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).

Stay tight with your crew and starship with the Am Star Trek: The Next Generation Communicator Badge Replica.

Comments about this product:

I was going to use this on my high end Anovos uniforms, but now it is on my Star Trek leather jacket.......I replaced it with my Roddenberry exact screen made replica (true prop grade) because I want the real thing on my real uniform. However, the QMX is very nice, highly detailed and clean, even though it is way too shiny and the oval is not thick enough to match the original prop. I repainted the whole thing with rich matte colors for an authentic look which turned out fantastic. The QMX is just too nice not to use, and makes an excellent jacket badge.....since there was no star fleet leather jacket.....no harm, no foul! Oh yes, I put larger neo dimium magnets on it (25mm x 4mm N52 strength) for a much stronger connection......it was definitely needed and works great now. Even though not screen acurate, I still recomend it to those who are willing to make the necessary changes.

              Comments about this product:

              I was skeptical about paying so much for this but it was worth every penny. This is not plastic or cheap hollow metal thing. This is SOLID and the shimmering finish is gorgeous.
              Personally I was beside myself with memories of my friends and I making these as kids. It is so neat to hold what I feel to be the nearest I've been to the TNG franchise. Thanks.
              The original TV prop was made of resin but this feels like how I would have imagined. That being said it pulls down on lightweight shirts. The magnet is perfect and I can place it anywhere. Though one word of caution, I was holding my toddler son and he knocked it off right onto his moms foot (pointy side) that got it banned for a while.
              One last thing I would add is the ability to have the communicator sound on it as an option. It would be too cool to have that. But this is nice enough as it is. I read that some people received badges with poor paint jobs but mine came sooooo clean. The black paint on the border can chip off if you wear it a lot but I can easily retouch with model paint.

              Comments about this product:

              Badge may be too heavy for shirt/jacket. Magnet needs to have a stronger glue holding it to badge. I had to re-glued magnet back on when I tried to put on jacket with the badge on the jacket when badge separated from magnet fell off and dropped to floor. Magnet separated from badge.

                  LOVE. My local bar has a weekly Star Trek day where we watch the shows and dress up a bit. My boyfriend got one of these each for me, himself, and the bartender. They look great, stay on, and don't bother or poke you through the back of them because they use a magnet and aren't a pin.

                        The badge has been designed very well, and is authentic-looking. However, the finish on it is yet to be desirable. There are dust particles everywhere under the paint, and right in the center (silver part) is a large lump, like an air pocket. This is not something that I would expect from a "replica" as the title suggests. Order #14582389

                          This piece overall is great! It's good to finally have an "official" STTNG metal communicator based on actual resin props. Unfortunately though, the chrome laminated top plate of the arch, which is glued onto the main body, is slightly offset. My brother's came with a bubble in the chrome too; his top plate was also crooked.

                            This comm. badge prop is one of the best replicas produced in a long time. The magnetic clasp is an excellent addition/change to this item, as well as the fact that it is made entirely of metal. They did a great job designing this.

                              Was hoping to get an exact replica combadge as a gift for friend's cosplay. THis was close but not quite accurate and best suited as part of a halloween costume and not for serious cosplay. The pic of the item is not accurate to the product. Pretty disappointed.

                                This was a gift for my husband and he is big into Star Trek. He was so excited when he got it. The first thing he did was put it on. He really loves it.
