Comments about this product:

I got this cup to put up, But when I received it the handle was broken in shipping, I called ASAP and let the store know what had happened. But again My heart was broken, No more in stock!! They replaced the cup with another one. I love the new one but I still want the one I ordered. It has Spock on it and Now Spock is gone RIP!! Again Heart Broken!! I watched the original series when it first came out!! I was a kid but loved it!!

      Comments about this product:

      I purchased this way before Christmas as a gift for my husband. It arrived broken and was shipped back AT MY EXPENSE for a replacement well before Christmas. I did not receive the replacement one until the 1st week in February. So much for a Christmas gift!! It was smaller than I expected and the color/image change is barely noticeable. This is one purchase I am sorry I made. I have purchased other things from this site that I am extremely pleased with, however, this mug is definitely NOT one of them.

        Comments about this product:

        Original mug was white background so images seemed to completely 'disappear' when hot liquids were added to mug. In this version, the images barely faded so it didn't seem they 'went through' the transporter at all. Maybe the manufacturer should return to the all white background

        I was really disappointed in the "change" when hot water was added, an the image on the mug when cold is fuzzy and difficult to see. Waste of money!

                    The picture needs to transform we more pizazz . It basically leaves a white shape behind. Not that impressive. And it took weeks and weeks to arrive. I'm still waiting for part of my order from December

                    The mug is just not very attractive, pretty plain colors and look, and the "transporter" effect when hot water is added is just O.K. it basically just washes out their features, I guess I wanted a little sparkle or something. I think this item could have been designed with a bit more WOW factor.

                        This is advertised as a transporter mug where the figures disappear. Well, this is only partially true. Think of a black and white drawing. The black disappears, but the white background remains. It's a cute an interesting idea, but does not achieve the desired effect. Would I buy this again? No. Would I be glad to receive as a gift? Only if I didn't already have one. Overall, disappointing.

                            My sister and I got this for our dad for father's day. He liked it. The only problem is that it's just the black lines on the figures that fade, not the white background behind them. I guess that would be kind of hard to manage, though...

                            I have bought other "heat sensitive" mugs before such as the Doctor Who Disappearing TARDIS mug (works great!!) so I was really excited to find a Star Trek mug that was heat sensitive as well since my boyfriend is a HUGE Star Trek fanatic. However, once I received it, I tried it out with hot water and the image hardly changed at all! I had to look super close to see any change and when I did. I literally had to run scolding hot water on the OUTSIDE of the mug directly onto the image for anything to happen. Obviously that is hardly practical since people typically put the liquid INSIDE the mug. I was horribly disappointed and so let down on this product. The image quality itself is hardly desirable either even without the heat sensitivity. Save your money and go with a different product. I will likely be returning mine :-/ It also didn't come in a product box or any instructions on how to wash it (other heat sensitive mugs you can't put in the dishwasher or it ruins the image).
