Star Trek-Themed Nerf Phasers Coming In 2023


Hasbro has announced a new movie-themed Nerf arsenal. This time lock and load with some Starfleet gear! The new phasers are themed after the last great Star Trek film: First Contact. The exterior of the Type 3 phaser looks like the Borg is assimilating it, and the toy has lights and sounds to match. The more significant Starfleet weapon has a 5-dart clip, while the classic Type 2 phaser can only fire one at a time.

Pre-orders are open now through October 2nd, with an expected release date of November 24th, 2023.

In other Nerf news, the ALIENS M41-A Pulse Rifle is supposed to ship at the beginning of October. I pre-ordered mine last year, and we’ve not heard anything since then. No pictures or videos of the final products. Nothing. This is something I dislike about doing business with Hasbro. The company’s lack of communication, especially concerning products that are $200+, leaves a lot to be desired.


Engage! the 35th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation with these Nerf LMTD Star Trek Starfleet Type 3 Phaser and Starfleet Type 2 Phaser! They capture the look of the phasers handled by Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The Type 3 motorized dart blaster has light-up effects that simulate the look of being assimilated by the Borg—in homage to the film, Star Trek: First Contact—light-up phaser effects, phaser sounds, authentic First Contact movie sounds, an internal 5-dart clip, and fires 1 dart at a time.

The $119.99 set comes with the following features:

  • TYPE 3 PHASER WITH LIGHT AND SOUND EFFECTS: Light-up areas include Borg assimilation effects and phaser effects. Includes authentic movie sounds from Star Trek: First Contact film and phaser action sounds
  • TYPE 3 PHASER FEATURES MOTORIZED DART BLASTING: Power up the motor in this automatic Nerf dart blaster and take aim at attacking Borg drones. Fires 5 foam darts in a row from the internal 5-dart clip
  • TYPE 2 PHASER BLASTER: The phaser fires 1 dart and has a pull back priming handle. Load 1 dart into the blaster, prime, and press the button to launch the dart
  • INCLUDES 7 NERF ELITE DARTS: This awesome set of 2 iconic Star Trek phasers comes with 7 Official Nerf Elite foam darts
