So, Penny Lane, you got a Dr. McCoy medical tricorder and scanner. You're a true TOS fan alright. Do the replicas make any noises?
Hi, HG! Yeah...I'm a total TOS Trekkie, there's no denying that.
My husband (also a fan) and I are discussing traveling to a major ST convention later this summer too.
As for the tricorder and scanner...to answer your question about them making noises, I'd have to say yes and no. The scanner makes noises when you press a button, but like I mentioned earlier, you have to rotate its spinner manually.
My tricorder, however, is pretty temperamental and will only play noises sometimes. I made sure that it was on the "Play" mode instead of the "Try Me" mode, but it constantly chokes up anyway. I can't tell if the wiring is faulty or if the batteries are dying, and sadly, I can't change the batteries because the screw head on the battery door is broken. *big sigh*
For a plastic toy, it's just decent, but at least it looks good as a decorative item or a costume accessory.
