Available next year from QMx comes Star Trek: The Next Generation Communicator Badge.

“Now your cosplay can be perfect! Just add this gleaming, screen-accurate metal badge with its unique magnetic clasp to your uniform, and you’re set.”

TNG_Badge-blueProduct description –

Our TNG communicator badge 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).

TNG_Badge-magWhat sets this wearable badge apart from the original is the clasp, which uses strong, short-field magnets that are embedded in the badge itself and in a glossy back plate. No more pinholes in delicate fabric. It can even be worn on leather and suede.
