First look at mini-phaser book

Things From Another World have added a cover to their listing of the forthcoming Star Trek: Phaser; a mini-model and book set from Running Press. It looks like this:

For more than forty years, Star Trek has made a phenomenal cultural impact. Now with the new movie well on its way, trekkies everywhere will want to get their hands on this kit. The kit includes a light-up phaser (to get all the bad guys!) and a 32-page book on the history of phasers, and lots of fun quotes and images from the classic show.

This 32 page book is part of Running Press' diverse range of small booklets and models and/or games, which includes such novelty gifts as a mini TARDIS, a Bat-signal projector, mini Stonehenge, and magnetic kama sutra!

Due out in April, I guess retailer interest in this has been reasonably good, because Amazon UK now also have a listing for Star Trek: Enterprise, another miniature kit due in December. I would imagine this will come with a miniature model of the Enterprise (TOS as well?).
