Galoob was the first company to make Star Trek: The Next Generation toys. This phaser was made in 1988, and had “very” limited distribution, as many stores had dropped the Galoob line by the time this came out. It is a very difficult toy to find. This is still mint in the blister, which has not discolored, on a near mint card. We pulled this straight from an unopened case we bought directly from Galoob in 1988. We are selling this as a collectible and make no guarantees other than as described. It is stored in a smoke and pet free environment.
