1990 version of the classic communicator. Interestingly enough, this last copycat was certainly the best. The grid was custom perforated brass, the body was highly detailed plastic, but unfortunately, his moire pattern was wrong. in addition, their metal parts were pewter, including the moire pattern ring. They quickly upgraded their pewter parts to aluminum & stainless steel and even their  new moire pattern was perfect. In fact, their replicas were being sold for a time by the time of the Smithsonian Institute's gift shop during the Star Trek Display in 1991.This one has jewels and collars, not train wheels.
