Our TNG communicator badge was crafted using one of the only remaining sets of original molds, which was 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
What 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
Magnet Dimension is 2" x 1.65"
Crafted using original molds
