Three years in the making, this is the latest incarnation of the infamous Sonic Screwdriver as used by our favourite Time Traveller to get himself out of all manner of scrapes. This is one of the mostly hotly anticipated prop replicas ever and for good reason. Our New Series Sonic Screwdriver is based on that used by Christopher Eccleston in Season 1 and David Tennant in Season 2. It is a guaranteed 1:1 scale replica that finally does justice to the original prop since we have had unprecedented access to original reference material.
Since we rocked the prop replica world with teaser pictures of our prototype late last year, we have further developed and refined the production version to produce what we feel is arguably the finest collector's piece ever offered, and without doubt the most accurate and uncompromised prop replica ever produced. The specifications of our final production piece are as follows:
Accurate dimensions to the filming prop to within 3 thousandths of a millimeter. Yes, 3 microns!!!
Accurately coloured and shaped lens cap. Note the straight sides below the dome and accurate Pantone matched blue Screen accurate paint with baked lacquer automotive top coat
Screen sampled sound chip and working LED light
Hardware has been 100% CNC machined from 303 stainless steel, perspex, brass and 2218 Duralloy using an industry leading Mikron 5 axis water cooled CNC mill
Fully strippable construction using screw threads with tight tolerances throughout
Machined solid perspex internal rod
Correct ridge thickness and shape
Corrected the emitter windows with the correct radial curves on the corners
Serial numbered on the internal battery compartment
Now shipping with durable custom formulated powder coat crackle paint colour-matched to the original Plasti-Kote Crackle Touch paint*
Don't just take our word for it. Here is a sample of what our customers are saying:
"I've nothing against the MFX sonic, and in isolation it's a good piece. However, when compared directly "hand in hand", the Celestial Toystores version is in a league of its own."
"I've seen the MFX and Celestial Toystore versions in person and firmly believe that the Celestial Toystore sonic is the all-around best out there"
"This sonic screwdriver, the one that I can't stop looking at and picking up just to hold, is absolutely fantastic. Utterly, utterly brilliant (to use a few Doctorisms). I've seen lots of prop replicas in my time and bar a scant few they've all had to make compromises either in their build quality, their colouring, their accuracy... However you have done it, this is without doubt the finest reproduction I've seen for many a year."
"I received my screwdriver today and it is stunning! The workmanship on this is simply the very best I’ve ever seen in my 30 years of collecting replica props. The competition will be utterly embarrassed with their product compared to this one. I can’t put into words how happy I am with this prop. This is absolutely the best Doctor Who collectible ever made!"
"This is an absolutely stunning piece of work. I can't pretend to be knowledgeable about the accuracy of the Sonic, but if someone had told me it was an original prop I wouldn't have been at all surprised. Not only does it look the part, it is so incredibly tactile and just "feels" right. If you are looking at this page, chances are you want a replica sonic, and if you want a replica sonic, you *need* this one!"
"This screwdriver is awesome; if it was any more accurate it would actually turn screws! The detail on this is amazing, it’s very solid and well built, and of course comes with sound which really brings the prop to life, and comes in a nice sturdy storage case to keep it safe! "
Our Sonic Screwdriver comes with its own die cut foam lined storage and display case and will be engraved with its own serial number. This is a heavyweight, hefty piece that oozes quality and accurate to fractions of a millimeter to the original prop. This will be THE definitive and best value sonic screwdriver replica to own in 2010.
