Tom Baker Era DOCTOR WHO Sonic Screwdriver Toy Available Soon

 Character Options is releasing a Doctor Who toy based on the Fourth Doctor's sonic screwdriver.  It sounds like it will likely be available late this month or in early May.

It appears this toy will be very similar to the previously released Third Doctor version, which was a decent piece.  The only minor problem I have with it is the sound effect that is from the Ninth and Tenth Doctors' screwdrivers.  It is nice to have one that makes sound, but it is unfortunate that the higher end metal versions don't have sound chips.

The promotional photo of the toy along with the solicitation information may be seen below.

The Sonic Screwdriver is a versatile tool and defensive device first used by the Doctor in his second incarnation for opening up hatches, panels and controls.

Later uses included cutting through wall sections and even as a conventional screwdriver. During the Third Doctor's exile on Earth he had a larger and more elaborately detailed version, which had a decorated silver handle and black and yellow stripes. This version had even more functions including detecting security traps, remote detonation of mines, opening doors and restraints, creating ignition sparks and again removing screws and fixings.

Later still the Fourth Doctor remade yet another similar style of Sonic Screwdriver but with many more features and functions including micro soldering of circuitry, cutting wires and bulkheads and even detonating Dalek explosives.

In this exclusive release from Underground Toys we present an electronic version of the Third Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver with 2 sounds and spring loaded sound activation.
