So, I've been looking at pictures of this off and on whenever people posted them on Flickr and...I have to ask if anyone else happened to notice the similarities?
This is what's at the exhibit: http://www.captmondo.com/wp-content/...crewdriver.jpg
and this is a picture I took of my spring loaded sonic taken from as far back as I could to save the perspective:
Call me crazy but I think the folks that set up the exhibit used one of Russ' Pertwee sonics for this and added the grip stripes and swapped the emitter. The rest, from the flat base, length angles and lines and measurements look exactly the same to me.
Thoughts? Mine are that it's REALLY cool because anyone with one of Russ' Pertwee's has the closest thing to an official replica aside from the CO toy and that's pretty awesome to me.
