    Now don't that look familliar for some reason. :) That's an image of mine. Here's a video of it: Romana Sonic Screwdriver.MP4 - YouTube

    I don't mind if you get one made or do a run. Mine was made by Roguescout back in the day.

    Here's some more shots for your reference.

    Responded. :)

    I texted him and RogueScout doesn't mind if you get one made based off the pictures of his work as long as he gets credited with the basis of the design. He spent a lot of time researching it before he made his short run of them many, many years ago.

    It would be cool to have one that could collapse. Probably wouldn't be that difficult.

    One never knows until one tries. We'll see who comes up with what.

    If there's enough people interested, I could do a run of static versions very cheaply.

    I'd be interested in one if it weren't too pricey. :)

    Considering there's no evidence that it did collapse, I'd be fine with a static piece

    I wouldn't mind having a spare, that's for sure, and we all know Ull Dar Borealis sure as hell wants one. :thumbsup

    Is that Sonic static or does it retract like the Baker style? I have never really noticed that sonic until I saw your, now I want one :lol:lol:lol.

    Which episode did that pop up in. I remember seeing it but can not remember the episode.

    You know, the way the color is in that image I wonder if that's why RussRep made a few gold headed sonics?

    The odds are good considering Anakin Starkiller and RussRep have both expressed an interest in doing this prop and I've been brow beating the tar out of of RogueScout to get his backside in gear and get back into the shop too.

    It's weird but even though I like having certain prop replicas (like every sonic ever 11 times over) I don't go in for the exclusivity of it. I'd rather a lot of people share my joy at having one of these then just me in a corner coveting mine and snarling at anyone that gets too close. That's just...wrong to me somehow. I hope I'm being sufficiently helpful in getting these things to happen for people that either want to make them or want to have them.

    One could be of the sonic RogueScout made for himself and the other mine. Strange that they'd differ though. It might just be different cameras and different lighting conditions and still the same prop.

    I could swear I saw one or 2 over in E-space once upon a time... couple years ago... probably from that Time Lord's Pocket bloke. But I'm checking out the Bay at the moment, and not seeing any of his screwdrivers up there right now. Curiouser and curiouser.

    Sadly TLP rolled up his awning and turned his sign to CLOSED a while ago and won't be back at it. :-(

    That sucks. Sucks quite a lot. He made absolutely awesome replicas of the 4th Doctor's Sonic. :(

    I know. My first McGann sonic replica was made by him and he really was great to work with.

    I have to say that I've been blessed to be able to work with and help (with the research data) a good number of very talented good people when it comes to replicas of the sonic. Several of them members here. Getting more awesome sonics for my collection certainly doesn't hurt either. ;)

    If a Romana sonic happens, I'd be interested!

    Would like one to go with the wife's Destiny of the Daleks coat I'm making for her...

    This is about the only screen grab I've found on the web. If someone has Horns of the Nimon on DVD and wouldn't mind doing some screen grabs of this scene it would help.

    I did a quick check of youtube because you never know but no luck.

    Good grabs. Nice and clean. Shame we don't have a good idea of what the handle looks like.

    Look at the width (and thickness) of the color bands, I am pretty sure that is colored electrical tape wrapped around the shaft :lol:lol:lol. Also looking at that photo, I think the top of the slide is tapered just like the Baker sonic only with bands cut in (or taped on).

    Why doesn't someone get in touch with Lala Ward, she still has that sonic and would probably be willing to share it if asked.

    My post to the other thread, just an FYI..
    RS

    The reason why they are both different is because one was made for Wayne aka Propreplicator (R.I.P) and the second one was made for Greatwazoo42. There is a variant due to me fiddling with the design. I believe they were both created about two years apart. Keep in mind... much of what I created was the best I could do off of a VIDEO tape. I am almost 100% positive after seeing the new screen grabs off the DVD that the original was probably cobbled together with known parts and electrical tape. I highly doubt the prop makers back in the 70's ever thought this thing would be seen in the clarity or detail of DVD or Blueray we have today. Also given the lack of budget by the BBC, I highly doubt it was a custom machined piece for Horns of Nimon.

    I had no idea Lalla kept her sonic. She mentioned this at a con or in an interview somewhere? Well I don't have her contact/agent info but if anyone does and wants to take point on it, I'm all ears.
