    ...it's the sonic screwdriver toy that they put out for last season (the one that starts on sci-fi friday)...but for the new season it's what they're using on-screen because it's so much sturdier than what they were using (which broke constantly)...so while yes it's just the licensed toy it's also an exact replica...

    i'm hoping to get an original series style one to go with it soon and i'm getting my new series tardis key next week...

    i'm also working on some paper props....and if anyone can help it'd be great...does anyone know what font this is or do i have to try to make it photoshop?...

    very cool...thanks...it'll be a fun font to have...though sadly it won't work for this prop...unfortunately a lot of the letters are wrong and it doesn't have numbers...but it's ok...i actually finished the photoshop project version today...after i get ink for my printer tomorrow i'll do a test print and if it turns out well i'll put it up on the free paper props thread (if it doesn't turn out well then i'll go back to work on it)...skott

    Here's my Sonic Screwdriver from the 2005 series:

    I've also got a Silver Nemesis Cyberman replica from the 'classic' series:

    [​IMG]

    and a few other Who related replicas (you can see them here):
    Who gallery
    along with some other Who replicas sent in by other collectors.

    I'm looking forward to having a crack at a few new props from the 2006 series.

    Cheers,

    Simon.

    My wife has a couple of those TARDIS keys, and I made a question mark umbrella when I was in high school, but it broke. :(

    I had a friend of mine cut out the hook shape with his jig saw, then I attached it to a wooden doll head (those little wooden speroids you get at craft stores), sanded the crp out of it and painted candy apple red before attaching to an old black umbrella from which the handle had convieniently broken off of. Oh, I painted the metal tip red, too. I've been meaning to make a better for years, but never got around to it.

    I also modified a cheapy pocket watch with the guts from a cheapy digital wrist watch to look like Sylvester McCoy's (I think it was in "Silver Nemesis"). I think I've still got it around somewhere . . . I'll have to see if I can dig it out and take some pics. :)

    Can you tell that I like the 7th Doctor? ;)

    "Where's the best place to get the new Sonics & the Tom Baker ones?"

    i got my new style screwdriver on ebay...but you can get it from most online stores that get products from the uk....but i'm pretty sure if you can wait 6 or 8 months you'll probably be able to get them at target (assuming the sci-fi channel airings do well)...

    one of the members on this board is currently selling a baker screwdriver...i haven't seen it up close...but the pics he showed were quite nice...check the junkyard...

    I haven't even seen the show yet, I I'm thinking I'll be needing one of those sonic screwdrivers. Man, I always wanted one from the Tom Baker years. I'm hoping I like this new edition, it would give me good reason to go around the hose using it on the cat.

    It looks like the same key used during the Pertwee era, which I'm told is (or resembles) an actual Police Box key. At least that's what a London Met police officer told me ;)

    Actually - the BBC showed a close up of a couple of the new keys in their "Whospy" section of their website and also you can see it clearly in the episode "Father's Day" that the prop is, indeed, nothing more than a run of the mill Yale Key.

    "I have a feeling that the key used in the photoshoot was just a standard 'Yale' type key from a locksmiths looped on a silver string (not chain as I think the real prop would be). They've used the sirt of string that you'd wrap up a present with whereas the key was put on a metak chain in the TV series if memory serves."

    that's all it is on the show is just a yale key...i'm pretty sure it's just hanging on a bit of ball-chain (in the shoot and on the show)...


    "this the image you're refering to?"

    thanks for that pic....the "era" detail will be most helpful...

    Just got my toy Eccleston driver today. :D

    [​IMG]


    What's the deal with the HORRID deep cracked "leathery" texture on the grip... ugh. :confused

    [​IMG]

    Otherwise pretty nifty. I like it.


    [​IMG]


    Yes that's right, you need to use a screwdriver to put the batteries in your Sonic Screwdriver.


    [​IMG]


    The toy plays two sound effects that are very similar to one another, alternating with each button press.

    The amazing thing is how TINY the electronics are... three button-cell batteries and an unbelievably small circuit board.

    Heh heh heh. :D

    yeah, the sounds sounded identical to me. What i figuired from the sound is it changes every other press, the only difference is a low pulsing sound, hold it close and you can hear it, but it has nothing to do with what position its in. And im not sure about the cracked texture, the original looks smooth to me

    Thanks for that - it took a lot of trial and error to get it looking 'right'. There's still room for improvement but I've started other projects - some times you just have to draw a line and move on...

    so is there more than one style key?

    I'm willing to bet there is one or two that actually work in the lock on the props door and the rest are probably just already cut keys they had laying around.

    Mywife put the Tardis Console project on hold until we have a house with either a basement workshop or a garage I can build it in. The neighbors in my apartment building were starting to complain of the sounds of power tools and hammering.

    The Sal of Rassilon you have is the one that Megatron did? I have one of those on my pocket watch and another I carry as a good luck charm. Curtis did a fantastic job on that.

    regarding that Tardis key, ive seen a couple different variations of that one, only a few slightly different, the spacing between the blocks etc, which is accurate to the Baker years version?
