Thirteenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver collectible unveiled by Character Options

The must-have fan collectible is revealed at Comic-Con.

Following its unveiling at San Diego Comic-Con, Character Options is delighted to release further details about its brand new Thirteenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver.

The Sonic Screwdriver is the ever present accessory of the legendary Time Lord, and since the regeneration at the end of 2017, Doctor Who fans across the globe have been awaiting the announcement of a replica collectible Sonic Screwdriver by Character Options.

The new electronic 8” piece from Character Options is the perfect replica of the Doctor’s most trusted device; fully lighting up when activated and featuring brand new diagnostic sound FX.

Prop designer Arwel Wyn Jones talked through the new sonic; “It’s a privilege to have been asked to redesign the iconic sonic screwdriver for the Thirteenth Doctor and a new generation of audiences. I can’t wait for people to see how the Doctor acquires it!”

Alasdair Dewar, Character Options’ Director of Product Development commented: “The new Sonic Screwdriver collectible is a radical departure in look but still retains the classic Sonic abilities and getting access to the prop images early on really helped the development of this toy.”

    I went into forbidden Planet on Tuesday and they had like six screwdrivers and four dolls (I bought a doll and I love it.) and then I went back in on Thursday and they had sold all the screw drivers and only had two dolls left! That’s a good sign!!

    Booboo I couldn’t find the ask a question page but when I go to the b and m sets 2018 I can’t seem to comment or reply on them? Is this a bug or an error on my part?

    • booboo

      comments on the sets are switched off for now because of the lack of communication from B&M as to product codes/ price etc as people were just asking the same think over and over

    Is there any reviews online that compare the two Sonics side by side together?

    I’m very disappointed with forbidden planet international. They’re famous for dispaching items a year after you ordered them!

      Im still waiting on mine too. I should have learned from the time i preordered the 3.75 inch Clara . It too forever to come and everyone else had theirs .
