Twelfth Doctor’s Second Sonic Screwdriver Blasts into Character Options’ Collection

After months of speculation it is now official, the Twelfth Doctor’s Second Sonic Screwdriver is to be part of the Character Options’ toy collection.

The first images have been released with confirmation that the eagerly awaited Sonic will be on sale within weeks!

sonic-1

This new toy version is a faithful recreation of the current Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver which debuted in the Series 9 Episode ‘Hell Bent’.

This is the first Sonic to have 4 light modes and four sound FX. The model has been designed as a replica from the Series 9 Prop.

sonic-2

As all fans would know, the Doctor has carried many Sonic Screwdrivers of various designs throughout his lifetimes, ranging from a simple silver coloured tube to more complex illuminated and articulated versions.

sonic-3

This second Sonic for the Twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, was ‘gifted’ to him by the TARDIS itself after his previous version was lost.

Although we are yet to discover all of the new Sonic’s abilities, like the Doctor himself, it has become ever more complex and mysterious.

sonic-5

This multipurpose tool features numerous settings and can open most locks, detect all manner of deadly rays, read bio-signs and generate Sonic waves of great power.

Alasdair Dewar, Head of Product Development at Character Options commented:

“Since this Twelfth Doctor’s Second Sonic Screwdriver appeared at the end of series 9, we have been inundated by fan requests to produce a toy replica as part of our toy range. We are therefore very proud to finally be able to reveal it. The Sonic Screwdriver has historically been one of the most sought after toys for fans and collectors alike and we hope they will be as delighted with it as we are.”

The Character Options’ Twelfth Doctor’s Second Sonic Screwdriver costs just SRP £14.99


For a limited time only, exclusively on the Doctor Who Shop (USA and Canada), fans will receive a Gift with Purchase – one pack of three exclusive trading cards from the Twelfth Doctor’s limited edition set – with the new Sonic Screwdriver, while supplies last.

    Looks like they may be changing the branding to the collector series colours and ditching the blue and yellow of the 3.75″ figures. Either that or this is part of the collector series.

      They we’re all supposed to be put up at the same time. Seriously, this competition between British & Americans on who gets what first is plain ridiculous.

    Amazing! Can’t wait to get this!! Let’s just hope that there are some 5″ figures on the way too! 🙂

    The announcement part may have been a bit much, but my god, this new sonic looks pretty cool.
    I must admit, the few times we’ve seen it on screen so far, I didn’t really feel for it, but, much like the new Dalek paradigm, as a toy, I think it works. Will definitely be buying this.

    A while ago it was Anounced as a prototype, but they did release a price of £13.99 . I forgot the website name , and after a while for looking for it the site seems non existent.

    Wonderful! So happy it has both green and blue modes, as the replica does, that we’ve yet to see on-screen. Was unsure if they would include the green mode, but glad they have done so.

      like i said, Sonics are Character biggest selling item, and brand new one after 6 years is a big deal for them and their retailers

      Well lets hope its not a Toys “R” Us exclusive this time round,
