      Mine was the same….They give a refund and the option to either keep the item or to send it back for any posting costs to be refunded..

      So they don’t actually have the touch control sonic screwdriver?

      I got stung by this but I believe the retailer when they said it was an accident and they were very contrite and helpful in the end.

      It isn’t even in stock on the CO website.

    • David1996

      September 8th, 2014 - 8:26pm

      I have to agree, it is a genuine mistake and the seller was very nice about it…not many sellers would offer a refund and a free sonic like that.

      However until it’s either in stock in the Entertainer and on the CO site, I think I’ll wait for this

      Not a lot, it’s now touch activated (no more button on the end) and the end is now a ‘power core’. It’s not much change but still a nice addition.

    The Removable Power Core has featured in Series 8!

    In “Into The Dalek”, The Doctor gives the ‘spare’ core to Ross to swallow, so he can track it’s signature and follow the anti-bodies

    So there you go, it IS canon

    You know I could be wrong, but I’m sure that in Deep Breath when the Sonic is rolling round on the floor that there was a hinge on the bottom, so maybe the button on the end of the original toy was accurate after all but just never shown onscreen.

      Actually, in the episode “The Time of Angels” the 11th doctor uses the button on the bottom of the screwdriver to “sonic” river. Just a little tidbit of info for you 🙂

    • NCC1701D

      August 27th, 2014 - 9:26pm

      So it would seem the button on the bottom wasn’t so much of a ‘gimmick’ after all.

    • Russell Sellers

      August 27th, 2014 - 9:58pm

      The weak hinge was annoying, but that is down to poor materials.

    • Minembo

      August 29th, 2014 - 3:00am

      Well the reason for that is because on the show prop it had a tiny magnet to hold it but the character options one didn’t…

      Likely not, CO seem to do lots of non canon stuff with their sonics. Always possible though….

  • planetofthewhovians

    August 27th, 2014 - 12:54pm

    I love the idea of the bottom core but I do have worries weather or not it’s going to be securely on as the 11th dr sonic had that hinge that would never close ,but in my eyes this is a great improvement especially the touch sensitive feature .

      we don’t relay know

      as it has never actually been on the series

      I imagine it might be where the sonic gets its power from or something like that.

      it might be included in series 8

    Can anyone tell me, does Amazon have these available now, by which I mean not for pre-order but for sale now, as the Amazon page suggests, or have you got to wait, because both Forbidden Planet and Forbidden Planet International don’t get them for a few weeks yet. Oh and it is the touch Sonic as the page suggests and not actually the single button one.

    Great way to start of the merchindise as well as the 5inch Capaldi regeneration and the midget release – and the other 3.75inch line. Will one hundred per cent be buying this. Glad to see they stuck with 11’s I was angry at first but seeing this sonic looks amamzing – really like the prop. Take it Votesaxon will be happy on YouTube. His Modifications were great though finall they listen! Lol. :Shock: 😎

    It’s not really the 12th Doctor’s sonic. It’s the same design as the 11th’s. Unless there’s a minor difference I’ve not noticed yet…

      It’ll be nice to finally have an 11th Doctor sonic screwdriver toy that is closer to working in the same way as the prop does. 🙂
