classicsonic1 The Description…

The Third Doctor spent much of this incarnation exiled on earth .

Sophisticated and elegant this Doctor was more of a pure scientist than his predecessors, surrounded by gadgets and vehicles.

But whether aiding UNIT against invasion or travelling to distant planets his kindness and belief in peace was rarely stronger.

The Sonic Screwdriver is a versatile tool and defensive device first used by the Doctor in his second incarnation for opening up hatches, panels and controls.

      I think they will make them all eventually if this one sold well which i think it has, The Dalek guard should come to Australia and yes they are our Daleks on the shelf, i haven’t tried the game.

    Intersting how things like this get announced, about may-time last year, and there only just out now! 😆
    Which reminds me of a certain enfuriating matter; when the FRIG is the Screwdriver by WowStuff being (at Long-Last) actually released into the world of business, so it can actually BE given to me! I was intending to have it for the Live Show, on NOV 7th, way more awesome thatn any kids Sonic, which they buy in stacks and stacks and stacks offa adsa, the places are actually over-flowing with the thing, it needs to stop being made!

    OMG i can’t believe they are going to release a toy of the third Doctor. I’ve not seen any third doctor episodes before but they look really good. I still like the Eleventh Doctor’s sonic the best, but this one looks brillient.[img]Smile[/img]

    After This I reckon there will be a fourth and fifth, maybe an eighth doctor sonic screwdriver, since are roughly the same sculpt. A Second Doctor one, although just a penlight will also be cool. I would also love a Sonic Lance
