There are three sets of parts that come with this set. One is identical to the 11th Doctor's screwdriver, though it obviously doesn't extend. The second is a kind of steampunk version of the 11th, and the third is kind of a cross between the 4th Doctor's and the 9th/10th Doctor's. Individual parts (emitter head, grip, pommel, and "controls") can be mixed and matched with each other, though obviously certain combinations will look better.
Though the parts feel very plasticky, they are all very well detailed; the 11th pieces are just as detailed as the full-functioning toy. Unfortunately, on all of the combinations, the speaker grill is located below and opposite the button, which means that holding the screwdriver in the natural position will cover up the speaker with the fingers; this is easily avoided by holding it accordingly.
Also, on mine (I suspect it's a simple manufacturing defect), the clear rod in one of the heads sticks out too far, i.e. is too tall, which means it doesn't fit on perfectly when the center piece is inside; this can be easily fixed with a file. Second, the steampunk button section had both the bottom inner ring and the top outer ring come unglued, however small amounts of super glue have fixed this.
Finally, there are indeed hidden sounds on this screwdriver, similar to early versions of the 11th; however, I've found no problems with the sound chip shorting out, and judging by the sheer number of hidden sounds (8!) it seems they're going to stay.
Overall, if you're looking for an 11th screwdriver, just get the standalone toy. If you want an unusual screwdriver, are a kid, or are into modification (the central module, with speaker, batteries, button and LED is both self-contained and openable, ideal if you want to put it somewhere), this is certainly worth buying. The large number of both shapes and sounds will keep you busy for a while.
First things first: you aren't just getting one screwdriver. Due to the design of the pieces, you can assemble all the extra bits that aren't attached to the core (more on that in a moment) into two separate screwdrivers! This is wonderful for people looking for displays, as you can now get three screwdrivers for the price of one and a half.
Now, a review of the pieces.
The first 'official' screwdriver (ie how the box organizes it) is the 11th Doctor's screwdriver. The pieces that make up this are the claw-head with green emitter light, a smooth control piece with a hidden button to activate it, the dual black/white handle, and the copper tip. This is probably the best of the 'official' screwdrivers, as it looks very nice and is pleasing to the eye. Others have stated that the claws do not open but that is somewhat to be expected with this price.
The second 'official' screwdriver is the steampunk screwdriver. It has a clear orb emitter with a green light, a copper control piece with dials and a morse-code style button for activating the effects, a solid white handle, and cap with copper rings. This is why I got this set, as I wanted to create my own personal screwdriver and I love the top design. Unlike the 11th's there are other clear bits in the top of the screwdriver to really make it light up and achieve a wonderful effect. Sadly, the handle is the worst in the set. From what I read this is suppose to be a steampunk version of the 11th's screwdriver but having a huge, blocky white handle just makes it look horribly awkward. There are ways to fix it, of course (more on that in a moment) but it is a shame that the handle for this one wasn't thought out better. Still, I know others who love the big white handle, feeling it feels the older designs of the screwdrivers. To each his own. Thankfully there is another screwdriver in this set that we can pillage for parts.
The final screwdriver is what I lovingly call the 'sonic spanner'. from what I have read it is a mix of the 4th doctor's and the 10th Doctor's screwdrivers. For fans of the classic 'blue light' sonic, this one is designed to give you just that. Yes, this means that it doesn't mesh well with the other two sonics and their green lights, but maybe you are eccentric and like miss-mash colors. The emitter is the weakest, in my opinion, of the three sets. From the looks of it, this head is suppose to look like it can rotate and, if it did that, would be very cool, as it would allow the Doctor to aim it around corners. Sadly, it does not turn and ends up looking like the eye-light someone at Pearle Vision would use... or like a socket spanner. The control panel is very nice, with a ton of cutaway windows to let blue light glow when the sonic is turned on. The handle is absolutely lovely, as it is silver with a textured black grip. The bottom cap is a wonderful textured orb that is crying out for you to apply paint detailing. While this screwdriver is rather nice (other than the odd emitter head), I found it to be a touch... plain. All silver with a few blue paint apps and a black handle mean that when its not turned it just looks like a silver rod (or Obi Wan Kenobi's light saber)
Since the spanner is my least favorite of these screwdrivers, I used its handle on the steampunk to create the basic frame for MY screwdriver. The spanner gets the chunky white.
Now, you've heard me blather on about the pieces... onto the secrets!
First and foremost, assembly is key when you are putting together these screwdrivers. If you do it wrong, you end up with a piece that falls apart, doesn't light up, and sounds horrible. These screwdrivers are designed to lock in a certain way and you have to do this correctly, otherwise the pieces won't fit properly.
When putting in the core, make sure you are lining up the speaker (which is on the opposite side of the core from the activation button) and the holes in the handle. This helps get the sound louder and, in a moment, make it easier with further assembly. The core should press all the way down into the handle. There might be a moment where it feels like it doesn't want to go farther and is flush with the handle; KEEP GOING. That will make it sink in properly.
Next, attach the handle, paying attention to how the button on the control has to hit the core's button. It seems obvious but I know of others who missed this step and thought their sonic was broke because they had it twisted wrong.
Now, here comes the key thing and the first secret: the emitter is designed to LOCK IN. When you first attach it, you will get to a point where it feels locked in... it might not be. There is a tiny tab in the screwlines of the emitters and it can get caught just before it locks it. This makes it feel like its locked in but will cause the heads to pop off it they are tapped. While it is scary, slowly but firmly twist a bit more to get the head to lock in fully. You will be able to tell it is locked it by clues the designers built into each head:
-On the 11th's, the claws should line up with the sculpted 'bolts' on the control piece.
-On the steampunk, the silver bands around the globe should be running straight with all the 'dials' on the control piece
-On the spanner, the head should be pointing the same direction as the button... or the opposite way. Never to the side.
Once you lock in the heads, they will not pop out. The same is also true with all the other pieces: tighten them correctly and they lock into place.
The second secret is the sound effects. As others have mentioned, there are hidden soundclips that can be activated by rapidly pressing the button 3 or more times then holding. You'll know it is working because no sound will come out as you are pressing. These sounds range from sci-fi alarm sounds to a 'power down' style effect. These are great if you are cosplaying and want to claim that the sonic senses something wrong.
The final secret is that while most of the pieces are designed to only fit one way (ie you can't connect to handles to make a super-long sonic), the head pieces and the cap pieces are inter-changeable. Thus, you can take the claw head and make it the bottom of another sonic to give you a double-edge sonic. It won't light up but this can add a TON more possible connections.
In summary, this is a wonderful set for the price you are paying. Yes, a few pieces look odd but I am sure the pieces I love you will hate. Some of you might WANT a sonic spanner with a solid white grip... or the 11th's screwdriver but with a blue control piece so it glow different colors. Others (like me) are going to get some paints and detail theirs to make them look completely different. It is a wonderful set for people looking for interesting sonics to fiddle around with.
The pieces are okay, but I've seen specific sonic screwdrivers (Tom Baker's, David Tennant's, Matt Smith's) that were modeled with much greater accuracy and quality. The pieces "twist" together, but some don't fit together very tightly, no matter what I've tried. They remain together, but there is some wobbling. NOTE: one of the options in the box looks like Matt Smith's screwdriver, but please know that the "probes" at the end DO NOT OPEN. The dedicated replica has probes that pop open like the one in the show, so this is a minor let-down.
You get one electronic "light-and-sound" unit, that will fit into any of the screwdriver configurations. Each screwdriver has a button built into it so you can operate the lights and sounds. It's worked well in every configuration I've tried. If you just press the button once, it switches between a high-speed sonic whistle, and a low-speed one. But if you press the button quickly 2-8 times, and then press and hold, you get a different sound.
Even with its shortcomings, I find this a pretty fun prop for costuming/cosplay. But there are better replicas out there.
1) He seen it before I had a chance to wrap it. (sneaky devil)
2) It wasn't as great as it could have been.
The screw drivers are made of a cheap plastic and don't really fit well into each other. There is a center rod that has a button with sound and lights up - The button is very hard to line up with which ever outer casing you decide to use with it leaving you to have to constantly take apart and readjust. The center connector easily slid off one of the pieces and when the pieces are all together, they don't have a secure fit so some of them just wobble off.
I would have given this only 2 stars and returned it but he didn't want me to send it back; he said he liked it all the same. Glad to have a appreciative son.
