Gotta Have It! Doctor Who Eleventh Doctor Sonic Screwdriver

Forget the lightsabers, toss out the magic wands, get rid of the bow and arrows, repulsor rays, and vibranium shields. You don’t need any infinity gems to guard the galaxy. All you need is the Eleventh Doctor’s 10-inch Sonic Screwdriver!

This Doctor Who prop is the most fun thing I have played with in a long time. Fans of the long-running show will know that the Doctor can do just about anything with his trusty “sonic.” With each iteration of the Doctor, a new sonic screwdriver tends to appear to get the Doctor out of just about every jam imaginable. The sonic screwdriver is able to get through every lock or handcuff that holds the Doctor, and it can also perform medical scans, search for alien lifeforms, or control devices remotely. Long before Apple came out with the ultimate hand-held device, the Doctor was rocking this handy thing which has an app for just about everything.

However, this toy can’t do all of those things, unless operated by imagination. What this sonic screwdriver can do, though, is light up and buzz with various sonic noises so you can easily pretend you are busting out of a Cyberman prison, or figure out which of your friends are really shape-shifting Zygons. There are two buttons, one on the side, and one on the bottom tip under a flip-cap, which allow you the dexterity of full use.

But the coolest feature of this sonic screwdriver is that it has a spring-loaded extender so you can scan, then pop it open with an awesome “click.” Imagine you’re at a party, and you see someone you want to make your “companion.” Just slide up next to him or her, use this sonic screwdriver to give her a quick scan, and flip the switch, studying it for a few seconds. Then say something dashing like, “Just as I expected, you are the hottest life form in this quadrant of the universe. Would you like to join me in my blue box?” Try it and see what happens! (ComicAttack.net is not responsible for any injuries you might incur upon using the sonic screwdriver to pick up a date.)

If you are a fan of the show, you simply must pick up this awesome replica. I carry mine in my truck, and when I’m stuck in traffic or when someone cuts me off, I pick it up and pretend I’m dismantling the axle of the car in front of me. Great adventures await!
