Go Ahead And Drool Over This Artisan Replica of River Song’s Sonic Screwdriver

If you are a collector and wealthy fan of Doctor Who, you should give this artisan replica of River Song’s sonic screwdriver a second look. The sonic was made for QMx by Doctor Who prop maker Nick Robatto. He built the entire piece by hand:

  • Is made entirely by hand by Mr. Robatto himself. Most of the parts were machined by hand — none were CNC’d; it is constructed exactly like the screen-used hero prop.
  • Consists of approximately 70 components, most of them made of aluminum, brass, resin, nylon and polymethyl methacrylate.
  • Features a crackle paint similar to that used on the 10th’s Doctor’s Sonic. However, the crackle is a bit larger and the color deeper and darker to reflect the age of River Song’s Sonic.
  • Takes two weeks to assemble.
  • Contains no found objects, with the exception of screws and electronic components. All other parts are handmade.
  • Measures about 6.89 inches (175 mm) long.

It looks gorgeous, and the sonic comes in a replica of River’s diary. The edition is limited to 15 pieces. Check out the link below to sign up for the waiting list to pre-order in Q1 2013. I wouldn’t hesitate either, since the Doctor’s version sold out quickly.
