I heard somewhere that the classic sonic screwdriver toys don't make the right sounds, they make new series sonic sounds, if that's true you wouldn't really gain much from using the sounds from the toy.


i dont know you know, the 3rd/4th/5th might be inaccurate but i think the 8th doctors is rather accurate, it makes the sort of beeping noise that you can do with the triple click sound in the TV Movie, and then in night of the doctor it makes the 2nd sound you get on it with the sort of whurring with the regular new series sonic noise

i just checked it out!

Oh well, that's good then. I didn't really know first hand, I'd be hard pushed to tell the difference between the noises any of the real sonic screwdrivers made myself, and I've never actually seen an 8th doctor's one in hand, so I was just going from what I heard. But obviously I misunderstood that. I'm glad I was wrong, though, that's going to make things easier for yo, I'd imagine.

Found a great base for a JNT figure!

Just need to sculpt a beard and give it a new paint job.

The bowling ball could be repainted as a globe marked with all the conventions he'll be attending rather than doing his job as producer. ;)

Question for the group: Has anyone considered a base figure for making a custom Graham figure?

Probably one of the Primeval figures, like Cutter for the body.

Question for all you good people:

Has anyone seen any blueprints or production art for the "Resolution" Dalek on-line anywhere?

I was considering taking a swing at one in 3D, but for me it'll be hopeless without some schematics.

Not sure about the body but a slightly modified bracewell head could be good?

I feel like if you just do a bad job of making a regular dalek then you'd probably hit the spot pretty close. Like a childs drawing of a dalek, but 3D. But simultaneously really beautiful. The hot mess of all the daleks.

Friend: "What was the Christmas one this year"
Me: "It wasn't, it was a new year one and they did Daleks"
Friend: "Oh they did Daleks? They got a new thing?"
Me: "yeah, it looked a bit trash though"
*shows him *
Friend: "Aww, mate. That is reet shitters"
Me: "innit"
