About the seller:
AWESOME. The product came with no problems or complications, and it arrived two days before the estimated arrival date.
About the Screwdriver itself:
-It IS kind of lame that when the claws are extended you have to push the button at the bottom to activate the light and sounds.
-It IS kind of lame that the main button on the side doesn't quite line up sometimes, so when the claw is not deployed, and you're supposed to be able to use the primary button, about half the time it doesn't work.
-A lot of customers say that installing the batteries is overly complicated and difficult.
-Releasing the claws and the spring action is SO satisfying and makes you feel like you're gonna take on the whole Dalek empire singlehandedly.
-I didn't have any trouble at all installing the batteries. It was simple and quick.
-Sure, it's disappointing that the main button is finicky. But it requires you to adjust the top of the screwdriver or hold it in a specific way. It takes a delicate touch and I've gotten pretty good at it while my friends still can't get it. And that makes me feel even more like the Doctor. It's totally an oversight on the part of the manufacturer, but it's fitting that you have to fumble about and make the screwdriver work sometimes just like The Doctor often does with his technology.
Overall, it's an awesome toy. It's not perfect, but who cares? It's 20 bucks and you get to run around annoying your friends, pretending to be the doctor, and sonic-ing everything in sight.
All in all:
Great as a toy
Lights and Sound Effects (with a few hidden sounds)
See through center-piece, exposing the wires
Unable to press the main button while extended
Flimsy latch at the bottom
They seriously could not have chosen a flimsier plastic or construction method for this toy. It feels decidedly thin and hollow, and I'm always afraid that the slightest tap or drop will shatter it. It made me deeply uneasy putting the batteries in as it felt like the whole thing was going to crack and fall apart in my hands. Every time I deploy the prongs I flinch a little in fear that the top half is just going to fly across the room.
The sound effects and light are nice, but the fact that only the button on the base of the screwdriver works while the prongs are deployed really ruins it. Don't plan on running around a party deploying the prongs and sonicing everything; it can't be done without two hands. It's basically essential to an 11th doctor costume, but it is deeply disappointing and I wouldn't expect it to remain functioning for more than a few hours of playtime. I definitely do not recommend this for children.
