What did fans on Whovians Amino think?
As I mentioned, I also saw many users talking about the new sonic toy on Whovians Amino and I asked some of them what they thought of it. Click on their names to view their Amino pages.
"I think it looks too flashy. I say this because the handle is sorta steampunk but has holes in between the things sticking out. I also don't like the emitter at the top because it's too bulky. It feels weird in you hand. But the button/slider that activates the emitter feels very satisfying to move. I like that they included another colour, but why green? They could have made it red - I’m referring to a Doctor Who comic where the Doctor mentions that his sonic has a red setting, just like River’s."
"When I saw it, I didn't see a character options toy, I saw a gorgeous prop replica! Upon first glance I thought it looked very plasticy. However in hand, my god does it look good! The best part is no visible battery compartment and no legal information. This shocked me as legal stuff is usually visible on these toys. But the detail is perfect!"
"The sculpt is great and the light features and sounds are well done but the lack of "action features" (such as the extending features of recent sonics and pull down feature on the classic ones) are what let's this otherwise good piece of merchandise down."
"I think it looked classy from the moment it flew 'the force' style into his hand, I think it looks particularly decorative but in an elegant way and the main thing is it's such a great contrast to a whole Series of Sonic Sunglasses! I think the BBC may even have had this up their sleeve as a merchandise tactic, go a season without then EVERYONE is going to want to buy the new one!"

"I would say it is a bit to long in terms of design I like the toy version cannot really fault it but I would have preferred its design to be that the emitter part springs out and held in via the clip looking things so you can decrease its length by a few cm and if you want to extend it, click s button the clips unlock and fling it is now the shape of what it looks like now, if you see what I mean."
"What a brilliant toy of a brilliant sonic. One of the best we've seen."
