    FOB Watch - coming soon Views: 10230
     Friday, January 11 2008 @ 03:59 AM EST

    Expect eBay to be awash with CHARACTER OPTIONS latest "toy".

    The Doctor's Fob Watch is a highly detailed (and fully functional - as a watch, of course) replica of the fob watch used by both the Doctor and the Master. It features speech, lights and sound effects.

    RRP: £14.99. Suitable for five year olds plus and adults of-a-certain-age.

    sadly it looks plastic...

    Looks awesome, well £15 for a detailed toy of a prop the plastic option was probably best.

    It might be oversized as well to accommodate the voice/sound effects etc.

    No matter what I'm liking it!

    I'd probably rather someone pushed the boat out and did a proper reproduction watch, as opposed to a plastic job.

    I'm not a massive fan of the screwdrivers and reproduction style items (Judoon Scanners etc) that Character do, but that's just me. They're clearly very popular with everyone else.

    I do remember Smitty was actually asking for one of these months ago.

    Yes I did!

    It looks pretty darn close to what I thought it would be if it was made into a rolepaying toy/accessory. Oh I've seen a few more pics and it is not oversized.

    I then recalled that the fob watch from HN/FOB/U was a little big as well.

    Is this plastic? If so, that is a shame. Didn't there used to be another Doctor Who FOB watch available some years ago which was pewter or something. I think I have it (though it may have broke on me). Memory is a little hazy on it now, perhaps it had the seal of Rassilon and the DW logo (similar to the 1996 video movie)...

    This is nice, but I would prefer a proper watch, not a toy.

    The watches have started turning up in Argos folks (if anyone is planning on getting one).

    I was told there were a few of these in the dealers room at Gallifrey 2008. They were the first to sell out as well. But unfortunately, I was also told they are made out of plastic. Angry Oh well... It's just a toy.

    Let me know when some company makes a real FOB watch replica.

    I saw this at the Toy Fair last week. I met Robyn and Matt from Underground, and they were great. Robyn's British, which surprised me a bit. Nice lady.

    I took this photo of the fob watch toy. It's basically full-sized, and looked good. I didn't ask her to take it out of the case, but I should have. I got this photo, not of the interior, though.

    And the better news still is that this:

    is a real fob watch! This will also be available. It's somewhat smaller than the real deal. If the original is 8cm across, this must have been about half-scale at 4-5cm across.

    Oh... and for those who wish to be envious:

    That's a real BBC Dalek that got shipped over for the Toy Fair show, and I was told it would be at Forbidden Planet in New York for a while as well, on display, before it returns to England.


    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    The Dalek has been at the NYC Forbidden Planet for a few weeks now... I have seen it a couple of times.

    Cool. Do you know when this is going to be available? I wish it was full scale and I wish the watch face plate matched the original one better, but if it is real (i.e. not a plastic toy), I will take it (if it is priced reasonably).
