    New figures ordered! WOOT! Views: 2579
     Saturday, June 10 2006 @ 02:36 PM EDT
    One week ago my wife asked me what this certain charge was on our account. It added up.

    So I told her it was probably my Doctor Who order.

    Today, Saturday, June 10, 2006, a package arrived at my door containing A Phone Flasher, Moxx of Balhoun, Rose and K9, and Cassandra!

    YAY!

    They're finally here!

    Order went in mid-March.

    Sean.

    You must have quite the collection now Sean. If I started order the figures I would probably catch it form the wife. I spend enough on DVD's without adding more to my Doctor expenses. Just got the Beginning set now I just have to find the time (pun intended) to sit down and watch it. I got through the first part of Unearthly child but that is all I ahve seen so far.

    Cheers,
    Russel

    My collection is too large to count. I've been collecting toys for years.

    I have oh, about 250 or so GI Joes (the 12" ones) alone, which doesn't get into the hundreds of Star Trek and Star Wars toys, the die-cast Dinky and Corgi vehicles from the 1960s and 1970s...

    It's far too large to document.

    These are just a few added to it. It was my birthday gift to myself. I ordered near my birthday, and it's been 2.5 months just about...

    Sean.

    My biggest problem with collecting is space... I just don't have the room for anything more... I had started collecting science fiction memorabilia as a kid... and continued as a big kid (i.e. "adult")... but in recent years, I just had to cut down. There's no room and then there's the issue of money as well (or lack of it). So as Ken would say, just try to be more 'selective' in what you buy... But after the flood I had last fall, which destroyed so much (which can not be easily replaced)... I am even more weary about buying collectables. That has not completely stopped me. I did buy two of the remote control Daleks earlier this spring. TARDIS money bank, phone flasher, sonic screwdriver, etc... I would still like to get more... but I try to space it out due to concerns over space and of course money as well... but lack of space has really come a big problem now. So much of my collectables are packed away even though I would like to proudly display them simply due to lack of space. Sometimes I rotate things out and put others away to change things around.

    I need a flat that is bigger on the inside than the out... Sigh.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Word, Louis.

    I can't display much in my apartment. Most of my toys are in an apartment of their own. I had to rent a storage room for them.

    But a lot of them are on display at my office, (and even there some of them are packed into Rubbermaid tubs because my new space is smaller than my old space - can't fit as many shelves around me.)

    Sean.

    Today my newest Who toy came! This is the 5" R/C Dalek.

    I had heard some reviews of it that was a bit jittery in its movement, but I find it's fine. I feared that with it being so much taller than the K9 RC figure that it would be more unstable on its two powered-wheels.

    But nope. He's pretty solid and moves nicely.

    I love the fact that he speaks from the figure, not from the hand-set (like K9, which I find a bit of a cop-out.)

    Like K9, I WISH he lit up, but he doesn't. Still, he's very very nice!

    Thanks, WhoNA!

    I also bought an issue of the Doctor Who Adventures magazine, which came with a TARDIS plastic-covered notebook. This was for my daughter, and she's over the moon with it. I think I'll buy those regularly.

    Sean.

    I had gotten the first few issues of DWA from The Comic Guru in Cardiff. They still have issue 4, which I haven't seen at WhoNA...

    Somewhere in my basement are a couple of Dr. Who craft books which included how to make Tegan's boobtube, Adric's yellow dodgeball tunic, Nyssa's sweater a cybermat and a stuffed K9. There were other things too, like knitting patterns. Unfortunately I can't seem to find the box those books are hiding in. The only thing I ever made from them was the K9 and a faux-celery stalk pin that I wore to school but nobody knew what it was all about. (I just now had a flash-back to telling a female teacher with short curly dark brown hair that she looked like the Doctor but now I'm getting off-threadSmile)) Does anybody remember these craft books??

    If Worzel Gummidge and the Third Doctor had a fist fight - who would win?

    I just ordered the latest Doctor Who figures available for Whona, which are the 5 inch version of the new cybermen, Chip and Cassandra, and the 12 inch version of the 10th Doctor in a cloth costume.

    With the usual time for shipping that has occured before I should be getting my figures by the end of the week or the early part of next week at the latest.

    I can't wait for the TARDIS playset and Cyber Helmet changer to come out soon. Their next on my most wanted list.

    My girlfriend bought me a copy off ebay a few weeks ago. Couldn't stop laughing! I particularly liked the background images (TARDIS roundels = paper plates) genius!

    Yeah, I got my 12 inch Tenth Doctor today along with a 5 inch Cyberman and Chip and Cassandra mk. II. Removeable plimsoles but no socks. What's up with that? Very good leg articulation, though.
