Some clearance scores from the Ilford, London TRU!

Image

The "Doctor Who" Foretold (mummies) were only £2.94 each (approx $3.85 US).

Image

I also picked up a package of "Jelly Babies", the treat of choice for a certain renegade Timelord through several of his incarnations.


Image

I picked up these cool "Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2" cup topper figurines at the movie theatre tonight.

They are roughly 1/18 scale and excellently sculpted. They lack articulation but are posed dynamically enough that it does not matter. I still have to trim off the small posts on the bottoms of the figurines but I do not have a blade handy here. I will trim them when I get home.

They are pictures here with a 3.75" Foretold figure for scale.

Just the Metro, as always, but after my post yesterday, I got Issues 98 and 99 of the Figurine Collection ('Attack of the Cybermen' Cyber Controller and 'The Dalek Invasion of Earth' Black Dalek), plus another binder for all of my magazines.

Take a guess. (1 point if you guessed the Metro! *Points do not equate to prizes)

My wife and I got these awesome pics done at the "Doctor Who Experience" in Cardiff, Wales yesterday!

We were shot against a green screen and the backgrounds were added in afterwards. I think I did a pretty good job of putting my hands in positions that matched the consoles.

There were a lot of different props we could use and I chose the Fourth Doctor's iconic scarf and sonic screwdriver while Liz got River Song's sonic screwdriver.

These pictures are my favorite souvenirs from this trip!

I just wish I was thinner because I had a scarf like Tom Baker had during his time in the role and a belly like Colin Baker currently has LOL



I got a souvenir bag of exclusive "Experience" goodies:

This is the contents of my commemorative souvenir bag:

Companion TARDIS Key:

Our original tickets to the "Experience":

I also bought this at the souvenir shop:

This 10th Doctor TARDIS Control Room Playset was made for the 5.5" figures but is way underscaled making it almost perfect for the 3.75" line!

Now I just have to figure out how to get it home LOL

Picked up these knock-off Papo dinosaurs for £1 each at Poundland Stores!

Image

They are much larger than the originals and have almost no loss of mold detail. The paint, however, leaves a lot to be desired. I can fix that though.

I picked up these awesome toys at Argos this morning!

Image

The "Doctor Who" "Into The Dalek" Time Zone playset was never imported into the US by any of the usual outlets for "Doctor Who" merchandise so I thought I would never get one. I got it on super clearance for £6.99 (approx $9.19 US) down from the original release price of £49.99!

I really only wanted the black/red/silver Dalek Hoverbout so at the price I got it for, all of the figures and the cardboard backdrop are gravy.

Image

I also picked up the "Thunderbirds Are Go" villain "The Mechanic". This Series 2 figure, along with the repaints of the Series 1 Thunderbirds Team never made it to the US due to the poor sales of Series 1. I have no real interest in "Thunderbirds Are Go", but the figure was on sale for £4.99 (approx $5.09 US) and with a repaint will make for an excellent seedy spaceport mechanic.
