Now maybe it's just me but I think this would have been amazing! Especially if it really was "interactive with all sonic screwdrivers" but even if it wasn't it would have been great to have with it's own functions!

I've heard various unconfirmed stories about high production costs, unpopular with testers etc as to why we didn't get it but does anyone have any light on a definitive reason why?

Also I wonder what happened to this one? Is it still in a vault somewhere or do you think it was scrapped?


Interesting, I think this could have been good if released.

It would have been great, I am planning to make a custom one in future, although Doctor What is currently doing on too! Be sure to check out the custom section for his thread on it!

Yeah the personal TARDIS would have been fantastic. <3
There was also that 12th Doctor's TARDIS model that would have been a phone-flasher and wifi thingy? That looked neat.

There was a phone flasher was an actual product that was released during the Tenth Doctor's time, still available to buy and not that expensive!

However I think what you're referring to was the TARDIS WiFi Space Telegram & Nightlight which was basically a glorified answer machine

However as we never got many details about it, exactly how it worked is a bit of a mystery. However it appears to just have been a 5" TARDIS (atleast on display) but what makes it interesting is the lack of white frames on the windows.

Probably just a production oversight on the prototype but still an interesting mix none the less!

I have two 12" Dalek prototypes in my collection. First is the well-known Stars & Stripes Dalek, pictures of which were circulated at the same time as the 50th anniversary Union Jack Dalek, but for some reason only three (I think) were ever made:

Second, and much more interesting, is this Product Enterprise Dalek. Essentially it's just a regular silver Dalek, but the arm has been replaced with a special socket into which you can put one of three different arms - a mutant scoop with mutant, a pyroflame and a "percepter" TARDIS detector. It was never released as they lost the BBC licence to Character Options just after this draft version was made to test the tooling in China.

Maybe some of you will know about this, but I stumbled across it earlier! I've never seen this before but it appeared on the Doctor Who merchandise site a while back so it would seem to be genuine!

Scale seems to be unknown, hence why I played it here rather than in the other sections! But any info anyone could shed on this would be interesting to know!
