I didn't even know that tennant combo existed. I managed to get the blue TRU s5 11 figure last year, really nice figure, somehow I find I vastly prefer him to the red one, even though I think I liked the red outfit better onscreen.

I naturally quite like the look as blue is my favourite colour lol.
I will say though, I paid an offensive amount for the jacketless 11………..I’m never speaking of the price.
I would have to kill you afterwards.

Oh wow, yeah, jacketless 11 is a rare boi. And cloaky hartnell, that can't have been a small purchase either. THey're both figures I've had to kind of accept I'm not going to get, barring a rerelease, I can't justify spending much more than £30 on any one figure, my pockets aren't deep enough for that

Actually, the 1st Doctor was relatively cheap. Only $55AUD. Two sold on eBay for like $100AUD.
The 11th Doctor figure isn’t actually that rare, there’s more of those on eBay than there are of the cloaked 1st Doctor…
Though, I canceled getting it from the person I was originally getting it from as I found it somewhere else cheaper.

Jacketless 11 is cheap as chips! It’s literally not remotely rare in the slightest.

Technically it’s “rare”. It was only released once, and as a SDCC exclusive.
Though there are still quite a few of them around, they’re not going too cheap unfortunately….
The mark-ups now just come out of nowhere, I don’t know where people get their prices from. A lot being outrageous.

I think a common problem nowadays that I see discussed often is that people perceive prices to be higher than they are. Couple that with people who are just out to make a quick buck so stick thr prices higher…
Also, if there’s three on the market, $50+ postage, $52 all in, and $12… the 12 sells. Leaving the next person to see and think “oh… okay, so this is worth about $50. Well, I’ve kept mine in really good condition and it looks better than the state of that $52, so I’ll stick it up for $55. And then all of a sudden, the prices are up.

Never seen one for less than high £20s, I guess Kaldor eats more expensive chips than I do.
