Hi. Thought to update with some thoughts and experiences of Doctor WHO. My introduction to Doctor WHO takes me back to the Black & White TV Episodes of the 2nd Doctor, the 3rd Doctor and 4th Doctor....in the early 1970's. I did not watch each and every Episode then - just catching snippets in between Study - but I liked it all and became very fond of the Series.
I later rekindled interest with watching the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) -the First Series and proceeded to collect a whole host of 6" Action Figures. The 6inch figure collection consisted of all eleven Doctor, as many 'Companions' I could locate -including Sarah Jane....there were also Daleks, Sontarians, and Jadoon Aliens....also I collected about six varieties of TARDIS.
Doctor WHO toys again become of interest when I set out to collect 3.75" Action Figures last year (2016). My collection of 3.75" Action Figures included a lighted Tardis, a stand in Doctor and Companion, Daleks, some Aliens (from the 'Twilight Zone') and a number of Civilian 'Extras'. I built some 'Props' such as buildings and space ship interiors as well as the interior of the Tardis. My aim with the 3.75" Collection was to make up a single 'Photo- Story' - which I did and placed the story onto my Blog.
Once I had achieved my aim - I sold off all items.....I wasn't really that happy having a stand-in Doctor....it all wasn't Doctor WHO.
Early last month (May 2017) I placed an order with the UK for a batch of Harlequin 25mm Doctor WHO figures. Well after waiting over five weeks without any delivery of the items - I became quite besides myself with a feeling of utter frustration and disillusion. I cancelled the order and did request and receive a full REFUND.
Just four days ago - I was indeed pondering what to do to obtain my Doctor WHO fix!
I recall several years ago that our Local Hobby Co had a small variety of Doctor WHO figures on their shelves....'Mini- Figurines' OR 'Micro Figurines'....I began to check if these types of figures were still available - after what seems something like six years ago- I was concerned about obtaining them....and YES - they are still available on the Internet - though not at the Local Toy and Hobby Shops.
However- I have found that they are not obtained cheaply and come at inflated prices.
These past few days I have diligently placed several separate orders - mainly using e-Bay....the figures should all be arriving over the next fortnight or so.
At this stage I am very pleased to be collecting the Doctor WHO Macro-Figures....certainly I feel a real buzz to be collecting again- it is the fun thing to do on a limited budget - and the thrill of the chase and nailing down that elusive or rare figure - IS a lot of fun!
I am hoping to do something with the Doctor WHO Macro-Figures....lots of ideas so far and I am very much looking forward to receiving my little miniature purchases.
Please stay tuned for further developments.
