PostSubject: My collection.   Sun Nov 11, 2012 7:43 pm

I know we have a "show off your figure collection" page but I wanted my own page Smile So here is my collection, I'll update it every once in awhile to keep everyone up to-date.

I finally completed the cabinets for my Who Collection, got them set it in the living room and after about 3 hours got 90% of my collection set up.

My collection started when I was 5 years old and my father got me a couple Dapol Figures back in 1989 cyclops

I have a complete carded classic figure collection, sadly you cannot see all the single and twin pack figures as I had to layer them in rows on the top two shelves... but over all I'm happy with it. Oh the joy to dust now haha... l

Ok a close up look at my "store" haha

First of all the Dapol 25th Anniversary Playset from 1988. I have the box but it wont fit on my shelving so I decided to display the set out of the box... Do not fear, I'm not I'll, I can display some items outside the cardboard prison.



This is the Dapol Classic Dalek Box Set, Production Dalek, Warrior Dalek, Perceptor Dalek and Flame-Thrower Dalek. We have in the new range of Classic figures the Warrior Dalek and Flame-Thrower dalek I hope we get the Perceptor Dalek and Production Dalek as well!



And look a Early Dalek Set displayed out of the box again with a few loose Dapol K9 figures (including the GREEN K9)

This is some of my Dapol Daleks... Most of this Dapol Collection was played with daily by me when I was growing up so although they are not the best looking they are priceless to me.

There are three rarer Daleks, the Red White and Blue (American Dalek) the Green and Silver Dalek from a Dapol playset and then the clear Transmat Dalek.



Here are my childhood toys... a selection of Dapol figures, look at the quality of them and compare with what we have now from UT/CO/FP. I don't believe we have too much to whine about now do we? haha



1960's Louis Marx Re-Issue Dapol Daleks - I think these guys are great!

In this photo is my original Dapol console, I have had it about 22 years and yes it has turned a nasty green from how it was stored. It was very well played with I can assure you of that!

By the way, my father had got me the Police Box TARDIS, 7th Dr. Mel and K.9 so naturally he did not want to spend money on the 25th anniversary set just to get a 6 year old the console. So he called Dapol, explained to them the situation and they sent him the console at cost + shipping! That is what I call customer service and appreciation!

Also a two armed Davros (Carded), the popup Dalek playset and Three Doctors DVD UK release with Bessie Corgi Car.



To end that shelf I have the Corgi tin set, a cut out of Tom Baker and my collection of character build figures. I have lost interest in this rage haha

Most on the forum comment about my desired way of displaying my figures/sets IE In the boxes/packets... I feel that the packaging adds to the overall presentation of the item however I do have some loose Classic figures. Here are the photos of my loose Classic collection. 99% of the figures I have got at bargain prices from various sources.

The 1st Doctor Collection.



2nd Doctor Collection.



3rd Doctor Collection.

Cool collection. I've got those in my cupboard somewhere. Razz

Seriously. Cool collection display though. I have half of Toys r us and more up the attic but cannot display them as I've got no room, and I'm not joking too. Any chance of loaning Texas solely for display purposes. sunny

Where do you buy most of your items from? I get mine for the local Toys r Us or on eBay but I have know to get the odd bargain or two at our local garage sale or Boot-sale in the UK which is extra nice. Cool

Living in the USA the last 9 years (originally from England) It is very hard to come across Doctor Who items in Toys R Us, retail outlets or garage sales.... so I am restricted to Ebay and the wonderful people at WhoNa for the newer stuff!

I know your pain with locating items and the cost of shipping. Yeah I do a lot of eBay shopping too plus the usual Forbidden Planet one line not to mention the odd bargain down the local boot sale or Garage sale if in the US. $80 or 51.71 not bad really. Did you buy it in the US or UK? As recently I bought the Silver Palitoy Dalek you have from the states and it cost me $124 plus customs charge of $42. Not cheap.Shocked
