PostSubject: Started collecting the Key to Time, decided to have fun...   Fri Jun 13, 2014 12:14 pm

A couple of months ago I decided to begin purchasing a new prop, The Key to Time from the Fourth Doctor’s era which comprised the whole of Season 16. However, due to the cost of this prop it made more sense to collect it over time rather than all at once. This got me thinking, I found the idea of posting a picture of each new segment, as I received one, a tad boring because after the third one at least, it would just be another picture of a crystal shard and would get rather old to anyone keeping up with my collection. So, I had a plan, since I was essentially embarking on my own adventure for the Key to Time, why not have fun with it and actually share the adventure with all of you?

So here it is. In this album (a public album so you don't need to like the page or anything), you can see Romana III and the Tenth Doctor as they continue their quest for “The Key to Time…Again”! Basically, each time I collect a new segment I'll post a adventure! At least until all six segments have been found…

Thanks guys!

Right now I have two segments and one more ordered, I'm doubtful I'll have them all for L.I. Who do you might just see us running around for sure Wink We had a few ideas for future "episodes" already which I can't wait to make!

So I did a test on another forum and the files are readable is posted here so I decided to post the comic straight to the forums from now on. For those that missed it, here is "The Key to Time...Again" Episode 1: The Reebok Operation.

A couple of months ago I decided to begin purchasing a new prop, The Key to Time. However, due to the cost of this prop it made more sense to collect it over time rather than all at once. This got me thinking and I realized that I found the idea of posting a picture of each new segment, as I received one, a tad boring because after the third one at least, it would just be another picture of a crystal shard and would get rather old to anyone keeping up with my collection. So, I had a plan, since I was essentially embarking on my own adventure for the Key to Time, why not have fun with it and actually share the adventure with all of you?

So here it is. In these strips we join Romana III and the Tenth Doctor as they continue their quest for “The Key to Time…Again”! Basically, each time I collect a new segment I plan to continue the adventure! At least until all six segments have been found…

We start with Episode 1: The Reebok Operation:


















Dun DuhDum Dun DuhDum Dun DuhDum DUN DUHDUM
Dun DuhDum Dun DuhDum Dun DuhDum DUN DUHDUM
Dun DuhDum Dun DuhDum Dun DuhDum DUN OoooWeeeOooo
WeeeOooo Ooooo Dooo Weee Ooooo Doo Dee Doo,
De Dooo, Doooooo Deee Dooooooo.......


And one of the first segment and the tracer together


The key itself is a resin cast replica based off of the original (which was also resin cast of course) and was made by Paul Pape. The Tracer was replicated by The Scones of Blood using original parts however I replaced the tip using a 3D printed part made by 13DoctorWho on Shapeways to specifically fit my tracer.

Thank you! My third segment is being made as we speak so I'll have that episode in the next month or two hopefully. The last three might need to wait a bit since Robatto released his 11/12 sonic :/ But I'm glad you're enjoying them!

Thanks guys! And actually her hair is the result of episode one being shot on my iPhone in indoor lighting and episode two being shot on my Canon SLR camera in outdoor lighting. I noticed vast difference in color tones between the two. But since episode 1 was a stealth shoot I felt the iPhone was wise Wink

Glad to hear it guys! And sorry for the delay. I've had a busy con schedule lately and my girlfriend's schedule and mine haven't allowed for this. Soon enough I'll have two new segments, rather than just the one. if I am lucky I'll put up two episodes relatively soon! Thanks for the interest Smile

Now, someone has to make replicas of all the original segments, (what they were before being transformed) although where you would put Calufrax, I have NO idea. scratch

Although, I would not mind one bit having Princess Astra in my collection! I love you drunken

Yeah, I gotta draw the line somewhere. Replicas of all of the originals just would take up too much space.
