Doctor Who master toy licensee Character Options have announced a loss of 22% in their sales for the six months up to February 28th compared with the same time last year.
Obviously a lot of this is due to the economic crisis and people holding money back; when youâ€™re dealing in millions one range wonâ€™t make a particular difference, but what does this mean for Who collectors?
Personally, I think thereâ€™s nothing to be worried about – Character arenâ€™t going to fail from the looks of things and there is no sign of any big debts to worry about. Indeed, with rumours now spreading of new figures even this year perhaps they havenâ€™t done as badly as they had feared they might have done.
Of course they wouldnâ€™t say that, but I think speculation could fall on that conclusion fairly easily…
