Rare Ninth Doctor Holographic Prototype Now On eBay!

It’s not often a genuine rarity turns up on eBay, but this Character Options prototype figure of the Ninth Doctor hologram from The Parting of the Ways back in 2005 is certainly one to keep an eye on.

Available for an immense Buy it Now price of £299.99, this rare Ninth Doctor figure was previously featured back in 2012 on a full auction. We don’t know if it’s the same item or not, but if there was more than one made, were pretty sure there can’t be too many of them.

Of that item, we wrote:

This auction is a very rare unreleased Doctor Who 5″ action figure from Character Options representing the 9th Doctor in holographic form as he appears to Rose just before his regeneration. CO developed this figure in translucent painted plastic and decided not to release it. There’s only a few test figures in existence and this is one of them . Great toy!

This item ends at Friday teatime, so don’t miss this chance to own a rare Ninth Doctor hologram figure!

    £299.99? Seriously? If someone buys it at that price it’ll just prove some people have more money than sense! £29.99 is more realistic – and even then it’s still a rip-off!

      You might not understand the collector’s market.Something like this may be worth 299.99 today, but in 5 years whoever buys this may well be able to sell it for 1,000. I spent $150 for a Sideshow Collectables doll about 3 years ago (not Doctor Who) and people thought I was nuts, but that same doll will now get me $500 if I were to decide to sell it. These are investments. Just ask anyone who spent $10,000 on a copy of Action Comics #1 30 years ago, now that it’s valued at more than a million.

    I might be shot down with this….but, I quite like the action figures. I have the 12 doctors released in 5 inch so far, plus Tardises and Daleks. But that’s the thing, I don’t feel I need the whole range to get enjoyment. They are there on my shelf in the old bedroom I keep at my parents’ house. It’s something I look forward to and enjoy seeing when I am there. It also forms my own little hideaway from my main home that I can escape into. So, these things give me far more please for their aesthetic and representational quality than I can even imagine a figure sitting in a bag would ever give me just because it’s rare.

      You’d only be shot down if you said you preferred the new tiny 3 1/2 inch figures. The 5-inch ones were on the whole excellent. Though I much prefer the 10-inch action figure I have the Tenth Doctor and I wish I’d have been able to find a Rose Tyler in that format.
