This Doctor Who Figurines Collector Has Given Up!

We’ve given Eaglemoss a bit of a poor ride of late over the Doctor Who Figurine Collection, but even we’re surprised to see a lot on eBay of the complete collection to date, including magazines, binders, figure stands and the special pieces.

Ending tonight, the auction has a starting price of £250!, which is roughly the amount the pieces were purchased at individually. As the listing states:

Eaglemoss complete Dr Who figurine collection + Emperor Dalek & Rare Daleks + Specials

For sale is the above collection, which comes complete with all magazines, 2 binders and 2 stands. As well as the 21 figurines so far, the collection also includes the 2 rare subscriber daleks, Slitheen and Tardis specials, along with Emperor Dalek. All of the figurines are in their original boxes, and the magazines are in the binders. None of the above have ever been displayed.

This would be a great way to catch up with the collection so far, and obtain the specials without having to subscribe if need be

Set includes

11th Dr, Davros, Cyber Leader, Weeping Angel, Dalek, Sontaran, 10th Dr, Ice Warrior, Silent, Rassilon, Ood Sigma, Supreme Dalek, (new) Cyberman, Omega, Nerada, 4th Dr, Judoon, Skaro Dalek, Sycorax, Invasion Cyberman,

Plus, Emperor Dalek, 2 x Rare Daleks, Slitheen and Tardis Specials

The seller hopes to raise money for some building work with this sale, ending tonight and which you can see on eBay now!

What do you think? Should the collector have given up? Would you bid or is the quality of the Eaglemoss statues too ropey for your tastes?

    I have to say on the whole the collection is very good, I’ve only had 1 figure to complain about out of the 20+ I’ve had and the quality has improved a great deal in the last 6 issues or so and I’m looking forward to another 2 coming this week, I will certainly be keeping my subscription going.

    I don’t think he’s “giving up” if he’s doing this to raise money for something. Given the choice between fixing a leaky roof or replacing a furnace and collecting toys, I’m afraid the roof/furnace/new fence/whatever wins every time.

    Unfortunately the listing ended without any bids. If I were him I’d list them individually as complete collections rarely go for as much as the seller would like as prospective buyers might just want a few items than the whole lot.

    Living in the Netherlands, it turned out to be impossible to subscribe (although I wanted to do so), and I often enough make trips to e-bay for certain figurines. The good thing about not being able to subscribe is that you don’t have to take the figurines you don’t really like, but of course the downside is that some figurines are terribly hard to get hold of and rather pricey. Having said all that, I agree with Francis it might be a better idea to list them individually. In that case, the total income generated might even be more than the listed 250 pounds – which in itself is quite a lot to pay in one go even if it is a reasonable sum for the whole collection.
