Ahhh, is that Toys R Us deal still going or is it all over rover? I picked up the Master, a Weeping Angel and Gelth Zombie grandmother for £11 all up. Also managed to get a 5" die-cast Cyberman for only £5 (down from £20). Yaay for bargains!

: I've been in the UK over Christmas and New Year too, and
: compared to two years ago, I reckon DW has lost some
: exposure in the best places in toy stores. Toys-R-Us had a
: smaller section than two years ago. Though it was near
: impossible to find a Dalek for my 2 year old daughter - it
: took alot of risearching to get one before and then after
: Christmas especially. So perhaps one explanation is that
: it is sooooo popular now, that it doesn't need the premier
: places in the toy stores to sell anymore - it sells out
: anyway.
: BTW - the deals on Series 1 - 3 toys in Toys-R-Us was
: exceptional - only a few quid per figure and the TARDIS
: play set for more than half price!

: : have seen a lot of unsold Who merchandise going a bit
: : cheaper in some of the supermarkets over here - Dalek
: : helmets for £29 (down from £39) and Dalek bubble bath
: : for £2 when it was selling for £ hundreds of the
: : Doctor Who micro machine toys all at half price. Lots of
: : goodies for the compulsive collector!
