elo,

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good quality price guide for doctor who merchandise? Online would be most handy. Im only really looking for 60s to 80s prices as im thinking about shifting another bunch of my who gubbins. They just take up too much space........................

David J Howe is the guy to go too. He does an annual price guide and his forum - Howe's Transcendental Toybox is very good and has a lot of collectors on board. (Think the price guide is the same or similar name)

Although you should have seen the reaction on there when I tried to flog a hardback War Games (Ex Lib) for a hundred or so.

Have been collecting constantly for the past year or so myself however and I know the recent values of the books and audios practically off by heart so I can always give you a quick quote if you want, although I would say that the general start prices on Ebay have depressed since the recession and are selling for less with fewer bids, and also prices fluctuate wildly within a short space of time. For instance, I picked up Masters of Luxor for under a fiver, but have heard that it has gone for up to £50 in times past.

Thanks for the info. I will head over there and have a look for info.
I hadnt considered the recession as a factor. Perhaps this is a good excuse to hang on to my doctor who stuff.

One item ive wondered about is this peter davison era plastic frame tardis thing that comes in a big box with kids dressed as the characters. Ive always wondered if a) its very rare coz of the poor materials its made of or b) not worth a lot coz its kinda bollocks really.

how much did you get for your war games out of interest? I sold a copy of the silurians, or cave monsters as I recall they called it for some reason, and I got a pretty good price on that.

It was about £60 I think. Thereabouts anyway. I probably wasnt ever going to read it again (ive still got a paperback anyway) and figured it would probably benefit someone more serious about collecting than me. I think im going to hang onto most of my 60s stuff, but later stuff im going to periodically purge. It all just weighs too much and I reckon I could probably do something more useful with the spare room Laughing

Still got my Hardback War Games as I haven't been unable to unload it. Which is surprising really as it really is one of the rarest. The only other copy I know of (mint) is on Amazon for £500, so I've put mine on there for £300, but really I'd sell it for any decent price or in exchange for a fanthology. Got Tomb of the Cybermen and Loch Ness Monster in ex lib hardbacks too, but I managed to offload the rest of my hardbacks at a car boot. Bought about 20 from Ebay cheap and quadrupled my money on them or thereabouts. Just got the rare ones to go.

As for the Peter Davison Play Tardis thingy, sounds of interest to a collector only or to a parent of a young fan. You can try signing up to Gallifrey Base and advertising it on their Shada trading room.
