    This looks awesome! I have one question: Is it worth the money?

      If you have to ask that question then you are not worthy.

    Well, I finally got one of these (we only just got them in Australia). I nearly fell over when I saw the variant one in store, so of course that’s the one I got! 🙂

    I have to say… I REALLY love this. Yes, it’s a tad expensive ($39 here), but I’m getting a lot of fun out of this (it’s particularly great for slightly older DW fans I think).

      I didn’t know they had them here yet ?? ABC shops don’t have them I’ve looked everywhere

    I picked the variant edition up today. I like it, particularly the flickering white; however I find that I really have to shake it hard to activate it. I think I would have preferred a switch underneath it like on the TARDIS.

      August 29th, 2011 - 11:46am

      The variant one ? Is that the 1 with gallifreyan patterns. What is the difference is one of them just rarer ?

    • Mels

      September 3rd, 2011 - 2:45pm

      Try holding it and tapping the edge – I find that works far better than shaking it. 🙂

      Got this last Wednesday from toys r us! They had the variant there but I wasn’t really bothered with that! The product itself is good but is slightly dissapointing 3/5

    July 12th, 2011 - 10:33am

    Since when did it change colour?

    • spaceBUZZlite

      July 12th, 2011 - 3:34pm

      It never, it’s just character putting their own stamp on the product. Why don’t you like the colour?

  • Intergalactic

    July 12th, 2011 - 10:33am

    I think it’s actual name is a hyper-cube, but people just say psychic containers. 😐

    • booboo

      July 12th, 2011 - 10:35am

      That’s probably because the Doctor Called it a psychic container at the beginning of the episode

    • Adam Peter Mills

      July 16th, 2011 - 11:08pm

      But I think that was him explaining to his companions what it is, not what it’s called.

    • Mels

      July 24th, 2011 - 4:25pm

      If you think that’s bad, the Australian distributer has listed this as a ‘Conciousness Mood Cube’. 😯

      That name will go down as one of life’s eternal mysteries I think.

      July 11th, 2011 - 7:56pm

      To be honest i actually quite like it


      July 11th, 2011 - 8:07pm

      So are you saying its worth the price?

  • Mels

    July 10th, 2011 - 2:47pm

    Apparently there is one variant in every 12 containers.

    Not confirmed, but that’s what a few sellers have said.

    Just opened up the goo pod and found three heads, is that normal or i’m i just lucky

      You’re just lucky 🙂

    • booboo

      July 9th, 2011 - 8:50am

      3 heads! 😯

    • tardistik

      July 9th, 2011 - 10:55am

      nice one!


      July 10th, 2011 - 1:16pm

      that would be wierd having 3 heads!!

    • Mels

      July 10th, 2011 - 2:44pm

      I got 4 heads out of 5 pods, but only one head in each pod!

      I rather suspect some sorting machine (or person) burped to get that result, since 3 unique pieces would be the desired assortment…

      Go buy a lotto ticket!

  • Policebox

    July 8th, 2011 - 3:40pm

    I don’t think it’s worth £15.

    • Twelth Cyber Legion

      July 8th, 2011 - 4:43pm

      I agree. maybe £10

    • Bob

      July 8th, 2011 - 5:33pm

      Whos is the pattern on the second one

    • Bob

      July 8th, 2011 - 5:35pm

      Whos is the pattern on the second one? Or is it made up

    • booboo

      July 8th, 2011 - 5:37pm

      no its galifrian symbols of some sort

    • Bob

      July 8th, 2011 - 5:48pm

      So it is nOt a time lords symbol
      I wonder what it says
      Also it it just random writing
      It may be from the doctors cot

    • matt smithy

      July 9th, 2011 - 8:44am

      i think it is “the seal of rassalon” which has been used a few times in doctor who’s history

    • booboo

      July 9th, 2011 - 8:46am

      yes it is

    • 123abc

      July 9th, 2011 - 10:20am

    I emailed CO and asked if they were making Torchwood figures or Sarah jane in tribute to Elisabeth Sladen and they said they will take my ida into account 😀

    • Adam Peter Mills

      July 16th, 2011 - 11:15pm

      Someone already brought out Torchwood figures, but I don’t think it was CO. They were awful quality and were notably larger than CO’s 5″ figure ranges. I reckon CO would do a good job with Torchwood figures.

    • booboo

      July 17th, 2011 - 9:14am

      They were larger yes but i would hardly call the quality awful , cptn John as a brilliant figure

  • yogi bear

    July 8th, 2011 - 2:38pm

    i really like the 2nd pic

    • Mels

      July 8th, 2011 - 5:26pm

      Me too.

      I like the motion activated lighting idea too lol. 😀

      I’ll have to wait a bit before getting these though.

  • spaceBUZZlite

    July 8th, 2011 - 11:23am

    How big is it in hand, and do you think £14 is i a bit much

    • booboo

      July 8th, 2011 - 11:23am

      I dint know but we will have one very shortly to find out

    • anthony

      July 8th, 2011 - 5:09pm

    • booboo

      July 8th, 2011 - 5:10pm
