Viewmaster 3D Stereo System

viemaster fullcircleGaf View-Master

An exclusive collection of marvellous 3D pictures in full colour. Truly unbelievable!

Full Circle

Doctor Who and Romana attempt to return to Gallifrey, but the Tardis materialises on a strange planet called ALZARIUS. Here lives a community from the Starliner, a starship that crashed forty centuries ago and is still being made ready for departure. At Mistfall time the planet is blanked with fog and strange creatures rise up from the marshes and the people seek refuge in the Starliner. A gang of young people, the Cutlers, do not believe in the Mistfall story, but soon the myth proves true. Frightened to death they enter the Tardis, assault Romana and leave her stranded amidst giant Marsh-spiders. Adric. an intelligent young Outler and the Doctor rescue Romana, but she has lost her identity and is transformed into a raging creature. Will Romana be saved? What will the people of the Star-liner decide now that Doctor Who has discovered their secret ?

Introduced in 1939, The View-Master had a wide range of 3D, or so called stereo discs. Doctor Who discs include Full Circle and The Peter Davison story – Castrovalva.

Disks depicting scenic tourist attractions were particularly popular along with many Disney and other Motion film stories.

    I’ve got a boxed 1980 Dr Who Tom Baker Gaf view master. I’m aware that in 1980 these were basically removed from sale due to conflict of interest with Terry Nation over the Dalek images (he wasn’t consulted and permission wasn’t given for the image)It also has a Red Tardis too which is fun but odd? Has anyone got more info on how rare these are and how many are floating about. 🙂

      Thanks for the reply, Yes the very same one I’m pleased to say. Very surprised that the one listed on that eBay link was listed at that price too. Any idea how many are floating about? 🙂

      I’ve seen three to date in my 6 years on the net, my viewer although identical with box/contents with red 3D viewer has a slightly different design with the GAF logo not in white but embossed red and the eye piece is more straight rather than almond shaped of the viewer uploaded on the forum example. 🙂

      Update: Just realised my error, lol I have got the exact viewer It’s just facing the wrong way in the box giving the appearance of a different design. I haven’t really taken it out of the box that much as I was terrified I’d damage it so It’s a relief to know as I was a tad worried it was a replacement later viewer. 😛

    Had this when I was small and I played it to bits (Literally I overused it to the point where it wouldn’t go any longer) Amazing what a few years make, now I have the whole of Series 5 on my media player. Now if I could find a 3TB one I could have all of my Doctor Who videos on me at all times
