    Hi, do we know whether character will create a version to fit the Australian button battery regulations?

    If not, how will Australians require this limited and awesome sonic screwdriver?

    Managed to get hold of a few of the Standard edition. One for display (got all the sonics), one for my son to play with (yes, buying the toy for actual PLAY) and one to keep mint in box. However, is it just me, or with the limited release of Doctor Who toys, its just getting harder and harder to get hold of things?

    I had to order a TARDIS on ebay for the inflated price (I have a complete Character Options TARDIS collection), and I was looking for the 5 doctors/white daleks sets in a B&M, but nothing.

    I looked on eBay for the screwdriver and I saw on listed for £999.99 (and no I didn’t mess the price up) £999.99! Why in earth would someone charge so much for a toy

    be careful if buying on ebay looks like there are now some fakes doing the rounds on ebay as some have hong kong location or no feedback which is never good.
