Doctor Who Trading Card

Card #24 is the Densy Fisher Doctor Who line, it may seem weird to do a Mego line here considering the Megomuseum cards but I'm not sure when we're ever going to get around to this line and me being a monster fan, just had to do it. I consider it a foreign mego subset.

Growing up in Ontario in the 70s, Doctor Who was a big thing, it aired on TVO and was hosted by a guy called "Doctor Dator". I remember being destroyed when Jon Pertwee died and turned into Tom Baker thinking "this new guy sucks!".

While these Denys Fisher Mego figures were sold in the UK, Italy and Australia, I really think the Canadian Mego Distributor dropped the ball in not releasing them here. I think they would have sold fantastic, I don't know anybody that grew up in Ontario that doesn't know who Doctor Who is.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I've always wanted these Dr. who toys!! They're difficult to find, even at the largest collectible shows.

Of course, one of those cards might suffice for now... :) :) :)

TVO and the 70s spells Doctor Who to me! I remember even TVO carrying the programme in the 80s (until about the time (and during) YTV picked it up). I would have gone crazy for those toys as a tyke.

of course, these were never in America. Oh, the adventures I could have created with a Dr. Who and my Mego ST:TOS figs...

I didn't realise they were so hard to find, just some like the Cyberman.
I bought a few of them years ago when I was really into collecting Doctor Who.
I DO need to get me one of the cards though.
