A Little Who for the Holidays – Light Up Christmas Tardis #DoctorWho
December 1, 2014

While looking up something else on line over the weekend I stumbled across this little holiday decor on Homedepot.com – a 28″ light up holiday Tardis!  You know those light up tinsel-y holiday lawn ornaments? Home Depot is carring quite a few licensed holiday displays this year including Snoopy, Hello Kitty, Angry Birds and Star Wars… but I was surprised that their online selection ALSO included Doctor Who.

This Tardis is a little over 2′ tall, if it had been half scale or larger it would be in my front yard RIGHT NOW!  It’s still VERY cool to see Doctor Who in the mainstream like this.


Here’s the description from the Home Depot website:

This Kurt S. Adler 28 in. Lighted Tinsel 3-D Tardis is a cool way for Doctor Who fans to celebrate the holidays. The Time and Relative Dimension in Space Tinsel comes in its familiar shape from the show as a 1960s-style London police box. We added a festive touch with mini lights, tinsel and a red bow. It will surely bring a sense of sci-fi fun to your indoor or outdoor decor.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
