Farewell Doctor….
January 3, 2010

This weekend marked the last episode of David Tennant as Dr. Who.    I’m sad to see him go because I REALLY enjoyed his run as the Doctor… but I’m hopeful for the new seasons as I REALLY love everything that new show runner Stephen Moffett has ever written for the show.

As a farewell tribute here is a video that Abby cut together tonight as a send off to Mr. Tennant.


Long live the Doctor….

Daniel Pickett
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, 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.

    That was so messed up…and utterly hilarious.

  • Wow that didn’t take long to start getting parodies.

    nice work….I shall miss him so.

    I liked it. It reminded me of Peter Davison’s regeneration, except that David Tennant was given a longer send-off as a farewell nod to the fans. Both Doctors willingly sacrificed themselves for someone else. Both were given highly emotional endings. And just like Davison’s transformation into Colin Baker, Matt Smith appears to be mentally unbalanced right from that first scene. Going by the previews it seems like he’s going to be more of an action-oriented Doctor than most of his predecessors.

    Love him or not, David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor certainly left his mark on the series. He’ll be a tough act to follow.
