One of our very favorite Geek Gems retailers is offering an awesome, limited time sale on Doctor Who gifts, action figures and novelties – and we couldn’t resist getting the word out! Now through April 26th, for every two items you purchase from the Doctor Who gift collection, the 2nd one will be discounted at 40% off. This includes everything from Doctor Who action figures to sonic screwdrivers, TARDIS novelties to t-shirts and wearables. They even offer stunningly detailed “masterpiece edition” busts of some of your favorite Doctor Who characters.
The sale on Doctor Who gifts ends on April 26th, and we haven’t found such a comprehensive – or affordable – collection anywhere else, so it’s definitely worth a look!
Sooooo … I’m not the biggest Doctor Who fan in the world. In fact, I may have only ever seen the first half of Christopher Eccleston’s season. (But keep that on the down-low; I’ve got a rep to protect!) Still, I’ve been known to make references to the iconic TARDIS from time to time, which trumps even Star Trek’s teleporter in pure, unadulterated win. So if a lackadaisical watcher such as myself got all wide-eyed over the ridiculously cool TARDIS mugs, surely the genuine Doctor Who fan in your life (or in your mirror) would love to sip their morning coffee or cocoa from one of these!
“Magic mugs” (as I thought of them whilst growing up) have always fascinated me, and the disappearing TARDIS mug is no exception. One one side, the time machine/spacecraft TARDIS sits innocuously on a street in its British Police Box pose; but add hot liquid and away it goes … only to magically reappear off in outer space (on the other side of the mug). SO. COOL. When it comes to Doctor Who gifts, this would be perfect for young and old fans alike!
So let’s say disappearing TARDIS mugs aren’t quite your style. If you’re a stickler for authenticity, the meticulously designed Replica TARDIS Mug is crafted in the likeness of the 11th Doctor’s time machine. The lid makes it perfect for keeping your cuppa steamy, and it holds an impressive 16oz of your favorite hot beverage. Actually, we think it would make a great container for all kinds of purposes! (Please note: this particular TARDIS mug is presently sold out but expected to be back in stock in late April 2011.)
