Special Event at HamleysBookmark and Share

Friday, 19 September 2014 - Reported by Marcus
Starting this weekend, a special Doctor Who event take place at five Hamleys Toy Shops in locations around the UK, when a series of uniquely numbered exclusive posters will be available for fans to get their hands on.

The posters are the first and only collector’s posters ever created by the producers of the official Doctor Who figures, Character Options. On each poster the entire collection of 3 ¾ inch figures they have released to date are shown. Only 250 of the posters have been produced for the five Hamleys stores (London Regent Street, Glasgow, Cardiff, Dublin and Manchester) and each is uniquely numbered from 1-250 for authenticity.

The poster has been created to celebrate the launch of the latest series of Doctor Who figures, which have been produced to commemorate the new TV series and the brand new Twelfth Doctor played by Peter Capaldi. The new figure of the Twelfth Doctor in his chosen outfit has been shipped to Hamleys especially for this event

To be eligible fans must purchase an item from Hamleys’ Doctor Who collection. The posters will be available as a free gift with that purchase but only while stocks last. There is no minimum spend, but as the gift is unique it is restricted to one per customer.

Grant Yuill, Marketing Manager of Hamleys commented
Our free limited edition Doctor Who poster day is a very exciting event for our shops. Doctor Who has so many fans that like to collect the figures and other memorabilia but now with the chance of owning one of these very exclusive posters we expect there to be a huge demand. What’s more we have an added bonus of 25 goodie bags for fans that come dressed in Doctor Who costume. These will be distributed free of charge on a first come first served basis.
The posters will be available from the following stores on the selected dates;
  • London Regent Street – 20th September 2014 from 9:30am
  • Manchester – 20th September 2014 from 9:30am
  • Glasgow – 20th September 2014 from 9am
  • Cardiff – 27th September 2014 from 9:30am
  • Dublin – 28th September from 10am
