Matt Smith Selling Fast!
Found this on Northhampton Chronicle: He may have only appeared in the hit series for about a minute so far, but the action figure of the former Northampton School for Boys pupil is selling so quickly, fans are being forced to order the toy in advance or face missing out on the eleventh first official model. Matt's first figure is based on his first appearance in the show on New Year's Day, when he regenerated from Tennant's character.
The model shows him still wearing Tennant's torn suit, rather than the dickie-bow and tweed jacket he is due to wear when the new series of the programme starts in the spring.
While the model is on sale for £8.99 in shops, its rarity means many people who have managed to get hold of the toy are already trying to cash in on its scarcity.
On the internet auction site eBay, the Matt Smith models are currently being traded for between £20 and £30.
