A slob who enjoys playing for thrills, Torts shoots gloopy, green slime from its hands. Everything sticks to this turtle-like creature—which is great fun when goofing around and perfect for catching a Nixel or two!” $4.99

The latest addition hearkens back to the Fourth Doctor’s reign with a K-9 figure who lights-up and utters his cute little catchphrase, “Affirmative, Master.” These little boxed sets include a small booklet on the history of the included item. They are small and inexpensive enough for stocking stuffers or gift exchanges.  $9.59-$12.95
