Cover blurb:
David J Howe and Arnold T Blumberg present the definitive collector’s guide to Doctor Who merchandise. From the rare and obscure to the commonplace and disposable, every facet of Doctor Who’s penetration into the marketplace is detailed.

This volume documents all the items released over 2004 and 2005, when Doctor Who made a triumphant return to televsion and established itself as the top rated drama series in the UK. Also contained within are features and interviews with some of the companies who produce the merchandise — including an extensive interview with Character Options, the people behind the new range of toys and action figures — and those who buy it. Howe’s Transcendental Toybox is both a fascinating tour through the many ways that Doctor Who has been presented and an entertaining guide to the world of Doctor Who collecting.

Note:  Same ISBN and contents as the original edition (although the ISBN has been converted to 13 digits). The difference is that the photos are in full colour throughout the book, instead of the mostly-black-and-white original. The front cover accordingly has a “Now in full colour” flash in the corner.
