Yes, I happen to have a Type 39 TARDIS. The chameleon circuit is still giving me problems, likely a design flaw I think.
It has appeared at the 2013 Mensa annual gathering in Ft Worth (it was part of a wedding), the 2013 Dallas WhoFest, at (name retracted) in New Orleans, and at various driveways and yards around Austin.
There is also a most awesome TARDIS game, that we perform wherever the TARDIS goes.
Location :NW Austin, Texas, USA
Weight: ~1/4 ton
Materials: MDF sides and base, Pine corner posts, and professionally done signage.
Height: 8′ 10″
Sound: Yes, there is an internal sound system that can constantly play the TARDIS hum at low frequencies.
Materialization time: 2 people: 1.25 hours, 3 people: 45 min. + travel to vehicle
De-materialization time: 3 people: 30 min. + travel to vehicle
Main transport: GMC long bed truck.
Yes, I rent it out. Well, not really. The TARDIS itself is free, but I have to haul it and come with it, therefore as the curator, I ask for a donation of $450 + ($0.40/mi) + hotel stipend to cover my time, labor, maintenance, hotel, gas money, and the upgrades that I am slowly adding. Bear in mind, I operate the TARDIS as an unofficial non-profit. I just don’t want to lose so much money that I have to say no to loaning it out to good causes. That would suck.
I only loan it out to those with a truly good cause, or a good convention. So basically, if you are an interesting non-profit, contact me via the contact page.
Example of non-good causes: Someone’s birthday party, publicity stunt for a corporate function, trade show prop, etc.
- I or my friends must be able to watch the TARDIS at all times.
- Our word is law around the TARDIS.
- The inside is off limits, except if one of us permits it.
- Photos are fine, we’ll even help.
- The TARDIS must not be set up where it can cause a bottleneck
- The TARDIS needs power
Projector with sound – To play short videos on the nearby wall.
15″ subwoofer to get a better ‘feel’ when playing the TARDIS hum.
