In a land of myth, and a time of magic, the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young boy. His name... Merlin.

As spoken by The Great Dragon Kilgharrah at the start of every episode of the BBC TV series Merlin.

Now you can get a poseable action figure of Kilgharrah, as produced by scificollector, together with characters from the series, Arthur, Gaius and Morgana.  Unfortunately Merlin himself has sold out, good warlocks are difficult to come by.  Gwen and Uther are due for release shortly.
These figures are of course available at Time Was... in the Buttermarket in Newark On Trent, Notts or online at

Busy times

It's been a while since the last blog because at Time Was... we've been busy. Together with the shop we've also been up and down the country at various events. Some a lot more successful than others. But we've also been to the Autumn Fair at the NEC to find new products and these will soon be on the website, many are already in the shop.

New fantasy figures by Nemesis Now, new Beatles die-casts from The Factory, new Doctor Who Character Build from Character Options and many more. It's been so busy that we've not been able to get them on the website yet. These will be coming shortly and we'll keep you upto date.

We may be a bit slow, but delivery was only last week and it's better to be busy than not.

See you soon at Time Was... or if you are out and about why not try the Old Glory Wargaming show at Derby University this weekend, we'll be there Saturday and Sunday, but not at the shop.

Alchemy Pendants

The new Alchemy pendants are now in stock. Our prices at Time Was... are amongst the lowest, if not the lowest, on the internet.

Alchemy was founded in Leicester, England in 1977 by two self-taught artist/model maker/designers from Manchester: Geoff Kayson and Trevor Phillipson.
Their imaginative, high quality work and products soon earned them the attention of some influential and high profile clients. This established them in the, ‘promotional products’ business, designing and producing items as diverse as bronze statues, album covers, collectable giftware and Rock ‘n’ Roll merchandise.

Their jewellery pendants are much sought after and Time Was... bring you the best at
