Introductions: The Baker Street Door has arrived!

For alumfelga, fueschgast and jackwabbit and everyone that is a Sherlock fan - today I got the Baker Street door and it's awesome! So many great details. Check them out under the cut!



Remember how I carried the TARDIS home in my huge suitcase? This time I was even able to close it! The box had the same length but was a little bit thinner.

Still it was a tight fit from top to bottom!

Nice box:

Once I got off one half of the styrofoam it looked like this:

It comes with a Sherlock head variant with deerstalker. Since it is so complicated to switch out heads I intent to sell this and get some money back. Even though the new head is painted much more nicely and realistically. But Sherlock only wore it once, very shortly, I don't really consider it "his". Plus I think the Victorian version will come with one that can be taken off (this one is sculpted) and so I could put this onto him if I like to?

If I hadn't known that this is supposed to look like that I would have been worried of it being broken ;)

And this is where it belongs:

It snaps into the wall nicely via magnets:

And voilá!

Worn out stairs:

And the letter box even opens! I hadn't expected that. The door does not open, they didn't want to put interiour behind it.

Knock knock!

Looks like Mycroft was here?

And who stole the plate?

My window has a scratch though. Not sure yet what to do about it. I hope it won't be visible in pictures:

Someone was eager to check out his new home!

Turn around, Sherlock!
