Great Moments in Merchandising

First up an old classic, the Doctor Who Easter egg which, with a little adaptation, could probably still be used should Peter Davison decide to advertise Viagra.
Thanks to for the Suchard Easter Egg picture

Secondly, the cover for The Macra Terror audio CD on which some airbrushed crazed artist has drawn fangs and given the cover star a shave to remove all that unsightly facial hair.

A Macra, yesterday.

Now with fangs! Extra frightening!

Sadly none of the other audio CD covers have been artistically enhanced to such a degree but take a close look at the cover for The Invasion which appears to feature a tidal wave of fire hidden under the Doctor Who logo.
