I'd say a little from column A, and little from column B.
I'd only be worried if I actually "played" with them, instead of standing them in place like an idol or worship totem.
Personally, I have always lived with the promise I made myself as a child that, one day...even if I had to have them individually created myself....I would have figures or statues of every Doctor. I'm just fulfilling my obligations to that twelve-year-old that demands it.
Also, I love being able to walk into my office, and be able to scan all The Doctors in the console room. Like a 3-d poster, or something...
