Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

Yeah, I got my Eleven Doctors set yesterday and I was admittedly concerned because I heard numerous horror stories around the 'net about how badly some sets were made (sloppy paint jobs, figures with wrong or missing body parts, etc.). But thankfully, I got a good set without any defects.

One thing that was brought to my attention was that the 11th Doctor in the big set is slightly different than the 11th in the "TARDIS Crash" set (different head sculp--a more angular face).

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

Got my UC First Doctor/Tardis set a few days back and I love the Tardis. It's my favourite of the three I have (the other two being the Fourth's and Ninth's/Tenth's).

I've got my Amy and two Ironside Daleks, and my Fifth/Master on the way so hopefully they're defect free.

As for the Eleventh Doctor Tardis set... I still kinda want it but it still like it looks like shit. The Ninth/Tenth Tardis set was easy to finish. You just printed out the wall panels floating around the net and there you were.

With this one, with the crazy, jagged cuts, the walls not even reaching the ceiling/top of the time rotor and the exterior doors just being a cardboard print... it still comes across as cheap and lazy.

And they definitely put knee joints in her bare legs, unlike the prototype? I was hoping they'd take a hint from the bare arms of the Rose figure, which didn't have any mid-point joints.

and two Ironside Daleks
How does the Ironside Dalek look? As cool as the photos?

I had pre-ordered both Amy and an Ironside from Mike's some months ago, so hopefully I'll be getting mine soon too.

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

I'll let you know when I get them. I should have put in a comma after "Fifth/Master". I meant to say I've got them all on the way, not that I already had Amy and the Daleks.

As for the joints, yeah, it's kind of a drag that they do mar the look of a figure in a mini skirt. But then again, they're more toys than collectors pieces so we have to make do with the silly articulation points. I still think the bicep joint is daft.

To accommodate my figures, this past weekend I decided to have a go at making my own Classic console from some instructions I found online. Yesterday I put the plinth together and will next look at fixing it to the console base. I'll show pix when it's finished.

Just got my Planet of Fire two-pack with Davison/Ainley, as well as the Castrovalva regen figure. All are flawless...

See, least with the Nine/Ten tardis playset, it had a decent but still toyish look to it. I loved it and infact considered buying one, but didnt.

For Gods sake, they even had a police box front with the time vortex printed on the outside on the inner wall inserts so it looked like you were looking at the police box, which you were. You could open the doors and see in just like the show, and make the Doctor walk through and into the Tardis. Thats inspired design and toy making.

With this one being a printed police box interiror is, just, fucking crap.

Also this one, ironically like the actual set itself, needs to be bigger in scale to accomodate the actual stuff and features it has.

Give this playset more room, and the stair ways will flow better instead of looking like ladders and the off-shoots above and below will look better becaseu theyre not so close together it will just not only look better, but will be easier for kids, and us, to play with or display.

What i might do though is try and get hold of Elevens console separately on ebay, and do something like i did with Nine/Tens console from the playset and place it inside the flight control tardis to give it depth. I found a flight control tardis at a boot sale the other month, so now i have two RTD police boxes, so i might give it a respray and paint the window frames so i have an Eleventh Tardis. Its not that im being cheap, its just a fact that the first flight control tardis is better than the new one, besides, the windows and interior light up.

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

Well, my Amy and two Ironsides arrived today.

After seeing some scary pictures of some bad paint jobs on some of the Amy figures I was quite pleased that mine is as perfect as you can get with these figures. Unfortunately, the knees joints/pegs do mar the legs Worf loves so much. And with the miniskirt, she can't sit or bend forward... though why someone would want a figure bent over is beyond me.

And my one Ironside Dalek is perfect as well. The second... has a chunk out of the bottom bumper on the front right. Oh well, battle damaged I guess.

That's almost as sick as my comment re: what's under Amy's skirt.

Well what is under the skirt? Panties? Or is she going commando?

Ok ok ..... I'm leaving ...... *takes coat and leaves*

Panties. The legs are painted flesh tone all the way up and the pelvic area is black. They're not sculpted as panties though.

Satisfied? Or disappointed?
