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

See, I couldn't disagree more about McGann. Sure, he's about as close to Paul as Tom's smiling head is to Tom (I mean, how hard is it to get Baker's famous smile down? There's plenty of pics to go by). But, McGann's eyes are almost luminescent in certain respects, and it's because of this that it nails McGann for me. Paul's Doc has those wide, bright, distinct, alien eyes. The figure draws your attention to the eyes, and I find that it's pretty close match. Enough for me to say, yeah, that's the 8th Doctor...

Thinking of what still needs to be made as far as variants for the Docs. Let's see...

Third Doctor in Second Doctor's clothing (Not really seen in Spearhead, but could be cool anyway).


A few Third Doctor variants for his various outfits.

The Fourth Doctor's main Graham William's outfit (Kind of light brown, with the hat not worn as often).

Fourth Doctor in Thal clothing (From "Genesis")

Fifth Doctor in the other sweater he wore for his last season.

Fifth Doctor in "Planet of Fire" suspenders (Why didn't they do this for the Ainley set?)

Seventh Doctor in Six's coat from Time and The Rani

and no #1 IMO-TV movie McCoy!
Hmmm, interesting!

Not sure if I agree about a couple of those (when the Season 18 Baker/K9 set comes out, we'll have had four Fourth Doctor figures, and it seems like that should be enough), but I definitely agree about your Davison suggestions, and I demand a TV Movie McCoy figure.

Other thoughts for variant Doctors:
  • "Unaired pilot" Hartnell Doctor, with spectacles/different costume
  • Androgum Troughton - from "The Two Doctors"
  • Sixth Doctor - Seville outfit from "The Two Doctors"
  • Ninth Doctor - formalwear version from "Titanic" photo (OK, I'm being slightly less than serious about this one )
  • Eleventh Doctor: formalwear with top hat, from Amy's wedding (and yes, I *am* serious about this one)
  • Eleventh Doctor: "The Big Bang" version with fez and mop

Couldn't really think of any more Pertwee or Tennant variants, as there are already three or four each of those out there as well, and I think you've got the Davison and McCoy necessaries pretty well sorted.

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

Here's another list I'd like to see:
Hartnell, without coat, from end of Unearthly Child

Troughton, older, greyer, from The Two Doctors

Pertwee, random variant outfit with Bessie set

Tom in Talons of Weng-Chiang gear

Peter in suspenders outfit from Planet of Fire (as suggested)

Colin in his Seville outfit from The Two Doctors (as suggested)
Colin in whatever outfit Colin Baker himself would design for his Doctor (limited variant)

Sylvester from TV movie (as suggested)
Syl in whatever outfit Sylvester himself would design for his Doctor (limited variant)

McGann is open territory for a multitude of imaginative variants

Eccleston in Titanic outfit (as suggested)
Eccleston in tattered McGann 'Time War' Regen Outfit

Tennant in 'Arthur Dent'-mode circa The Christmas Invasion

Smith with mop and fez
Smith in tux (as suggested)

Ainley in his black velvet attire

Eric Roberts Master in leather 'Terminator' look from TV Movie/Enemy Within
Roberts in Gallifreyan Robes from TV Movie/Enemy Within

Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart (from Pertwee era)
Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart (black and white variant from Invasion)

Sgt. Benton (from Pertwee era)

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

Really, how many variants of the Doctors do we need?
Much as I love Hartnell, I'm not going to buy 1st Doctor in Aztec clothes, in monk-habit from the Time Meddler, toga from the Romans, atmospheric density jacket from Web Planet, borrowed robes from the Crusade... Hartnell changed out of his standard costume an awful lot!
And then you could add in Pertwee in jeans and t-shirt from season seven.
Some variants are nice... but the TNG figures reached the point where they came pretty close to putting out 'Picard with coffee stain on his uniform, from Q Who?', and I don't want Who to go that way. The 'Ghostbuster' Tennant was already bad enough.

Then don't! What's the harm of allowing others the opportunity to do so? Who does it harm?

No, I disagree. Variety allows options, and no one is forcing you to buy it...

^ On the other hand, you could go to town on any number of hypothetical costume variants for the Eight, but unless he pops up again on TV with a different costume, I don't think we'll see any other figure of him with different duds.

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

Well, I just meant variants based on audio stories, comics, etc. Alt-media stuff, like with the blue-suit Colin Baker figure...

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

I take your point The, but...
If you issue too many variants, then too many people drop out of being completists, and the figures stop coming as they're not profitable, even though the people who've given up on buying Doctor-variants might well be happy to fork out for Ian and Barbara, or a Romana twin pack.

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

Well, I didn't mean in place of other Classic figure releases. I just meant, throughout the Ace's and the Jamie's there should be a Pertwee in bathrobe and shower cap (complete with Royal Marine tat!) from Spearhead or a Viking Regen-Tom from Robot, as well...

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

On the same token, we could have the fifth Smith variant of what weve seen in spy pics from Sarah Jane Adventures and the possible outfit change for Xmas special filming. Granted its a little pointless as its really only a few subtle differences in the costume texturing and detail.

But still, like we said after The Big Bang aired, an eleven in tux and top hat and one with a fez, mop and vortex manipulator would be awsome.

I think that any future Doctor variants should be accompanied by either a classic Monster/Villain or a classic Companion.

Love those suggestions!

I'd quite like a "Sarah Jane Adventures" retired Lethbridge-Stewart as well.

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

I'd much rather have classic companions as opposed to monsters. Of course, they'd come in two-packs or three-packs and then I'd have to sell off single Doctors, or the Doctors from the sets if they were just re-releases. I've already got at least two of each Doctor so my preference would just be classic companion sets, much like the Dalek collectors sets.

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

Not sure the companions are really as marketable as the Doctor and the monsters. When you look at how many companion figures there are (with the exception of show runners Sarah Jane and Captain Jack), there really is not that much.

BTW I wonder if there will be more season 5 figures? I'm suprised a Silurian warrior was not included in the first set, and there's potential for a Cybermen variant (Not sure how it would work though). Plus the Centurion from the Fires of Pompeii set should be easy enough to use for an Auton (or Rory). Plus there's the Doctor in the wedding suit/hat.

A Roman-Auton is definitely in the works. Someone fannish associated with Character Options has had his face scanned for the sculpt.
