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



Not happy with this. Basically a re-release of Colin (albeit with new accessory) and a repaint of an Earthshock Cyberman for 25 pounds (Aussie keyboards don't have the pound symbol). I would have prefered a single carded Stealth Cyberman. Still I think I might have to buy it to satify my completist OCD and then sell off the Colin on eBay to recoup some of my costs.

^ That accessory looks like a TNG phaser And the head sculpt looks less like Baker than the previous releases, though that could be just an unrefined prototype there.

I wonder if there'll be an Amelia figure. She could be dressed in her coat & rubber boots and the accessory could be the little suitcase she packed in "The Eleventh Hour".

Another one could be River Song in that white outfit she wore in most of Pandorica Opens/Big Bang.

the problem with that is, it risks looking a little to much like Padington Bear.

Then agin the Doctor opening the TARDIS to find Paddington as he was when he was found in the first book

In the first story, Paddington is found at Paddington railway station in London by the Brown family, sitting on his suitcase (bearing the label "WANTED ON VOYAGE") with a note attached to his coat which reads, "Please look after this bear. Thank you."
could be quite amusing.

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.
I would imagine a figure of Smith in his new costume will be part of the S6 line.

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.
I wouldn't think the Faceless Granny from The Idiot's Lantern would be marketable as an action figure, but they released one anyway. If she's marketable, than any companion, from classic or nu Who should be marketable.

I have 4 Colins already and I would prefer him to go to a good home than be imprisoned in a draw at my house.

I have three Colins so I'll be giving this one a miss. The Stealth Cyberman isn't that big a deal to me.

Yeah, that's a waste of a release. Talk about pointless re-issue...

Three? That's all? Don't you realize you need to have at least six of Six?

So anybody painted the Axon into a Krynoid yet


Also wonder if we'll get the various fake/alternate/evil Doctors. Watcher, Valeyard, Jackson Lake, Dream Lord....

You never know what they'll release but I wouldn't be up for any of those. Two-packs seem to be the way they go with the exclusives so if they did releases like those figures, it'd likely be packaged with a re-release of a Doctor already out there.

I don't even collect Doctor Who stuff but I would definitely buy this! It's a cross-over I would love to see

Finally an explanation of how one small bear gets from Darkest Peru to Paddington Station with only a jar of marmalade jam for sustenence.
