Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Hmm. Have their prices gone down? Because I stopped ordering from them the minute I discovered Mike's and found it was cheaper, even with exchange rates and shipping, to get them from him than 90 minutes up the road.

Well, I've broken down and ordered a couple of Dalek figures from "Victory of the Daleks": the white Supreme Dalek (I'm not a huge-huge fan of the new design, but I do love the look of that white one); and the Ironside Dalek (the Blackout variant).

I haven't ordered anything from Pixel Barrel in a while, but they had all of those Paradigm Daleks available individually, and the Blackout Ironside actually wasn't "out of stock".
I got myself an Ironside a couple of weeks ago. Oddly I nearly got myself a Paradigm Dalek as well (red or orange I reckon would be good colours) they seem to look better in real life(Dr Who live) or as figures than they do on screen...most odd!

A quick look tells me nope. He probably ordered from there because he wanted an individual Dalek, when Mike's sells them as sets only.

^ Yeah, individually, the Paradigm Daleks are $17.99 each at Pixel; the Blackout Ironside is a little more, but I think Mike's is out of that one.

That's the backdrop that comes with the set. It's cardboard but comes out really nice in photos.

^ What's with the cape? Looks like that should go with Six's blue costume.

He wore that in Revelation. In-story, he was "forced" to wear blue as a sign of respect at the funeral ... but let's face it, he could walk around wearing Germantrude on his head and he'd look fantastic.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I must start getting some pics up of my own. I have a computer, at last, means i can now put some caption contests up again, yay.

Anyway, back on topic.

does anyone have this set?



Finally saw it in the flesh/plastic yesterday at a toy store.

Its pretty impressive looking, but i think thats down to the funky faux illumination on the wondows. The pic doesnt do it justice.

Now, why couldnt they have done this paint job on the FCT insread of the black? Fair enough, they didnt light the FCT like the previous one, but it looks awesome, the effect is pretty striking when you actually see the thing itself. The only difference between this and the FCT is that this one has no sound chip or lantern light.

Fair enough, it is easy to replicate this effect with pearlesscent paints an a coat of clear modelling varnish for the glass effect, but it still wouldve been cool to have this on the new FCT.

The word your looking for is regal.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Well, I've got a couple of the new Daleks on the way. I blame Worf for this. His ordering the White Supreme and posting a pic made me have to have one.

So I've got a White Supreme and a Blue Strategist on the way. I already have a Red Drone and I'm on big on yellow or orange so those two were easy to give a miss. Actually, there's very little in the two S5 waves that appeal to me. The only one I haven't got yet that I intend to pick up is a Silurian. I've got the Silurian General. I just need to get a warrior or two.
