If I can't get a Zoe figure wearing Dulcian garb I'll boycott the entire range

The cynic in me wonders whether they are releasing the Genesis set last, as it's the one people want the most (the "definitive" Davros). If it were released first, people perhaps would resist purchasing the rest.

Seems like all the fans want companions rather than more Daleks. I thought after the Peri figure they might do more.
And all the Genesis set is is yet another Fourth Doctor variant, yet another Davros variant and... ooooh... wait for it... yet another repaint of the same Dalek. No Harry or Sarah. No Nyder. Really, nothing worth getting unless you're a completest.

I'm glad actually because it makes it wonderfully easy for me to resist buying.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Earlier in this thread, I blamed Worf's getting a White Supreme Dalek for my ordering one. I also got the Blue Strategist (damn you Worf!!!)

So, anyhow... yeah, here are some pics of my three nuDaleks. I don't like yellow or orange so I think it's safe to say I'll not be getting them. Oh, and there's a pic of the SDCC Assault Dalek released a few years back that was my favourite colour job on all the RTD era Dalek toys.

^ Nice lighting on those, Josan! The first one looks like it could almost be a frame grab from an episode!

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

So, any word on series 6/7 figures?


The Silents/silence and Astronauht seem like they'd make sense. Also River Song would be nice, although they never made figures of her for her previous Smith appearences (Just one for the Library Tennant two-parter).

Plus maybe there will be another Cyberman, this time with the new chest panel.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

If they made an Eleven with a fez, it seems logical they'll make another with a Stetson. I can see one for Amy wearing blue jeans & the red plaid shirt, possibly one for River too. Definitely a Silent, and possibly the astronaut, though the visor would have to pull up to reveal whoever is inside there, otherwise there's nothing really Doctor Whoee about it. And eventually, probably one or two of those creepy doll-things from that upcoming episode.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Lots of fans were hoping for an S5 River figure. It never happened. I wonder if there'll be one for S6. So far, they've only had her in the space suit from S4.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I'm thinking the companions/recurring characters probably don't sell that well. There were only a few Roses and Marthas, and one Donna. Jack and Sarah Jane had a bit more but they of course had their own shows-and K-9 usually comes packed with a Doctor or companion. Plus I don't see the Peri/Sil set being that popular.

The major draw of the line seems to be the Doctor and the recurring monsters. Although the season 5 line did have some 'huh?' figures, although not to the level of Grandma Connely or destroyed Cassandra.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Been a while since anything was released that caught my eye, or anyone else's apparently. Four classic Davros/Doctor/Dalek sets that are all variants and repaints is pretty damned boring.

This one is a re-releases too but it's the Delgado Master and comes with some nice accessories. And for about $25 it's an easy yes for me.

Series 6 Wave 1:

I'm definitely getting a Silent or two.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I'll be getting the Delgado I mentioned above your post but Wave 1 of Series 6 is an easy pass for me. Another Ood, two variants of the Silence, one with an open mouth, one closed, another Doctor variant and a young Amelia. Not sure what the thinking is but these lame re-releases and re-paints in both the classic and new series lines are easy, easy passes for a lot of collectors I know.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Since I already have a Delgado Master this is an easy pass for me. Would be nice to have that 70s Computer TARDIS instead of the orange lump of an Axon that sits in my closet.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I'm only getting the Delgado for his Tardis. As I don't need two, the figure itself will go a friend of mine that I often split orders with. But I do wish they'd released this one first instead of the big orange turd of an Axon.

In lurking over at Galifrey Base, and a few other forums, the S6 Wave 1 figures are largely underwhelming. Wonder what CO's thinking is? Cheap re-releases while they make us wait for something decent?

I know they're also releasing a Junk Tardis playset, the one from Saturday's episode, designed by that young girl that won the Blue Peter contest (good for her). Now, if it also came with an Idris figure... that would be a worthy addition to a collection.
