Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I just don't understand why CO refuse to release a River and Rory figure. They would be instant hits yet they just won't produce them.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

No Rory has been released though apparently Arthur Darvill has said one is coming.

And that's an S4 River. Fans/collectors want an updated one where she's wearing something other than the space suit.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I finally broke down and got myself an 11 tardis, and a set of 10 and Martha. Next, 9 and Rose. Then ill have a display of all the modern Doctor/Companions, minus Donna.

When they make a Rory and a River, ill get them too.

What I REALLY want is an Ace to go with my 7.

Can't wait to get a Rory, but I'm still bitter that there's no Wilfrid Mott action figure.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Apart from the Next Doctor Cyberleader (Which was part of the Cybermen wave) and the four End of Time figures (The two Doctors, Rassilon/Narrator and the Master), I don't think there were any other figures for the 2009 specials.

I wonder if they'll ever consider making figures based on the 1960s Peter Cushing movies. Sure they're kind of obscure and not that great, but it'd be kind of nifty to have the Cushing "Dr.Who" and Daleks from that movie. Product Enterprise made a few of them a couple years back, but those are extremely rare these day.

Ahh, i see how theyre getting around the "exclusive to Dr Who experience" for the Amelia. The exclusive one wears a HAT and coat. Oooooo.

They announced "Amelia Pond" as a figure that would only be sold in one shop in London (as far as I know its london). But the mass market one is going to be simply a little different, and the "exclusive" just is wearing a hat and coat.


Interview with Katy Manning says a Jo Grant figure is on the way.

Ah, ok. That makes sense.

Useless is getting one, and not Susan? or Jamie? Or (classic) Sarah Jane?

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I think we'll see the classic companions coming out slowly, and likely in two-packs like Peri & Sil.

So, Jo Grant next and I'm hoping we get the Brig.

Ian
Barbara
classic Sarah Jane
Romana II
Romana I
Leela
Ace

Considering who she is, Susan is important but I'd give her a miss. And I'd want Tegan in there.

And in other news, they announced the Time Warrior set. Same shit as the Sontaran Experiment set. A repaint of an existing Doctor. A lame Sontaran Pod ship with no interior, just a door that opens to reveal a tiny chair and a Sontaran that's just a slight tweak on the last one.

Like I mentioned up thread, I know a lot of collectors that aren't completists that are having an easy time passing on all of these.

CO really, really needs to step up their game. Almost everything they've done recently have just been bloody repaints.
