Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Underground Toys tweeted that the Classic Who SDCC exclusive will be a Leela figure with "a bunch of accessories", including a crossbow.

I'd be interested in that if the likeness is good, but given their recent efforts I'm not too optimistic.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Looks pretty decent, from what you can tell in a pic like that. Miles better than the River Song figure.

Interesting about the packaging. I doubt they'd redesign the packaging for just one figure so it's probably a safe bet that more classics are on the way.

It doesn't look much like the actress, does it? Clever how her necklace hides the seam though.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Hmm. Looked better in the package. Between this, and the River figure... these promo pics are really not selling the figures for me. Which means I'm reluctant to buy. I don't have the option of walking into a store to look at one in person, I just order blindly online and with all the shoddy QC issues of late, plus questionable likenesses...

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

^ Frankly, I think I'm pretty much done with DW figures, at least until Eight is released in someway other than the big box set. The excitement just isn't there with the recent batches of figures as there used to be with the earlier ones. Oh well.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Very much agreed. We got about a year of re-releases and variants with those four Davros sets. The Revenge of the Cybermen and Remembrance of the Daleks sets were never released on this side of the pond and then there were those two classic Sontaran sets which were a re-released Doctor, a Sontaran and a big silver gold ball as a ship that, when the door was opened, didn't even have enough room for the Sontaran to even fit inside.

The River figure and now the Leela figure have various likeness issues, and River has that awful fit with the hair...

I heard today that DWW still do the sculpts for the classic figures (good) but they've lost the contract for the new series figures.

All is not well in DW toyland. The excitement is gone for me too. There are more classics coming but... it'll take a lot, including bloody good likenesses, for me to get that enthusiasm back.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I'd love Sideshow Collectibles to grab a DW licence. They make fantastic 12" poseable figures with excellent screen-accurate likenesses and detailing.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Looks like I have to get another 11th doctor figure. Looks more like Matt Smith.






This should teach me to hold off on first releases and wait till future figures come out that looks more like the actor

I dunno. In some ways it does and some ways it doesnt look like Smith. The crash set that most of us have look like Smith in 3d with our own eyes. The 2d image never gives figures justice. However that theory is sometimes reversed (Serenity, 8th Doc, NuTrek etc)

The new Smith figure is for Season 6 as we all know, so has different hair and skinnier face sculpt. The crash set has Smiths old fuzzy messy hair and looks ok.

I saw the Doctor with fez and mop in a shop and the sculpt i saw wasnt that great. However the mop/fez one i own is a much better sculpt, so eiher a crappy batch or i was having an off day.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Damn phone wont let me edit properly.

Speaking of The Flesh, id love a Flesh Doctor with new boots. As long as it looks as creepy as Smith did in the Ep.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

After the Leela figure, I was expecting more classic companions. Nothing announced yet but there is a City of Death twin-pack just announced with the Fourth Doctor and the baddie. I have enough Fourth Doctors and don't care about Count Whats-his-name but it does look good.
