Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Actually just got my "Personalise Your Sonic Screwdriver Set" yesterday.
http://www.geekalerts.com/u/Doctor-W...crewdriver.jpg

It's really neat if you're into the sonic screwdrivers. Contains all the parts to build an Eleventh Doctor's sonic, but also enough other mix and match parts to build many more different sonics of your own. Two specific combos look more like they could be used by the Twelfth and Thirteenth Doctors, IMO.

Features two basic sound and lightup effects, but several more hidden ones.

Looks like they're getting sloppy with the paint jobs again.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I've heard from a retailer that there are some serious QC issues with Leela. Now, there are always complaints from fans on forums but when a retailer comments on it... anyone know what they are? I didn't think the likeness was very good but I was thinking of picking on up eventually.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I think it's in regards to the paint job indeed being a bit sloppy on a large number of Leelas. Who North America knocked off six bucks from their remaining Leela stock and has them all listed with a "Flawed Paint Application" disclaimer.

I've also seen complaints with the NASA suit. The toy maker's can't put NASA logo's on the suit due to NASA copyrighting everything
Three things:
1) Logos are trademarked, not copyrighted.
2) Since it's a government agency, it can't copyright or trademark anything. There's a separate statute that disallows unapproved use of government seals and logos without unofficial approval, unless it's commentary or creative work which falls under first amendment protections. Commercial uses, like merchandise, doesn't fall under that category.
3) Why the hell wouldn't NASA approve of Doctor Who? Did they even bother asking?

I know this is nerdy as hell, but I couldn't help it. My Supreme Dalek figure and White iPhone 4 just look right together.



I wonder what their kids would look like?

I haven't bought any figures or toys in years though a couple of the Who figures have picqued my interest. Looking at the pictures though why do they go for such dour, stern expressions. They look like they're disapproving of your thoughts to play with them.
