Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

So did anybody get their 1/6 Eleventh Doctor yet? I got a notice from Big Chief that they were going to go out last week, and I saw a review on Tardis Newsroom, but I still haven't heard anything from the place I ordered from...

Glad to see there's a Rory figure coming! Still need a figure for Wilf, though.

Apparently Bernard Cribbins really wants one, too--and that's reason alone to do one, in my book.

I think the did a good job on the likeness of the face but failed miserably on the hairdo.

I went to Character's website and clicked their "contact" option. I sent a very politely-worded email asking if they had any plans to do a Wilf figure, possibly releasing it in a double package with Donna. This is their response.

Thank you for your email.

We have no current plans to produce a Wilf figure.

Many rumours spread around lots of various Dr Who forums, and the only advice we can give is to await the official release details for accurate information.

Please see below website link this is all that is currently available and for any updates:

www.doctorwhoactionfiguresonline.co.uk
At least they know there is interest from at least one collector now. I didn't mention any rumors, just inquired about the possibility of releasing one. I'm guessing at least part of that is a canned response. Anyway ... never hurts to ask.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

While I will admit I have no "inside knowledge" to prove the following, I suspect we will see a "helmeted" Sutekh figure as a later release. There is presidence for this. Rememb er the Peter Davison "regeneration" figure, the one with Davison's head atop the burgundy coat and scarf arrangement? It was released first and later we got the same body with a Tom Baker head mounted. Davros, first we got a Terry Molloy version with the control board indicative of chair. Later, the Wisher version was released.

It seems to be the pattern that Character Options (in cooperation with Underground Toys and Forbidden Planet) will release a (debatably) less popular version of a character first with the knowledge a certain percentage of collectors will buy it immediately and later release the more memorable version.

This is actually a very smart marketing plan. If they were to release the more iconic version first, fans would more likely buy that one right away, but possibly outright ignore the "variant" if it's released later.

Having stated this and suspecting the strategy, I will likely get the jackel headed figure anyway because there is always the chance conditions may "go south" and the iconic "helmeted" figure may not get released. And that's what CO hopes, the collectors' "fear" of an aborted line will drive them to buy the earlier "variant" release. It certainly helps to offset the cost of development. If I were in the business, that's what I'd do.

Sincerely,

Bill

The Three Doctors set:



Yes, that's The Brig and Jo Grant.

The likeness on the Jo figure looks pretty crummy, unfortunately. Still getting it though.

It's expected to be released in January.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Hopefully, it's just the lighting "throwing off" the likeness.

A neat feature about the Jo figure, the set will have alternate arms without the "fur" sleeves and the coat can be removed. So, in effect, like the Tom Baker figure with swapping heads, you'll get two figures in one.

Oh, I must revise my observations about the Sutekh figure. Alistar Dewal (one of the key people at either Character Options or DesignWorks) "twitted" a purposely cryptic comment that a "follow up" Pyramids set will be released, but only the first one will have the "complete" Sutekh figure. One will need to get the first for the second to work. This has lead some fans to speculate the second set will contain Sutekh's "mask" but not a full Sutekh figure. Again, that part is speculation, but Dewal was clear that the second set is basically useless without the first.

Sincerely,

Bill

The Brig in the center looks awesome. But which one is Jo?

OUCH. The one with 2 Eyes, I believe.

Actually, it's not a great likeness for her either, but, that figure looks closer to Liz Shaw's face then Jo Grant's to me

Jo looks almost like they incorporated some of how Katy looks now. I could see her being hard to model, her face had a plain quality about it (don't mean that in a bad way) that would probably be hard to capture.
