Details on upcoming toys revealed at the London Toy Fair:

[PICS CUT OUT: see earlier post!].
Is that a very big union jack Dalek, or are those new size past Doctor figures?
The Dalek is big. Those figures are old ones from the 11 Doctors set from a while back, and are there to advertise the reissue of the set.

The new, smaller size is only for modern Who. Classic Who toys will still be made in the same size.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

The only figures I'll be collecting now are the classics as they're still being done in the 5" scale. My interest in figures, since I'm not a kid playing them, is Doctors, companions and certain baddies, mainly Daleks and Cybermen. Hopefully FP & UT will commission the occasional new series figure in the 5" scale as exclusives or for SDCC.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Ummh. Rather wish they'd made the Axon a little less accurate to the costumes as seen on set, and slightly more like they were supposed to look and did in artwork... ie, no obvious sleeves! (Like I wouldn't want a Silurian figure with an obvious gap between mask and body, however often they came loose onscreen in Warriors of the Deep).head and

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

My enthusiasm for collecting has dropped a lot over the last few years. The new series figures being in 3.5" means I'll never pick up any of those.

With the classics, which continue in the 5" scale... the three packs are rarely, if ever, appealing to me. With each one released there's only one figure, maybe two, that I'm intersted in and the third is a definite "no thanks" which means I wind up not buying the set at all since the ones I don't want are the ones no one else really wants either which means selling it off on eBay isn't really an option. The Claws of the Axos is a perfect example. I'd like the Brig, Jo is 50-50 and the Axon is a big "no".

And since they're keeping the classics in the 5" scale, with smaller production runs, largely for the collectors I really wish they'd ditch the bicep and thigh articulation points. And I've come to hate those elbow and knee pegs. Other lines can cover them up. I really wish CO would have.

Did Jo wear that many rings in Axos?

Yeah, I've never understood those. Human limbs don't split/turn like that, so why do the figures? It just detracts from the look of the figure, along with those large knee joints.

Here's an image of the Skaldak figure:



I think it looks pretty darn good, especially considering it's only 3.75 inches.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Even better is the new Daemons set just announced with the Brig, the Master and Bok.

I'll be picking that one up. Couldn't care less about the 3.75 scale.

Someone jokingly suggested that Bok should be able to be dismembered after experiencing those "five rounds, rapid."

Since it's classic series, will it be full size or the 3.75 size figures?

1/13th scale, or roughly 5.5 inches, same as all the other "classic era" figures so far released.

Sincerely,

Bill

Yep. Classic figures will remain 5 inches. The new wave of Doctor Who figures (11th Doctor and Clara etc) are all 3.75 inches.
