Oops! Never mind! I discovered the image above is a link to DoctorWhoToys.net and the description states, "Sarcophagus with Lenticular Insert" so I have my answer. Yay!

Sincerely,

Bill

The figures do look like they're going backwards in terms of articulation.

What happened to the series 6 type of figure( like the one I have posted up above)?

Also the doctor figure doesn't look good as this prototype/Asylum of the Daleks doctor

Hmm...I got the total opposite reaction. I think the new Doctor figure in the purple coat looks much better than this prototype one above in his old outfit.

As far as the playsets being mostly (if not entirely) cardboard, I don't mind because they appear to be more dioramas solely for display purposes than something meant for very rough play. Overall, I like what I'm seeing with the 3.75-inch line as it seems to still be landing somewhere between collectibles and actual toys, IMO.

Yeah, compared to my Eleventh Doctor figure, that is absolutely horrendous. The eyes...

Looks like Clara was eating a bit too much before heading out with Keannu Reeves as the Doctor.

Too me, they look pretty cool. My interest in Doctor Who toys have been kind of waning until now...

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I havnt bought a doctor who figure for a couple of years now, since standard Eleven and Eleven with mop and fez I think. But I didnt see the point of having the same doctors with just slight differences. And I was hoping to get a 5" doctor with long coat to match my other figures. =(


When i saw the news on character website, i was disapointed. But can see their point of producing cheaper versions, but I was hoping, really hoping that we would get a 5" doctor with long coat. Shame.


Also, because of the lower scale, detail kinda sucks. Elevens eyes?

Not a fan of the new 3.75". Need to see one in the flesh, as it were.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I find the new 3.75" figures horrid. The likenesses are no better than the Kenner Star Wars toys I had as a kid 30 years ago. And to each their own but I really don't get the folks on various DW boards singing the praises of the new scale Doctor and Clara. I can only hope, as some other 5" scale collectors do, that UT/FP will commission some exclusives of the 11th in his new attire and Clara.

This year's SDCC Exclusive has been revealed: it's Ace!



She comes with a bazooka, baseball bat, Nitro-9 container, and removable backpack.

I know these SDCC figures go for a lot online afterwards, but this one I will definitely pick up.

AWESOME.

I looked this up and apparently he also comes with an alternate head, that of the 8th Doctor. I find that odd though, considering he never actually wore that outfit when he was the 8th Doctor. Anyway, I'm sure the the custom builders will be happy to have an official short-haired McGann head to work with.

ETA: Oh, and speaking of Hurt Doctor related toys, they're making his sonic.
