Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

Demonland, whoa! You've been going crazy Down Under, getting all those shipped to you. And you've got all five new Daleks? I didn't even think there'd been an official release for all five. Some of those repaints?

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

The only Tardis I don't have is the Seventh Doctor's. At first I thought I could do without but lately, I've been really missing it on the shelf. Rumour is that at some point, NA will see a re-release since retailers here only received about 20% of what was already committed to advance orders...

One can hope.

Ok, like that. Thought we were onl;y going to get an Imperial Dalek in the white-coated 7th Doctor pair, (which i just couldn't be bothere to buy).

What's left (and interesting), Dalek-wise? The Evil Emperor, obviously, standard issue late 60s Dalek, glass Dalek... anything else?

That's cool, though I think Eight's actual TARDIS is a closer match to the one you have Seven posing with, rather than Nine/Ten's.



And now that I see the Eight figure up close, I'm thinking the likeness could have been a bit closer. Although maybe now that the legal nonsense with the TVM appears to be cleared up, we'll get a new variant with a face that actually looks like McGann. The overall look is great though.

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

Finally picked up my Amy figure from the post office today. Overall, I quite like her, though initially I thought something was lacking in the face. Karen Gillan has a very expressive face, particularly her often-wide-in-amazement-or-fright eyes, while the figure's eyes lack any vibrancy. Also, the paint job on the boots was a bit sloppy near the top, as some of the brown paint strayed onto her legs.

And speaking of legs (yes, I'm going to mention it again), I still wish they'd left off the knee joints. Talk about a case of knobby knees! The detailing on the figure is also quite good, with the jacket and boots stand-outs in that regard. I also thought it was clever how they sort of hid the split at the neck with the painted gold necklace. You really can't tell it's there at all.

Finally, I couldn't not look under her skirt, and the paint job down there makes it look like she's wearing black panties.

Here's a pic I took earlier, with Amy joining the Doctor outside the TARDIS:

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

Sure. They just had to come up with a new Dalek set. Now I sort of have to order it. Damn them.

And Worf, I completely agree about the likeness with the Eighth Doctor being somewhat lacking. I'm hoping for a single release myself. Don't know if they'll but the effort into a re-sculpt of the face but I want one simple because he's the only Doctor that hasn't been released outside of the 11 Doctors set and I've already got all the others. I'd like to put my Eighth back in the set (he's the only one I took out) and have a different one on the display shelf.

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

Your Doctor collection and mine are quite similar.

First Doctor (colour) with Dalek
UC First Doctor (sold)
UC First Doctor with Tardis
First Doctor 11 Doctors set variant

Second Doctor (colour) with Tomb Cyberman
Second Doctor 11 Doctors set variant

Third Doctor with Sea Devil
Third Doctor with Dalek
Third Doctor 11 Doctors set variant

Fourth Doctor x3
Fourth Doctor PoM variant
Fourth Doctor with Tardis
Fourth Doctor 11 Doctor set variant

Fifth Doctor Time Crash variant
Fifth Doctor with hat PoF variant
Fifth Doctor 11 Doctors set variant

Sixth Doctor
Sixth Doctor Real Time Blue variant
Sixth Doctor 11 Doctors set variant

Seventh Doctor with Dalek
Seventh Doctor with Tardis
Seventh Doctor 11 Doctors set variant

Eighth Doctor 11 Doctors set

Ninth Doctor SDCC green jumper
Ninth Doctor 11 Doctors set variant

Tenth Doctor brown trenchcoat
Tenth Doctor Time Crash variant
Tenth Doctor 11 Doctors set variant

Eleventh Doctor Crash set
Eleventh Doctor 11 Doctors set

That's a lot of Doctors. Plus I've got the Ninth/Tenth FC Tardis, the Eleventh FC Tardis (which is just a bloody repaint so I don't know why they were to cheap to include the interior lights...) so that's five versions of the Tardis and the Ninth/Tenth playset.

And then there's my Dalek collection and my classic Cybermen collection and the various monsters from the two classic waves and my various new series figures and... a rough tally means... I've got far too many toys.

The, is it possible we're all just obsessed with recapturing our childhoods? Or are we just geeks?

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

I'd say a little from column A, and little from column B. I'd only be worried if I actually "played" with them, instead of standing them in place like an idol or worship totem.

Personally, I have always lived with the promise I made myself as a child that, one day...even if I had to have them individually created myself....I would have figures or statues of every Doctor. I'm just fulfilling my obligations to that twelve-year-old that demands it.

Also, I love being able to walk into my office, and be able to scan all The Doctors in the console room. Like a 3-d poster, or something...

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

The glass Dalek would be interesting-there's plenty of 'clear' figure variants out there (although none that I'm aware of for Who). Although the disembodied head/Dalek mutant might be difficult for various reasons.


I'm suprised we don't have any Dalek Emperors. We've got plenty of Supremes.

There's three variants of the Emperor seen in the series:

-The big one from Evil of the Daleks. But you'd probably have to do the entire set around him too.

-The small Davros one from Rememberance of the Daleks. Could have a lid that can open to reveal Davros.

-Of course the big new series one. Anyone know how well the deluxe figures of the Reaper/Face of Boe/Racnoss have sold? This would have to be even larger possibly.

I also don't think there's a Revelation of the Daleks Dalek out there either (They look the same color as the Imperials but are different cosmetically). Maybe a future box set, with Terry Molloy style Davros, the Davros 'great healer' head, that Dalek and the glass Dalek is possible.

I've seen a close-up shot of the prototype 8th Doc figure, and it looks more like McGann than the final thing.

But you know, if they came out with an "8th Doctor with TARDIS" set like some of the other classic Docs have gotten, I'd consider getting that.

Re: New figures for 2010 including a look at 11th Doctor

I had a look at the 11 Doctors set in a local Smyths store, and to be honest, i loved the set apart from Eight. Just doesnt, well, have the same attention to detail as the others do.

I too, was disapointed.


Oh, and i picked up an Amy from our debenhams aswel, it was on the xmas gift stand in a doctor who section, 25% off. Not bad.
