The 8th doctor looks nothing like McGann which is surprising because the Character Options figures have all been spot on with the likenesses of the doctors.
The face could probably be a little thinner, but I think it looks enough like him.

^ I got the impression from the linked article that that 8th Doc figure wasn't the final-final sculpt, unless I read wrong. Since there's no release for that one yet, might there be some additional tweaks? Anyway, it wasn't the best angle, so maybe it looks better than it appears.

Now these look awsome, I have the regen figures, but these look so much better features wise.

I love the way that the suit is big on Smith, theyve really captured it. And smith in the tweed jacket and outfit is worth it, infact i may like taht batter than my Tennant in coat figure.


Ill still be getting an Eighth figure though. Hopefully itll look a little better in its full run.

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

Well, Mike's Comics received their shipment of the Seventh Doctor/Imperial Dalek today so mine will be it's way soon enough. I'm rather happy. But I must say I absolutely HATE the fact that the McCoy figure only has one head and CO chose the big manic grin.

Fortunately Seventh Doctor that will come with the Classic Tardis in a couple months will have the swappable heads like the Fourth Doctor did. I really think that the figures should all have neutral expressions unless it's a swappable head figure.

Yeah, I don't like the grin either. Thankfully, I don't care too much about the Dalek.

A lack of news about the Eighth Doctor's release makes me still concerned that it might only be available as an exclusive in the 11 Doctors set...

^ They wouldn't dare!! Anyway, all the other Doctors are available singly, so I don't see why this one would be any different.

To get a lot of people to buy the 11 Doctors set because it would be the only way to get all of the Doctors. Yeah, I think they would dare.

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

Rather than create a new thread


TARDIS arrived today





The Smith brothers(AKA Crash set) will be arriving later.

Trying to print off a picture of the St John's Ambulance logo but my printer printed the logo a little too big. It's about the size of a blue panel.

And when I shrunk the image it got blurry.

Thanks. That basically how my first print came out. So I printed a bigger version and applied it with tape.



A bit rough but okay

you can find it on ebay "Flight control TARDIS"

I bought mine on ebay for 33 dollars.That includes shipping

That's low compared to the 60 dollar range on ebay. I was surprised at how huge the TARDIS was.

They're also making a fourth doctor and TARDIS and soon Eleventh Doctor's TARDIS

I wonder whether we'll ever get a First Doctor TARDIS? It's unlikely that we'll ever get an Eighth Doctor TARDIS.

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

Apparently, they are making the 11th Doctor's console room. Don't know if I'll pick one up but hopefully they do a better job than they did with 9 and 10's Tardis and include the walls. Like I've said before, cardboard is cheap.

What I really, really want is an Ironside Dalek. Army green with a Union Jack. Wouldn't surprise me if that's the biggest seller for the Series 5 figures.
