Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Nothing recent has really caught my interest. I'd still love to see Eight on his own, or with his TARDIS.

I think we'll see the classic companions coming out slowly, and likely in two-packs like Peri & Sil.

So, Jo Grant next and I'm hoping we get the Brig.
I suspect that the Brig won't be along for a bit. If a figure is a recognisable likeness, it has to be approved by the actor or his heirs, so if Nick hadn't been asked and given his Ok before he died, his family will have to decide who's going to take that on if and when they're asked.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

From what I've been told, that's already been taken care of and the sculpt was made some time ago. I certainly hope that's the case since the Brig is at the top of my list for companions.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I wonder if they'd have the Brig in a UNIT pack with Benton, Yates, and perhaps an 'army builder' generic UNIT guy.


But we'll probably have him packaged with a monster or something. The gargoyle from the Daemons would be cool

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

The rumours I keep hearing are the Brig and Jo Grant released in two-packs with Omega and a Gel Guard. How true that is remains to be seen.

Oh man, I hope it's not a Gel Guard. I really don't need one of those in my house.

Doesn't matter when/if the sculpt was done: unless Nick Courtney was sent a prototype figure and said yes, they can't proceed with it. At least, not until his heirs give their yes.
Understandably, no-one wants to pressure a sick man, or a grieving family, so there can be a delay when the worst events intervene.

Well aware that a sculpt means squat without a release on the likeness. Which is why I said "that's already been taken care of" before I even mentioned the sculpt.

For those who liked the Doctor's makeshift TARDIS in "The Doctor's Wife", you're in luck!

I wonder if the Blue Peter competiton winner will get any money from its sale.

Nice. Also noticed the Series 6 Eleventh Doctor there as well (new sculpt)

Nope. Standard contest entry rules. All entries are property of, in this case, the BBC.

And while the Junk Tardis does look nice, it's a really lacklustre paint job on the console when you take a closer look. They couldn't even be bothered to put a reflective surface on the mirror, which was actually what we saw the most of in the episode, with Idris looking at herself. That, and the lack of an Idris figure with it took it from a "must have" to a "maybe somewhere down the road" for me.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

The Amelia figure doesn't look much like her. Do children get to have their say with regards to likenesses as well, or is that up to their legal guardians? The face is way off for one thing, and her skin isn't pale enough. Maybe that's a prototype?
