Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

And here it is:



The Churchill figure looks pretty good, I think. The 'V' gesture is a nice touch.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I've already got two Ironside Daleks but I'm picking this one up. I've been disappointed with the tweaks, re-releases and lousy QC and haven't picked up anything for quite some time but for some reason, I'm excited about this.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

If that hand pivots like those of most figures in the range, you can have Churchill perform a "rude gesture".

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

New toys listed on big bad toystore. Possible story spoilers





http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...37&mode=retail


Q.L.A. Anti-Time Device
After the Doctor disappeared, the Cybermen and Daleks went to war across the universe. And on each world they destroyed they left in their wake, Stone Angels, picking over the dead and dying. But the Cleric army fought back and scoured the dead worlds left after the wars, looking for the wreckage of Daleks, Cybermen, and broken Angels to create a hugely powerful 'anti-time' device. A device part Dalek, part Cyber technology and used the Quantum signature from the Angel to trigger a Gateway to pull enemies into the time Vortex.... Erasing them from Time completely. This Dalek & Cyberman Hybrid Technology Unit includes four play modes: Dalek, Cyberman, Angel & multi technology. Includes speech, sounds and light FX. Send your enemies into the Time Vortex!


http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...36&mode=retail




Trans-Temporal Sonic Screwdriver
With the TARDIS trapped on Earth in a Trans-temporal schism, the Doctor find himself at the centre of four time zones. As with each previous time the TARDIS generates a new sonic screwdriver for the Doctor but this time it is created in the style of each time zone, Elizabethan, Victorian, Present Day and Future London. With additional features including a 'wood' setting, the Doctor must try and free the TARDIS before time runs out. Replica sonic screwdriver with 8 new sound effects. Also compatible with your Personalise Your Own Sonic Screwdriver Set so you can mix and match the pieces in different ways to create your own version.

That's not the sonic screwdriver I want.

THIS is the one I want!

That's one ugly sonic screwdriver. Just the picture of that gun is a bit of a spoiler LOL.

Rory!

The likeness isn't exactly their best, but it's good enough, IMO.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

There's a BBC Shop exclusive variant that looks even better to me, grey shirt, black vest. But yeah, it's about bloody time the Rory figure was released. And I think the likeness is far better than with the River Song figures.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Funny, to read some of the reactions upon the WhoNA store forums, you'd think Character Options packaged some rubber dog poo and labeled it as Rory. Me? I think they caught the "deer caught in the headlights" stare pretty well.

Sincerely,

Bill

Nah, that was Sil from Vengeance on Varos

I think it's a very good likeness, actually. Maybe, a tad too butch looking and the hair could stand to be more ginger, but, the likeness is pretty right on, IMHO.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Besides, many times to figure looks better in your possession under natural lighting than the promo shots. I remember the uproar made when the first shots of the Hartnell figure were released. "That looks more like my great Aunt Sylvia than ol' Billy!" That sort of thing. It got UGLY with a capital "UGH!" But when it actually became available, most of the complainers were placated. "Hey, you know, it doesn't look half bad. It actually looks like Hartnell!"

So, I'm not fretting. It's just funny to read some of the drama queen performances. I rarely post there any more. I just keep track of any "news" since Who North America is where I purchase my items.

Sincerely,

Bill

Yeah, that comparison was tossed around the WhoNA forums as well.

Which why I absolutely refused to get the Sil & Peri combo (I wasn't going to pay essentially $20 USD--plus a few extra bucks for shipping & handling--for a rubber dog poo figure).
