Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Alister Dewer hinted that even that may be "open ended", suggesting if Underground Toys and/or Forbidden Planet want to commission a 5.5 inch Matt Smith with the long purple coat or Clara in the same scale, it might be considered.

But the "regular" toys sold in the "high street" stores which depict characters during the Clara reign onwards will be in the newer 1/18th scale.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Actually a 3.75 inch Clara against a 5 inch doctor would be in perfect scale since Jenna's shorter than Matt.

I had some fun with my figures

those 'playsets' look an awful lot like 1 figure and a shitload of cardboard.

Pretty much. These new playsets are literally just a bunch of card stock with a plastic base.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I'm disappointed that the figures are literally scaled down versions of the old ones. I was hoping for new/improved articulation (ball joint head, elbows etc) but they still have all the same old swivel joints.

The base of the TARDIS looks way too big as well.

Those sets are probably OK for displays but I can't imagine they'd hold up to much actual playing.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Yeah, pretty much for display unless kids are really gentle with their toys these days.

And as a collector that display selected figures on a shelf, I'm strictly in the 5" scale. All I'm hoping is that UT/FP commission some exclusives for the new series in the 5" scale. From what I gather, they can if they want. And I'd like Clara, the 11th Doctor in his new outfit and the new Cybermen.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

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

Double ditto on this entire post.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Apparently they're doing another wave of the FX Talking Daleks and finally, a Special Weapons Dalek will be available in NA. I could care less about the talking bit but I'm picking one up so I can finally have a SWD. I could have easily got a friend in the UK to send me the Remembrance set but only wanted the SWD and not the others in the set so this is good.

And a new Pyramids of Mars set was announced too.

There's some pictures on Facebook. It's Marcus Scarman, the sarcophagus, and masked Sutekh with glowing eyes (with swappable heads so you can put the mask on the Sutekh from the earlier set, and the jackal head on Marcus). Plus a fold-out pyramid rocket somehow built into the packaging.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

I haven't been able to find out if the "vortex" sticker within the coffin is a simple 2D print or possibly a lenticular effect like those used upon the "title credit" collector cards that came with the 3rd and 4th Doctor sonic screwdrivers. You know, those cards that create either a basic 3D effect or the image changes depending upon the angle you view the sheet.

It's certainly not a "deal breaker' for me, but it would be a neat addition.

Sincerely,

Bill
