Why couldn't they just make an actual 8th Doctor from "The Night of the Doctor"? That would be awesome and would probably compel me to come out of my figure-buying retirement.

ETA: Oh, and speaking of Hurt Doctor related toys, they're making his sonic.
I wonder if there will be a Character Building mini-figure. There was this recreation of the final scene of "The Day of The Doctor" on Twitter, though what subbed in for Hurt's Doctor is a bit amusing.

And that could come with a young Hurt head into the bargain!

Who North America currently "thinks" it should arrive sometime in February.

Well, it's bringing me out of retirement. Or semi-retirement actually since I just picked up the Ace figure. I agree the 8th from "The Night of the Doctor" would be sweet (and the swappable head does nothing for me) but the Hurt Doctor is worth getting.

i love how his sonic is the body of the old style, with a light up emitter like the new ones.

It's funny that the packaging refers to Hurt's character as "The Other Doctor" rather than "The War Doctor".

Probably because "the War Doctor" is a fairly recently coined term.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Ooo, I found this cool set featuring the 8th Doctor and Dalek. I think I may get this! (There are also Dalek sets with each of the other Doctors too.)

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Big Chief's 12 inch collectible dolls of Tom Baker and David Tennant are reaching their customers this week. My Baker arrived yesterday. The pre-order and payment procedures have awkward and a bit "trying" for some, but once the makers received their initial stock, they've been shipping them via FedEx international.

So far they've released a Matt Smith, an Amy Pond, and now the afore mentioned Tennant and Baker. Next on BC's agenda is William Hartnell. While I'd love to get every one released, the prices are comparable with those of SideShow. I opted to get my "personal first" and favorite regeneration, Tom.

Sincerely,

Bill

Yup, I got my Tennant figure yesterday and think it looks freakin fantastic. The quality of the sculpt and costume appears even higher than that of the Smith figure, and in fact it even looks better than some of my Hot Toys figs.

Supposedly they're also working on a Hartnell figure, which I really can't wait to see.
