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.)
I've never liked their prices. It's cheaper for me to get my figures from the US or from friends in the UK. I've got that set, and the FX Special Weapons Dalek coming from Mike's Comics, with shipping, for $80.

Thats a different look for 8... interesting.. Too pricy for me but nice to see.
That is a nice repaint. I always thought that the Eighth Doctor's costume kind of evolved over time (or at least, he didn't always have the exact same one he started out with).

I bought the set. It's really nice, particularly Dalek Alpha.

Now if only they'd do a Night of the Doctor McGann.

The eighth Doctor switched to a blue coat in the DWM comics. For the first half of the eighth Doctor comic strips it didn't matter because they were printed in black and white. But when they switched to full-color comic strips with DWM #300, they found that trying to replicate the green velvet look didn't work. Blue was easier.

"Children of the Revolution" is interesting. It's a sequel to "Evil of the Daleks"; we find out what happened to the humanized Daleks. Altered Vistas did an animated adaptation of the story about a decade ago.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Just found the larger scale 10th Doctor at ToyR'Us. I didn't even know these existed/were going to exist. Same packaging/scale as the current Ace figure. Can anyone tell me more about this line??

OKay, I'm a total ponce who was suckered in by the new packaging, but I swear this version has a better head sculpt. More Tennanty!

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

So i'm looking for a Cybermen figure or Dalek figure for 5 inch figure fun

Since the main line won't do 5 inch anymore does anyone suggest

"A Good Man goes to War cyberman?"

Or Eccleston/Tennant Dalek?

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

If you're in the U.S., I'd recommend Who North America. Actually, I think Keith and Jany will ship to other countries; just be prepared for the extra cost.

Here's a direct link to every 5.5 inch (1/13th scale) figure they currently have in stock.

http://www.whona.com/mm5/merchant.mv...ry_Code=cotoys

Ironically, it appears 1980s Cybermen are the ones most in stock. The only Tennant era Cybie avilable is the "battle damaged" SDCC exclusive, a figure with a leg and an arm "blasted" to shreds. I would have uggested the recently re-released "Doomsday" set that had a 10th Doc', Dalek Sec with his black casing and a Cybus Industries Cyberman, but it sold out a few days ago.

But keep a close watch as they do get restocks on occasion. And visit the site's forums. There's a section for personal sales and trades. You might request a Tennant era Cyberman there.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

The main reason I was gunning for a "good man goes to war" cybermen was because it had the newer more improved articulation with ball jointed arms

Thanks for the alternate suggestions!

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Oh, I wasn't aware of that! Obviously, you're better versed on the figures than I am. I've been buying them since Character Options released the initial "Dalek Battle Pack", but I'm still learning things.

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread






one of the comments I saw

"Uh, why does the Clara figurine have MOFFAT'S FACE?"



The description read - "New for 2014! Unveiled at Toy Fair in London today, meet the new 3.75" scale figures from Character Options - including the Twelfth Doctor regeneration figure ("Kidneys!")."

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

That Capaldi figure actually looks pretty decent in that pic. Of course in person I'm sure the final production figure will look as cheap and atrocious as all the rest, with no detail and badly painted eyes.

Looks like if any of us want a 5" Capaldi, we'll have to resort to making it custom.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

^Seriously what the heck happened that we got Nicholas cage as the 11th doctor in 3.75 inches?

Also when did the eleventh doctor in tweed ever wear a waist coat?

Big mistake




The prototype 11th doctor 3.75 looked great!








The final product? Not so much

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Wait - why does the figure of Twelve have that cocked eyebrow? Is that a Capaldi thing? I don't see him do that in any pictures of him I've seen.
