Walgreen's. Doctor Who. Jesus.

There are no less than five Walgreen's within a fifteen-minute drive of my house. The idea I could go to one of them and pick up Doctor Who figures...

I'm not enthralled with the 3.75" people ... but the Daleks look pretty nifty. I'll have to pick some of them up. I'll be looking for that Genesis Dalek for sure!

Time of the Doctor set, maybe this means hope for a proper 5 inch Capaldi?
Cool, it even includes Handles!

I guess the spaceships once produced are out of production now...

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Yeah, they had a 'micro machines' thing going for a while, with stuff such as the Slitheen and Captain Jack's ship but those probably did not sell that well. There is some Dalek stuff available, such as the Character Building Dalek saucer and the hovercraft seen in Day of The Doctor and Time Of The Doctor, but the only ship that's really available everywhere and in evey form is, of course, the TARDIS in many, many types of merchandise. (Although you can also get the Master's TARDIS in it's computer, Melkur and Grandfather clock forms).

Awesome. I was never as big a fan of that costume, but the figure still looks so much better than the awful 3.75 version that I might have to get it anyway.

The Capaldi head still has that eyebrow raised for some reason.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

^Yeah I just want to customize it so the brow is normal. It's sort of annoying that the toy companies just rolled with that look




I'm sure future 12th doctor figures will look more accurate to Capaldi.

It happened with 9,10 and 11

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

Yeah, I remember the original Doctor and Rose figures were unarticulated and had sort of crappy paint apps (Such as Rose's eyes).

I think that's part of the reason that we only got one other Rose figure (In her season 2 New Earth outfit and shorter hair)-Piper was not too thrilled with her likeness.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

We're finally getting a 5" Jenna Coleman figure, but it's not a proper Clara figure, unfortunately. And you're forced to buy a 2-pack to get her.

The Impossible Set will feature the 11th Doctor as seen in "The Snowmen", and Oswin Oswald from "Asylum of The Daleks".



I really want a 5" Clara figure, but I'm really not interested in this at all. Hopefully, given Character's fondness for reusing head sculpts for variants, a "real" Clara figure will come out at some point.

Re: Doctor Who: The Figure Thread

My first Dalek figure.





As luck would have it I was looking at one of my earbuds and thought it would make a nice custom dalek plunger.


Well the dalek fell down the stairs and it broke it's plastic plunger


UPGRADE! UPGRADE!!






Voila. Super glued the ear bud to replace the plunger




Now he'll be able to exterminate and cancel all the noise out

It may not be the real Clara, but it was definitely one of Coleman's more memorable costumes, so I'll probably get it just for that reason.
