    This. I'd have bought it immediately if it came with an Idris figure.

    I just got my 10 and Martha. Sadly, as it was an ebay pickup, I didnt get the sonic screwdriver with em. Oh well. Still stands tall in my display!

    Better to never get the sonic then to lose it. A friend of mine has lost several of his. All these empty handed Doctors on his shelf...

    Played around with some pictures again...

    ^ Nice! The first one of Davros is eerie. Who's the guy on the left in the bottom picture?

    Thanks. :) Was doing some doing some test shots with different lighting and an ancient Fuji camera for a webcomic with the Eighth Doctor, Davros and the start of the TimeWar... da da duuuunnnn...

    The other figure is from the Primeval series. Those are also made by CO and in the same scale as the DW figures.

    Just checked Mike's Comics and the new Delgado set is expected next week. The Junk Tardis is apparently expected in August. So, with my recreation budget not taking multiple hits in one month, I may go ahead and get the Junk Tardis after all.

    I saw one of these in Winnipeg the other day! Very expensive though.

    Thanks. And welcome to the forums. Winnipeg, eh? I'm impressed they have any DW merchandise at all there. ;)

    Cool pics! I have that TARDIS money bank as well, though I recently stuck a St. John Ambulance badge on the door to give it a "current" feel. (None of the F.C. TARDISes for Eleven have impressed me enough to buy one; if only they'd make one with all the bells and whistles of Ten's!)

    Didn't used to until a year or two back, and now only in specialty stores. Luckily, there is one right by my house XD

    Well this year's DW SDCC figure has been annouced... wait for it...

    A new River Song figure and... the Pandorica chair. La de fucking da.

    It's no wonder most adult collectors are loosing interest in the line. I'd rather just have a single River figure instead of having to buy it in a set with a chair that the figures can't even sit in.

    Ok, I don't really care for the chair (whoopidy do), but it's nice to finally have a real River figure ... I mean, a body besides the head.

    The figure doesn't look that great IMO.

    The figure is horrible. The body is alright but the face sculpt looks nothing like Alex Kingston and the hair piece is way off. Horribly done. If DWW did that sculpt, they should be ashamed.

    What's funny is all the kiddies at GB saying "OMG it's teh awesomest likeness evah!" I simply don't see how they can be looking at the same picture. Mind you, it's the same mindset that votes every single episode 10 out of 10.

    Yep.

    I disagree. While it's certainly not the best likeness, I definitely saw some Kingston in the face.

    Definitely. When I first looked at the picture the poor hair piece was the first thing I noticed.

    Agreed. :thumbdown:

    I really wanted a River figure (without the enviro suit), but even if I was willing to get her as part of a set like that I wouldn't get this one. I really hope they release a single with a better looking head.

    Yeah, those pics just reinforce that I am NOT getting this. Looks nothing like Alex Kingston and the hair is horrible.
