    One of two that's coming apparently. The other being Linx from the Third Doctor's Time Warrior serial.

    It looks very nice. It's a shame they had to stick the Fourth Doctor in it though. For me, I'd rather have it cheaper in price since I already have three different versions of the the Fourth. (And three variants of the Third as well).

    Also, it would have been nice if they could have put more into the pod, a view screen, console, etc.

    The Sontaran looks pretty good to me, but that Tom Baker head looks pretty morose. Looks like he's about to cry.

    Is the 4th Doctor just a mish mash of the existing 4th Doctor figures?

    Yep. Which is why I wish they were releasing the Sontarans on their own, without the Third and Fourth Doctors. I already have several versions of both.

    If I recall correctly, Tom didn't really wear the hat in that story.

    Well, my Peri and Sil set arrived yesterday.

    A couple quick pics, with the insert background from the packaging:

    While Peri is very well done, Sil is basically a giant piece of poo. Peri stands surprisingly well considering the high heels and the likeness is quite good (but CO is usually spot on with that regard). Sil is... disappointing. While he's not attached to the stand, there's no articulation. The head doesn't turn, the arms don't move, nothing, zip, zilch, nadda.

    Rather a shame. I'd have preferred $15-20 for a single carded Peri. It's not that I dislike Sil (and I have tremendous respect for Nabil Shaban) but the figure is disappointing. And what makes it even more poo is... when you lift the figure off of the stand a) the centre is caved in like he's a heavy turd and b) whether it was the paint or who knows what, there is, quite literally, a brown stain where the figure sits.

    I'm a big fan of the Dr. Who figures, I feel that Character Options can EASILY give North American companies like Hasbro, Mattel and ESPECIALLY Playmates a run for their money.

    I feel Peri was choose as the first classics companion to be a figure because figures like Sarah and Jo would EASILY sell a lot, and they wanted to be sure other, lesser known companions would sell good too, so Character Options were testing the waters.

    I myself end to get the figures second hand, since I do NOT want to spend $30 or more on a figure.

    If any one has classic Daleks (mainly 60's and 70's Daleks), Revenge & Tomb Cybermen, Peri, and the first three Doctors to sell or trade, please let me know. :)

    I can see Sarah selling well, but why do you think Useless would sell? I'd think she would rate right up there with figures of Sara Kingdom and Dodo.

    Dunno, she was fairly popular (a lot more than her successor) in the series....not to mention one of the nicest looking ones (Nicola Bryant pretty much looks the same today as she did in 1984), it's a no brainer she'd probably sell good.....I mean Amy sold well, and I am sure a large number of male collectors bought her for pretty much the same reasons. I could see the Kiss-O-gram Amy selling just as good.

    Now Mel and Adric, those figures might not be popular ones. :vulcan:
