Well, got my sets today. My SN Cybs are fine which is a relief. As for my 11 Doctors set...
The paint jobs on all of them are rather spotty. Actually, the only one with a decent paint job is the 8th. Poor Colin's jacket... the yellow lapel side looks like someone spilt soup on him. It's all bubbly and blech.
The 10th looks kinda cool with the specs but he'd look better it they'd had been centred. And thankfully, I already have a decent 11th Doctor because the legs on this one are horrid.
As for the 8th, I unfortunately got one of the wonky ones. The one leg does indeed sit lower in the socket. I'd heard all you need to do is give it a good push up but that hasn't done the trick. Is that what you did, Demonland?
That's a shame that you got a dodgy set. The only faults in mine were that half of 7s scarf only had no pattern painted on it and McGann's dodgy leg.
I held the top half of the figure in one had whilst push the "longer" leg up. It seems to have done the trick. I was worried about snapping the leg because I was pushing quite hard so be careful.
I'm really sweating the delivery of my SN Cybies. I hope they are battle damage free. That's the problem with having to shop online for figures you don't get to inspect the merchandise to ensure the best available.
That is indeed the problem with having to order online. However, there was an even bigger flaw in a figure in the set my friend got (ordered two, one was for him). The Second Doctor has a massive gap at the waist between the shirt and pants, such that you can see the peg joining the two halves. Pushing it into place is no option because it was an uneven cut. At the back, hidden by the coat where it doesn't matter, it fits but not at the front.
^ Wow, that's just disgraceful.
I pre-ordered Amy & the Ironside Dalek from Mike's some time ago, so I'm looking forward to getting those whenever they ship.
At least you're not like me and Kirby dolls. I probably have twenty or thirty of those little pink bastards.
*Receives two sets. Quickly scans the pair. Notices flaw. Hand that set to friend. "Here, this one's yours"*
Damn right I did. He can't get a credit card, so I order his figures for him and most of the time he tries to pay me via barter instead of cash. In fact, now that I think about it, he still owes me for one so... *shrugs*
Ok, my 11 Set and (FC TARDIS) arrived today. I got 8's long leg, though I was able to pretty much fix it. I also got 11's wonky bow-leggedness, though he can still stand on his own, and unless I'm close up to it it's not that noticeable. I already have an 11 from the crash set, anyway. I also noticed a loose joint on 11, but as long as the arm stays on it doesn't bother me much.
The other nine look ok, no noticeable paint screw-ups or other oddities, though I haven't taken them out yet.
Overall, my set is ok, considering.
I won a "serious" McCoy and the Paul McGann figures on eBay, thus not having to buy the entire Eleven Doctors set. Thus, completing my set of Doctors. FINALLY! Only a dream I've had since I was ten years old (having all the Doctors as "action figures").
Just ordered the 5th Doctor/Master pack, as well as the Davison Regen outfit figure (with the removable scarf). I'll be excited to check those out...
^ I agree. This Doctors set has come over 25 years too late. What I would have given for even one Doctor action figure when I was eight.
God YES! I mean, it was bad enough that the Star Wars rebellion would always have to team-up with G.I.Joe, and the gods who lived in the mountains (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) to try and raid the Death Star against The Empire and their current partners, Cobra (who incidentally were getting help from Skeletor and his black magic). But, if The Doctor had been available? There's no way those baddies could have stopped 'The Oncoming Storm'...
So dang true!
Just got my 11th doctor figure, glad to say its spot on, no defects. Now i need an Amy...
Yeah, I got my Eleven Doctors set yesterday and I was admittedly concerned because I heard numerous horror stories around the 'net about how badly some sets were made (sloppy paint jobs, figures with wrong or missing body parts, etc.). But thankfully, I got a good set without any defects.
One thing that was brought to my attention was that the 11th Doctor in the big set is slightly different than the 11th in the "TARDIS Crash" set (different head sculp--a more angular face).
Still looks like someone took a rusty knife to cut out the top
Got my UC First Doctor/Tardis set a few days back and I love the Tardis. It's my favourite of the three I have (the other two being the Fourth's and Ninth's/Tenth's).
I've got my Amy and two Ironside Daleks, and my Fifth/Master on the way so hopefully they're defect free.
As for the Eleventh Doctor Tardis set... I still kinda want it but it still like it looks like shit. The Ninth/Tenth Tardis set was easy to finish. You just printed out the wall panels floating around the net and there you were.
With this one, with the crazy, jagged cuts, the walls not even reaching the ceiling/top of the time rotor and the exterior doors just being a cardboard print... it still comes across as cheap and lazy.
It looks like some art student's take on a Guggenheim inspired living room.
And they definitely put knee joints in her bare legs, unlike the prototype? I was hoping they'd take a hint from the bare arms of the Rose figure, which didn't have any mid-point joints.
How does the Ironside Dalek look? As cool as the photos?
I had pre-ordered both Amy and an Ironside from Mike's some months ago, so hopefully I'll be getting mine soon too.
