5.5″ B&M 2018 The 12th Doctor Collectors Set

Advanced information thanks to B&M, Due late summer

Three sets with 3 completely unique paint variants in each set. Every single figure is exclusive and has never been available before.

12th Doctor Set

  • Missy as seen in the Series 10 Episode Extremis
  • The 12th Doctor as seen in the Series 9 Episode Face the Raven
  • Bill as seen in the Series 10 Episode The Pilot


Series 10 Episode 1 The Pilot

Two worlds collide when the Doctor meets Bill.

A chance encounter with a girl with a star in her eye leads to a terrifying chase across time and space.

Bill’s mind is opened to a Universe that is bigger and more exciting than she could possibly have imagined – but who is the Doctor, and what is his secret mission with Nardole on Earth?

The Doctor is played by Peter Capaldi, Bill by Pearl Mackie and Nardole by Matt Lucas.

    I hope they’re still releasing the Bill figure from Smile. That outfit for Bill just matched Bill’s vibrant and lively personality.

    Hope this is just a prototype. The 12th Doctor figure needs a waste coat and the shade of red on the coat needs to be slightly darker.

      I agree on the figure needing a waistcoat. I find it odd that CO have given the Talons of Weng-Chiang new tooling for the collar/waistcoat piece even though their approach with these sets have always been to release repaints or slight variants with no tooling.

    • booboo

      May 14th, 2018 - 5:53pm

      of course the tooling may already have been done for a previous unreleased exclusive UT set

      This is the Fourth Doctor variant I’m referring too.

      Booboo was also referring to this variant.

    Now all we need to wait for is the packaging.
    I presume these sets will be the first look we get at it?

      Same. I thought it would have been a really obvious variant to make. I was actually kind of sad when one didn’t appear in any of the new sets.

    Wow these are amazing. Love that Bill and Missy figure. A bit disappointed by 12 but all K need now is a Nardole figure.

    Wow! These look great! Nice small range! As these are not yet in production, do you think theres a chance they will add the waistcoat?

      May 14th, 2018 - 4:10pm

      dont think so, its not just about tooling but paint masks and set protection lines, any alterations cost money and would probably make their inclusion non-viable

    I know we should nitpick about new sculpts, but… Bill’s shoes…..could be this fixed in the final product? I doubt they’d retool Missy’s hair

    I’ll be absolutely in love with this set IF they could make Missy’s hair bigger; make it properly Series 10 where its really grown too much. I know they don’t do retooling but is a small thing like that possible?

      I was thinking that too – seems odd to have a single Bill figure for £15 when you could get the same figure but with different colour paint on plus 2 more figures for just £2 extra!

    • booboo

      May 14th, 2018 - 4:03pm

      its probably only the “normal priced Bill” that has allowed its inclusion in this set to be honest

    • TheAgeOfUltron

      May 14th, 2018 - 3:57pm

      I think this one has a slightly different coloured shirt to the one on Amazon as Bill never wore that shirt and the one Pearl Mackie showed was more accurate so I think this is a variant.

      I believe this costume is from her first scenes in The Pilot, but still seems unusual to have two variants at such different price points

      £16.99 last year, all stores usually get them but they don’t well online

      You never know, it could change between here and production. Probably not but, if not, I’ll just stick the Time of the Doctor head on it as a homage to the unreleased prototype 3.75 Red Jacket 12.

    WOW! This set looks really cool. Missy looks alright and seems to be a decent repaint, Twelve is a bit disappointing but finally, we are getting Bill and we aren’t gonna have to wait til October. Can’t wait to see the other sets, but this one is fab.
