5.5″ B&M 2019 4th Doctor & TARDIS Set

Product code 337412

Please contact www.bmstores.co.uk if you require more information. Click Here to find your nearest B&M store. Please check stock levels before traveling.


This Interim set Regenerated 4th Doctor in 3rd doctors outfit with the 4th Doctor head from the ‘time capsule’ set but with new revised decoration.

Exclusive to B&M this second Tardis set features the Regenerated 4th Doctor from Robot and a 4th Doctor’s Tardis.

This comes in the new “Classic” style guide packaging now used on most new pre-13th Doctor items.

There is a printed background card in the box of the Unit lab with a bookcase and wall with various 3rd / 4th doctor related items pinned to a board, The floor is even a different colour where the Tardis stands.

The regeneration figure was previously only available (in the UK) in the 50th anniversary time capsule set but this is a slight variant with updated decoration including whitish lining around the lapels.

The Tardis has a different shade of Blue, updated door panel and a white background on the signage above the doors. The doors open as per previous versions.

Looking at our Tardis Landings Page the white background appears in several outdoor shots including Terror of the Zygons and the Andriod invasion (which also looks closest with the lamp).

The original and now highly sought after 4th Doctors Tardis is on the left and new variant on the right. Some “weathering” has been applied to the signage, lamp top and windows to make it more screen accurate! Figure aside, The Tardis is sufficiently different to make this another must have set.

    I’m a stickler for accuracy, and have always considered the 5 inch figures as models. The recent 3rd TARDIS and coming 4th TARDIS are missing key accuracy points. So I will buy multiples and adjust accordingly. I have done measurements and printed out 3D bases for them, as the correct bases are a lot thinner than is being produced. I aim to turn the 4th Box into a White lamped Newbery as it was in Mandragora – Creature and a Police Siren lamped Newbery with a black base as it was in Eden-Shada. The correct 3rd Doctor/Early 4th is a different thing entirely and may need to be created from scratch.

    Hot after my Combat Tegan suggestion I bring you all my next idea…………………….

    A 5 Doctors pack. All five Doctor’s as they appeared in The Five doctor’s. A Hurndall 1st, a coated 2nd, a Tartan caped 3rd, a Waxwork 4th, a longer haired 5th.
    I’d even like a Five Doctor’s companion pack. Sarah, Turlough, Tegan, Brigadier, Susan. THIS WOULD BE AMAZING!!!!!!!

    Do we have a store date? Because it’s good to know they’ll be in the main warehouse on the 18th, but when can we expect them in shops?

    • booboo

      February 6th, 2019 - 4:32pm

      its takes a while because they go to regional distribution centers then to stores on certain days and then the stock has to get to the shelves

      rest assured there are bound to be loads of comments as to where they have been seen stock get around

  • Skonnos

    February 5th, 2019 - 7:12pm

    I’m guessing the reason more restocks of the 3 Packs are showing up in stores is because they are clearing the decks at the warehouse in preparation for the new stock arriving? I wonder if the same stores that got the 3rd Dr TARDIS will get the 4th Dr TARDIS. It follows perhaps that any stores that didn’t get stock last year might be the same ones that miss out again

    • booboo

      February 5th, 2019 - 7:30pm

      there is nearly double the stock this time though so gut feeling is the distribution maybe much better, store managers permitting if we believe whats said.

    Being realistic for past series, these are some figures which are potentially achievable for character:
    Repaints:
    Amy- using VOTD sculpt and doing a THE/CB costume variant
    12th Doctor- paint on the waistcoat- character are never gonna make a new sculpt…
    Earthshock / Attack of the Cybermen Cyberleader

    New Head Sculpt:
    Tegan- use Martha LOTTL sculpt and paint green for body, with new head (thanks to whoever came up with this in the first place, I really wish they’d do this)
    Clara- either repaint the purple dress with the checked TNOTD dress (could get away with this, even if inaccurate) OR do an inaccurate UTL/BTF variant with a new series 9 head sculpt where the grey dress is printed on and the sleeves are yellow.

    Completely new figure:
    2013 Cyberman- more likely people will buy in more than one for army building, and they are iconic villains, baffles me as to why character dont invest in doing one.

      Just went to check my two local B and M Home stores in Preston based on the above comment before it was deleted – definetly no stock of either original or repaints yet.

    • Brian Rose

      February 4th, 2019 - 2:38pm

      Disappointed that my comment has been deleted.

      I was in the East Kilbride store in the Queensway Retail Park myself on Saturday and they definitely had the triple pack figures in stock.

      I can’t believe that they’ve sold them all in the space of 24 hours so something’s not right if you phoned up and they said they had no stock.

    • booboo

      February 4th, 2019 - 3:22pm

      Problem is People make special journeys based on comments.

      There is no point in us leaving a comment saying there is loads of stock of the new tweaked packs in East Kilbride when B&M have told me (and others) there isn’t any.

      There are still many old sets floating around

      There is also no stock of the tweaked 3 packs showing on the computer system either and they are still showing as 8th April.

      We can only go by what we are told by B&M. No one has actually seen the tweaked packs yet so pictures if any are found in future would be useful.

      If stock had arrived we would be flooded with comments by now anyway to be honest.

    • booboo

      February 4th, 2019 - 3:49pm

      Just phoned them again and persevered, they have some stock on the shelves but they are NOT the tweaked packs, Clara still has a belt and in the tweaked packs she doesn’t, phoned HQ the tweaked packs have NOT arrived as mick said.

      So our article is correct.

    • Tyler Prescott

      January 28th, 2019 - 5:13pm

      Jamie’s unlikely, as they’d have to make it more-or-less from scratch. If they can use the existing mould for Fur Coat 2, maybe they can make him. A Cyberman would be easy, though. Personally, I’d prefer an Ice Warrior.

      Also, just had a great idea of two classic 3-Packs:

      – The Seventh Doctor (from Remembrance of the Daleks, with umbrella and hat)
      – Mel (From Time and the Rani – we’ve never had a 5.5″ Mel before!)
      – The Master (From Survival – the Ainley Master is as rare as can be!)

      – The Fifth Doctor (From The Visitation, with sonic screwdriver)
      – Nyssa (From Snakedance)
      – The Black Guardian (From Mawdryn Undead)

      I know that these’ll never happen, but it’s good enough to hope…

    • Anon

      January 29th, 2019 - 7:50am

      They have already done an ice warrior and several different cybermen. They’ve also done a zygon. Daleks require bigger packaging so I’m not sure they’d do them.

    What I’m wondering is, if this really is the new ‘classic’ style guide, do CO intended to release more pre- thirteenth doctor products in the near future? Because if they aren’t, I’d be rather surprised, considering they then must have went to the trouble of designing new packaging for B&M sets, of all things.

      All the Tardis are a compromise in some way because it was established long that separate tooling for each one was just way to costly and they would never had got made at all, there is a very good video around from the person who designed them.

      There are episodes where the Tardis looks very similar to this one.

      I’m sure you are never going to get a totally screen accurate Tardis and figure for £20 because additional tooling and alterations would just cost to much.

    • The Outcast

      January 27th, 2019 - 10:54am

      For a 7th Doctor set, they could attempt to do a Post-Regen 7 by sticking the solemn head on a repainted 6th Doctor body, Ace could be repainted to have her black striped shirt from Greatest Show in the Galaxy, and they could re-issue the Silver Nemesis Cyberman, as it is quite rare nowadays. Someone else came up with this idea for a set so it isn’t my idea, just one I like.

      Someone else suggested doing Androzani 5, Sharak Jek and a Earthshock Cyberleader for a set.

      You are right that there isn’t a lot of options for the 60s and 80s in regards to figures. CO really did tend to favour the 70s when it came to figures. IF we ever get more classics, that’s something I’d like to see change.

      In regard to a second doctor set Shane, I always thought that a second doctor ice warrior was possible, just by making the eye lenses green. I could be totally wrong, but I’m pretty sure that I saw that that was the original colour before they were red in the third doctor era.

    • Gek2Win

      January 27th, 2019 - 2:37pm

      I’ve got to say though, the reason we haven’t had many of the sixties monster is because they have two avenues to go with them, namely accuracy or realism. If they wen for accuracy, many would look… less than stellar. If they went for realism, in the vein of the sea devils, they would be probably too scared because they’d be worried about getting flak for it being inaccurate. It’s probably too hard of a decision to make, and regardless, there aren’t many memorable or even good designs from the sixties, be that opinion controversial. I think its this second reason we haven’t had much for the eighties either, being that the time when many say it started to get worse. The seventies, however, are a nice balance between being memorable, well designed, and just good toys. Other than collectors and die hard fans, who would buy a Monoid, or a caveman?

      Maybe B&M could capitalise on the recent Bluray sell outs. Make a S19 pack, with another 5th Doctor and a Cyber leader. IF they cast Janets head could this be attached to a Martha Tochlafane body and painted like the Earthshock jump suit??

      But there are a bunch of good looking 1960’s monsters. The Yeti (which was prototyped), the Quarks, which look good even if they do come from an awful story. The Voord look alright and reappear in a few EU tales. How about the Monk (who isn’t really a monster, but a villian)? On the larger end of things they could even try a War Machine. And there’s the Wheel Cyberman.

      As for the 80s, Terilptils, Haemavores, Tetraps, that cool looking robot from the Mysterious Planet, the Mara (which could be made by repainting a rubber snake), Gravis, the 80s Silurians and Sea Devils, the Two Doctors Sontarans, Cheetah people, and there’s a bunch of villains, the Rani, the Valeyard, Omega and proper versions of the Tremas Master.

    B&m is a chain of discount stores selling items at a reasonable price. To do a range of exclusive figures and sets would be expensive. And that would mean selling them at a higher price which is something that goes against what b&m’s is about.

    “Oh, you’ve redecorated!”…….. “I don’t like it”. I’m really not sure how I feel about this. The police box sign just looks wrong

      Well it would have been if there’d kept the sides and black black and white, and change the front only to the inverted look.

      This is probably the most accurate police box we’ve had so far

    this looks like the best set since the 13 doctors set!

    Looks even better than the 3rd Doctor Tardis, IMHO! In actual fact… the Tardises (Tardi?) appear to be the wrong way round, I would have released this one with the 3rd doctor and the black base version with the 4th… but never the less, I’m so happy we’re getting more figures!

      B&M sets are always repaints

      Character and B&M have always said that their releases will always be repaints or adaptations of older figure parts – that’s the only way to hit the budget price point – and that (at least for now) B&M releases won’t ever include newly sculpted brand new figures. I remember reading that the tooling and billable labour-hours to sculpts new character from the ground up is between £20k and £40k so you can see their point.

      Bill was a new figure.
