“I love humans. Always seeing patterns in things that aren’t there.”

The Eighth Doctor was an effortlessly charming, romantic figure. He was unguarded about his background and equally candid about what the future held for people he came into contact with.

8th-doctor-3750

Includes..

  • Sonic Screwdriver Accessory
  • Karn Chalice Accessory (Cup O’ Karn)
  • Cass’s Bandolier Accessory (removable)

It seems ironic that so much about this open Doctor remains a closed book…His first adventure took place in San Francisco at the turn of the Millennium with Dr Grace Holloway and Chang Lee in an epic battle with the Master.

8th-doctor-box7501

Much later, after many adventures with many companions, the 8th Doctors fate is finally sealed during the Time War, as he attempts to rescue a pilot, Cass, whose ship was crashing into the planet Karn.

When Cass realized that the Doctor was a Time Lord and her enemy, she refused his help and allowed the ship crash.

    Still no dispatch from forbidden planet but I’m just asking the 8th doctor is still on my order list so does that mean it will still be dispatched or not

      if this 8th doctor was one off run then technically once the last on came of the production line it was discontinued

      i think that its some sort of default text being sent out when it goes out of stock

      what this boils down to is how much stock they have left at their central depot and how they distribute it

      Yeah, it seems particularly perverse that on the few occasions they’ve had them in stock online, two have been on a Sunday morning and a third was on Black Friday (at which point their persistently shonky website fell over).

    “The 8th Doctor has now arrived in to stock however due to Black Friday and an extremely high amount of orders received, it is unlikely this will be despatched before next week. A confirmation email will be sent to you at that point. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.”

    Up to another week to wait!

    My parcel containing the 8th Doctor (and a couple of other things) was delivered yesterday, but it was my graduation so there was no one in, just went to the depot today to pick it up and whilst I was out (at 3pm no less), a parcel from Royal Mail came for my mum, so she now has to wait until tomorrow at least for her parcel.

    The Eight Doctor figure is very nice. It’s nice to see some form of the Eight Doc whilst Eaglemoss one still hasn’t turned up yet. It’s the first of these Collector figures I’ve bought that doesn’t have any purple on it, (having gotten purple shirt Twelfth and purple dress Missy)

Such a great figure. strong and well made. not 1 paint splash. the sonic is amazing too much better design. the chalice is good but the strap is a bit wonky anyway its fantastic. looks perfect next to 12th Doctor. panick over. no more to wait for…. now looking forward to next year. p.s. children of revolution set is fantastic too

      that’s right, they said all 3 were dispatched with dalek patrol ship and dalek revolution 2 set, and only the patrol ship was in parcel.

      so you ordered 3 8th doctor figures the dalek patrol set and dalek revolution set and they missed 4 things out of the parcel. was they on the invoice? had the box been tampered with?

    So last night I asked FP about my order for the 8th figure and this is the response I got

    “The Eighth Doctor is expected imminently. As soon as we receive stock, your order will be processed and despatched as quickly as possible and a confirmation email will be sent to you at that point. Please be advised that we have removed this from the website as we are not taking any new orders. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.”
    So here’s hoping he comes soon 🙂

      It already states on their site that it is their exclusive….however, they also say that on the 12th Doctor figures and all of them were available at FP.

      I hate dealing with both of these retailers because I live no where near any of them and have to reply on their website info…which is not good.

      Response from FP Customer Services:

      “We are still expecting our stock of the Eighth Doctor which is due anytime. As soon as this arrives we will process and despatch. This is an exclusive with Toys R Us.”

      From the last sentence, this confirms that this is a joint exclusivity deal between TRU and FP. It just seems TRU have had their delivery of stock before FP.

      Although this is a relief…I wont get too excited until I have it in hand.

      Million dollar question. I emailed them last week and they said by end of month. As there is now onlt 1 business day left in the month I emailed them again asking if they are definitely getting this item in stock. I will post their reply when they respond…I am worried those of us who played it safe and ordered with FP are going to lose out.

    Now THIS is the 8th Doctor figure I’ve been waiting for! Stumbled across this earlier today and quickly found one reasonably priced on eBay. Glad the bandolier is removable, since it was young WarDoc that put that on, not Eight. Still, nice accessory along with the sonic and chalice.

I contacted the bank and they said it was their problem, and I know there has been problems with Toys R Us and orders being taken but not getting sent out or something, is this something similar??
