    Where has the app for the smartphone operated K-9 gone? We gave him to a young relative when we’d finished playing with him and he can’t find the app now to put on his phone. Also, the phone we have got the original app on now can’t connect to K-9. Any ideas?

    Were Series 1 Volume 1 and Series 1 Volume 2 DVDs released with two different types of cases?
    The two different types of cases are the one at the top and the one forth down in this picture:

    https://recyclenation.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/DVD-recycling.jpg

    (both in a transparent colour)

    It’s just cause I have bought a Volume 1 and Volume 2 off Amazon, from DIFFERENT sellers, and they both look like the top one in that picture? Odd, because I have seen pictures of Vol 1 & 2 having the usual cases like the fourth one down? Is it a fake? Should I reorder???

    Many thanks πŸ™‚

      They had very little of anything, I presume because the experience is closing soon.

      I saw some vinyl figures on display but none for sale.
      I didn’t see any big chief figures but they did have maxi busts.
      They had the Three Doctors set with the Brig and Jo and the Pyramids of Mars set with the Mummys.
      I didn’t get a chance to look for the coats, sorry!

    I was thinking about the unreleased 3.75 Missy and 8th Doctor, and I thought what if the prototype pictures were the 5 inch ones? When I first saw the sculpts, I thought they were 5 inch because they looked a lot more detailed and bigger in general, but when I found out they were 3.75 I couldn’t see how as they were a lot more detailed. Character might’ve said they were 3.75, so that it’d be a surprise when they’re released in 5 inch which is everyone’s favourite scale. If you look at the prototypes, they look just like the 5 inch ones. I think there wasn’t ever going to be a 3.75 Missy or 8th Doctor, and what we saw was 5 inch but we were told it was 3.75 so it would be a surprise

      I think it was, for a time

      The quality of the 1st wave was poor,lets be honest, it got better each wave but the “toy market” was lost, and I think retailers knew that

      Not because of the 3.75″ figures but because the show was no longer the “in thing”.

      I think the timing, the gap year and the fact they cant get merchandise on the shelves whilst the show is actually on air all play a factor.

      Always a problem getting the merchandise out on time. I found the likeness of Clara & 12th Doctor to be poor and the Time Zone sets, nice idea but rather cheap. I do like the Tardiss’ though.

      I thinks its more to do with distribution than selling

      Unfortunately, this item has just been cancelled by the supplier. Regrettably, we are unable to obtain stock from elsewhere, and have no option other than to cancel all orders taken for it

      It doesn’t seem like they had plans to release more anyway. I can’t see this line would have sold very well.

      That is a good point booboo, if this happens then things will never sell well

      The words I want to put down I can’t as this is a Public Forum. I am more than a little annoyed after Pre-Ordering these back in January to find them cancelled. Again, this is entirely due to Funko. After contacting them numerous times over the last few months concerning the release of these Playmobils & getting no response from them, they are obviously not interested in selling their Merchandise to paying customers. I have just taken these off my To Buy List. Their loss not mine!
