Doctor Who B&M Exclusive 2019 8th Doctor / Dalek Set

Character Options presents a set of three unique Doctor & Dalek Twin Packs, inspired by the Doctor Who audio series from Big Finish.

This includes a brand new take on the Eighth Doctor, plus the Dalek Interrogator Prime. The two additional Doctor and Daleks sets to be released from this range will feature the Seventh and War Doctors respectively.

There will be a second and much more limited version of each set with slight variations and exclusive to Big Finish. These will arrive shortly after the B&M stock and there will only be 150 of each.

Images shown here are of the mass market B&M Sets. The will be 1000’s of these available in stores

Both the B&M set and the Big Finish sets are marked as Limited Editions.

Following the announcement earlier in June of this summer’s Big Finish-inspired Doctor Who merchandise from Character Options, a first preview image has been made available as a taste of what is to come.

The image released is that of the Eighth Doctor and Dalek set featuring a new version of the Doctor action figure in his ‘Dark Eyes’ inspired costume, along with Interrogator Dalek.

Steve Berry, Head of Marketing at Big Finish said: “We are delighted to be working with Character Options on this project and cannot wait to see the items in store. Since the news broke that the sets will soon be available, we have been inundated with requests for an image. We hope that this small taste will add to the excitement of the Character Options online reveal taking place in July.”

The new Big Finish items will be all part of a wider line-up of Character Options Doctor Who figures and accessories coming to B&M retail stores this summer.

Al Dewar, Creative Director at Character Options commented: “As you can imagine we’ve been keeping this inventive collaboration under wraps for a while so it’s fantastic to be able to release this first image of these unique additional sets to the B&M store range. As announced previously we plan to do a full unveiling live, which will take place ‘unboxing style’ on Character Options’ own You Tube channel in July; details of the time and date will be announced soon.”

    Any idea when all these new figures will be in the b&m shops?
    Is there an expected date for general release?

      they are “staggered” this year, possibly very end of July/Begging of August then through to September, i think one of the Tardis sets and one or 2 of the 3 figure sets maybe last to arrive but of course things could change.

    They should’ve done a poll to re release sets , so people could choose what was going to come from this. I actually wanted a tenth doctor in brown suit with a dark blue shirt, or the twelfth doctor with a red hoodie like from smile I think the episode was called?

      they did, they asked people on various forums apparently inducing GB what they would like to see in these sets.

    Yawn.
    I guess the market isn’t actually big enough to warrant something NEW.
    Sick of them retreading the boards with different paint jobs.
    Don’t anyone give me guff about it’s a “new McGann mold” (IF it is?), it’s still ANOTHER McGann, not a new figure.

    Why not resurrect the Classic TARDIS control room they designed a decade ago?
    How about more classic companions? My Hartnell is missing his Granddaughter SO much!
    Surely a Kroton, a Quark or a servo robot ain’t so hard to do?
    A Lalla Ward wouldn’t go amiss – they could do a nice Season 17 set with 6 different Romana’s in it and a Nimon for good measure….

    Which gives me an idea. I’m off to Pulse and Cocktails to buy parts to make my own Erato…

      Yawn, play a different record, another ill informed pointless comment.

      B&M budgets, no new tooling, no new figures, but then if you actually took any interest in these sets you would know that already.

      Well said booboo, I don’t see any problems with these, they are exactly how the were described from the start. Many daleks would be a repaint, being a variation on colour, and the eighth doctor is different figure from what we’ve had before, so what’s not to like, does exactly what it says on the tin, so to speak. Hopeful a lot more to come.

      Be grateful we are getting any kind of 5” figures! If it wasn’t for B&M there would be nothing! Yes we would all love to see a classic console room or classic companions but it’s not going to happen and I for one are looking forward to this release the packaging alone is stunning!

      I can’t fault B&M at all. They’re giving us fans a consistent Doctor Who range which we haven’t had for quite some time. I’m very pleased and I’m looking forward to the reveal of the new figures in due course! 🙂

    Just had an awful experience at B&M. So I hear my local store won’t be getting the sets until everything is cleared. They’ve got just about 30 revised sets in, on top of the original sets. Great. So anyway, I go in the buy the 11th Doctor set and first of all, there are ‘chavs’ purposely blocking my way, giggling. Anyway, I get to the sets and this old man is getting way to close for comfort, attempting to be interested in what I am. Then, there is only 1 till open with the slowest check out woman I’ve ever seen. Sorry, I know this isn’t that relevant but I’m sick of B&M now. But hey, the set is nice so yay!

      apart from the Tardis set which maybe an issue for stores i don’t believe all this won’t get them until old stock is cleared business.

      ‘Chavs’ will be the deaths of us all, maybe they don’t live in a council house but they must’ve been incredibly obnoxious all the same. I don’t envy you mate
