    I know I seem dumb, but my friend confused me about this, does shipping mean it’s on its way?

      can mean both really

      “Shipping now” can mean in stock and able to send

      “shipping from the 31st” can mean not in stock but delivery expected by the 31st

      I purchased the figure a couple of weeks ago and on the order details it stated the item should have been arriving today however I was sceptical about that considering these comments and having no email stating it had been dispatched. The 13th Doctor figure won’t be arriving today and will just be somewhere in the next 1 – 4 weeks. No date specified.

    • booboo

      the stock must have arrived though for character to send theirs out, suspect the stock didn’t quite get to the warehouse on time and the 1-4 weeks is default.

      should know today though if people start getting despatch emails

      I live in Australia and pre-ordered from Character. I’ve had two emails and the last yesterday (AUS date 31/7 at 9:45 pm) saying it has shipped. No tracking which is disappointing but I would expect to have it here in 5-7 work days based on shipping cost. So interesting to see if I get it before those on Amazon in the UK. Think now I made the right choice going with the company directly.

      they were a joint venture between Character and what was Underground toys back then, I believe sales in the USA become poor and the UK market wasn’t big enough to carry on, the last sets were sold of very cheaply by FP so clearly they just struggled to sell.

They should have updated us on Friday if there was a delay in dispatch instead of leaving us with no clue as to what’s happening.

    Has anyone received a dispatch email from Character Options? I tried contacting them by email but all the representatives I’ve emailed just had automatic response set up saying they are all on holiday and “out of the office”. What is going on?? The dispatch date on the page claims dispatch was supposed to be on the 26th, the email shipment delay claims dispatch is the 27th (today) and I have not received any other word besides the email sent last week saying shipment has been delayed…

      @booboo Thanks booboo! I suspect as well. I’m really upset though, the figure was announced on my b-day and I managed to snag one of the last ones. My brother said that the July 23rd shipping date was too good to be true… but in the email they sent they sort of confirmed that they were going to ship by latest July 27th… booboo do you think it’s more worth it to just order one from Amazon at this point? When do you expect CO will ship? Monday?

    • booboo

      July 28th, 2018 - 5:14pm

      to be honest Character didn’t have that many for some reason, if i were you i would ring CS Monday 1st thing and if they cant give a you a def dispatch date if not then cancel and go with Amazon, the expected dates are varying widely (one FP is still 30th August)

      Fp.com will charge £5 (approx) for an order over £20 (approx) no matter what other items you add to the order.

      I think fpi charge extra shipping per item.

      So if you’re just ordering 1 item then got for fpi. Although they usually take a lot longer to dispatch.

      Theres a toymaster in my town, that hasen’t stocked Doctor who merch since the first 11th sonic and tardis playsets (they never even got the series 5 figures in) However there was a Lazlo figure going for about £1.99 (still in box) available in the reduced section up until like 2015.

      Could this mean the entire chain of Toymaster is now interested again?

    Interesting that neither this doll nor the CO 13ths sonic feature in forbidden planet’s top 5 sellers scoreboard on their homepage.

    Previous preorders on Dr Who merchandise have shot straight to the top.

    Early sales figures and preorder numbers will give valuable information not only to shops and manufacturers of products but also the bbc as to how well the show is doing (or going to do).

      There’s no reason why it may not be right. It may just not have been as popular. Bare in mind the SDCC Pops dominate the top of the list, exclusives that were inevitably going to sell well.

      What Booboo is saying is that the list can’t be right, not because there are things above the Who stuff, but because the Sonic isn’t in the Top 5 products, while the Amy pop is #4, but on the side bar of this site, the Sonic is before the Amy pop which means the Sonic must be a higher seller than the Amy pop yet isn’t on the list.

      Sorry if I’m being stupid, where is the Sonic higher than the Amy Pop? And are you also talking about Forbidden Planet International?
      The slideshow in the centre isn’t the order of best sellers but showcases the newest products, the order and products on there are different to the Top 5 List. The Top 5 List has always been pretty accurate in the past I don’t see why it wouldn’t be this time.

      No, the sideshow here, on the Doctor Who Site, under the What’s New bar. It shows the highest selling Doctor Who products from FP.co.uk.

      I was referring to the highest sellers scoreboard on fp dot co dot uk, what’s interesting on fp dot com is how heavily featured the doll and CO sonic is on the homepage.

      I actually feel they might be holding back announcing the 5.5” 13th Dr figure until they’ve reached sales targets on the doll and sonic.

      They know loads of us are waiting to buy the 5.5” figure and the longer we wait the more likely we are to order the doll and sonic.

      It’s very clever marketing really, get rid of the ‘slower’ sellers first.

    • The Outcast

      July 21st, 2018 - 2:56pm

      I doubt that is the case. I mean, I wouldn’t think the Sonic Screwdriver toy replica would be a ‘slower’ seller, I’d think a lot more people buy the Sonics than the figures, though don’t quote me on that.

      Besides, I’m personally not gonna order the Sonic until the figure/s and Electronic TARDIS are put up, then I’m ordering them in one go to save on postage and assuming others are like me, then they would be losing a few sales.

      Sonics outsell the figures by a mile, always have done

    • Exterminator

      July 21st, 2018 - 3:03pm

      Thousands more figures are sold than sonics and now we’ve seen the far superior Se7en20 sonic, the CO version might just flop!

      I can honestly see the doll and sonic being reduced to half price before the years out.

      Any figures and Tardis sets will always sell well (as will Daleks) unless there’s something better on offer from the USA?

    • booboo

      July 21st, 2018 - 3:16pm

      CO will sell at least 10,000 of these if not more, willing to bet, they couldn’t sell 4000 Missy’s which were sold of half price in end.

      Figures are no longer a mass market big seller, sonics still are and its clear the doll is aimed mostly at a previously non existent market, i could actually see it outselling a 5.5″ figure.

      Sonics are the number 1 cosplay item which is far more popular that people think.

    • Exterminator

      July 21st, 2018 - 3:20pm

      Just remember CO have invested vast sums of money in this license and creating merchandise and they’ve got to sell loads of it just to break even.

      The bbc casting a lady in the traditionally male role has only added to the ‘gamble’. It’s going to be very interesting to see what happens.

      Given the investment from toy manufacturers, they will definitely be keeping an eye on fan forums like this site and staying in touch with sellers like fp to see how things are going.

      They made 2 big mistakes with the missy figure, creating two versions and charging too much for them. (Wasn’t it £19.99 to begin with?)

      I believe there was talk the higher cost was supposed to help fund the next “voted for by collectors” figure, it clearly didn’t work

      Character generally need to make a minimum of 2 variants for high production cost figure to make them viable.

    This is a great product. The likeness is spot on, the clothes don’t look to big and baggy. But I’ll wait for the BCS figure. I’m happy to save the money and spend big when it’s something like that. This is grwat for the general market. Hoping Smyths Toys start stocking the new merch as it would be great to see Doctor Who on the highstreet shelves again.

      The only problem is that these retailers need to be convinced of the potential of the gender neutral toy market and that will be a tricky job. Retailers, along with the less open-minded parents, believe in strong separation between which toys are suitable for their children.

      This will come out on time with no quality issuses, for the money think this will be better than the BCS version, from the four BCS that I own the quality is terrible, war doctor with a crack in its head, and bad likeness on rose etc. (I know this is aimed at a different market)

      I currently own the 11th Doctor from Series 7b, a weeping angel and most recently the 10th Doctor. I cannot fault them at all. I also have Sherlock and Watson, which again i think are fantastic collector pieces. I wanted the War Doctor, but form the promo images was put off by the likeness. I’m not saying BCS are perfect, but they are great collector pieces. I can’t get enough of them.

    I really want this! I hope they reveal the 5.5inch one soon! Odd not to release them at the same time. Back in 2006, we had 12inch novice hame and Martha before their 5inch counterparts!

    Have to say i stopped buying toys about 6 years now, but I have pre-ordered this. Also nice to see positive comments – I had to stop reading the comments on the trailer page boo boo, I just found a lot of them unpleasant. This item looks great, good likeness of Jodie. Really looking forward for the new series now
