Doctor Who 11th Doctor Purple Jacket 5.5″ Figure

Now available to order from www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk

Also available to order from www.toysrus.co.uk

Geronimo! The eleventh incarnation of the legendary Time Lord the Doctor was a man whose youthful appearance and quirky enthusiasm was often at odds with his world weary temperament. Easily bored, the Eleventh Doctor liked nothing more than travelling with his companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams in search of thrills and new adventures.

It was at times that his friends were in danger that the Eleventh Doctor would display his often frightening temper and brooding rage but he would always return eventually to his friendly ways.

    As with the TOTD set I wish the waistcoat was darker as from memory this style of waistcoat was his velvety black looking one, the grey was a different style as seen in JTTCOTT. Still like the purple coat look overall and so wish this had been 11’s look from the get go.

      He changes his outfit before regenerating. He wore the black velvety one when he was walking around Christmas.

    I finally got this guy from from my ‘local’ toys r us today (Infact the last one there) and I’m very happy, having not gotten the the Time of the Doctor set, this figure is brand new to me, but it’s great figure…

    The details are very nice and there isn’t a single fault with the articulation. The head is easily removable, however unlike the Time set, the jacket and waistcoat are glued (Although they’re easy to peal of after putting in hot water, incase you want to customise). I can’t say whether this devalues the Time of the Doctor set, but I can’t imagine it would as now you can display pre and post regenerated Doctors from the episode together.

    Overall, I think it’s a solid 8/10 figure. Doesn’t get the full 10 as it essentially is just a rerelease though, and a bit of a downgrade. But nonetheless a good way to get a great figure cheaper, if you’re not too bothered about the accessories in the Time set!

    I think they’ve really missed an opportunity for a good variant here without the need for new sculpting.

    By repainting the waistcoat a brighter grey, shirt a lighter blue/grey and the bow tie burgundy with white dots I made a Hide variant.

    Now if you repainted the non-bow tie waistcoat in the same colours from the TOTD set then you could have had a great hide variant set with basically no extra sculpting needed just a change in colour!

    It’s a real shame they didn’t do this I think as it would have been a great seller as a different variant!

      Well, you’re absolutely right. At least it’s cheap enough now that u can attempt to customize it. Here in the USA, the TOTD set is about the same price as this figure so u might as well by that since u get the extra 12th doctor head and handles. It’s only $23.50.
      Hey CaptainJimipie, do you have a video up of you doing this repaint variant? If so, you should put a link to it.
      I did exactly what u said and my figure looks great.

      That’s a shame and annoying, I didn’t even know they actually sold that figure in the until the other day. I’m wanting to get this figure and 8th, I just wish the 8th Doctor would come in stock. You could get the Flight Control Tardis with the figure. Then you would end up getting the postage free.

    It’s rumoured the reason why this and the Amy Pond figure got this style packaging is because they’re the only two figures that actually got changed. Amy got more apparent tights, and the Doctor’s waistcoat is apparently now glued down.

      To be honest i did not buy Rose and K9 not because I already have her but because the packaging is not reusable (and the black stickers look horrible)

      If you are going to do a collectors series at least keep the packaging uniform

      I would have done all the packaging like Missy’s but with a different motif related to the figure possibly

      even small details like a spoon with the purple Doctor would have made a world of difference

      I’m really pleased to see these coming out but cant help felling its a bit half hearted

    • anon

      November 4th, 2015 - 11:53am

      I guess it would have cost money to do character-related motifs for each figure.

    He looks a little lonely without any of his previous accessories (except for Sonic SD), but with around £15 cut off the price, they won’t be missed too much!

    Does anyone know what determines whether ‘classic’ or ‘new series’ logo is used in the new 5′ figures box style packaging? Missy and 8th Doctor have new series logos while the 12th Doctor and Clara have classic logos. I actually like the fact they’re using both but just wondered if there is some logic to it that I’m missing.

      I think using the current logo indicates something particularly special. The Missy figures being directly sold off Character Online matches how that website sells mainstream items that use the current logo, and the press release talked up the Eighth Doctor figure quite a bit so perhaps it’s meant to indicate a highlight of the line.

      October 28th, 2015 - 1:21pm

      should really be classic up to the 12th Doctor

      “New series” is classed as the current Doctor

      but then its been all over the place anyway so i really dont know
