    Called B&M cearphilly they told me they haven’t had stock yet, I was passing by the shop so I popped inside to see they had all three sets no tardis and got told by a member of staff they’ve had them all week.

    So if you have called your local stores and they’ve said they hadn’t got them in and your passing it might be worth popping in and checking anyway.

    I’m sure the member of staff I spoke to on the phone just was a little fed up with all the phone calls asking about them.

    Cearphilly still has 1 of each set and a bunch of dalek sets no tardis.

    Hi, I’ve recently been to Kingston retail park (Hull) BnM they had all three figure sets but no third Doctor Tardis set. I kindly asked one of the members of staff who stocks the shelves and gets the delivery’s in. He said that they will hit shelves next week. If you ask nicely and your polite they will put a set aside for you! I’m going to check today to see if there are any further developments. I also checked the Holderness road store hull. they had all three figure sets again no Tardis sets. The staff members I talked to had to clarity on when they will arrive. I hope this may help anyone in the hull or east riding area!

      There are, of have been around 80 3rd Doctor/Sets on ebay – Just 2% of the stock

      Even if this rises to 10% that still leaves 3600 units out there in the long term.

      Up until recently the stores near me had last year’s sets still on sale at less than half price. After the intial panic buy things will settle down and we’ll probably see sets on the shelves for ages.

    • Exterminator

      August 16th, 2018 - 12:34pm

      Don’t be disheartened by what’s happened this year Booboo, we all appreciate your hard work and commitment that it takes to keep us all informed.

      It’s thanks to this group that many of us managed to get these figures before the greedy ebayers. I myself only managed to find the 3rd and Tardis thanks to somebody saying they’d seen them on this thread.

      I blame b&m for not getting them into every store quickly enough and not putting restrictions like one set per customer. It’s just so wrong when you hear of people buying up the whole box of sets.

      B&M did a great job this year and actually gave us a set that most of us really liked and wanted, but a little more research on their part could’ve avoided a lot of the chaos.

      Keep up the good work Booboo and Luke.

    • booboo

      August 16th, 2018 - 12:44pm

      To be honest now i look closely at whats actually happening on ebay its become irrelevant and will soon burn out as more stocks get around.

      On the restriction note, as someone who worked for many years in retail having to turn away / restrict customers purchases at the till leaves staff wide open for abuse to be thrown at them. and It WILL happen. I can’t see B&M actually risking subjecting their staff to that for the sake of what they see as a few toys.

      they don’t sell anything online, so to set up and online shop / packing center etc etc for hand full of figure sets just wouldn’t be cost effective for them.

      On the distribution side realistically it only been 4 days and stock is getting around now.

      On the “complain to B&M” strategy, well maybe they might think its just not worth it, these are a few figure sets to them mixed among a massive range of products in huge stores.

      Sort of what i expected long term with the 11th but sadly after the experience of the last few days and some comments left elsewhere i don’t think we will do this again assuming sets will be available next year. I nearly didn’t do this post because of the lack of clarity as it was but sort of regretting it now.

      That’s really depressing I’ve been going to my local b&m since Monday to find just one of the tardis sets to put away for my birthday. its really upsetting that people are buying ridiculous amounts of sets just so they can make money or so they can keep it in its box and then put it on a shelf or in a cupboard and forget about it.

      Thank goodness the prices are dropping. Hopefully they drop to a normal if not less price on eBay to prove the scalpers a lesson. Then the scalpers will hopefully stop buying in bulk and selling at ridiculous prices and let the real collectors and fans find them and buy them instore.

      I’m looking at a listing that began at £10.00. Anyone with common sense would raise it to £15.00 and hope for the best. That listing now stands at £30.00. To be honest, I’d rather hope and pray than use eBay.

    • booboo

      August 15th, 2018 - 5:55pm

      not defending ebayers but if you don’t sell on ebay you wont know the costs, a £20 Tardis would have to sell for probably a minimum of £28 inc post and you would make nothing at that, those selling the sets for £29.99 with post were making around £5 or less

    • Ollie

      August 16th, 2018 - 7:57am

      I’d pay maybe £40 for a TARDIS set on eBay but no more than that; the amount of money you’ll end up wasting on petrol driving from store to store covers it in all honesty. Can see prices are starting to drop although one person with more money than sense has opened bidding at £100 on a set that has 9 days to go when there are loads of them going for £50-60 with only a few days to go.

    B&M must be VERY happy with themselves. People checking every store in the hunt for these. It’s brilliant marketing. I must say i’m very happy with the sets I bought from the GLOUCESTER stores. I must say that after last years (almost) disaster with the 9th doctor sets which have failed to sell for over the last year, I feared that we wouldn’t have any B&M sets this year. They knocked ot out of the park this year. Well done B&M and Character! Brilliant. Also; I wish everyone the best of luck in tracking down the TARDIS. It’s a brilliant set. Don’t fall for eBay prices! They’ll be near you in due course. 🙂

      Well, in the Southgate Street store, I had to ring them and they kindly put the 1970s and 12th Doctor sets aside for me before they had even hit the shelves. And I didn’t check what was on the shelves in the Eatern Avenue as i had reserved thwle 11th and TARDIS sets over the phone so all I had to do was find an employee and ask them to grab it for me. So, sorry about that! When i was on the phone to Southgate Street they said they had loads of 11th Doctor sets. Hope this helps! The anon comment was me btw!

      Does Tolworth count as South London? If that store is applicable, then I went there last week, and managed to get the 1970s set, as well as the 12th Doctor set. Apparently someone had called the store on the week I was visiting, and they had hidden away the sets (I’ll leave it up to you to decide if it was an eBay person or not). I’m not sure if they still have the sets, but if they are not there, ask a staff member if they have it in the office. They most probably will have.
