Character Options announces a 5.5” Scale Thirteenth Doctor Figure

The new collectible will be available for pre-sale from 1st December 2018

Character Options has announced details of the next item in its 2018 Doctor Who collection; a 5.5-inch scale figure of the Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker.

Renowned for its highly detailed 5.5 -inch figures, this latest collectible from Character will delight fans who are celebrating the brand new TV series which launched on BBC One on 7th October.

The figure depicts the newly regenerated Time Lord dressed in her high-waisted culottes, rainbow striped dark blue shirt and coat. Carrying the essential sonic screwdriver, the figure comes with multiple points of articulation.

Please note we have removed an image that does not represent the final product. The removed image was originally posted on the official BBC studios site.

Mark Hunt from Character Options commented: “From the moment we announced details of the 10” Thirteenth Doctor figure in late August, we have been inundated with questions about a 5.5-inch scale version. We are therefore delighted to be able to reveal details of this latest Doctor Who release.”

The new figure costs £12.99. It will be available from late December, and can be ordered on pre-sale from 1st December 2018

      The Who Shop have also asked people on Twitter whether they’d like to see an unboxing video of it.

    Looks great! Probably will not be purchasing however as Jodie isn’t a stellar doctor in my opinion and the 4th doctor regeneration set looks more promising.

    Do you think they will release a B&M set on Jodie and the companions together.

    • The Outcast

      No, as they’d need to make the companions as figures first, and that costs too much money for them to be in a B&M set.

      I’d reckon we’ll probably see the companions in a set or as separate single carded figures.

      Same after every episode too. You have to except negatively on forums etc.

    • booboo

      November 9th, 2018 - 6:48pm

      you can’t sensor negativity no matter how unpalatable it maybe in certain quarters.

      But the wider internet is far more aggressive than than “passionate” people on merchandise forums and sites.

      generally the negativity is from a handful of posters who post multiple times whilst those who are happy post once and move on.

      The fact is though if you don’t want to hear anything negative then don’t come anywhere near the social media, or ignore it and realise most people are appreciative of the efforts put in.

      Some people really care about their “hobby” of collecting without realising sometimes what they wish for just isn’t possible.

      I am happy that we’re getting the figure, I’m just disappointed that it’s fallen short due to the inaccurate pattern on the shirt and that the rainbow pattern on the coat doesn’t strech down far enough. Other than that it looks great, I just hope the head sculpt doesn’t come out too soft in hand.

      People are aloud to criticise things. Fair enough on the nitpicking on the figure, but honestly it’s allowed and no one is saying things that are out of order.

      And as for negativity after episodes…you are allowed to be a fan of something and not shower everything with praise. I don’t think any of the episodes so far have been that great.

      Personally I find it annoying when things are showered with praise when they could be better. So it goes both ways I suppose.

      Its the sycophantic posts that are the worst.The ones who ally themselves with outspoken posters who then gang up on individual commenters without any respect for their opinion. As aforementioned say what you have to say in a constructive manner and move on. I know, i have on occasion made the odd blunderous comment myself which is just a silly instant knee jerk response without thinking what i have to say, through. If a comment is patronizing, sarcastic or negative towards any one person, it should not make it onto the site. Thats what the mediation is there for.

      The “reply” option is our worst enemy as it encourages the very behavior you mention on here and every social media platform, but take it away and constructive conversions ends.

    This is excellent. This year, I have Doctors 1 through 7 and 9 through 11. Hopefully by next year, I can complete my lineup of the Doctor’s incarnations, including number Thirteen here.

    I’ve ordered this from Galaxy4. Cheaper both for the figure and delivery. I have not used them before so really home they fulfil the order.

      do they also say they will deliver it on the 7th of January?

      November 9th, 2018 - 6:39pm

      They have 5th Jan as the release date so if that does turn out to be correct, then I suspect it will be dospatched within 2 or 3 days.

      They sometimes have a delay in getting stock, but equally they can get things early as well. They tend to send things the day they get them or the next day at the latest. I’ve never had any problems and if you have any queries ring them or email and they’ll be as helpful as they can.

      Ah yeah, probably right. I think if you people class him as a Doctor you then need to include the Valyard, the Dream Lord and the Watcher. Although 10 used up a regeneration by channelling the excess energy into his severed hand, the resulting Meta Crisis Doctor was a result of something else with Donna and not the actual regeneration. Therefore in my opinion their have been 14 incarnations of the Doctor and 4 entities that are connected to the Doctor but not actual incarnations.

      It’s two David tennant figures. Jodie is the 15th doctor, Matt was officially the final doctor (the doctor confirms this in time of the doctor) before being given a new set of regeneration.

      I don’t know why anyone would want a set with two Tenth Doctors though. They’re easy enough to come by anyway.

      Thing with the valeyard is, he’s not a regeneration of the doctor. He seems to be a manifestation of the doctor’s darker side, but he isn’t a time Lord himself, otherwise he wouldn’t need to steal the doctor’s regenerations. He was created between 12th and last (13th doctor matt smith Technically) according to trial of a time lord, it never says he was the doctor, just part of the doctors psyche.

      I know lots of people who would want that. Seems a bit pointless to me, but as far as they are concerned it would be great.

      Actually another point about the valeyard is that he never really confirms in the ultime foe that he is a version of the doctor. The only proof is from that reliable source the master!

    I’m quite disappointed that the prototype isn’t the final figure. It looks so much better. The final product doesn’t look awful, but it looks quite cheap compared to the prototype.

    • booboo

      November 8th, 2018 - 9:16pm

      it looks so much better because of photoshopped parts not viable on a production figure

      as far as I’m concerned that image should never have been put in the public domain and has just fuelled unjustified negativity to the disadvantage of us all.

    • SJF

      November 8th, 2018 - 10:17pm

      I’m sure if we were to see a factory produced version of that prototype, it really wouldn’t look all that far off from what we’ve got.

    • The Outcast

      I’m kinda with Booboo here. When I first realised the differences between that photoshopped prototype (which, at the time, I didn’t realise was a prototype) and the proper image, I was annoyed that we didn’t get the arm and upper leg moulds that were on the prototype. I still am a bit disappointed, as the upper legs on the prototype look better and the arms have more articulation, which is what I was upset about (I always understood the paint apps were always going to be like the production figure’s), but I’m still highly looking forward to this figure, which still looks great regardless.
