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.

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

    I’ve seen the American figure and the U.K. Figure. Both have issues. The American one looks stiff and the U.K. One has the horrible paint job on the hair. Although this may be a collectors item anyway.

    It’s probably wishful thinking but I’d like a series 11 5.5 inch companion figure set of Yas, Ryan, Graham & Grace.

    Tim Shaw
    Demons of Punjab alien
    Morax Queen

      You won’t get any of this. 5.5 inch aren’t profitable outside of a couple of releases

      I disagree. This is a new era. They would sell very well if released now/asap.

      Are you serious? Have you seen the ratings for this series? No one would buy these figures aside from a few npc’s and beta males.

    • The Outcast

      December 13th, 2018 - 9:28am

      What ratings are you talking about? Viewings figures wise, the ratings are at 2008 levels.

      If your talking about review websites like IMDB, there’s been a lot of review bombing going on before the episodes aired (I wonder who would be doing that?), so the scores are going to be lower because of that.

      As for the figure choice presented in the original post, I like a far few of the ideas, though some, like Ribbons, I really don’t care about. One of Series 11’s genuine flaws was it’s lack of proper, iconic villains. Tim Shaw was the best villain this Series, and he pales in comparison to some we’ve gotten in recent Series. I mean, I’d take the underutilised Fisher-king over him.

    Who-ray! A Thirteenth Doctor figure to go with the rest of the Timelord gang! Shame it won’t be in time for Christmas but it will be a very nice treat to start the new year with!

    • booboo

      December 11th, 2018 - 8:09am

      most UK companies will ship to the USA, doubt if anyone will actually stock it though

    Where’s the Tardis to go with this figure? This all should’ve been on sale months ago!

    • Doctor whom

      December 10th, 2018 - 10:10pm

      I agree

    • The Outcast

      December 11th, 2018 - 6:52am

      I reckon it’ll be released in Feb around the same time as the B&M figure sets.

    • Bundy

      December 11th, 2018 - 7:05am

      Words fail (but I’ll still have a go) – there are 7 different figures on booboo’s Christmas Guide, all of which will benefit from being released whilst the show is on air and available for Christmas.

      The 5″ figure on the other hand will be released after the Christmas sales window, and after the only episode of 2019 airs.

      I don’t buy the BBC are to blame – the other 7 figures were given clearance in plenty time to be available, if this was available for submission why would it take so much longer?

      Well, they’ve missed the boat yet again just like they did with the Bill figure. The series has ended and they could’ve sold thousands if the figures and Tardis had been available to buy!

    • booboo

      December 11th, 2018 - 8:15am

      I’m sure they would have done it if they were able to, lots go on behind the scenes that we are not privy to and much of it outside characters control.

      The Bill figure had been hanging around for months and its only because Amazon stepped in that we even got her most likely

      The B&M sets have a long established time line, much of which doesn’t even need approval yet it was still more than 6 months from initial planning to when they hit the shelves.

    I’ve got my figure pre-ordered. It’s a bit of a shame it won’t come until after the NY special has aired, but still, at-least we’re getting a 13th Doctor figure.

    • doctor whom

      December 9th, 2018 - 3:18pm

      yes it is a shame.

  • Dr Who ruined my dress sense

    I wish they would bring back the little lego sized character building range. Even just a one off for each new Doctor. I like to be able to complete the set.

    Booboo, are these your own photos? If so, does the head have any articulation?

    • booboo

      December 9th, 2018 - 9:09am

      yes they are

      turns 360deg but very limited up and down movement, looks much better without the horrible neck joint though

    • Dalekparadigm2

      December 9th, 2018 - 10:44am

      Awesome! Yes I agree

    December 8th, 2018 - 10:06pm

    Booboo from owning the figure would you say that the sonic screwdriver is out of propertion with the figure?

    From all the pics and videos I’ve seen it looks huge!

    • booboo

      December 9th, 2018 - 9:07am

      its probably a tiny bit longer but not something i would have really noticed to be honest
