5.5″ B&M 2017 Collectors Set The Monsters Stocks Arrive

To find your nearest store visit www.bmstores.co.uk. Please ring (option 3) to check availability before travelling. Priced at £16.99 per set. Product code 294255

This 5.5″ figure set is presented in collectors series window box packaging.

The Monster set contains…

  • Cyber Controller
  • Attack Cyberman
  • Sontaran Skorr


This second B&M exclusive Monsters Set contains The Cyber Controller from the 1967 Patrick Troughton story The Tomb of the Cybermen, A Cyberman from the 1985 Colin Baker story Attack of the Cybermen and Sontaran Skorr from the 2008 David Tennant stories The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky.

Accessories include a laser rifle and helmet with Sontaran Skorr and a Cyber Gun with the Attack Cyberman.

The new Cyber Controller (left) is a slight variant the original Build a Figure where individual parts were supplied in the “age of Steel wave”.

The face is a darker grey and the figure now has a silver rim below the brain section, the decoration on the brain is also slightly more obvious on this new version.

The “Attack” Cybeman (centre) is a combination of the Earthshock and Rogue Cyberman with appropriate paint application. The gun also has a different paint application. All in all i think most people would see this as an unreleased and new figure.

Sontaran “Skorr” is essentially a re-named re-release although he can either come with a rank insignia badge of 3 (Commander) or 5 (General) in this set. The badge is on the collar below the helmet line.

    Booboo out of interest did they ever release a cybercontroller 2006 figure Single carded without its chest bolts because I’ve got one and I think it might be a factory error

      Yeah it’s not marked as series 2. I’ve researched it and every picture shows the figure with its chest bolts/rivets but mine just has a cyberman body with the controllers head

    Why is Doctor Who figures starting to get less and less every year now, Why is it not like it used to be years back?

      because they sold less and less to the point where the big retailers didn’t want them any more, there were more popular things to fill their shelves with and it wasn’t viable to make them.

      Also over the years there has been more and more different merchandise for people to spend there money on.

      I hope this changes when series 11 comes.

    Quite a few left still in Gorton B&M Manchester. Wasn’t going to get them but they’ve been in there for a while now and haven’t sold out so I went for it. Think they’ve only got 1 of the 4th & Monster set left, plenty of 9th set though (obviously, because who would want that Rose)

    If you live in or around Chester then I found half a dozen sets (one full collection of each set at least) in the B & M homestore, Chester Retail Park, Sealand Road, Chester, CH1 4RY, today. Get there quick before they’re all gone!

    Not seen any of these sets at all in the B&M in gloucester town centre. Strange as they have had lots of the previous sets from past years

      No! Knowing how rubbish my local store is I will never get the 4th Doctor set! All 3 figures I don’t have. Another repeat of last year. Only this year they only had 9th Doctor sets

      we have loads in stock in Grimsby store and they arnt selling at all now.

      Mick, How many have the grimsby store got left ???? and is it just the 9th doctor set that isnt selling or are all of them not selling well now ??????

    • mick

      August 11th, 2017 - 6:33pm

      about 6x monster sets, 6x 4th doctor sets and about 9x 9th doctor sets

      Thats’s funny becuase my Local Store Lakeside didn’t have any the last time I went which was about 4 days ago !!!!

      since I have been to b&m woolwich which had 2 of each set, so i bought 2 monster sets & 1 4th doctor set

      Personally i think people are not buying the 9th doctor figure set becuase they are all re-releases with slight tweaks – no real variations e.g. black suit, pink shirt auton, blue shirt doctor etc

      The train journey from where I live to Grimsby would just take over 12 hours

      August 11th, 2017 - 7:09pm

      ive bought all 3 sets

      Mick, Does the store manager choose what stock gets ordered in or is it done automatically by the stock system ?????

    • mick

      August 11th, 2017 - 7:19pm

      its automatic but we can change how much of something we want so we up these sets.

      My local B&M told me they only had the 9th Doctor Set in & that was the last they would be getting in stock. Had to buy it off ebay as usual.

      I thought they usually sold these sets up until Christmas. This sounds a bit far fetched in my opinion. Maybe the warehouse is going to get more. 2000 seems a tad small even for an exclusive line.

    Is the Sontaran supposed to be the helmet-less Sontaran from “The Alliance” in The Pandorica Opens? I’ve realised that the Sontaran in the episode has this face and 3 spikes on the rank badge as well as a gun instead of the “Swagger Stick”!

      There are two variants, like with the Jo Grant in last years Third Doctor pack.
