    Lucky I got mine. At B&M Farlington last one they had, so I reserved it down the phone. Very happy with this set!

    Why are there two Jo variants, I mean why have CO gone to the effort to use two sculpts? It’s just a bit odd isn’t it, they won’t give any major new figures but are happy to use two sculpts for one figure.

      I got the serious face, but I don’t think it’s a resculpt so much as a repaint. The smile is still sculpted but the lips were purposely painted smaller and straight.I purchased 2 sets. Both are like that.

    Highly recommend, This Delgado Master is the highest quality ive seen and the Jo Grant figure is the best looking version as well. Pertwee looks as good as the rest but has the best hair colour of them all.

      I find this the case with most figures, but the actual paint application on the faces (eyes especially) of some of the sets are quite poor because of the low budget cost these are set at. On the other hand, find a good one, and you are probably right.

    why cant they make things like

    2. a rommana 2 figure
    3. a second doctor figure set
    4. eight doctor figure set
    5. any dalek figure sets!

      I would be very happy if they could do at least one of them

    • Cyberdoctor42

      July 10th, 2016 - 3:58pm

      Well, a dalek two pack would take up the shelf and shipping box space of two to three figure three packs so wouldn’t be commercially viable and they won’t do a newly molded figure because a single figure for £15 doesn’t really work with B&M’s general low price feel.

    • Guest

      July 18th, 2016 - 4:37pm

      1. Day of the daleks would just be rereleases.
      2. Too much new tooling. These sets are to make money. Not to cost it.
      3. Again, it would be just rereleases.
      4. There isn’t much to put in a set.
      5. Nobody would buy it, except army builders.

    If these sets are just releases and repaints, then could we have a planet of fire set for the 5th doctor. It could come with 5th from the resurrection of the daleks set (no hat), caves of androzani peri and the planet of fire master

      i suppose in the long run anything is possible provided the likes of B&M and toys r us continue to order these sets

      at only 3 sets a year though it might be a long wait

    I have been doing a bit of research on these three figures. Obviously, the Master is seen wearing the same outfit throughout the Pertwee Era.

    The Doctor in blue jacket, was wore for the story, “Invasion of the Dinosaurs” and I am not certain if he did wore again in “Planet of the Spiders”.

    Now the Jo figure is interesting. I did a research on which story she worn. The outfit looks very similar to the outfit she worn on “The Time Monster”. Even, it has short sleeve and has no turtleneck around the neck. I am thinking to think that she did wear this outfit in another story, but I am quite certain that Character Online did an error on the outfit.

    Read yourselves and see what you can contribute.

      It’s supposed to be based on Jo from The Time Monster. The problem is that the B&M sets are only re-releases and repaints so they couldn’t remould a new costume (otherwise the set would be much more expensive). Therefore the new figure is based on the pattern/colour scheme but not the shape – it is a repaint of the figure from the “Three Doctors” set.

    • Number 6

      July 4th, 2016 - 6:45am

      I thought so. You’re right, if they remould Jo, it would be slightly expensive. Still, it’s a good technique to reuse figures and repaint them in order to save money.

      I got mine shipped here to Canada this week and customized the Jo Grant to fix her properly. I sliced off the turtleneck and discovered that the head has a proper neck so no need to sculpt one… popped off the arms from the shoulder down and replaced with Ace’s spare arms. I had to slice the hands off though and attach Jo’s again to keep all those rings she wears.
