    I so, so wish this would come out here in the UK :’-( Also the WhoNA Rory variant and the Holo-10nth (banded) variant! Keep hoping one of the FPs or SciFi-Collector will get them… Surprised T’rU didn’t get this one as they usually like stocking Daleks!

      Unfortunately I think it is a custom, perhaps a gift from a fan, given that the neck tie looks like it is made from a piece of ribbon, presumably it is in the photo to show the size of the award he was given which does fit with the caption of the post, that being said it would be a shame if im right because Jamie is number 2 on my 5″ wishlist (after Romana 2)

    I’m not going to lie, after seeing the stealth Cyberman and sith doctor being mentioned, I miss the classic figures. They were so good in their prime and memories of 2011 came flooding back when my local forbidden planet used the biggest display section for Doctor Who and had all sorts of classic figures as well as modern figures. The 2 for £15 deal that they had with the figures, meaning I could buy a classic ice warrior and a sea devil if I wanted to. Actually, that was around the time I got the stealth Cyberman and sixth doctor.

    I just miss hearing news of new figures. It all sort of went down hill with all of the Leela rereleases and then the brig/Jo figures. I just wish they could have done a second series of collect and build figures where they could have covered a wider range of characters in one go. I remember the 2008/2009 period where wherever you went there was the series 4 collect and build, classic collect and build and the Cyberman collect and build and there was no escaping the fact that Doctor Who was a great show with lots of merchandise to show for it. But now it sort of feels like the opposite. There are hardly no new figures (I know why, but its still sad) and they were sort of killed off for me when they reduced the size. I cant tell whether I’m just being nostalgic or whether I’m making perfect sense. I miss the old days.

    BooBoo, have you and Luke ever thought about the doctor who site becoming an exclusive figure retailer in the uk?

    We could maybe crowd fund a couple of exclusive figures to get them produced, then offer them in the same way character options did with the Missy figures.

    Just an idea.

      March 24th, 2016 - 11:59am

      I wouldn’t know where to start but you would be surprised how complicate the approvals and rights processes can be its a minefield.

      I dont know if Character would go for such a thing

      Didn’t Frazer Hines want to do something like this

    • Exterminator

      March 24th, 2016 - 1:38pm

      I would suppose the first people to speak to is character options, they already have the licenses to produce the figures, they only reason they seem to have slowed to a halt is that retailers aren’t as interested as they once were.

      All you’d be doing is becoming a distributer of a couple of ‘limited edition online only exclusives.’

      We could crowd fund any costs with presales, as I’m sure there’d be loads of interest.

      I wonder how the scificollector site managed to get their die cast Daleks, Cyberman and Tardis exclusives? This site would be doing something similar.

    • booboo

      March 24th, 2016 - 2:05pm

      Character /scifi already have facilities to do that so its big job to set that up

      scifi collector for example already had a wholesale website / warehouse and an already established distribution / retailer network

      you are probably going to need a minimum of 4000 figures to make this work so you need to store / insure / pack and post that many figures.

      On top of that you would need to be prepared and allow for lost in post, damaged and faulty / not wanted returns.

      I would be more that happy to promote it but would never want to take on such responsibility

      If any one ever does it though some tips

      Sell on your own dedicated site, and Amazon

      Do a big push to start with

      Do a second big push when the stock arrives

      Run a very well kept up social media campaign with competitions etc -get people talking and sharing

      keep people informed to keep up the interest

    • Exterminator

      March 24th, 2016 - 2:13pm

      It’s a shame because you already have a fantastic brand name with the doctor who site. But, as you say it’d be a huge amount of work.

      An idea for somebody though? Underground toys and forbidden planet must’ve started small.

    • BrunoB

      March 25th, 2016 - 7:20am

      It’s really a huge investment for a new figure though. We’re talking¨£40,000 at least, if not £50,000. The only way to fund that is through crownfunding to be honest.

    • Exterminator

      March 25th, 2016 - 9:12am

      True it is a big investment, but just imagine the possibilities.

      Limited edition run of 2500 sets only of say a twin pack of Kate Stewart and Osgood for example selling for £30 each, that’s £75,000.

      Or how about a Hell Bent 12th doctor inside the classic Tardis set with classic console? Limited edition, I’m sure it would sell like hot cakes!

      I just think if we want to keep the line running, a few limited edition online only exclusives is an option.

    • booboo

      March 25th, 2016 - 9:32am

      the only way to find out is see exactly what costs are involved and if Character would even do it as they have the licence

      here is one of the problems involved though is that everyone would want their “cut” adding greatly to the cost

  • Dalek The Supreme

    March 24th, 2016 - 5:32am

    Looking forward to this, if I don’t end up getting it from the Doomsday set. I hope the bronze variant is eventually released, because that’s really hard to find here in the states.

      Maybe a bunch of you could get together and buy them, that way you can all split the shipping and it would be more reasonable. Just a thought!

    • booboo

      March 24th, 2016 - 7:03am

      problem is if you start buying multiples you risk import duties and costs which would make it very expensive

    • booboo

      March 24th, 2016 - 7:14am

      they don’t offer an economy rate just a tracked service

      whona are very good and i have got a lot form them in the past you just have to weigh up the costs

      they have many items people in they UK might want.

      Cyberman Bill if you can get one for me I’ll happily Paypal the Figure price & postage to you. (It’s Dave here!) Whona ARE very good but the £35 Postage is the killer. With a lot of items in the US under the £15 Customs Limit that’s brilliant, but when you then find out the Postage price that doesn’t make it at all tenable.

      I didn’t know TRU were advertising this.

      This is what CO told me.
      I can confirm that the Black Dalek Sec is an old version (2015) and was shipped to Walgreens USA last year as part of a range.

      Unfortunately, there are no plans for this in the UK.

    • booboo

      March 24th, 2016 - 11:33am

      not as such but they are on the back of packaging of Rose/k9, 11th Cowboy they have saying “also available ” when you cant buy them and they are toys r us exclusives after all

      old version? Walgreens? 2015? no one ever said they had bought one from there that i saw and it was never on their website (not that they put anything on anyway)

      none ever appeared on ebay or Amazon, how strange

      March 24th, 2016 - 4:34pm

      I asked CO about why is the Black Dalek sec advertised on the back on the packaging.:

      The reason is because the USA got the full range (assortment) and TRU who ran it in the UK only chose key items they wanted so the packaging showed the full USA range.
