    Love the figure. Face could be more realistic, but paintwork and pose are fantastic.

    I received this figurine and the Renegade Supreme yesterday. I love Linx, a figurine I’ve been waiting a long time for and he doesn’t disappoint.

    I think the Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood need a separate set, But First we need to redress the Companions Issue The Companions have always been an integral part of the Doctors story. So WHY are they Still Missing from the set?

      Because the collection which was generally referred to as “The Doctor and his Greatest Enemies” collection has not currently reached 150 issues. Ben has said they will release companions if they reach 150 issues. Before that it was pretty much a no full stop.

      No thanks…just be a load of figures which don’t look like the people they’re supposed to look like, they just about managed some of the Doctors….the figure of Timothy Dalton is absolutely nothing like. Much more interesting would be Who vehicles and space craft, we know eaglemoss produce superb vehicle replicas of all sorts why not Who ??

      K9 would need to be sold at a reduced price as it would be very small if it was in scale with the main range.

      I take it you mean Eaglemoss customer service or something? Ben Robinson has said on twitter that they may start doing Doctor/Companion twin packs.

      Yep and they have been talking on Twitter about making tentative plans for what to release if they get beyond 150 issues! (they didn’t spill any beans about what those plans might include, other than they *might* consider a few companions after that point if sales are still holding up)

    • booboo

      September 9th, 2016 - 6:00pm

      one thing I should say, is that the fact they are able to go to at least 120 shows they have got the mix about right as to keep enough people on board!

      According to the person I spoke to @Eaglemoss they are only going to do 110 figurines.

    • Christina

      September 15th, 2016 - 12:52am

      If there’s only 110 I’d like to know what’s coming between 90 – 110 so if the one’s I’m waiting for ain’t gonna be done i can cancel my subscription

    • Aries57

      September 25th, 2016 - 8:21am

      When this collection first started I was sceptical at 80 issues,that only gave us a small proportion of characters, if Eagle Moss sort out their delivery problems and customers are kept happy then I for one will carry on with the collection, and I suspect we will have a new announcement shortly extending to 140, especially when you consider between now (issues 82 &83) they have to fit in 6 possibly 7 Masters before issue 120. if it stops at 120 that’s 24 or 25 characters unannounced, plus 5 or 6 Master figures (if they do all versions of the man) also if the trend of one Dalek and one Cyberman every ten issues continues that figure is down to 18 or 19. If it’s extended beyond 150 and they add companions to the list it could be 200+. now there’s a scary proposition.

      Ben Robinson also tweeted that there’s a lot of rare daleks coming

    • AngryDrashig

      September 27th, 2016 - 6:52pm

      Surely there cant be that many rare daleks left….the one that is rare is the ‘glass’ revelation dalek now that would be worth seeing….

    September 8th, 2016 - 10:11pm

    And for a classic Troughton story stuff from the Mind Robber is very noticeable by its absence especially as the White Robots, the Toy Soldiers and the Medusa would all make excellent figures

      White Robots would be cool but I’m not sure about the others. If we’re talking about Classic Troughton, I’d quite like to see a Fish Person, Macra special, Chameleon, Quark, etc.

      Commander Kaagh?!

      I think they should do a Sarah Jane Adventures mini set for the 10th Anniversary!

      Maybe Issue 1 and 2 could be combined into one issue and make it Sarah Jane and Sarah Janes Car? 😀

    There was mention of the venom grub…would have been very nice as an addition to the other Vortis life forms but I hope they havent chosen it as the ‘easy option’…

    • Aries57

      September 25th, 2016 - 8:31am

      Problem is if they do only one character from Vortis a lot of folks will be disappointed that they missed the others off the list. Me included.I agree if it is the grub it seems the “easy” option. I don’t know about anyone else but my list of suggestions for characters not yet modeled is constantly growing. Let’s hope the collection continues to grow.

    • AngryDrashig

      September 27th, 2016 - 6:55pm

      Surely there have to be far more Hartnell Troughton and even Pertwee figures. As well as the web planet aliens what about the voord the drahvins and the chumblies , koquillion and a war machine special…. Then a Macra special, a Dominator to go with the Quark and a Kroton. And surely Alpha Centauri and also from Pertwees era Kronos and a solonian mutant with an Arcturus special.

    I think they need to have a look at a Doctor Who ‘vehicles ‘ set again I’d love ‘who’ vehicles made to the same standards as the best of the eaglemoss Star Trek Ships and the Batman and Bond vehicles.

      There aren’t really that many Who vehicles, are there???? The Rani’s Tardis The Master’s Tardis of which there have been at least 5 Bessie, The Who Mobile Dalek ship Cyberman’s Ship. might work as a couple of the specials but not really enough to justify a stand alone set. perhaps Bessie could be issued as a special as its probably the most seen vehicle,Tardis not withstanding. If it was combined with the consoles of the various Tardises, Masters and Rani’s included, that might work.

      Also the Sontarans ship (the Round one)… you could also have Donnas little car that had the Atmos attached to it. Also, maybe the ship from 42… they could do Sattelite 5, the Cybermans ship, all the Daleks ships, Capt. Jacks Ship, Brannigans car, flying Great Britain(that has the Space whale(?)Under it. The WWII Fighter plane that went after the Daleks….. of you really think about it, there are a lot of Doctor Who vehicles….. there is actually a wickapedia page devoted just to Doctor Who vehicles.

      Umpteen varieties of Dalek ship from Dalek Invasion Earth ( get the film rights sorted guys) through to Remembrance….Cyber space craft…. umpteen excellent space craft from the Space Pirates… in fact masses of space craft from every era…I think Ben managed to count the number of dr who vehicles on one hand….

    Hope he’s helmetless – although a helmeted classic sontaran wouldnt get any complaints from me later ( Stor aiming his weapon as per the final scene of ep 4 of Invasion of Time would be superb)…. However it’s really about time we had something from The Web Planet though where are the Zarbi and Menoptra??

      I had thought we would have had either the Zarbi or Menoptra by now, Neil and Ben have mentioned them. I think we may still see one before issue 100.
