    I’m in Australia and just picked up issue 130 from the newsagent. I am about 33 issues behind the current releases (which is at least a year and a quarter behind). Is there any way to catch up at all?

      Not a fan of series 11, but I adore those figurines- they’re stunning, just wish series 8 & 9 had that many figures per series too for my beloved 12!!!! Cant wait for the thijarian either in November!!! Hope they do a similar thing with the 3rd doctor- Jo, Yates and Benton as well as 1st doctor- Ian, Barbara and Susan, and the 5th doctor- Adric, Nyssa and Tegan- I hope we get the 5th doctor one just so we can have more 5th doctor figurines lol

    I have worked it out that there’s still 6 rare Daleks to come as there’s still 6 spaces left in binder so normally 3 per year so at least extended to 2021 and another note I’ve had my latest delivery of issues 160 161 binder gunship delivered today Saturday 26th October and a note to say plinth is delayed until December delivery

    • prototype dalek

      October 26th, 2019 - 10:16pm

      Doesn’t necessarily mean they will make that many, could just mean it’s as small as they would be allowed to be produced and have space if there is any further expansion. Plus the Special Dalek’s don’t have any fix time slot’s so we could either get them all next year or as you said 2021

    • Gareth Pugh

      October 28th, 2019 - 8:36pm

      Yeah. I can think of other Eaglemoss collections like the 3D printer one be had binders that held 15 issues but – having been planned to run for an original 90 which would have fitted perfectly in 6 full binders – they then extended to 110. The final binder just had 5 issues and a lot of space in it at the end. So the number of available spaces in their binders isn’t necessarily an indication of how many issues they will top out at.

  • Pj

    October 25th, 2019 - 1:27pm

    Eaglemoss just confirmed over phone extended to 200 issues
    As was still asking where issues 160 and 161 plinth binder and Dalek gunship were as still waiting

      Hi PJ,

      Did they give you any information on the delay in the latest issues/special? I emailed but no reply as yet.

      If there is a delay for whatever reason you’d think they could email subscribers. Their customer service can be variable to say the least.

      Cheers.

      If it’s going to extend to 200 issues an increase of 20 figures it’s probably because season 12 + Christmas special are coming and at least 11 of them figures will be from them episode’s

    • The Ergon

      October 28th, 2019 - 9:17am

      A fair few from season 12 will undoubtedly be included in the 170s+ as well as more daleks. I hope that Eaglemoss have something else planned if just to get Remaining characters or monsters out before this ends. For example a Voc/ Super Voc, Magnus Greel masked/ Mr. syn pack. That sort of idea. I would much prefer they concentrate on the classic ones as well that haven,t been done.

    • Steve

      October 24th, 2019 - 9:39pm

      If the issue is that they aren’t making enough money, then they are unlikely to be able to get more funding from subscribers (we pay them enough already) and others won’t be interested enough (otherwise they’d be subscribers already!)

      I just heard from customer services: “These have been slightly” (!!) “delayed. I can confirm they should arrive any day, no later than the end of next week!” (this was received yesterday).

      When I asked whether 162/163 (for which payment has been taken) will be delayed, they replied (today) “These should not be delayed as far as I am aware.”

    Always especially delighted to see a figure from the Tom Baker era – my own favourite! It’s a great choice to see Greel without his mask I think – ‘bent face’ in all his glory! All the other figurines are good too.

    Still hoping for that extension of course…my fingers are developing arthritis with all this crossing. There seems so many iconic monsters and villains still to be done. Even a Varga to commemorate the recent remake of ‘Mission’.

      But you are being negative. Yes consumers are allowed an opinion and by saying you want a different version you are being negative instead of appreciating what actually is being produced. It’s happening more and more with who merchandise. Instead of being happy that a,b and c have been released people complain and demand d,e and f should have been released.

    • Bobby Davros

      October 17th, 2019 - 4:29pm

      All examples of valid critical thinking. Should we ban all but glowing reviews? I was merely commenting on the design choice – some people think the masked look is more iconic and displayable. If I was being negative I would have said the figure shouldn’t be made full stop.

      There were furious* debates about this very thing and I knew it would be picked up almost straight away by some collectors. We went for the end-of-episode reveal but it was +this close+ that it would’ve been the full mask. We don’t take such decisions lightly 🙂

      *We had a chat over a cup of tea and discussed the relative merits of both potential looks, politely and professionally, as always.
