    Ironic that a lot of people hate Clara Oswald, but still want a figure of her. Theres no logic in that.

      It’s more that people feel she’s badly-written, or over-focused on. She still has a recognisable look, and outfit, without being the most popular of companions.

      She also has a lot of fans who genuinely love the character and have wanted this figure forever. I’d imagine most of the figures will be bought by people who liked Clara (and then some by collectors who just want every figure regardless of whether they liked her or not).

      I love Clara! She’s one, if not my favourite companion and I for one can’t wait for this!

    It is a shame really, because although on one hand, some (including this one) SDCC pops are being shared, it still means having to hunt for them religiously before they’re sold out online or in store,and having to spend extra on it just because it has the “summer convention exclusive 2017” sticker on it

      Not really sure what’s happening with Doctor Who funko in the UK either to be honest as stuff due ages ago is being held up for some reason

      & no response from the numerous messages I’ve sent to Funko asking about it either!

    Love this but kind of wish that a different costume was used. Has been seen so many times before

      I’d love a figure of Clara with any of the post-Deep Breath costumes but I guess this is seen as a safer bet by many toy companies, especially if they don’t have current plans for multiple variants – it’s the one “crossover” outfit, meaning that the figure will potentially appeal to both those who want to display the figure with Eleven and those who are buying her to accompany Twelve.

      (It is a bit overdone by this point but even so, I actually wish Big Chief had gone for this look over the strictly 7B look, too, as I am buying the figure to go with my Twelfth Doctors.)

    When they say it will be shared does that mean it’s not limited edition then?

      No, it means it will be exclusive to others too (eg. Hot Topic in the US and Underground Toys in the UK)

      Oh thanks. I really want this you see. This is the one I’ve wanted for a while. Also I’d like a Bill.

      It’s going to be shared. Don’t worry.

    Will this ever be available to purchase on Amazon or somewhere in the UK?

    Booboo, do we think there’ll be a new 5.5 at SDCC?

      not expecting to unless UT (USA) are back on board

      we don’t even know if any planned Bill figure will get released for now

      I think we should all look towards some sort of re-launch next year to be honest

    I’ve only got 1 pop, the 12th Doctor one, so this would fit perfectly!

    I’m not a huge Funko Pop fan in general but I really really really want this to go with my two Funko Twelves. So glad Funko have confirmed (on Twitter) that it’ll be a shared release so it should be available somehow also elsewhere, not just SDCC .. might still need to be eBay for me but I’m just so excited. 😀

      I’d imagine eBay prices would sky rocket. They revealed stranger things Steve with this wave of sdcc exclusives and a couple hours after it was already listed at $110 on eBay
