    Today 23/08/2019 I had issues 155 & 156 with a note saying from 158 subscription price is going up to £7.99 which I guess for me it will go up to £8.99 as I subscribe to include the Rare Daleks it also says they have had expand well after the initial 80 issues but doesn’t say if they are expanding further

      Yep, got the same note as well.
      No information whether its going beyond 180.
      £7.99 for 22 more figurines??
      Come on!!!

      gut feeling is they are testing the water with a necessary price increase if they are going to continue beyond 180.

      realistically no one could have expected these to stay at the same price after 5 years and 3x its original planned run.

      If people don’t want to pay more, you probably won’t get anymore, that’s the way i see it. I’m quite happy to continue as long as they can with the increase.

      And an androgum 2nd doctor

      They should’ve done that Andragum 2nd Dr instead of the one from power of the Daleks and done the Meglos 4th Doctor we got for his second figurine and the Companion sets should’ve been box sets of all of each doctor’s companions because we’re going to have to many doctor figurines

      I will be honest, i think people really wanted that fur coat second Doctor, but these companions sets are really aimed at casual buyers as well.

    I dreamed that 160 was a ganger and 161 was John Linux in whilechair and 163 was 12th dr in Davies chair

      I wonder if there’s figures Eaglemoss can’t do. Leandro would make a really cool figure, same goes with the Abzorbaloff & Kandyman, but they never get made. I know they can’t do everything, but I’d like these.

    My word, so many monsters and villains still to be made. What a brilliant figurine collection! Definitely need Stygron, Cailleach and a Vogan please! Vega Nexos would be brilliant too! And a primitive from Colony in Space.

      Funnily enough it never really did in photos, probably because the studio lights still reflected off the costume. But Previews mag shows a photo of the actual figurine and that most definitely looks black.

    Is it true that the Cybermen in the sewers in this story are the same ones that were trapped in the sewers at the end of ‘The Invasion’, but just evolved?

    And am I also to understand that the ones on Telos are the same ones that got sealed in the Tombs in ‘Tomb of the Cybermen’? Judging by how the cyber controller is meant to be the same one.

      Yes it’s implied that the ones in the sewers are there because of the events of “The Invasion” and still use the sewers as a base. They obviously can still travel to and from the base to Telos which is why they have the upgraded look. Maybe when a future faction meet a past version they upgrade them.
      The ones on Telos are basically the same Cybermen in cold storage but also have the upgraded look and the controller is indeed the same one as he was “merely damaged” during the 2nd Doctors adventure and he’s even played by the same actor.

      The changes have always bothered me a bit but they obviously wanted to keep a uniform look to the Cyberman and also keep the budget down without building other Cyberman costumes but it would have been cool to see the Cybermen on Telos still looking like the 2nd Doctor era ones. They even changed the look of the Tombs to a less behive look and more like cells on ground level.
      I suppose the Cybermen could have come back to Telos later and upgraded the tombs and the frozen Cybermen which would explain why the rouge Cybermen have this new look too.

    Two things!

    1) Where did you check

    2) Cyber Planner is unlikely, and won’t happen before issue 180. Sorry.

      Reveals aren’t my department. Any news on an extension will be revealed the moment I have it.

      August 1st, 2019 - 7:38pm

      I had a feeling it was the Black cyberman, so just googled to make sure and i think you mentioned previously that the black cyberman was on the cards at some point. No reveal of any images, so haven,t seen those if that it was you are referring. I would like the extension and hopefully the cyberplanner.

      Sorry if it’s already confirmed but when Mr Corry says “won’t happen before issue 180” does this mean it’s carrying on past that. Hope so.

    • booboo

      August 2nd, 2019 - 10:36am

      its not confirmed, i hope it does, even if it doesn’t perhaps EM will continue with specials and sets

    • Neil Corry

      August 2nd, 2019 - 10:48am

      No decision has been made whether to carry on the collection past issue 180. When I say a figurine won’t appear before issue 180, this is to say that we’ve planned up to issue 180, including any extra figurines that might appear in the special issues, companion sets, etc.
