Figure Collection Magazine Issue 150 The Valeyard

Available to order while stocks last from www.forbiddenplanet.com

Also available to order when released from www.shop.eaglemoss.com

The Valeyard!

The Valeyard appeared in the finale of the 1986 Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) adventure, ‘The Trial of a Time Lord’.

Acting as prosecuting counsel in the case against the Doctor, the trial is thrown into confusing when the Valeyard’s actual identity is revealed: he’s also the Doctor! So how can the prosecutor and the defence be the same person?

      The first Doctor figure we got was supposed to be from Reign of Terror so I doubt they would do another from the same story. For the inevitable companion pack I would like a coatless/dishevelled version from An Unearthly Child with Susan.

      Being from the same story hasn’t been a problem in the past, if they want to do the figure then they’ll do the figure.

    Do you think they will ever make models like: empress of the racnoss, the werewolf (s2), the krillitane, lazarus creature??

      These are all on our list, although there might be problems with the Racnoss Empress because of how delicate the figurine’s legs might be, and we have to consider breakages. Are there any more you’d like to see?

      Macra? Troughton or Tennant, although I suppose the Tennant version would have the same problem as the racnoss with those huge claws on spindly arms!

    What about the second emaciated Doctor played by Geoffrey Beevers as he looks different to the Deadly Assassin version and Missy and the Eric Robert’s (Bruce) master from the TV movie

      Missy will almost certainly be coming, not sure about Roberts as there’s TV Movie licensing restrictions. Beevers is a possibility as they haven’t represented Keeper of Traken yet and they love variants at the minute, but if they only get one shot at a Traken figure, they’ll go for the Melkur I’m sure.

      FP are slow when it comes to stocking.I just either pick up from WHsmiths or failing that just order from ebay from a reliable source.I may pay a bit more but it costs as much running petrol off. I used to subscribe but with all that business with late deliveries,Moving Premises, sending Poorly finished/ wrong Items at the end of last year and the beginning of 2019, i just gave up.

      March 20th, 2019 - 7:59am

      have they officially said its been pushed back because the description shows 145 which is now Sutekh but the magazine is still showing 147?

    • The ergon

      March 20th, 2019 - 10:00am

      Correction. I assumed it has been due to the ‘Chief Clown ‘ showing up as 145 rather than sil. I was surprised myself so just ordered. Perhaps you could get the facts from Eaglemoss.

    • The ergon

      March 20th, 2019 - 11:21am

      Its thrown me out with the numbering. I, m still awaiting Sutekh from FP and they replied they had sold out even though i had ordered on Preorder but were awaiting for more supplies from Eaglemoss to fulfill my order. The Chief clown as i say came as a surprise since they hadn,t got neither the tomb cyberman or Sil and the clown wasn,t Preorder on Eaglemoss’ site. So if you could clarify whats happening i would be grateful.

      i have asked Neil but i know he doesn’t have much to do with the shop and i don’t have a direct contact

      I do know FP have definitely sent out some Sutekh’s, some under the Clown listing and some when they changed it

      Gut feeling is EM don’t have the clown they have made the same mistake as FP

    • booboo

      March 20th, 2019 - 11:39am

      147 is def the clown and 145 sutekh and 146 sil, he’s going to contact them so i would hold fire for now until they change it

    • Stephen m

      March 20th, 2019 - 11:41am

      Sutekh is definitely 145, as subscribers have already received it

    • Neil

      March 20th, 2019 - 11:41am

      I can understand people’s confusion. Issue 145 is definitely Sutekh, and issue 147 is definitely the Chief Clown. I’m now trying to get this error fixed ASAP.

      The meta crisis doctor came from the regeneration of the 10th doctor when he started to regenerate after he was shot by a Dalek in the stolen Earth/journeys end but stayed the same he only used the regeneration energy to heal himself

    Fantastic! Been waiting for this one for a while! So now all we need is a Watcher, a Meta Crisis Doctor and a Curator figures (and possibly a Shalka Doctor) and we should have all versions! Bring them on Neil!

      Sad news on the Shalka Doctor – he’s not covered by our licence. We checked. The others, however, most certainly are…

    • Anonymous

      March 20th, 2019 - 6:47pm

      Peter Cushing is non canon so would not be covered.

      Next Doctor could be done as is a canon story.

      “The others, however, most certainly are…”

      That’s very intriguing phrasing!

      I’m now more hopeful that all the ‘inbetween’ Doctors are now more likely to be produced. All those different aspects of his personality – the Dream Lord, the Watcher, The Valeyard…and perhaps all those others that weren’t quite the Doctor – Meglos, Jackson Lake, Ganger Doctor…

      Then there’s the Curator, I’m not quite sure what category he would fit into. Did he exist as his own entity which was used as a template when Doctor III regenerated into Doctor IV (the same way Romana I became Romana II/Princess Astra lookalike…and lets not forget Commander Maxil/Doctor VI and Caecilius/Doctor XII)?

      Every Doctor that appeared in the main series of 1963 – Present should be covered, other Doctors such as Peter Cushing from the Movie Dalek films, Shalka Doctor, anything by big finish and comic characters won’t be included. BBC will only sell a licence that isn’t connected to anything other than the main canon.

      For example, when Product Enterprise did the Movie Dalek’s, that was because they acquired a licence from studio Canal so were able too alongside the classic series merchandise.

    Looks good and about time although it’s nice to see the Valeyard sold as the 150th edition – Im assuming the figure was held back with a milestone copy in mind. Just have to keep fingers crossed for a nicely painted one….Well done to those who correctly guessed it was going to be Michael Jayston.

    Nice, a must-buy, but I would have preferred the sculpt to be based on his court scenes, complete with cap, rather than all wind-swept.

      This was my first thought, too, Martin, but we soon realised he looked particularly dull. When we found out that Michael Jayston really didn’t like the hat, it was clear we should do the figurine as he appears in episode 13 🙂
