    Never bought any of these companion special releases before, but thought I would take a punt with the 12th/Bill set, arrived this morning, and I am very impressed, very good likeness and paintwork on both figurines, love the tardis box they both come in, roll on the 2nd Doctor/Jamie release!

    Ordered yesterday arrived this evening – great service! Both figures are much nicer in hand than the images I think.
    As this is my favourite pairing since the show came back I’m doubly pleased. Just wish we could have had Bill for longer!

      Mine arrived today as well. I’d say my figurines are pretty much the same level of paintwork and likeness as the promo photo – no better no worse really. But as ever, the mini mag is excellent with lots of photos I don’t think I’ve seen before and an exclusive interview with Series 10’s costume designer.

    DPD just dropped off and the images above don,t do them justice. The figurines themselves are actually more alike.

      So booboo, do you get lots of merchandaise free as you are giving them free advertising or do you still have to pay for them?

      we kindly get some stuff from them but we still pay for all the subscriptions / specials bonus etc, have done since day one.

      I have to say my figurines are shockingly sloppy. Really disappointed.

      I like them but to be fair it doesn’t matter if it really good or poor sculpture I love them all you still know who they are ….I have collected since day 1 all of them 🙂

      What I noticed most was that the packaging has been completely overhauled from the previous 3 releases. Mine in hand aren’t to bad.

      Surely there must be somewhere that has 10th and Rose in. Somebody mentioned ‘The Who Shop’ a few weeks ago had plenty in.

      Well it did notify me for 10th and Rose as soon as it was on so it worked out fine for me.

    I’m glad they’re doing these sets, but the sculpts are not up to the same quality as the human characters done in the regular range – compare the Doctors.

    I don’t collect these figures as i don’t have the space for them, but I’ve just got to say that Bill just doesn’t look like Bill. I can only describe that face as “constipated”.

      I see your point, but they’re so small that they look better in person. If these were 5″ figures, it wouldn’t be great, but they’re like 3.5″ so it’s not as noticeable.

      I’ve only got one human(oid) figure – the Valeyard – and the face doesn’t look as good in pictures as it does in person.

      Still waiting! So much for ‘In Stock’ wish they would all pull their finger out & get on with it!

    • The ergon

      May 8th, 2019 - 8:31pm

      FP tend to advertise as ‘In Stock’ to lure those pre-orders and just because its prebooked doesn,t necessarily mean youre going to get before anyone else. They have to wait for Eaglemoss to relinquish some of that early stock and they don,t always get it first. I know from experience and it doesn,t always guarantee you,ll get first batch.

    • booboo

      May 8th, 2019 - 8:37pm

      In stock should mean in stock and the quantity levels set accordingly, if that hasn’t happened here someone needs to look into it

    Very VERY disappointed with Bill. The actor/character has such a great expressive face, but even with this composed expression, this figure doesn’t even remotely look like her. It literally could be anyone BUT her. The pose doesn’t exactly scream out her personality either, so you’ve captured nothing of her at all.

    I suppose it’s always the same with this type of thing, the monsters are perfect but human features are more difficult. These may not be hugely accurate but you can tell who they are meant to be. It’s the same with the captain Jack figure as well.

    Do a lot of the doctor figurines look perfectly right? The Sarah figurine doesn,t look like Elisabeth Sladen. They are just Iconic representations of that character. The only ones that usually get the facial feature correct are the 5:5 range. I want them all the same.

    I will wait for Clara (I will buy anything Clara) but looking at these she will end up looking like someone else anyway as for collecting these I’d rather have the consoles they were going to do.

      These 2 sets are coming out in August (12 & Bill) and September (9 & Jack) and they’ve said the 2 & Jamie set is to be the sixth released so I’d reckon October or so?

      May 4th, 2019 - 4:34pm

      it wouldn’t surprise me if EM got them much much sooner put they have yet to put them one their site which is why i was holding off.

      May 8th, 2019 - 7:47pm

      Wouldn,t you normally get these earlier if your subscribed to Eaglemoss. as you would normally get the notification asking if you are interested in purchasing and get automatically reserved? I think thats why i got both sets more or less together last year?

    • booboo

      May 8th, 2019 - 8:40pm

      i never got anything like that and i subscribe to everything

    • The ergon

      May 9th, 2019 - 12:22am

      It must have been the specials i,m referring to for notification then but i,m sure it let me know through my Email Account messages when they were advertising to let subscribers know that the companion sets were available and not ‘automatically reserved’ but an option to preorder.
