    Love everything about this *except* the 1st Dr who looks uniformally awful. Strange awkward pose & looks nothing like Hartnell. Such a shame as this could have been a definitive first Dr figurine.

    After the glut of new series figurines (just 6 of the last 23 releases have been original Who), this comes as a relief!

    Absolutely can’t wait!!! The original Tardis team. Fingers crossed for The Third Doctor companion set to have The Brigadier, Liz Shaw and Jo Grant!

    Even though I was expecting this set, I am very pleased to see it. Very much looking forward to it. Eaglemoss has shown time and time again that it can produce the best Doctor Who line ever. Long may it continue.

      13th Doctor set is ridiculously expensive.

      that’s the price in the USA $34.99 for the 2 figure sets http://www.things-from-another-world.com discount theirs, big bad toys have the price wrong for this

      Weirdly the first Doctor set seems very under priced on Big Bad given the exchange rate. I really cant see a 4 figure set going for less than £29.99 in the U.K.

    I hope the main set finishes soon as I’ve got not room or I could end up sleeping on the sofa to enable collection to expend further.

    Looking at this image of the first doctor, I immediately thought of the images they use for blu ray collections. Maybe it was made for a future box and then discarded and placed here.

    If the facial likeness is great I might be tempted to get these. I subscribe to the normal collection anyway but tend to prefer the non-human sculpts. Decisions Decisions…

    I had a feeling we,d be getting An unearthly child set next and quite rightly so. We need all the companions done. When will we get the images? I hope they capture the likeness. Something to really look forward to.

      So now we can stand William hartnell and David Bradley side by side or sizing each other up in the same outfit.

      I hope they dont just repaint Bradley for this after the blue 6th debacle.

      NEIL!!! You’re still here. I’m not on Twitter but luckily can still see others pages and I’ve just seen the pics of you promoting the 1st Doctor companion set, you look so happy and have a big smile on your face. I hope you enjoy going to work and continuing to create and expand these collection as much as the majority of is enjoy collecting it. Keep up the good work.

      Neil, if/when the regular fortnightly issues come to an end (sometime far, far into the distant future I hope), please consider continuing the collection with a periodic release of themed box sets of figures and oversized special editions. There’s so many more figures us collectors would like to see, hence the ever helpful!? wish lists and suggestions (dear Santa I would like….). Also, as long as the series itself continues, there’ll be many more new adversaries and allies of the Doctor to add to the potential figures list.

      Keep up the good work (for as long as possible 😉 )

      PS are there any figures you would wish to see that haven’t yet made it into production?

    I’m also really excited to see what the next two confirmed bigger companion sets are for next year.

    Maybe 5th Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Adric and a UNIT set??

    I will argue with anyone until I’m old and grey that not only is this the best figurine collection that Eaglemoss/Hero Collector has ever produced but that it is also the greatest figurine merchandise of Doctor Who ever done.

    The love, care and attention to detail that Ben, Neil and the whole team put into this set is astounding and I really hope, even though a few people moan here and there, that they understand just how respected and appreciated they are for all their hard work and effort.

    I’m so excited and looking forward to both confirmed sets for next year (13th and 1st Doctor companion sets) but I would love to know of there’s been an extension? One minute we’re told that Ben Robinson has confirmed an extension and so have the customer service department bit nothing has been announced and someone has mentioned their payment schedule stops at 180?

    The Lord of the Rings figurine collection by Eaglemoss went to 300 issues in their main collection and I reckon this set could go that far without even breaking a sweat or “scraping the barrel” as some people say. Look on any comment thread on this site, Twitter or Facebook and you’ll see tons of really good ideas and characters left to do, plus a lot of Dalek and Cybermen variants left to go as well.

    Either way I adore this collection and hope it continues for a good long while………would love to see a Menoptera made.

    This is a set I’ve been looking forward to ever since Eaglemoss announced they were going to release Companion sets. Its great to be able to add the original Tardis team to my collection 😀

    Thank you Eaglemoss 🙂

      These sets, if it finishes at 180 for single figures, would seem the best way forward as a continuation with the Specials inbetween.
