Figurine Collection (Test Area) 04 Weeping Angel

Figurine Collection (Test Area) 04 Weeping Angel

Celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who this fantastic new figurine collection. The series draws from every era show and includes all eleven versions of the Doctor plus his greatest monsters.

All the figurines are carefully produced in 1:21 scale, and cast in a specially formulated metallic resin before being painted by hand and individually numbered.

The specially formulated resin and high quality sculpting allow the figurines to reproduce an incredible level of detail right down to the mesh in the Silurian Warrior’s uniform and the controls on Davros’s console.

Each figurine recreates a specific moment from the TV series in loving detail and every sculpt is based on detailed study of the original production photography, props and drawings.

The collection features several different versions of the Daleks and Cybermen allowing you to trace their evolution over the years.

This is the definitive Doctor Who figurine collection.

    Just called them again today and they said about it being a test period and that I wouldn’t receive anything until if/when they launch! I wish they wouldn’t lead us on saying it was a stock issue when they never planned to send it out to subscribers until offical launch. If I’d have known I would have just bought them from my newsagent!

      That must be part of the test then, see how many people buy it then subscribe without actually sending them anything.

      The vast majority of people subscribing to this will have no idea this is a test

    • NABlaze

      April 12th, 2013 - 1:22pm

      Yeah, probably only wanted to get it in shops so people saw it and subscribed to it and those who already had subscribed had done what they wanted, so didn’t worry and wanted to only use issues to sell to those who hadn’t yet subscribed.

      issue 5 is the last one, there is a note in the magazine

      booboo when it is officially released will we get these figures aswell?

    • booboo

      April 12th, 2013 - 1:25pm

      I would think so but the order may change, issue 5 is the last one in the test, long wait until official launch now (if it was successful)

      What A disgrace to lie to us. If I would have known I would have bought issues 2,3,4, from the shops. I suspect a lot of people bought issue 1, and then did not bother to buy anymore as they had subscribed and assumed they would come through the post. I thought it was about how many they sold, when in fact,based on this info its on how many people subscribe. At least I picked up issues 5 today.

      April 12th, 2013 - 3:05pm

      Have sent them another email to clarify as somebody on Facebook phoned them yesterday where they were told “issues 2 & 3 went to packing on 27/03/2013 but not recd yet”

    • booboo

      “So I called up EM today and They have stock in and subscriptions should be arriving through our letterboxes in around 2 weeks.”

    Ah, I live in the test area but have no luck finding ’em!!
    Have been looking since issue #1!!
    I’ve seen a few comments quoting they have seen some in Aylesbury (the nearest apparent seller) after scanning the area I still couldn’t find the magazine anywhere!!
    Any one got a specific place in Aylesbury or Gt.missenden either is fine!

      £6.99 for a relatively nice figure and an informative magazine – i really dont think its expensive to be honest

      April 3rd, 2013 - 8:24pm

      Yeah but the first one was £2.50

    I wasn’t shore were to put this but Eaglemoss are going to send out letters to all subscribers to explain why they have delayed them. It also sounded like they had issue 1,2 and 3 in stock at the warehouse!

      Hope you are right Doctor 909. I have been disappointed not to have got any issues yet and have “moved on” I suppose, but it will be a nice surprise to get them.

    • Doctor 909

      April 3rd, 2013 - 7:42pm

      Oh and the women said “would you like to get issue 2 and 3 with that as they will come with…” Just so you know I was ordering issue 1 as a back issue. “…issue 1”

    • NABlaze

      April 4th, 2013 - 3:33pm

      I rang them today and they did say they now have the magazines instock and I should receive my issues in 7-10 days, I hope so as I’ve been waiting long enough, but at least it sounds like they’ve sorted their stock issues. 🙂

    • Upset Timelord

      April 8th, 2013 - 5:58pm

      I subscribed way back on 23/02 and have received nothing. Called up last week and was told the first couple were dispatched on 27/03.

      Called up today and was told no ones getting anything as they can’t honour the subscriptions. Utter shambles 🙁

      Really hope they can honour these and we don’t lose out

    This figure actually looks quite good judging by the photo, but still when these are released nationally I doubt I will get any, it’s just too expensive and some good figures don’t make up for the bad ones.

      To be honest it is a bit stupid messing up the current doctor and all the monsters are fantastic.

    April 3rd, 2013 - 2:56pm

    This one is extremely good. If they were all of this quality, I’d consider collecting these. I might just pick up the Weeping Angel issue when it’s released outside of the test area.

      The “monsters” are extremely good, well worth collection, lets face it though The Doctor isn’t brilliant, although he looks better in hand, so i hope maybe they can try to improve it for the national release
