    I pre-ordered both of these when they first became available on Forbidden Planet International – still haven’t received them!

    A few months after that, they became available to pre-order on Zavvi, which I also did.

    I received 11 over a month ago and 4 yesterday.

    They’re wonderful. Funnily enough, I was never a fan of Playmobil when I was kid! It was Lego all the way!

    Unfortunately Zavvi is stating that 4 has sold out and there’s still no sign of these on ebay or Amazon.

      the distribution of these is terrible, FP have had some stock in stores but non have been sent out on-line from either .com or co.uk

      Forbidden Planet International just cancelled my order, stating they couldn’t source them. I wonder if they ever got any in stock?

      FPI are usually very good for pre-orders, really disappointed as I wouldn’t have minded having 2 of each.

      some stock did arrive but nothing was ever sent out for on-line orders from either fp,com or fp.co.uk

      FPi have cancelled all orders and removed all listings

      we are getting told by others this maybe just another delay and they are now possibly due September

      I wish I had Pre-Ordered with Zavvi now! I would have had both figures & it would have been cheaper as well!

      Picked them up at a convention. They’re large and hefty and neat. The 4th Doctor is really awesome. The 11th is kinda plain and could easily blend in with generic figures if it wasn’t for the hair and sonic.

      Actually just had an email from zavvi saying mines dispatched today!

      Neither FP has sent out any, seems poor distribution with these

      Forbidden planet have reduced their prices to match now!

      January 11th, 2017 - 7:51pm

      True, but FPI are charging for p&p at £3.50!

    • prototype dalek

      January 11th, 2017 - 8:18pm

      Which brings it over RRP still with the £3.50 P&P

      FPI are now issuing Refunds for the overprice

    Fifteen quid!? I would have preferred them released it in their regular scale so it can be used with all their other figures…and they would be cheaper.

    I wonder why there are 4 Ninja Turtles figures, but all the other franchises only have 2?

      Because nobody would buy the Ninja Turtles if the set of four wasn’t complete I suppose.

      Having said that, there’s one turtle missing.

    I really like the 4th Dr and the Oompa Lumpa but the one next to it with the white hair looks like Jimmy savill.

    Are these going to be available anywhere else as I live in Australia and the postage costs are a bit high

      I thought that as well! When they were first mentioned back in mid-2016 I thought the price of £11 was steep. The RRP is actually £17.99 but FP are charging £15. There was talk of two-packs then, but obviously not now.

    • BobsUrUncle

      January 11th, 2017 - 10:02am

      I think maybe £8-£10 would be decent for these. I mean I can get a proper detailed and articulated Doctor Who figure for £15.

    I really like these in a strange way and might actually buy them

      Or is it because they are by Funko and you can add more to your amazing Funko collection? 😉

    • MickeySmith07

      January 10th, 2017 - 7:19pm

      That may be a contributing factor

    No idea what to make of these, just really different. I can see why they brought them out as they are a part of a set of recognisable characters in TV and Film.
