    Don’t suppose there’s been any more updates on this?

    • The Outcast

      March 11th, 2018 - 11:53am

      No updates I know of sadly. Heard word in this comment section it could be another couple of months until we hear anything. Hopefully we’ll get something soon though. That would be good.

      The price has now been changed from £12.99-£15.99.

    • booboo

      March 19th, 2018 - 9:12am

      I have noticed some big price fluctuations on Amazon (enemy of the world SE £19.58 up from £12.99 just today)

      all boils down to screen price on the day of despatch, those would ordered at the lower price will still pay that

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

      March 19th, 2018 - 9:15am

      Could this be a sign that the listing will be updated with a release date or do you think it’s a long way off?

    • booboo

      March 19th, 2018 - 9:24am

      not had any updates but Amazon price can work on sales, there were lots of sales when it first went up but only a few now so that might be why the price has gone up, once images are released and the listing is more prominent sales should go up again so the price may come down

      also a lot of people are holding off ordering as so little is known

    And now the 13th Doctor and an Electronic TARDIS have appeared on Zappies website (trade sales only)…

    Anyone know any more about them? CO? Big Chief?

    • booboo

      March 8th, 2018 - 3:08pm

      they are Character products but no more info yet

      March 8th, 2018 - 4:53pm

      In one of the links it says 10. 10 what? 10 inch?

    • booboo

      March 8th, 2018 - 5:24pm

      we are assuming its 10″

    • TARDIS Stalker

      March 8th, 2018 - 10:57pm

      10″ Oh I hope not… not another scales change… I never got the 3.75″ figures and I won’t get anything other than the 5/5.5″ scale as I’ve already got over 1,000 in that scale.

      Come on CO keep it 5/5.5″ nothing else will sell well.

    • booboo

      March 9th, 2018 - 7:15am

      I’m sure we will see a 5.5″ figure, but with the supposed shift to a family audience and a female Doctor i could actually see a 10″ Doll out selling a 5.5″ collectors figure

      Character, who are for the most part a mass market toy manufacture, are going to want to cater for all markets here i would think

    Booboo I know this is very off topic but can you find a time crash set online? I’ve looked for ages to buy one but can’t find them anywhere

    • booboo

      March 3rd, 2018 - 6:18pm

      non I can see on ebay at the moment only 2 sold in the last 3 months

    Booboo i’m new to these sites, but love how you are so knowledgeable leant a lot from you over time THANKS. .

  • Exterminator

    February 27th, 2018 - 10:47am

    I haven’t ordered one yet, just wondering does the money get taken straight away even though it’s not even in stock yet and there’s no actual delivery date?

    • Exterminator

      February 27th, 2018 - 10:50am

      Ignore that, I’ve just read the listing. ‘Your account will only be charged once we dispatch the item.’ That’s ok then.

    • booboo

      February 27th, 2018 - 10:51am

      no they only take the money on despatch (unless you pay paypal who always take the money immediately but that a paypal thing nothing to do with the retailer )

      there is nothing to loose really we have ordered one

    • Exterminator

      February 27th, 2018 - 10:57am

      I normally pay with PayPal. I’m going to wait until it’s actually in stock I think.

  • LastOfTheSonics

    February 26th, 2018 - 7:23pm

    Surely a PR release or announcement is imminent considering this is still listed on the site?

    • booboo

      February 26th, 2018 - 7:27pm

      not searchable or in toys ” latest arrivals” listing now though which suggests its a long way off or listed prematurely

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

      February 26th, 2018 - 8:05pm

      Nothing like dangling a carrot in front of us. At least it confirms something is coming and that the listing is genuine. I hope we get an official announcement within the next couple of weeks to give us an idea as to when it’s going to be released.

    • The Outcast

      February 27th, 2018 - 8:14am

      I think we have to get an announcement within the next month.

    • booboo

      February 27th, 2018 - 8:26am

      last i heard it hadn’t been shipped yet (presumably from china) so that could make it up 3 months away

      also hearing it may also be a retailer exclusive in the USA as well

      i am glad we are seeing the figure but sad to see what looks like no high street presence either

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

      February 27th, 2018 - 10:40am

      If it’s still 3 months away from arriving that makes this situation even more strange as normally a product isn’t listed until the supplier has stock, unless it’s on pre-order which in this case it isn’t. Apart from FPI CO don’t have a partner on the high street they can sell it through with Toys R Us’ imminent closure and even if they could we don’t know how well it would sell.

    • booboo

      February 27th, 2018 - 10:48am

      Amazon listings of this type are generally marked temporarily out of stock if there is no fixed delivery date as yet, I have seen many of these before

      I think Amazon were offered it, agreed to take it and created a listing in readiness which we happened to have stumbled across.

      Not over keen on online exclusives as some core collectors like to see what they are buying (eg to get best paint apps) and it takes the brand off the high street which is sad to see

      better this than nothing though

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

      February 27th, 2018 - 12:40pm

      I’m interested to see how similar the prototype that Pearl tweeted is to the final product as that prototype re-uses the waist and leg section from the Primeval Series 1 Abby figure which could have been replaced with a completely new mould.

    • The Outcast

      February 27th, 2018 - 1:04pm

      So, assuming they start shipping about now, does that mean the Bill figure is due in/around May?
      Speaking of Doctor Who figures, has anyone heard anything about a new wave of B&M sets, or is it too early for any info on those?

    • booboo

      February 27th, 2018 - 1:06pm

      to early for B&M

      with bill dont even know if its actually gone into production so the timing is impossible to tell

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

      February 27th, 2018 - 1:25pm

      It would be cool if one of the B&M sets was a Twelfth Doctor set so that way we could get a repainted Twelfth Doctor hoodie variant to resemble the costume he wore in Smile to go alongside Bill, I’m not sure what the other two figures in the set would be bearing in mind they would have to be repaints or re-releases.

    • The Outcast

      February 27th, 2018 - 1:31pm

      I don’t know what they could really do for 12 either. Maybe a Legion Cyberman with a proper circle logo and a repainted version of the Black Missy to represent her Magician’s Apprentice/Witches Familiar costume more accurately? I would have said a repainted Dead Planet Dalek, but Daleks can’t fit in B&M sets.

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

      February 27th, 2018 - 1:40pm

      I would definitely have suggested the Series 9 Missy and Cyberman too, they could do any Twelfth Doctor hoodie variant that hasn’t been released, even a Ghost variant from Under The Lake/Before The Flood but I would prefer his costume from Smile.

  • James Evans

    February 23rd, 2018 - 1:08pm

    I hope with all this new Merchandise coming out when Jodie is on Tele that figures from Series 10 also come out. I am really hoping for the Updated Tenth Planet Cybermen. They should do 5 inch Series 10 Figure Box Sets.
    For Example:
    The Pilot-Bill(In Pilot/World Enough
    Heather(as pilot)
    12th Doctor(Episode Costume)

    Smile-Bill(Episode Costume)
    2 Emojibots
    Empress of Mars-Irraxa and 2 Ice Warriors

    World Enough and Time-Bill In Hospital gown with Drip, 2 Patients(removable costume parts to show evolution stages) Jorj and Mr Razor/The Master. Headset accessory.

    The Doctor Falls-The Mondasian Cybermen:
    Updated Tenth Planet Cyberman
    2011 Legion Cyberman
    Weapons Grade 2013 Cyberman

    The 3 Timelords-The Doctor, Missy and The Master
    Individual Figures:
    Bill(Smile Costume)Coming out soon
    The 12 Doctor(World Enough and Time/The Doctor Falls Costume)
    Updated Tenth Planet Cyberman
    Legion Cyberman
    Weapons Grade Cyberman
    Surgeon(World Enough and Time)
    Nurse(World Enough and Time)
    The Master(Including Exclusive Razor Figure)

    • Jordie55555

      February 25th, 2018 - 9:36am

      Given how the legion cybermen have already been released, once with the cybus logo and once without, I don’t think CO will be bothered to make them again. The same for the tenth planet cybermen. However, I would like to see re releases and some new series ice warriors would be nice in the 5” range

    • The Outcast

      February 25th, 2018 - 9:43am

      Jordie55555 I completely disagree on your sentiments on the Legion Cyberman. I think Character Options would make one, especially because the original O logo Cyberman didn’t have the 3D O logo, is hard to get and would be cheap as to make. If they were to make a set containing a new Mondasian and 2013 Cyberman, they could easily put it in to save money.

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby?

      February 25th, 2018 - 10:10am

      That would depend soley on what CO plans to release this year as a Thirteenth Doctor figure or a wave of Series 11 figures is guaranteed, but I doubt we’ll see any other figures released alongside Bill. I think as booboo has said this is the figure that was in production before the UT situation so I think it’s unlikely that any other figures were being produced at the time. I think the only way we’ll see any other characters from Series 10 produced is if CO re-visit the series if the relaunch for Series 11 is sucessful and that way we could see some more characters get released.

    • DoctorSong2016

      February 25th, 2018 - 11:15am

      I wonder if Nardole will be the new Rory. 😉

    • The Outcast

      February 27th, 2018 - 8:13am

      Nothing can be the new Rory, seeing as Rory was made during a time where they made pretty much every major character into a figure.

    • DoctorSong2016

      February 27th, 2018 - 11:43am

      Even though they hadn’t actually made the figure until he left/was leaving the show and then it took forever for them to release him after that.

  • cheesypie

    February 22nd, 2018 - 7:51am

    wow! sold out already, why aren’t suppliers wanting to stock doctor who figures then?

    • booboo

      February 22nd, 2018 - 8:27am

      was never in stock

  • The Silent Silent

    February 21st, 2018 - 5:35pm

    Just pre-ordered myself one Bill Potts Figure !!! cant argue £13.87 isn’t a bad price at all !!!

    Maybe Amazon Exclusives could be the way to go 🙂 🙂 great for if you have Amazon Prime !!!

    • LastOfTheSonics

      February 22nd, 2018 - 6:40am

      Yeah but even if you are not a prime member and have the pay postage, it no more expensive than Forbidden Planet as they always slapped on a postage charge too. TRU were a nightmare in terms of being able to order online….and lets not even talk about B&M.

    Did you get a reply from CO BooBoo/

    • booboo

      February 21st, 2018 - 1:51pm

      yes, but cant really get all the facts yet, its most likely (but not confirmed as ) an Amazon exclusive (the listing is genuine)

      the listing is live because stock is expected “soon” but in Amazon terms that could still mean weeks yet

    • booboo

      February 21st, 2018 - 6:15pm

      what i have written above basically

      possible Amazon exclusive, listing live because delivery is “soon” but that can still mean weeks by Amazons time scales

    • EndlessTimelord

      February 21st, 2018 - 8:56pm

      Do you think there are any more coming?

  • booboo

    February 21st, 2018 - 12:55pm

    I see this is a best seller – not bad for something there is no picture of and no PR as yet

    • LastOfTheSonics

      February 21st, 2018 - 4:09pm

      I want to see an official image first to be honest, as well as a formal announcement. Even if the listing is genuine, I always play it safe.

    • Demdike@CultLabs

      February 21st, 2018 - 6:59pm

      Being the #1 seller may well inspire Amazon to ask for more exclusive figures.

    • booboo

      February 21st, 2018 - 7:02pm

      long way to go yet, but when full PR is behind it as long people order who knows

      the wider public have no idea about this figure yet and even those who do are hesitating to order because of lack of solid info

    • The Outcast

      February 22nd, 2018 - 8:56am

      #1 best seller…
      Its times like this I wonder why the figure range is in a bad shape.

  • The Legend Doctor

    February 21st, 2018 - 12:24pm

    I wonder what Jodies Sonic Screwdriver will look like and Character will obviously release a toy as soon as it gets revealed like they have done for Matt and Peter so hopefully they know what it is so they can start making them now

    • booboo

      February 21st, 2018 - 12:29pm

      more so that ever i think the key to a good future is getting stuff in the shops as soon as its on air

    • The Legend Doctor

      February 21st, 2018 - 12:49pm

      Yep, It would be great to see a whole wave of Figures regarding Series 11 for Jodie! So maybe:

      The Thirteenth Doctor Twin Pack (In Twelfth Doctor Outfit and Her Outfit)
      Dalek (Re Release with New Paint Designs?)
      Cyberman (NIS Edition)

      Merchandise (Non Figures)

      The Thirteenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver
      Re-Release of The Masters Laser Screwdriver

    • The Outcast

      February 21st, 2018 - 12:54pm

      Definitely. I’ve love to have a regenerated 13th Doctor figure by Series 11 episode 1.

    • The Outcast

      February 21st, 2018 - 1:01pm

      Oh, I didn’t see the other comment, it must have been posted just before I posted mine.

      As for a Series 11 wave of figures, I’d like to see:

      13th Doctor set (Regenerated and Normal outfits, like the 11th Doctor crash set)*
      The new TARDIS

      *If a regenerated 13th Doctor is released beforehand, just release the standard 13th Doctor figure on it’s own

      Other Toys:
      13th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver
      Whatever else they can think of

  • The Outcast

    February 21st, 2018 - 12:05pm

    I do wonder if anything else will come alongside this figure. A re-release Laser Screwdriver would be cool and wouldn’t cost much to do. The Master did use it in Series 10.

  • Bill

    February 21st, 2018 - 6:34am

    Will they ship to the USA?? I tried and for some reason it didn’t let me but I don’t know if I was doing something wrong.

    • The Outcast

      February 21st, 2018 - 11:49am

      Probably, Amazon is a US company after all.

    • TigerMan1995

      February 21st, 2018 - 5:44pm

      They will ship it to you but it will take a month because overseas

    • War Master

      February 22nd, 2018 - 4:17am

      No, at this stage it looks as if Amazon UK is only taking orders for UK & Ireland only delivery addresses. If you try and enter a delivery address outside the UK it comes up with a “there is a problem with your address, sorry we cannot fulfil this order at this time” type message.
