Character Building Compatible Base 5″ Tardis Set

This TARDIS Play set is a reproduction of the console room of the new Eleventh Doctor’s time machine and varies from the original produced in 2010 as it comes with a Character Building compatible base and features a CB 11th Doctor in addition to the standard 5 inch Doctor figure.

    I have this wooo. i ordered the normal one for 12 pound. they came with this so litterally i got the tardis free cos the figure would have been ten pound and the cb figure would have been 2 pound!
    BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGAIN!

    I personally, A. see the point in this because character building figures are not to scale with the tardis playset anyway and B. i dont like it because i think the floor looks silly with the character building floor

    Good gosh, CO are still telling me (email) this item doesn’t exist, despite giving them proof otherwise.

    *Gives up on CO customer service*

    I hope these sets pop up for sale in a few more locations soon.

    If I can find this I might asctually get it, since I was planning on getting a second playset to customise anyway (light etc). And I won’t knock back a ‘free’ action figure or two in the process! 😀

    I hope that CB floor is removable though.

    Ohhh… *smacks head*. I just remembered, the CB stuff is made in POLAND… if this has been assembled by the Charcater Building branch from the Polish factory, it might make sense.

    Still total speculation. What do you think?

    Has anyone bought one of these yet? It will be interesting to see what info is printed under the box, etc.

    I’d also like to see a better view of that new floor. 😛

      Hmmm, true. Well, I’m out of ideas.

      Still seems odd that they would ‘forget’ about an entire release, Then again, they’ve been churning out so much stuff lately, they might overlook the repackaged stuff.

      Not very professional CO! *Hits CO with discipline stick*

    I emailed Character Options about this item and got the following reply:

    “Thank you for your email.

    We have no information relating to a 11th Doctor Tardis Playset that
    includes 5″ Figures and Character Building Figures.

    Many rumours spread around lots of various Dr Who forums, and the only
    advice we can give is to await the official release details for accurate
    information.

    Hope this is of some assistance”

    So CO are denying this product exists?

      I wonder if someone at one of the CO factories has spliced together their own set without permission?

      Completely speculating there. I’ve asked CO to clarify their response to this…

      Trust me, this is a 100% official Character item, do people seriously think it would be on here and scificolletor selling it if it wasn’t genuine

    • booboo

      July 1st, 2011 - 5:02pm

      That’s the reply i got, Scificollector, a very well know and respected retailer (responsible for Torchwood and merlin figures) and they have it physically in stock in their shops and have done so since Tuesday. People are saying it hasn’t been “officially” announced – You cant get any more official than the thing actually being on sale in a shop.

      so would you buy the 2010 one in Toys r us for £39.99 or this one which comes with a Figure and some CB bits to mess around with for £39.99?

      Its a promotional item aimed at the 1st time buyer

      July 1st, 2011 - 8:08am

      no offence but the character building figure wont even be tall enough to reach the cinsole and the normal things wont be able to stand up probably it be better with two different floor s normal and lego
