    Oh come on, why is not available in the UK? Doctor Who is a British programme, why does America always get the good stuff while we get nothing?

      The comic store I purchased it from had the sonic re-release in stock too (the one with the sonic pen).

    • Sebatron

      November 7th, 2012 - 1:09am

      is it in an ABC Shop?

    • Sebatron

      November 7th, 2012 - 1:09am

      What state???

    • Mels

      November 7th, 2012 - 9:52am

      I haven’t seen them in the ABCShop yet, I bought mine from a specialty toy store that carries comics and collector’s items.

      I’m in the West, so if you live in the Eastern States you should find them easier to track down, and your ABCShop will get them before ours (the supplier/distributer for Australian Doctor Who merchandise is based in Victoria).

    I still have no idea why they re released it??

    • Sebatron

      November 2nd, 2012 - 10:48pm

      Because Australia and America didn’t get much stock when this was first released. Also it is now quite iconic to Doctor Who now and it is re-released for the 50th.
