    Space is a huge issue with me, so if the sculpts improve further and they Star Wars-up the packaging, then I’d be happy to buy any and all classic Doctor Who figures in this smaller scale. Either Star Wars sized backing cards or something akin to the tall and slender cards used for Macfarlene’s Walking Dead ranger would be preferred. And instead of the crappy generic logo and image of figures on the front and back give us a photographic image of each character on each figures card and a small cut out and keep bio on the back (akin to the 80s).

    Anybody else a little bit more excited at the look of David Tennant’s coat in the corner?

    • Dalek the Supreme

      January 23rd, 2014 - 2:18pm

      My ideas:
      *Earthshock set (Adric, Cyber-android, Cyber-Leader, and Cyberman w/thermo gun)
      *Trial of a Time Lord: The Mysterious Planet set (Glitz, Drathro, and Servo-robot)
      *Trial of a Time Lord: Mindwarp set (Peri, King Ycarnos, and Lord Kiv)
      *Trial of a Time Lord: Terror of the Vervoids set (Vervoid, the Inquisitor, and Mel)
      *Trial of a Time Lord: The Ultimate Foe set (Sixth Doctor w/red tie and bigger afro, the Valeyard, and the Master)
      *The Curse of Fenric set (Ace, the Ancient One, and a Haemovore

    • Dalek the Supreme

      January 23rd, 2014 - 2:20pm

      *Wheel in Space set (Cyberman, Zoe, and Cyber-Planner)
      *The Beginning set (First Doctor, Ian, Barbara, and Susan w/the TARDIS)
      *U.N.I.T. set (Bessie, Liz, and Benton)
      *The Web of Fear set (Jamie and a Yeti)
      *The Enemy of the World set (Second Doctor and Salamander)
      *The Evil of the Daleks set (Dalek Emperor, Maxtible, and humanized Dalek)

      Earthshock set is neede yes, brand new Adric figure with a cyberman an repaint to be cyber leader. Then the correct Ainley Master possibly from the 5 doctors if anything? Maybe with a generic timelord/president and a chancellery guard. TARDIS console room the other obvious, please character end the line, but end it with some greats!

      I also wished they released:
      Celestial Toymaker
      Emperor Dalek from Evil of the Daleks
      Yeti from The Web of Fear
      War Machine
      Fish People
      Cybermen from the Moonbase
      Macra from The Macra Terror
      Dominator & Quark from The Dominators
      Time Lord from The War Games
      White Robot from The Mind Robber
      Chameleon from The Faceless One
      Salamander from The Enemy of the World
      Seaweed Creature from Fury from the Deep
      And more that is from other stories from first to seventh that haven’t yet released!

    • Joe Roberts

      January 23rd, 2014 - 5:31pm

      Also the Time Lords from The Deadly Assassin, The Invasion of Time, Arc of Infinity, The Five Doctors, Trial of a Time Lord, The End of Time and The Day of the Doctor. I love the costumes and also I like the things they wear on their backs. Actually I love the old ones because they are the best.

      I quite agree.

  • James Woods

    This is NOT the end of the 5 inch classics! It is a heritage line which basically means they are making previous versions! It isn’t the end of the 5 inch figures.

  • Lumat

    January 22nd, 2014 - 10:12pm

    They’re still carrying on the classic line in 5″ but they don’t have any plans for any for a while.

    • VespiformsSting

      January 22nd, 2014 - 10:57pm

      How very feeble of them….. I could give them a few ideas hard core classics fans would cheer at……

    January 22nd, 2014 - 8:42pm

    does this mean classics in 5 are gone

    sorry, so has the 5 inch classic figure line been cancelled for good? and are the claws of axos and the daemons sets the last of the 5 inch classics?

    • Explosive Cookie

      January 22nd, 2014 - 8:44pm

      No, they aren’t.

      only Underground toys can answer that

  • A New Dalek Paradigm

    January 22nd, 2014 - 7:52pm

    So the Revelation Dalek is still the wrong shape only smaller. I think I’ll pass.

    • booboo

      January 22nd, 2014 - 9:59pm

      one mould, loads of colours, that’s what I foresee

  • Joe Roberts

    January 22nd, 2014 - 6:21pm

    3.75 classic dalek figure!!! No way! I prefer the 5 inch classic! If they going to make the 3.75 classic, I am not buy anymore. This is serious! How you going to play 3.75 with 5 inch? Over my dead body!

    • Joe Roberts

      January 22nd, 2014 - 6:25pm

      Oh by the way, there was a picture of a genesis dalek and underneath, it says “heritage line” and I am still not sure what it is means.

    • The Big Friendly Button

      January 22nd, 2014 - 7:18pm

      This is probably for general release.

    • The Master

      January 22nd, 2014 - 8:42pm

      I have to agree the 3.75″ figures are just not that great, hardly any detail in some characters like matt smith’s figure

    • Madmanwithabox

      January 22nd, 2014 - 10:48pm

      If you don’t like it don’t buy it. There’re no point in complaining!

  • David FutureDoctor

    January 22nd, 2014 - 6:19pm

    As far as I’m concerned, my money’s gonna be well spent this year. The heritage wave is an exciting concept and of course as is Capaldis first figure! U know what? Forget 5″, 3.75″ all the way!!! Theyre so collectable and very easy on the pocket, (new 5″ would cost £15+)

    • Pwilc1967

      January 22nd, 2014 - 6:42pm

      It’s not so much the pocket as the available space. I have seven/eight years worth of 5″ figures out in themed displays. There is no room left to start on 3.75…. Although they could be in perspective…. No… No…. Stop. It!

  • MoarCrossovers™

    January 22nd, 2014 - 6:18pm

    RIP 5″ Figures
    You were good son, real good. Mayve even the best.

    • Madmanwithabox

      January 22nd, 2014 - 10:49pm

      We are still getting 5″ classics don’t worry

  • Anonymous

    January 22nd, 2014 - 5:44pm

    I thought when they released their update on moving over to 3.75 they said they wouldnt be regurgitating everything we’ve already had in the 5″ range and that it would be Series 7 onwards..? The 3.75 range lacks detail and articulation so its not really a collector range (IMO) they are definatley “toys” so why bother expanding the range into pre 11th Doctor?

    • Pwilc1967

      January 22nd, 2014 - 6:43pm

      If it’d gonna make them more money, promises will be broken…

    Booboo, is all the dr who stuff at the toy fair now on the site, or was there extra stuff we haven’t seen or you can’t show us?

    • booboo

      January 22nd, 2014 - 5:09pm

      there may have been stuff there we cant show but we wouldn’t have got to see it anyway

    Please Character Options go back to the 5″ they were the best 🙁

    • booboo

      January 22nd, 2014 - 4:36pm

      they wont go back to something retailers had stopped buying

      whether we like it of not the core collectors make up only a very small part of the overall sales and its not enough

    I’m hearing rumours of The Ninth Doctor being in 3.75 Scale

      if the take up from retailers is good i wouldn’t rule out anything

      All in favour of a 12 Doctors set (3.75)? Retailing around £25 to £40 lol

  • Davide Edinburgh

    January 22nd, 2014 - 4:09pm

    Classic dalek in 3.75′”? They are very confused…

  • VespiformsSting

    January 22nd, 2014 - 4:05pm

    Its seems to me is that whats happened is that this company suddenly finds itself in the position of having to deal with competition from eaglemoss …hence smaller figures.

  • CyberSlave2014

    January 22nd, 2014 - 4:04pm

    BooBoo any news on the 10th Doctor Suit (RARE) figure?

    • booboo

      no only what you see

  • CyberSlave2014

    January 22nd, 2014 - 4:03pm

    Cool. I really hope they release a 13 Doctors in 3.75. So that we can have all the classic doctors,john hurt and Capaldi.

  • Doctor Pug

    January 22nd, 2014 - 3:42pm

    I hope they do 3.75″ and 5″ classic figures.

  • Dalek the Supreme

    January 22nd, 2014 - 3:42pm

    As great as this looks, it makes me annoyed in two ways. The first as that there are STILL no signs of metallic New Paradigm Daleks being released in this new scale despite the fact that they are more relevant to the other characters in the line, and the second is that while this is clearly intended to be the Necros Imperial Dalek, it has the eyestalk of the Resurrection Renegade Daleks.

    • the paternoster gang

      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:44pm

      Apparently there will be no paradigm daleks unless they appear on tye show in greater quantities.

    • VespiformsSting

      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:49pm

      Surely youve had enough paradigm daleks now… Ive got wind up paradigms, a desk patrolling paradigm a torch paradigm a key ring paradigm and best of all a bargain lovely remote controlled 12 inch paradigm supreme courtesy of B & M – lets have stuff we havent had eh….like the glass dalek containing the mutating remains of arthur stengos….

    • Dalek the Supreme

      January 22nd, 2014 - 4:59pm

      The problem is that the Paradigm Daleks are the current model of Dalek alongside the Time War versions. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Supreme, Strategist, and Drone with the new metallic color and shortened rear-hatch. A glass Dalek would be cool, though.

    • Madmanwithabox

      January 22nd, 2014 - 10:52pm

      I agree, i’m getting sick of the bronze models

  • VespiformsSting

    January 22nd, 2014 - 3:39pm

    The Revelation dalek is 3.75 ?? But its excellent !! Does this mean classics at 3.75 ?? Because if it does perhaps we can look forward to classic stuff ( like the yeti) at this size that from the Hartnell to Pertwee eras that they never gave us as five inch and which eaglemoss arent producing either….. HerEs to 3.75 Krotons , Yeti, Quarks, Zarbi et al.


      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:42pm

      You’re quite right there, who (no pun intended)knows what we might be getting.

  • Trenzalore

    January 22nd, 2014 - 3:36pm

    I thought classic figures would still be in 5″? It looks great but I personally feel it’s a little pointless. If this is a chase figure I will be very annoyed.

  • Anonymous

    That is a Necros Dalek.

    they are doing too many daleks they need to be doing madame vastra, jenny, whisperman, doctor simeon, the gunslinger, strax, snowman

    • booboo

      January 22nd, 2014 - 2:32pm

      Daleks sell, besides this is part of the heritage wave or whatever it is


      January 22nd, 2014 - 2:35pm

      They can produce as many Daleks as they like as far as I’m concerned, I just love them.

      Yes daleks rule so keep making them

    • Anonymous

      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:27pm

      hope they still do a range of characters because if they keep doing daleks it will get boring

    • VespiformsSting

      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:42pm

      3.75 classic cybermen please the Wheel in Space variant which has been ignored in the other set would be a good starter…..

    • The Other

      January 22nd, 2014 - 7:54pm

      The Daleks do seem to have monopolised the new figure range…
      But I LOVE Daleks!!!! 😀 😀 😀
      So they can carry on like this as far as I’m concerned; however, I would like to see an Emperor or Prime Minister to go with them seeing as they’re doing more accesories and bigger ‘toys’ to go with them
      BUT… I would like to see some more variety as well, such as The Wispermen, Doctor Simeon, The Paternoster Row Gang etc…

    • VespiformsSting

      January 22nd, 2014 - 8:05pm

      So how big would the Emperor (Evil version) need to be to match 3.75 daleks ?? I bet they could do all sorts in scale with 3.75 figures… A war machine wouldn’t need to be as big, neither would a complete drashig…. I think if they knuckle down the 3.75 classic range could be quite good….

  • drwhofan130

    January 22nd, 2014 - 2:24pm

    it looks brilliant, but I don’t think fans of the 5 inch figures are going to think the same


      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:17pm

      Give me 5inch any day !!.

    • VespiformsSting

      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:45pm

      I collected classic 5 inch and there simply werent enough of the figures I wanted and cost was always cited as the reason. If they now start to expand the 3.75 range to include all the classic aliens we should have had and theyre as good as the ice warrior and cyberman from the new series I say good luck to em – bring em on !!….

    • Dalek the Supreme

      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:45pm

      I don’t mind it too much with all the exciting releases, but I feel Underground Toys should still be able to make Classics and the occasional New Series figure for 5-inch collectors. I’m hoping for 3.75 inch Tom Baker, Elizabeth Sladen, and ‘Asylum’ Dalek Drone!

  • Exterminator

    January 22nd, 2014 - 2:22pm

    Another chase figure for the stockists to remove and sell on eBay for a fortune. 🙁


      January 22nd, 2014 - 2:37pm

      Agreed, they should do away with the whole chase/variant wave nonsense and produce equal numbers of all figures.

    • ahunter8056

      January 22nd, 2014 - 3:31pm

      I couldn’t agree more. Chase figures are a stupid idea.

    • Radburn

      January 22nd, 2014 - 4:40pm

      Totally agree! The Chase figures ARE pointless – The only winners with those were Stockists pulling them & Ebay scalpers – Both charging exorbitant prices! All that waffle from CO then they go & release the whole Chase set abroad. Why not just sell (14) figures? Most Collectors (Myself included) would snap up the full set, instead of all this messing about trying to get the full series…
