San Diego Comic Con SDCC 2017

Its that time of year again with SDCC 2017 about to start

Wednesday sees previews night between 6-9 pm, that’s 2-5am in the morning for people in the UK.

From what we can see so far nothing new apart from the already announced Titans, Clara Funko and a few mugs and T shirts will be on show that night.

It starts in full on Thursday at 9.30am which is 5.30pm in the UK so no late night waiting for any information.

If anything is on show it should soon become clear.

Seven20life (the new name for Underground Toys USA) have said they will have Doctor Who products on show but we do not know if there will be anything new, they will have some exclusives, some will be Doctor Who related it seems.

It will be interesting to see what they have done with “The Wheel in Space”, Animated of telesnaps?

We also know there will be a Christmas Special preview but it remains to be seen if anyone else will get to see it!

    Has there been any confirmations regarding the Wheel in Space announcement?

    Was it annimated?

    Tried the Britbox link but it advises that it’s not available in this Country

      They said on twitter that they’ve got no figures there and the only thing seen at their stand related to Doctor Who is a mug. I don’t know if they’ve got more stuff to show that isn’t for sale though but it seems as though Doctor Who won’t have much of a presence.

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2017 - 6:14pm

      I think for now everyone should see them as a new company that doesn’t have any involvement with the figures

    • TheAgeOfUltron

      July 20th, 2017 - 6:09pm

      Character and Sevenlife (or whatever it’s called) need to just let go of the Doctor Who license they are just ruining it.

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2017 - 6:13pm

      they (Character) just renewed it, and UT (seve20life never had it)

    • TheAgeOfUltron

      July 20th, 2017 - 6:16pm

      I know but it is just annoying about how they keep pushing Doctor Who as far back as they can.

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2017 - 6:17pm

      its frustrating i know but they have to adjust to demand which isn’t great right now, and we do have new stuff coming this year and probably a big re-launch next year

    • DoctorSong2016

      July 20th, 2017 - 6:16pm

      In fairness they are doing the best they can with a trade that is no longer successful. Hey don’t just avoid making certain figures because they’re useless, I’m sure they’d love to make all the figures that the fans want but at the end of the day they need to make a profit and making figures that they know won’t sell very well will not help. Their biggest flaw is really just the lack of communication and timings of releases but it’s not a surprise that they don’t communicate with all the backlash they get when they do.

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2017 - 6:21pm

      there are ways, Eaglemoss do a great job, but you have to have consistency, and products to communicate about!

  • DoctorSong2016

    July 20th, 2017 - 4:58pm

    I reckon if we don’t see anything later tonight then there won’t be anything at all. People always suggest that they might put stuff out later but that’s never the case. We’ll just have to wait and see if anything crops up at the stall.

      The UK probably are, the USA who knows

      Underground toys have for the last few years Co-funded the 5″ figures that’s why they mostly first appeared at SDCC.

      This year the company split up with funko owning the UK decision and UT USA changing their name to seven20life

      At that point its seems they cancelled figures / sets that Character had already put into production and presumably severed ties.

      If that it still the case any future figures will be sold by Character to the UK market. presumably until/if a USA distributor is found they wont find their way to the USA.

      Okay thank you for the info, do you know if we’ll be seeing it at SDCC and if so when?

      July 20th, 2017 - 5:20pm

      Only If Pearl shows it herself, but then if its not going to turn up in the USA anytime soon that might not be wise

      Character have no representation in the USA

      if its telesnaps then they might do box sets eventually, but there are many episodes that dont have very much if any so dont know what they would do with those.

      assuming recovering lost episodes has all but dried up up least we may get every story on our DVD shelves now

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2017 - 9:27am

      Take a trip back in time to Doctor Who’ s classic era. Peter Davison (the Fifth Doctor), Colin Baker (the Sixth Doctor), and Sophie Aldred (Ace) look back on the original run of the world’s longest-running sci-fi television show. The session, moderated by Nerdist’s Kyle Anderson, will also have a sneak peek at the newly reconstructed lost episode of the Second Doctory story “The Wheel in Space,” coming soon exclusively to BritBox, the digital streaming service with the most comprehensive collection of British programming—and home of Classic Doctor Who on SVOD—in the U.S.

      You cant access britbox from the UK https://www.britbox.com/ so remains to be seen if we ever get to see it in the UK

    • LastOfTheSonics

      July 20th, 2017 - 4:20pm

      That’s annoying. No offence to any Americans, but it really should be released in the UK first considering that this is the home of Doctor Who, and for England as a whole it’s the flagship TV show.

      Yes I know the team working on it are probably American, but it should be a team in our country reconstructing it.

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2017 - 4:43pm

      was probably destined for the BBC store, they cant do netflix, Amazon or itunes because they are all worldwide so would conflict with britbox

      i think we will it one way of another

      they have “restored” it for the USA market on Britflix and they intend to do all of the lost episodes eventually.

      We do not know what “restored” means, either by telesnaps or animation but they are showing one episode at SDCC so we will find out.

      We also dont know where the UK fits in, if it does at all.

      it may mean we do get every story officially on DVD eventually but if its just telsnaps there are already unofficial ones around
