“I love humans. Always seeing patterns in things that aren’t there.”

The Eighth Doctor was an effortlessly charming, romantic figure. He was unguarded about his background and equally candid about what the future held for people he came into contact with.

Includes..

  • Sonic Screwdriver Accessory
  • Karn Chalice Accessory (Cup O’ Karn)
  • Cass’s Bandolier Accessory (removable)

It seems ironic that so much about this open Doctor remains a closed book…His first adventure took place in San Francisco at the turn of the Millennium with Dr Grace Holloway and Chang Lee in an epic battle with the Master.

8th-doctor-box7501

Much later, after many adventures with many companions, the 8th Doctors fate is finally sealed during the Time War, as he attempts to rescue a pilot, Cass, whose ship was crashing into the planet Karn.

When Cass realized that the Doctor was a Time Lord and her enemy, she refused his help and allowed the ship crash.

      Still says Delivery = Sorry, this item is out of stock for delivery
      and when I go to click and collect and enter postcode – all local stores say out of stock

      False Alarm??

      I’ve found when looking at all the listings of the 5.5″ collector series, it says it’s in stock for delivery, then open the listing to find it says it’s unavailable and has that tab to request notification when it is in stock

      Showing as no stock where I am. I need this figure badly!

    I now wish I took the gamble and held out for TRU. I ordered 2 from FP becuase I didnt want the stress/risk that comes with TRU. Just hoping FP start dispatching next week.

    I think this looks far better with the 8th head that came with the war doctor, the paint apps and detail are far better

    Re. Stockport TRU:
    They were supposed to be in stock in Stockport yesterday, so I went there but they hadn’t arrived (some problem to do with delivery).
    Got a text alert at 8 this morning to say they were in stock so I reserved one.
    Then got an email at 11 to say my order was cancelled and they don’t know when they’ll be in!!
    Have they actually made them???

      I had a similar situation at Poole TRU. Said they had them in stock and clicked and went to collect. Only to be told the system said they had 6 but they could find no trace of them.
      Left a LITTLE disappointed.

      That’s terrible. Toys r us have been a bit shambolic with their service lately. What with this and all the orders that got ‘lost on the system’ on the 6th November.

      November 21st, 2015 - 11:23pm

      The whole thing has been a shambles, most of the toys r us stores don’t stock the 5 inch figures. I don’t know why they are advertising them when most stores don’t have them. Plus the problems with internet ordering.

    Why are these figures so hard to come by? Do CO want to sell them? The same has been for certain waves of the 3.75 figures. Have toy shops just lost faith in this company? I got the alert from TRU this morning saying in stock but can you find one – no. Why does this have to such a pain every time. It takes the fun out it.

      I have seen two sellers on ebay selling them so must be that ebayers are getting in quicker and not giving anyone the chance 🙁

      No nothing in Plymouth went in their on Thursday, in fact no new 5″ their Dr Who section is very dismal just a few 3.75 figures! Ordered the flight control tardis and Amy Pond on their website as free delivery so saves me another wasted trip! Also pre ordered 8th Dr on FB ages ago so hopefully this will still come!

    I would have to say this is going to be one of my favorite doctor who action figures, right next to my regenerated 4th doctor in frilly turquoise shirt and blue colin baker! Now AL just needs to make: Susan, Jamie, Victoria, zoe, Liz, Nyssa, Tegan, Adric, Mel, and Any of the 8th doctor companions and I will be like stupid happy!
