“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.

8th-doctor-3750

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.

      You have to call them. They will tell you if you can cancel. If item has already been packaged in their warehouse its too late ti cancel.

      You can email them it tells you on the website

      Yeah but I tried cancelling something by email and they claimed not to recieve it and still sent out item and charged me. Returned and got refunded in end but was a hassle. I strongly recommend calling them.

      I’ve emailed them loads of time and it’s been fine. Email here; sales@forbiddenplanet.co.uk
      And just put your name, day of order, order number, and the date.

      But the only problem is, they probably won’t cancel or get back to you until Monday, so you’d probably just be better off phoning them

    Have ordered from TRU and cancelled my FP order. Getting a sneaky suspicion that FP will never actually receive a shipment of these.

      Not as good as it could be. I managed to pick up two at the Stockport branch on Friday. The only reason I *got* two was because of ongoing concerns about the qc. Both figures had paint marks on the face. Not so much of a problem, I’ve learnt how to get rid of them with a Swarfega wipe over my fingernail. But on one figure there’s a line/groove on the cheek coming out from the mould line, as if it’s been gripped by a metal tool whilst the plastic was still soft. On the other figure, the paint wash on one leg is noticeably lighter than on the other leg and the waist/crotch piece.

      If I could easily swap the heads round I’d have one near – perfect figure, but it’s worth pointing out that the head is NOT apparently designed to easily pop off, and the neckerchief appears to be glued to the torso in front. The base of the neck I think is too wide to fit through the neckerchief, so in order to swap heads it may be necessary to not only do a boil and pop, but also to cut the neckerchief loose…which I’m disinclined to try for now. It’s a great figure, but let down a little by the quality control standards. But I realise I’m lucky to have got hold of it considering the frustrating experience other people have had.

    I ordered mine through Forbidden Planet (UK) and what I wanna know is when these will be shipping. I’ve been looking forward to this figure and I don’t want to miss out like I did with The War Doctor (although I got one eventually even though I paid around £30 for it).

      Originally it was at the very end of this month, so not long soon 🙂 However it was taken off the website so the dates could have changed but because toys r us are getting stock forbidden planet should start to get stock soon as well.

    A few people I know (including me) managed to order some at about 8.00 AM but it was definitely showing out of stock again at 8.45 when a friend of mine tried to order.

      I can see many people have managed to order the 8th doctor early this morning

      An “in stock” email was went out at around 8am so presumably those who had signed up to that, or saw it here or on facebook took the initial batch very quickly

    If you look at on the page with the other collector figures it says its in stock, but when you click on the item, it’s actually out of stock. Have they already sold out in 3 hours? Or is the site just not working properly?
