    Has anyone mentioned a Foamasi as a possible figurine?

    This will be a nice addition. Ace was a great companion. Would like to have seen her with the baseball bat that she hit the Dalek with in Remembrance of the Daleks. However I guess this may have caused issues.

      Yeah your right, that Baseball Bat said he would never give his likeness rights out again after the cheque bounced that he was given by Character for their Ace figure.

    Set 11? I make this set 9…unless you are including the 2 Big Finish set. I see them as a seperate line, like the Time Lord Series.

      The 2 big finish sets are counted as companion sets

      So do I as the dalek isn’t a companion don’t know why they called them companion sets 9 & 10 anyway still waiting for set 1 & 9 to comeback into stock I had an email months back saying set 1 was back in when I checked it wouldn’t let me order it says not available but when it eventually did when went to basket it said set 2 Rose & 10

    Just a quick comment for the amazing Mr Neil Corry as it seems he’s still on here reading comments and replying to certain ones.

    First off I hope you know just how happy you make people with this collection. It’s the one thing I look forward to every month and I genuinely do hope it can continue for a very long time (or at least for as long as possible.) It’s a phenomenal collection and in my opinion the best figurine collection Eaglemoss/Hero Collector has ever done. The little spin off box-set additions and consoles just add to and embellish this collection perfectly.

    Was there always a plan to do two doctor variants in the main collection and one in a companion set or is that something that is worked out as the collection continues? Are there more plans for doctor variants in the main collection of it continues past 200 issues?

    Always appreciate hearing from you and your input and I hope you know how much gratitude there is from all of us spoilt, and sometimes demanding collectors, we appreciate your work soooooooooo so much. Keep up the great work Neil and all the best. Very excited for the future.

    This looks great! Been a while really since anything 7th doctor related has been released so very happy to see this! (Oh and I know people are going to tell me this so yes I am aware of big finish and I am sure they have done something 7th doctor related in the last few months!!!!) But any way these look great and it’s been a while since I picked up an eaglemoss set do I may get this. My only problem would be with the paint application as I have seen some not great looking 1st doctor sets recently so I am a bit nervous. Oh and I mean that as no disrespect to the talented people behind these sets as I understand how hard it is to do so much detail on such a tiny scale.

    These figurines look really good. I think the figurine of Ace might be the best companion figurine yet!

    I’m hoping for the following to be produced before the series ends

    1. Terileptil Android from The Visitation, (without the Grim Reaper disguise).
    2. Servo Robot from The Wheel in Space.
    3. Damaged Cyberman from the Five Doctors (spear through arm, chest unit on fire)
    4. First Doctor popping out from inside a Dalek (from The Space Museum)
    5. Caillech from The Stones of Blood
    6. More fourth doctor costume variants would be welcome (Zygons, Talons, Ribos operation)
    7. Kamelion from The King’s Demons.
    8. The Ergon from Arc of Infinity.

    I hope we see a trial of a timelord set that has
    Sixth doctor (mindwarp)
    Peri (the mysterious planet)
    Glitz (the ultimate foe)
    Mel (terror of the vervoids)

      Neither was the two Daleks in the previous companion sets. He’s a recurring character, that’s good enough for me.

      The Big Finish sets aren’t strictly companion sets.

      I was just watching Dragonfire last night (inspired to re-watch by the upcoming special – not seen it in years) and it struck me, an ‘Allies of the Doctor’ side line – for interesting characters that were not strictly speaking companions – like Glitz, Amelia Rumford (oh go on, that’d be so much fun), Garron and Unstoffe etc – that could be quite interesting

      Prefer a Doc, Nyssa, Tegan, Turlough. The outfits are better and Adric is a pain.

    • The Ergon

      July 7th, 2020 - 9:04pm

      Hes a pain but with the badge included is as iconic and very much in line with the rest of those bad eighties oufits and costumes.

      July 7th, 2020 - 9:36pm

      If like with the 13th doctor companions set, the characters costumes weren’t limited to one story I’d like to see:
      6, peri and mel from various trial of a time lord parts
      5 (coatless with cricket bat), adric, nyssa and tegan from various
      5, turlough and kamelion from kings demons
      4 (talons) with leela (face of evil)
      4 (ark in space) with harry
      3, jo (3 doctors) , Benton and Yates from various
      3, liz (spearhead) and the brigadier (daemons) from various
      Victoria and zoe with a salamander 2nd doctor as it’s technically a variant and a new villain at the same time for a season 5 set
      1 in Cape with dodo, ben and polly for a war machines set
      1, vicki and Steven
      10 (blue suit and coat), Martha and Donna from various as a series 4 set
      11 and rory from let’s kill Hitler
      12 and Clara from face the raven
      12 and nardole from twice upon a time

    • Neil

      July 8th, 2020 - 11:40am

      JL! The 13th Doctor set is the exception. Otherwise they’re tied to stories. That decision was made right at the start.

    • JL

      July 8th, 2020 - 12:54pm

      Whoops my bad Neil! If I may ask, are big finish sets with other doctors possible i.e. for the third doctor, the story primord features the 3rd doctor, liz, jo and the brigadier? Is this a possibility?

    • Neil

      July 8th, 2020 - 2:47pm

      JL: It’s a no. Sorry.

      After a 6 and Peri, and 5 with Tegan and Nyssa, wouldn’t mind seeing the War Doctor get a companion set with Clara or perhaps Billie as the Moment. Technically not companions but could be a vehicle to get Clara out without repeating 11 or 12 plus another John Hurt figurine. The sculpts of the doctors keep getting better and better!

    Well look at those…fantastic! One of the nicest companion sets so far I think.

    I hear rumours that clearance has been sought for a Taran Wood Beast…how brilliant if (a very big if) it’s true as only this collection would even think of doing something like that.

      Got to appreciate and champion the underdog monsters as well. And besides Eaglemoss often improve how they look as opposed to their tv appearances.

      Still no approval on the Taran Wood Beast. Sad times.

    • Jason Z

      July 8th, 2020 - 1:22pm

      Er… my stepmother (Doreen James) did the costumes for the Androids of Tara and so may have designed the Taran Wood Beast. Mind you she also did City of Death, before anyone criticises her monsters (I’ve seen the original sketch for Scaroth). If she’s being obstructive about the Taran Wood Beast then let me know and I’ll have a word. 🙂

    • Jordan9364

      July 8th, 2020 - 2:45pm

      Oh no I was looking forward to the Taran Wood Beast. Although that would be amazing if it is actually her and she can be persuaded

    • Bobby Davros

      July 8th, 2020 - 5:34pm

      I presume he means the writer David Fisher. The costume designer would just be an employee of the BBC with no IP rights of their own.

    • Doug Who

      July 8th, 2020 - 8:52pm

      Jason Z what a fantastic connection!

      I think the Jagaroth is a great monster in a fantastic story. It would be fascinating to know how different the design drawing was for Scaroth. Some of June Hudson’s early designs for the Nimon are wonderful…

      Shame about the Taran Wood Beast…hope it’s still a possibility down the line.

    • Dave

      August 10th, 2020 - 1:19pm

      EagleMoss produced the Scaroth from City of Death, which was written by David Fisher. So I don’t know if the Fisher estate may be holding back on the Taran Wood Beast?

    They look great. But I’ve been waiting for some big announcement pic like they used to do, instead stuff appears to be just leaked slowly from websites etc. This is fine but I like the excitement of seeing a bunch of new stuff at once. Why no announcements on Twitter etc any more?

      that stopped ages ago because they wanted to try i different way which seems to have stopped as well, they are now announcing stuff on Hero collector, their own website, but not this for some reason.

      personally im just not in favour of this “join the waitlist” thing.

      Looks brilliant. Not everyone’s favourite era but it is one of mine! One of the things I like about the Figurine Collection is that is isn’t afraid to show all eras some love in what they cover – I mean whoever thought we’d get such Hartnell deep-cut choices as Koquillion or The Monk? And yet we have, and they’re great. The Ace figure is one of those that will very much live or die by the paint job on the mass produced article in-hand, but to be fair, they’ve sometimes knocked some very tricky paint apps out of the park – the detailing on the Eric Roberts Master’s robes, or the Capaldi console are recents example of that.
