    Out of curiosity, I know it’s a bit early to be asking this, but when can we might expect the second wave of this year’s B&M figures to be announced? November maybe?

      Probably around October

    I’ve ordered myself a couple of 5″ Scale 9th/10th Dr Sonic screwdriver accessories off Ebay. We just dont seem to be getting the sonics as accessories anymore and I think the Doctors, especially tennant, look rather bare without one in hand. What with the new 3pack not having any I’ve prepared myself in advance.
    I was hoping characters website might still have some in their spares and repairs section but looks like they’ve all gone.

    Can someone help me out with the big finish torchwoods.

    There’s a monthly range
    The series 5 and 6 i think?
    Then there’s torchwood soho does that link into the monthly range?

    And then dies torchwood one link into the torchwood series 5 and 6 with Yvonne Hartman? I’m so confused

    And is there anything else other than that?

    • BigBen64

      August 16th, 2022 - 2:52pm

      The Monthly Range takes place at various points in the Torchwood timeline.

      “Alien Among Us” (Series 5) and “God Among Us” (Series 6) are official continuations of the Torchwood TV series with new Torchwood members.

      Torchwood One is set before “Army of Ghosts”, with Yvonne and Ianto.

      The Yvonne from series 5/6 is from a parallel universe where she didn’t get turned into a cyberman.

      Torchwood Soho is 1950s Torchwood (with several related releases in the monthly range).

      And then there are some special releases from different points in the Torchwood timeline…

      Thanks for this, I’m sure the new guy from torchwood soho or whatever release is with Andy and this new guy, turns up in series 5 or 6 of post miracle day torchwood. So is there anything I need to to listen to first? Norton something?

      I also know Andy turns up in stranded as well buts a whole different can of worms to get my head round so I’m deleting that from my brain for now until I start to tackle the eighth Doctor saga

      And there’s a committee arc that goes through monthly range series 1 and 2 and ends in the torchwood archive if I’m correct?

    Tomorrow the Character toys website goes back live. Do you think it will bring with it a new online exclusive?

    • booboo

      August 14th, 2022 - 11:52am

      not heard anything, will be interest to see what took 2 weeks

      Maybe a brand new style to the website. It has been pretty similar for as long as I can remember

    • Anonymous

      August 15th, 2022 - 1:15pm

      From looking at it today it looks EXACTLY the same as before… not sure why it was down for so long?? nice to see that the Warriors of the Deep set is still sticking around for sale 🙂

    Just been reading that Issues 216-223 had made it into mass production. God only knows where all that stock will end up then if it is eventually sold off.

  • Adrian Taylor

    What happens if you’ve paid for an order and not received it?? £65.00 for an eagle one from space 1999 ordered at the beginning of may.

    • booboo

      August 13th, 2022 - 2:01pm

      go to whoever you paid by, bank, paypal, credit card and ask for a chargeback (or open a case if paypal), its less than 180 so you should have no issues getting your money back.

    I bought the Cyber King model and if arrived broken how do I get it replaced?

    • booboo

      August 12th, 2022 - 2:02pm

      depends where you bought it from

  • booboo

    I see Actions Figure Theatre is closing due to costs

    So if you want anything i would download it now

    • pupbenny

      August 12th, 2022 - 1:40pm

      Oh wow really!?!? Jeeze, that is really sad. Just looking at it’s homepage takes me back to my youth. I might download everything (at least in the 5″ range) just so it still exists and isn’t lost forever.

      Is that a micro collection dalek sec? Quite clever 🙂

    • booboo

    Erm, was there some sort of legal issue with Robert Banks Stewart creations? I’m only asking because all the Big Finish audios featuring Robert Banks Stewart creations (Zygons, Krynoids and that Fourth Doctor lost stories set) are unable to buy…

  • booboo

    August 10th, 2022 - 5:15pm

    Could do with the next collection set being announced right now….

      Indeed. I’d even settle for an announcement about a Season 8 Standard release. Anything!

    • The ergon

      August 11th, 2022 - 2:49pm

      I,m sure we,ll get the season 8 just before the next big collection announcement.

    • daz

      August 11th, 2022 - 7:16pm

      Must be due soon. Weird not having anything pre-ordered for Doctor Who though.

      I’m still hoping that Series 9 and 10 will get the steelbook treatment in style of 1-8 eventually.

      If Season 2 isn’t announced in the next week, I’ll eat my fez…

    • Gordon

      August 11th, 2022 - 9:50pm

      I take it booboo hasn’t received any press releases for the next set then. I’m sure they will announce it when the time is right. They definitely got stuff in the works as they were filming season 20 stuff at the weekend but that probably wont be out till next year

    • booboo

      August 11th, 2022 - 10:04pm

      They (BBC) seem to have stopped it, in the past we had embargoed stuff from them a few days before, that’s not been the case recently (not just us, everyone i think within reason).

      BBC Studios seem to want to announce everything themselves first now.

    • Gordon

      August 11th, 2022 - 11:13pm

      Probably fed up with all the leaks

    • booboo

      August 11th, 2022 - 11:18pm

      i dont think the people on “the list” would ever leak stuff, i dont recall any images or info getting leaked?, beside we still get “other” embargoed stuff.

      August 12th, 2022 - 2:46am

      I was thinking more of the early listings on Swiss dvd sites

    • booboo

      I see, a bit hard on those who behaved though, hoping for next week, thought it might be this week.

  • Coleman

    August 10th, 2022 - 11:25am

    Booboo, Can you put down a list of all the CO sets to be released this year. (Including the ones just shown). To give me an idea of what to Budget for.
    I’ve forgot some of them already.

    • booboo

      August 10th, 2022 - 11:44am

      1st Wave Expected late 2022

      8th Doctor 3 Figure Set

      9th Doctor 3 Figure Set
      13th Doctor 3 Figure Set
      Davros and Dalek Set

      Sets are now £21.99. The Electronic Tardis is listed at £32.99. Dalek and Davros set £24.99

      + Possibly another CO online exclusive.

    • pupbenny

      August 10th, 2022 - 12:45pm

      Out of curiosity, when you say ‘+ Possibly another CO online exclusive.’ is that just an assumption or is there something that’s directly suggested that?

    • booboo

      August 10th, 2022 - 12:50pm

      Press release for the Silurian set:

      Character Options announces its first online exclusive Doctor Who collector set of 2022

      suggesting there will be more than one (i thinks its more or less been confirmed on the alerwebb )

    • Coleman

      August 10th, 2022 - 12:51pm

      Thanks Booboo, I remember seeing them all listed ages ago but I couldn’t remember half of them, (I should have written them down)

    • booboo

      August 10th, 2022 - 12:54pm

      I have seen the Tardis might be £24.99 now suggesting it is no longer electronic, can’t confirm that though.

      There seems to be some last minuet changes to these sets.

  • TheFineLens

    August 9th, 2022 - 6:21pm

    Has anyone been following the Cybus Industries thing? Because they appear to be selling an exclusive Character Options figure set now

    • Dannyd

      August 9th, 2022 - 7:03pm

      The site doesn’t let you buy them… wonder if they are actually real or if it’s just a “fake” listing… the set does have Character’s gold “Limited Edition” sticker… but £65 for 3 Cybermen!!

      It could be the next CO Online Exclusive, as a tie-in to what is obviously a Marketing Campaign?

    Wasn’t there supposed to be some announcement at 10am or was that just nonsense?

    • booboo

      August 9th, 2022 - 11:24am

      Its around 2pm now assuming the images arrive in time

    • The ergon

      August 9th, 2022 - 11:30am

      Will the images appear here or by some unorthodox route?

    • booboo

      August 9th, 2022 - 11:41am

      here, as soon as i can get them on, you may see them elsewhere first though.

      its easy for forums and social media as they are user led and any number of people can just upload.

      websites like this have to resize images, write the article and then post it (and be sat by a computer to do it), that all takes time.
