      From the leaks at toy fair, which I am assuming are the retail versions, I assume the doctor is leather coat & blue jumper from end of church and the start of space babies, and Ruby will be dot and bubble Ruby with her black jacket painted blue to match the ending of that story.

      Okay, just seen them. I’d guess they’d do a Legend Of Ruby Road 15th Doctor, considering, they could pretty much just re-use the 9th Doctor’s body again, I feel like.

      I had honestly thought it was fake, the image they put out is so badly done with the badges all different sizes and the wrong proportions. The Sonic itself is not much to shout about either unfortunately. Interested to see how they’ll tackle the variants though as there’s been several colours shown on screen.

    Need a little help I brought the really rare season 9 lately on cex but sadly it only arrived with the steelbook on its own and no j card or anything which was really upsetting is it better too keep till i can replace it next month or return now till another one comes in stock as the price has especially now gone up ?

      You can request a refund and send it back if you have recently received it. If you really want the j-card and all your other steelbooks have them I’d recommend that.

      Especially if you paid £400+ for it.

      Might also get a stand alone release seeing as unlike the other stories in the tales of the tardis they went so far to give it a new edit and effects. Similar sort of release to what daleks in colour got.

    So the Go Figure book is getting a stretch goal for a book covering micro universe, 10”, 12” and most importantly to me, time squad figures. Call me crazy but it’s a dream come true for my favourite obscure toy line to be getting coverage!

      This box set was never released and at the time contained some new figures which were then released in wave 2 and a B&M set except the victory Dalek which as far as i know is the only one to exist.

    • Judooning

      June 14th, 2024 - 6:53pm

      I wonder if this was a mock-up. Because it’s using the End of Time Packaging but with new era (at the time) series 5 characters included. And it says 12 to collect…even though you get all 12 in one go.
      And the Cyberman seems a mix of a series 2 “ghost” Cyberman, and a series 5/6 damaged Cybus Cyberman

    • booboo

      June 14th, 2024 - 7:03pm

      it was a mock probably pitched at Argos or toys r us at the time just using existing artwork, CO probably produced loads of stuff like this that wouldn’t normally never be seen, I never saw it but Wave 5 of Character building was done an dusted and ready to go they must exist somewhere and a few of the cancelled 3.75″ wave 5 destined for toy r us us ended up on ebay, i just missed out on those.

    • Mrs Croot

      June 14th, 2024 - 7:21pm

      Judooning, I think that cyberman is a damaged cyberman from doomsday, as in the equivalent of the 5” figure with destroyed legs and a destroyed arm. It would account for the damage to it and the transparent pieces are probably place holders for a sculpt that would remove them in their entirety.

    • 76 Totter’s Lane

      June 14th, 2024 - 8:48pm

      It’s the Cyberman from “The Pandorica Opens’ with the missing arm.

    • Judooning

      June 14th, 2024 - 9:18pm

      Ah yes! Good thinking there! I had every figure from this line back in the day. Got all 3 of the three packs plus the Master Build a figure wave and then the Capaldi/Smith era wave. Great figures. Hopefully we can get something similar for Ncuti’s Doctor one day

      Agreed bellal, that final scene in 2022 is made even more special now. Ian chesterton is still one of my favourite characters and the Romans is one of my favourite stories. I watched it last year and William and jaqueline hill are great in their scenes. Right. Tomorrow an Ian chesterton story. I’ll watch one and I think a target book is in order too. Gone but never to be forgotten.

    Ok. Slightly weird one.

    Does anybody by chance have “The Dalek Collection” DVD in their collection? (The 2006 Optimum / Studio Canal release with the grey Dalek on the front)

    If so, is Disc 2 faulty? I came by one a few weeks ago and Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 AD plays fine, but I noticed that the Dalekmania documentary is missing the whole bit with Michael Wisher at the cinema at the beginning (including the documentary’s opening titles). It jumps from the Lumiere logo straight to Roberta Tovey reading in the clip from the first movie.

    Admittedly it is a very clean cut, but it does shorten the documentary by approximately two minutes. Even more bizarrely, the time stamp jumps from about 23 seconds to 2 minutes, 11 seconds, and when I try to rewind it just gets stuck and refuses to go back!

    By pure chance, today I came by a second totally separate copy. I took a chance on it, only to find that this one once again plays the movie fine, but as soon as it loads it goes straight to the movie skipping both the copyright warnings and the disc menu!

    When I press the menu button on the remote, it does go to the menu and I can of course play the movie and go into scene selection, but when I click on Dalekmania, it plays the movie not the documentary!!!

    I can’t seem to find any info online, I’m genuinely puzzled. Is it possible that all these discs are faulty? I’ve never had two totally separate copies of a DVD both have similar problems.

    Also just wanted to add that both discs are free from dirt, scuffs and scratches. I have also thoroughly cleaned both but to no avail.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks. 🙂

    • Bookcollector

      May 24th, 2024 - 4:09pm

      Yes, the disc is faulty. You are better of getting the two newer individual releases as they feature the full (no faults) dalekmania documentary and some other bits not on the original DVD release or the grey release

    • Rex Farrel

      May 24th, 2024 - 4:26pm

      I remember the problem with Dalekmania, and also that even Kevin Davies was annoyed by it. I also remember that there were some quite outlandish theories going around… (It couldn’t just be a regular snafu for some people.)

      Unfortunately all the Dalek film discs had issues until the 2013 versions, but I’ve never heard about the problem with your second Optimum copy. It does sound like how a player tries to handle a faulty disc though – if the surface is fine then it could be a bad pressing, something during manufacture that affected the area with the menu structure.
