    Random question but does anyone know why some of the black and white figures (1st doctor and dalek and 2nd doctor and cyberman) are comic con exclusives because i own both of them now but they are not comic con exclusives (i.e they don’t have the comic con sticker and they don’t have a limited edition number), I guess what im trying to say is it a similar situation that happened with the time crash set where that was comic con exclusive but uk only got 100 of them

      Their was so many sets that were sold at comic Con In America as exclusives.
      The rest (normal versions) were sold at shops like Forbidden Planet in the UK.

      The B&W figures like many sets back then were sold outside of SDCC by FP international or FP before that stopped in the UK, I think there were 1250 of each set.

      The UK100 set was sold via CO in the UK, you had to phone them to order it

      It makes me feel sick to my stomach that at the time, I managed to get the numbered SDCC versions of both black and white sets…and I tore the boxes open and threw the packaging away. If only I knew back in the day.

    Hi booboo, you must be sick of B and M related questions so apologies, but what do you expect / think we might get this year? Obviously not the completely specific contents, but which doctors / era’s do you think we’ll get? I’d like a 10 set, maybe the dark blue shirt variant, I’d love to see an Eighth doctor set as well with his Night of the Doctor costume but I believe that’s unlikely

    At this time all we can do is speculate but if anyone has any sets they’d really like, realistic and non-realistic then feel free to reply and we can see what pops up and what doesn’t! 🙂

      My top 10 predictions for what is most likely across the eras are:

      Ian, Barbara, Susan
      Polly, Ben, Tenth Planet Cyberman
      Jamie, Zoe, Ice Warrior
      Liz, Auton variants x2
      Adric, Earthshock Cyberman X2
      Tegan, Nyssa, Ainley Master
      8th, Lucie, Zygon
      Clara, Rose (Moment), Osgood
      Vastra, Jenny, Strax
      Dhawan Master, Ruth Doctor, 13th

      After the release of the Silver Nemesis and Two Doctors sets a couple years back I don’t think we’ll get a 6th or 7th era 3-pack again this time around, the same for 4th era after the releases last year. The 3rd era only gets a prediction because it is possible we might get a Liz to finish off that period.

      Of these, considering the way B&M sets have gone lately, I think the most likely will be the 5th Doctor era packs and maybe the 13th era set alongside.

      The least likely from these guesses would probably be the 8th era set and the Paternoster Gang, but we can only hope!

      I’ve still got fingers crossed for a re-release of the 1st Doctor and TARDIS from An Unearthly Child as well, even better if in Black and White, but suspect we may get a 7th Doctor in that release this time.

      It’s always fun to see what comes along in the end, so long as they are as good as last year’s releases I’m sure we’ll all be happy.

      Tenth planet cybermen could be released in a first doctor or twelfth doctor set, I’d really like a 5th doctor and earthshock cybermen but I don’t know how likely that is considering we got one in “the monsters” pack, albeit as an attack of the cybermen one

      Not sure why we couldn’t get a “time war” or even “time lord victorious” pack, with 8 from NOTD , 9 and 10 with a dark blue shirt, or even just one doctor and 2 bronze Daleks

      Companions of the 1st Dr set: Ian, Barbara & Suzan

      Revenge of the Cybermen set: Cyberman, Cyber Leader & Harry Sullivan variant

      13th Dr Adventure set: Captain Jack Harkness, Corroded Cyberguard with Preacher gun, 13th Dr variant (Blue top, without bum bag)

      History of the Daleks set #5: Evil of the Daleks – Emperor Guard Dalek & Standard Drone Dalek

      History of the Daleks set #6: Planet of the Daleks – Antilight reflective Dalek & Supreme Dalek

      TARDIS set: 1st Dr (Unearthly Child) with TARDIS

      Robot set (acting as a 2nd TARDIS set but gives more variety): 4th Dr Season 12 & K1 Robot

    • Doctor…Who?

      April 18th, 2021 - 8:23pm

      thought up an entire Season 12 based B&M wave, completely hypothetical seeing as one or two of the sets are basically impossible to create.

      Season 12 Villains- Set 1:
      K-1 Robot,
      Davros,
      Cyberman

      Season 12 Villains-Set 2:
      Styre,
      Genesis Dalek,
      Cyberleader

      The Ark in Space deluxe figure set-
      Wirrn and
      Nerva Beacon outfit Sarah Jane

      Season 12 TARDIS crew-
      4th Doctor in red jacket- hatless head,
      Sarah Jane- Genesis jumper outfit,
      Blazer Harry Sullivan

      Season 12 TARDIS set-
      Jacketless 4th doctor in pully and
      Small base, small roof TARDIS

      April 19th, 2021 - 9:52pm

      For two of the sets i,m going to predict for wave 1:
      Tegan, Nyssa and either Adric/5th doctor Regenerated (castrovalva set)
      Second Doctor (Fur coat), Jamie and Victoria (the Web of Fear)
      and subsequant HOTD sets and any TARDIS.
      I would like to be surprised with a monster set as well.
      A second wave could so easily change Tegan and nyssas outfits from Season 20.

    • prototype dalek

      April 20th, 2021 - 10:11am

      Well for a period of time some of the sets were listed on the B&M systems at most stores, so not really a great idea to put unconfirmed sets on the system for all to see if anyone asks.

    • The ergon

      April 20th, 2021 - 12:21pm

      Seeing what was put on the list, i,m hopeful for at least an adric or tegan. I would definitely like one or two of fifths companions.l,m hyped for a fewof those 60s sets if confirmed.

      Wait, so that B&M product codes leak was genuine? CO really don’t have luck with leaks, do they? Still, that’s atleast one B&M set I’ll be picking up. Can’t wait to see what the set contents actually are!

    • booboo

      April 20th, 2021 - 6:16pm

      All i do know is that (many) people who phoned head office with the product codes were told said items were “on the system”

      In the interest of CO I have blocked numerous posts with the set names and product numbers but cant do anything about head office more or less “confirming it”

      All i hope is these sets dont turn up on ebay as last year confirming the contents.

      It wasn’t necessarily a leak in the traditional sense, but just that they were put on the shop system’s for all to see if anyone asked about them and head office just acknowledge if anyone asked as well. So it was more of a case of no one passing on the message that no one was supposed to know yet.

    • booboo

      CO should put more stringent measures in place to prevent this happening before an unveiling. They know how popular these sets are, Leaks will get out and the word spreads like wildfire. If the images do show up, people will want to see them. It would just be nice just for once to see the official video come first.

      yeti, possibly,but in the dream set ( to many anyway) of a Fur Coated Troughton and Jamie, then perhaps an add on “army builder” pack of 2 yeti with slight variations.

      The yeti is however a big chunk of plastic so cost maybe an issue now

    • Who Knows

      April 13th, 2021 - 3:23pm

      The perfect army builder would be the inclusion of a generic soldier from story to recreate the episode 4 ambush sequence in Covent Garden – Character could get the most out of the new sculpts from the recent B&M “Claws of Axos” set.

      Perhaps the online exclusive with a dark haired yeti & soldier, then a B&M release with a light haired yeti & Leftbridge Stewart. The yeti robots do look great in monochrome – a return of the “black & white “series would be welcome.

      I think that something such as a Nightmare or a Wheel Cyberman, or a “proper” outfit Ainley Master would go down pretty well as an online exclusive. Like, those are pretty sought after from what I know. Jamie is also a good bet. We’ll have to see if they come out with any more exclusives.

      Nightmare Cyberman should be a good option as several variants possible and army builder + CAD (if not tooling) already exists

    I’m always curious as to why we didn’t get more variants of doctors, for example 10 and 12, to paint twelve with a different colour jacket or hoodie would have been very little change to character and can’t have cost them much more to make, the same with 10, can’t understand why we only got the one shirt colour or never got the black converse with the brown suit like from the impossible planet / Satan pit, granted these are minor differences but they’d still sell surely? And at little to no extra cost to make

      As the 5.5″ range is very much in B&M’s ball park the moment they will have made a judgment over the last few years as to what works well for them, and i suspect its very firmly “classic”.

      The “toy buyers” at the peak with the 10th Doctor have long gone and guranteed sales are now more or less in the hands of long term loyal collectors.

    A while back I mentioned that I was looking into sourcing plastic covers for the Limited Edition Seasons.

    I’ve now got some I’m happy with and want to share info and photo’s of mine on here.

    If okay with you I’ll send it via email and if you want it can be used as an update to the Season 24 page or it’s own feature.

    I will say that as I display my sets with covers on view they may not be suitable for those who place them on shelf like a book. As the width is wider but will work with larger sets from 60’s.

    Thanks.

      Will be sending email and info once I get round to taking photo’s. They are £4 each but worth it in my opinion.

      The size I opted for is 18.3 x 15.3 x 6.3cm. Which is why not suitable if placing them on shelf like a book

      Saw a Harlequin Silver Ingot on ebay for £230 recently. Also saw the 11th. Steiff Bear for £800 as well. I can’t remember the original price for the Ingot I think is was about £60 & I seem to remember the bear was about £250-£300. The Silver Ingot release was only about 15 buyers from the 100 available & the Bear was supposedly only 5,000 made, but ended up dropping to 750 from Danbury Mint’s original Orders.

    It is funny about all this talk about Condo/Colin Fay as I am trying to create for my own pleasure and amusement and boredom a biography about Colin Fay. I know about what he was in and that he was an opera singer, and recently purchased the Brain of Morbius DVD merely for the special features. However, I do not know much else about him, e.g. his height, when and where he was born and when and where he died. Does anyone know anything? If so, please let me know? Also merchandise wise does anybody know about what kind of special features could be done for the season 13 collection blu ray boxset?

    Hey there! Have you heard of anything new for the Classic Series Original Television Soundtrack albums? I recently heard a rumour from a friend, that ‘The Trial of a Time Lord’ (The Mysterious Planet, Mindwarp, Terror of the Vervoids & The Ultimate Foe) by Dominic Glynn, Richard Hartley & Malcolm Clarke is next.

    That would cover a 6th Doctor Story (or should I say full series!) but we still don’t have a released soundtrack for the 3rd Doctor (The Silurians, Inferno, The Mind of Evil, The Sea Devils, The Mutants & Death to the Daleks being the only fully surviving scores) and the last lot was over a year ago

      I haven’t heard anything, sorry, but the Trial of a Time Lord idea is a good bet. As for a 3rd Doctor one, I’m thinking maybe The Silurians . But there’s no telling if we’re right or wrong until they’re revealed.

      April 10th, 2021 - 6:46pm

      For a 3rd Doctor score, it’s hard to say. From the recent releases of Score releases, it seems like they are avoiding repeating composers. So taking that into consideration, that would scratch off The Mind of Evil & The Mutants by Dudley Simpson & Tristram Cary as they have already had releases with The Daleks & The Sun Makers (and if The Trial of a Time Lord is goings to be next, then The Sea Devils won’t be released next as they are both by Malcolm Clarke). Also, Inferno’s score is made up of Stock Music and I think they would want to release composed scores first before Stock Scores. That only leaves The Silurians & Death to the Daleks, both by Carey Blyton

    • The Evil Dalek

      April 11th, 2021 - 6:46am

      Great scores yes, but they are from the 4th Doctor’s Era who has already had a score released (last year). However, if there is a second run of Classic Soundtrack scores, I am hoping for a rerelease of Geoffrey Burgon’s score for Terror of the Zygons (with all the tracks this time, bonus cut tracks, Special Sounds and the bagpipe music from Part 1 by Bob Murphy) to represent the 4th Doctor’s Era for that run

    • the ergon

      April 11th, 2021 - 10:09am

      Burgons scores are so haunting and unlike any scores assosciated with Doctor Who and sound as though they could have been created for some other drama or Genre.
      Any bonus tracks including Murphys Bagpipe music would be warmly welcomed. Anything that adds or enhances the original release.

    • The Evil Dalek

      April 12th, 2021 - 5:28am

      Agreed. Terror of the Zygon’s score by Burgon is my favourite 4th Doctor Score. It’s so atmospheric and different to any other score except Seeds of Doom (which is also fantastic but drags a bit). I am hoping for recreations of isolates scores which no exist, like The Savages, The War Games & Genesis of the Daleks and that might be a possibility as Mark Ayers did recreate Mindwarp’s score, along with Richard Hartley (the only lost 80s score) but I think they would want to push back until they have released all the fully surviving 60s & 70s scores at least (The Edge of Destruction, The Web Planet, The Space Museum, The Time Meddler, Galaxy 4, Mission to the Unknown, The Daleks’ Master Plan, The Massacre of St Bartholomew’s Eve, The Gunfighters, The War Machines, The Tenth Planet, The Highlanders, The Moonbase, The Faceless Ones, Tomb of the Cybermen, The Abominable Snowmen, Enemy of the World, The Web of Fear, Fury from the Deep, The Wheel in Space, The Dominators, The Mind Robber, The Seeds of Death, The Silurians, Inferno, The Mind of Evil, The Sea Devils, The Mutants, Death to the Daleks, Revenge of the Cybermen, Terror of the Zygons, The Seeds of Doom & Shada)

    I have some B a fan set ideas and would like to know what anyone thinks of them, which ones are likely and unlikely and what sets you would add. I am aware that some are very costly to make so unlikely.
    Enemies of the First Doctor set: Zarbi, Mechanoid and War Machine
    Companions of the First Doctor set 1963: Ian, Barbara and Susan
    Enemies of the Second Doctor set: Abominable Snowmen Yeti, Wheel in Space Cyberman and Kroton
    Companions of the Second Doctor Set 1966: Ben, Polly and Jamie
    History of the Daleks sets 5 and 6
    History of the Daleks set 1.2: 1963 Daleks with 3 and 4 numbered lines on back
    Three Doctors set: See the 0doctorwho0 video(And maybe subscribe)
    Third Doctor and Bessie set from the Daemons
    Fifth Doctor Tardis interior
    Ice Warrior set 1: Isbur, Sskkel and Skaldak
    Ice Lord set: Slaar, Izlyr and Azaxyr
    Day of the Daleks set: Jo, Controller and Ogron with pistol
    Terror of the Autons set: Master in suit with troll doll and two Flower Autons
    Brain of Morbius set: Solon, Condo with knife as well as holster ability like Leela and Sarah Jane.

      I think companions of the 1st and 2nd doctors (bar Jamie) are feasible with minimal new tooling possibly on a B&M budget, Jamue would probably have to be an online Character Options exclusive with extra funding for new parts such as the kilt and legs, the History of the Daleks sets seem very likely to continue, the Terror of the Autons set Daffodil Autons and Ogron seem quite feasible with new head sculpts and or torso wraps. Unfortunately, a lot of the other ideas seem quite unlikely either due to minimal demand on a general market to divert funds into (i.e. Solon and Codon) or generally too expensive on a B&M budget but could perhaps be online exclusives if Character see potential one day (i.e. 2013 Ice Warrior, Classic Tardis, Bessie at a push). Having not had many 60s who enemies other than Daleks, Cybermen, Roboman, Mechanoid, Ice Warriors, it’s probably unlikely we’ll see any new foes, personally I think a lot could be achieved using new sculpting on an axon man figure – Sensorites and Voord could be feasible with new lower leg tooling, hands and a new head, perhaps even a Chameleon or an Ice Lord from Monster of Peladon could be achieved, my most ambitious want myself would be a Nimon, a new robe piece, head sculpt, lower legs and hands on an axon man figure could achieve a rough approximation, but the limit there would most likely be costs out weighing potential profit for Character. I think their focus will predominantly be on Characters or Villains that could be achieved with at most new head sculpts and or torso wraps, but who knows…

    • TimelordTim

      April 8th, 2021 - 10:39am

      Going by the recent releases I think new companions are most likely, maybe with the occasional re-release of monsters, some possible ideas:

      Ian, Barbara, Susan
      Polly, Ben, Tenth Planet Cyberman
      Jamie, Zoe, Ice Warrior
      Liz, Auton variants x2
      Adric, Earthshock Cyberman X2
      Tegan, Nyssa, Ainley Master
      8th, Lucie, Zygon
      Clara, Rose (Moment), Osgood
      Vastra, Jenny, Strax
      Dhawan Master, Ruth Doctor, 13th

      I don’t know how feasible some of these are but I think this is the sort of direction we can hope for from the B&M range, alongside the HotD sets and TARDIS packs of course.

      I’d really like to see more new monsters (Mara, Ice Lord, Tzim-Sha, Skithra Queen, Movellan, classic Silurian, modern Cybermen variants are top of my wishlist) but not sure how feasible they are on budgets. Maybe a few will appear online though.

    • Dancing Auton

      April 8th, 2021 - 11:50am

      Quite possibly. I think companions sets, UNIT sets and 13th Doc sets are likely due to the format.

      For the Dalek sets, they could easily do Dalek Sec in the revised sculpt and with a normal bronze Dalek, sell it as a cult of skaro pack, they have the tooling and it’d be nice to get a newer sculpt Dalek Sec considering it was only released in the USA

      I’d really like them to do a Kerblam man, a Three Doctors Brigadier could be adapted with a new torso wrap and a new head and hands sculpt could be added, feasible enough for a B&M set, the same way we got Benton and Yates in 2020. I think the Mickey Smith figure with a new torso wrap could achieve both Ben and Adric figures, Jo Grant could be used for Polly or Liz – her Claws of Axos figure for a Faceless Ones Polly or her 3 Doctors figure for a Tenth Planet variant of Polly or a Silurians Liz. Toby Zed figure for a Celestial Toymaker Steven, Coatless Ace for a Toymaker Dodo. Zoe in her sparkly jumpsuit using a Leather Jacket Martha figure, An Abominble Snowmen Victoria using a new wrap on a Monster of Peladon Sarah Jane variant figure, Turlough and Ian using an appropriate suited figure, Mel in her Vervoids jumpsuit using a Helen Cutter Primeval figure, Nyssa from Mawdryn Undead using a new torso wrap on a Leela figure, if the budget was there a new wrap on the figure used for Yaz for Nyssa’s Velvet costume as a rough approximation, A season 20 Tegan could easily be made using a Peri figure but I’d love to see her in her Hostess outfit or something from Season 21

      Would you say Condo is about 6 foot 7?

  • Pesky Sontaran

    April 6th, 2021 - 8:28am

    I have been wondering. If character options need to measure actors to get there measurements right for a figure, how would they do dead people? For example if they did a Brain of aMorbius set featuring Sarah Solon and Condo, how would they know Phillip Madoc and Colin Fay’s height? Does anyone hear even know how tall they were?

    • Doctor Stu

      April 6th, 2021 - 10:20am

      Do they even go that in depth anymore? Wouldn’t be surprised if they just guessed by what they see on screen. Otherwise how would they have done Benton and Yates and Romana etc, they’re not the same height or body shape anymore as their figures. And we saw how overly massive they made Capaldi

    • Pesky Sontaran

      April 6th, 2021 - 11:37am

      Well I suppose so. Capaldi was stupidly tall and anyway I am not sure that they can guess all that well as some characters never stand next to another for a long period of time. However, if you look in the Brain of Morbius how tall Colin Fay was next to Elisabeth Sladen who was around 5 foot 3 or 4 and he towers over her. Even in an episode of All Creatures Great and Small Fay towers over Peter Davison who was 6 foot 1. He has got to be at least over 6 foot 5.

    • Neil Corry

      April 6th, 2021 - 2:19pm

      “Just guessed” is almost the answer.

      Heights of actors can be found relatively easy thanks to the internet, but sometimes that won’t help. Bonnie Langford might be a little over 5 feet tall but Mel’s hairstyles and her footwear change that quite a bit. So you compare it with the height of actors you do know – with C Baker and S McCoy’s heights well known.

      Philip Madoc is relatively easy to work out because he’s appeared in multiple Doctor Who stories, and we know the heights of Fraser Hines, Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker. Sarah Jane Smith isn’t especially good reference because Elisabeth Sladen’s always in heels. Not a bad idea when acting alongside Tom and Jon.

      Colin Fay would be trickier as Condo has been made even taller with his footwear, and Fay’s a big chap anyway, except Condo crouches over making the height of a figure/figurine different to him standing straight. The best thing to do would be to compare him to the Doctor, the Morbius Monster and – because you’ve just worked out Madoc’s height, obviously – use Madoc too.

    • Pesky Sontaran

      April 6th, 2021 - 7:21pm

      I have estimated Madoc at around 5 foot 6 and Fay is at least over a foot higher than him. Does anyone else have any idea about Fay’s height or even when he was born?
