    I just subscribed to the DWM for the first time. Does anyone know if they send you a dispatch email to inform you when the issue has been sent.

      No, they don’t. You should get each month’s near the publication date, but you don’t get a despatch email for it.

    Ordered off zoom 3 days ago. Took my money but not even had a confirmation email, nor a reply to my email enquiring about this.
    Anyone else have or had trouble with them?

      Zoom Staff don’t work at weekends and no doubt have had numerous Zoom Day orders.

      Log into your account and check your order history. If it is there your order is confirmed.

      I’ve never had any issues with them as I get the Collection sets there although I log in to check if dispatched as never get a dispatch email once I see my Credit Card has been charged.

      Recently I had a very bad experience with Big Chief Studios where they sent me the wrong figure and expected me to sort out a return for this item even though it was their mistake (this was during the essential travel journeys period of COVID 19).
      They didn’t want to send me the figure I ordered till I returned the one they sent by mistake, even though I was honest and told them of the wrong figure delivery.
      The whole mix-up took a month to sort out, so I would not recommend Big Chief Studios and I think their customer service and care is 0/10

      It’s been a very mixed bag with Bigchief. I am cautious of them. From my experience I feel like they take it as a person attack if you have an issue with one of their products.
      I have the 13th Dr pre-ordered with them but going off past purchases I’ll be avoiding their direct website where possible and buying from the likes of forbidden planet should they stock anything from Bigchief.

      Yeah same here I have had an issue with them where they lied/made a mistake (wasn’t very clear what happened) about when they dispatched the item and if I hadn’t contacted them I would have never received it. Took over two weeks to arrive and had no communication from them telling me that there would be a delay before I asked where it was. Was a present and came too late.

      I’ve ordered a few things from them, their own products and hot toys, so far I’ve not had any big problems, I’ve only had good interactions with their customer care team, helping me with payments and stuff. But I guess it could all be done to luck

    Boo boo just been looking at the four new Peter cushing books I’ve preordered and realised that one is a collection that is based on the proposed radio series. It appears that it has the script or an adaptation of the malcolm hulke play included. I can’t be certain but that’s what it looks like.

      The titan books website is down but I’ve received confirmation today from waterstones that a titan book was sent today. I’d be very surprised if the companies were in trouble. Certainly titan books are still tweeting today and no mention is made of any problems. I presume they use the same servers which would explain the issues.

      Just noticed Amazon website is also a bit odd. The advanced search for books has vanished. Makes looking for stuff a bit difficult. And there appears to be no way to report the fault as it doesn’t relate to an actual order. Amazon’s customer service has been abysmal for years though but it would useful to contact them about non-order issues such as offensive reviews!

    Do you think we’ll ever see another TARDIS playset? It’s a crime that 11/12’s didn’t get a release, but can understand cost implications.
    As much as i’m not a fan of 13’s interior. I can picture it being a great playset!

    This might be something that’s been mentioned before, but has anyone had any issues with the plastic part of the collection boxsets (which holds the discs) coming loose from the box itself. The glue doesn’t seem to be very strong. If so, how have you rectified it?

      May 23rd, 2020 - 11:33pm

      Not had issues with the plastic but one of the booklet holders corner glue came loose.

      I used PVA glue to fix it but had to be careful with amount used and to clean up any run off. Also weighed cardboard down with coins to fix it overnight.

      I imagine it will work the same for the plastic.

      You will just have to buy them from their site or Forbidden Planet unless your local newsagent can order them in.

    Someone last week asked a question about HBO financing doctor who. Now the simple answer is no, they have never done that. Two supplementary answers have occured to me though. One I provided last week, the fact that in 2019 HBO acquired the streaming rights for new who. However i think i know where some of the confusion comes from. Back in 2008 the BBC used the sets constructed by HBO for it’s series Rome in the fires of Pompeii story. The BBC hired the studios and HBO had no financial involvement in the story or production.

      Thanks for the info. This title has always been erratic with it’s release date’s. Most of the time they give a completely incorrect date at the back or give a correct date then don’t stick to it? I can only presume Corvid19 is to blame for the lateness of this issue?

      To be honest it depends on how sales hold up in the current situation, this year was really important to the future of the range and its probably been dealt a very big blow.

      No problem. I did like it when he responded to us directly and offered hints and answered questions. It’s a shame but understandable.

      I’m hoping they continue so we at least get 9th/10th, 11th and 13th consoles. I imagine they will sell very well.

      because people can’t be civil.

      Even when its explained about higher costs due to what’s happening people still stick the boot in.

      Just don’t buy it and leave those who understand the situation to enjoy it.

      I understand price increases, but the season 14 console in the first place didn’t look like it was as costly to make as say the series 8 console, and that hasn’t come out yet either, so I’m sorry if I may have offended anyone by asking about it, I didn’t mean to upset anyone…

    • booboo

      May 21st, 2020 - 12:25pm

      lower costs of one offsets the higher cost of another, that clearly happens with some of the figurines as well.

    • Jordan9364

      May 21st, 2020 - 1:06pm

      That’s pretty much my stance on it. I understand a little inflation but that console is tiny compared to the others in the first place, and I’m pretty sure it’s missing parts (mirror, barriers) on top of that

      If you are unhappy with it don’t buy it. Don’t complain, just don’t buy it and leave it for those who are happy to buy. Prices will continue to increase as we do deeper into a recession. Get used to it.

      You are actually paying for the console,not oddments and accessories, its most likely why there aren,t monitors/screens on 12ths. Its saying nothing else is included except whats on the tin.
