    Do we know if the Eaglemoss Werewolf Figurine Special is being released now? I see it advertised on the Damaged Cyberman Issue with a large blue sticker. I’m wondering, as I have a dispatch note from DHL but it doesn’t say what it is?

      Well…I’d like to think it could be that too however I doubt they’d have known about that happening so might not be able to get that done in time? If they could get it done then they can do a variant on his previous figures. I think there’s a higher chance it could be a Jodie variant from Resolution.

    I was just wondering if someone could clear something up for me, its about the narture in which the Doctor defeated the Vashta Nerada in the two parter back in series four. I know they were not technically defeated but did the doctor ward them off through intimidation or was there another factor?

    I have a Doctor who question. When Bill gets shot by the blue man, the patients come up to collect her. Blue man says they come up to collect anyone that’s human. So they come and collect Bill. And then take her down to whatever floor she ends up on. She then has to wait for years to see the doctor again because time moves slower. But then, I thought project exodus was a project to make the humans strong enough to reach the top of the ship to gain control of the cockpit.

    But the Doctor and Co are already at the cockpit, and the patients have managed to reach the top to bring Bill back to the bottom. So clearly they can survive the trip up. So….why didn’t one of those patients from the start of the episode just take control of the ship to bring it out of the gravity well?

      Doesn’t the doctor also say that from floor 507 to the bridge, the time taken in the lift would equate to thousands of years in the tardis, so doesn’t that mean that the patients that went to collect bill would also have been gone from floor 1056 for thousands of years and in that time they didn’t already all develop into cybermen, yet in the 10 years bill was on the floor, they created the cybermen model… I absolutely love this two parter but I’m just curious

    • Doctor Stu

      January 26th, 2020 - 11:05am

      But the task was to reach the top to gain control, and the patients succeed right at the very start, they’re ‘strong enough to survive the exodus’. It’s job done, surely instead of taking Bill they should have wandered to to the controls and taken control of the ship

      I believe they are strong, but not strong enough to fully stay at the top, as they still have to carry around some tube thingy next to them. Furthermore, when Bill got her chest unit she could only stay out of the hospital for a couple of minutes.

      Possibly, I bet we get Series 6 as a minimum by the end of the year so if that’s halfway through, then Series 7 could be a late 2020 release? If so, the Steelbooks could be done next year as all they’d have to do would be the 50th Anniversary Specials and Series 8 (plus 9 and 10 re-releases if we’re lucky!)

      It’s really, really late. It has been delayed multiple times, I think it’s nearly a year late. To be fair to Big Chief they do keep you informed of any delays. They weren’t happy with the quality so moved to another company to produce it. They say this will have a knock on effect (13th doc was supposed to be this month but will be late) I’m happy to wait to get a better quality product, but dont be too surprised if you dont get 3rd Doc in June!

    Can I ask if anyone else is having problems with hmv? They’ve changed their password format so you have to include symbols but I’ve now had 7 different passwords because everytime I change it it works once then everytime after when you type in the correct password it just rejects it. They are certainly going in the right direction to go bust again.

      This series still has about one and a half months worth of content to televised, you also need to take into account that there might be characters they are waiting to fully reveal like the Cybermen before they begin making figures of them. The first wave will most likely release around when the series ends.

      From what i understand and this is an assumption that Character may release their figures in three batches starting with the new wave in February along with the Dalek sets and then the B and M sets in the Summer. If there are any new figures to be had I predict they would release the fall at that is a peak time in toy sales.

      Also that is most likely that Christmas will be the time the special episode will air and with the leaks indicating it is Dalek episode then we will most likely see Dalek figures released and there is a little rule in merchandising for doctor who. Daleks sell.

      January 23rd, 2020 - 2:15am

      The last figure of the wave is the Judoon Captain from the yet to air Episode 5, and presumably once that Episode airs, we’ll get images of that figure and the wave will be ready for release, hopefully being in shops in time for the finale.

      Off hand, I can’t think of any Internet Resource Site that cover’s Doctor Who trading cards especially concerning prices? Obviously it also depend’s on what actual cards from what actual series you are talking about? A very tiny handful can go for about £300 or higher. Some go for anywhere between £20 – £200. It is a Collector’s Market so if you have the money you pay the price if you desperately want it?

    Booboo, I remember last year, you said you got to see action figure (i assume prototypes) for the Graham, Yaz and Ryan figures at the toy convention that weren’t shown publically. I just thought to ask, did you see them with the primeval sculpts that we now know are being used, or were they original sculpts?

    Just thought I’d ask as I couldn’t remember if we were aware of that this time last year.

    Also, besides the four-figure wave, do u think we’ll get to see Yaz, Ryan and 13s TARDIS on Tuesday? Or any secret figures that have been kept under wraps?

    Reply
    • booboo

      January 20th, 2020 - 7:37am

      yes there were all primeval bodies exactly as you have seen the more recently.

      It really depends on how Yaz and Ryan are being released, if they are part of a second wave then i expect them to be there on show, thy might be exclusives possibly in which case they wont be on show.

      I dont expect anything else to be honest. Seems like there will be no photos again anyway this year.

    I know this is probably far too optimistic, but is there any chance the four action figire in this wave coming up later in the season could have any accessories with them, simple one-sculpt accessories to make them a little more interesting. I am expecting that the Judoon will come with the new series 12 gun (it would be a big let down and ‘cheaping out’ if they didn’t) but I mean say 13 in purple shirt, with a P’ting accessory or Graham from ‘Arachnids in the UK’ with a giant spider or two (Heck, I’d settle for them re-using the 3.75″ kill the moon spiders, or maybe something similar from primeval?)

    …if I was to be really greedy, imagine how great it would be if the Recon Dalek came with a mutant accessory, sculpted to be able to fit on the back of an average 5″ figure (though I realise this would be too much to produce, and, lets be honest, the Dalek will be the best seller of this wave… it doesn’t need the help that arguably 13 and Graham might to be eye-catching on a toy-shop shelf…)

    I also realise that this would probs have been mentioned in the title of these figures when they were leaked, but a boy can hope…

      I do wonder in the case of the Judoon figure weather there would be a problem with age, I think a lot of people (me included) forget that the revived series of Doctor Who has been around for fifteen years and it will have been thirteen years since release of that figure. I have no doubt the new figures will be good build wise but is there a risk to the molds?
