    I orderd 11 and curator on black fiday and it said it was dispatched on the 1st but it still hasnt arrived. How long should it take?

    • booboo

      December 13th, 2016 - 10:14am

      once despatched only 2-5 days you should have had it by now, try rining your local sorting office to see it its there, cards are not always left

      December 14th, 2016 - 12:39pm

      ah okay, thank you. I will check

    Well poo. I missed the deals. At least the re-sale market should be a bit cheaper though…

    • Voldermort

      December 4th, 2016 - 12:46am

      I can’t really believe the Time of The Doctor sets have all sold, Last time I looked there was still 1000 in stock.

  • Voldermort

    December 3rd, 2016 - 10:20am

    Well either someone has bought them all, or FPI have pulled them, because none of the above seem to be there now.

    • Mad Psientist

      December 4th, 2016 - 3:27pm

      I suspect that they’ve been pulled like you say in order to relist them at the standard prices. I went looking for the Curator set just before the sale and got the “Not found” page then as well,

      Great sale from FPI, IMO, in fact the only Black Friday event I bothered with. I bought more than Who merchandise from them though..

    Got my curator set yesterday. Can’t believe it use to be 30 I don’t think it’s worth that much. But 9 is very good. Can’t wait to get my time if the doctor set soon.

    Does anyone know when the sale will end?

    • booboo

      November 28th, 2016 - 4:35pm

      they will probably just pull it they haven’t given a date

  • 7thwhovlogs

    November 28th, 2016 - 11:13am

    How long do things from FP take to arrive?

    • Christopher Gilbert

      November 28th, 2016 - 2:37pm

      I ordered the Black Shirt 12th doctor figure from Forbidden planet. And they took forever to dispatch, it said up to 14-28 days of delivery.

    • Voldermort

      November 28th, 2016 - 11:16pm

      I hope it no longer than 7 days. They can’t really take 14 days to deliver. On their website it states the last point you can order before Christmas is the 16th Dec, so that would suggest delivery will be under 7 days.

    • Mad Psientist

      November 29th, 2016 - 4:58pm

      I put my order in on Friday morning and have just had despatch confirmation in the last half hour or so. Not sure if they work through these in chronological order or not.

    • Anonymous

      November 29th, 2016 - 5:59pm

      I ordered late Friday night, knowing my luck it won’t be dispatched till next week :’)

    • Voldermort

      November 30th, 2016 - 11:37pm

      I ordered mine on Friday in the early afternoon and am yet to hear anything? Why is it Toy R Us and Forbidden Planet UK has despatch within a day or two, but FPI takes ages?

      It can’t be to do with number of sales, beacuse I got bought something from Toyrus after FP order, and got it before.

    • booboo

      December 1st, 2016 - 7:13am

      at lot of stuff has been despatched but sales for thEse items at FP has been huge so i eXpect it will take tme a few days to get the items out

    • Voldermort

      December 1st, 2016 - 6:06pm

      Finally got a despatch notification this afternoon. Hopefully it doesn’t take too long to arrive.

      When was yours dispatched?

    • Voldermort

      December 1st, 2016 - 10:41pm

      I think/hope it should take at least 2 days to arrive after despatch.

    • James

      December 2nd, 2016 - 10:27am

      I ordered the curator set last Friday and got it this Thursday. About 6 days

  • Weeping Angel

    November 26th, 2016 - 9:20pm

    I bought the impossibe set, as i wanted it and apparently there is not many of them left, the curator set because well isnt it obvious?! Also it is the NUMBER 1 bestseller in the whole of FP! (last time i checked), the tote bag because it was only 99p and i liked the design and finally the time of the doctor set as i liked all the accessories. All for under £35 including P&P

  • Delete The Daleks

    November 26th, 2016 - 9:15pm

    I hope that character and underground toys have realised that £30 for those sets is too much like the £15 figures at toys r us. Hopefully if they make more, they are cheaper 🙂

    • Tom Baker Plush

      November 26th, 2016 - 11:15pm

      Sometimes they have to charge more for sets that contain parts that they can never use again. The 12th Doctor was only £15 because they made 4 versions of it and can keep reusing that sculpt for every 12th Doctor to come. Curator and TOTD set were £30 because they can’t use those parts on any other figure again.

    • Cyberman Bill

      November 27th, 2016 - 9:14am

      Yes… most people don’t understand the costs of making these figures… especially if it’s going to be a one off like the Curator (old 4). I don’t see them making any variants of the Curator! Lol
      (Maybe Curator in trench coat and scarf… secret agent Curator.. lol)

  • The Silent Silent

    November 26th, 2016 - 5:37pm

    There are 1186 Time of the doctor sets in stock & 434 Curator sets left in stock !!!

    • Anonymous

      November 26th, 2016 - 6:43pm

      Only 19 Impossible Sets, and a very large 543 Ace’s. No wonder they have been put on Sale, how many TOTD sets did they make? 1185 is a ridiculous amount to still be around.

    • booboo

      November 26th, 2016 - 6:45pm

      probably around 6000 world wide but it was very expensive here the price never seemed right to me on this set when it was about £12 – £14 in aus and the states

    • Omega63

      November 26th, 2016 - 6:43pm

      Sorry that was me btw

  • The Outcast

    November 26th, 2016 - 2:27pm

    They don’t send the Curator set to my country. 🙁

  • doctor13

    November 26th, 2016 - 11:56am

    does anyone know how long the curator set and totd set will arrive if ordered yesterday

    • booboo

      November 26th, 2016 - 12:05pm

      well they have had tonnes of orders so i would say 5-7 days at the moment

  • Ian

    November 26th, 2016 - 8:30am

    Good bargains, If you notice, bar Ace which in itself is a second release, all these reductions have been on Nu Who figures. I wonder is that significant, also I think your average customer doesn’t want to spend £30 on one figure.

    • Who?Me!

      November 26th, 2016 - 11:14am

      Of recent there’s been more “new series” figures than “classic” released…that’s the only significance.

    • The Outcast

      November 26th, 2016 - 2:29pm

      Hopefully they will make a ‘Power of the Daleks’ set next year to celebrate the animation. We can dream…

  • Jordan Scott

    November 26th, 2016 - 1:29am

    Ordered a Curator set, 2 TOTD sets and the Impossible Set. It was supposed to be about £45 but I got to the end of the checkout and was only charged £0.01! I’ve had an email of the order confirmation and everything, must be a glitch in the system or something. I’ll be really happy if they arrive – now that’s a black Friday deal! 🙂

    • Omega63

      November 26th, 2016 - 8:04am

      What in the name of Rassilon.
      Wow, you lucky person!!
      Hope they arrive for you!

    • prototype dalek

      November 26th, 2016 - 8:58am

      I got that £0.01 as well, never is that unfortunately 😉

    • Bundy

      November 26th, 2016 - 9:49am

      I got that too and thought RESULT! – then read they just charge 1p on your card to confirm it is valid at time of checkout and charge the rest when they actually ship. Still a bargain all the same!

    • DannyTheNerd

      November 26th, 2016 - 9:53am

      I tried doing that but it still says £45 for me xD You guys got very lucky!

    • Tom Baker Plush

      November 26th, 2016 - 10:47am

      The £0.01 thing is just a deposit, they charge you that though SagePay before charging you the rest directly to my understanding. Never seen them do it for a non-preorder item before I ordered my TOTD set yesterday though

    • Jordan Scott

      November 26th, 2016 - 11:07am

      Oh well, I’ve still saved over £90 on my order thanks to the black Friday deals! It did seem too good to be true…

    • prototype dalek

      November 26th, 2016 - 1:30pm

      Important thing is, we all got bargains 🙂

    • Weeping Angel

      November 26th, 2016 - 9:22pm

      Omg i got that 1p thing aswell! Unfortuantly it goes to the normal price later 🙂

    • Cyberman Bill

      November 27th, 2016 - 9:30am

      The 1p thing is a thing that credit card companies do to make sure that everything is working with the card you used! Companies have been doing this for years…. nothing new and nothing to get excited about… they will charge the rest right before it ships or when it ships.

  • Doctor Mysterio

    November 26th, 2016 - 12:36am

    Finally got the Curator set at a reasonable price. Glad I held out on this one.
