    I was lucky and managed to get all of these first time around but another 3rd Dr and Tardis and different paint colours on the others is not enough for me to go hunting around b&m stores getting stressed in the process like last time but good luck to everyone else!

    Not in my local yet. 5th staff member I asked actually asked the warehouse manager.

    Nice figure, however, for me, the Tardis is far to similar to other one we got, with the regenerated 4th Doctor! Kinda wish I’d skipped on that one, and got this one instead to be honest…

    • Grant

      Yes me too don’t really have the room for another 3rd Dr and Tardis but wished I’d skipped that one and waited but how was we know lol just glad we are kinda getting more 5inch figures will save my money for the 3 figure packs later in the year!

      This tardis is OK but I like the shada tardis better

    I just rang them and they said only 1 per customer and they are not putting them on the shelves! You have to ask in store! That’s madness!

    • booboo

      March 5th, 2020 - 4:31pm

      which store said that?

    • Mark Belsom

      March 5th, 2020 - 5:11pm

      Maybe they’re trying to stop scalpers buying them?

    • booboo

      March 5th, 2020 - 5:54pm

      possibly, but people also buy multiples for many different reasons, if its a short term policy to stop the initial ebay frenzy then fine, and as long as its also universal at ALL stores, but long a term policy could be quite damaging.

      That’s very unusual. If that’s the case I’m so glad I found out here or I’d have wandered around a few branches wondering why none had them (as I don’t have the confidence to approach staff and ask for things normally).
      The rule about multiples doesn’t effect me, but the ‘under-the-counter’ style thing is new on me.
      Wonder if that’s store wide or just a branch specific thing.
      I actually think I like it.
      I can see how it might not work for some and I’m sorry for them, but I can see real pros, too. Be interesting to see this play out.

      It’s interesting seeing the difference in approach from store to store, most I’ve asked in they don’t care if one person buys all the stock, or if several people buy individually. A sale is a sale in their eyes.

    • booboo

      March 5th, 2020 - 6:20pm

      this did happen in one or two stores last time but certainly not all, they are probably getting loads of phone calls to be honest

    Booboo is there three b&m waves this year or is it just three pack and for this year

    • booboo

      March 5th, 2020 - 9:11am

      i don’t know, the only thing a know for sure is 3 new 3 figure sets later in the year, i expect another Tradis or 2 and maybe more Dalek sets but i don’t know.

    • Master of M

      March 5th, 2020 - 2:06pm

      I wonder how long it is before they release a 7th Doc and Pink Happiness Patrol TARDIS. Would be really easy to do (just an alt paint job).

  • Marcus

    March 4th, 2020 - 10:46pm

    I think I’ll either visit the B&M store in Merry Hill, because thats where I got the shada and 5th tardis before, or order it off of Ebay or Amazon eventually.

    • Damon

      Looked in merry hill and Brierley Hill today and nothing I’m afraid

    they ony come out today it takes days to get to stores think of us in scotland we get them weeks later so give it time, the last few sets the stres where over run with them then they brought out more so wait watch and see

    Disappointing. I’ve had a look at the 1966-onward TARDIS images on the website and this would have been better as a regeneration set with a grubby, faded, all-blue TARDIS from Spearhead from Space with a third doctor regeneration figure.
    Surely The Monster of Peladon TARDIS should be exactly the same as the Robot TARDIS two stories later? The original prop was repainted and repaired only two stories before for Invasion of the Dinosaurs in 1974.

    Just for clarity the stock HAS arrived with B&M, but just like last time it may take a few days to get into stores, it was mainly Friday and over the Weekend this happened.

    I have not seen any photo proof myself that any have reached stores yet

    Looks the best set of the lot. Great to have another Pertwee figure variant. I’ve always thought ‘The Monster of Peladon’ wasn’t that bad a story either.
