B&M 2020 Ace Set UK Product Code 364315. Available from 8th November 2020.

This set celebrates Remembrance of the Daleks from Season 25 Episode 3, first broadcast in October 1988.

The TARDIS arrives in London in 1963, where the Doctor and Ace discover that two rival factions of Daleks – one loyal to the Dalek Emperor and one to the Dalek Supreme – are seeking the Hand of Omega, a powerful Time Lord device that the first Doctor hid there during an earlier sojourn on Earth.

The Daleks are focusing their search around Coal Hill School – the school that the Doctor’s grand-daughter Susan attended – while a military unit led by Group Captain Gilmore is attempting to resist their incursions.

The figures in this set feature the Imperial Dalek and Ace as well as accessories including backpack and RPG launcher.

Speaking of the new release, Al Dewar, Creative Director said: “This year has seen a cascade of new sets for collectors and fans and these latest two sets are favourites of mine because they represent unique moments in Doctor Who that many fans including myself remember… wonderful stuff!’

      If you read all of the comments from when this was released there was lots of discussion and frustration haha, basically the Dalek has an updated eye (paint probably don’t think it was new) and has incorrect mesh between the slats. Ace updated paint and no bat.

    So – We’re in July and still no official word. It’s all very odd. At least I’m not having to do my usual daily grand tour of all of the local B & M stores. Can’t say I miss the stress so that’s a positive to take away.

      Al Dewar has confirmed they were purchased legitimatey in a B&M but its unknown how they got there! Likely a mix up with boxes or somesuch. But as Booboo says they are not officially out.

    Any news on new figures or sets seems to be very quiet apart from eaglemoss who are doing a fair amount of figurines.i rather the 5″ ones

    • Dalek Eye Stalk

      March 30th, 2021 - 2:55pm

      Indeed. I’m somewhat surprised that we are almost in April, and yet there is still no confirmation on any upcoming B&M sets. Makes me wonder if there could be a supply problem?

    • booboo

      March 30th, 2021 - 5:30pm

      Apart from some early BF sets and a Tardis set which i don’t see happening this year, last years main sets weren’t announced until the end of May and even then it was done early because of the (contents) leak on ebay, the actual stock did not arrive until July, I dont expect news any time soon

    History of the Daleks sets 1 and 2 were a mere fiver in B&M Coleraine and what’s left of the other sets were £8. Sadly not this Ace set.

    Any news on B&M 2021 figure sets being released yet? Would really like some companions from the Hartnell, Troughton and Davison era’s.
    Surely we could have Ian, Barbara and Susan for the 1st Dr era.
    Jamie, Victoria and Zoe for the 2nd Dr era.
    Plus Nyssa, Tegan and Adric for the 5th Dr era.

    • booboo

      March 24th, 2021 - 1:14pm

      you might get new head sculpts where existing bodies / costumes can be used as has happened recently but some of those will be problematic , especially Jamie

    • Dalek Eye Stalk

      March 26th, 2021 - 8:01pm

      Unless they do Jamie in the uniform he was wearing in part 3 of ‘The Enemy of the World’? That’s a possibility.

    • Dalek Eye Stalk

      March 27th, 2021 - 8:47am

      Jamie in uniform worn in episode 3 of the ‘Enemy of the World’, Victoria in jumper and skirt (should be an easy figure to create) from the same story, plus the Second Doctor. Hey presto, that makes an ‘Enemy of the World’ 3 figure set.

    • Day Dalek Gold

      It is not an a set at current times, but with the History of the Daleks sets it’s bound to come out soon.

    Strange activity in Hounslow branch. A couple of weeks ago I spoke to the staff, they said two men buy all of the Coal Hill sets whenever a delivery comes in. I asked the manager to keep one aside for me from the next delivery, which he agreed.
    I went back last week and was told that the Coal Hill set was in stock again by the floor staff. However, when they checked for me it transpired that it wasn’t in store anymore. Confused? So was I. I spoke to the manager and again asked if he could keep one aside for me – he was non committal….
    I think I’ll try my luck elsewhere.

    Another update on the South East. Chelmsford finally have these sets in store. Plenty of 12 and Davros, plenty of leftover Spring sets, but I was fortunate enough to pick up the last Coal Hill set out on the shelf.

    I actually popped into Rochford first but as before they still have no Doctor Who stock at all.

    They had at least 30 Capaldis when I was in at 7pm on the 4th December. There’s no way they sold those in a day. Did you check behind the tills? They don’t keep the Ace sets on the shelves, only behind the till.
