This exclusive anniversary year release of the Sixth Doctor with his TARDIS comes exactly a decade and half since this figure’s first release in 2008. The Sixth Doctor was one of the most verbose, and articulate of The Doctors incarnations, and could be both melodramatic and stubborn. But despite these tendencies, under his thunderous and turbulent exterior, he was passionate, warm and empathetic.

Al Dewar Creative Director says ‘These were interesting sets to work on. Regarding the Dalek sets we’re hopping around a little this year, but it meant we could be creative and add the ‘Five Doctors’ into the History Of The Daleks Sets. As fans know this story featured one lone Dalek so it was a perfect opportunity to bring back a head sculpt created over a decade ago of the late great Richard Hurndall who played a version of the first Doctor in this story. Or … it would have done had the sculpt not been scrapped. So, not to be outdone we resurrected it in digital form, and I think it’s fair to say it’s better than the original.

‘Both the Daleks for this Set and the second ‘Revelation of the daleks’ set have been given a makeover with a mix of new parts to update the look to better match the screen used props including a lifted neck bin making them a teeny bit taller, new eyestalk, new dome lights and an updated chunkier front shoulder section on the Necros boys!

‘The final Set is The Sixth doctor and TARDIS set featuring a very different version of The Sixth Doctors costume based on one used in a Stage Play of the time. It’s a lovely figure which coupled with a delightfully shabby TARDIS which perfectly reflects the state of the prop at the time, creates a nice standout set.

‘It’s also worth mentioning fans and collectors will notice a distinct change to the packaging for these 2023 sets giving the whole range a nice facelift.’

These new sets will be available in coming weeks at local B&M Stores and with and SRP of £34.99 for the TARDIS sets and £24.99 for the Dalek Sets. (prices may differ in store)

    It’s such a shame that this year’s Tardis is non-electronic when last year’s David Bradley one was.

    I mean, ONE STEP FORWARD, TWO STEPS BACK! Come on, B&M…!

    All sets located at Chippenham Store apparently according to one of the social media groups I follow.

      so some spotted now

    • Who is who?

      Yes just seen the photo of them on the end aisle

    Having reviewed the timescale between announcement and release of last year’s first wave I do feel I have to ask whether or not we’re all getting a bit ahead of ourselves with this lot?

    • Independently Cross

      August 30th, 2023 - 4:28pm

      Hope so, personally/selfishly- I’m skint for another fortnight! Hadn’t banked on it all potentially reaching fruition this quickly. We shall see.

      No – their arrival is imminent

    Booboo is there a chance all stores may stock them this year? Somone on Facebook who works for B&M think they will.

    • booboo

      August 30th, 2023 - 9:30am

      things do seem to be different this year, how things pan out is yet to be seen

    • Dwho

      August 30th, 2023 - 11:41am

      Booboo do you know stock numbers? Always thought Daleks were around 4K sets, is there more this time?

    • booboo

      August 30th, 2023 - 11:50am

      not at the moment , used to be around 7K per product code but as the Daleks had the same code it was 3500 of each, Tardis used to be around 4k i think

  • Ian

    August 29th, 2023 - 4:32pm

    Are folks aware that the sets seem to be the same price as last year.

    • booboo

      August 29th, 2023 - 5:41pm

      well if the visit here they would be its says that at the top

    • Ian

      August 29th, 2023 - 7:27pm

      All I saw was srp of £34.99 for example for the Tardis. I’m relieved they are not that expensive. All we need from the Five Doctors is 2nd in that version of fur coat, proper Ainley Master, Chancellor Flavia ,Borusa & the Castellan

    • booboo

      August 29th, 2023 - 7:29pm

      £24.99 has been at the top of the page for a while srp was in the CO / BBC studios press release with a very specific store prices may vary

      personally i think if they had put the “right price” to start with it would have saved a lot of backlash and hostility that’s been rife across social media.

    • Ian

      August 29th, 2023 - 8:47pm

      Agree. I got the press release too. Al Dewar didn’t exactly reassure people it wouldn’t be £34.99.

    • booboo

      August 30th, 2023 - 7:55am

      he may not have known to be honest

  • Ian

    August 29th, 2023 - 4:10pm

    I just wish I could go to any B&M and pick up the sets instead of the hunt.

      August 29th, 2023 - 7:07pm

      That would be lovely, wouldn’t it? I’m autistic with severe anxiety, not knowing whether I’ll be fast enough to grab the sets really stresses me out, lol.

    • Matt

      August 29th, 2023 - 10:58pm

      Just getting tired of stressing about the scalpers and constantly checking at my local b&m every day for yet another tardis.

      Giving it a miss, sticking with the versions I want to keep and selling the rest, fed up with chasing these down every time.

      Scalpers are crushing the enthusiasm for these sets.

    • Erato

      August 30th, 2023 - 8:36am

      Remember that eBay isn’t the only place you can buy sets – people sell them on other online marketplaces such Facebook and Vinted. Just have an idea of how much you’re willing to pay when you factor in the stress and cost of travelling to find them.

    • rich

      August 30th, 2023 - 1:43pm

      Matt, are you selling the ones you don’t want at cost or at market value? Because isn’t selling at more than you paid scalping?

    • booboo

      August 30th, 2023 - 1:53pm

      no its not, not even close, if something increases in value over time then that’s an investment, no different to property or gold and you have every right to sell it for its market value at the time.

      Buying multiples to immediately and deliberately sell on at a significant profit is scalping and its also classed as a business.

    • Independently Cross

      August 30th, 2023 - 4:22pm

      100% agree with Booboo. Textbook definition of ‘scalping’. We might not personally like the aftermarket prices of older/discontinued items, but the ‘late tax’ isn’t what scalping is at all. Nobody would reasonably expect a 1978 Jawa for 99p in 2023. But if somebody bought as much local stock as they could in 1978, and then tried to sell them at £10 each a week later, while the item was still technically supposed to be available at retail: That’s scalping. It’s specific (and horrible) and gets used too frequently as a descriptor for everything that’s no longer it’s original retail price. Genuine scalping’s bad enough without needing to muddy the waters by lumping in absolutely everything that’s no longer the price it once was.

    • Rory

      August 30th, 2023 - 5:21pm

      @booboo, have been called a scalper more than once for buying a second copy as an investment.

      I know that it may sit for years to see a good return and that’s fine by me as that’s investment strategy. It’s speculating on what will increase in value over time, rather than choking the initial supply to make instant profit.

    Are we thinking the Dalek sets will appear at the same time as this Tardis set in stores?

    • booboo

      August 28th, 2023 - 5:06pm

      the fact the price is now scanning suggests to me the delivery is immanent or is already here

    Remember the Dalek Sets now come in cases of 12 rather than 6. So there should be more on the shelves.

    When will these be hitting the shelves? In the past it’s usually been around 3 or 4weeks from announcement to availability… and then the mad panic dash from shop to shop!

    • booboo

      August 22nd, 2023 - 11:36am

      at the moment 29th (always fluid)

      Also I believe they maybe doing the same as last time with a lower in store price showing a reduction.

      Barcodes are not working (which they did) so might be updating the system for immanent arrival

      Had updated the posts with all the info / barcodes product codes etc then had to take them off to remove it all again as couldn’t do it there and then.

    • Duncan Moss

      August 23rd, 2023 - 9:50am

      There should be no mad dash. These products should be available online.

    • Aber

      August 20th, 2023 - 11:24am

      Yeah I’m not too fussed about this one either. Fortunate to have the Davison TARDIS sets, and a couple of Colins already.

      Holding out for a reissue/online release of the McCoy one (with duffle coat?)

    • GrantP

      August 20th, 2023 - 12:46pm

      Yeah they deffo got to do a 7th Dr Tardis set in the duffle coat would be Ace! Hopefully next year!

    • Anonymouse

      August 24th, 2023 - 2:51pm

      I’d imagine that if they ever get round to releasing duffel coat 7 it would be part of another “deluxe” set with lights and sounds on the TARDIS.

      Given that the 6 set above (without lights and sounds) is going for £5.00 MORE than the Abominable Snowman set from only two years ago, putting out a duffel coat 7 set would probably be so prohibitively expensive that B&M would balk at including it in their “budget” range (even though it isn’t really a budget range any more).

    • The Unlicensed Physician

  • Jackson Lake

    August 17th, 2023 - 10:17pm

    I’m definitely getting this. Good to see something different. Although I hope at some stage we might see some new ‘new who’ figures.

    But I know the B&M range can only do so much.

    Wilf, Nardole, an updated Tenth Doctor from Midnight, an in scale 12th Doctor from Twice Upon a Time and
    an 11th Doctor from Closing Time would be at the top of my list, but I know this isn’t 2011.

      August 18th, 2023 - 3:49pm

      You want way too many ‘repaints’. Plenty of superior ‘classic figures being overlooked – but while fans are content with ‘rehashes’ we’ll never get them.

    No point anymore scalpers will have there fill and bulk buy again most b&m stores won’t be getting any in because some old sets didn’t sell well I won’t be giving in to ebay scalpers ever because all we will do is feed their greed

    • J Blackmoor

      August 18th, 2023 - 3:34pm

      I agree with you. If absolutely no one paid for these off the scalpers then they would vanish. I’m so tired of making the trip to the B&M’s and finding nothing… only to see them on eBay for stupid money… am really sick of it. But I would love to have this set, I truly would! (Just not at scalpers cost!)

    • Spacewarp

      August 20th, 2023 - 12:15am

      @John Kelly. Tardis sets always sell, as do Dalek sets, so I can’t see why the the larger B&M stores won’t still get them. Certainly that means about 6 in my area. They seem to be selling for around £70, which would make the seller about £20 (if you assume postage is about a fiver). However, I really can’t believe that someone has bought a 6th Doctor & Tardis set on Ebay “pre-order” for £180. Personally I’ve found that after about a fortnight or so the prices start to drop by about a tenner or so.

      If you try one of the online Ebay fee calculators you find that to break even on a £35 set with £5 postage you have to sell it for no less than £47. That’s how much Ebay take in fees!

    • rich

      August 26th, 2023 - 5:35pm

      @spacewarp – the only 6th doctor set I can find that has been sold on eBay also includes the other two sets

    How about them doing a “Trial of a Timelord” Colin Baker with the bigger hair etc..was never entirely convinced by the shape of this one..just churning out the same figure/head etc in a different colour outfit is slightly lazy.

  • Bundy

    August 17th, 2023 - 10:25am

    Regarding the price, was it not in the last wave there was a price stated but it was actually always sold for less in the stores (and I think it may even have been advertised as a discount price on the website)?

    • booboo

      August 17th, 2023 - 11:29am

      yes it was, i’ve looked on the B&M app and no price is listed yet for any of these

  • Colin

    August 17th, 2023 - 8:17am

    £34.99!! Gee don’t think can afford to do this anymore if it was brand new classic companions would happily part with my money same with the Five Doctor set could have given us Susan in her trench coat surely that would have been easier to do? I know it’s a budget line but £34.99 that’s not very budget!

    • booboo

      August 17th, 2023 - 8:38am

      There has never been a 6th Doctor in the B&M range because the multiple paint runs and colours were far to expensive for the sets and B&M budgets.

      This probably seemed the best way of doing it rather than continuously exclude him from the range altogether (which people constantly complained about)

      These sets are commissioned on a very very small budget

    • Rex Farrel

      August 17th, 2023 - 3:12pm

      I often seriously wonder if I could commission Character to produce a new figure, and have them sell it via their website or Amazon fulfilment. The numbers available, or that we can deduce, I’d be very tempted…

    • Martino

      August 17th, 2023 - 3:52pm

      That idea has been floated around a few times, but depending on the figure you might generate a lot of support now. Back when I started casually collecting, late Eighties, I commissioned work from model shops, buying kits and getting them professionally assembled and painted. Orc’s Nest & Comet Miniatures (both local to me, I lived in Stockwell and worked in Holborn) charged me what seemed astronomical amounts to me back then. The idea of getting a Character Options figure off the starting blocks is very appealing.

  • Bob James

    August 17th, 2023 - 1:09am

    A NOTD Eighth Doctor and War Doctor w/battered Time War Tardis is still my most fevered dream. And it would be so simple and easy to do. Unless they went the distance and created a younger Sir John Hurt head sculpt. Now the dream is even more fevered…………..

    • silver5urfer

      August 17th, 2023 - 11:15am

      I wouldn’t normally comment but I was so pleased that somebody mentioned this. Not sure there would be a more fitting tribute to 60th Anniversary and Sir John Hurt , his excellent portrayal of the Doctor. Minimum, non electronic Tardis and Figure, think that is a bit of a miss, but i’m sure someone somewhere thought of this, guess its a cost thing, and unfortunately fans rarely get their wishes.

    • Spacewarp

      August 17th, 2023 - 4:47pm

      A War Tardis would be very nice indeed. I made a start on customising a 9/10 one but I’ve not got round to the blast marks, because if I don’t do them right I’ll ruin it. And there’s the issue with a mass-produced one. The paint jobs are done by hand, and those blast marks are very distinctive.

  • Bob James

    August 16th, 2023 - 10:01pm

    The shuttle Is VERY impressive! Now if he’d said that was being released my enthusiasm for this company and Dr Who in general might well have been revitalised – but how much would it cost if it was released anyway ?
