      they probably just sold out of the initial quantities entered I’m sure it will go back up

    I emailed character Options yesterday and here is the reply:

    Thank you for your email.

    I can confirm this is an exclusive to the US market.

    Therefore there are no current plans to release this in the UK.

    I’m fine with this being a US exclusive as I’m not a huge completist, I don’t even have the red top 13 yet. The only problem I have is the fact I don’t understand is why would you advertise this to a UK audience, via the back of UK figures, if it doesn’t come out in the UK?

    Like I say, I won’t miss it, it’s just weird they would do that.

      guess would be it as intended for the UK at the point when the packing was done but things changed, these things are actually done months in advance

      Happened before with some releases at toys r us when 2 figures on the back never got to the UK ( Re-tooled Black Dalek Sec being one of them)

    I think we can let the Americans have this one! considering they’re paying the best part of £40 per B&M set, when we’re all (In the UK) paying £19.99. I don’t think a repaint is going to effect my collection that much!

      completest market, i would actually love to know how USA V UK sales went for the Tots toys 13th Doctor.

      I think a fair amount of these will find there way back to the UK

      It’s not the only one, they also got the best Dalek Sec. Not to mention most other properties such as Star Wars are much cheaper for US to buy than UK. Of course if you’re only Doctor Who that doesn’t matter. This one being US only doesn’t matter to me either because I’m not a completist and think 2 different colours is more than enough.
      Not to mention the eBay process of the B&M sets (unless you search hard enough) are closer to the US prices.

    i don’t get the usa exclusive on this item as i’ve never imagined doctor who being very well known there.I know it’s shown on bbc america now but i always imagined it being the kinda channel brits watch who moved to usa.I’m suprised they havn’t tried to americanise there own version like they tried and failed to do with red dwarf.

      Assuming these are new distributor and new business it could be an “incentive” to start or a deal breaker.

      eg, we will buy x amount of sets if you give us an exclusive.

      I dont know this for sure but this sort of thing does happen in busness.

      Technically they did try to do that with the TV movie…

      August 4th, 2020 - 6:41pm

      It’s better known over there these days. Every time I go to the US I meet a lot of people who watch it. And the first thing a lot of people ask,after the usual….oh I love your accent!…lol,is,do you watch Doctor Who? So we talk about it for a little while and leave. Or we start talking about other stuff we like. It’s always fun moments. And I see the Tardis in the most obscure places! Love it.

      Might have to order this figure,ship it to my American parents,and have them throw it in the box my American little brother is shipping to me soon. Yes,there are always ways to get what you want,lol!

    Strangely enough the Amazon listing does not state that it’s a ‘USA Exclusive’ anywhere? I don’t really want to spend £30, then find out 6 months later that it will be available from Forbidden Planet for £15!

      All i can say is someone in the “Know” on a forum has just said this a USA Only exclusive.

      I doubt if whoever set up the Amazon page and the Store front would have UK buyers in mind enough to even put that, but i will bet a fair amount of sales will be from UK Buyers for this.

    • Khem

      August 6th, 2020 - 3:51pm

      OK – So from what has been said on here, it’s a US Exc. only. I’ve bitten the bullet & ordered one now!

    So Booboo, what’s the chances of this coming to the UK? I get that it’s a US exclusive but is ordering from there the only way of us getting this?

      I just dont know, it could turn up in a later B&M set for all we know, although if the USA are selling them that would be odd.

      One thing i notice is that the packaging has the big red “Hazard Warning” on the front which is USA specific, the UK carded sets don’t have that.

      Will be interesting to see if they have had to do that with all the sets and figures they are selling.

      Even if it never gets a US release. DONT worry you’ll always get someone selling it on eBay if your willing to pay abit more than MRP. I do It all the time with Star Wars US exclusives. There’s hundreds of them, but I always manage to get them all.

      Do you know if there will be additional import fees on top of the shipping you pay? If that makes sense? Thanks

      no they are paid up front as part of the shipping costs, one of the good things about Amazon global shipping.

      I’m the second chump! £36.07 it’s cost me. I’ve bought Dr who classic figs for higher anyway. I’m used to my chump-nesque ways.

    • Coleman

      August 4th, 2020 - 11:12am

      Your not a chump mate, if you really want something you’ll pay for it regardless of cost. l do it all the time.

    • booboo

      August 4th, 2020 - 11:19am

      the USA has always been problematic for UK buyers, i have bought stuff in the past for around $20 with much higher shipping costs than this then it gets picked up at customs (which they are much hotter on now) and you have to pay the tax and get walloped with an £8 handling charge on top.

      This isn’t such a bad deal if you want it as its all pre-paid.

    I’ve just contacted the seller which version they’re selling. However, as I was writing this I got a reply. The seller won’t be back until 10th August to answer anyone! So much for confirmation. Funny no one else on Amazon other than GOGS1 is selling it?! Wait and see, shall we? My query could still be answered on the 10th.

      Just received an email from GOGS1 just this minute. This is their message.
      ‘Hi there! It’s the light blue version! We’re trying to update our photos ASAP!’
      Looks like it is the US version. I’m going to wait for them to update their pics just to be sure!

  • Khem

    August 3rd, 2020 - 4:37pm

    So it’s currently about £28, which is fairly steep for a single figure? If it definitely is a USA only Exclusive then I’ll certainly buy it, but I’m currently in two minds about this?

    I hope we see a UK release, I quite liked her light blue shirt variant and it would be nice if it was released in the UK, if it came with a scarf to differentiate it from the US release

    I think it might get released in December in the UK to coincide with Revolution of the Daleks. Probably when the next B&M sets are released.

      Would anything like this come to forbidden planet as an exclusive For the UK at all?
