    Does anyone here dislike the way CB Rivers head is sculpted, I don’t mean the River on the Promo images, but on the actual figure.

    • supremedalek01

      June 5th, 2012 - 11:32am

      The hairs way to big.

    • Lime25Sour

      June 5th, 2012 - 8:19pm

      they might change it to look like the river from series 2 😉

      June 6th, 2012 - 11:18am

      Considering that 80% of people said that they would probably buy classic series character building is there any chance of that happening? I think it would be a great idea, I’d love to see zigons and it would be great to finally have a figure of the master.

      sorry was supposed to say it not i

    • supremedalek01

      June 4th, 2012 - 10:52am

      Not much but I’ve seen the pictures, but the only pictures they have just show little bits of each dalek.
      All I can tell from those pictures is that there will be at least one of each (pre, during and post time war) and I think the pre time war dalek is the only one of the 3 that is not damaged.
      It may be that both of the damaged daleks are trying to create an army using the originals and end up having a fight against each other.
      Or even cooler all 3 daleks start fighting each other.
      Either way cool!

    • supremedalek01

      June 4th, 2012 - 10:54am

      “This is the most Daleks we’ve ever had on the set of Doctor Who.”

    • supremedalek01

    I hope Dalek Sec isn’t going to be one of the rare figures.

    • supremedalek01

      May 31st, 2012 - 5:09pm

      It probably will be, just like the dalek strategist last year.

    • Ronronron

      June 3rd, 2012 - 11:57pm

      Actually I meant super rare like the Transparant Weeping Angel or the Doctor in his football kit.

    • Ronronron

      June 3rd, 2012 - 11:58pm

      Forgot to add on, if it is supposed to be as rare as the Strategist that won’t be much of a problem.

    • supremedalek01

      June 4th, 2012 - 11:02am

      I was going to ask weather you meant super rare but I don’t think there will be any this year (or if they ever come out) but even if they did there haven’t been super rare daleks before so I doubt it will be.

      CB have replied to my e-mail and said that there will be no new information till the end of June so we have to wait even longer now. 🙁

    • HeyWhoTurnedOutTheLights

      May 29th, 2012 - 7:46pm

      I wouldn’t mind but series 3 has some of the best figures yet, like the daleks and sontarans.

    • supremedalek01

      May 29th, 2012 - 7:56pm

    • supremedalek01

      May 31st, 2012 - 5:17pm

      But Jack and SJ have both appeared in Dr who (as well as there most famous enemies) so they can still make those individuals.

      It would make sense because that is when there target market (kids) would be watching TV, so fingers crossed 😀

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      May 25th, 2012 - 7:16am

      It depends really. Most adverts like that usualy begin to air once the product is out. Hopefully, we’ll begin to hear lots of news soon though, so yes, fingers crossed! 😀

      You could always try asking them. As it has been announced already they shouldn’t have a problem, at least you could ask when the announcement will be.

      In the mean time it is a case of waiting and taking any news that trickles through (apparently the Dalek Saucer will be £25).

    If CB do make classics these are my top 5 classic (pre time war daleks)
    5th Gold dalek: day of the daleks
    4th Blue/White warrior daleks: dalek invasion of earth
    3rd White/Gold imperial dalek: remembrance of the daleks
    2nd Black/Gold supreme council dalek: planet of the dalek
    1st White/Gold special weapons dalek: remembrance of the daleks

    Please give me your opinion.

    • supremedalek01

      May 20th, 2012 - 2:18pm

      Since they have at least one new dalek in each wave as long as they keep making them for years to come they might be able to make all of them but still make classics like the zygons.

    SuperRare Series 3:
    11th Dr Eye Patch

    Sontaran General Staal “The Undefeated”
    Shadow Architect (Series4 Shadow Proclamation)

      Cool, I would like the doctor and Amy with an eye patch and the Shadow Architect and Malohkeh would be cool as well…
      but there wouldn’t be that much difference between Staal and a sontaran Commander.
      I think it should be Dorium Maldovar instead.

      They wouldn’t include a brand new sculpt in the super rares, it would just cost them too much.

      I just hope they don’t bother with the super rares, we don’t need another five figures. I’d rather leave them for a future series so we can all get them rather than spending a fortune on ebay to get them.

    • I eat hoix 4 breakfast

      May 21st, 2012 - 6:21pm

      Series 1+2 had ten figures and five super rares 15 in all, this series has 15 figures so maybe they’re not doing super rares any more (hopefully).

    • Dalek Sec

      June 19th, 2012 - 7:43am

      A lot of people custom their own Superares from the common scuplts. New scuplts would be cool, but that would probably make people pretty buggered.

      Might not have been made yet, or it might not be included as the guns are not going to work with these figures as they are held with two hands.

    • supremedalek01

      May 14th, 2012 - 10:47pm

    • I eat hoix 4 breakfast

    • Anonymous

      May 18th, 2012 - 7:58pm

      The gun Madame Kovarian is holding is the River’s gun.

      Rory does have an eyepatch, it is just obscured because of the camera angle.

      As for the supposed Sontaran gun the Judoon are both holding, the gun is red so definetly not Sontaran.

    • supremedalek01

      May 19th, 2012 - 3:39am

      Look closely at the judoon with no helmet he is definitely holding something black and I’m sure its a sontaran weapon and looking at the image from another angle I am now positive the judoon with helmet has a sontaran gun as well as a judoon gun.

      booboo why do you need proof? It just says he got his first one not a super rare or one of these!


      May 8th, 2012 - 5:36pm

      Yes, but the original comment said that he had got a Judoon Micro-Figure. Booboo obviously edited it so it didn’t cause a huge argument.

    i think that there are 15 series 3 micro-figures. All the ones in the final picture before the slideshow apart from the silent.


      April 23rd, 2012 - 6:44pm

      That’s what I thought. It would make sense as the Deadly 60 Micro-Figures were a wave of 15.

      Also if they make 15 they probably wont do the super rares.

      this will probably be all the sets but you may get series 4 before the year is out – we also dont know if there will be any exclusives

    There could be a mini Judoon Rocket Set, along with a Junk TARDIS, Sontaran Scout ship, Dalek Emperor, 8th Doctors TARDIS, and Ganger Formation Pod (with a Ganger Slime Sachet).

      Slime set/s would be an interesting idea (as long as they don’t overdo it)… ‘lego’ and slime together would make a lot of kids/big kids happy I’d imagine. 😀

    • Dalek Sec

      April 17th, 2012 - 8:16am

      The CB figures i would really want are:
      Jennifer Lucas Ganger
      Doctor Ganger
      Imperial Dalek
      60s Dalek
      Tenth Doctor in long coat and screwdriver
      A Sea Devil
      A Zygon
      Stone Dalek
      And a Atraxi lego set.
      I don’t think they could make all that, but CB gangers seems to me as a very good idea.

    • Dalek Sec

      The Bin in the Dalek Factory can be used as an Ganger Factory Machine. Now we need a ganger.

    Series 4 of character building should be split into 2 different sets.
    1 set of the most recent series, so just series 6
    And 1 set of series below the most recent so series 1 – 5

    • Dr who who

      April 15th, 2012 - 9:28am

      Set 1 (series 6) should be
      1- Amy Pond (the almost people and the rebel flesh)
      2- Ganger 11th doctor
      3- River Song in Mels costume
      4- Rory Williams (The Girl who waited)
      5- Idris
      6- Headless monk
      7- Minatour
      8- Siren (green)
      9- Ganger in acid suit
      10- Peg Doll (blue)

    • Dr who who

      April 15th, 2012 - 9:36am

      Set 2 (series 1 – 5)
      1- Slitheen
      2- Davros
      3- Cybercontroller
      4- 10th doctor long brown coat
      5- Rose Tyler series 4
      6- Martha Jones series 3
      7- Donna Nobel Series 4
      8- Clockwork robot
      9- Master (the end of time)
      10- Sycorax

      What about the other 26 series before them?

    • supremedalek01

      May 15th, 2012 - 11:21pm

      I think they should arrange them into sets like they did with the 5″ figs, ten characters per series.
