    What a disappointment I just bought the dalek space ship and one of the two daleks is a drone from the new daleks so although they show two gold
    daleks you only get one.

    I thought doctor who coming at the end of the year was a good thing because character building could make some classic figures like sycorax silthene and some other compainouns before the series started

    • Andrew I

      July 13th, 2012 - 7:18pm

      Hmm. I think the BBC has maybe stipulated they need to hold off release until they start promoting the new series…. So probably towards the end of August??

    • Anonymous

      July 13th, 2012 - 7:29pm

      But CO are saying it will be the start of 2013, which certainly doesn’t suggest BBC intervention.

    • supremedalek01

      July 15th, 2012 - 3:38am

      They might be holding it off so they have a chance to make the CB figures from series 7 that way we’ll be focused on wave 3 and not wave 4.

    • killerofthewaffle

      August 22nd, 2012 - 4:11pm

      July 9th, 2012 - 3:42pm

      And they wonder why people make up rumours of the Doctor Who range ending.

      They take a year and a half to release a wave of figures, and don’t expect people to think the worst of them?

    • Swag

      July 22nd, 2012 - 4:14pm

      The Character Facebook confirms 2013 also.

      Skipping Summer and Christmas to stretch the Wave 3 hiatus is a really smart move…

      June 21st, 2012 - 11:07am

      I asked the fella at my local Argos when the new catelogue was out and he said the 21st of July, so I’d imagine the new CB stuff will be in it as they are selling off the old stock at 79p each (I bought 12).

    • supremedalek01

      June 23rd, 2012 - 9:53am

      A good way to avoid geting the character is to feel the bag, try to fing the head or legs thats the beat way. the daleks are easiest to locate.

      How about a Building Challenge

      The challenge is to build a model or a scene from DrWho Universe – using Character building DrWho figs you have at the moment.

      Take a photo of the model or scene and post it in the Character Building Flickr group.[email protected]/

      Keep it kid friendly, no adult stuff.

      that should help the waiting for series 3 figs a bit

      We are all fed up of waiting! We have had tantalising glimpses of a whole host of goodies & nothing has been released. I expect an incredibly stupid glut of stuff to all be released at once that nobody will be able to afford. Again, not at all impressed!

    • Friend of the Ood

      June 15th, 2012 - 7:57pm

      They should release free promotional figures like the eternal dalek to keep us going, that would be good 🙂

    • I eat hoix 4 breakfast

      June 16th, 2012 - 12:07pm

      They should do the same promotional packs from last year so people who didn’t get them can get some.

    • Friend of the Ood

      June 17th, 2012 - 4:54pm

      Yeah, it really sucks knowing that I may never get an eternal dalek. They should at least make it available in a set or in the next wave. I also don’t have the doctor with jacket and blue shirt, which is anoying.

      I was looking on eBay for an eternal dalek once and I was considering buying it for ten quid but the strangest thing happened, I went to Sainsburys and there was just one right there on the shelf. So I got it for two quid.

      I’m sure series3(CB) will be out sometime before autumn because character will be preparing for series4(CB) which should have characters from series7(TV show) and the Christmas special.
