    16 different cb in the series, hope there’s no super rares. Some in the series aren’t from the eleventh doctor era. Though if they made sets from the adventure games, why not figures?

      Depends what it is, with the blind packs yes, but with the multi-packs and the like you can, although what would be the point in keeping it mint, most of these figures end up fetching a fortune even out of their packaging.

    The sets in order of awesomeness:
    The Girl Who Waited Mini Set
    Berlin Mini Set
    TARDIS Materialisation Mini Set
    Dalek Saucer Set
    Silent Time Machine Set

    The reason the mega sets are at the bottom is because of the quality of last years. A young
    child would be thrilled with the Dalek Ship but if he/she could not hold it without it falling to
    pieces I think there’d be one unhappy child. Let’s hope that problem is fixed this year though!

      It wouldn’t be right, a Hitler figure, not after what he did. I think it was a mistake to even have him in an episode.

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 24th, 2012 - 8:58pm

      Well Hitler wasn’t portrayed as an evil tyrant in Lets Kill Hitler, he was shown as a fool which is exactly what Steven Moffat wanted to do; take the mick!

      It’s a materialisation TARDIS to make the effect of the TARDIS arriving look realistic or something like that. πŸ™‚

    • videogamemad00

      January 24th, 2012 - 9:37pm

      Just though of a CB adventure with the clear TARDIS. The Doctor gets teleported somewhere, somehow and can’t get back. He notices the TARDIS but it’s not properly there and he has to get it back somehow. What do you think?

    • callum simmons

      January 25th, 2012 - 4:20pm

      it is most likely the cloaked tardis from the impossible astronaut i doubt it would be a materialising tardis that would be pointless

    • callum simmons

      January 25th, 2012 - 4:26pm

      actualy just noticed title so it can’t be the cloaked tardis why a de-materialising tardis why not a tardis with fire detail in the windows or broken window details to be an exploding or repairing tardis.

  • Nathan

    January 24th, 2012 - 6:47pm

    Although there are 16 figures on display, they probably aren’t part of the wave, but instead with sets. For example, River and the Silence are with the Silence time machine set, The Handbot is with the girl who waited mini set, and the bronze Dalek could be with the Dalek saucer set (although the packaging says Dalek Drones). So the wave will probably be the same size as before.

      No it will be 16 because the ones in the sets don’t have bases

      January 24th, 2012 - 7:09pm

      I agree! Super-rares were Character’s second biggest mistake ever (after not releasing a Rory figure, but that can still be undone!) They were a dumb idea to try and get people to buy more packets in the vain hope they may get one, which is unlikely unless you were ridiculously lucky!

      Or riddiculously rich, yes, but for those of us who are not either, like myself, these great figures like Roman Rory, Cowboy River, Football Doctor, etc, are out of our reach, which isn’t fair.

      Shouldn’t be they are leaving part of the way through the series, so they shouldn’t be leaving until a bit into it at least but with the broadcast delay Series 4 should be before the series even begins.

    i like the black dalek

      I reckon they’ve got a Judoon with Helmet, a Judoon without Helmet, Sontaron with Helmet and a Sontaron without Helmet, they make cheap variants. As for the Silent, I don’t think that’s in this wave, making it a Wave of 15. Hopefully we’ll find out for sure soon.

      15 would be average, as the new Deadly 60 range has 15 figures.
