    River in the wedding of river song
    2x Gangers (Forman cleaves and the doctor)

      What do you mean you know what is in series 3 and 4??????

    • booboo

      January 26th, 2012 - 6:41pm

      no he doesn’t

    • BOB

      January 26th, 2012 - 8:52pm

      I mean I know what is in series 3 of character building so let’s guess whats in series 4

  • Fraslam10

    January 25th, 2012 - 8:40pm

    I think there would be ten figures in total because:
    1. Dalek Sec (In The Wave)
    2. Sontaran with interchangeable heads
    3. Judoon with interchangeable heads
    4. Amy with Tally Marks
    5. Ood
    6. Doctor In Green Coat
    7. Madame Kovarian
    8. Cyberleader
    9. Vashta Nerada
    10. Rory with Eye Drive

    Then the Bronze Dalek is in the Dalek Spaceship set, the Silent and River Song in the Silence Time Machine Set and The Handbot in The Girl Who Waited Set.

    • Liason Ice

      January 26th, 2012 - 7:16am

      Don’t forget that blind pack figures cross over into the sets and the only one that is not a series 3 figure is the Silent.
      So without the Silent there are 15 figures, and the super rares aren’t usually displayed, so maybe there won’t be any super rares this time

      January 26th, 2012 - 6:11pm


    • booboo

      January 26th, 2012 - 6:15pm

      it is possible (although i dont know) that if this the entire 2012 range that some could be exclusives like the Argos cybermen pack ie 5 Sontarans and one with helmet on

  • connor

    January 25th, 2012 - 8:34pm

    on the 8th picture down there is a black dalek, sontaron with mask, silent and judoon with mask and non of these are shown in the picture of series 3[img][/img][img][/img]

    • TheMadManWithABox1

      January 25th, 2012 - 9:21pm

      They might be the super rares

    • BOB

      January 25th, 2012 - 10:08pm

      The silent isn’t in series 3 it’s in series 2 but it’s on there because its in the silent time machine set , the judoon and sontaron have interchangeable masks and I don’t know about The black dalek

    • Chris97

      January 25th, 2012 - 11:58pm

      They DONT have interchangeable masks! Dalek Sec, Judoon Captain and Sotaran commander are rare with the Dalek, Judoon Trooper and Sontaran Trooper being the common version.

    • connor

      January 26th, 2012 - 7:15am

      so is the black dalek rare?

    • connor

      January 26th, 2012 - 7:19am

      they actually could come in army building sets. and black dalek?

    • Time And Relative Dimension In Space

      January 26th, 2012 - 6:13pm

      how do you now chris97

    January 25th, 2012 - 7:39pm

      i would of preferd it to come with amy tia and stetson doctor

  • Bigger on the Inside

    January 25th, 2012 - 6:35pm

    on the TGWW set the door open when you spin the wheels on top as on the box there are two arrows turning and the door open

    everyone has prob realised this by now – but ive just figured it out

    by the way this set looks AMAZING


    January 25th, 2012 - 5:17pm

    The Judoon helmet can’t be removable, as the ears are to big to get it on and off. I presume it’s the same with the Sontaron.

    • Time And Relative Dimension In Space

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:12pm

      well done booboo jr
      i guess then there will be 16 this year (YES)

    • Time And Relative Dimension In Space

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:14pm

      plus they cant be super rare #if they were they would have a different base

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:16pm

      I doubt it. The Handbot that is displayed is probably only from TGWW set, the river and Silent from the Silent TARDIS and the bronze Dalek from the Dalek spaceship! Just thought of it but you never know! 🙂

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:17pm

      Maybe they are just trying to trick us by using that one for super rares lol! 🙂 🙂 thats probably not true though.


      January 25th, 2012 - 6:20pm

      Cheers Time And Relative Dimension In Space, and King of the Cybermen, your theory on the figures from the sets is probaly wrong (Sorry!) as all the ones from the sets are on the promotion poster that says Series 3 in the right-hand corner.

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:22pm

      Oh yeah, silly me! 🙂 except the Silent though. Maybe the rest are super rares.
      PS: I’m king of the sontarans!

    • Time And Relative Dimension In Space

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:26pm

      is the cyberleader the one you can get in a five packs plus lovin the skull in the vashta nerada
      we need a peg doll,austonourt, ironside dalek and gangers


      January 25th, 2012 - 6:26pm

      I’ve realised your King of the Sontarans, you mentioned to me that you might change your name to King of the Cybermen soon! As for the Silent, I’m pretty sure it won’t be appearing in this Series. We had the Closed-Mouth one last Series, and the Open-Mouth is an Argos Exclusive so they can’t really re-release it. I think it was just on display as they used it in the Silent Time Machine Set.


      January 25th, 2012 - 6:28pm

      Time And Relative Dimension In Space, the one you can get in a Five pack is the AGMGTW Version (The one without a Cybus Logo on it’s chestplate) this is a Cybus one from The Next Doctor. It’s a small change, but essentially, a new figure.

    • Time And Relative Dimension In Space

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:31pm

      i wonder if e oods ball is disatachable

      plus my keybord is playing up on me

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:32pm

      The Cyberman I think is cool. And plus I can’t stand Greece anymore!!! 🙁 🙁

    • Time And Relative Dimension In Space

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:39pm

      I love these figures i collect them

    • Boodleoo

      January 26th, 2012 - 3:50pm

      In the promo pick it.s not the cybus logo

    • booboo

      January 26th, 2012 - 3:55pm

      its quite confusing as to what exactly is in series 3, there are 16 figures but one is a silent which i dont think should be there, character have said that is the line up so i dont know, we will have to wait for the official promo images probably

  • whofan4ever

    January 25th, 2012 - 5:16pm

    i want to make a handbot army and i want about 3 of the girl wh owaited set and connect them up and put a white wall between them and hopefully find my mini tardis and put that in one of them

  • whofan4ever

    January 25th, 2012 - 5:13pm

    the sontaran helmet is removable!!!

    this wave is the best yet without a doubt!!!

    it should be out soon because i didnt get enought time to get all of wave 1 and wave 2 was upon us so this should be out really really soon. and what is really annoying me is the fact that the only figure out of wave 1 and 2 that i dont have is river song!!!

    • whofan4ever

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:14pm

      sorry it isnt there is 2 different ones and same for the judoon


      January 25th, 2012 - 5:15pm

      How do you know the Sontaron Helmet is removable?


      January 25th, 2012 - 5:15pm

      Oh don’t worry, you’ve already answered before I asked the question 😀 .

  • whofan4ever

    January 25th, 2012 - 5:08pm

    they are making 10th/9th doctor enemies because of the eleven doctors set

    • dw2005

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:31pm

      They haven’t made any 9th doctor enemies yet, I really wish they would. We need something like a slitheen or an auton.


      January 25th, 2012 - 5:32pm

      Unless you count a Bronze Dalek as a 9th Doctor enemy?

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:36pm

      Auton all the way!!!!!


      January 25th, 2012 - 5:37pm

      Yeah, I’ve got to admit Slitheen and Autons would be cool!

    • dw2005

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:40pm

      Oh yeah, that is true, but we need something that only the 9th doctor faced. Gelth and the empty child would be another good idea for one. And they could create a playset for the church and the reapers from “father’s day”.


      January 25th, 2012 - 5:43pm

      I’d also like figures from 1st to 8th Doctor’s era, it would be possible as we’ve had the Doctors themselves in the Eleven Doctors Set.

    • dw2005

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:47pm

      They should release a set of at least 2 enemies from each doctor from 1-8.


      January 25th, 2012 - 5:48pm

      That would be good. Maybe one day…

    • dw2005

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:51pm

      I was thinking, maybe it mightbe a completely stupid idea, but what with they did sonic the hedgehog character building.

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:58pm

      I wouldn’t be interested.

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:58pm

      What about a SJA wave??


      January 25th, 2012 - 6:00pm

      Have to agree with King of the Cybermen, I wouldn’t be interested. But SJA could work.

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:04pm

      There could be:
      Sarah Jane
      Totem Pole
      Metal kind
      Dark Hoarde
      Mrs wormwood


      January 25th, 2012 - 6:21pm

      I wish Character would visit this Site, they could get so may brilliant new ideas!!!

  • Judooning

    January 25th, 2012 - 5:07pm

    These are my favourite. 1 = best.
    2 = worst.

    1. Judoon Captain
    2. Vashta Nerada
    3. Bronze Dalek
    4. Ood
    5. Sontaran trooper
    6. Judoon trooper
    7. Madme kovarian
    8. Sontaran leader
    9. Handbot
    10. Rory + eye patch
    11. Dalek sec
    12. Cyber controller/leaser
    13. River song
    14. 11th Dr green coat
    15. Silent Open mouth
    16. Amy + tally marks

    • Dr tyler

      January 25th, 2012 - 6:26pm

      Yeah oh yeah i collect these figures the vashta nerada is a bit late its old its should of been in series 1 of character building doctor who some one reply to my comment by the way

  • Anonymous

    January 25th, 2012 - 4:56pm

    I think the rarities will be this:


    Vashta Nerada
    Cyber Lord
    Madame Korvarian

    Dalek Sec
    Judoon Captain
    General Sontaren

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 25th, 2012 - 5:12pm

      The Silent isn’t in this wave I believe.


      January 25th, 2012 - 5:14pm

      Yeah, I think it’s just on display as they’ve used it in the Silent Time Machine Set. This series probably contains the other 15 figures, as the Deadly 60 one did.

  • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

    January 25th, 2012 - 4:46pm

    Oh and hope there’s a Sea Devil figure in Series 4!

  • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

    January 25th, 2012 - 4:39pm

    Slightly off topic but managed to get 3 packs of Deadly 60 figures today! Got the King Cobra, Polar Bear and Black Rhino! Eagerly awaiting more news on these though! 😀

    booboo do you know when these sets will come out, a date or the month they come out and what price will they be
    mini sets will probably be £10
    but how much will the dalek spaceship and the silence machine sets be????


    • Nathan

      January 25th, 2012 - 4:20pm

      Looking at the boxes, the Silence time macine only has 35 pieces more than TGWW set, so it will probably cost around £20.

  • King of the Cybermen

    January 25th, 2012 - 2:43pm

    I have a few questions, that I would appreciate if someone answered them:

    Is the Dalek Factory set worth it?

    Aren’t there supposed to be 10? Then why are there 16, does that mean 6 super rares?!

    When I go to a shop with CB figures, I always wondered where to get the box with the 30 packs (I think that’s how many), but I only see a box with packs that you buy sepretaly. Where can I get the box?

    Please answer! 🙂 🙂

    • Nathan

      January 25th, 2012 - 3:32pm

      The boxes of 36 packets are available from Forbidden planet, priced around £69.99, but you can also get them from places like amazon and Ebay for around the same price. There are 16 figures, and I don’t know for sure why. But my theory is that there are 10, and some come with the sets (River and Silent in Silence ship, Bronze Daleks in Dalek ship, Handbot in TGWW set, etc) and the Judoon and Sontarans are the same but with removable helmets. It could be possible that there are 16 though, because there are 15 Deadly 60 ones.

    January 25th, 2012 - 12:18pm

    BTW, ever done Travel and Tourism ?

    I’m at this subject now, we all use computers for the work.

    The work is , for me, difficult, because I don’t have good enough an idea of what it is we are trying to do.

    If the teacher gave a better explanation, and maybe sat with me at my computer for a minute, I’d be able to actually attempt something, but alas, the teacher and his desk, are one. ❓

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      January 25th, 2012 - 12:19pm

      Want a Doctor in Longcoat !

      They’ve made one for CB !

      With a bit more time, they should have one for the Series 6 5″ line aswell ! Don’t keep us waiting forever CO ! You’ve got a job and you dod that job well or not atall. 😆 ❗

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      January 25th, 2012 - 12:22pm

      “Do that job well”

      If I were a Co worker, I would get it right.

      The CB figure looks good, the image of the figure looks just right, but on the real figure, the Bowtie is brighter 🙁 and the coat brighter aswell. It should be a greenish BROWN, not a brownish GREEN !

      let’s hope the finnished product looks as good as the CB image, and they make a good 5″ version of this figure.

      And WHERE IS THE MINOTAUR ?!! ❗ ❓

  • I’m the doctor

    January 25th, 2012 - 8:00am

    I love these, I would love to get the microfigures and the mini set and if i could i would have the dalek spaceship but my mum won’t let me get it as she saw me have loads of trouble building my tardis console mega set. Hopefully if i save up money i could buy a silent time machine.

    I am still getting this set but booboo what is the point of the tardis set?
