    You could use the Tardis de-materialising mini set as the invisible TARDIS

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 28th, 2012 - 6:59am

      That’s actually one of the reasons they brought it out.

  • Shihan101 Productions

    January 28th, 2012 - 3:49am

    The silence time machine can be used as the Eighth Doctor’s TARDIS.

    if character are doing pre-Series 5 figures – then this could mean that there are more RTD era figures – HURRAY! This would be BRILLIANT!

    As well as this, they may decide to do Classic Series figures (some good ones would be Zygons and Sea Devils)

    Booboo did you get any pictures of the Ben 10 range?

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      January 27th, 2012 - 8:44pm

      No, he said so earlier ! Go to the Ben ten website, tell Tom Kenny (who voice acts on the series) I like him in spongebob, though I don’t watch ben 10 😆 !

      i dont like ben 10

  • dw2005

    January 27th, 2012 - 5:28pm

    I think we need a slitheen, an auton (Rose version), a sycorax, maybe a krillitane, The Master (From the End of time), maybe a flood monster, maybe a siren, maybe Idris, a ganger, a headless monk, a peg doll and an amy peg doll.

  • Klxl K3 89 10 .

    January 27th, 2012 - 4:14pm

    It’s really qutie sad, how little effort CO have put into the 5″ line since seeing the SHEER AMOUNT OF potential it would have if they did.

    Just look at all they’ve done for the CB here, I mean, I’m not saying the 5″ line for Series 6 needs something like a a Dalek Saucer set, just the characters and figures that are significant to the Series but have not yet been released for 5″ line, of that Series.

    Amy (S6 shirt and jeans )

    The Doctor in Longcoat (Closing time)

    Handbots ! (The Girl who Waited)

    Minotaur (God Complex)

      January 27th, 2012 - 5:12pm

      I think its cool how they make these things so far i have spent £682.00 on dr who and cb so i will be getting this

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      January 27th, 2012 - 8:48pm

      Woah, how do you keep track of all your spending habits ?! That is so much money, I’d never be comfortable spending htat much on toys, even though I love getting the 5″ figures ❗

      I spend about £50 (usually 54) in Forbidden planet nowadays, only go there once every half a year or so, don’t go often.

      If my parents knew, they’d be dissapointed, and dissaproving, with me ! Only buy the figures I really want, such as Idris, the Doctor figures without cowboy hat, and the Silence, need to get more !!! 😀


      January 27th, 2012 - 8:58pm

      I know, if I added up everything DW I’ve evr bought it would have cost me loads!

    • luke kelly

      January 27th, 2012 - 10:38am

    • luke kelly

      January 27th, 2012 - 10:45am

      will the doctor come with a base or a sonic screwdriver?

    • booboo

    • luke kelly

      January 27th, 2012 - 10:52am


  • Mels

    January 27th, 2012 - 9:50am

    I think the vashta nerada figure would completely freak me out. o_O 😮

    I’m guessing if there are any super-rares, one will be the Doctor in tux, since we now have a long coat version.

    • god of the whoniverse

      January 29th, 2012 - 8:44pm

      or stetson/fez&mop

  • Dalek Sec

    January 27th, 2012 - 5:49am

    I have many a list of sets for every series 6 epi.
    1. The Impossible Astronaut: The Oval Office with Canton and a Silent.
    2. A Day on the Moon: Silent Ship as shown above.
    3. The Curse of the Black Spot: Pirate Ship (duh)with a Siren and Capitan Avery.
    4. The Doctors Wife: Junk TARDIS with the Doctor and Idris.
    5. The Almost People/The Rebel Flesh: The Ganger Pod with Jennifer Lucas
    6. A Good Man goes to War: Rivers prison in the Stormcage with Riversong

    • Dalek Sec

      January 27th, 2012 - 6:32am

      7: Lets Kill Hitler: The Doctor in Berlin Set as shown above.
      8: Night Terrors: Peg Doll House with Peg Dolls(if any CB Peg Dolls)
      9: The Girl who Waited: The Set with the Handbots above.
      10: The God Complex: The Hotel Corridors with The Doctor and a Alien Minotaur.
      11: Closing Time: Cybership with Damaged Cybermen
      12: The Wedding of Riversong: The Headless Monks Head Storage, or the Silence Containment.

    • Jjpj

      January 28th, 2012 - 8:16am

      What about siren hospital
      Includes siren and boatswain

    • Dalek Sec

      February 1st, 2012 - 6:32am

      Thats a good idea as well. But you could just customize the Handbot set.

  • The Oncoming Storm

    January 26th, 2012 - 10:13pm

    for once the figure i want the most is the doctor!!! hope he’s not rare

    • Dalek Sec

      January 27th, 2012 - 5:32am

      I hope Dalek Sec’s not rare. As you can see from this name, he’s my favorite Dalek.

    • Mels

      January 27th, 2012 - 10:00am

      I’m not sure which is the final wave makup (if there is one yet, since there are more than 10 figures shown…) but if there’s only one doctor figure in the next wave, I suspect it will be common.

      The Daleks however… I think the black dalek might end up being a set exclusive or released in a later wave. But it’s too early to tell.

    • Liason Ice

      January 28th, 2012 - 6:02am

      I think that if there are super rares (hope not) that they will be.
      1. Dalek Sec
      2. Amy with Tally marks
      3. Rory with eye drive
      4. Madam Kovarian
      5. Sontaran without helmet

  • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

    January 26th, 2012 - 9:12pm

    Since there are probably gonna be super rares I wouldn’t be surprised to see these ones:
    The Doctor with top hat and tails and sonic cane
    Hologram Amelia
    Amy Pond (The Wedding Of River Song)

    • cheesy ood (wasTime And Relative Dimension In Space)

      January 26th, 2012 - 9:17pm

      i know this sounds stupid but what does hologram mean
      The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

    • booboo

      January 26th, 2012 - 9:21pm

      A projected 3d image made of light

    • cheesy ood (wasTime And Relative Dimension In Space)

      January 26th, 2012 - 9:25pm

      so the amielia from the god complex

    • cheesy ood (wasTime And Relative Dimension In Space)

      January 26th, 2012 - 9:25pm

      we do need an amielia

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 26th, 2012 - 9:58pm

      Hologram Amelia was in Lets Kill Hitler. Let’s just hope CO don’t get any ideas from that and make “gulp” Hologram Rose.

    • dw2005

      January 27th, 2012 - 5:16pm

      I wouldn’t mind a hologram Rose.

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 27th, 2012 - 6:44pm

      If they make a series 1 Rose I’ll be ok with that. If they make a series 2 and beyond Rose then it’ll be kept well away from my usual CB figures.

  • cheesy ood (wasTime And Relative Dimension In Space)

    January 26th, 2012 - 9:07pm

    ohps :mrgreen:
    The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus) you win LOL

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 26th, 2012 - 9:13pm

      Lol thanks! Glad I could suggest!

  • starzook

    January 26th, 2012 - 8:43pm

    when are they out

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 26th, 2012 - 8:57pm

      If they follow the same way as last year then expect an early release in April and a full release in May.

  • dr tyler

    January 26th, 2012 - 8:32pm

    its a bit ofa waste of time even though i love the figures your just gonna get a load of doubles

    • dw2005

      January 27th, 2012 - 5:17pm

      There should be more, so we don’t get so many doubles.

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 26th, 2012 - 8:23pm

      I’m a Hanbot now! Handbots are cool!
      Of course The Doctor would have to be in disguise whilst saying that or he’s going to an awkward fancy dress party.

    River – YES!
    Kovarian – Brilliant!
    Sontatan – Amazing!!
    Vashta Nerada – meh
    Judoon – meh
    Ood – Really good
    Dalek – Alright
    Cyber-Leader – variants arent good!
    Hand-Bot – Very Nice!

    Let’s Kill Hitler set – Meh
    Dematerialise TARDIS – pointless unless your making stop-motion films.
    Girl Who Waited Set – amazing-ness!
    Dalek Ship – meh
    Silence TARDIS set – AMAZING!!

    Now we need Craig, Van Gogh and a tenth Doctors TARDIS

    • dw2005

      January 26th, 2012 - 4:59pm

      My view on all of this is:
      The Doctor – Fantastic!
      Amy – Another annoying variant.
      Rory – Ok.
      River – Good.
      Kovarian – Great.
      Sontatan – Great.
      Vashta Nerada – Fantastic!
      Judoon – Ok.
      Ood – Good

      Hand-Bot – AWESOME!

      Let’s Kill Hitler set – Not intersted.
      Dematerialise TARDIS – a pointless set.
      Girl Who Waited Set – Amazing.
      Dalek Ship – Ok.
      Silence TARDIS set – Good.

      I think we need a headless monk, a slitheen and a peg doll.

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 26th, 2012 - 8:11pm

      The Doctor- Dissapointed that it’s the Closing Time version of the outfit but hey it’s still a fantastic figure
      Amy- Not amazing but I still like it
      Rory- Great
      River- Would have preferred her from Lets Kill Hitler (oh the scene recreations we could make) but it’s still pretty good
      Kovarian- Fat! Seriously she’s fat!
      Sontaran- Long time coming but it looks great
      Vashta Nerada- Brilliant
      Judoon- Meh
      Ood- Should have been Nephew
      Dalek- Great
      Cyberleader- Terrible- oh wait I’m looking at the Cybus logo!
      Handbot- No words to describe it

    • The Wooden Prince (Previously Admiral Icktheus)

      January 26th, 2012 - 8:15pm

      Lets Kill Hitler Set- Meh. It’s not good and I’m surprised they got the guard in there
      TARDIS- Don’t mind it but i’m dissapointed at the figures inside the set
      The Girl Who Waited Set- Easily the best of the lot
      Dalek Ship-Meh
      Silent Time Machine- Ok

    • dr who fan 4 ever

      January 26th, 2012 - 9:46pm

      The Doctor-alright
      amy- just another boring figure
      rory- at least there is a rory

      ood-at last
      dalek-it’s just plain
      cyberleader-not intrested
      handbot-the best of them all

      lets kill hitler set-not intrested
      the girl who waited set-is simply the best
      dalek saucer-intrested

  • god of the whoniverse

    January 26th, 2012 - 4:35pm

    juging by this i think character’s 5″ line will include:

  • Boodleoo

    January 26th, 2012 - 3:52pm

    Whats a cyberslime pod?

    • booboo

      January 26th, 2012 - 3:53pm

      like the goo pod but with a Character Building figure

    • PandoricaOwner

      January 26th, 2012 - 4:09pm

      Booboo , do you have a picture of this cyberslime pod or even a description from yourself?

    • booboo

      January 26th, 2012 - 4:12pm

      It not a very good one as its blown up form the corner of one of our images but you can see it


      January 26th, 2012 - 4:15pm

      Just another way to shift old figures, hopefully they’ll be differnet to the Temporal Combat ones.

    • Boodleoo

      January 26th, 2012 - 6:38pm

      I’m guessing that it will be more expensive than buying the blind packets.

    • resistance0905

      January 26th, 2012 - 6:58pm

      They seem to miss the obvious tricks sometimes. Why not include an exclusive Doctor variant in the slime pod? I for one would definitely buy it just to own the variant, but have no intension of buying it for yet another duplicate figure.

    • Boodleoo

      January 26th, 2012 - 7:13pm

      yeah same and if there just putting in duplicate figures in then there’s no way of telling if it’s another doctor for example because at least you get to feel around the blind packets which you can’t with these.

  • King of the Cybermen

    January 26th, 2012 - 3:27pm

    Booboo, where you wrote on the CB list Berlin set, you wrote by mistake Roy instead of Rory. Just thought to tell you. 🙂 🙂

    • booboo

      January 26th, 2012 - 3:36pm

      yes havent finished yet

  • King of the Cybermen

    January 26th, 2012 - 12:36pm

    This is the list that I like from 16 the worse to 1 the best!!

    16 – Dalek Sec – It’s just ok, not too keen on the colour!
    15 – Sontaran General ( probably Staal) – Don’t like his head.
    14 – Rory with Eye Patch – he actually looks good, but couldn’t get at least in my top 10!!
    13 – Judoon Trooper – Just ok.
    12 – The Doctor – I like it, prefer it than the normal one, still not keen on it though…
    11 – Amy with Tally Marks – She’s good, but couldn’t fit her in top 5. 🙁
    10 – Ood – Very good and I’m quite pleased, but it’s not THE best.

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 26th, 2012 - 12:46pm

      9 – 1:
      8 – Judoon Captain – quite cool, so I put it in Top 10!
      7 – Sontaran Trooper – Cool!
      6 – Silence – We’ve seen it before, but I still like it!
      5 – Handbot – One word: AWESOME!
      4 – Madame Kovarian – Very very please with it!!!
      3 – Vashta Nerada – It’s amazing!
      2 – River Song – Best river figure we’ve had yet!!
      1 – Cyber Leader – It’s FANTASTIC!!!! 🙂 🙂

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 26th, 2012 - 12:49pm

      Ok we have had a mistake! Judoon Captain is 9, Sontaran Trooper is 8 and silence is. 7, putting Dalek in 6!! 🙂

  • McGann is the Doctor.

    January 26th, 2012 - 9:01am

    I gotta say, I don’t buy the Cb line, but these are some great ideas !

    The Tardis Invisable ? It’s see-through ! You could see the figures inside, so cool ! Even though it would break the illusion of the tardis being transindental. :/

    And the new figure of hte Doctor in Longcoat looks great, wish there was a 5″ figure, and the Minotuar, Handbots aswell as the Series 6 Amy. ❗

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      January 26th, 2012 - 9:09am

      P.S I want an Amy from Impossible astronaught, with that checkerdy shirt and jeans. (Still talking 5″ line)

      And how cool they have done the REAL Daleks now ! (CB line) 😀

    • King of the Cybermen

      January 26th, 2012 - 12:24pm

      I do too, plus the one from Night Terrors and The Rebel Flesh! 🙂

      Amy’s best fashion sense was shown on Rebel Flesh (shame her clothes were just ganger flesh goo). But that figure needs an 5 inch figure, or at least an CB figure. (I prefer it being 5 inch)

    i think now is a time to discuss super rare figures because there are none in the picture.

    super rare:
    the doctor with tie and tails & sonic cane
    the astronaut with exchangable heads
    soothsayer doctor
    more ideas coming soon

      They have before usually been varients of others, so only the first and third would work.
      But cool ideas anyway 😀

      i just figured that if the astronaut came with a river and little girl heads then that would count because river is in series 3! 💡

      Because of the amount of people who would like a astronaut I doubt there make it a super rare, but maybe the river from silence in the library.

    Is the Silent in the ‘Silent Time Machine Set’ a open mouth or closed mouth?

      The open mouth silent was a Argos exclusive I doubt they would put it in a set.
