Character Building Super Rare’s Series 3

The figures include only 500 of the Eleventh Doctor in tuxedo, 250 each of Rory in his nurse’s uniform and River Song in a catsuit, and just 100 each of Amy with tally marks and a space-suited Tenth Doctor.

Mark Hunt, Brand Manager for Character, commented:The first and second series of super rare micro-figures were such a hit that we just had to add some super rare figures to the new collection. There is a huge demand for these figures which are findable… but it is a challenge!

Each also comes with a golden ticket of authenticity.

    it’s a shame that they had to do more super rare figures, i think the doctor should have came with his top hat and cane.


    December 11th, 2012 - 10:02am

    That Amy is in my opinion the best character options mini figure they have ever done! I might actually buy that on eBay!

    I like them, but find it really annoying that this is now the fourth batch of Super Rares – guess my bank balance is going to take another hit once these start hitting eBay as doubtful I’ll ever find them in blind bags.

      Fourth? If there’s a super rare set each for series 1, 2, and 3, what’s the fourth set?

    • the living shadow

      January 21st, 2013 - 6:29pm

      I’m not to sure but apparently they made a S-rare 11 Doctors set

    • doctorpond393

      December 11th, 2012 - 10:50am

      There is
      River: Feel for hair, but has no skirt to feel for as with series 3
      Amy: Nothing really
      Rory:Again nothing
      10th Doctor: Head and sonic
      11th: Nothing.

    I’m disappointed with them, but my favourite is The 10th Doctor.

    Rory kinda looks like he’s holding something…but what??

      My bad just his hand /)_-

    • Douglas Fir

      December 11th, 2012 - 9:22am

      I would assume he’s holding a mobile phone given the costume (Eleventh Hour) – it does look like he’s holding something to me.

    What about some monsters rather than companions!

  • DavidH

    December 10th, 2012 - 9:49pm

    Wow, 10th Doctor Super Rare! Did not see that one coming

    • The Driver

      December 10th, 2012 - 9:53pm

      Yes, that was quite a surprise!

  • Judooning

    December 10th, 2012 - 9:17pm

    Love the 10th Doctor! And at least the Judoon Captain and Sontaran Leader aren’t Super rare and should be available soon in packs or something along those lines πŸ™‚

  • Doctor Who Crazy Ross

    This Looks Cool!

  • Im new

    December 10th, 2012 - 9:07pm

    I got straight doctor jacket last time.only one I rly want is Amy!!

  • John Colwell

    December 10th, 2012 - 8:51pm

    Rubbish practice and having emailed CB about Dr Who Figs in the past it does not suprise me that they have no clue what their customers really want.

    These guys are just wasting so many opportunites with this range its rather sad

    Also what happenned to the bare headed Sontaran and Judoon

      and dalek sec

  • Ian

    December 10th, 2012 - 8:50pm

    These look good but this time I am not buying loads of them to try and find them. However a Judoon and a Sontaran should be easy to feel through the packet. Those I want and the Dalek.

    Also apart from FP and Hamleys in Cardiff who else is selling these? A new Tesco that has just opened near me is still selling series 2.

  • Esterath

    December 10th, 2012 - 8:44pm

    STUPID idea! No-one will ever get them in packs!


    December 10th, 2012 - 8:35pm

    not bothered. rivers clothes are quite revealing. i do not approve. i am vaguely bothered about amy though…

    • The Driver

      December 10th, 2012 - 9:51pm

      No objections or anything, but what!


      December 11th, 2012 - 6:22pm

      just joking! it is bit wierd though. i am not bothered about any of these.

  • That Snowman over there

    December 10th, 2012 - 8:34pm

    The Super Rares? A hit? πŸ˜•

    • DavidH

      December 10th, 2012 - 9:51pm

      They’ve sold for up to Β£300 on eBay. Clearly if people are willing to pay that much for a figure that the seller bought for Β£2, they have to be considered a hit

  • The Monitor

    December 10th, 2012 - 8:29pm

    Interesting that we find out now about the super rares, yet no one that I have met or have seen on the net has found one. Boxes may have initially been limited, but many thousands of packets must have already been opened, which makes me wonder if it is only the second wave of boxes to hit the UK that have them.

    Great to see etc but a shame if all those loyal fans who now already have a full set stood no chance of a super rare. I hope I am wrong, but evidence would suggest otherwise.

    December 10th, 2012 - 8:21pm

    Maybe this Series I’ll be able to find a Super Rare, but then again, maybe not πŸ™

  • Jamie

    December 10th, 2012 - 8:01pm

    Just saw the image earlier! They look pretty cool, just a shame I will never get them. πŸ™
