Character Building Series 3 What’s in The Box – Updated

Character Building Series Three – What’s in The Box

Build your Doctor Who micro-figure collection with all new Series 3 micro-figures featuring characters from the hit TV show.

Each highly detailed and fully articulated micro-figure is sealed within a secret bag, so you never know which Doctor Who Micro-figure you are going to get!

And every character has its own Doctor Who display base and collectors leaflet highlighting all the characters available in Series 3.

There are 12 micro-figures to collect. One supplied. Dalek micro-figures do not include display base.


  • Handbot
  • Dalek
  • Doctor
  • CyberController


  • Ood
  • Sontaran Trooper
  • Amy Pond


  • Madame Kovarian
  • Vashta Nerada
  • Rory Williams
  • Judoon Trooper
  • River Song

The breakdown of an unopened box…

Some of the actual figures…

    All my shops have gone bust of series 3. Tesco used to have a box – now gone. Game used to have a stack of packets – now gone. John Lewis has lost every Character Building Doctor who toy. Hope i manage to find more soon

    Just ordered three army builders off ebay brand new for only £9.99!!!! silence,argos cybermen,weeping angels. Finally managed to get a green coat doctor for £3.49 which is a good deal considering how many tries it would take me to find him in a packet. They had green dress river for £4.99 i’ll get her some other time though.

    Went into ace comics again today and got another sontaran and a cyber-controller 😥 I’m giving up hope that i will ever get a doctor i just need a doctor i have monsters i would happily be rid of just to get the doctor!!! 🙁

      The doctor is really common. Just feel for the little sonic screwdriver in the pack

    • legofreak86

      already tried that! I ended up with an ood!!! They appear to have hidden the figures by putting the stand of the figure at the front and the figure itself behind it.I found a doctor and river on ebay for cheaper than it will cost me to carry on buying packs til i get the ones i want so i might just forget buying blind packets and get the ones i want from there…

      they should make the doctor the rarest so you would get drones

      Its still really easy to feel for figures. Yesterday i.could get one so i felt tgough the bpx. I foumd rory, 2 sontarens and river. But i was looking for the vashta nerda. I bought 1 packet and got it right. So thats the vashta.nerada added to my.collection.

      For the Doctor you need to feel for the bottom of the coat where it sticks out.

    Went into Ace Comics today and found some series 3 figure blind bags.I managed to get a sontaran,vashta nerada,bronze dalek and an ood. I really wanted the 11th doictor in green coat the most Now i am left with 10 monsters including ones my sister gave to me and from the monster pack. I just find it hard to believe that i didn’t end up with the most common figure!!!! I’ll buy another pack tomorow to try to get a amy versus 10 monsters is not really that useful!!! 🙄

    i brought the whole box from Tesco’s a couple of weeks ago- and it had 42 packs inside! i got about 3 of each character except madam kovarian which i didn’t get any of. Is she the rarest out of the lot or something?

    • Mr Vector

      November 8th, 2017 - 5:41pm

      yes. sadly,yes

  • The Surgeon

    April 4th, 2013 - 4:21pm

    Does anyone know if the Sontaran and Judoon helmets come off?
    I really want a Vashta Nerada, but given there are only two in a box, I won’t bother because it will be too much if I buy them until I get one.

    • drjakeyoung

      April 4th, 2013 - 4:23pm

      no, they don’t.

      You can take them off, but its just a peg under it as with every other figure (so the helmet effectively is the head).

    • DoctorWhoFan101

      April 13th, 2013 - 2:46pm

      You can get the Sontaran and Judoon helmet off in a future dr who cb set. They’re doing it alongside a cyberman, an ood and a silurian. But it doesn’t come with a helmet (to my knowlage)

    they should do a 5 inch figure of madmae kovarian

  • The Flying Shark

    March 9th, 2013 - 4:04pm

    I got two more today, they were brilliant! I got a Judoon and a Vashta Nerada.

      February 16th, 2013 - 4:05pm

      Just thought, if you combine the body of the Vashda Nervada with the head of River Song, you get a “River in Space Suit” variant from Silence in the Library 🙂

    • booboo

      February 4th, 2013 - 11:43am

      guy in an orange spacesuit is the 10th Doctor is a super rare so you should have the certificate in the packet and you need to send in a picture

    • Angel Of Death

      February 9th, 2013 - 7:37pm
