Toy Fair 2020 News Round up 5.5″ figures and Construction Kits

Its that time of year again and our annual visit to the toy fair proved worthwhile.

On display at the Character stand were:

  • 13th Doctor TARDIS
  • Judoon with Gun
  • Reconnaissance Dalek (with Dalek mutant accessory)
  • Graham O’brien
  • The Thirteenth Doctor (with bag and sonic screwdriver accessories) purple top

These items are now available to order from www.forbiddenplanet.com

They will also available to order at a later date from www.character-online.com

These are due in late February, Figures have an RRP of £12.99 and the (lights and sound) Tardis £24.99

Also on display were Yaz and Ryan who will be included in an upcoming 13th Doctor B&M set!

The 13th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver was also on display and it should be noted everything is now in the “Classic Blue” style guide, as per the B&M sets.


One of the good things about the toy fair is that you come across things that you knew nothing about and this year it was 3 metal construction kits due towards the end of the year.

These kits are big and include The Tardis, K9 and a Dalek. They may look a little basic to some but we are back to the good old days of, well you know, those construction sets we all loved. These are great.


On a side note we spent a good, and very rewarding few hours with Eaglemoss outside of the event.

    Hopfully we’ll get an update from character online today about the status of these figures. (as today’s the day they said they might get them).
    hopefully we’ll get a more solid date, although going by amazon and FP with the March 13th date I doubt they got them today.

    Just got my Reconnaissance Daleks today!! Just opened the parcel. Ordered them from a toy seller on eBay. They look as good as I’d hoped. Darker, more vibrant brown than I’d expected and great paint apps. And the Dalek mutant included is something we’ve never seen before.
    Just great to see a totally new sculpt for a Dalek from Character Options! Am I right in thinking the last new 5″ sculpt was the New Paradigm Daleks all of ten years ago? Probably that, unless one of the Classic Dalek sets came out since then.

    So after seeing these listed as in stock on characters website and ordering them, I’ve been informed by character onlines customer service that they are delayed until the 9th march earliest.

      They seem to do this quite frequently. The ‘In Stock’ date rarely sticks

      Just went to Forbidden Planet London about 1 hour ago and all they had was the 13th Doctor Electronic TARDIS – of which they had approximately 12 TARDIS sets.

      Thanks for letting me know, much appreciated. Strange choice to include it on the back of the box if it’s not going to be released as part of the current wave.

    Pre-ordered the ones we can get so far from Forbidden Planet.

    I’ve contacted the big three Supermarkets who stocked the Figures in the past to see if they’ve got anything coming.

    Spoke to Argos recently too, the associate who I spoke to said if they’re not in the new catalogue, it’s unlikely, but saying that, they didn’t leave me with the most confidence with how passive the response was. One wonders if it’s possible for a Summer release though with the next Catalogue? May have more products by then *Fingers crossed*.

    Has the final CO figure been released yet? the Judoon with Gun.

    CO nor Forbidden planet, have the figure up for pre order. I want to order the set, but am waiting for the 5th one, before i do, or i will get charged double postage.

    I understand the B&M third figure with Ryan and Yaz, wont be known for a while yet.

    Read there is a new Dalek set coming? Is this Big Finish like before or 3 packs from the classic series? I’m personally hoping for the latter.

    When is the Judoon Captain figure being released now? Wonder why it was embargoed in the first place when we knew since last year they were coming back? Maybe with a removable horn thanks to Ruth?
