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.

      Cant see how you will see it tomorrow as the episode has not aired yet. We have pics of the others already but will only show them when we are told we can.

      From the photos you’ve taken (and been given) have the figures improved from the last time you saw them? Also in the official images of the B&M set, do they perhaps show what the third figure in the set is?

    • booboo

      January 21st, 2020 - 10:30pm

      there are no official images of the B&M set yet, only Ryan and Yaz were (unusually for an exclusive) on display, toy fair images are embargoed until we are told otherwise sadly.

    • The Destroyer of Worlds

      January 21st, 2020 - 10:38pm

      Ah okay, sorry I thought when you said you had photos from them I thought you meant that they gave you official photos. That’s a little confusing, I don’t know why they’d show two exclusives from a B&M set but not the rest of the set and the wave.

    • booboo

      January 21st, 2020 - 10:40pm

      think it because we have already seen Ryan and Yaz on twitter but also to reassure we are getting them in a future set.

    Fabulous. The Recon Dalek, at Last , and The Graham Figure looks brilliant, as Does the 13th Doctor.

    I am hoping the B & M sets of 3 figures (well thats what they seem to have done usually) Have another Jodie Variant (with goggles would be nice) to go with Yaz & Ryan. But that might be pushing it, with THREE new figures in one box set. Hopefully these are out before end of series. Sorry moaning over. Yeahhh

      Al Dewar, I believe actually left a link to one on his twitter or something (haven’t seen it myself, but heard others talking of it) I presume it must have been too expensive to print them or something…

      very tight budget on this one, expensive printed card interiors not viable at retailer RRP’s requirements.

      I feel like that is kinda ridiculous that they couldnt include a piece of card to be honest, if it is really such a price constraint, they should have priced it £21.99, and included the card, because now it will look bad when doors opened

    • booboo

      January 21st, 2020 - 10:53pm

      retailers say the price points and margins they want, if its £19.99 without card and that’s what they want that’s what happens. To much blame is put on character as usual. You do what the customer wants, not what other people think should happen.

      I think an image exsists from when we first got our first pictures of Yaz, Ryan and Graham with the Tardis. It did have a card insert as you can see it! Not sure whether it’s on the one now shown at Toy Fair

      I feel like, due to the Ryan and Yaz situation, they are putting a greater deal of emphasis on the B&M range, and therefore perhaps wanted one, constant design layout across all merchandise, modern and classic… kinda a shame as I feel I preferred the colourful version, but whatever, its the products that count…

    The images are starting to make their way all over instagram, so I presume they must be okay, to go (or someone leaked them)

    They look even better than I was expecting. Especially the Tardis and Graham, both of which I was a little worried about, but they look amazing.

    Also, Jodies more accurate hair colouring and a cheaper way to get a dalek mutant… this. Is. AWESOME!!!

    So I guess this is pretty encouraging, if you think about the fact, we now have a larger range of figures for 13’s era, based on 1 season, than we got from 3 of Capaldis.

    12’s era:
    – 3 characters recievieved action figures (12, Missy and Bill)

    13’s era (so far, hopefully more to come)
    – 6 characters have recieved action figures (13, Graham, Ryan, Yaz, Judoon Captain and Recon Dalek)
    – I suspect, if these are popular then it would be easy (with minimal tweaking) to create a Judoon trooper and 2020 X-mas special Dalek leader as well as Drones (2005 bronze model + recon dalek claw) and we need a Dahwan Master as well!

    (I’m aware the only truly ‘original’ figure sculpt for 13s era so far has been the dalek, with all the other, to varying degrees being a mix and match of pre-existing figures, but they have some new sculpt, so I’m counting them, i.e. thats why I call Bill an ‘original’ and not the ‘Not-as-seen-on-TV’ Clara figure.

      She wore a pink shirt in Rosa, Arachnids in the UK (at the end), The Tsuranga Conundrum and Demons of the Punjab in Series 11, and has so far worn it in Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror in S12, but will wear it in future eps.
