    Does this mean Idris and Prison Doctor are out in wave 1A or if they are in 1B, does anyone else think this means rereleases or *figures yet unannounced*?

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      July 13th, 2011 - 2:35pm

      No. You’re trying to confuse ur self there m8. INSTEAD OF having variants/extras with this Wave 1, therhaving some of the recently announced figures coming out with them. 😯

      So you get Idris, Doctor in straightjacket, (Heaven forbid)uncle aswell.

    • Anonymous

      July 13th, 2011 - 3:12pm

      No these are with wave 2 not wave 1 (if they were with Wave 1 they would be available to pre-order or at least be shown on their website).

    • MadDoctorWhoFanWhoIsAwesomerThanTheDoctor

      July 13th, 2011 - 4:11pm

      Cant wait till Wave 2! Gonna be so awesome! Yes and those figures will be in wave 2 which will be awesome! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

    • Captain Mac

      July 13th, 2011 - 4:40pm

      yer, i prefer the silence with closed mouth, think i will be getting 2 of the closed mouth ones instead of 1 of each.

      This is not good. The way it looks, they probably haven’t mentioned him so he probably isn’t in it. πŸ‘Ώ

  • King Ninja

    July 11th, 2011 - 5:50pm

    Figures needed:

    Madam Vastra
    River Song
    Cyberman Varient and, not forgetting (though they have) Rory

    • DuckandGrouse

      July 12th, 2011 - 10:06am

      still no Rory! Are character trying to drive us insane!

    • Rory Doctor River Pond

      July 12th, 2011 - 10:29am

      But look at all of these amazing figures!!!

    • Doctor who 1234

      July 12th, 2011 - 5:52pm

      when is that tardis interior set coming out?

    • the dark horde

      July 12th, 2011 - 8:06pm

    • dalek95

      July 12th, 2011 - 8:49pm

      that tardis enterrior is ALLREADY OUT!!!!!! and yay uncle figure

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      July 12th, 2011 - 10:01pm

      You mean, YaY Idris figure. πŸ˜‰

  • Doctor who 1234

    July 10th, 2011 - 11:38pm

    I think that character building need to make companion sets like the 10th doctors companions or stuff like that because they have put out old doctors so why not old companions. Booboo if you could get in touch with character building about it I would actually love that and I’m sure many people would buy it too. Cheers get back to me on it

    • King Ninja

      July 11th, 2011 - 5:51pm

      Agreed! Great idea!

  • tom

    July 10th, 2011 - 10:44pm

    Character should do

    – Rory Williams
    – Amy Pond (In The Impossible Astronaut clothing)
    – The Astronaut, with removeable visor for little girl in the spacesuit.
    – The Doctor with blue shirt and red bow tie
    – Cyberman (A Good Man Goes To War)
    – Amy Pond (With Melody Pond in A Good Man Goes To War clothing)
    – River Song (with gun, and clothing fromD ay Of The Moon)

    • dalek95

      July 11th, 2011 - 6:10pm

      dont you mean rory pond rory took the surname as pond like in the big bang episode were they got married

    • Come along Pond

      July 12th, 2011 - 12:21am

      when did the Doctor wear a blue shirt with a red bow tie?

    • Anonymous

      July 12th, 2011 - 7:19am

      The Rory Pond was a joke made by the doctor, and I think he wears it in a future episode, but I can’t remember what episode he actully wore it in S6pt1

    • anthony

      July 12th, 2011 - 8:18pm

      in the awards clip intro he wore it and in the last 1

    • Anonymous

      July 12th, 2011 - 9:28pm

      The Doctor wore a blue shirt/red bow tie in A Good Man Goes to War, and as for Rory’s surname everyone thinks it’s Pond except from him so ir seems likely that it is Pond (but he doesn’t want to look as though Amy is in control of his life).

    • MadDoctorWhoFanWhoIsAwesomerThanTheDoctor

      July 13th, 2011 - 3:57pm

      I totally agree because there is no Rory figure yet!! I can’t believe that one of the doctors main companions has not been made. He will be in the Micro Figures Tardis Playset, but thats all. Hopefully he will come out later in the year. The astronaut would be an awesome figure because astronauts are awesome! A No No to the cyberman because they’ve already made loads of cybermen and the new cyber leader came out as a figure in the Next Doctor episode. River Song is a great idea, because they’ve only released her at the SDCC 2011.

  • daryl

    July 10th, 2011 - 9:32pm

    why dont they make the silurian from a good man goes to war.and another i woild like to see is the sontaran comander strax.what do you think,please reply!:idea:

    • Anonymous

      July 10th, 2011 - 9:48pm

      They have already released a Sontaran who is identical to Strax (even down to the armour) so it would be absolutely pointless re-releasing it.

    • daryl

      July 11th, 2011 - 9:47pm

      good point anonymos how about dourium or a headless monk
      plaese comment what you think

    • anthony

      July 11th, 2011 - 10:09pm

      i might get it is it coman der the one with funny tooth series 4 and the next doctor cyberman can i put them with my series 6 figs next week away for xmas

    • Androvax

      July 12th, 2011 - 7:00pm

      A Headless Monk with sword would be amazing but Dorium not as much, although they have now released Uncle so anything’s possible.

    • anthony

      July 12th, 2011 - 8:22pm

      so would it be commander score but just paint a tooth black and i hope thhey bring out a repainted next doc cyber leader [ glossy] head and new chess plate with preacher gun not for gettin [rory ] and river amy doctor figs xmas set single carded improved jacket and tadis white window like tardis 59 did a crackin custom

    • Jak

      July 13th, 2011 - 8:30pm

      and apparently there will be or is a Silurian from series 6 ep 7 cant wait 2 get Idris i dont hav one series 6 figure yet!

  • Reverse The Jelly Baby Of The Neutron Flow

    July 10th, 2011 - 8:02pm

    I think character options have not done well with figures they arent doing wat people want and they look bad and cheap! Uncle is only good with a Auntie double pack! Idris is good! the straight jacket Doctor I think is usless and the silence are amazing! What do you think!

    Also booboo have you ever thought of making a section for custom figures/character option micro figures I think it would be a good idea so people could post there customs on this site??!!??

    • booboo

      July 10th, 2011 - 8:10pm

      the problem is we are not a forum so its difficult to make new sections for things like this, having said that we are looking onto ways of doing this

    • booboo

      July 10th, 2011 - 8:14pm

      I will reserve judgement until i see that full wave and the actual figures. I do feel that we have missed out on some cracking figures in the past, Wilf and Jackson lake to name but 2

    • The Spaceman

      July 10th, 2011 - 9:31pm

      I think these figures are really good! I agree that the straight jacket doctor is useless but they don’t look cheep.


      July 11th, 2011 - 5:42pm

      i totally agree with The Spaceman. but i think the doctor in stetson and nephew are rubbish too

    • dalek95

      July 11th, 2011 - 6:13pm

      nephew isnt meant to have gloves on so that PROVES THAT THEY REPAINTED A OLD OOD I THINK THIS IS A RIP OFF what do you think booboo


      July 11th, 2011 - 6:46pm

      i also think you should have a custom page

    • anthony

      July 11th, 2011 - 10:15pm

      yeh the doctor with stettson is perfectic i made a custom imposible astro and the doctor xmas adventure fig new jacket so i reapainted the shirt pure white and boght some nigght blue paint and cut of and boiled the 4th docs hat not as good as the head on the new fig but the jacket and bowtie could of had a tweeck look how small and inacurate and dapolish idris and some others look boo boo would u say some of these figs look dapol and yeah like he said someone the charecter what there doin today no lights sound effects no movement no rory liz10

    • Come along Pond

      July 12th, 2011 - 12:27am

      I hate custom figures; they’re made by people who don’t have the patience to wait for a genuine release and they look cheap and tacky – also the articulation is not good at all – but, hey that’s my opinion; if you wanna deface your Doctor Who collectables, go ahead knock yourself out…

    • MadDoctorWhoFanWhoIsAwesomerThanTheDoctor

      July 13th, 2011 - 4:01pm

      Yes, Auntie Definitely needs to come out as well because CO have already hit a bump there. But a point needs to be made that figure need improving! Rory, River Song, Flesh Figures? What Happened to them? River Song has only been released in SDCC 2011 Figures – Who even goes to that anyway? CO need to improve or they will lose customers! What do you think?

    • The Spaceman

      July 13th, 2011 - 8:03pm

      I agree but I don’t think that character will loose customers, but some of the figures that they have released so far are not the best. River should’ve been released along with wave 1 instead of SDCC so we have to wait ages to get it! And as for Rory, its getting ridiculous.

    • The Spaceman

      July 13th, 2011 - 8:04pm

      And Ganger figures would be cool! :mrgreen:

    Figures they should not make or shouldn’t have made

    Doctor in white Jacket
    Doctor with stetson

    And for series 5 there should have been Auton Rory and a giant atraxi the size of the tardis because that would have been fun πŸ˜€

    there isn’t an Amy in Pirate Outfit. You might be confusing it with the Uncle Figure if you go to DoctorWhoToysNet you can see close ups of all th figures that are there and there is no Amy but thats not saying they won’t release in that outfit, but i would prefer her from the Opening Episode, because then you can use that figure in a full season of fig adventures and if she was in a pirate outfit then it would look silly!!!!1

      It ertainly would be a popular figure amongst children who are probablly going to be the majority of the market. Remember though, we might not have seen all the figures, they may have shown the pirate Amy but there are no pictures of it.
