Character Options announces a 5.5” Scale Thirteenth Doctor Figure

The new collectible will be available for pre-sale from 1st December 2018

Character Options has announced details of the next item in its 2018 Doctor Who collection; a 5.5-inch scale figure of the Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker.

Renowned for its highly detailed 5.5 -inch figures, this latest collectible from Character will delight fans who are celebrating the brand new TV series which launched on BBC One on 7th October.

The figure depicts the newly regenerated Time Lord dressed in her high-waisted culottes, rainbow striped dark blue shirt and coat. Carrying the essential sonic screwdriver, the figure comes with multiple points of articulation.

Mark Hunt from Character Options commented: “From the moment we announced details of the 10” Thirteenth Doctor figure in late August, we have been inundated with questions about a 5.5-inch scale version. We are therefore delighted to be able to reveal details of this latest Doctor Who release.”

The new figure costs £12.99. It will be available from late December, and can be ordered on pre-sale from 1st December 2018

    Mine arrived from Amazon today. Great figure, although I wish she had more articulation, but I understand why she doesn’t.

    Has the 3.75inch range been abandoned? I haven’t seen or heard of any new figures for a while.

      It’s long gone. They never even released Wave 5.

      I miss the 3.75 scale. Would’ve loved a 4th Doctor, Missy, and 13th Doctor in this scale, as well as series 10 12th doctor.

    The London megastore have these in now. I bought another one (I’ve now got 3). One of them has a dodgy box, so I’ll open that one.

    After my Amazon US order was canceled, I was later able to reorder with Amazon UK. However, now they’re showing “Usually dispatched within 1 to 3 months” with my estimated arrival date switched to “Arriving 16 Feb – 2 Apr”.

    Did they sell out of their first batch? Or did they never get any?
    Did anyone get one from Amazon UK?

    Does anyone know when forbidden planet will dispatch this, as it comes out in a few days , and I don’t have one near me ☹️

      January 5th, 2019 - 5:06pm

      their warehouse may have been closed over Xmas and new year to take deliveries possibly, is its not sent put by Tuesday i would email them, Amazon haven’t got theirs either

    • Anonymous

      Because it comes out on the 9th it will probably dispatch on the 10th or 11th and arrive on the 13th or 14th!

      I picked up from Forbidden Planet in Glasgow last week. Cheaper than paying extra for the postage.

      I’ve given in and ordered it off amazon, only a couple pounds more than on fp

    I’m actually disappointed with Forbidden Planet I ordered this when it was preorder and they are still yet to dispatch it. Lucky I have a Forbidden Planet International close, they had them in stock reasonably early.

    That’s the second batch of figures on Characters website sold out.

  • The 15th Doctor

    January 5th, 2019 - 11:25am

    Does anybody know what delivery option Character uses? (Royal Mail or a courier etc). My order got dispatched yesterday but I checked out as a guest so not able to track the order, if it was even possible.

      I had my x4 13th Doctor Figures arrive today and they were delivered via Royal Mail
      Hope this Helps

      Spends on where you have orders it from as amazon doesn’t have stock atm so I cancelled my order and switched to character and it was shipped within a day

    The Amazon UK link is no longer showing a £12.99 out of stock option – it now just has 2 in stock options, both of which are shockingly overpriced options.

    • Anonymous

      January 3rd, 2019 - 11:58pm

      That’s why I cancelled my order and switched to character

      seen this happen so many times once a third party seller adds stock the Amazon option vanishes until stock arrives.

      I message amazon about it last night and the person I was love chatting with said that they would sort it out cause I have my pre ordered with amazon

      No, not at the moment. I was in there on Christmas Eve & to be honest all the shelves looked pretty bare of any stock for anything.

      December 31st, 2018 - 7:23pm

      Yes I agree. I was there just this morning! I was in shock when I saw the odd titan and nothing else! Hopefully they were doing well cost wise!

  • Grant

    Got one last week in FP Manchester. No idea if they’ll be any left now. Just don’t fall into the trap of paying a fortune on eBay from those who managed to get it early! I’m sure it’ll be easy to get once it’s officially released.

      might know after the toy fair

    • The Outcast

      December 30th, 2018 - 1:32pm

      When is the Toy Fair?

    • the 14th doctor

      December 30th, 2018 - 1:38pm

      some time in January i think?

    • The Outcast

      December 30th, 2018 - 2:31pm

      Just googled it. It’s on the 22nd to 24th of January.

    • Dalek The Supreme

      December 30th, 2018 - 4:42pm

      I hope so. Otherwise I have no idea if we’ll be seeing any of the monsters or companions from Series 11. I’m also annoyed that we still don’t have any 5 inch figures of the Series 7 Cybermen or Ice Warriors.

    • the 14th doctor

      December 30th, 2018 - 5:28pm

      my dream is that one day the classic line will return

    • The Outcast

      December 31st, 2018 - 5:43am

      I think we all dream of the return of the Classic line…

      Anyway, I’d hope we’ll see something new at the Toy Fair. Perhaps the 13th Doctor TARDIS toy that was listed a while back? Though, I’m not going to hold too high hopes.

      December 31st, 2018 - 1:49pm

      I’m sure the re-vamped colour scheme daleks from ‘Resolution’ will feature sometime in 2019?

    • The Outcast

      December 31st, 2018 - 2:10pm

      If it’s a design that would require new moulding, I doubt we’d be seeing it anytime soon. But if its a simple repaint of a previous design, then it’s possible they’ll be able to get a prototype done by the Toy Fair (not to mention something I’d buy if they actually released).

    • Emperor Omega

      January 5th, 2019 - 3:07pm

      I hope so. I’d like a few of those Recon Scout Daleks lined up.

    Good news for Americans! Amazon US is making these available (sold by “Amazon Global Store UK”), or you can order then from Either way, it comes to around $21 US including shipping, if you select the slightly slower shipping. Shipping is much cheaper than I paid for the Bill figure from Amazon UK.

    It’s listed as “Temporarily out of stock”, just as the Bill figure was when I ordered it.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    • David

      January 3rd, 2019 - 11:10am

      Well, Amazon canceled US orders. Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything here!
