    Is their more tardis than the 3rd doctor release and are they going to be easy to find this time?

    • Anonymous

      Yes, there’s more released for longer in an attempt to avoid the whole B&M fiasco

  • Christopher Eccleston’s fez

    August 15th, 2019 - 10:01am

    Booboo I know this is a brand new release but just to clarify is this a brand new sculpt for the Tardis unique to the previous ones released before it?

    • booboo

      August 15th, 2019 - 10:07am

      no the “body” of the Tardis is the same just painted to resemble the 5th Doctors Tardis, the base however has been retooled and the much thinner

    • Christopher Eccleston’s fez

      August 15th, 2019 - 11:04am

      Ah okay, thanks. And which doctors’ Tardis does the fifth doctors one take after?

    • booboo

      August 15th, 2019 - 11:42am

      its the same as the 1st and 7th Doctors Tardis but with different decor and modified base

    • Christopher Eccleston’s fez

      August 15th, 2019 - 3:17pm

      Ah okay, thank you!

    I suppose if they can modify the base, it would be nice to see a 1966 tardis roof one day thats accurate, rather than the flat roof of the 4th doctor tardis

    Do you think we could get an interim set of this with a cleaner design (without the sand on the base)

    • booboo

      August 7th, 2019 - 8:59am

      i think that will be it until next years sets

    Hi everyone
    Can I ask is this the first time the fifth doctors Tardis has been released?
    I’ve got the first, third, forth, seventh ect but don’t recall them ever having a fifth doctors Tardis is this correct?

    • booboo

      August 6th, 2019 - 9:06pm

      yes that right, there were a few prototypes floating around on ebay some years back but this is the first proper release

    • Dalek Fred

      August 6th, 2019 - 11:46pm

      Thank you booboo

    The figures don’t even look right at all. Only the YARD IS is from the same mould.I won’t be buying these

    • booboo

      August 4th, 2019 - 8:32pm

      fine don’t.

    • Danny

      August 4th, 2019 - 8:44pm

      For £20.00 this is still an absolute bargain! Also the paint apps on this figure have only ever appeared in one other set (minus the dirt detailing) so many will be very happy to own this.

    • Bobby Davros

      August 5th, 2019 - 4:10pm

      Yes the YARDIS looks awful (damn gangster time machine). The TARDIS however looks absolutely wonderful.

      August 10th, 2019 - 10:22am

      Ooh they look fab nothing wrong with them

    Not sure if allowed to share a YouTube review link but the guy is very thorough and compares figure and Tardis with older variations.

    I already have 7th Doctor Tardis and 6th Doctor Regeneration figure so won’t be getting this one. I have no room for it either.

  • confused

    August 1st, 2019 - 8:47pm

    is there an exact date

    • booboo

      August 1st, 2019 - 8:51pm


  • James17

    August 1st, 2019 - 7:45pm

    Anymore news on release as The Host Productions on YouTube has already reviewed it…

    • booboo

      August 1st, 2019 - 7:51pm

      review samples are sent out ahead of the main stock which has not arrived yet, it will be on the front page as soon as it does and is started to be sent out to stores.

    • prototype dalek

      August 1st, 2019 - 8:08pm

      Is this a sign that the main stock isn’t far behind with the sample stock being sent out now?

    • booboo

      August 1st, 2019 - 8:16pm

      as far as i know Tardis sets are very close with the sets to follow later (this month) its down to b&M how and when they ares net out either as they arrive or all together, either way we will know when the time is right

    • prototype dalek

      August 1st, 2019 - 8:20pm

      Just the waiting game now. Though I assume they’ll want to do it before the end of August whilst it’s still school holidays for everyone, something I assume B&M have taken in to account.

    • booboo

      August 1st, 2019 - 8:22pm

      I’m sure they will be in the shops by the end of August

    • prototype dalek

      August 1st, 2019 - 8:27pm

      I’ll certainly be keeping an eye on this site for the announcement.

      Right I’ll leave you to it booboo as you’ve probably been quite busy over the last few days since the big reveal.

    • The 14th doctor

      August 1st, 2019 - 8:51pm

      I have just been correcting everyone on that video as some one said that they rang b&m and they said it is out tomorrow.

    • booboo

      August 1st, 2019 - 8:56pm

      i know why they are saying that, the “arrival” date defaults to the next day until they actually arrive, it could of course be tomorrow but will then it will takes some time to get around.

      Its been arriving “tomorrow” for days now.

  • James17

    July 31st, 2019 - 5:46pm

    Is there any info on when the sets will appear on the B&M website because if some shops are releasing early I cant get the product info from their website to ask…

    • booboo

      July 31st, 2019 - 5:52pm

      assuming they put them on their website the Tardis sets never went on

      The other sets were out for some time before they put them on their site

      as soon as stock arrives and is starting to get sent out we will give you all the info you need.just keep an eye on the front page for the “stocks arrive” post

  • dazzleshell

    July 31st, 2019 - 12:13pm

    I can see us getting the pink ‘Happiness Patrol’ Tardis in the future. An easy but striking variant which would be easy to do.

    • booboo

      July 31st, 2019 - 12:44pm

      its been mentioned as in idea, with some proceeds going to charity

    • dazzleshell

      July 31st, 2019 - 1:03pm

      Sounds good.

    • Skonnos

      July 31st, 2019 - 2:53pm

      What about a white TARDIS from The Mind Robber? A clear no brainer methinks

    • Acefan2005

      July 31st, 2019 - 3:42pm

      Or a black one from the B&W TARDIS arc

  • David

    July 31st, 2019 - 10:32am

    Could someone with more knoweldge than me explain the differences between this TARDIS and the 7th Doctors plz 🙂

    I can see they are different but not sure exactly how, and I thought the 5/6/7 Doctors all used the same box? I might be wrong though ahah

    • Steven taylor

      July 31st, 2019 - 11:56am

      The box is the same but the base is a new thinner piece

    • Wholords2

      July 31st, 2019 - 12:02pm

      New base different colour scheme and more accurate signs

    • Bobby Davros

      July 31st, 2019 - 2:37pm

      And this one is filthy.

    • Colin Forever

      July 31st, 2019 - 3:00pm

      Well the paint job is darker than the seventh doctor version. Also the base is muddy from being on Androzani Minor

  • patchampyoutuber

    July 31st, 2019 - 10:01am

    Finally we got a budget version of the Tardis with the stacked roof! I’m over the moon about that!

  • DoctorOsgoodTARDIS

    July 31st, 2019 - 9:55am

    Is this the same paintjob we saw from that 5th doctor tardis image a few years back? just dirtied up a little?

    • BrunoB

      July 31st, 2019 - 10:07pm

      No, it’s different. The unrelesed version isn’t as dirty, it is darker in colour and the signs are different. plus, it doesn’t have the same base.

  • Marcus

    July 31st, 2019 - 9:45am

      I just hope that doesn’t mean an increase on ££££

    • booboo

      July 30th, 2019 - 7:35pm

      as far as i know all of these sets are £19.99 now

    • Anonymous

      July 31st, 2019 - 8:03am

      Booboo, when you say “all of these sets”, which ones do you mean? Doctor/dalek and doctor/TARDIS sets or just doctor/TARDIS sets? And do you think that the 3-packs will be around £16.99 as per usual?

    • booboo

      July 31st, 2019 - 8:21am

      i think they are all £19.99 but will try to get confirmation, even a couple of new head sculpts don’t come cheap!

    • prototype dalek

      July 31st, 2019 - 8:32am

      So about £160 if you wanted to buy all the releases then.

  • Daz

    July 30th, 2019 - 6:12pm

    This is a nice repaint of what looks like the prevous first Doctor Tardis.
    I love my 7th Doctor Tardis (my favorite version) so that gets shared between 5,6 and 7 so I want this so I have a defenate 5th Doctor tardis! I just hope it’s as easy to find as the last one was for me.
    I hope the dirt of Peters jacket looks a bit better in the finished product tho.

      July 31st, 2019 - 8:12pm

      My only problem with this is now i,ve had chance to look properly after rushing in with comments is the headsculpt. There have been better ‘character options’ likenesses of peter davison. This looks like the inferior one they included in the 12 doctors pack and kinda spoilt that collection.They could better realise 5ths head in future and include the 6th in same androzani mudburst regeneration outfit. If I can get one it will mainly be for the TARDIS.

      Quite right! I am in love with the Shada version as well, the windows base and lamp really turn it from a reused sculpt to a brand new variant! And plus that Tom is a variant we’ve been wanting for a while!
