Doctor Who B&M Exclusive 2019 Sontarans Figure Set

    I said shows on their systems, not stock. Just hope people get an answer soon.

    I spoke to a manager of b and m he said it’s coming any day but all stock will be stagerd over four weeks.

      My b&m said that they should be coming any day too when I asked someone there.

      They said to try come in as much as I can over the next two weeks as that’s about the time when they’ll most likely be on the shelf.

      as far as i know everything is working towards this weekend although 2 sets have yet to arrive.

      I’m also seeing some wrong info on quantities being banded about.

  • Lynx not Linx

    August 15th, 2019 - 10:52pm

    why does the box contents thing say Linx instead of Lynx

    • The Flying Shark

      August 16th, 2019 - 7:50am

      Because that’s the correct spelling.

    • Alvin

      August 16th, 2019 - 7:50am

      Linx is the correct spelling, perhaps your confusing the spelling with the american wildcat Lynx

    • booboo

      August 16th, 2019 - 8:02am

      the press release got it wrong the box is correct

    A tweet I got from someone who spoke to a store is saying October. I rang the Gorton store and all they could tell me was all the action figures were gone from the shelves….I said you didn’t ask which ones I was after, she just repeated what she had already said. Not helpful.

    • booboo

      August 15th, 2019 - 3:26pm

      they are probably getting fed of being asked, and we can’t assume staff are going to be, nor should they expected to be that knowledgeable on these sets.

      B&M aren’t talking they could easily clarify the situation if they wanted to.

      As far as i know none of the Big Finish sets or 3 figure sets are actually at the central warehouse yet.

    • prototype dalek

      August 15th, 2019 - 3:39pm

      So all we have is the 2 TARDIS set’s that have made it to the central warehouses, no knowledge of the other sets and B&M not clarifying any release dates or anything to do with them actually.

    • booboo

      August 15th, 2019 - 3:46pm

      that’s about it

    • prototype dalek

      August 15th, 2019 - 4:23pm

      Disappointed I was correct

    • Ian

      August 16th, 2019 - 9:16am

      I scanned the barcodes on the boxes, eighth Doctor and Dalek shares the same code as the War Doctor set. Fourth and Fifth Doctors Tardis is the same as the fourth Doctors Tardis earlier this year. All showing on their system.
      As for getting fed up being asked, I could see that, but I didn’t even mention the words Doctor Who haha.

    • booboo

      August 16th, 2019 - 9:26am

      what shows in the system sometimes doesn’t always translate to stock availability , from past experience eg due dates default to the next day and so on until they arrive

      I have seen comment after comment about supposed stock arrivals all of which have turned out to be wrong.

      Not all of the stock is in the warehouse and the last communication with B&M was that it would all be launched together towards the end of the month

    • prototype dalek

      August 16th, 2019 - 10:20am

      As there has been no word on the doctor and dalek sets at all, I doubt it’ll be the original August release date they will come out

    • booboo

      August 16th, 2019 - 10:23am

      things have changed on that front today, but some stuff still to come.

    • prototype dalek

      August 16th, 2019 - 11:09am

      Going on all the confirmed information out there, what’s your prediction in when they will come booboo?

    • booboo

      August 16th, 2019 - 11:11am

      25th / 26th August

    • prototype dalek

      August 16th, 2019 - 11:14am

      Hope that will be the case.

      Do they plan to release the sonic screw drivers along side them at the same time?

    • booboo

      August 16th, 2019 - 11:26am

      I’m not getting much info on those there are no samples but they are in the new style guide so another one for completests

    • prototype dalek

      August 16th, 2019 - 11:30am

      I’ll certainly be checking this site daily, hopefully we’ll either see a date confirmed or some photos of stock in the shop from someone.

    Personally would like an under the lake Clara with a new headsculpt on the oswin body, inaccurate dress shape, but close enough…

    August 8th, 2019 - 1:56pm

    I already gave lynx, they should have used a normal invasion of time trooper

    • The Werewolf

      August 11th, 2019 - 10:37pm

      You may already have Linx, but not everyone does, I haven’t been able to get any Classic Sontarans before fpr instance

  • Jamie D

    August 7th, 2019 - 8:08pm

    Suddenly just realised I don’t actually have Linx despite spending literally years thinking I did! I’m looking forward to this set even more now haha.

    While I was reviewing the Nemesis set, one thing I find strange with the seventh Doctor is unlike earlier releases they have just painted the handkerchief which sticks out of his pocket plain red without the paisley type pattern on it.

  • Dominic

    August 6th, 2019 - 9:31am

    Do you think new b&m stores might have them in because apparently new stock in the ware house gets shipped before the stores open

    • booboo

      August 6th, 2019 - 9:44am

      the sets haven’t arrived yet

  • guy

    how mans guns and rods are there in the set Booboo?

    how many guns are there?

      Two, clearly.

  • Bobby Davros

    August 5th, 2019 - 8:09am

    For anyone interested, Retroblasting YouTube channel just interviewed Janet Fielding and she said she has never been approached about approving an action figure.

  • Mrs Davros

    August 4th, 2019 - 4:27pm

    I’m sure this ‘Sontaran’ and ‘Harry’ figure release will be the most sought after and most difficult to find. I expect these sets to end up on ebay and cost a small fortune. The trouble is I usually rely on ebay. As I don’t drive and live miles away from my nearest B&M. I live closer to B&Q!

    • booboo

      August 4th, 2019 - 4:43pm

      there are far more sets of harry than any other they have ever had, the ebay bubble will burst quick quickly

    • prototype dalek

      August 7th, 2019 - 9:07am

      Most likely because B&M will have to make there money back on the new sculpt so will be the most produced, meaning the it’ll be the most produced and popular at the same time.

    • booboo

      August 7th, 2019 - 9:11am

      yes, this time the sets are all separate (ie not packed together with all the same quantities).

    • prototype dalek

      August 7th, 2019 - 9:29am

      So literally getting each set by the box load.

      I know the TARDIS set’s always come in boxes of 6.

    • booboo

      August 7th, 2019 - 9:35am

      yeas and they (the 3 figure sets) all have different codes

    • prototype dalek

      August 7th, 2019 - 9:44am

      Seems this lot of figures is going to be the most organised and produced to date.

    • booboo

      August 7th, 2019 - 9:48am

      i think so yes

    • prototype dalek

      August 7th, 2019 - 9:56am

      How many set’s are there normally per box, wasn’t it 12 or something?

    • booboo

      August 7th, 2019 - 10:18am

      yes 4 of each i think i the past but all separate this time

    • prototype dalek

      August 7th, 2019 - 10:23am

      So each allocated store now will be getting at least 12 of each 3 figure set and 6 Tardis Set’s and probably a reasonable amount of Doctor and Dalek Set’s. Should be enough stock to satisfy all, just show’s the amount of these set’s being produced

    • booboo

      August 7th, 2019 - 10:25am

      unless the pack quantities are less this time

    • prototype dalek

      August 7th, 2019 - 10:29am

      Considering there will be more stock produced and probably take time to create new fitting boxes if they were to send less out, it’ll probably be more likely they will stick with what they have. Just have to wait and see when the stock arrives I suppose to see what they have decided with everything.

    really if all goes good for this wave financialy then a Jamie for 2nd doc would be good next year and 1st doctor tardis as have the rest but that to much money.

  • Alexander Ioan

    August 2nd, 2019 - 11:27pm

    I Do hope they do more classic companions like my favourite Companion Rommanna, i also hope they do some more variants on the 1st/2nd Doctors Tardis. I know its a pipe dream but a classic tardis console and walls would be amazing !!

    • Anonymous

      August 3rd, 2019 - 2:34am

      I would like a classic Sarah Jane figure, a companion for the first and second doctors and a semi accurate name of the Doctor or under the lake clara

    • patchampyoutuber

      August 3rd, 2019 - 2:47pm

      Romana 2 would be my dream figure in her pink coat from Destiny of the Daleks. Could definately do a repaint of 13th Doctors Body for Romana although the cost issue for character would be the head sculpt

    • Anonymous

      August 3rd, 2019 - 4:27pm

      yeah 1st doctor tardis playset man that would be something special.

    • Bobby Davros

      August 3rd, 2019 - 6:08pm

      The Chance of getting further companions is also always dependant on actor approval and negotiated fee. It may be easier/cheaper to obtain such rights from deceased actors estates I imagine and this may be the only reason this Harry could be released on B and M’s budget. I may be wrong but I think Character had a lot of trouble gaining approval from Elizabeth Sladen and this may be why we have never had a young Sarah figure.

    • patchampyoutuber

      August 4th, 2019 - 12:46pm

      I can see a valid reason as to why they currently cant get approval from Elizabeth Sladen……………..

    • booboo

      August 4th, 2019 - 1:07pm

      its not an issue, both Titans and The figurine collection have been able to get it

    It’s a creative little gift to fans, now if only they had paired it with a Sarah Jane Smith action figure as well as that Cricket looking alien

  • WhovianLife

    August 2nd, 2019 - 12:44am

    Just out of curiosity (this is for ALL sets not just this one) but will there be quite large quantity’s of all of these? As i might not be able to get them on the release date?

    • WhovianLife

      August 2nd, 2019 - 2:35pm

      Booboo do you think that they will have large quantity’s of these?

    • booboo

      yes, some more than others but should be plenty to go round

    Seeing as we have been given these incredible new head sculpts maybe one day we could see a Richard Hurndall first doctor? Or a solemn-headed seventh doctor with a hat?

    • Evie

      August 2nd, 2019 - 6:33pm

      There was a planned Richard Hurndall figure for the 50th Anniversary but it never got released, I hope we’ll see it one day! You can find pictures online

      Why release new head sculpts for characters that we already have?!?! Surely Character should be putting their effort into bringing us new never before seen in figure form action figures through new head sculpts paired with pre-existing bodies, not bowing to fan nit-picks…

      It’s mostly the Fourth Doctor in duffle coat figure from Genesis of the Daleks/The Sontaran Experiment with the shirt piece from the City of Death Fourth Doctor.
