    Does anyone have any info regarding how many of each set will be made? I noticed there’s a limited edition sticker on all of them so I worry there won’t be many.

    • booboo

      July 31st, 2019 - 10:13pm

      limited edition essentially means a one off run, when they are gone they are gone however there are more of these than the last sets, there shouldn’t be a problem

      He’s the last Sontaran I need, so I would be grateful for any information.

    Awesome! Will use the Sontarans are soldiers with their helmets on as I already have Lynx and Styre. Having said that, doesn’t really matter as they’re clones anyway!

    I think next year we could get a 5, Tegan and Turlough season 21 set.

    Re-release 5

    Tegan: top half of Abby Maitland pink top varient and bottom half of Amy Pond. New head sculpt.

    Turlough: James Lester figure… Or John Simm. master figure.

    Or they could replace the 5th doctor figure with The Ainley master…

      Good shout, though I would expect they’d skip vegan and do a planet of fire set with 5, ainley and turlough

      Is tegan a vegan?

      Are the Vogans vegan?

    • The ergon

      Well if the vogans were tegan they might be vegan.

      They can’t just mix and match parts like that.

      sometime i wish CO would put together a video showing how figures are put together, what the tooling blocks are etc and how they work and use examples of why its just not possible to do what a lot people think they should.

      people would have a lot more understanding then

    Okay, I have to pitch some ideas, just incase Al Dewar is reading/ gives feedback on how plausible these could be…

    – Sarah Jane from ‘The Pyramids of Mars,’ using the Gelth Zombie as a base, painted an array of white/cream tones (not exact, but would communicate the idea) and a new head sculp, or even just hair sculpt, if you could get away with the head from an SJA figure ‘softened’ with paint apps…

    -Romana II from ‘Destiny of the Daleks,’ using Martha Jones Legs and Torso piece, without jacket, instead with 13th Doctors Coat (the hood is innaccurate, but oh well) with Marthas/13’s arms and hands. This would require two new sculpts, Romanas head and some sort of covering for the front of the torso piece (the scarf would be a lovely addition, but I feel many would forgive its lack of inclusion…)

    Maybe I’m just getting over-exited, but I really can’t wait to see what the future of the B and M line has in store…

    • Adam

      July 31st, 2019 - 11:43am

      I love how the community is so involved with projects now, as it’s clear what Al Dewar and character can really do if the demand is there 🙂

    • booboo

      July 31st, 2019 - 11:46am

      very true

      lets not forget B&M as well, there would be nothing without their commitment.

    • prototype dalek

      July 31st, 2019 - 12:07pm

      Surprised really with B&M as I didn’t see this kind of commitment coming, I know we had the collapse of Toys R Us UK and the closure of the UK BBC Shop and Shut down of the Forbidden Planet International (.co.uk) online shop in recent time so good to see this kind of investment and cooperation, especially with Big Finish coming in with a few sets for the first time ever.

    • James17

      July 31st, 2019 - 12:38pm

      The addition of the scarf on romana could attempt to cover up 13s hood.

      As this year we’ve gained two new headsculpts, being harry and stike, I hope in future years we carry on seeing 2 or 3 new headsculpts per year.

      For example, a UNIT set would be amazing. The brigadier could be a rerelease with no additions
      Benton could be the classic repaint of captain Jack, maybe with a slight tweak to the headsculpt for a beret
      Yates would have the brigadier uniform body and then a new headsculpt.
      I would totally buy that.

      But personally my money is on Jamie next year as everyone and their mums seem to have commented at the lack of a Jamie figure in the three doctors set.

      If Al and CO keep going down this route, in a few years time we might even have every doctors main companions, and I really hope that we get a Susan, Steven, Jamie, Sarah, Tegan and Turlough. And more…

    At last my Team TARDIS will be complete! Can’t wait for Harry to hang with Four and Sarah Jane again.

    Not wanting to pick holes as really happy with the sets, but shouldn’t Styre’s helmet be black?

    • john

      July 31st, 2019 - 11:33am

      Yes it meant to be

    • The Outcast

      July 31st, 2019 - 12:58pm

      Actually, it’s more of a Gun-Metal grey, which looks a pretty dark grey, but is still shiny. I think that’s what they were trying to recreate here.

    • Jon

      July 31st, 2019 - 2:21pm

      To my eyes the original release that came with the Sontaran ship looked far more accurate to the on-screen version. Anyway, there we go. I’m not going to moan as great to have this selection 🙂

  • The Werewolf

    July 30th, 2019 - 9:09pm

    This one is especially a must-have, not just for the Harry which is obviously the star of the set, but I’ve never been able to get any classic Sontarans either, so this is a win, win situation.

  • Anthony

    July 30th, 2019 - 8:36pm

    All these sets look pretty special. You can never have too many Cybermen and Daleks. Harry is a gem! I will be buying every set…. In the future I hope for more Dalek sets… Twin pack Dalek sets from each Classic Dalek story would be heaven on earth.

  • Destroyer of Worlds

    July 30th, 2019 - 8:07pm

    Booboo, do you think they might do something again like this next year where they make a new head for a new companion but use an already existing bodyas they could do that for several characters like Jamie, Sarah Jane, Susan, Ian, Barbara, etc.?

    • booboo

      July 30th, 2019 - 8:13pm

      i think you can count on it

    • Shane Cook

      July 31st, 2019 - 3:30am

      They can do more Harry’s now. Just need a suited figure, no tie and painted for most of Season 12. Any naval uniforms in 5 inch scale for his first look?

    • Anonymous

      July 31st, 2019 - 11:29am

      Character Options had a range of Army Navy RAF figures didn’t they? They could re-purpose some of the moulds and use them for UNIT and harry in uniform. Can’t remember the scale they were in though.

    • The Outcast

      July 31st, 2019 - 1:24pm

      The ANR figures were much bigger than the 5.5 stuff, they were more doll like, like that 10 inch 13 figure.

      Anyway, on the subject of new figures that can be made with new heads, we could get a Turlough (new head on James Lester body). And if they can do heads, I’m wondering whether and an Attack Cyberman is possible.

      With new heads, I also wonder if we could see some EU characters get figures. Evelyn Smythe could be achieved by a new head on a repainted Grandma Connolly body, a Hex could be made with a new head on Rory’s body, and a Cinder could be made from a Last of the Timelords Martha with a new head. We could even get an Alex Macqueen Master! Obviously these are unlikely, as there are people who aren’t really interested in these characters, but I’d be willing to buy them.

      I am loving the Harry head Sculpt (what body was used). If this is the way forward, I’m all for it.

      Personally, I’d love a new 2nd Dr head sculpt (smiley please) with a Jamie (not sure what bodies can be used here apart from a Jo Grant! There will have to some sandpaper used in the chest department 😉

    HARRY! At last! Adorable, I’m in love with this. Even though I’m not a collector of figures, beautiful though they are … this may well be a must buy!

  • Mrs Croot

    July 30th, 2019 - 7:42pm

    Would of been nice to swap Linx for a Sarah-Jane figure and make it “The Sontaran Experiment” Collector’s Set! Wish Link was much darker too.

    My Collection really needs Jamie, Sarah, Victoria, Zoey & Wheel in Space Cyberman. But Harry is cool. Already have 3 sontarans so I’ll be looking for Harry on EBAY.

    • Mrs Croot

      Best not, I’d say get the set, then sell the Sontarans. It would be sad if you missed Harry!

    I was going to try and resist myself from buying these sets this year because it is a lot of stress trying to get these but then they have to reveal a Harry figure…

    • Destroyer of Worlds

      July 30th, 2019 - 7:07pm

      I was thinking the same thing but now I definitely have to get this for Harry.

  • Daz

    July 30th, 2019 - 6:27pm

    Well I never expected Harry!
    Nice getting two Sontarans so you can make the battles better (er I mean the display better).
    It would be lovely to get a 4th Doctor era Sarah Jane Smith figure later on, maybe more than one version in her most famous outfits from the time that would be nice…oh and Zoe Heriot in that spangaly silver 60’s outfit!!!!…go on pleaseeee!

  • Frumious Bandersnatch

    July 30th, 2019 - 6:23pm

    Have to confess that while not generally impressed with the companions they’ve really caught Harry’s likeness there. Would actually be good to stand him with the Big and fourth Doctor in his red jacket. Shame they didnt go mad and really make my day by putting Styre’s robot into the set.

      4th doctor, City of death torso and the jacket/arms are from the Genesis figure

      I think there will be as big a ratio of middle aged fans scouring those stores looking for these mostly using the excuse that their kids have been desperately wanting these.

    Two Drs set (shame no 6th Dr androgum, maybe next time.
