    Please if we have to be having more doctor’s can we keep them to the companion sets and not the main Range but if you are thinking of adding the shalka doctor could always put him in the time Lord set with Android Master

      If there’s an extension beyond 200 main issues (issues in the main fortnightly collection,) which the majority of people I’ve seen or spoken to seem to want quite a bit, then I’m sure people will be fine with 2 variants of as many doctors as they can reasonably do in the main collection and then one more doctor variant in the companion sets, that’s 3 variants of each doctor total. If they want to do more variants I’d be happy if they put them up as bonus figures on the Eaglemoss/Hero Collector webshop.

    He said the watcher definitely not 180 that does not mean the collection has been extended it means simply he has changed his mind that it could be an earlier issue between 173 and 179

    • Negative_Matter

      December 18th, 2019 - 10:08pm

      He must have said that since he said the watcher was being saved for the last issue (which at the point he said it was 180) he made the comment on this site a few months back.

      December 18th, 2019 - 7:18pm

      What a great list. One is so on the money I’m kinda tempted to tell you what it is.

    • Negative_Matter

      December 18th, 2019 - 7:32pm

      Well now Harrops are making the Gravis and probably the Tractator to go with him the race is on to be first no doubt. (lol)

    • Basil Funkenstein

      December 18th, 2019 - 8:56pm

      What a phenomenally cosmic list. Same as you I am hoping we can go beyond 180/200 issues PURELY because I adore this collection and there is still so much potential. I’d be happy with that list though even if there were things I’d add or shift around or not have on the list. Either way I’m so excited to see what next year brings and hopefully many years more.

    • Doug Who

      December 18th, 2019 - 10:15pm

      Mouthwateringly great list there! I’d be very happy with that little lot.

      While we’re dreaming I’d add,

      A few of the Mission/Masterplan delegates
      Macra (special)
      Alien Ambassador (without helmet)
      Uxarian ‘Primitive’
      Arcturus (possibly a special)
      Vega Nexos
      Krynoid in some form possibly the humanoid version
      Nucleus of the Swarm (in either of its forms)
      The Collector
      Fendahl Core
      Seer Robot
      Shrivenzale (special)
      Cessair of Diplos
      The Shadow
      Lady Adrasta
      Krarg (now Shada is complete in so many forms!)
      Mara (special)
      Terileptil Android

      Stopping there…could go on and on and on!

    • Basil Funkenstein

      December 19th, 2019 - 12:25am

      I’d add an Atlantean Fishperson, God’s of Ragnarok and a series 4 emo Master and a series 10 Master to the list. (There’s a lot more but those are the ones I’d really love to see as figurines.)

    • Anonymous

      December 19th, 2019 - 1:17am

      Doug who- I can’t believe I didn’t put the melkur in the list! I’d love specials like the macra, fendahl and drashig,
      I mean going with your idea of the masterplan delegates, they could dedicate an entire extension to the end of the world or the rings of akhaten!
      Also which form of the macra would you have? Original prop or 2018 animation? And personally I’d love you to go on and on and see what ideas I didn’t think of!

    • Doug Who

      December 19th, 2019 - 1:34am

      Definitely an original Macra although all the ‘spikes’ would be impossible to do! There was quite a nice model of it made in the ‘Mini Terror’ range back in the 90s.

      Drashig and Skarasen specials would be wonderful also – in fact a ‘mega beast’ series would be great to include Kroll and the Silurians’ dinosaur. There was some discussion a while ago about the Drashig and whether to do the full creature or just the head.

      Basil a Fish Person and Gods special would be fantastic!

      Oh and I’d love to see Kronos the Chronovore. Dave Prowes as the Minotaur would be fun too!

  • Neil Corry

    December 18th, 2019 - 4:31pm

    That’s not the right cover to issue 172.

    And 180 is definitely not the Watcher.

      December 18th, 2019 - 5:46pm

      Ah you’ve changed your mind then Neil. Earlier you said The Watcher would be the last figure released. So presumably the series has been extended. The facts don’t seem to certain. Some are saying 200 others are saying it’s not been confirmed.

    • Bobby Davros

      December 18th, 2019 - 5:48pm

      Yeah either they’ve extended or they cant get in touch with whoever’s is administering the Watcher’s estate.

      December 19th, 2019 - 11:46am

      They wouldn’t need any permission from Gibbs or his estate if he’s dead as they wouldn’t be using his likeness. The make up o the character means it isn’t Gibss’ actual face.

      Can we add a Dominator, a Morok and a Drahvin to those three they are major who villains after all. Suprised a Chumbley is taking so long too.

      Neil has obviously changed his mind about the Watcher. Or the series isnt ending at 180.

    This collection just jumps from strength to strength, what a lineup we’ve got to look forward to to start of next year.

    Neil if you’re out there reading this I hope to god there’s an extension in the works/planned. This is the best figurine collection Eaglemoss has ever done and there’s still tons more characters and other things from the show left to do. As I’ve said many yes before I’m grateful for what we’ve got and we are very lucky but I am incredibly fond of this set and would love to see it go on for as long as possible.

  • Doug Who

    Amazing! I’m absolutely delighted to see this confirmed. One of my favourite figurines so far and for me at least confirms this as the best Doctor Who merchandise collection ever! It’s a really lovely sculpt.

    So hoping that this collection will be extended as there’s so many monsters and characters I’d love to see given the Eaglemoss treatment. I think the Solonian Mutant and Krarg now move up to my most wanted figures although I agree the Celestial Toymaker would be fantastic too!

    Huge thanks to Neil and everyone else at Eaglemoss and seasons greetings to you all!
