    Got mine today. The windows are painted badly, the door sign isn’t straight and I’m fairly sure it’s not wide enough for the height. Very disappointing.

      It will probably be about a pound cheaper it’s not normally not much with these although it does add up if there’s a fair few of these specials.

      If you’ve opted n for them through your subscription you will get them, if you have not opted in though you can contact them and ask them to change it (or to check if you have opted in).

      Subscribers sometimes get a discount on these specials as well (normally just a pound but every little helps).

      It seems reasonable enough, this would mean it is probably released at the same time as either issue 15 or 16 which matches up with their other collections.

      It is also possible their date is slightly off compared to the actual release date, but it won’t be much (maybe late February at a push with issue 14).

      Just filled out this questionnaire. I really hope we DON’T get a Slitheen special. They were such a poorly produced monster and the farting was too childish. They actually had potential for a story where they hunt in their native form but they’d have to leave behind the gas, the human suits, and almost certainly become completely CGI for me to be happy.

      If you go onto their website, up along the top there’s a link that talks about winning Amazon vouchers if you take it, if you go through that link it takes you to a copy of their questionnaire.

      The ones listed are:

      Slitheen
      The Beast
      Giant Robot
      The TARDIS
      The Face of Boe
      Sarah Jane and K-9

      Given the special issues they have for other ranges some of these will make up the first few specials. Not all of them will definitely come out, but it gives us a rough idea of what the first few could be.

    • HornsOfAzal

      September 13th, 2013 - 3:37pm

      Thanks for the info.

      Hmmmmm wonder why the slitheen has to be a special…..Im probably not over enthused because I think theyre one of the worst aliens ever to appear in doctor who old or new…

      Giant robot nice – but the giant robot produced in pieces by character online is superlative and would be hard to better being probably one of the best things they produced….

      The Slitheen are described as being 8 feet tall in one episode, so they’d be larger than most figures in the collection, which is what the special issues are designed for.

      Their Marvel collection also included far larger figures at a smaller scale to make them more feasible although still larger than the rest of the figures (for instance the subscriber Emperor Dalek or the Beast in their questionnaire) and some twin packs (like that Sarah Jane and K-9 they have there). They’ll no doubt be trying to see what the reaction is for them with these.

    • HornsOfAzal

      September 13th, 2013 - 4:03pm

      If I were chosing ‘the specials’ Id go for something a little more unusual like a model showing the development of a wirrn from grub through human mutation ( i.e. noah turning into one )to imago…or kroll attacking the methane rig or possibly a ‘full drashig’ rather than the half of one produced by co…

      Took the opportunity of doing the questionaire to push for a dr who space craft mag along the line of the splendid star trek on currently on the market – as it happens I also pushed for a gerry anderson collection in the bit where it asked for my favourite tv shows…..

    • Anonymous

      September 13th, 2013 - 4:12pm

      I don’t think that’s quite the route they’d go down, but something similar might happen. They could release a Wirrn and a Noah/Wirrn hybrid as a twin pack, or Kroll as one of their scaled down figures.

      At a rate of one figure every two weeks plus specials that won’t take very long. In their predicted line up it first happens in issue 25 with the 2013 Zygon (although that story hasn’t aired yet so I’d give them a chance with that) then again with issue 29 which has the Gunslinger.

      The problem with that is it would require quite a few figures, but perhaps it is an idea for a premium subscription offer once the Daleks are done.

      Mind you, the TARDIS was one of the ones listed in their questionnaire as being considered for a special so it might not be anything to do with fan demands.

      If their previous collections are anything to go by they’ll probably have already decided exactly what they are releasing, and that will be based on the results of their questionnaire (you can get a copy of this on their website). There’s a good chance they’ll go through some of those before moving onto anything else sadly (although some of their already proposed specials aren’t too bad).
