Dotor Who Twelfth Doctor 8″ Figure (Cancelled)

Doctor Who Twelfth Doctor 8-Inch Action Figure

This item in now cancelled

The wait is over! The Twelfth Doctor has been revealed and Bif Bang Pow! is proud to introduce the Twelfth Doctor in an 8-inch scale EMCE action figure! Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor stands about 8-inches tall and features real fabric clothing, accessories, and multiple points of articulation. Ages 14 and up.

Produced by the BBC, Doctor Who is the longest-running sci-fi TV series in the world. The award-winning show presents the adventures of a time traveler known simply as “the Doctor.” Along with his companions, this mysterious Time Lord journeys through time and space using his TARDIS, which appears from the outside to be an ordinary police phone booth.

The Twelfth Doctor!

by Bethany Grenald

I was really excited to hear that Peter Capaldi has been chosen to be the 12th incarnation of Doctor Who! Of course, for us, the announcement immediately threw us into high gear! We are licensed to make Doctor Who action figures, and we want to be sure that fans can get their hands on their 12th Doctor action figures as soon as possible!

So what does this mean? As soon as we heard the announcement, we began making the sculpt for the action figure’s head. It takes a long time to create a sculpt that meets our standards. We also need to get it approved by the BBC and the actor himself.

Once we get a sculpt approved, we’ve got to wait…

    Why on earth did BBC America take away biff bag pow’s licence for doctor who ???

    Hey – I’m new here, obviously. Does anyone known if the 5″ line is officially cancelled for sure? Will there be all new 5″ figures?

      We assume it’s not completely cancelled.

    I wish they would hurry up & release the other 15 they have shown, instead of giving imaginary Pre-Order dates for a 12th. Doctor figure for 2014!

    Booboo do you think you could do a poll to see what percentage of people would buy 5″ new series figures again. I’m just really interested!

      there isn’t any point because i know what the result would be, but a few 1000 core collectors aren’t enough to keep the line going

      but not all of them are collecters like me i buy them to play with them

    I can’t wait to find out what his costume is like for this and just in general. I’m sure Howard Burden will help make it look amazing; he did with Matt’s 7b costume!

      i honestly LOVED david tennant suit

    • MasterKasterborous

      Which one, or both?

  • toptimelord

    August 30th, 2013 - 6:23pm

    I wonder when we’ll see a release date for the Tenth Doctor, new Eleventh Doctor and mystery Doctor (John Hurt) from Biff Bang Pow? They did confirm they would release these figures in the same format.

    really ages away though

      Well it would need to be, nobody knows what his costume will be like (even Peter Capaldi doesn’t know yet) so they are going to have to wait for that decision to be made before they can finish it.

      yh true, didnt think of that !

      Also..his hair…they may have to change that sculpt completely….he may have a beard….glasses…

      Nothing like riding a wave of euphoria to make a quick buck…the whole thing is utter silliness…why would anyone order a product without seeing it first? Those pictures they have included may aswell be of the queen for what use they are.

    I so hope they resume the 5 inch figures, as the the 3.75 figures aren’t detailed at all and they don’t fit with our other figures.

  • Trenzalore1502

    August 20th, 2013 - 12:17am

    As much as I do like the 3.75″ figures I really hope that other companies are going to make new figures like the Capaldi one here but just in 5″. It would just be so much better!

  • Tim

    August 19th, 2013 - 7:15pm

    Where’s the goatee?

    • Trenzalore

      August 19th, 2013 - 7:23pm

      Let’s just say it involves a shaving razor 😆 I don’t think he has it anymore

    • Sam Bentley

      August 27th, 2013 - 10:55am

      He looked like the Master with his goatee – VERY Master-ish. I hope he doesn’t have it in the show.

    • Thebritishcupoftea

      August 30th, 2013 - 4:29pm

      i think he looked like Peter Cushing with the goatee

    • Connor

      August 31st, 2013 - 4:08am

      i want him to haave the goatee and for his costume a Sherlock omes jumper and a vest with no tie or bow tie and for his shoes i wouuld want him to have boots and it would be cool if he had a belt to hold his sonic! and the colour of his suit a dark blue! whats you guys thoughts on my choices?

  • TheBritishCupOfTea

    they need to make a new 12 Doctor 5″ set with a NEW variant for each Doctor, including the 12th Doctor…maybe even a John Hurt figure. Smith could be in his purple coat, Tennant in the brown suit which we’ve been waiting for for years now.

    • DoctorWho2013

      August 26th, 2013 - 1:29pm

      They HAVE to make a Hurt Doctor and even more so a 12th Doctor in the 5″ scale…

  • Gavin

    August 19th, 2013 - 12:24pm

    Damn, I do hope they do make a 5″ one.

    This would be out of place among most collections.

    i think that in the 50th special the 10th doctors sonic screwdriver will merge into matt,s one and it will make a hybrid between david,s sonic and matt,s sonic and that will then in the christmas special will be hande over to peter capaldi

    • Joe

      August 19th, 2013 - 9:20am

      Go idea but then they won’t have a screwdriver then

    • Mister

      August 19th, 2013 - 12:10pm

      I think that River Song would have it, because the 10th Doctor’s Sonic lasted until the Eleventh Hour when it was exploded, so how does River Song have one almost identical to it?

    • dalek 105

      August 19th, 2013 - 3:14pm

      hello joe
      davids tardis could make him another one like in smith and jones at the end

    • dalek 105

      August 19th, 2013 - 3:22pm

      hello mister
      i think that the rivers sonic is the doctors sonic in the future like at the end of his life he gives river his sonic

    • dalek 105

      August 19th, 2013 - 3:30pm

      oh and also mister i think that in the 45th doctors last episode (example) the doctors will for some reason find davids sonic on the ground and keep it as his sonic

  • AlexanderOP

    Everyone’s debating about the new Costume, but what about the Sonic Screwdriver? I wonder how they will change it.

    • the astronaut of death

      August 18th, 2013 - 8:18pm

      they might not change it

      but as much as I love the one we have now I think we should get a new one something more dark and mechanical

      and I do not think they should change the tardis we have only had this tardis for a half of a series and I love the one we have

      but if they did make a new screwdriver something more mechanical and dark

    • Matt Smithy

      August 19th, 2013 - 8:15am

      completely agree astronaut, but I think they should wait for the NEXT Doctor like they did with Chris/David, as not every doctor needs a new one. Or at least I think they should change it a series or two in to his run. But yes, dark and mechanical.

    • Trenzalore1502

      August 20th, 2013 - 12:36am

      Only the 8th Doctor had his screwdriver, the same with the 2nd and 3rd

    • thedaleksdeath

      August 21st, 2013 - 2:16pm

      Actually your wrong, Pertwee also had Tom Baker’s Sonic Screwdriver for his last season.

    • Eiger

      August 21st, 2013 - 3:39pm

      The sonic screwdriver is so overused these days. It has become a magic wand that doesn’t even have a feather of a Phoenix in it to add some jazz to an ongoing sub plot. My vote goes for Twelve to have NO screwdriver.

    Great Capaldi sculpt! (As long as he doesn’t have a hair cut or something!)

    • Lauren

      August 20th, 2013 - 4:44am

      We don’t know yet what kind of look he will have! He could shave his head for all we know. I think it’s jumping the gun a bit.

  • PedroPete

    August 18th, 2013 - 4:04pm

    Wow! Is it life size?

    Joke, I know it won’t be!

    • sheepinafez

      August 18th, 2013 - 7:41pm

      yes, peter capaldi is exactly 8 inches tall

    • The Master

      August 19th, 2013 - 11:17pm

      Good one, shhepinafez!
