      Been wanting this set for so long to be released but i do worry about the paintwork on these three and four packs. I just hope and pray the one i recieve is of good quality, been burnt so many times in the past with the multiples.

    If ordering from Forbidden Planet, do they deliver by DPD or by royal Mail?

      The orders I have placed recently came via DPD. They do use Royal Mail too but I think it depends on the value on your order. If you wait until this is made available on Eaglessmoss site they always use DPD which is free on orders over £50.00 and they have great service and I have used them to back fill some of the figurines from the main range…

    So what happens when we get all doctor’s companion, do we just start to repeat or does it stop?

      There are enough possibilities yet to keep us going for at least three or four more years without repeating, so anita early to worry what will happen then. But I would like at least some repeats if companions in various outfits.

    After receiving the 3rd Dr companions set today, im even more excited for this 5th Dr set. The paint apps on the 3rd Dr set are some of the best yet i think. They look wonderful!

      Stuart10 – is that definite news you know for a fact is happening? Or a shout-out for what you would like them to do? Either makes a good post, but without an ‘I’d like’ or ‘…, please Eaglemoss’ it might cause some confusion where people will half-hear it on the grapevine and think it ‘has been announced’ as happening. [100% not having a pop at you by the way]

    I must admit I’m a little disappointed with this one. Obviously I’ll still get it because of Adric, Nyssa, and Tegan but I will forever be frustrated that they decided to make the Fifth Doctor the only Doctor not to wear his own outfit in the companion sets, especially seeing as Neil has said Five is one of his favourite Doctors.

    He mentioned on here and Facebook that it was a decision about how similar Davison’s outfit was during his tenure but both First Doctor figurines and Ninth Doctor figurines are basically the exact same outfit just with a different pose and a hat or sonic screwdriver added. The Sixth Doctor and Eleventh Doctor figurines are also similar as well either pose/sculpt wise or outfit wise. I’m hoping we will eventually have a season 19 Fifth Doctor with his hat on and a season 21 Fifth Doctor with his different jumper and possibly holding his hat to his chest (as seen in the promo pics for “Resurrection of the Daleks.”) There’s also the option of having a Five in cricket gear, Black Orchid Five, and a Five in his vest and braces as seen in “Planet of Fire.”

    I’m just a little disappointed that they chose this option of Five in Four’s outfit instead of another actual Fifth Doctor figurine.

      It’s clear that you’ve spent time thinking about this, so I wanted to reply.

      I’d like you to have another think about why we did this set the way we did. But you’ve got to do this for hours.

      Then, with a couple of mates, who’ve also been thinking about the same thing, you meet to discuss and debate every pro and every con you can think of until, after a few hours, you’ve worked out what you want to do and why.

      And that’s just the start. We’re an age away from starting to make them.

      I’m sorry you’re disappointed in the Fifth Doctor figurine, but it is still the Fifth Doctor, no matter whose outfit he’s in.

    • the ergon

      January 29th, 2021 - 9:49am

      It was more about getting those companions in a set. The doctor figurines the bonus, no matter what outfit he has on.

    • Gareth Pugh

      January 29th, 2021 - 11:22am

      I do like the sculpt on this ‘post-regent’ Fifth Doctor though. One I would be very interested in seeing is McCoy in Colin Baker’s outfit – not as-yet done in the action figure line from CO and in a funny way, it looked quite cool on him. (His own costume was better, question mark jumper aside, though)

    • Coleman

      January 29th, 2021 - 5:54pm

      Speaking of Eaglemoss 5th Doctor variants, I’d definitely like to see him in his Harlequin outfit before the collection ends.

  • Jordan9364

    January 27th, 2021 - 6:39pm

    Just had a thought, what about a “Name of the Doctor” companion set?

    With 11th Doctor (series 7b outfit), Clara in the checkered dress (probably her best costume), Strax in his tuxedo, jenny and vastra.

    The only issue would be Vastra as she’s already been released in another costume, and makes it a 5 figurine set. So maybe just leave her out, but that would seem weird…

    Other than that it seems like a no-brainer in getting much wanted characters and variants out there!

      Wonder if we’ll get a second round for each doctor?
      1, vicki and Steven
      2 and Victoria (2 as salamander)
      3 and Liz
      4 and Leela
      5, turlough and kamelion (a planet of fire set like Neil has suggested on this page)
      Unless we get more bug finish sets, I doubt we’ll get more 6th, 7th, 8th or War sets, if mel and peri do get released together in a season 23 companion set
      9, Rose, Mickey and Jackie (either Rose or Parting of the Ways)
      10, Donna, Martha and Wilf (Poison Sky – could do doctor’s daughter variants but call it a poison Sky set so we can include wilf, as they do appear in those costumes at the end of the episode)
      11 and Rory (Let’s Kill Hitler or Girl Who Waited for a green coat 11th doctor)
      12, Clara and Nardole (Twice Upon a Time)
      13 and Dan (whichever episode from series 13 suits best)

      Potential 3rd wave:
      1st doctor, Dodo, Ben and Polly (War Machines)
      2nd doctor and Zoe
      3rd doctor and Yates
      4th doctor and Harry

      Obviously they may be more spread out than I suggested I.e. multiple 10th doctor sets, could have a tux 10 with Lazarus experiment Martha, then 10, Donna and Wilf from The Stolen Earth etc.

    I like this set, but I am disappointed they went with Davison in Baker’s outfit. I do not like having Doctors in their predecessor’s outfits and hoped if Eaglemoss did some it would be in a Regenerations set I could skip. I suppose I could try to hide this thing behind the others…

      The long-standing “from the same story” rule (which we know has been broken) made this the companion set to do. I would have had Tegan in s21, Nyssa is20, Adric from S19 and Peter from Planet of Fire

      The Doctor is the most difficult case because his costumes show little variation. And neither Tegan and Nyssa look exactly like this from episode 2 of Castrovalva 🙂

      But it’s a big moment for the series, and the costumes are iconic.

      We do think about all this very long and hard.

    • daz

      Neil. Will there still be another variant of 5, 7 and 8 in the main collection? Like Doctors 1 to 4 and 6? Or is this now only possible in the companion sets?

      Will we get any news on Rare Dalek 17 before release too?

      Thanks.

      January 23rd, 2021 - 12:35pm

      You can mix up the Doctors and companions how you see fit. They don,t have to conform to one type of story. For example you could just so easily do Sarah Jane, Leela, Peri and Mel in one set as long as you have which story they are taken from on the back of the box pretty much like how character do these things.

    • Bobby Davros

      January 23rd, 2021 - 2:10pm

      You could have got around this problem by making it a Visitation set. That way we could have had Davison at last in his hat and Nyssa in her preferable slacks outfit consistent with the cover of this set.

      January 23rd, 2021 - 8:02pm

      Well they can cover Fifth in seasons 19, 20 and 21 easily enough to allow for more companion sets from his Era. Theres the hat, the cricket gear, the harlequin outfit, the braces and specs, as omega ,in base outfit from Warriors, in dodgy holiday shirt from Planet of fire and muddied from caves. Take your pick.

      A black orchid set would be appealing with the characters in their masked ball outfits alongside 5th as Harlequin or the masked Harlequin figurine as a double with George Cranleigh. So many possibilities.

    • Neil Corry

      January 28th, 2021 - 2:56pm

      Daz: only just seen your question.

      When we got the go-ahead for the first companion set in 2017, there was no certainty how successful they would be, so variant Doctor figurines continued to be planned with the regular issues.

      I’m now working on Sets 16 and 17. As they were successful, it just made more sense to keep Doctor variants with them.

      News on RD17 may well be imminent but it’s not my decision as to what’s announced and when. Hope that’s all okay.

      I’m hoping Companion Set 12 will turn up soon, and I thank everyone for their continued patience in these strange times.

      They have to keep coming up with more interesting and varied poses. At least Adric and Tegan have only one hand on the hip. What else do you think they could do? 5th clutching his lapels about to do his Hartnell impersonation or pulling away at his scarf?

      Its studio bound so theres not much room for scenery and actors to move around. Optera aside i enjoy and appreciate this more now. I treat these early episodes like i,m watching a stage play of the time. The way the menoptera move and speak and the sometimes tinted/blurry shots make it look dreamlike and gives it a look like one of those old japanese style movies or plays from the 1940s and 1950s.
      There are some great laugh out loud moments. Zarbi running into each other and the camera, the over enthusiastic battle scenes, The zarbi being controlled with the doctors hand gestures, the doctor referring to the control to bring the ‘hairdryer’ down and the embarrassing jumping grubs to name but a few. Its static in places but there is plenty to enjoy.Even if for all the wrong reasons.

      I wonder if they’ve ever thought about a crowd funding option. I know Hasbro do it to be able to produce things like Jabbss Sail Barge in 3.75” scale and it could be a good option. Put up say Jamie, the 2013/now Cyberman design and some other popular characters and if a certain number of people order in advance then it gets made.

      Sam – I forget the details now but some have posted (here and on other forums) saying that most licences the BBC issue for Doctor Who merch rule out crowdfunding – IIRC it’s something to do with their publicly funded model (licence fee), whereas being a private company Hasbro (and Disney) are not so restricted with Star Wars stuff. Don’t know how true that is but what I’ve read somewhere.

    7 in 6s clothes with mel
    10 in 9s clothes with (series 1) rose

      Since they announced the revolution of the daleks set that features Jack (a companion who already has a figurine) i didn’t know whether that meant other companions would get the same treatment, I’d kinda prefer a Rose figurine from when she travelled with the doctor instead of her series 4 appearance,

      It would perhaps be easier if it was it’s own short lived regeneration range like the time lord range:
      6th doctor and 11th in set 1
      7th doctor and 10th doctor in set 2
      13th doctor and war doctor in set 3
      3rd doctor and 12th doctor in set 4
      4th doctor and 8th doctor in set 5

      Same, my only concern is that we’ve already had a 9th doctor figurine from that story in a companion set with Jack, so would they do it again so we can have an Empty Child Rose? If not, a father’s day 9 and Rose would be cool variants or an army of ghosts set of 10, Rose, Mickey and Jackie

      There are some proper excellent ideas there. I’m not sure how much beyond the companion/story sets, though. There are lots of fans who like variants and those who aren’t so keen. I’ll try to investigate. Don’t expect an immediate answer.

      No, I mean carry on with the Original Single Releases and the Companion sets with Doctor and companions in different attire but run separate variant sets occasionally with enemies like the ones i mentioned for Example You could have a red eyed Robot with corpse marker and an outreaching robot with injected head as a two pack. Similarly you could do a chained Angel and a byzantium Maze Angel, Rabid ood/ Ood Elder.You get my drift.
