    Why does the Doctor have brown spots? I refrained from getting a set in FP due to poor quality.

    I am a completionist and I think it is getting a bit silly now with black and white figures.it has been made impossible now with things like black and white sets coming out. A bit more warning maybe but a lot of collectors do not have spare money to chuck about which in my opinion is making it difficult for a lot of collectors when it is £40 a time.one or two figure sets maybe but 40 is out of the question for a lot of people.i think this is a case of let’s get as much as we can off them…and they know this so there is no sensibility from them to us subscribers. Those who bought the original set could have been offered a fair discount on this set if they really wanted to help and not just be money money money.Hell why not do it properly and all first and second doctor figurines come out AGAIN but black and white.

      That’s a bit extreme in my opinion. I used to be a completionist with this collection but its financially impossible now. That’s without slight variants of £40 and £20 pieces. I still love the main collection but I’m just lost with all the specials

    I’ve sent three emails to customer services and had no response concerning my damaged set (Susan had broken at the ankles).

    Afraid to say this is really very poor service. What numbers have others been calling to get through for replacement sets?

    Why has this now changed back to pre-order instead of add to basket on the Eaglemoss shop site? Have they recalled stock back to check breakages and paint quality control or is there another reason that anyone knows of…maybe the virus situation on China?

      maybe theres a second batch coming? On the Forbidden planet site its saying available from the 28th?

      Given the amount of stock they must have had to resend out to customers affected by breakages and the fateful decision to not include air bags in the boxes I wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve exhausted the available stock. My own Barbara was sheared off at both ankles and both the outer and inner boxes looked like they’d been gnawed and smothered by wild animals. It’s all gone quiet with customer services since I alerted them to this. I expect any day to get an email to say they have no replacements left to send out.

      Mine contained airbags but the boxes looked as though they,d been kicked around and crushed under weight. They need to get their act together and sort this before the next sets are due and change courier service if the problem isn,t at their end.

    This is the first ever set of these I have purchased as the closet we will come for now of a figure set of Ian, Susan etc, but for £40 am shocked at the poor quality of these! smaller than I expected and the paint job/likeness are shocking! Will not be buying anymore!

      They’re not in scale with the 5″ range.

    Shocking quality control on these models. Paint specks all over Doctor’s face and chunk missing from Susan. Are these checked before sending out!?

      Obviously not. My kneejerk reaction was ‘get em sent back’ as soon as i saw the breakages. I never even gave it a second thought to inspect the paintjobs. It,ll go back again if the replacements the same in quality.

      Yeah, my hartnell looks like he’s in yellow face, but all the 3 others are very nice, despite some minor paint bleeds, but I’m still very glad that I bought the set, hoping for a 5th doctor, adric, nyssa and tegan one day as well as a unit set with liz, jo and the brig

      Nothing wrong with my figurines all perfect but wasn’t expecting them today tbh I thought it was the 2nd plinth when I saw the parcel on my stairs

      My Ian Chesterton has paint chipped off on his nose, he looks more like a disney character, I’m very disappointed in the quality of the companion sets when compared to the regular range.

      This is a first with these sets. I haven,t recieved as bad as this before even with the singles. All that was missing was a large tube of superglue. The bloke from customer service almost made me laugh when he said i should hang onto them and save for parts if i wanted to mend them.

      Delivering again in the morning. Hoping their in perfect condition. I don,t want to be taping up another box for return.

      Mine isn’t a great paint job and Barbara is snapped off at the ankles. Quality control is shocking with this set

    • The Ergon

      2nd delivery and this time doctors hand broke. Whats going on? Had to reorder again and ask them to get quality (if they have quality) to check next items over before despatch. This is not on. Never had this with these sets before. They seem knocked out in any condition.

    • Alvin

      February 12th, 2020 - 2:55pm

      I’ve been told I’ll be getting a replacement sent out as it wasn’t just Ians face that was chipped, the doctors ring hand was badly smudged as well

      This is the first time I’ve been unhappy with the paint app on the companion sets and first time I’ve asked for a replacement due to the paint app.

      The last companion set I asked for a replacement was with the 2nd Doctor/Jamie set, the Doctor was broken off the stand at the ankles and Eaglemoss kindly sent me 12 replacement sets LOL

      (I sent the extra 11 sets back)

    • Alvin

      My replacement set Doctor had brown spots all over his face, however I managed to remove them using paint thinner on a cotton bud, now his face is ‘spot’less 🙂

    • Chris Howarth

      February 14th, 2020 - 1:36pm

      Yeah, I’m afraid the paint job on my Hartnell was woeful too, but at least they’re all in one piece this time.

      They must be losing money on all these replacements!

      I’ve emailed several tunes and not had a response yet. Very disappointed.

    DPD just dropped off. 3 of the items broke from base and various. Should have known seeing that battered box. And there were airbags inside.

      Mine just dropped off too Hartnell looks like he has had bad outbreak of spots and Susan has chunk missing from her chin. Lovely!

    • Crosby

      February 11th, 2020 - 4:18pm

      Mine arrived in mint condition and no airbags

      They will make all of them every season 1 to 26 just will take longer for the black & white ones to be released they aren’t as easy as others
