    And the subscriber issues seem to be getting further and further behind. How can this be able to buy in a month’s time, yet I’ve still not received issues 194 & 195? Eaglemoss really are treating loyal subscribers poorly at the moment – please sort it out.

    Recently watched Battlefield. Just realised how much I’d like a Morgaine figurine from Eaglemoss. What a great outfit worn by Jean Marsh. Some older fans might remember seeing her before in Dr Who.

    This will be interesting as even the doctor doesn’t know the history of the time lords

      Ha! You’re quite right, and I can’t see the figure any other way now!

      Ha ha. Its quite funny. At least people can’t say Eaglemoss don’t have a sense of humour…

    Very nice figurine and equally nice to see Tom as issue 200 and congratulations to Neil, Ben and all for reaching that landmark. Hoping the collection keeps going for a while yet after 220.

    I’m still hoping for more characters/monsters from mid and late Tom seasons…still a wee bit underrepresented in comparison to the first three.

    The Williams seasons are still quite underrated I think and I’d love to see the Collector, Adrasta (it would be nice to commemorate the wonderful Myra Francis), the Shrivenzale, the Calleach, Seer, the Shadow, Krarg, Foamasi and Meglos for example. Even a Swampie would be cool…I’ve resorted to making my own Rutan like a few others have!

    Good to see EM issue another iconic costume for the fourth doctor (my favourite)- seriously considering adding this one to my collection.

    Really pleased with EM’s figurine choices at the moment: both the Cybermaster, the Cloister Wraith are simply superlative choices.

    Please please may we get the Terileptil Android in the collection – I really think it would make a terrific figurine.

    Agreed the Black Guardian would have been a welcome for 200 but this is nice.

      Black Guardian is likely to be something a little unusual. A big problem for us is the lack of imagery of any Guardian, black or white, for the magazine. Bear with us.

      Wouldn,t you just embellish something that couldnt be seen? For example you only see the Bandrils neck and head in Timelash but you could imagine from your point of view what the bottom half must look like. There are plenty of examples and not just WHO monsters. Saying that It must be difficult trying to appease everybody with this in mind.

    200 would have been the ideal opportunity to do the Black Guardian after the Master and Valeyard in other milestone issues.

    For me the hand is totally wrong and detracts from an otherwise nice figure. It’s far too big and fingers seem too long and all the same size. Definitely going to place the figure at the back of my display so only the head and shoulders can be seen clearly.

      Looks like the middle fingers are under the edge of the robe, so he’s holding it. Second image certainly seems to show that.

      Its a lovely figurine but i thought they might have pulled out all the stops for Issue 200 and gone the whole nine yards ‘extra special’ given the effort and achievement its taken to get to this landmark issue.

      You just have no idea how far and how many steps were pulled 🙂

      April 27th, 2021 - 1:33pm

      That’s very much on our list. The text of the skin is a weird one tho. Bear with us. There’s another special set with another 11tj Doctor planned first however.

      I love the figurine all the same. Neil why,ll your here, can we expect more set announcements anytime soon, that you are aware of, without giving anything away?

      I’m hoping the regular set can be extended just a little further than the already mentioned 220 issues, which takes the collection up to the first half of next year.
      Now if the powers-that-be could stretch the run for another 30 issues, up to 250, then that would bring us all into the 60th anniversary year with perhaps an increased amount of interest from fans and collectors alike.

      Of course to add several dozen more issues then there would need to be more figures added. Hmmmm, I wonder if there’s any characters or variations from the decades long history of the programme that haven’t already been seen in the collection? (sorry Neil)…the problem is not coming up with a list of figures, it’s trying to cut down too many long, long lists of characters into a select few for the regular issues. Hence the boxed sets (which I’m sure collectors would like to see continuing once the main run of fortnightly issues eventually comes to an end).

      Long may the collection, in whatever format, continue.
      (and many thanks to the people behind the collection for producing something I’ve always wanted since I saw the little figures in the Five Doctors 20th anniversary story…ye gods do I feel old!)

      No, it was confirmed months ago it was extended to 220

    Interesting choice, though I thought 4 Tom’s was already too many, but this is a nice treat at least, better than another normal Tom. I wonder what will be in the magazine.

    I’ve become obsessed with the Timelord silhouettes we’ve been getting over time. The Valeyard, TLV Doctor, Rassilon, Borusa, the inquisitor, they all look amazing standing next to each other, especially if you throw Missy in there as well or the new Master. And now we have the Cloister Wraith, cyber masters and this one on its way. So this will fit right in.

      but i wonder what made this fdigurine significant enough for the 200 Issue? wouldnt this have been better in a special set with say a chancellary guard and Goth/Leela?.
