    I don’t know if some drinking has been going on over at the Hero Collector Website, but the Doctor Who Figurines 214-218 Reveal’s last part is a direct copy of the Bleeding Cool Article’s 216-218 pictures & mistakes – Really don’t know what’s going on there at all?

      that’s because Here Collector would have sent it to Bleeding Cool, we have had it few times that the order changes but the mag cover has not been updated in time (in this case 218) before going to previews

      Ahem…Krarg! Pretty please with triangular shaped sugar on top!

      I’d seriously love to see a figurine from ‘Shada’. Chronotis would be great too with Skagra’s sphere attached.

      I had a feeling youd pick up on the comment doug pardon me for baiting . LOL.

      Ah,ah, yes when I saw that comment I wondered if ergon was trying to wind someone up.

    I’m sure Swarm would look really good in a larger scale A striking monster design – flamboyant and very deadly… , I would have liked to see a better ‘end’ for him.

    Some comments about series ending at #220 – I certainly hope not – there are plenty more figurines to deliver on (and variants) – I’m still hoping for 1st Doctor in Dalek from the Space Museum and the Terileptil Android for starters…
    EM did hint that they would finish the series with a figurine of the Watcher…

    The 11th Doctor’s first Tardis Console is one of my favourites too.

      Coming back purely to throw the elder ood into the mix. Wish we’d also had the red clockwork droid in the gown from girl in the fireplace but that’s not going to happen. All three Peg Dolls would have been nice as well from night terrors.

      Multiple variant packs could solve that stu..

    • Coleman

      January 19th, 2022 - 11:14am

      Yes, definitely variants of the Clockwork Robots and Peg Dolls. Their Ommitance is a big mistake if this collection does want to include all the Doctors greatest Foes.

    It can be a bit weird seeing figures from stories I’ve not seen, but this one is an easy pass. All that bling. Still looking forward to that Classic Sontaran though…

      If you mean skaal then he’s a new sontaran from this story

      I’m probably giving my age away now as alot of you youngsters probably won’t have heard of them but when Swarm and Azure first appeared in episode one they reminded me of the Pearly king and Queen with those outfits.
      So I can see where your coming from Martino.

    • Coleman

      January 14th, 2022 - 11:27am

      … I think he’s called Skaak.

    • January 14th, 2022 - 1:54pm

      Didn’t notice I’d spelt it wrong Coleman, thanks.

    • Doctor Stu

      January 14th, 2022 - 3:19pm

      I feel like if you had seen the stories this would be one of the ones you’d be excited for. He was definitely a stand out in series 13

      The costume look is meant to be inspired by traditional Mexican Day-of-the-Dead (Nov 1st) designs, I think.

  • Doctor Stu

    January 13th, 2022 - 8:17pm

    Not a fan of the pose as it’s not really reflective of anything he did in the series but he and his sister were awesome villains (before chibbers completely wasted them) so I’m looking forward to it.

    Side note though: what figurines are we all supposed to actually have at this point? Because the last thing that crossed my threshold was issue 205

      It’s the same pose as the picture!

      Non subscribers tend to just buy from fp now. The shop and subscriptions have been so unreliable, you cant blame us. Last i recieved was the 12th in dalek.

    Really nice sculpt. Striking figurines and, as Bryan says a very nice paint job.

    Like you Booboo, I really have my fingers crossed it does not end with 220!

    Oh this is beautiful. The skill in that sculpt and the paintwork superb in the photo.

      hopefully leads me to believe will not end at 220…

  • Coleman

    January 13th, 2022 - 6:14pm

    Great, I’m sure Azure won’t be far behind. Can’t believe we havnt had confirmation of an extension yet though, since we’re so close to 220.

      Eaglemoss development manager for this collection is going to DWAS event so maybe that’s when they will say?

    • John

      January 13th, 2022 - 10:08pm

      They are running out of classic and new series figures that are popular, I really can’t see how many more they could do.

    • The ergon

      January 13th, 2022 - 10:29pm

      Youll be surprised. A lot of the most unpopular story monsters are fast becoming most wanted. So many left that not even a 250 extension wouldnt cover them all but its down to preference.

      Running out of classics ? They barely scraped the surface !

    Can’t wait for this one
