    The Eleven Doctors set, mate.

    Can hardly wait for it myself! Although I will have to since Im planning to get it for Kristmis. I think that even if the Eighth Doctor (my namesake and second favourite Doctor ofcourse) is sold seperately as an FP EXCLUSIVE, I would buy The Eleven Doctors Set any way, and ofcourse give the first two Doctors to my cousin because I dont want them in the slightest. 🙂

    But The Eleven Doctors set is a grand thing, and you get The Fifth Doctor with the Stick of Celery (after all, what is Peter Davisons Doctor wihtout that phenomenal decorative vegetable?)

    The Ninth Doctor in this set is to be wearing what is obviously the most best version of his costumes, (thats right, the Ninth Doctor HAS different costumes!)
    The Black Leather Jacket, and the T-shirt underneath, is it Red like the
    Series- One Tesco set of times recent? NO. Is it Green as it was in the FP
    San Diego Comic Con and Under Ground Toys exclusive figure of The Ninth Doctor was? NO. But would it instead be black? As it was most distinctively in the majority of The Ninth Doctors appearances and Episodes? YES!

    You get all of the Eleven Doctors (obviously) but for a price that is unfair for the people who sold them! 11x 7.99 = £50 ? I dont think so but thats what theyre going to price it for when its out!

    You can get the Seventh Doctor, Sylvester Mccoy (!) in that Cream Jacket without having to buy that rubbish “Single Imperial Dalek with the Blue Dot over priced Forbidden Exclusive”.

    All of the Doctors come with accessories, aprt from Dear Paul, who instead comes with an interchangeable head! 🙂 To be honest there was alot of potential with the accessories, but Tom Baker is still being released WITHOUT a packet of Jelly Babies. Absurd. And Peter Davison without a Cricket Bat, a Cricket Ball, or even The Fifth Doctors hat! And to add further insult, the Fifth Doctor is once again being rediculously re-released with The Sonic Screwdrvier which he only had for about Four Epiodes!

    You get the Green Death variant of The 3RD Doctor. (The best costume variant of the Third Doctor!) 4 those who may be unfamiliar with the GD variation of the costume, take the Sea Devils exclusive and the Death to The Daleks exclusive, mix em together and remove all the Flaws and there ya have it!

    The Second Docotor, who was already released as an FP exlusive for a crazy price, is (youll be very glad to hear) being released in this set in a different Outfit.
    But he still keeps the flute.

    And Last BUT NOT LEAST! One of the most exicting things for me is that finally we can have another variation of the Fourth Doctors costume. For me there only exists one figure of The Fourth Doctor, the POM FP exlusive, the other one, from The Classic Series wave 1, the Fourth Doctor adventcha set, and for goodness sake the Planet of Evil FP exklusiv set, is terrible. As I always say, the only bad thing about The excellent episode The Ark in Space, is that rubbish costume the Fourth Doctor had the misfortune of wearing.

    What ever this variation may be, the most likely suggestions are: The Leisure Hive (love that episode) giant Red Coat from 1980, or ofcourse The charming Grey coat you saw in the Later Seventies in episodes such as The Seeds Of Doom and Destiny of The Daleks.

    If they’re just gonna sell the eighth Doctor in the 11 doctor set then poo.
    Because I’d love the 8th Doctor to come as a single figure, not in a massive box set.
    But if he does just come in the 11 doctor set then it better come soon.


    (If anyone could tell me when the 11 doctor set comes out then thanks)

    Please CO bring out Paul McGann soon ( and a classic console would be great to! )

  • Buzz Lightyear

    April 7th, 2010 - 11:20am

    I think Matt is one of the best likenesses so if they have done all the others like this it should be great.

    cant wait to see whats coming

    April 7th, 2010 - 6:50am

    the 11th doctors sculpt hair is different to the figure

  • Adam Mamoun

    April 7th, 2010 - 3:47am

    The 8th Doctor. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. You can get all the doctors. Hopefully we can get the 11 doctors set

  • Jamie

    April 7th, 2010 - 3:31am

    acually i think the paul mggann figure there looks like a dodgy custom

  • Martin

    April 7th, 2010 - 2:57am

    Is that a Krynoid behind the Doctor?

    great video

  • The 11th Doctor

    April 7th, 2010 - 2:56am

    Its good to see how they are made, they should do more of this so we can see what goes on in the background.

  • Androvax

    April 7th, 2010 - 2:39am

    it would be great to see a 8th doctor figure to get figures of all 11 doctors

  • booboo

    April 6th, 2010 - 7:14pm

    I think they didn’t have this device then

  • Dalek Leader

    April 6th, 2010 - 7:09pm

    If thats how they do the figures how did they do the doctors who are dead?

  • Jamie

    April 6th, 2010 - 4:48pm

    i think the eighth doctor is a marvelous charcter, although his role was short lived, it was somewhat better than tom Bakers lats 4 years that were very sleepy, and other times when you think, why did they cast this guy? i think the figure will be awesome aswell and paul mgann should totally come back as the doctor, not su8re how as theyre onto 11 now except whether they did a two doctor sscenario with Paul and Matt – that would be the shiZ!

  • the key to time

    April 6th, 2010 - 4:41pm

  • sgw1992

  • Charlie

    April 6th, 2010 - 3:30pm

  • Jamie

    April 6th, 2010 - 3:29pm

    the grey sculpt look better than the actual finsihsed article, id by that! the paul mggan figure looks like hes got a tad to much hair above his head…

  • Paul Mcgann

    April 6th, 2010 - 3:23pm

    What the ? fabulous video really interesting but Paul McGann is there. This in official video so they cant mind it being seen

  • Charlie
