More Doctor Who Sets Later in the Year

In a year when leaks seem to be in fashion, the USA distributor for Doctor products has gone and sent out emails to multiple addresses with a list of previously unknown figures and sets due later in the year. In the days of social media sadly once its out its out.

Presumably as usual they will be B&M exclusives in the UK apart from it seems the Single carded Blue top 13th Doctor. As they sent out the list we assume these will all be sold in the USA by the new distributor.

There are no pictures and no more information or any hint as to exactly whats in the sets so all you can do is speculate at this stage.

  • Doctor Who – 13th Doctor Action Figure (Blue Top) USA Exclusive.
  • Doctor Who – History of the Daleks Twin Pack A The Chase
  • Doctor Who – History of the Daleks Twin Pack B The Daleks Masterplan
  • Doctor Who – Companions Of the 4th Doctor Set B
  • Doctor Who – Friends and Foes of the 13th Dcotor Set B
  • Doctor Who – 1975 U.N.I.T Terror of the Zygons Set
  • Doctor Who – 5th Dr & Tardis Set – Castrovalva
  • Doctor Who – Ace and Dalek Rocket Launcher Pack
  • Doctor Who – 12th Doctor and Davros

    I know it’s unlikely but I’d love them to do their own moulds for Torchwood figures at some point. I know Sci-fi collector already made some which are still brilliant but the scale is a little off as are a couple of faces. Since the head sculpts have been so brilliant for the dw figures I think it would be great!

    They could do jack, Gwen and ianto set (using the jack DW figure sculpt, a suit body for ianto from one of the preexisting figures with new head sculpts and something similar for Gwen).

    A second set could be toshiko, Owen and maybe even Martha. It wouldn’t be too hard to do Martha in a lab coat, toshiko – Sarah Jane figure in a coat could always be used as a body. As for owen they could use a figure from primeval like Stephen for the body.

    I know this would never happen but it would be pretty cool. On another note does anyone know why an Owen figure was never made in the first place?

      Would love there to be some Torchwood figures. They could do a Gwen as there is the headsculpt for Gwenyth which was never released sadly. CO probably only have the license to do Doctor Who and not Torchwood and since its unlikely to return they won’t do it, but Gwen, Lanto and Tosh have been in Who.

      Never understood why an Owen figure wasn’t made, bit weird to leave one character out, especially as they did John Hart and Owen featured more than Lanto, he was the third most prominent character after Gwen and Jack. If they did ever release Torchwood figures it would be cool if they did a Suzie and Hub playset which I always wanted, especially the Torchwood fountain.

      Owen was destined for wave 3 but wave 2 tanked and it was all cancelled (some of the figures ended up in the £1 shop), Great shame.

      I think they would have sold a lot better if they had been in scale with the CO figures.

    I think we will just be getting tweaked repaints. Would they really give us new companions for the 4th Dr? What 5th Dr do you think will be included with the tardis?

      Why not? They’re flying off the shelves at the moment, unlike many of the DC/Scooby-Doo/Walking Dead peg-warmers that are still on the shelves month after month … probably B&M are somewhat bemused that they (mostly) sell so well.

    What interests me is that the leaked list cited the Companions of the 4th Doctor as
    • ‘Dr Who – Companions Of the 4th Dr Set B (2 asst)’

    I’ve learned (from being allowed by a kindly B&M staff member to get my two Daleks sets this time out of a brown card box sitting on a pallet on the shop floor, not yet put out) that ‘2 asst’ means 2 different products, assorted (‘asst’), ship in the one card box outer, like the two Daleks sets did (it said ‘2 asst’ on the side of that box and at that point, that bit of text suddenly made sense to me).

    So… does this mean that Companions of the 4th Set B will ship in a 12-pack box like this wave, but there would be 6 of one set and 6 of some other one?

    And if so – what would the be the two different sets shipping in the same cardboard outers?

      it could simply mean the sets have the same bar code even though they are different products (like The Daleks)

      set set b will be 12 in a box of whatever set b is (or it could be something completely different)

      we know that list is old as well so if could be things weren’t 100% finalised when it was sent.

      Gareth, the telling bit was that the distributor prefaced the list in their message to say “We have 9 new SKUs”. That also makes booboo’s assumption valid that the same UPC applies, which would naturally imply the same SKU too.

      But yes, the list is old now. Even their leaking of the list might have led to CO revising production, or, punitively, even availability to the USA distributor..

    My precictions for summer 2021…I think a companions of the first doctor 3 pack, a companions of the 5th Dr set and enemies of the 10th Doctor would be a cool lot of packs. 1st Dr and tardis set and history of the daleks set 5 and 6.

    Would really love to see a ‘Companions of the 10th Doctor’ set with a new Rose, Martha & Donna figure. Like the Rose figure seen in the leaked photos from series 2

      I would just love new figures of the three companions, like:
      Rose from impossible planet
      Martha in her doctor uniform OR normal body with long hair down from finale
      Donna from Stolen Earth in the brown coat

    • benjaminn

      or maybe even a donna figure from ‘partners in crime’ using body from primeval figure?

      They already re-released the Companions Set a few years ago which is basically all of 10’s companions in one.

    Loved that last lot of B&M sets and very happy that The Doctor has her ‘Fam’ complete! Very excited for the next batch of B&M exclusives!

    I wonder if “The Chase” set would contain a blue domed Guard Dalek (previously released as part of the Sound FX Dalek range) and maybe the Supreme Dalek too? Or would the Supreme perhaps be left for “The Daleks’ Master Plan” set and “The Chase” simply get a regular silver slatted Dalek alongside a Guard Dalek?

    In 2022, I think they should do a SJA wave with two sets. Sarah Jane,Clyde and Luke and Maria, Rani and Sky. It’d be to mark the fifteenth anniversary of the first airing of the show because eventually, they will run out of ideas for Doctor who sets.

      sadly different license which would probably be far to expensive for just a few figure

    Upon thinking. Companions of the 4th Doc Set B could be an amazing chance to solve a problem we would encounter when we get to the 5th Doctors companions.

    So you would have Adric being in the set with two other variants of what we got in the current set

    So the “Companions of the 5th Doctor set” comes with a Tegan, Nyssa and Turlough so we complete the Davison era companions!

    (Assuming they got plans to do companions for each era and are planning in advance!)

      Hopefully we might see K.9 and Leela in this collection, probably before Adric, Nyssa, and Tegan. have they ever produced figures of the latter 3? Can’t recall ever seeing them.

    • booboo

      August 2nd, 2020 - 5:36pm

      No not yet. but we have had plenty of K9’s and Leela’s

      I assumed, perhaps naively, that set B would repaints/variants of Sarah and the Romanas

      Like how the daleks big finish sets came out with variant paint and such
