    I think Character have the licence but Underground toys commission the figures through them hence they can put there own name on it.

    I think that how it works

    Someone asked at the UT SDCC Booth and got two hints about the ‘Big Reveal’ at 8pm tomorrow:

    1) It’s a Classic
    2) It’s not a Figure

    Classic TARDIS Playset? Bessie?
