Its that time of year again with SDCC 2016 about to start

Wednesday saw previews night between 6-9 pm, that’s 2-5am in the morning for people in the UK.

From what we can see nothing new was on show.

It starts on Thursday at 9.30am which is 5.30pm in the UK so no late night waiting for any information.

If anything is on show it should soon become clear.

The only Doctor Who items we know of so far are the 2 Titans, Ghost 12th Doctor and Glitter Tardis, Titan Comics, an electronic 20 questions Tardis, 5.5 “x 7” giant mug and Rory’s Story Cubes.

This year we have noticed the “exclusive” title has been dropped in many cases and replaced with “first to market” which means it is only sold there first.

I suspect all eyes (where Doctor Who is concerned) will be on the Underground Toys Stand where, assuming its on show, something “big” is coming (and no its not the mug)…

      He’s just speculating/hoping/wishing

      12 with red velvet jacket
      Osgood
      Bill
      Sarah Jane (classic)
      Jamie

      I would literally ask nothing more of them.

    My favourite of the more likely ideas, is the 2 Osgood/Zygon twin packs, one with blue Osgood box and one with red Osgood box, each set with a different variant of Osgood.

      I think it would be better if one had a Zygon, an Osgood and a red Osgood box, and the other had a Zygon, Bonnie and the blue Osgood box.

      A reveal of wave three maybe or a new variant

  • The Legend Doctor

    Maybe its a TARDIS PLAYSET 2013- Present Day one! (that has a function to change from Blue to Orange.. then also has replaceable bottom walls for the round things! 😀 includes

    12th Doctor in Velvet Coat
    Clara from FTR
    Missy in Purple without hat
    Rigsy
    Ashlidr/Me

    All for ÂŁ50!

    and then next year they release “EXPANSION PACKS” with Electronic World Playsets! Including:

    Skaro
    Gallifray
    Earth (Preferably The Diner)
    and others.. 🙂

    OR

    Ashlidr/Clara’s Tardis with Ashlidr and Clara from FTR

    (Can be changed around to be made into a Classic Console Room) 🙂

    What do you think of my ideas?

      Hell Bent is a good way of marketing a new TARDIS console room that multi functions as a classic console. Time will tell, a classic console is dream worthy but at the same time unlikely.
      Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, I have a bad feeling everyone is getting way too excited!

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2016 - 5:39pm

      how often has that happened!

      people spreading the word nothing likely on show anyway

    • The Legend Doctor

      July 20th, 2016 - 5:39pm

      It could be too much excitement or too less.. haha

    • Omega63

      July 20th, 2016 - 5:43pm

      I’ve learnt with this line to try my best to not get excited, if o e day they actually do return to the glory days which I find unlikely then it would feel so much better if you dont expect it. Those who do expect it, well all I can say is you’ll probably always be disappointed or anticlimactic

    • DoctorSong2016

      July 20th, 2016 - 5:45pm

      I think one of the main catalysts as to why people are so excited is what we got last year, we got loads and it seemed like a whole new regular range was starting, so of course people expect to get quite a bit again, it would seem odd to go from all we got last year to nothing this year. If we had just gotten the 12th Doctor figures last year, people would probably be less excited and would be expecting nothing or maybe a 12 variant.

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2016 - 5:54pm

      thing is we know as fact that stuff is coming later in the year

      we also know this “big” item is genuine, but of course it could be as simple as remote a 12″ Davros releases or with new features.

    • The Legend Doctor

      July 20th, 2016 - 6:11pm

      If its a Davros i would get 2 and make one turned into The Doctor.. Don’t know how but i would try my hardest haha

    • Mad Psientist

      July 20th, 2016 - 8:28pm

      In reply to Omega63, I don’t expect to see a return to the glory days unless someone other than Character get the action figure licence. Not necessarily through any fault of their own, I think Character have reached market saturation point with their product, and they’re unlikely to return to their pre – 2010 scale of ambition. I think it would take a new scale with new packaging from a new manufacturer to revitalise the figure range. I’d always prefer to see a U.K. company get the licence, but it does make you wonder what Hasbro, NECA or even DC Collectables could do with the franchise.

      Honestly. though, all Character would have to do to make me happy this year would be to “size up” the 3.75″ 12th figure with the additional articulation and give us a waistcoat/cardigan Capaldi in 5(.5)” scale, blue or red coat, I wouldn’t mind. I’d probably buy both of them – I bought all four “shirt” figures.

    • booboo

      July 20th, 2016 - 8:35pm

      problem is with a new franchise is that they are likely to do a different scale with all the popular figures done all over again

  • TheAgeOfUltron

    July 20th, 2016 - 4:46pm

    I think they might release a variant of the Twelfth Doctor and Clara from season 9, either the Fisher King or another enemy and possibly either Osgood or a new River Song.

    • DoctorSong2016

      July 20th, 2016 - 5:22pm

      Because if a sonic screwdriver is so big (which fair enough it is from CO’s point of view for marketing) then slapping some red paint on an existing figure and calling it a fan favourite figure that people have asked for since it appeared, then that is probably big too.

      July 20th, 2016 - 5:45pm

      If we do chances are that won’t happen, look at series 9 Missy for example, with the line in jeopardy it’s just not financially viable to add a layer of hair to Capaldi as the cost of that will simply lose possible returns and profits when t would sell just as well anyway

    • The super whovian

      July 20th, 2016 - 9:35pm

      I hope the 12th doctor gets a new head sculpt (or a slightly updated one) because as much as I was tempted by the 5inch 12th doctor figure the face looked bland. It Peter Capladi his angry face should be the highlight of the figure

    • Anonymous

      July 20th, 2016 - 9:45pm

      Yeah I hated the last headsculpt. When I got my 5.5 inch 12th doctor I just swapped the head for the time of the doctor head sculpt which is much better.

    Where did you hear about this “big” thing? I’m thinking what it could be? Maybe 12 in Velvet Coat and Bill? The TARDIS with the Clara Memorial with FTR Clara? Missy and Davros Collectors Set? Osgood, Kate and New Zygon set? A new 14 Doctors Set? The speculation is endless it could be anything! Or even a new 2015 TARDIS Playset….?

      First idea may come if UT shows a pictures of their stand whilst setting up (that’s how we first saw a glimpse of the 5.5″ collectors series)

      If not then we will have to wait for people on the ground, so between 2-5am, last year though you could not take pictures although a few got through

      all of this is presuming whatever it is is on show
