    Boots in bluewater had the 12th Dr figure today along with loads of wave 1 (no rares though) they also had the angels take Manhattan and hide play sets and the new packaging Tardis with series 7 interior.

    A thought occurred to me today about this figure. In the Argos catalogue, they showed a promo picture of this figure which had the first headsculpt of Capaldi and the red lining and when the actual figure came out, we got something entirely different. Now my question is; Is this technically false advertisement and misleading?

      probably covered by small print, however Argos have known for weeks ( and i know that for a fact) the image is incorrect and have still not removed it from their website at least.

    • Monty

      October 1st, 2014 - 10:50pm

      I checked the catalogue and found some small print about how some of the images in the catalogue may be different to the actual item. But who really gets a catalogue just to read the small print? Would it make better sense to put this information on the page where the 12th Doctor figure is and put in small, yet noticeable, writing to explain that the item that’s been shown in the catalogue isn’t really the actual product?

    I think people need to learn its an action figure, its not gonna look exactly like him but it represents him…its also 3.75″. Is there ever an obi wan kenobi figure that looks like Ewan McGregor exactly??

      @TSPITL try the ABC Shops or Popcultcha. I know the ABC Shops have only just got wave 2 of 3.75 so maybe in 2-3 months. Popcultcha are selling wave three at the moment but not the 12th doctor yet.

    I think this 3.75 inch range is very good. This is because it’s very rare to find a figure range from a very successful tv/film show for under £10 per figure. Not only that but these figures are actually quite good- maybe the likenesses aren’t that good, but detailwise it’s just what we would expect from an average Star Wars figure, and they cost £3 more! On top of that they don’t waste time making obscure characters like ‘4-LOM’ or ‘that pilot guy from episode 2’. I know I sound like I’m hating on Hasbro, but too many people hate on character!

    • Trenzalore

      September 28th, 2014 - 4:51pm

      Really shows how ghastly the new face sculpt looks and don’t even get me started on that expression.
      I think what would work is the left one’s face sculpt with the right one’s hair sculpt.

    • mick

      September 28th, 2014 - 5:07pm

      looks so much better don’t you think don’t understand why character had to change it

    • StetsonDoctor

      September 28th, 2014 - 5:47pm

      Thanks, that’s…interesting. The face sculpt without a doubt looks better, however I prefer the shorter hair. So I agree with Trenzalore, a mix between the two.

      Get the wave 3 re release regeneration capaldi which actually has grey hair. believe me, I have it 🙂 and put the head on the new 12th doctor body. Then you have the 12th doctor 🙂

      I am planning on painting some red lining. For me it’s the defining feature. I would say that the Old face sculpt would have been good with another facial expression. At what point in the time of the Doctor did he smirk like that? The new face sculpt is better than the wave 2 in my opinion as the hair is the right colour and he’s not pulling that Joker-like smile.

    • Dalekparadigm2

      September 29th, 2014 - 11:38pm

      The original Capaldi figure had wrinkles – that is what the new face mould is missing. He doesn’t look old enough
