So nothing from modern Who is on the table?

For old sculpts, I really wish they could find a way to release the better Rose and Bride Donna figures. I would LOVE a Doctor Donna, but I get that's never happening.

Not that I am aware of. They did have the Capaldi/Davros set last year, so not out of the question, and I assume the History of the Daleks will continue into the NuWho era.

I wish they'd fill in some of the NuWho gaps caused by the 3 3/4" line being the focus - Kate Stewart, Osgood, modern Ice Warrior, etc.

In case there are any Doctor Who gamers out there - a new game with 13 and 10 is dropping in September.

Only 65 units left for the Fur Coat set.

I’m all in for everything on the leaked list especially the 5th Docs companions.


And a short wish list for new Classic figs I’d love to see

I really don't understand this company and their logic when it comes to releasing classic Who characters. Looking at some of the Who action figure websites, it appears that every classic character set released since 2014/2015 has been a box set of some sort. Either it's been the Doctor with a TARDIS or a companion with multiple enemies. For those of us who just want a particular character, it's a crazy situation. I just want to pick and choose, not be forced to buy multiples of something I don't want. Very frustrating. Sigh....

I think the only retailer really supporting the classic line is B&M in England, and they always seem to ask for 3-packs or TARDIS packs - and now the Dalek packs. They have been caring three packs for at least 10 years (classic and modern) - mostly repaints and enough new tooling for a new figure or two each year. I think almost every classic release has been through them the last 5 or 6 years - a slight change with Character Options now doing their own exclusives. B&M release these at the equivalent of $25 to $30 for the three figures - my sense is that single releases have no support at retail, so this is the only option as it just isn't that popular I don't think.

Apparently there is no clear retailer for the US market at this time, the folks who carried it last year are likely not doing so this time.

I'm just happy they are making anything, especially some new classic companions.

Pretty awesome to be getting a 60's companion!

Though Ian is wearing his outfit from the start of Unearthly Child, not Keys or Marinus.

These sets look great but I had to fix them a bit to look more real.

Hope we don’t have to sell our souls to get a hold of them if they’re not going to be on Amazon this time.

Yeah, it was a shame we never got that figure.
