Sebastian Hamilton returns with an in-depth look at the Whoniverse toy merchandise.
After a fairly quiet few weeks things have recently taken off again in the figure collecting community. For a number of weeks the top stories have revolved around other ranges casting doubts on the future of our figures and special offers, but in the last few days weâ€™ve had new pictures gearing up to exciting releases!
Very exclusive Doctors
To start with however we had the news that the Forbidden Planet Exclusive Classic Doctor packs (thatâ€™s the black and white 1st and 2nd Doctors, each packaged with a black and white classic enemy) are to be a run of just 1250 per set. However these are still available on Forbidden Planet (though the 2nd Doctor is running low apparently).
If you are interested in purchasing these, the colour versions of those sets or the Real Time 6th Doctor figure the best advice is to waste no more time and order now as they could sell out very soon indeed. But before you doâ€¦
Torchwood Wave 2 Images
The final images approved for production of Ianto, Tosh, Blowfish Man and Captain John, making up the Torchwood Wave 2 team, have been released. Reception has been slightly mixed, but mainly because of the quality of photograph and this has been slightly rectified.
Generally feelings are very positive towards these figures and if you are interested I would advise ordering as soon as you can through www.scificollector.co.uk.
The exact date for release is yet to be confirmed, though Doctor Who Figures Online is hoping to have lots more exciting things coming in the run up!
Another roundup will follow in a few weeks, and I expect weâ€™ll have even more surprises then!
