    Not sure about the one in black boots, but the one in green has got to be a Unit figure, surely?

  2. avatar BOJAY says:

    The boots probably belong to a Jo Grant figure. Katy Manning confirmed that one was coming awhile ago. The other is perhaps (oh, please, I hope so) the Brigadier?

  3. avatar castellanspandrel says:

    Yes, I thought it could be Jo a la Colony in Space.

    And yes, I hope it’s the Brig! It must be, surely.

    I see there’s a Pyramids of Mars set. Call me picky, but I’d prefer it if the Sutekh had both heads – the masked head too rather than just the jackal one.

  4. avatar BOJAY says:

    I would have preferred a Marcus Scarman figure in the POM set, rather than a second Mummy. But that’s Character Options for you. I’d love for the day to come when they prove me wrong, and actually display some creative sense for a change.

  5. avatar BOJAY says:

    And,considering what we fans are paying for this stuff, perhaps spend a bit more on the production of genuine likenesses, rather than masks and swapping heads………..

  6. avatar CastellanSpandrel says:

    Yes to all the above! Grateful as ever that these figures exist, but I’ll continue to be choosy about which ones I spend my hard-earned dough on, as there are clearly times when they are having a laugh at the obsessive Who collectors’ expense.

    Maybe Peri in the bikini from lLanet of Fire – though probably not enough plastic for that…

      “Maybe Peri in the bikini from Planet of Fire” – is that what the forum thread entitled ‘We’d love to see them but maybe we can’t get them’ is all about?

  8. avatar Rick Lundeen says:

    I was thinking the first one might be the Rani and the second the Brig, but I guess Jo used to wear some boots back in the day too.

  9. avatar CastellanSpandrel says:

    Good call, Lumdeen!

    Just wonder if it’s a clump of Unit stuff, though, all released together, maybe as a set.

  10. avatar CastellanSpandrel says:

    Sorry – ‘Lundeen.’

    maybe they are both from Colin Baker’s 70′s photo shoot days
