Re: Underrated/Overrated Stories

And ooh! Yes - "The Beast Below". Moffat himself said that deserved another rewrite, and I agree: if you focus more on the moral conflict and eventual reveal of the Space Whale/its intent, Amy trying to get used to things, and the Doctor's conflicts - it's GREAT Doctor Who. The winders and the nurse...

Re: Underrated/Overrated Stories

All respect to the opinions here, but I LOVE "Revelation". I agree it's totally flawed, especially with regard to the mentioned "Doctor and Peri spend the first episode waiting to get to the story". But it's great for Davros, and has so much else that's good going on. I'm also one of those: McCoy's ...

Re: Possible Repaints for B&M

2 definately needs a rehead. Maybe with Salamander in mind. The existing head is pretty good for salamander in my opinion, I'd say the opposite; it would be nice to get a happy 2 head. I'd love 2 with THAT hat, personally. Reuse the body, I'd actually love that more than the cancelled fur coat figu...

Re: Reuse of props/costumes.

There's also the infamous space suits from "The Tenth Planet" - They become Zoe & Jamie's in "The Wheel in Space" & then ends up as bounty hunter wardrobe in "The Empire Strikes Back". And then, there's the orange new series space suits - Capaldi confirmed he's still wearing Tennant's in "Kill the M...

Re: Reuse of props/costumes.

Off the top of my head: The Silurian hall in "The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood" is the observation decks from "The End of the World". And the Silurian consoles and examination plinths are reused as the Shansheeth devices in the SJA's "The Death of the Doctor" Axons sprayed green = Krynoids, obviously. I'...

Re: Possible Repaints for B&M

Here's one I'm wondering about, could they repaint either a Magnus Greel or a timelord body, stick a pinty shoulder piece on and add a new head and have a Draconian figure? I feel like that would be do-able. I have Greel and he's got a switchable head so that's the easy part. New head sculpt would ...

Re: Possible Repaints for B&M

I'm going to propose an entire wave of sets. When I say propose, I really mean wish... 3-packs: Revenge of the Cybermen - Cyberman x2, Sarah Jane (new head) Monsters - Silurian (Sea devil w/ new head), SV-7 (Glowing eyes), Meglos as 4th Doctor 1980s - Valeyard (Time Lord w/ new collar), Hatted 5th ...

Re: Possible Repaints for B&M

I don’t see why we don’t have the Mondasian Cybusman painted with the glowing blue chest plate as seen in The Doctor Falls. I hope they'll get to it eventually. B&M 2020? Here's an angle we haven't thought of. What if the Big finish lines get another go? Using the standards we've seen so far (Just ...

Re: Possible Repaints for B&M

It was seen briefly in The Doctor Falls in 2017 Quite true, now I remember, however the operative word is "briefly". That does remind me; I'd like a repaint of the Mondasian Cyberman into it's series 10 version. More than briefly. There was an army of the new-fangled silver bastards IIRC. ....and t...
