Re: Season 13 and beyond...?

As an afterthought - it happens every year, but I feel like the whole "<DOCTOR/SHOWRUNNER> TO LEAVE??" has really ramped up since Jodie started and it's always really annoying to see? So, I know it's the not-recent past, but speculation with Tennant kicked off hard his second season. (In that case,...

Re: Season 13 and beyond...?

"Same cast and crew" So, Brad, Tosin and Mandip are staying, or? As an afterthought - it happens every year, but I feel like the whole "<DOCTOR/SHOWRUNNER> TO LEAVE??" has really ramped up since Jodie started and it's always really annoying to see? Crew I can see but the cast bit seems odd unless i...

Re: USA Toy stock now available

So, American fans..... You can search and pre-order the sets on Amazon US. They're all GOGS1 listings, and estimate delivery for August 10-12. The ordering site still doesn't work/hasn't been updated, but nobody's perfect, I guess. ;) I recommend searching for "Doctor Who", "Character Options", and ...

Re: Hey Kids! Let's Brainstorm Primeval Figure Re-Uses!

I am desperate for a "friends of the 9th Dr' set! I really want a Jackie Tyler figure! Give us a series 1 set with Jackie, Mickey and Harriet Jones! As much as I wouldn't be interested, I endorse it and feel for 9th Doctor fans: The ONE character who most deserves more variants and a better figure ...

Re: How Would You End Doctor Who?

I mean, he came close to ending it back in 1986. I'm joking, of course, I love Colin Baker. But seriously, the Colin Baker era is not for everyone. I mean, that era itself was only occasionally "for" Colin Baker himself. The script editor (who certainly had more involvement and control over what ac...

Re: Season 13 and beyond...?

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EW65SURX0AAl4Au.jpg I mean, I appreciate the positivity and stiff upper lip in the face of pandemic/delays/etc, but ultimately this is about as conclusive as "the check is in the mail": Good intent, little certainty. (Which is the whole entertainment industry now, really...

Re: B&M doctor who sets.

Honestly, I feel like most of us would be happy with something like this: <snip> Honestly, I would be happy with one. Any of them, really. And I don't think we'd get any more than that. If it had to be one, easy call: Hartnell console. Hear me out. With repaints, you can package it with: *Any Hartn...

Re: B&M doctor who sets.

So would I. I'd gladly pay over $100 for a "mattycollector" style crowdfunded thing, electronic or not. (What did Castle Grayskull go for? $250? And Jabba's Sail barge was what? $500?) I think part of the reason the junk TARDIS tanked was because it didn't look much like a "proper" TARDIS console r...

Re: USA Toy stock now available

So my hope is that, while B&M started shelf stocking this weekend, the US release will be more typical and drop Monday. (Weekend release of anything in the US is very atypical.) At this point, I'm really holding out due to respect for the line/what it's given us this year, and Al's vouching. Word o...
