So back when the Series 9 Capaldis and the 10 in tuxedo were announced we were meant to get one more figure with them before it was cancelled - did we ever find out what that figure was?
Yes you're right, they don't even sell Doctor Who figures in Dubai.

I assumed another capaldi varient, possibly his magicians apprentice outfit. but people got so annoyed that two of the new products were varients and a tardis rerelease they thought not to bother.

If that's the case then fair enough. Just curious.

Pretty sure they wouldn't make a business decision because about 5 idiots were angry at them on twitter...

Yeah, I agree. I don't think that was it.

IIRC didn't some funding fall through or somesuch?

Don't think we ever got a real explanation, we'll probably never know.

It certainly doesn't have anything to do with 5 idiots rambling on Twitter ruining it for everyone for once. :D
(although the internet has contributed to some figures not being released in the past)

From what I heard at the time, when the Underground releases were cancelled for the US (alledgedly because of UGT's financial troubles at the time), all but one of the toys were already in production. The fourth figure was simply cancelled because they hadn't started production on it, and it made no sense to spend more money on it when they had lost their partner.

Doesn't mean they won't release it some day if they get the opportunity.

And I assume that if it had been a Capaldi variant, it would have been released as production had already been made for the Capaldi figures.

What was the 4th figure? Do we have any educated guesses?

Also, what figures were cancelled due to the internet?

The Yeti, apparently.
Someone leaked a picture of the unapproved prototype at a time when negociations were still ungoing for the use of the Great Intelligence in the series. The rights owners alledgedly refused to approve the toy at the time. The situation was then resolved, but it was too late to do the figure.
