I don't think so that the Season 12 figure had the tie out, and this definetly appears to be tucked into the waistcoat, plus it would still have to be a new sculpt as the base figure used here is a Third Doctor and the collar on that figure is part of the body mould.
So either they've created a whole new torso sculpt, or they've created a new inset piece for the third Doctor torso, either way I'm 90% sure this is a new sculpt in some form
Yeah I’m not sure why I thought it was. I swear I saw one with the weird long tie he wears. My apologies. Perhaps it’s the waistcoat insert from the Ainley figure?
Looking at that fourth doctor, the way the boots have been coloured to be trousers looks...odd
Sad there’s no monster variants in this wave, there’s so many that could still be done.
No worries, we see so many variants even I find it hard to keep track at times
Although it's not the waistcoat insert form Ainley either as it doesn't actually have one, the waistcoat on the Ainley figure is actually part of the jacket sculpt.
And I noticed that on the Fourth Doctor too, it is a very strange especially as I don't believe he even wore boots in Talons? Which begs the question why didn't they use the normal Third Doctor legs?
But now I'm going to be very critical, as happy as I am that we're getting new variants it really is starting to get to me that it seems like no one is actually paying attention when these figures get put together.
As someone else has previously pointed out the first previous image of the Third Doctor with TARDIS has the frilled shirt from the regenerated Fourth Doctor which looked fantastic but then the updated image just shows the normal fan tie repainted white...so they've said is here's what we COULD make and be a bit more accurate...but here's what you're actually going to get (probably because it will cost us less)
I really hope that they go with the first preview sculpt as it looks so much better.
Putting money reasons/kitbashing/business models etc aside I really can't fathom why they wouldn't be willing to pay that little bit more to make a more accurate figure that will be more popular amongst the fans, than release an inaccurate variant, which people will still buy but criticise, especially when they've shown they COULD have made the figure more accurate to start with.
I think it's been well established by now that it's got nothing to do with it not being possible as we have proof in these sets that it is...it's just pure laziness/unwillingness to spend as far I can see.
