Man, it has to be frustrating being a toy company.
Toy Company: "We've got these great toys we want to promote!"
BBC: "You can't yet."
Toy Company: "Why not?"
BBC: "We want the wallpaper to be a surprise."
To be fair the toy companies don't do themselves favours much either
BBC : "Here's 50+ Years Of Doctor Who figure ideas"
Fans : "We would love to see (insert figure idea here)...or just some re-releases, maybe some Daleks?"
Toy Company : (once the licence/copyright/likeness red tape it all tied up) "Right, lets ignore what the fans want and release a string of inaccurate, poorly made figures so we can make as much money as possible and spend as little as possible"
Ok I've overstated it a little for comedic effect but you get my drift.
And to be fair as well (if the BBC gave their permission) the toy companies could still showcase the known character figures, and as for the TARDIS model they could just release some promo pictures without the doors open but confirm the existence of lights/sounds/interior card etc...there would no doubt be angry fans that demand to see EVERYTHING and EVERY detail but personally I think most of us would just be happy to know we're getting it and what they would generally look like
