They actually lowered it as well, it was initially 500.

No they were always making 500 but it was 350 preorders needed for it to go ahead.

The order count has gone down to 344 so it appears someone has pulled out.

Shows there’s little interest in these figures I guess. I’m amazed the 3rd Doctor is still going ahead. I would consider Jodie, but that face sculpt is atrocious

The sculpt for the alternate head looks pretty good I thought. I don't get how the quality of their heads has gone down over the years, even between the first and second versions of Matt Smith.

'thedoctorwhosite' stated up until a few days ago that the item will only get the go ahead if 500 orders are received by the end of the campaign. Now maybe that was wrong however I took it to be that they lowered the amount needed to enter production as low as they could (350) without altering the price when they realized they were never going to reach 500 preorders.

It’s odd that like half the preorders filled up straight away and now it’s struggling

I wonder if they’ll extend the Time by a few days or something.

It must be crushing for some people that it’s 4 orders away from happening, but this late in the day it’s never gonna happen.
