The Peri sculpt is good for customs but I don’t think it’ll work as an actual figure because too much needs changed. I’d probably just use one of the Primeval Abby Maitland figures.
What would have to be changed besides the shoes?

arguably nothing, since she's an audio-only character they could dress her in anything

Yeah, that was my thinking.

Would anyone be up for historical sets?

For example...

Charls Dickens (Yana body?)
Queen Victoria (Gelth body)
Reneitte (Gelth body)

Shakespeare (Yana body?)
Agatha Christie (SJA bane dress)
Churchill re-release

Or theme them ..

Geth Zombie (male) (suit body_new head)
Chals Dickens (Yana body?)
9th Dr re-release

Doomfinger (could a new head be used on a Lilith?)
Bloodtide (new head)
Shakespeare (Yana body?)

10th Dr
Donna
Agatha

Just some ideas! It would be nice to have some historical characters if rights allow. Well, we got a Churchill! ;)

Doomfinger and Bloodtide were on my rehead list with Taren Capel.

If they plan to use a Cladia Brown again they need to change either the coat or bib.

not exactly a Primeval reuse (apart from the head, but that’s only because there isn’t an actual Ruth Bradley headsculpt) but i made a quick Molly O’Sullivan custom and honestly, an official release along the lines of this custom could work quite well. it’s just Novice Hame with a bit of a repaint

That's brilliant. It never occurred to me before.

this possibly falls more under the ‘customs’ category, but i made a couple of quick ‘mock ups’ of how CO could produce a Molly O’Sullivan figure using existing parts, with only a new headsculpt. as she first appears in dark eyes could be very easily achieved using the Novice Hame body and a new head, however the sleeves are a little off and the cape at the back isn’t accurate. also, the figure seems kinda bulky to me, and she’s only really fully in uniform in her first to audio stories. the second ‘mockup’ was made using the Missy body mould, which works for her uniform, minus the cloak and apron. the collar isn’t quite right, and obviously she wears a full dress as opposed to a skirt and jacket, but i feel like it passes enough. i, for one, wouldn’t complain as it would give the eighth doctor somebody to stand with on his shelf 😂
