I have a question!

Why did the Fez and Mop 11th doc figure get a new tweed jacket and arm sculpt and why was it never used again? It’s a really good sculpt!

I think it was reused in the 13 Doctors Set :)

No, that was just a repaint of the standard 11th doctor figure

Kinda feel like this is in the "He couldn't tell us even if he wanted to, until he can" category.

I'd love to be wrong. :)

Question for The Lurker -

Was the decision to release the Ainley Master in a suit rather than his regular outfit simply one of cost, or was it because it was an exclusive and the intent was to subsequently do a general release of the regular outfitted figure?

I think you once said you would like to release the regular outfitted figure but that costs prevented a new body sculpt and no re-use of current figures was close enough. Given the generally warm reception the approximation of Romana I has received would you now consider releasing something more of an approximation than a totally screen accurate appearance in this case?

Thank you!

A - Yes purely on cost basis and also finding a story we could tie his stone column TARDIS into as well.

A - No i think the 80’s Master if released again would need to be a fully correct figure .. thats not to say we could not reuse some elements of another figure BUT unlike Romana and I’ve looked at this a few times and there is very little that could be used from other figures in regard to his iconic outfit .

Shame there aren't any other characters with puffy sleeves.

Seriously puffy sleeve deficit in Doctor Who history.
