I wish I had started my search on eBay for them sooner. I've missed out on several "Buy Nows".

There's one that went up for Auction today. It runs out next Sunday. The price will shoot up to stupid levels fast.

I only started looking for more Mechons' yesterday.

The Mechanoid easily tops both my lists for "How does this actually exist?" and "WOW, this is better realized than I could've hoped". For me, Its existence counterbalances the lack of other shoo-in type figures we never got, like a 1970 Silurian or "Wheel" Cyberman. I'd welcome a rerelease too.

That said, BOT: Question for the Lurker:

I know we haven't dipped as often into the 60s with the line; Do you have a favourite Hartnell story? Troughton?

Q1-Does the mold tool for the Mechonoids still exist or did it get scrapped?
A – Scrapped? … no its in storage

Q2 - If it does exist, what is the likelihood that we'll ever see them again as figures?
A – they were not a big a seller first time out as we hoped and hung around on shelf for a while so its unlikely currently

Q - I know we haven't dipped as often into the 60s with the line; Do you have a favourite Hartnell story? Troughton?
A – Hartnell – Dalek invasion of Earth .. Time meddler. Troughton – Dominators, Abominable Snowmen

Q - Is there a classic figure you produced that you still pinch yourself today and say out of surprise “I can’t believe we were actually able to make this!”?
A - The Drashig! Lol lol lol … actually lots of them … Voc Robots and the K1…lots!

Q -There seemed to be a heavy focus on 70s monsters and figures during the (first?) height of the classic range. Is this due to the popularity of the era, or just because the Letts/Hinchcliffe eras produced some really cool looking monsters and characters that look great on the shelf?
A - Mostly because it’s a hugely popular era of the show … the Pertwee through to the Tom Baker eras are very popular .. and yes I think the monsters were more iconic .. very memorable.

Q -Are there certain eras or doctors that sell better than others?
A – yes

Question for the Lurker

Hi Al

Were you involved with the Character Building figures? I thought they were great.

Oof. As an American, I feel like I should apologize for your having to live with that as a Briton.

Are there any figure moulds that simply do not exist any more?

Hi Al,

Would you ever make more time squad figures? These were great and that funky cartoon style is very in at the moment with pop vinyls ect.

I have a question!

Is the Rani a character you would eventually like to do a figure of and if so, which costume would you choose
