For every good there's a bad. So, what is, in your opinion, the worst figures CO have ever released for DW? My personal picks are:

Destroyed Cassandra (I'm going to die for that)
13 Doctors Fifth Doctor
Original 3.75" Clara
Captain Jack with Cap

So, what about you?
Is it bad that I actually love or at least like all of those?

Well you've got to admit destroyed cassandra is well made, it's biggest issue is that it's kind of random and pointless.

The 13 Doctors set Fifth Doctor is on the whole pretty good, it's just that odd paint app on the lips that throws it. It gets many points from me though for not having weird shaped legs like many of the previous releases, i'm glad they sorted that on many Doctors in that set.

The original 3.75" Clara isn't really much worse than the others in that range i'd say, the biggest issues with it (face/leg stability) are an inherent problem with the scale really.

I actually really like CAPtain Jack (see what I did there?), wish the original came with the hat, you can never have enough removable hats.

The head-sculpt on the original capaldi is pretty bad, and the height makes the figure worse. The series 9 version is ridiculously better

I actually think the night of the Doctor eighth is pretty bad, the arms are all weird and in the wrong place on his body, and he’s way too tall. It’s not a bad figure I guess, but there’s just something so off about it that I never go near it :lol:

13 Doctors 5th is one of my favourite variants apart from the fact that his arms are a bit loose - this seems to be coming more common in newer figures?

3.75" Clara - The likeness is a little poor but I'd love to see all of her outfits upscaled for the 5" line!

Jack with Cap - haven't actually got him (got the Empty Child twin pack) but I'll hunt one down on eBay because I think he looks especially great with that cap.

My issue with NotD 8 is his new face sculpt looks younger than the first in my opinion but I do like the body sculpt.

I'm not a fan of the Chip figure.

Maybe it's the near-complete lack of articulation.

I was going to put him myself, but I just felt I didn't have a good reason personally.
Good custom fodder though.

I haven’t, on account of not being able to find one, but because it’s basically a very plain body sculpt, so it’s good for headswaps, repaints, etc.

True... but the lack of articulation is a real downer.

Yeah. Swings and roundabouts, I suppose.
