I think the problem with a lot of tweaked figures... is that it won't sell as well.
The 11 Doctors set could get away with it easier... 'cuz it featured all Doctor figures (the central point of the series). If nothing else, fans might buy the 11 Doctors for Paul McGann's 8th Doctor... as well as a hat-less Sylvester, different coloured Jon, different sculpt of David, Peter with celery & Tom in his grey coat.
But with the companions, I don't see many people buying a set of 11 figures (with it's impressive price tag)... for one or two never-before released Companion figures. I think any companion set, to give it the biggest possible chance of being successful, needs to be comprised mostly of previously un-released companions. They might get away with one or two re-releases... but I have my doubts about a set that only features one or two new companions.
Besides... there's already 3 Leela and Peri figures. I think they've been done enough (I know I only want 1 of each of them)... and we need to see some other characters.

I can see both Peri's being in there or perhaps the Caves Peri and then the purple repaint, doubling as a companion for both 5 and 6...
It really does leave a lot to wonder how this would be done and if what we know is wrong about no Grace or no expanded media or no more Rose or Sarah figures?
