Al said no Master until next year even if they did one, and no more teasers or photographs on GB or Twitter.
Al's great. Although "even if (they) did one"? That's a tad ominous, particularly on the Yaz & Ryan front.

Any other reveals for this year before he cut us off? I'm not on GB, and I'm pretty sure a chunk of this forum isn't either.

:(

Something always happens to spoil Al's good time.

Al can't post any more teasers on GB.

Just so everyone knows.
I cropped a wee bit off the bottom because it wouldn't fit 100% but it wasn't anything to do with the thing.

Thank you!!!! Much appreciated. And, everything we're getting this year (confirmed new series/B & M 2020) is more than good enough with or without teasers. Al's still cool in my book.

They’ll fall into the same trap, producing things far too late to be relevant and it’ll result in bad sales

In fairness, from the sound of it the BBC are the ones dragging feet/not clearing more. I'm just hoping we see the series 12 stuff this month/February. Later than that, it really will kneecap sales it'd have had with a series on TV.

Character/Al turned retreads into gold/new sculpts with B&M, so I can't fault their plans. They're clearly doing something right.

Argh! Marketing control freaks on the BBC side!

As thought *not* having Al leak things to the toy-buying fanbase will somehow result in better sales and better "brand perception" -- or whatever marketing jargon they use.

They don't care if someone's doing good work, they just want everything under their control.

Hi chaps ... Al here

Having already got myself into hot water on social media with the licensor I’m keen to avoid any more... so two things

First no action figure line or wave has EVER been linked to the Success or otherwise of the TV series and certainly not the ratings. CO has the license and as and when retailers ask for product or there is an opportunity to create more they will. It would be wrong to assume anything else. The product is created way ahead of transmission anyway so its a redundant theory. Its purely down to the market and demand.

The ratings comment was my ‘personal’ one that there had been a dip according to various sources and review sites and if true i hope it will reverse.

Second, in reference to the first line above can you please delete the images of my Gallifrey Base postings please ... its exactly this kind of posting on and reposting that has now made it impossible to pass you the collectors any fun tidbits or information ... By all means talk about it but posting images is an issue for me.

Thanks to you all in advance

Al
