I mean, I'd prefer companions, like Jamie (which looks way better than I anticipated with the "Roman" use). But if they cranked out any monsters/villains, I'd most want (within reason of B&M/current method/limits):

1960s
*A Voord (I'd take a foot inaccuracy)
*A Sensorite (ditto)
*The Monk
*A Perceptor Dalek
*A Mutant Scoop Dalek
*A Chameleon
*The War Lord
*1960s Time Lord

1980s
*Ainley Master, in best Velvets approximate (or Survival)
*The Black Guardian
*Raston Warrior Robot
*80s Sea Devil (Use the 2010 Silurian body with new wrap/head!)
*The Rani
*A Glass Dalek
*The Valeyard
* Haemovores
* The Great Old One

Yes I know I left out many popular/well known monsters (Yeti, Ice Lord, Kandyman) that would frankly require a new benchmark AGAIN for what these sets can have, or ones that could be feasible with wraps/heads (Dominators, Husks). Trying to balance feasible with "the fandom (and maybe even general public) would care". Just because we could make Arbitan, Kane, or Morgus doesn't mean we should. ;)

Yes, but they are a separate piece that can be removed, the Capaldi boots could work
True, but unless the mold is modular at the boots, they can't really be swapped out for something else.
I suppose they could retool the peg to fit.
My understanding is that it's less about the peg and more about the fact that a mold is designed to cast all of the parts of a figure at once, and they can't run all of the parts from two different molds and throw out the ones they're not going to use. The times where we've had different heads on old bodies has been when the molds themselves have been modified with the new heads, or the mold was designed to have different heads slotted in and out to begin with.

That's my understanding, anyway.

Yeah like there’s no way on Earth that Jamie could be made.

I still reckon the best bet is the Sharaz Jek/Axon body with a PVC kilt.

Hey, we're Doctor Who toy collectors. We've made lemonade out of less. :)

I think that Sharaz Jek is the most feasible option available for Jamie at the minute (though is the neck piece and the waist belt piece removable, or not?)

If not a better generic option would be the Axon Man; you could paint on the boots and socks as he has fairly skinny blank legs, paint the torso black to match his black turtleneck from MIND ROBBER and then add a wraparound kilt. If they're willing to do it for Benton or Yates surely it'd be just as easy/cheap to do for Jamie?

Aren't Sharaz Jek and the Axon man the same body? Jek just has some extra pieces over it.

That's what I was trying to ascertain. Didn't know if the extra pieces were removable or not as he appears to have moulded boots from the images I've seen.

Yeah, I'm honestly not sure.
