Here's an odd thought. The Invasion of Time Leela figure might make a good base for a figure of Nyssa in her Terminus outfit. Just switch over some of the arm pieces from the Face of Evil Leela and mould a new head, PVC top and skirt piece and you'd have something that looks like Nyssa in that story. Just an odd idea I thought of.

Jokes on you, that's what I'm calling you from now on.

That's actually a pretty good idea. I mean it kind of comes down to only using existing legs, arms and pants, but since most of the new pieces are pvc bits, like on Talons Tom it wouldn't be a monstrously expensive undertaking. Quite a nice outfit, too, wouldn't be my first choice, but it is a very nice one.

Also, you could take the bottom half of the Peri figure and reuse it for a Season 20 Tegan. And if you put a new head on a James Lester figure like others have suggested, you could have a Turlough. Which means, combined, you could have an entire TARDIS crew with their costumes from Terminus.

Obviously this is still a pipe dream, but hey, as it reuses pre-exist parts it could be possible maybe...?

Or they could be REALLY lazy by taking a S2 cyberman and packaging it as a Cyber-Parallel-Jackie-Tyler.

Perhaps the pleasant surprise may be that we finally get the Wheel cyberman that has been craved by collectors, or an upscaled S7 cyberman from the 3.75" design.

It would be an odd mix, for sure, that's the most similar nyssa and tegan's outfits ever were to each other, aesthetically having a set with two companions both in white outfits that were similar in length would be kind of an unusual one, but I'd definitely get that if they made it.
