Re: USA Toy stock now available

So...... The latest rumour I've heard is that the US Amazon distributor won't be stocking the sets. I'm skeptical, as frankly.....it's business. And some of these are Dalek sets. Those seemed to move, and move well. Even if there was some hesitation for other stock/themes, those are same concept as...

Re: B&M doctor who sets.

I was quite sceptical about a Sensorites sets appeal - but after seeing the pic I think its different enough to appeal. Its bloomin gorgeous too!
And I'm sure a grey Dalek or too will be popular.

Re: Why did we not get......

I do wonder if classic consoles are feasible in the future if there is enough demand. If the demand for Classic Doctor Who is still strong enough that a retailer like B&M still has interest, and they run out of Tardises to release/re-release, the Console would be THE instant must-have for collector...

Re: Why did we not get......

I’d be more than happy with a non-electronic console (no walls, floor etc just the console) and in terms of construction it can simply be a set of plastic mouldings (with no moving parts) that have some colours applied to the buttons etc, and those parts snap together to form the base that you then...

Re: Why did we not get......

Also, in case anyone has an answer to my half rhetorical question before - Anyone know why the Bessie prototype for Character stopped at "prototype"? Love some other sets we've gotten, it seems a shoo in before, say, the Fendahl. (Also, it's a rare "vehicle" toy that would've done "vehicle" things....

the monsters in the dapol range were really pretty good, all things considered. Like a lot of them were a bit weirdly tall and thin, but in terms of sculpts there was some very nice stuff, I heard the melkur was particularly nice.

Re: Why did we not get......

Hopefully answers to questions like - why did we not get a 6 sided console, and why did we not get a one armed Davros maybe covered in this months DWM https://merchandise.thedoctorwhosite.co.uk/doctor-who-magazine-issue-565/comment-page-1/#comment-627076 I think the answer to the former is that JNT...

Re: Why did we not get......

Something else which didn't help with the 3.75" range was the declining popularity of Who (both actual and media perceived). It was 8 years old by then. This is the situation now with the lack of new figures. No matter what you think of the Doctors, writer etc programmes do lose popularity with the ...
