Thank goodness the Primeval figures weren’t 3.75” :D
13s companions would have been tiny!

Or nonexistent. :shock:

This would've had a knock on effect on Bill, Rory, and um, Marcus Scarman too. Seriously, I think they would've figured out some solutions (Figures like Mickey, River, Toby, S2 Rose, Martha, various Sarah Janes, The Brigadier, and Clara almost certainly being involved.) But yeah, Primeval's weird legacy with this line is a strange epilogue to its onscreen rivalry with Who.

And it keeps on giving with Turlough up next in the 5 Doctors pack.

if I were making a turlough from an existing figure I'd use the scarman body, the tie and collar are a closer match, and it would show off his waistcoat. Though that figure is just a redress of a primevaler I think. Mind you, the thing I think of when I imagine turlough is him looking over his shoulder suspiciously and buttoning up his jacket, so an open jacket maybe would lose that feeling a little, who knows.

You would just need to have the companions much closer to your eyes than 13, have her off in the distance

or stand them all together but pretend that the small ones are far away, that would also help make the actual 3.75" figures be in scale

Turlough didn't wear a waistcoat though.........

To add my 2 Cents to ScaleGate:

Like everyone else, I love love the 5.5" range because the figures look amazing and I'd already spent way too much to switch to another scale. Having said that, though, as a kid it would have been brilliant to have Doctor Who figures in scale with all the other 3.75" toys. I remember playing with the Dapol 3.75" figures alongside my G.I. Joe and Star Wars figures for many, many happy hours as a kid. These days we have 3.75" figures of everything from Back to the Future to Mötorhead thanks to the Super 7 ReAction line. What a glorious adventure that would have been!

It bothered me that my 3.75" Dapol 7th Doctor could never interact with my Playmates Star Trek figures because they were the wrong size. It would have looked... just... wrong. And there's only so many times you can re-hash the rather thin plot from Planet of Giants. It seems odd now I think about it, not wanting to play with toys together because they are slightly different sizes. Are all kids like that?
The Dapol figures, like the A Team figures and others of their era were officially 4" scale. they don't fit with CO 3.75" range either!
