A Mutt, a Quark, the Fisher King and a Yeti? Oh damn, I'd have killed for any one of those beauties!

Poor Troughton; at least the Ice Warrior and Tomb Cybermen got a release or his era would be pretty underrepresented! Hartnell too really!

Why was Churchill quite so rotund? Obviously he was quite large irl, but even so...

Can I ask why the figure 'Destroyed Cassandra' was released and what was the reasoning behind it? It would have been cool if it came with a removable magnetic skin.

Not the Lurker, but I’m fairly sure it’s been mentioned that in the past, Woolworths wanted an exclusive figure and left it last minute to mention that... thus, Destroyed Cassandra. :lol:

I think it's based more on Ian McNeice's likeness. Obviously it's his head they used so I assumed that was the reasoning. Not sure why the legs were rotocast though. I think its been brought up before but I can't remember

Is the Absorbaloff off limits due to a rights issue? He would have been an obvious choice for a figure back in the day! There isn't a lot of Absorbaloff related merchandise.

I'd have assumed we never got him because he's from an unpopular story. I mean yeah, the hoix is also from that episode, but it didn't look like a green peter kay in a thong.

Eaglemoss have not done a Hoix figurine either. I personally love that story and think it's much better than most of Series 11!

That's good, I always like to think that every episode has to have at least someone who enjoys it
