If someone could PM me the list I'd be grateful.
Could you PM me the list too, if nobody’ll post it.
It's on the Dr Who merchandise website.
Ah! Thank you.

Can you imagine if the UNIT Zygon set came with The Brig in his kilt! :lol:

I feel defeated on your behalf, Al.
The first leak must have really gutted you, but now a second leak? And with the same people who revealed the contents of the first wave of the sets supposedly revealing the second load of variants... man. It’s a real sucker punch.
That said, it’s such a wholly fantastic reaction in a way, that everyone is still happy with the sets and that people are hyped and excited again.
...
...
...
Which gets me thinking.

Would there truly be no open doorway to a future where you put out say... 6 sets, and people can choose 3 sets, for example?
Say you came to us and said “look, we’ll be honest and open you guys up the process this year, as you’re the customers. We can produce 3 sets, but we’ve mocked up 6 sets to give you guys the choice. Characters can’t be swapped around in the sets, and decisions are final, with items and accessories and sculpts subject to change. You can have (I’m just spitballing):
• Historical Friends of the Doctor
1X Agatha Christie
1X Charles Dickens
1X William Shakespeare

• Companions of the 8th Doctor set
1X Molly O’Sullivan (using Novice Hame base)
1X Lucie Miller (using Primeval base)
1X Kroton

• UNIT through the Ages set
1X Liz Shaw (using Jo Grant bod)
1X Older Brigadier (w/greying hair and wrinkles)
1X Martha Jones in Combats

• The Tenth Planet set
1X Polly (Jo Grant bod)
1X Ben (using Mickey bod)
1X The 1st Doctor (using Hartnell bod with new Bradley head)

• Wheel in Space set
1X The 2nd Doctor
1X Zoe (using Martha Jones bod)
1X WiS Cyberman (with new Head)

• Friends and Foe of the 4th Doctor set
1X Sarah Jane from Ark in space (using Martha Jones bod)
1X Raston Warrior Robot (using generic male body like Acon Male/Sharaz Jek bod)
1X Romana 1 from Power of Kroll (using Silurian general restac bod)

• The Empty Child set
1X Empty Child
1X Gas Mask soldier (using Captain Jack bod)
1X Doctor Constantine w/ swappable head and cane (always useful for customs!)

• Genesis of the Daleks set
1 X Nyder (using new wrap on 12th Doctor instead of coat? Or maybe Generic male body like Axon or Sharaz Jek)
1X Gas Mask soldier w/ primeval gun (painted in Camo, using captain jack bod, rescuing Gas Mask soldier from Empty Child)
Now, pick 3, or put it to a vote.
1X Sarah Jane (rereleased with different or more specific paint apps like Brig was rereleased for Axos UNIT 1971 set)

The winners get commissioned, and the others can be filtered down into next years potential sets. This way, releases can be sure to be sold (not that there’s any doubt), and people can think ahead with money and know what’s coming and be more excited about it. Don’t get me wrong, I like the surprise, but now I know what’s coming, I’m even more hyped than if I didn’t know what the interim wave was going to be.
Furthermore, we can see what sculpts are going where, so we know we could help you guys out in a way by picking two sets that re-use a similar body (like the Sarah Jane Ark in Space and Zoe from Wheel in Space) like with Yaz/Romana 1 this year! Keeping production costs down and profits higher for you guys!

There’s only a part of me that’s slightly annoyed as I’ve had absolute terror trying to get ONE set over the last few days so as much as I would want some of these I really cannot be bothered with the hassle of trying to track them down again. I mean I STILL haven’t got the set I’m looking for and so far seem to be the only one on the forum who’s really struggled this year
Don't worry, I'm still waiting on getting anything, and I'm looking for everything.

I know that it's perhaps a little unrealistic, but imagine if friends and foe of the 13th doctor 2 was a completely different selection of figures, imagine if it was ruthdoc, jack and dhawan master. Wouldn't that be exciting?

Ditto; I've found none of the new sets in any of the Sheffield stores yet. I've asked F&F in other areas to keep a look out for me...

Jack is the ONLY realistic thing I could see as it's a reissue/reuse. And honestly, not a bad idea....

...if it wasn't "Friends and FOE of 13". ;)

Probably just paint variants.

Just to clarify, "Amazon Sets" refers to where these would be sold in the US, in the UK these would be B&M sets, excluding the single carded blue top 13th Doctor which will seemingly be a US exclusive.
Yes, it came out later these were going to be B&M in the UK so now we can continue this on B&M sets this can be closed, locked or deleted or whatever Mods can do.

Maybe paint variants and the Judoon captain for variety's sake?

Or it could be something else entirely, but hey, Al's gotta have some secrets to keep after what happened.
