Any whispers about whether the other two B&M three packs are coming to the US or not?

WhoNA, I assume you'd tell us if you'd been solicited?

Not solicited, don't have any word.

We didn't move near enough to warrant any additional exclusives at this time.

Ugh. That's a shame. Too many leftover Pertwee packs?

Looking at the remaining numbers for the Third Doctor set you have 64 left which does not seem bad, then again I don't know how many you started with or if you have others not counted on the inventory the customers can see remaining.

I would hope that next year you might do a Second Doctor Set or a First Doctor set?

I hope they sell enough to justify the 3rd Doctor set, myself. Smile

I know it's technically exclusive, but will you reach a point where you sell any to other retailers?

I window shop a lot of web sites like Amazon / Amazon U.K. among others and I have not seen the Third Doctor set advertised by WHONA any where.  Perhaps if there was some more publicity it might spark some sales.

aside from the 64 you have listed, will there be more shipments received by Who North? And if so How many Units do you have to sell?

Indeed, I don't know how bad Amazon's deal is with 3rd-party sellers, but it would probably reach a bigger market if it was there.

And I know it's easy to play armchair marketing director here, when I don't have to do the legwork myself. Smile

I've seen WHONA on Flea Bay as well in years gone by. But this set I don't see popping up on line any where or even loose figures from it appearing. And I know places in the UK, Australia as well as people in New Zealand. This set is just not being promoted. I new about it from coming here to the forum for years and I saw it mentioned on a toy review site but other than that no promotion that I have seen any where

I actually listed some of the figs I didnt want from the new 13 Docs set, and after the 2nd Doc received a bid over 20 dollars I listed the red jacketed 3rd Doctor and he sold for $39.00!

I duly bought myself a second set from WhoNA to keep intact.

I am waiting for the statement on my pay pal smart connect to close out for the month on the      28th and then I am going to buy the 13 Doctors set from WHONA.  Assuming they have any left by that time, other wise I will go to flea bay and try and find those two specific figures (that I want the most out of the set)


But yes I need those 2 to display and a set to keep intact in the packaging

I've seen several reviews of the Third Doctor set on You Tube, listing it as a B&M exclusive in the main title, and some that mention that WhoNA also carries it, but I don't recall seeing a review mentioning WhoNA in the main title. Perhaps a review from a forum member may help promote sales, just a thought.

I was on flea bay till 3 am eastern after work this morning I looked threw over 800 figures that were listed for sale. I did see a few of the 12 Doctors sets offered for sale but none from WHONA and not a single set of The Third Doctor.


But I did se a few sets form late 2013 that I missed that I will be shelling out for if there still there on pay day

We have it listed on Ebay. Not certain what search terms you used, but the listing title is: Doctor Who 5" 3rd Dr, Jo Grant, and the Master Action Figures lot Exclusive Set

I think we only listed online an initial 300 of the 1200 units we received. I think I just added 100 units this morning.

At this time, we have avoided selling on Amazon (in the past) because so many of our suppliers have restrictions on Amazon (if we sell there, they will not supply us). Of course, this does not apply to an exclusive, so we can list that with no threat of penalty. We just have not done it in the past, so we're not really hip on it yet. I will research it, however.

I did see later on some stuff under your name instead of WHONA, I was concentrating on looking for The Third Doctor Set now I have seen it listed as being for sale in England and today I saw some on sale from Los Angeles.

I did notice you increased the variability amount this afternoon when I crawled out of bed.  Hopefully you have more stock of The Thirteen Doctors sets,  got to wait till my pay pal statement closes about 3 am on the 8th before I can grab that one, hopefully some more left that you have not listed of that one

That's good news, IMHO. I don't know what your suppliers' restrictions are, but Amazon is usually my second stop -- after WhoNA -- when I look for 5" figure sets.

I see so many 3rd party sellers there, I'm always surprised that WhoNA isn't representing, too.

Not to get "into the weeds" on this, but what's the difference on your end between Fulfillment by Amazon and the system that some other 3rd party sellers seem to use where Amazon takes the orders and they do the shipping themselves?

Just curious.
