Hmmm... If WhoNA hasn't even been solicited for the other B&M three-packs by this point, I'm guessing UT isn't distributing them.

That is correct.  WhoNA is only getting the Third Doctor 3-Pack.  You can pre-order the set now!  http://www.whona.com/PRE-ORDER-5-3rd-Doctor-Jo-Grant-and-the-Master-Figure-Set-Price-includes-Domestic-USA-Shipping_p_5509.html

The discussion is buried somewhere in the wild speculation thread.

Yeah, I did know about the 3rd Doctor set, and I've already ordered one, myself. Smile

I was just speculating on the remaining two B&M sets. WhoNA said they weren't sure of UT was going to be picking them up, and seeing how we haven't heard a thing, I'm wondering if they passed.

All pre-orders have shipped.

The item is now listed for general sale.

We have some of these listed on Ebay as well, which may help with some of the international customers (Ebay's global shipping program may provide some savings to certain parts of the world).

I received my set this morning. This is a very nice set of figures. There are no accessories included, however. The Master does indeed look like he has been to the beach with a nice tan. I'll be putting him up on ebay soon, as I do have him already.

Nice upgrade! As soon as I spotted the pic, I dug out my Bracewell figure I bought for custom fodder. Still waiting patiently for the mailman to deliver my set.. bounce

..and I just got it at 3:30, thank you WhoNA! A very nice set, and the Tardis Key is a cool bonus! Very Happy

Winter, I have to ask, when you do a custom like that, do you have to crack the torso open to do the arm swap?

I got mine today. A nice set of Doctor, Jo and The Master. I don't recognize Jo's outfit. Which story is it from?

Yes, I used the boil and pop method.

Now we just need a Kronos figure in a new Enemies of the 3rd Doctor set and we can all relive the excitement of that story.

Good afternoon, all! Had a couple of questions:

Firstly: Is the Jo Grant in this three pack supposed to be the "smiley" face (from the first "Three Doctors" figure) or the "serious" face (from the second "Claws of Axos" figure)? I only ask because all of the pictures I have seen so far (with the exception of Winter's short-sleeve mod above) have had the "serious face."

However, I received my three-pack today, and...she's all smiles!



Do both exist? Does the UK get serious and we get smiles? Is serious just a prototype/promo image, but smiling is the production? Thoughts? Please share what YOU received from WhoNA...or elsewhere.

Secondly: I read a claim on this board that the Master figure that comes with this three-pack features a costume which is a different shade of gray/black than the original. Could someone post a comparison picture? I would compare my own two, except that this is the set I got:



No complaints--I'm actually quite amused! Smile I just may have to buy a second set if a) I need a new, differently-shaded Master, and b) if there is indeed an available "serious" Jo from "The Time Warrior."

All info appreciated!

Kevin

It appears to be random, some have the smiley face, and some have the serious face!

I don't think that the Master is a deliberate variant, but more of a side effect of this particular version being produced several years after the original, resulting in minor cosmetic differences.

Ironically, in the end it may be easeier for those in the US to get hold of these sets than those in the UK, because you can order them online.

The shop that sells them in the UK is not a major countrywide store, and it does sell sell anything online.

So you have to find if there is a store relatively near to you, and then hope that they actually have a set available when you get there!

It seems as though a lot of people are having to turn to eBay for these, at highly exaggerated costs!

@Mirrorspock, The Master looks almost identical. Only he is sporting a skin tone that is a little darker and he appears to be missing his white splotches in his mustache. I had to add them in on mine. Also his abdomen is a little more slick or shiney than the original. I would post a side by side but alas ive customized both of mine. The Jo Grants I recieved both had serious faces but the head sculpt is exactly the same as the original. It's just in how they applied the paint on the lips. I preferred the smile so I added more lip color at an upward angle. Also I used the arms from that blonde maid character in the 10th doctors companion set to give her short sleves. Had to drill a quarter inch of plastic out to make a peg hole. I will paint the sleeves once I pick up some yellow and light green paint.
