As long as whoever takes over the license makes them in the same scale, I'd be fine with it. My fear is that a new company will either go 3'75 or 6'. Which honestly, is what CO should've done in the first place, but now that we've gotten such a diverse line I don't want to "start over" with a new series of figures, even if they end up being better quality.

I actually have a lot of the Primeval releases, I did not get them all but I got enough of them. With some tweaking some of them could be made into Dr. Who toys, notable the solders could be adampted into say UNIT or other troops

Haven't heard much about these for a while. Any idea when they might be coming? I think I had heard February at one point, but I think it was just a guy pondering.

This is our best info cobbled from a couple different threads.

Feb 2017 is when these are supposed to be available.

Right now, Underground Toys in the USA is attempting to find a retailer who will take this figure as an exclusive (over 5000 units). We can't do that quantity. We will have to wait to see what happens next.

I'm sure once the details are sorted there will be a post in the Quick Toy Announcement thread.

Doctor Who North America is a great source for Doctor Who I normaly would not mention this here, But one big store chain that has just went bankrupt and closed down was the Hastings store chain which was a large Doctor Who buyer to. We had 3 stores in Spokane and one in near by Couer D Alane. My big fear now is for C.O. looking for large quanitys of 5,000 of figures this will kill the numbers they are looking for. I'm sure this will have an effect on all Doctor Who items to.

Hastings had 1,493 stores so for them to put 2-3 figures in each of their stores was a big chunk. My fear this will kill the toy lines.

But, I have seen more DW figures in GameStop and Barnes and Noble, maybe that will help make up the difference?

According to UT on Twitter, this figure is no longer being produced.

What kind of "defect" would kill off the entire line?

I have never heard of anything like this happening before. I have heard of companies firing factories when a production hits a problem. But I have never heard of a company cashing in all the chips and canceling an entire project because of a factory problem.

Beginning to think that as well. Well for the classic range I was but now for NuWho too. Anyone know when the licence is up for renewal? Perhaps its time someone else had a go..

I would love a new company to come in, 3A or some such. But I want it to fit with the already existing figures. Sad times for 5 inch collectors.

Posted on my Facebook group by Booboo of the Dr Who site.
This info is only for the USA market at the moment, remember UGT USA didn't know the UK we're getting these they only know the USA market. The UK should still be getting them but very messy as UGT USA announced them

I now hope Capaldi stays on for many more seasons! I'd have a gap on my shelf if we get a new Doctor in series 11!

Another forum says otherwise.


"According to Booboo on thedoctorwhosite the tweet is incorrect and the figures are close to shipping over meaning they'll appear in the not too distant future on FP (if they are stocking them). That said, I don't know how he knows that but he has spoken about reliable contacts whom normally give him info."

Tried to paste the link, but, didn't work.

Yea Booboo from the Merchandise site posted this in my group on Facebook.

Seems the US may not get them. But whether the UK does, time will tell, always does.

I want The 12th Drs, so, it's depending on resources in the UK, which, I still can't get anything. Sad
