WhoNA told us when these first came out that Underground Toys was being mischievous and trying to find an "exclusive" buyer for these figures in the USA. It would seem that they couldn't find anyone willing to take the gamble for this release. We know that WhoNA could only stretch as far as the 3rd Doc+Master+Jo set last summer when the three 3-packs came out in the UK.

But WhoNA has also ordered limited numbers of the Alternate Missy exclusives from the UK when we found out we weren't getting both varieties. So don't loose hope that WhoNA may be able to get a few of these newer figures this time.

In the meantime, how about buying another 3rd Doc+Master+Jo set?

"From Al Dewar .. yup the real one not the Autons who troll the forums
Folks,
Contrary to what you may have heard or seen on social media from 3rd parties regarding the cancellation of upcoming Doctor Who Action figures in regard to ‘Factory issues’, please be assured by me that the information given out was wholly incorrect and that an announcement regarding the release of these and other new merchandise is imminent via a CO UK press release.
Thats all i can and will say but be assured information is coming. Also, please do not bombard CO Customer Services with questions because A they won't have any more information and B they won't get anything before the official press release either so please wait patiently as it will be out very soon.
best
Al "

The U.K. Toyfair is before the end of January, (26th?) so I'm willing to bet the press release will be released before then. I wonder these will release like how Missy first did?

Glad to hear these are still coming! I am looking forward to replacing my 12th Doctor figure with one of these new ones, I think the headsculpt is much more convincing as Capaldi. Plus I prefer his thicker hair than the shorter sculpt we have. The whole baggy space hobo 2nd Doctor thing about the combination of the jacket and the hoodie just looks so Doctor-y, too!

They're being released in the UK, at least. Not so sure about the US.

That's what it said on the Facebook post. Higher most likely.

Last week, it was due to a "factory defect".

Either way, we've been told they're not coming.  But those are genuinely nice pictures of what we won't be getting.  Smile

I still want that 3.75" Dalek playset that's going for uber cheap in the UK. I told my friend I want the Capaldi's, so I'm going to have to constantly bug him, as I can't get anyone else to....

Life can be extremely scary and rough, but most of the times I've witnessed genuine miracles happening, it was on WHONA's watch. I am holding on to hope.
