If there was to be a 13 companions (one per doctor) boxset of all new sculpts of unmade characters/outfits, what is the maximum you would spend? $250 US? $300???

The packaging would be similar to last year's 13 Doctors set...a "companion piece" if you will Wink

I'm sure you guys could make a better list than I, but for example:

Susan for First
Jamie for second
Liz for Third
Romana for Fourth
Adric for Fifth
Forbisher for Sixth
Melanie for seventh
Grace for Eighth
The Moment for War
Jackie Tyler for Ninth
Wilfred for Tenth
Clara (Time of the Doctor outfit) for Eleventh
Bill for Twelfth

I'd spend up to $300 if it went something like this:

Susan
Jamie
Sarah Jane or Liz
Romana II
Tegan
Peri (TOATL)
Mel
Grace
Rose (from Rose)
Donna (any new outfit)
Amy or Clara (any new outfit)
Bill

$250 feels about right.

What was the 13 Doctors box set... around $120, $130? I feel like my maximum would be between that $130 price and $150.

Of course, that's easy to say when I'm not looking at it and panicking with a "I have to have it!" collector's feeling... Smile

I would do $250 definitely for a set that included mostly unreleased companions.
1. Susan, 2. jamie, zoe, &victoria , 3. Liz, 4.Romana one and two, 5. Nyssa, Adric, and Teagan, 6. Mel, 8. Grace 12.Bill... So basically my 13 companions would be mostly classics...As that would make any Completest happy

Although honestly, if they released all of the companions seperate for $40.00 a piece then i would still buy every one of them...which would make the damage on my wallet $520.00 sooo I'm going to change it and say $520.00 for my wish list.

I wouldn't pay any more than the status quo on these...so up to $25 tops for a single or $125 for a 13 figure set. I don't care who's in it.

No way I'd pay much more for a 5" figure from a dead line, no matter how much I love the show.

IF it was truly ALL new sculpts, well-done, and nicely painted, then yeah, I'd pay $300, maybe even as high as $400 if I really liked all the figures.

On the other hand, it seems that CO relies (or at least seems to believe they must rely) on 'repaints' and reuses of pre-existing sculpts to make their sets profitable.  I'd say it's more reasonable to assume that at least 6 figures in any '13 companion' set would be re-issued/repainted figures. If THAT were the case, I'd be down to $150-200 range.

That said, here's what I'd like to see:
All-New:
-Susan from "An Unearthly Child" or "The Dalek Invasion of Earth"
-Jamie McCrimmon
-Sarah Jane Smith from "The Time Warrior" (only because I really want a Romana II figure to go with the fourth Doctor!)
-Romana II from "The Horns of Nimon" or "Destiny of the Daleks"
-Tegan (Flight attendant uniform, or her outfit from "Resurrection of the Daleks"
-Mel (Only because I feel 3 Peri's is enough)
-Ace from "Battlefield" or "Survival" (Only because Bernice Summerfield would be a longshot!)
-Grace (only because Charlotte Pollard and Lucy Miller are also longshots!)
-WAR DOCTOR - "The Moment" Rose
-Jackie Tyler (or a Rose resculpt)
-Wilfred Mott (or a resculpt of "Doctor Donna" from "Journey's End")
-Clara from "Day of the Doctor" or "Time of the Doctor"
-Bill

Honestly, I'd settle for a 'gap-filler' 3-pack companion set - a box that would give us companions for the the classic Doctors that don't have them yet:
Susan, Jamie, and Tegan. I'd pay up to $100 for that!

I agree with Seadevil. $125-$150 tops. And even then, I may pass, depending on who would be in it.
