PostSubject: Game: Design the next companion release sets UT/CO style   Sat Jun 25, 2011 2:56 pm

Here's the game:

Design the next six-or-so companion release sets, IN A STYLE FRIENDLY TO CO/UT RELEASE PATTERNS.

That is to say, the companion MUST come with a figure that is from an existing mold, either re-painted or slightly modified. (Like a new head or a slightly modded body.) OR it may contain a new zero-articulation figure that could be blow-molded like Sil was.

So...

Leela with "Robot of Death" - OK
Leela with "Invasion of Time" Sontaran (old body, new head) - OK
Leela with unarticulated chew-toy Fendahleen - OK
Leela with gray painted K9 - OK
Leela with Panopticon Guard Andred - NOT OK


And do the next half-dozen or so. Don't try to do one for EVERY LAST COMPANION. (I mean, seriously.)

NOW HAVE AT IT!


(I must be avoiding work, because this is the fourth thread I've started in 24 hours.)

The easy way to do it is put the companions with their respective Docs, since we already have at least one of each incarnation.

Then for Docs that have had regen figures made, pack them with the companions that were present during the regen scene.

After that, if you want to do companion parings with baddies-

Jaime/ Victoria / Zoe with an Ice Warrior, then re-release later on down the road with an Ice Lord

Jaime or Victoria with a Tomb Cybie.

Zoe/ Jaime with an Invasion Cybie.

-----
Jo with Sea Devil, Jo with Master, Jo with Dalek
-----
Sarah Jane with Sontaran, Morbius, and Revenge Cybie
-----
Leela with Voc, Sontaran, K9, and Magnus Greel
-----
Nyssa with Skeletor Master, Tremas with Ainley head, Earthshock Cybie
-----
Ace with Imperial Dalek, SW Dalek, Silver Nemesis Cybie

My suggestions would be:

Sarah Jane Smith & 3rd Doctor from "Planet of Spiders"
3rd Doc with open jacket and a vest, with an attachable spider and blue crystal.

Jo Grant & a Sea Devil from "Sea Devils"

Romana II with 4th Doctor from "City of Death"
4th Doc with painted open vest and repainted S18 scarf and a "Fake" Mona Lisa.

Zoe and a Cyberman from "Wheels in Space"

Leela and D84 Voc Robot

Ace with a Cyberman from "Silver Nemesis"

OK, after some thought, here are my six:

- Ace with Special Weapons Dalek
- Pink Peri with "Attack" Cybercontroller (regular Cyberbody with modified head)
- Pink Romana II with bomb-laden "Destiny" Dalek
- Brown Suit Leela with blow-mold Fendahleen (yes, I know she wore the tan suit in that story)
- Season-12 Sarah Jane Smith with "Revenge" Cyberman
- Brigadier with gold "Day of..." Dalek


(And my "Wave II," even thought I said not to...)
- Harry Sullivan with "Revenge" Cyberleader
- Jo Grant with Reverend-Collar Delgado Master and blow-mold Bok form "The Daemons"
- Zoe with blow-mold Emperor Dalek from "Evil of the Daleks"
- Jamie with Ice Warrior
- Susan with "Dead Planet" Dalek
- Purple Tegan with blow-mold Mara snake

Maybe they will release a Brigadier w. Invasion cyber as the cybe was a figure many people couldn't find easily... This way they can re-use the brig as colonel lethnridge Stewart later on... Wouldn't need much tweaking and he could then be paired w the yeti we saw sculpted...

I would love a romana II figure paired with a Meglos Tom... Face and hands would need some tweaking but the figure for Meglos is essentially done...

I also thought they could do a Sarah Jane from android invasion... Pack two heads so she can also serve as the android version... I'd buy two to have both represented...

My ultimate twopack would be a sontaran (the helmet can even be permanently affixed like the new series) with a rutan - call it the Sontaran war set or something... If painted well the rutan cold be rotocast

Time to procrastinate at the office. Tough to do with so few good Classic monsters.

Susan + 1st Doctor (skull version) or yet another Dalek
Barbara + Dalek (dead planet)
Ian + Dalek (chase or DIO)
Sarah Kingdom + Dalek (masterplan)
Polly or Ben + Tenth Planet cyberman

Vicki, Steven, Katrina, Dodo, Polly, Ben don't really have a good enemy to pair with. Need some Mechanoids, Toymaker, Fish People, Drahvins, Chumblies, Faceless Ones, Macra, etc.

Jamie + Yeti (don't we know it's already sculpted?) or Tomb Cyberman
Victoria + Ice Warrior
Zoe + Invasion Cyberman
Liz + 3rd Doctor with season 7 hair
Jo Grant + Sea Devil (or Master as Adjudicator or Naval Officer)
Brig + Dalek (Gold Day version)
Sgt. Benton + K-1 Giant Robot (or more likely Zygon)
Cpt Yates + Axon
Sarah Jane + Linx or Gold Mummy and 3rd jar
Harry + Revenge Cyberman
Leela + Voc Robot
Romana I + blow-mold Stone of Blood
Romana II + Destiny suicide dalek
Adric + Earthshock cyberman
Nyssa + Regen 5th? (Ainley in proper costume is breaking rules)
Tegan (stewardess) + Ressurection Dalek (doesn't make sense but few choices)
Turlough + 5th Doc in proper Planet of Fire vest
Drathro + Peri repaint
Mel + Trial 6th Doctor
Ace + Special Weapons Dalek
Grace + 8th Doctor re-issue (need an excuse for the 8th Doctor outside the 11 Set)

Darn that was hard. Yeah, each companion could just come with their Doctor but that gets boring. Obviously we need more Classic monsters and the pairings could be much better. Tractators, Sea Devil warriors, Ancient One, Destroyer, any variety of Omega, Timelords, Vervoid, Valeyard, Glitz, a whole series of red-blue-yellow Kangs! Okay, maybe not that last one.

I love this game!

Here's an idea that fans of the Pertwee era may like. Make a UNIT trooper, then release that as an army builder in two packs of UNIT officers or monsters from that era.

Brigadier & UNIT Trooper
Sgt. Benton & UNIT Trooper
Capt. Yates & UNIT Trooper
Silurian & UNIT Trooper
Ogron & UNIT Trooper

Depending on the uniform types, they might be able interchange some of the 'uniform' body parts of Brig, Benton, and Yates.

Then release companions that could re-use some of the monsters.
Liz Shaw & Silurian
Jo Grant & Ogron

Okay... I'm having a rethink on this... and I'm going backwards.

Instead of thinking of companions, I'm trying to think which monsters could reasonably cast in the blow-mold/rotocast method, like Sil

was. Here's what I've come up with.

Companion figures with blow-mold/rotocast monsters:

Steven & Mechanoid "The Chase"
Victoria (or Jamie) & Emperor Dalek "The Evil of the Daleks"
Zoe & White Robot (or Toy Soldier) from "The Mind Robber"
Brigadier & Gel Guard "The Three Doctors"
Jo & Drashig "Carnival of Monsters" (I know it couldn't reasonably be to scale, but could still be cool.)
Sarah Jane Smith w/ Alpha Centauri "The Monster of Peladon"
Leela (brown leathers) & Fendahl Slug "Image of the Fendahl"
Tegan (stewardess uniform) & coiled 'Mara' snake "Kinda"
Nyssa & Terrileptil "The Visitation"
Turlough & Tractator/Gravis "Frontios"

One could argue that a Time Lord and Yeti could easily be rotocast figures, but I think I'd prefer these to be proper, poseable figures.

Hmmm... Are you really suggesting rotocasting the Terrileptil and the "Mind Robber" robot?

This is brilliant, actually.

2nd Doctor (repaint) and Jamie
3rd Doctor from Planet of the Daleks and Jo
4th Doctor from Destiny with new scarf and Romana
2nd Doctor (repaint) and Jamie from The Two Doctors
3rd Doctor from the 3 Doctors and Jo
4th Doctor from City of Death with "This is a fake" canvas and Romana

If Bessie counted as a companion another set could be:

3rd Doctor repaint, 4th Doctor repaint, 7th Doctor rerelease and Bessie

I do wish there would be an exclusive wave 11.99 a figure each with a part of a classic console one part with electrical time rotor. Preferably a Pertwee console as then they would have an excuse for no console room.
