Really glad that they're doing expansion packs as we had hoped!

I wonder if you will have to have purchased the original doll to get the expansion pack? It may be a way to save a little money to buy the Baker expansion with smiling face head and coat, them put it on one of the hot toys bodies you can pick up on ebay for $30.00.

You don't have to buy the original to buy expansions, I'm sure. It kind of sees that, with the current ones, you can buy two of them and make a pretty much complete figure if you have a body. Not totally sure the Hot Toys body and the BC heads are compatible though without customization. I haven't heard much talk about them yet, though, so they might be.

Tennant looks so great. The head sculpt is jaw-dropping. I wish the lapels weren't quite so puffy though.

Yeah, these are mostly brilliant, but the "tailoring" of the clothes is not up to Hot Toys level (maybe not even Sideshow's or Dragon's). It has a very "dollish" look on the figures and doesn't have the realism of the very-top-end stuff (which I imagine this is gonna be priced as). Some of the head paints look a teeny bit "rough" too, but that'll likely improve over time (and these are mostly prototypes, right)?.

I'm guessing they just might be using too heavy a fabric b/c of production realities. Hopefully these'll get better down the road. But for a brand new 1/6 company, this is pretty good.

Yeah, I'm confident that the finished product will look just fine. Just take Matt Smith's figure for example. Even though the prototype is as equally stunning, it looks even better now in comparison to the prototypes.

Not HT quality but I would say it is better than Sideshow's without a doubt.

I read a glowing review of the special signed 11 but I don't think I can post it because it has links to other retailers.

I've seen that the pre-orders for the 11th Doctor are shipping as of today.

(Not at WhoNA)

A competitor got theirs in stock today so I can only assume WhoNA should be getting theirs in soon as well.

A recent show had a card that said "December" but I wouldn't hold my breath as they had to retool her body because their old factory mesed it up.

Where I pre-ordered it still says it will be released on Dec 26th. That's good, I need to save more. I have enough for the 10th Doctor and about half way there for the 4th, but need to still save some more!

What is the ball-park SRP/RRP on these anyway? About $200?

I'm just trying to figure out how much money to save.

But they aren't sure if or when they are getting it. I'm sure they wouldn't want their loyal customers to go without even if it means going somewhere else to get it.

You don't agree that they should encourage their loyal customers to buy elsewhere if they aren't sure if they are getting a product? Isn't it about making sure your customer gets what they want? It isn't a case of buy it here or nowhere is it?

It's not really up for debate though is it. You can be obstinate and rude. Or you can adhere to the rules our gracious hosts have set.

I'm not looking to debate, I'm looking to make sure people are done right.

Then PM him the info. Or you can be obstinate and rude. You seem to be shooting for the latter, so suit yourself.
