I know that "Talons" 4th Doctor is really just Tom Baker's head on a Pertwee body, but I'd still likely grab it up along with another Brig variation and another Auton.

And you really can't have too many TARDIS repaints.

Would absolutely get the 3rd and 4th Doctor sets. †Dying for more classic figures, Character Options!!!

And if that's the only way to get the Bill figure, I'd get the 12th Doctor set as well but I have no use for a Missy. †Neutral

Definitely interested in the Pertwee TARDIS and the Tom Baker 3-pack. I wonder if there's a way to customize the Tom so it's more accurate. Still, it's a decent looking figure. Just needs the hat.

As someone who can't/is no good at making figures
I would definitely get the Tom Baker figure.

From one of my favorite youtube reviewers who does review Doctor Who figures regarding these "new" ones

"No, seriously these are BAD. Most are repaints, the 3rd Doctors TARDIS is non electronic and Bills body has been re-used from an old Primeval figure. Stop funding crap like this and demand more from your figures, these are not worth your time."

I have to agree these look kinda shoddy

But they are better than NOTHING.

At least it's some kind of stab at classic figures.

Yes, something is better than nothing. It's not like other companies don't reuse parts and update paint jobs to release "all new" figures.

Which is exactly what we would get if we followed that YouTuber's advice.

We just have to face facts that this is a 'mature' product line (i.e. not in that it's for adult collectors, but rather that the product line has a lot of 'age' on it), and toy stores aren't buying it any more (and haven't for quite some time). It's a wonder we're getting anything at all, to be honest.

The only way we can "demand" more from our figures is by buying tens of thousands of them so it's economically viable to make more and better ones.

Buying none of them will mean the company will give up on making them completely.

If that YouTube reviewer has the money to buy about 50,000 figures, I suggest he do it.

p.s. I have no idea if the B&M sets are distributed to the US, but WhoNA is my first place to check, and the first place to get my money if they do.

WhoNA has been able to get at least some of these B&M sets in the past I think. †Like this one here: †4th Doc, Master, Voc

Those past sets have been mainly straight-up re-issues. †No real swapped parts and nearly identical paint applications. There have been a couple other sets WhoNA hasn't been able to get. †

Are these sets full of re-paints and swapped body parts? †Sure, but at least they are not all straight re-issues of figures we already have. †Someone has at least tried to mix and match to make something new out of it. †Missy may be a straight re-issue, but at least comes with the Bill Potts new headsculpt (on an old body). Not the greatest wave of figures we've ever seen, but there are a few sets here I'm willing to get if WhoNA stocks them.

Boy, that Brig body they selected is cheating, but I still find it oddly intriguing and desirable. †The ascot instead of necktie, shoes instead of boots; at least it's not a Cyberman with a nose.

Yeah, squishy...looks like they just tweaked that Auton to make him.

oh...and Oswin is a straight re-packaging. She was in the "Impossible Set"

Yes, quite clever how they did the Fourth Doctor set. I can't wait to own it so I can pair up that Brigadier with the original release Captain Jack! I am really glad to get Bill Potts. I recognized the Primeval character with a new head. I am pleased that any attempt was made!
