The other site has the revisions on the 3 sets listed to ( I just got all 4 sets from the UK and I'm happy with them) it also lists the new 5.5 13th doctor figure is a Seven 20 not Character Options. I'm more keen on the classic figures. Thanks for the great info from Sir Prise. I was figuring that these last 4 sets were my last hurrah sets. I'm still holding out hope for the CO figures that they had prototypes done. 2nd Doctor in fur coat and the Abominable Snowman. No retooling I would think just sculpting done just painting (very wishful thinking on my part), here is to hopeing.

Sculpting is the cheapest part of a figure development. If the tooling hasn't been done for those figures, very low chances of those happening. A prototype doesn't mean that a production figure exists.

Thanks SirPrise my stupid question then for those 2 figures 2nd Doctor in the fur coat, and the Web of Fear Yeti have you heard were they just sculpts them, (sounds like we will never see these 2 figures, they were on my omg Doctor Who figure list). You never hear why things were not produced.

The furcoat 2nd Doctor was planned for a Legacy line that was planned, but cancelled because of lack of interest. There was supposed to be a duffle coat 7th doctor too and a few other figures I can't remember.

For the Yeti, the rumour is that because the picture of the unapproved sculpt was leaked during negociations with the rights holders, approval was refused and the Yeti can't be produced.

Also, it's a big figure, so much more expensive to produce, and I doubt the market is in a situation where it can support a big figure like that anymore.

So I bought Bill off Amazon UK and shipped to the US for less than $20.Sheís a good figure and will be the last of the series for me as I refuse to recognize Jodie as the Doctor and see no need to buy her figure to complete my Who collection.

There are no characters from this past season I would be excited for as figures. I liked the companions a lot but thatís it.

Regeneration please.

Knowest WhoNA got some hard to find figures
Pick up 11th in 10th suit figure. I needed that one to finish that serie off
I know WhoNA might not get any new figures but it would be great if they get more older figures. I been trying to collect more of the older figures for my collection

Found a few older figures.

We will get a handful of the UK figures (but not many, so act fast when you see them).

Does this mean you have a line on the B&M 3-packs? ...or just the 13th Doctor...

A few more 13th doctor figures arrived.

They can't get them to me in mint packaging condition if they tried.

It's not unusual to regenerate into Tom Jones.

Did that improve now? I see the option on the order page for Mint/Near Mint.

I miss the classic line so much. They were about a dozen figures shy of hitting all the key monsters.

If we could just get Ian, Barbara, Jamie, and classic Sarah Jane, I'd be ecstatic.

A couple of companions from each Doctor's tenure would be really nice... but I doubt it will ever happen. I'm glad we got Brig, Ace, Leela, Jo, and Peri. Susan, Jamie, Tegan would really help fill in the gaps for the classic era though. They even managed to release Bill for Capaldi!

I'm not sure which of the current companions I'd pick to represent Jodie's era. None of them really 'click' with me, given the unavoidable problem that they are three characters sharing 45-50 minutes of screen time each week.

We have a VERY tough time getting B&M exclusives (near impossible) at any reasonable price for resale purposes.

We have more of the 13th Doctor coming.

We continue to make efforts.

I know the first batch of 13 Doctor figures were all mangled because they packed loose figures poorly. Now we are getting case-packed products and they are arriving in very nice shape (most falling into mint/near-mint, with only a few with banged corners).

Thank you WhoNA, for trying! I would like to get that 4 & TARDIS set, even though I'm kind of wary of a price increase coupled with feature reduction (no sounds or lights).
