I wasn't intending to get these; I don't really have any more room for toys, but I've so far got the Zygon, D84, Magnus Greel and Mr Sin. They're brilliant. I've wanted a toy Zygon since I was a sprog.

Went to Forbidden Planet today and got the missing ones. The Colin Baker was the last one in the shop.

So, I've been thinking about buying the Doctor figures*. What's this someone told me about a new 'more like the Classic toys' Ninth Doctor figure? And what Tenth Doctor figure should I go for**?

I went to Forbidden Planet a couple of weeks ago and they were asking £17.99 for the Colin figure and £12.99 for the Peter Davison one. Then I went to Toys R Us in Wakefield last night and got the Colin, Tom and Peter figures for £7.99 each. Up yours FP. Razz

That's pretty crappy of them. My Colin Baker was the regular price.

And I'm most amused by all the people in the Toys section of OG complaining about the lack of CBs in London. I like mine Razz.

No idea about the new Eccleston. The only variant I know of is the green jumper-ed one that came out at ComicCon.

As for Tennant, mine is the brown suit/trenchcoat one, with sonic screwdriver, that came with my R/C K9. You can get him singly, but without the sonic. If you want a blue suited one w/sonic, your best bet is the Daleks in Manhattan set.

There definitely going to be a second wave? Most excellent!

Apparently so, and lined up for a January release, if what I remember of my occasional forays into the Toys and Merchandise section is right. Line-up is:

Spoiler:
7th Doctor
8th Doctor
Tenth Planet Cyberman
Ice Warrior
Mummy (Pyramids of Mars)
Morbius Monster
Voc Robot (with choice of numbered decals)

..and the build-a-figure this time is rumoured to be the Krynoid.

Last time I was in the Toys section of DWF, they were saying it's rumoured that
Spoiler:
the Tenth Planet Cyberman

might have been pulled for some reason and replaced by
Spoiler:
the Deadly Assassin Master.

Well, I bought a Fifth Doctor in town yesterday, and then later remembered I actually had a Tenth Doctor already (I'd bought the Utopia set from Home Bargains, put it on top of my wardrobe, and forgot about it. As I also did with a noisy TARDIS for him...), so I'm doomed.

I have to say, that electronic 'makes-all-the-noises-and-lights' TARDIS is bloody fantastic. Miles better than the 'make-Doctor-Who-'disappear'-by-twisting-the-middle-bit-round-by-the-lamp' one I had as a kid...

So is everyone aware of the upcoming Cyber wave?

I'm not the biggest Cyberfan so won't be getting them all, but that 10th Planet Cyberman is so sweet I'll have to get one. Of course, this means he's out of Classic Wave 2 and his replacement is rumoured to be a Decayed Master. CO, however, are still refusing to confirm they'll actually release Wave 2 unfortunately. Grrr.

I will, naturally, be getting all these, but they're going to have to get in the queue behind the E-Space DVD set.

DVDs are always higher priority...

Actually I tend to place DVD releases on a slightly lower scale. They'll always be relatively easy to pick up later - but for certain of these figures that isn't always the case.

Of course, the last thing I should be doing right now is actively adding to what I already have. But I can't help it - I plead collectoritis. Wink

It's all rooted in ease of availabilty for me - it's far more likely that DVDs will be out in the shops in Worthing than figures will be, so less likely that I can pretend they don't exist...

Fair point. I suppose being in a large city with plenty of easy access and availability when it comes to DVDs does make a difference. Conversely though, the figures do tend to vanish rather more quickly due to the high numbers of collectors/kids/desperate parents of kids ruthlessly hunting them down.

That's it. It was a good 6 or 7 weeks between the release of the last wave and my local pusher of TV-related crap memorabilia supplier finally getting them in, and it was only then that i got into "Must have them now" mode. Whereas DVD are available pretty much everywhere.

Except Lancing, of course, now we don't have a Woolies...

Poor Woolies. Another huge chunk of our collective childhoods ripped away. I was with my mum in Church Street Woolies in 1964, when she bought me the, then newly released, Louis Marx Bump and Go Dalek.

It was black. It was sensational. It was mine. Sad
