Interesting, the Cyberman looks the same between the B&W and color versions. So how does one tell which version they've purchased?

Why does Troughton's recorder look like it's got something on the end of it?

The Doctor figure will be all colourful if you've bought the colour version. (Plus, look closely; the B&W and the Colour Trough have slightly different hairstyles).

Because it does have something on the end of it. The tassel.

Very nice indeed. A Tad expensive - but at least you're getting two figures for your dosh. I don't think I could justify £15 plus quid for a 6th in a change of coat colour though.

Indeed. Though I definitely prefer the Big Finish look to his usual coat.

Agreed. I really like this classic series range. It has so much potential.

I predict Delgardo/Beevers/Ainsley Master figures will be the next announced releases.

Oh, and a classic series Tardis playset.

The many faces of the Master, that would be good. I'd love to see a classic console room playset, sounds like the perfect release for Christmas time.

I've already ordered the colour versions of the first and second Doctors - just in case they never come out singly. The Dalek and Cyberman will be going straight onto eBay in an attempt to lessen the cost, mind.

I knew buying that fifth Doctor figure was a bad idea... Smile

Well it appears the range is selling much better than anticipated. Seems as if the kids, and not just the die-hard older fans, are showing interest in the classic Doctors.

Which is a very good thing indeed.

Excellent Grumpy Old Git character, Sid. Rather reminds me of Dana Carvey's "Grumpy Old Man" from Saturday Night Live.

When I was growing up, I had one specialty comics retailer in downtown Colorado Springs from which I could obtain Who-themed merchandise. I remember buying this really cool Doctor Who board game. In fact, I think my parents may still have it in a box in their garage.

I'm pretty certain we both owned the same game, old man.

That's the only place I ever saw any DW merchandise as a kid, comic shops. Everywhere else, popularity on the local NJN station or no, pretty much had no idea what Doctor Who was.

Where is wave 2 of the Classic Series toys?

As for me, growing up I had to go an hour out of town to the comics shop in the State Capitol to find DW merch. The only thing we got was a crap plastic sonic screwdriver that cost an outrageous amount and didn't quite size to scale. Needless to say I never bought it. Still, I did buy a few records (back when music still came on vinyl discs).

Got the Cyberman set yesterday, and they're all lovely. My only real beef is that the Invasion one has no articulation in his neck.

Well, my camera isn't working at the moment, but you can see them all here:

http://comicjunkies.com/Img/toypick_008.jpg

If you look closely, the Tomb Cyberman comes with 2 Cybermats - one also from Tomb, shown sat in his hand, and a Wheel in Space one, seen in front of him. They're by far the coolest accessories I've seen with any figure yet.

And the Cyber-Controller (for those not in the know) comes in seperate parts, each sold with the other figures - so it's effectively 5 for the price of 4,
