I can see the attraction for an active dad wink.gif but no,not for me Rad, I am wanting to like them but despite their obvious attractions they ain't for me ....I'll wait for the Minimates . To be fair I'm a fan of Dr.Who & enjoy the current shows but I'm not into the old stuff as much as some . Don't get me wrong I'm not dissing the old stuff but I wonder how much kids today relate to Pertwee's Who for example ?

Aahh... I like these too much. I hope they make a set of companions from the new series.

Army builder packs full stop! They look great too. I do think though, that 50.00 for the control room is a bit much considering the Control Room for the 6 inch figures is 40.00

I sure hope that Undreground Toys will announce the distribution of this series across the pond (like they already have with the plush line) at the New York Toy Fair.

I'm with BHM - I'd much rather wait for the Minimate rather than start collecting these. But I'm going to have to pick up the TARDIS & a set of Daleks anyway.

Boyd's Minimate Customs - The custom Minimate site that's collecting dust.

I'm not particularly going out of my way to be grumpy & contradictory but Underground Toys may not be involved with this which may negate them being sold in the US & Canada at all !!! The way I understand it is that UT has sole rights to distribute BBC based merchandise in the US (not the UK) ....if they can't foresee that they'll turn a profit on these then they'll pass. I really hope I'm wrong but with that shower anything is possible.

OH fun, I want that 11 doctors set & Tardis exterior unless it's insanely expensive & probably some weeping angels and dalek army builders too please.

I'm going to be looking for someone in the UK to hook me up should these ever see the light of day. Like BHM I have little to no faith in Underground Toys bring them across the (Amy) Pond.

p.s. Anyone else note they use a C3 tag ( Collectable, Createable, Compatible) too! smile.gif

From what the above link is saying these little guys are a go. First wave in Easter, 2nd in the Autumn. Great stuff! smile.gif

I'm really impressed by the scope of the line. The 11 doctors set is lovely, and a real collectors piece.

And army building packs straightaway - shows gumption and desire to do well.

I approve.
Come see the all-new, all-different Minimates Central!

So are these the official reason we never got Who Minimates? I like the look of the Daleks and Cybermen.. and I may have to get the 9th, 10th & 11th Doctor.. but I still wish they were minimates.

Well, I'm impressed. I think the main standout of this line, for me, is the 11 Doctors set. It looks fantastic and it's a nice surprise to see it so soon. I'd have figured they'd run with the 11th for a bit and then get around to the previous Doctors if the line did well.

I do like them, but I'm only going to want to pick up the TARDIS mini-set and maybe the 11 doctors set.

I didn't see it anywhere, but are these only going to be available in the UK or worldwide and at what stores......I may need some international help purchasing this set around Easter! wink.gif

I believe UT will be the only way we get these over here as I don't see anybody else (cause they can't, like you said) distributing them. I am truly hoping that they will see a profit and release them. This is me being extremely hopeful though.

I thought Underground Toys only released the 'Character' merchandise over here.
EDIT:Never mind BHM, I have researched and learned I am wrong.

I know QMX has a doctor who license for screen-accurate prop replicas, animated maquettes, travel posters and novelties which I am very much looking forward to.

Oh, you've gotta be kidding me! That 11 Doctors set is fanboy bait for sure! And Dalek army builders?! No fair! sad.gif

Not sure if I'd bite the bullet on these though. Still iffy on the size. If I started collecting Lego then maybe.

*But really I'm for anything that'll help Chuck see clearer and diversify the line even more, so that everyone will be happy. Also, I still want Inhumans even though DST said that might take take a while. Also also, I really do not understand DC's decision-making process sometimes. Also also also, the Book of Minimates needs to become a real thing. Also also also also, I'm still looking for Femme Fatales Minimates.

Wow, these are really cool! At the very least I am going to have to pick up the Tardis set for my Tom Baker custom, and possibly some Daleks to see if they work better with the minimate size than the electronic Daleks I have been using so far.

That inside of the TARDIS looks like crap. Sorry.

The only thing I'm interested in are the Daleks. The figures remind me too much of Playmobile or Duplos.

No, he's right -- not making that one character doomed the line. Doomed, I tell you. The minute we left him out of Series 1 a raven flew through our window. And killed an intern.

The 11 Doctors set probably wins out in terms of accessories. Just from the pictures alone, there'll be a bunch of screwdrivers and an umbrella. If Character duplicates the accessories that were included in the 5" 11th Doctor Set, then we should see a walking stick and recorder as well... although that's speculation on my part.

Either way, there'd be a good number of accessories that could be customized.
