I found some pictures of the H.M. Armed Forces series:

Given the amount of Military we have seen in Doctor Who, these would make nice complimentary sets.

Did I mention that I am excited about this series and am too impatient to get my hands on them

A mate pointed out to me the other week that HM armed forces were getting the character building treatment.
This is great for me, my kid get's the soldiers and vehicles while I nick the blue hats for UNIT soldiers! wink.gif

First sets are up for order (might be pre-order though)

A Dalek Progenitor featuring Dalek Supreme and The Doctor, and a Tardis featuring The Doctor & Amy.
Very reasonably priced at 8.00 each. Woop Woop! (or should that be Vworp Vworp?)

In my enthusiasm to post I got it a little bit wrong. They're 8.99 from FP. RRP is 9.99.
I still think it's a good price though. Broadly comparable to Lego sets of a similar size.
I hope sell like hot cakes. Mini-figures are starting to become very popular in the mainstream.
I noticed yesterday in my local ChAvSDA that the box of Halo megabloks minifigures that was on display Friday was suddenly an empty box.

Thanks for the wicked awesome update Rad. I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on these sets. I just hope the other sets that were on display are released soon too.

Also, not CB related, the first North American 'Doctor Who Insider' Magazine was released yesterday in comic shops. I am on vacation, but am looking forward to it when I get home.

If they can get these out just as the new series hits, the timing will be perfect.

I like the look of those sets a lot, and will hopefully be relying on someone UKside to help me out.

Being this keen to get my hands on them feels kind of odd as I've pretty much given up collecting minimates, so perhaps I just need a new thrill for a while?

I'm sure this will be a good opportunity for any overseas peeps to call in a few favours from the UKers here. I know I would be happy to help too.

ForbiddenPlanet has put up the Time of the Angels mini set for order.

The blind packed minifigurines were up this morning (box of 36 or lot of 6), but they seem to have been taken down. I wonder if they reached their max number of boxes that could be ordered.

The 2 boxsets are in the LCS in Liverpool. I will prob pick up 3 of each tomorrow (1 of each already gonna be nabbed by my nephew)
So I will prob have 2 of each going spare. If no one wants I will keep 1 of each for myself.
After I get them I will take them to Post Office to try and work out postage and let ppl know. Only thing I do know is that they are 9.99 a set in store.
