When I first read that there were new Doctor Who figures I hoped that we would finally see Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who outfit. Sadly, it is only the regeneration figure, which has been done for previous Doctors. The sad part is that these figures are 3.75 inch figures and not even from Underground Toys. The BBC has signed a new deal with Character Options (check out their Doctor Who line here), they are not nearly as detailed, but will probably come with more vehicles and play sets than Underground’s 6 inch line.
The “new collection released in spring 2014 will include a Zygon, a brand newClara Oswald, Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor, a screaming Weeping Angel, an AssaultDalek, an Imperial Guard Dalek and, last but not least, the newly-regenerated Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi)”.
I like the idea of having figures that could spare with both Star Wars and the Marvel Universe line. I just hope that Underground Toys releases their new figures as well.
The photo below was released by the BBC and the figures debut at Toy Fair UK. Check out he Doctor Who merchandise that was revealed here. The International Toy Fair arrives in February in New York City. Mania will be in attendance.
