Sooo much new Doctor Who stuff in the works to be released right before Christmas. I hadn’t updated on these items yet, because I knew more would be coming. I’m not sure if even more will be announced, but we’ll just have to see. Just a few weeks ago many people thought we were going to get nothing new Who-wise for Christmas and now we’ve got a bunch already announced.
First up and probably most important is the release of Peri and Sil. It’s cool to get the Sil, but Peri is the big draw here. As I said on Twitter, if we’re getting Peri, we’re bound to be getting every other important companion. Also, somebody at Character Options must love the 6th Doctor. We’ve got a ton of 6th Doctor stuff, second only to the 4th. This has been solicited for the United States as well.
For you modern Doctor Who fans, a new Tardis playset has been announced. It’s the Christmas adventure set and included the 11th Doctor’s Tardis, the 11th Doc and a brand new Amy Pond in Kiss-o-gram outfit. That’s pretty cool if you want that Amy or don’t have that Tardis. I don’t know if I’ll be picking it up or not.
Finally we have a new 7th Doctor from his battle with the Rani. It’s very similar to the previously released cream coated Doctor, but isn’t quite the same. This would be a good replacement for that one, if you didn’t feel like springing for the other. It’d been nice if there was more than a few paint application changes. I don’t know if I will be picking this up or not, but we’ll see. I’m a sucker for the 8th Doctor. This has been solicited for US sales as well.
Also good news for US fans is that all of the new series Daleks are finally on their way to American shores. Unfortunately still no word on the Cyberman set or the other 8th Doctor Daleks set. Hopefully we’ll hear something on those eventually, but for now I guess we have to deal with what we’ve been given. Will there be more Doctor Who toy announcements before Christmas?!
