New 5" Doctor Who sets coming to B&M stores in Summer 2018

The Doctor Who Site has revealed exciting details of the B&M store Doctor Who packs for 2018.

Over the past couple of years, B&M have commissioned packs of the 5" Doctor Who figures for sale in their stores. Each pack is generally made up of repacks and repaints.

This year the bar has been raised significantly.

The 1970's pack is made up of a new 4th Doctor in his Weng Chaing "Sherlock Holmes" inspired outfit. This had been developed by Character when the line was in full flow, but never made it to an official release. This version appears to be a 3rd Doctor body with a new cloak section. The Doctor is accompanied by a Brigadier figure based on his look in Spearhead from Space and throughout Pertwee's first series, cleverly this is a re-use of the Captain Jack Harkness body with a Lethbridge Stewart head. Finally we get a repaint of the Auton to make a Terror of the Autons version.

The next pack is an 11th Doctor themed pack and includes a repainted 11th Doctor as seen in The Snowman. This is the Doctor figure from the 2014 Impossible Girl set, minus the hat. He is accompanied by Clara from Asylum of the Dalek and Amy from Lets Kill Hitler. While Clara is just a straight up repack from the same "Impossible Girl "set, Amy is a full repaint from her original figure with some impressive printing on her T-Shirt and Coat.

Pack three gets us up to date with the 12th Doctor. The highlight here is the Bill Potts figure we saw over Christmas 2017. It seems this might have been destined for Toys R Us stores, and has since been reworked into this line. It is worth noting the T-shirt design has changed since the image we first saw, and this therefore may be just one of other Bill figures on the way - it was noted earlier in 2018 that Amazon were potentially lining these up as exclusives? We get a tweaked Missy figure from Extremis. The final figure is the 12th Doctor in his red jacket. This is another repaint of the original 12th Doctor figure.

If we follow the last lot of exclusives the three packs will retail around £16.99, potentially a little higher this year.

There is a fourth set with a new 3rd Doctor figure and a repainted TARDIS. The Doctor is wearing his Time Monster outfit, This is the red jacket that was used in the 13 Doctor box set, but with a white cravat instead of the bow tie. The TARDIS is a non electronic version, and int he promo images looks a little too light in the blue, but we will see how this looks in reality when the sets hit stores.
