Underground Toys now tell us the new Doctor Who 5 inch figures are cancelled due to a "factory

The award for the worst Twitter representation for a brand has to go to the new US Underground Toys account that was set up in the latter half of 2016 and that hyped up a bunch of new Doctor Who 5" collectors figures - including a new 10th Doctor in Tuxedo and two brand new 12th Doctor sculpts.

Roll forward to January, about a month out from the promised release date of February, and when asked by a fan this is the response from Underground Toys...

Further questioning has confirmed not a single one of the three promised figures will now see the light of day.

Interestingly some details via a US site has contradicted the quote, claiming that UT were trying to solicit a US retailer to commit to these figures with a minimum of 5000 units. This would certainly make much more sense than saying there was a factory problem...

I suspect this, along with the waning interest in the show itself, is the final nail in the coffin of the Doctor Who figure line.
