Just saw this on youtube. Coming along nicely. The general consensus is September, but a friend of mine heard April! Also, I refuse to believe that Character Options won't offer this by itself. The other figures are sold separately, so this one should be. It's only fair.

Well, I hope the finished product will be different from this...



BLACK hair? And what is up with the eyes? Shocked

I'm just hoping the paint job changes before the finished product, as sometimes happens with action figures.

As to how he'll be sold, the rumor is he'll only be in the 11 Doctors box set. But I really hope that won't be true. I want a single-carded Eight so I can buy a bunch and customize them into other Paul characters. Very Happy

I just found this on Forbidden Planet's UK website:

http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=59966

It's the full set of 11 Doctors, due for release in August 2010!

Looks like those early paints/sculpts were essentially rough drafts. The real deal looks significantly better. I was sort of hesitant to accept those others as the final product because I've seen their other figures up close of late and they're dead on.

Bless you my child, this saves me from making them. If you're in the US try http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=UND10300&mode=retail I've done business with them before. And I wanted to get out of this scale but I also wanted a set of itty bitty Doctors.

Anyone in the hobby world who does repaints can fix yer Paul for ya.

Hmm, I'm still not really thrilled with the final look. But I guess I'll have to wait 'till my set arrives to decide. If worse comes to worse, I can always give him a repaint job. Very Happy
