    As soon as my birthday money comes in, I intend to go after both versions of the Cybermen, the Slitheen, and the RC K-9.
    I may even troop-build Cybermen.

    Last time I was in the UK was late feb /early March so they were only out at Argos at the time.

    I don't have the face, or the blue guy but I got the regeneration pack, doc with coat, rose, the guy from the xmas ep and the slitheen.

    I do want the ones that I am missing, and I haven't even seen pics of the second series.

    got the 2 Doctor, Rose & K9, and a Slitheen from the first wave; really want to troop-build a few Cybermen but it gets expensive

    I really want to see more pictures and maybe a review of the new 12" figures. They look pretty damn good

    You want to move quick on the Moxx and Cassandra. Moxx isn't in the 2nd series, and Cassandra's had her deco updated, lost the spiders and gained her helper from the 2nd series.

    See http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=4_1165_1707_4940 for the Cyberman & new Cassandra and http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/3694509.htm for the Werewolf, Krillitane & (we think) Captain Jack.

    And you do of course really need the 5inch Daleks too.

    I dunno, I haven't got any, ecause of the lack of articulation on these figs.

    Some look nice, but I want decent arm movement dammit.and hip movement dammit.

    You'll be liking the Cyberman. Could do with a bicep swivel but is great on the articulation front apart from that.

    I still haven't managed to get a Cyberman. Which is annoying because I want about 10.

    I have all the others so far. They're nice enough, but are a bit wooden - they pale next to the standard of articulation set over recent years.

    And the original release of Cassandra has to be one of the biggest rip-off figures ever. That thing should have been an accessory!

    Argos and Tesco have both had them in quantity. The Entertainer - www.thetoyshop.com - have them at 1 per person.

    I went on a bit of a mission today. Two Argos stores, the local toyshop, Asda and Tesco, and came back with the sum total of nothing!

    Gonna check TRU this weekend... Fingers crossed.

    I just want a decently posable Dr Who/Villain/whatever. While the scuplts are nice enough, the current articulation stinks, Rose had what? 5 points? Maybe 6? The Doctor gets maybe 9?

    In a post ML world anything less than 20 is poop. Even Power Rangers SPD look like they have around 20 points!

    They're out. Try Argos. And I believe the 12 inch Cyberleader is out at TRU as well.

    Dunno about US site stocking them or distribution in the states. BBTS has had DW in the past, drop Joel an Email and ask him.....

    well the 12" Cyber Controller is all over ebay, but at a bit of a scalperish price

    I'm waiting to see how much places like WhoNA.com will want for the 5" Cyberman and the 12" figures, before I just bite the bullet and import.

    Cyber Controller and 12 inch Dr Who are out in TRU's here in the UK.

    I was tempted to get the Fat contoller, but exposed brains and the mad staring eyes don't do it for me. I'd be all over a 12 inch Cyberman though.

    5 inch Cyberman is also out - exclusive to TRU. There's a few on eBay - someone's trying to flog one with a £20 BIN.
