Figures based on 'The Invasion' Cybermen and 'The Tomb of the Cybermen' er, Cybermen (with cybermats)
It's like someone is making toys just for me.
Wait, there is a range with multiple incarnations of proper Cybermen? I fear that I can definitely see myself picking up some of these. I can see myself ending up with a Patdoc being menaced by multiple generations of Cy-ber-meeen. They were after all one of his iconic monsters.
There is such a range. I almost fell over when I saw them. I am so buying them when they're more widely available! -Ralph
I think they qualify as essential purchases. I might even be tempted to attempt to acquire all of the Build-a-Figure (the first time I will ever have bothered with something like that) if it is a Cyber-Controller to lead them.
I bought the Time Squad 2 packs of Slitheen and Weeping Angel as well as Sontaran VS The Doctor.
These are brilliant thus far! Just opened Slitheen and Weeping Angel and find that these pose really nicely (more like the TMNT: Mutants and not stuck in one posture like with TF: Robot Heroes). The Doctor looks like he can optionally hold the Sonic Screwdriver, whereas the Sontaran is firmly attached to his gun (makes sense
Weeping Angel is my favourite of the two, and he's got a decent gimmick also.
Ralph is torn. There are 2 new Cuddly Colin figures in FP. One is Colin in a blue coat from 'Real Time'. I may be able to resist that. But the other is Cuddly Colin 'regeneration figure' ie in knackered Davidson coat. I. Want. It.
The B &W 1st and 2nd Doc figures also look awesome.

2011 series figures have turned up in my local ASDA. Big gap where I presume the Daleks were.
Whereas in my Tesco the only figure that survived the first forty-eoght hours on sale was a solitary Dalek Drone. They had sold everything else they had put out between Thursday night and Saturday morning.
(New Daleks look even tubbier as toys than they did on-screen)
Finally seen more of the New New Who figures in shops in Falkirk. Tesco has things that are not Daleks - Amy Pond and some blokes who I don't really recall from early episodes - whilst Toymaster has a red Fat Dalek and Dalek Ironsides lurking on its shelves. (Along with a giant remote control Fat Dalek).
If I had possessed money on me I would have picked it up, but unfortunately I had spent the contents of the wallet on food by then. I may donder back at the weekend and see if it is still there. It could team up with my Black Dalek bubble-bath container to help it with its dreams of ruling my desk.
I must have handed out two dozen Red Daleks in my final weeks at Toys'r'us. There was one in a box, along with one Tommy Dalek, two Weeping Angels (malformed and fully formed), three Winders, one Doctor, one Pond, and three other dudes. A later assortment mercifully took out a winder and put in a second red dalek.
If you don't see any out, always ask a member of staff if they have an unopened box in the back! It's your best shot.

Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
CO have made some very dodgy case assortment decisions in their time. They make some of Hasbro's positively sensible.
The problem with this assoretment is the Fatlek & Tommylek are larger than the other figures .... but are the most popular. Multiples of both of these plus multpiles of Matt & Amy and singles of the others would have been best from the consumers POV.
