I'm still waiting for latest Wave 2 Classic Series Who figs to turn up today from Forbidden Planet. I've had 'em on pre-order since before Christmas and I'm a sucker for the classic range. Truly, they may as well just have a direct debit out of my bank account.

Wave 2 is EarthShock Cyberman, 1967 classic Ice Warrior, Morbius (looking like leftover bits from other model kits), Pyramids of Mars Mummy, The Master (from Deadly Assassin) and (yawn) Voc Robot.
Passing the site, I notice they've got a few new ones on pre-order from the makers, Character Options (I don't do many of the new ones, and when I do I'm picky). The latest wave, End of Time, has only 4 figures - Emo Leaping Blonde ASBO Master, I've Just Fallen out of a Space Ship and it Still Didn't Kill me 10th Doctor, The Narrator (Rassilon), and Another fig With a new Head Stuck on from the 11th Doc (in 10ths outfit). These are all expected on January 31st. The Rassilon's not bad, but it'll be cheap in the shops in 6 months cos no one will want one. I can wait. The rest, alas, are just the usual plastic tat - but no more so than than a few of the classic range if your not a completist like I am. There's some nice bigger images of the new range, as ever, at DoctorWhoToys.net (of which we've pirated one above).
Bless Forbidden Plant for doing these, especially the sweet exclusives from last year. The range of Docs slowly growing on the shelf is lookin' pretty damn cool.
