Brand New Action Figures!

Very exciting news of two brand new action figures by Character Options! One of the figures is of Jenny, the Doctor's daughter (I'll definitely be getting this), and the other is (drumroll please!) of the Brigadier! Hooray! Yes the Brig is to be made into an action figures. Although at the moment it is unknown whether this will be of the young Brig in the classic series range, or whether it will be old Brig as part of the upcoming Sarah Jane Adventures series 2 figure range.

But it doesn't stop there. Rumours of six brand-new figures are arousing (as well as a mysterious picture, which you can view below), this time from many different series of Doctor Who. The mystery figures are as follows:
  • Bannakaffalatta ('Voyage of the Damned')
  • Captain Jack without longcoat ('Utopia')
  • Clockwork Man - New version ('The Girl in the Fireplace')
  • Holographic 9th Doctor ('The Parting of the Ways')
  • Korwin ('42')
  • Old 10th Doctor ('The Sound of Drums' / 'Last of the Timelords')

Please don't get your hopes up, as these have not yet been confirmed and the figures in the picture could be customs. However, if these are confirmed DWF will report it A.S.A.P.

Also, we can assume that action figures of the Cyberleader, other Doctor, etc, from 'The Next Doctor' will probably be released, considered David Morrisey's character's importance in the episode.

What do you think about this? Which age of The Brigadier should it be? Aren't there enough Clockwork Man variations already? Is the Holographic 9th Doctor just another way of getting more cash?

Please comment.

UPDATE: In other action figure news...
The action figure of Astrid Peth which is part of the Companions Set (featuring Astrid, Rose, Martha, Donna, Sarah Jane, and K9) differs from the original figure of her, which was part of the 'Voyage of the Damned' set (featuring Astrid, the Doctor, and 2 Hosts). The difference of the figures is that the Companions Set version of Astrid has no apron and the 'Voyage of the Damned' Set does (see commparison below).


So, whichever you prefer, you can buy it now! However, for those of you who don't want the 'Voyage of the Damned' Set and already have the other figures in the Companions Set, there is news of a single-carded Astrid Peth figure coming soon.
I know I'll be getting that one!
