Character does Capaldi

In an interview with Alasdair Dewar from Character over at the Daily Record site, he says that there will be one of those rubbish “regneration” action figures [which I’ve never seen the point of] of Capaldi’s head on Matt’s body. So far so uninteresting. What’s much more interesting is the photo accompanying the article…

If you look, he’s sketching the current Tardis – does that mean we’re going to finally get another Playset? I’d buy it if we were, the last one was a bit rubbish, frankly. And if not, why is he sketching it?

Also, that looks like a Stars`n`Stripes Dalek just behind him. We’ve already had a Union Jack model, so does this mean the Yanks are going to get one of their own? Given that the profile of the series is rising steadily Stateside, that would seem to make commercial sense…

UPDATE:

Didn’t know you could follow this bloke on Twitter but apparently you can, which is where I found out the following:

Apparently the Tardis design he’s working on in the pic is for another one of those Collect And Build things, but only for the 3.75″ range. Shame.

There will NOT be a 5″ Dr Capaldi.

YES, that is a Stars`n`Stripes Dalek

You can follow Al Dewar on Twitter – check out his photos, including a fab pic of a Troughton AF in his fur coat, which I hope is for an “Abominable Snowmen” set…
