Wonder if that's the SDCC FTM one

Vashta Nerada arrived today... I noticed the face looked two-toned so I check and only half of the face glows, they forgot to paint the rest with GITD paint. ](*,) That's going to bug me lol Anybody else have that problem? I would check my store but they didn't even get any on Friday so I don't think it'd matter.

The Clara Tardis is at Hot Topic now in California.


I found the Clara Tardis at Hot Topic in Pittsburgh. They had 3.

Sometimes I don't understand Box Lunch. I ordered a Clara Tardis when they had 4 left in stock. The next day there were 90+ when someone posted it. Today my order was canceled. Like... why didn't order 91 from the next day get canceled instead? But Amazon has it for pre-order so no big deal. Just ranting.
Or did you think I'd be too stupid to know what a eugoogoly was?

Where is Thirteen #686?

Release in Canada, Gamestop?, a few weeks ago but nothing apparently in the USA. This one is keeping my Doctor Who collection incomplete.

I believe that is intentional because (I believe) the glow is supposed to represent the light in the bottom of their helmets that shine up on their faces (for both the humans and skeletons). in the episodes, this light only shines on the bottom half of their faces.

Hm, ok.. well that makes sense then. Doesn't translate as well in Pop form though, just looks like they forgot to paint the rest with GITD paint lol

Bought the Clara TARDIS at Box Lunch today. They still have no clue when the 13th Doctor will be released in their store.

Vashta was the second to sell out at my local HT. We didn't even get to buy one! I think the villains need to be front and center to save the line. Also more variants of the tardises or is it tardi?

Agreed. The uniqueness of the aliens in Pop form will drag people in I think. Then again, I'm a collector, not a businessman. I'd love an Ood, Slitheen, Sontaron, Judoon and Silurian though!

Doctor Who newbie here, so I apologize if this was asked or answered before....but is the first-to-market Thirteenth Doctor going to get a general release or is the general release just without the coat?

The other "first to market" pops that I can recall also had a regular release (Powerpuff Girls, Unmasked Vader, Super Grover), so I am expecting this Thirteenth Doctor to as well.

I am personally and selfishly hoping its a release without the coat to keep the uniqueness of the FTM SDCC Pop.

The Thirteenth Doctor is baffling so far. No one knows the answer to your question. Another question I have is, what is going on with the no coat release? It seems to have been released in a small quantity in Canada a few weeks ago, but nowhere else since. Mysteries..

That would defeat the purpose of calling it First to Market, because at that point it would just be an SDCC exclusive.

I asked in the funko QA on twitter yesterday. I specifically said “is this mold still coming as a common?” And included a picture of the sdcc one. They replied and said it was still coming.

So it doesn’t look like it’s being replaced by the one without a jacket, it’s still coming thankfully
