MY Theory

This i warn you will be brief
and i shall say this only once '
CO Don't like Classic Figures Merchandise
there i said it
I base my opinion on this fact they did it it was a wave it was out there ,it out sold the new who (Problem number one) and it was great
This is a by product a fringe idea for them there main 'who ' line is new who so they down graded it to small time and collectors stores in there eyes get to get to have there cake and eat it

I draw this conclusion after 3 hard years of getting classic figures and a whole year of extraordinary  merchandise at break neck release speed and at double / triple and general extortionate price EG (Fact) £8 figure of who is now £16 or bundled with another figure £25 ,New TARDIS £15 RSP Classic £35  with figure you already got BTW
Sublime to ridiculous?, oh yes, minor repaint or tiny little tweak
Or as has happened recently a figure vast majority already have  and one repainted ,no ooo or arrrrr factor any where but feel free to charge the earth
This is damaging how can anyone afford this (That question has puzzled me my entire life) but they do but i have noticed not all
and the quality is dropping like a brick paint sculpts not what they should be
And to be frank ,its getting really really sloppy and careless
EG (Fact ) there producing four pack remembrance  7th Dr Dalek set ,and it is really bad the white imperial came with Dr7 so i know it it is all shades of white and inaccurate and to stick the collar slats off this onto the wrong grey Dalek cos they have it is wrong

This all started out so well
We got Daleks with correct fenders guns eye discs  even the gun had detail like crimp in middle from handling ,real thought and attention

WHY ? like everyone said they did not produce the right 7th Dr Dalek (It was taller straiter) they could easily get money back off the cost of tooling this set ,
gos to show the imperial with Dr7 was not a 'one' off
there is Dr 6 white Daleks there is 7th s Daleks grey /black and white and skirt for special weapons (Which was superposed to be mistake not going to happen oh look there it is)  and there is all sorts of stand alone releases
now its like  they could not care less everything is a after thought knock it out and it is not good enough i expect for my money and for the high price there charging

well thats my theory and im sticking to it
I am more than happy to wait pick and choose
Got a real good gander at 11 Drs set today ,great  3/ 4 and of course we ain't got 8 .
 There is a LOT of repainting to be done and that  got me quite thinking and be good to own and how i can improve (although collage is center of my attention ATM )
 but rest leaves me cold made me yearn for these to be available separately at £8 ,fifty is a lot to find and hassle of selling all the ones not wanted

CO Knock it into gear please sort your house out and commit to WHO Classic
