Doctor Who logoIf I learned anything as a Doctor Who fan in the 1990s, it was patience and today that skill paid off as two new (to the US) 5″ Doctor Who figures became available for pre-order on Entertainment Earth. It’s been a few months since the announcement of the 2nd Ace figure (she’s due this month), so these new pre-orders show the line still have some life.

Both of these figures are set for an early 2015 release and are available for pre-order at Entertainment Earth (4th, 10th)

The new title from Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc., marks the first Call of Duty® game led by developer Sledgehammer Games and the first time for a three-year development cycle.  Advanced Warfare also introduces the exoskeleton – the biggest core movement change in franchise history.  With the power of the exo, players can boost jump, dodge, slam and more through a visceral and compelling new story; built from the ground up multiplayer experience; and a brand new cooperative mode for the complete entertainment package that only Call of Duty can deliver.

The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare  Day Zero edition provides players with up to 24 hours of early access as well as access to two custom in-game weapons, the AK-12G assault rifle and Crossbow-B2,  a full day of double XP on November 3, and access to the Advanced Arsenal.
