New (to the US) 5″ Doctor Who Figures Announced!

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. The two newly announced figures are a Regeneration 4th Doctor (very similar to a figure included in the UK 4th Doctor Time Capsule DVD set) and a Holographic 10th Doctor (also a UK exclusive figure). Both of these figures are set for an early 2015 release and are available for pre-order at Entertainment Earth (4th, 10th)
