Character have launched their new range of 3.75" figures:
From June 2013, fans can regenerate their treasured collections with a new Doctor Who 3.75 inch scale action figure. These highly detailed, realistic and poseable action figures include characters from Doctor Who Series 7 and are ideal to re-enact scenes from the series or create brand new time-travelling adventures. The first instalment includes six characters:

Explaining the change of figures from the previous 5" collection, Character said:
This new action figure collection is presented in 3.75 inch scale and many of you will be asking why the size of the figures has changed for this new series. Quite simply, with this being the 50th year of Doctor Who we wanted to refresh our product offering, and create something new and exciting for avid fans and children to collect. Our research also showed that many children today are collecting smaller figures and boy's action figures across the market are moving to this size. The new figures are compatible with other action figures and playsets in the marker, so kids can easily mix and match their play scenarios which are an integral part of the play pattern.

Of course there are many benefits too. The new collection is more affordable to the millions of fans, however more importantly absolutely no compromise has been made on the detail and quality.

In addition to the individual figures, Character have also created two "Timezone Playsets", themed around "Cold War" and "Dalek Invasion":

1983 - In the cold waters of the Southern Arctic Ocean, a Russian submarine returning from patrol takes on board a suspicious cargo, and the Doctor is reunited with one of his oldest foes. [order]
