This is Big Chief Studios' sixth-scale Tenth Doctor, whom you can attempt to preorder today for around $300 (h/t rabidronnie). He comes loaded with accessories, and his base lights up with the Gallifreyan symbol for "ten."

This is Hasbro's new 12" Iron Man. They are making it very clear that they don't believe collectors with any discernment will be interested. It has five points of articulation.

And what hideous rip-off price are they charging for this?

Oh.

$12.99? Really? Like, less than a 6" Marvel figure?

Eh, still a rip-off. Unless you're still buying toys solely to hit your brother in the face with (you should stop that). Then it's total bang for the buck.
