Comic Con Exclusives Coming to Stores

Underground Toys, we salute you. Not only have you produce some damn fine action figures for the lost boys that are Doctor Who fans but you also listen to us to! Not even our partners do that!

Doctor Who - The Claws of AxosFor those of us too poor to make it out to Comic Con this year to sample some of the manufactor’s Doctor Who Con exclusives, a limited number of the Eleventh Doctor and Scientist Dalek action figure double packs are being made available from the 18th August in UK Forbidden Planet Stores.

The Doctor is modelled on his appearance in Flesh and Stone, where he lost his trademark jacket and comes with a Sonic Screwdriver accessory while the Scientist Dalek is modelled on the orange ‘Fiat Dalek’ from Victory of the Daleks.

The sets are so rare that there isn’t even a notification on the Forbidden Planet site meaning fans are going to have to sacrifice shoe leather to get one.

One fan commenting on the doctorwhosite said that they had already picked up a set in store for a whopping £79.99!

Ebay.com has one of the sets available for $31.00 (about £19.90) which begs the question: What will happen on the 18th and just how much will they sell for?

If that was all bit too expensive for you also released by those cheeky scamps at Underground is The Master & Axon double set. The Master is presented in a spot on likeness of  his first incarnation played by great Roger Delgado from the Third Doctor serial Terror of the Autons.

He also comes in his iconic suit with his Tissue Compression Eliminator weapon accessory and an Axon creature as they appeared together in the adventure The Claws of Axos (Don’t you love the way they take the flaws of some of the monsters costumes and makes them part of their design? It would seem odd if the Axon didn’t look a little ‘baggy’.)

The Master & Axon set will cost £24.99

Both sets are only available to UK and Eire customers.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    I’m going to get THE Master and Axon double pack next week. Apparently there has been a bit of a rush for them at FP stores across the UK-not suprising really given the great man himself is now immortalised.
    Bit of an ouch re Dalek scientist two pack price-surely they must do the new Dalek collection in a special pack? The drone is already hard to come by Wait a minute, I thought the new Daleks where’nt popular…….

    yay I did something useful!

    Anyways yeah I wanna get the Master but I’m about to move home so can’t spare much money currently. Hoping they still have a set in a month or so. Delgado is a legend.

    With the Dalek Scientist pack being somewhat expensive does this mean it’s futile to want a full set of the new Daleks? I suppose could get several Drones and paint them up but I’ve been unable to find even them lately except that one day I saw two and I came back an hour later with money and they had both gone.

    Carn, I’m not aware of the Delgado two park being limited, unlike the the Dalek two pack, so it should be around for quite a while.
    FP are apparently getting more Drones in late August.
    After I posted, I read elsewhere, that all the Daleks from Victory are going to be released in a special set, although judging by some of the responding comments, there is some question about the validity of this information.
    If the Dalek two pack is reasonably priced, then I will get it-but £79 is out of the question-gotta eat!

    Maybe. But I’ve still not yet managed to obtain any of the classic Cybermen (i particularly want the Earthshock one) as I can never find them in stores when I actually have money to get one but there be rare times I do and I’m broke at those times. grr…
