Fourth Doctor & K-9

All you collectors are in for another treat this month as Forbidden Planet have another exclusive figurine release in the shape of the Fourth Doctor and K9.

The Fourth Doctor and K-9 exclusives from Forbidden PlanetBeautifully sculpted and pinpoint accurate, this is a recreation of the Season 18  Fourth Doctor, complete with his trusty Sonic Screwdriver and wonderful burgundy coat.

The website describes the pair and also what you get for your money:

“This Doctor masked his brilliant and inventive mind behind a façade of bohemian eccentricity. The longest lived incarnation of the Doctors so far, he was forced to change his body after losing a fight with his old enemy the Master and falling from a radio telescope to the ground beneath him…

K-9 is a mobile computer in the shape of a dog. He was constructed by Professor Marinus to be a companion for him whilst working at a medical foundation in deep space. K-9 is both a huge database and has defensive capabilities, being equipped with a retractable laser in his nose which can be set to stun or kill. He can integrate with virtually any computer system including the TARDIS and has also helped the Doctor escape many a tricky and dangerous situation.

The Doctor rebuilt K-9 several times, upgrading and improving each version.

In this exclusive release you get the Fourth Doctor in his famous season 18 burgundy outfit and featuring a stunning new head sculpt. He is accompanied by the trusty K-9.”

If you’re feeling like you’re collection isn’t nearly complete enough then this is just what the Doctor ordered (ahem).

Once again, Forbidden Planet cannot ship overseas and so this offer is for UK and Irish customers only.

The item is on pre order now and is priced at £19.99, visit to bag yours.

    I went to their website originally and *at the time*, they didn’t have the exclusive warning in red. I thought ‘great’! so I ordered it, put in all the CC info, put in the USA for postage, etc., no complaints, nothing said, got the email confirmation in the order, everything. Sure is nice of them to put the order through seeing as how they have no intention of shipping it to me. So I had to contact them to have them cancel the order. Because if you don’t….

    can’t see his legs. is he wearing his boots or the fifth doctor’s shoes? Hope it’s at least got the legs changed or is it just the 5th doc regen figure with a tom baker head?

    yeah, I think it’s the same with a different head. although I can’t remember if the Davison had the shoes or boots? He should have the shoes while Baker has the boots—for obvious reasons. :)

    i’m not sure which the mold already has. i don’t own the regen 5th doctor (I’m currently a one figure per doctor type collector for now til I got more of an income, I’m still saving to get me a Delgado/Axon set) and it’s really difficult to see in most photos of it due to the scarf and coat covering up the feet a lot from the front.

    I just spotted the Davison regeneration one, he is wearing the boots.
