Regeneration Figure Exclusive
Check out those burgundy threads! In a Forbidden Planet exclusive fans can get their sweaty mits onÂ a Fifth Doctor action figure decked out in Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor threads.
The figure is modelled on Peter Davison’s first full appearance as the Doctor inÂ Castrovalva which saw him suffering from post regeneration trauma.
Crashing the TARDIS on the planet Castrovalva he slowlyÂ realises the planet is nothing more than a paradoxical, wibbly wobbly trap created by the dastardly Master and his beard.
The figure captures a significant moment in Who’s history leading into an era where many first began to fall in love with the adventures of a mad man in his blue box.
Now all we need is a Watcher figure and the dying moments from Logopolis can be recreated again and again.
The figure costs Â£14.99 from Forbidden Planet and can only be shipped to the UK and Ireland.
