Retro Toys Repackaged!
But these arenâ€™t your standard figurines that you can buy at the moment; itâ€™s a rich and varied tapestry that will include not only the 9-inch Denys Fisher toys from the 1970s but also bobbleheads as part of its range. Each collectible will be eight inches tall and will feature such delights as points of articulation and fabric clothing that is episode specific!
The CEO of the company had the following to say:
â€œBif Bang Pow! is thrilled to bring these brand-new Doctor Who action figures, bobble heads, and collectibles to market. The Denys Fisher range of 9-inch action figures from the 1970s was never released in the United States, and has become one of the most highly sought after toy lines of the past 40 years.
“Doctor Who bobble heads have never been made for any market, so we have the opportunity to offer these highly desired products to a whole new fan-base that never had the chance to purchase them before. Personally, I’ve been waiting for this since 1978, so as The Doctor would say, it’s about time!â€
There are also plans to unveil a line of magnets, coasters and even glass wear for fans to buy. The starter range will be shown at the New York Toy fair, which takes place from February 13th to 16th so if youâ€™re in the area, go and check it out!
