First Statue, Second Doctor, Tenth Planet

Second Doctor Who Statue Patrick TroughtonFollowing the success of their continuing Maxi Bust series, Forbidden Planet is introducing a new range of Doctor Who polystone figures, with legs added at no extra cost!

The first announced member of this set of collectible Signature Edition statues depicts none other than the Second Doctor himself, Patrick Troughton, as he appeared at the end of the Season 4 William Hartnell finale The Tenth Planet.  This full-colour likeness is accurate, despite the story’s black-and-white recording, thanks to numerous behind-the-scenes shots of Troughton in costume.

It’s a work of art that stands 9-inches tall (an inch taller than the Maxi Busts on their stands) and comes boxed ready-to-display with an individually-numbered Certificate of Authenticity, so you can prove to all your friends that this isn’t one of those “fake” Patrick Troughton statues floating about.

You can pre-order your Patrick Troughton Signature Edition Statue at the Forbidden Planet website for just £49.99… that’s 17% off the £59.99 RRP!  However, you’ll have to wait a few months – Forbidden Planet doesn’t expect this Second Doctor replica to be in their warehouse until July 15th.  But if their description and that image up there are anything to go by, it’ll be worth the wait!

    is nice but I’m happier with the very similar looking but posable action figure of him which i paid for the same price and got all the doctors included too :P

    It does look nice but I’m wary. I started buying the old statue range from Product Enterprise, getting the Hartnell and Troughton statues–both larger and even more meticulous in detail—only to find out that they ran into trouble with the Pertwee estate and thus I got stuck with only the first two Doctors and the line was discontinued. Meanwhile,their latest incarnation of statues featured a Tom Baker even bigger and more beautiful at 15 inches, yet I hear nothing about further statues of more Doctors and I’ve got two very different size scales of Doctors here….and this one would be yet a different, smaller scale…..gah!


    • Anyone notice similarity between this and the Character Options figures? Wonder if they’re using the same molds?

    Similar thing happened with the Corgi Star Trek vessels collection. Got the original Enterprise, Enterprise-D and the Klingon Bird Of Prey. Then they discontinued the line!.
    Was looking forward to having the Defiant and Voyager too… :-(
