Exclusive Omega, Drashig & Auton!
What’s Christmas without a good villain? There’s that mean one Mr. Grinch who momentarily triumphed over the saccharine forces of good to pull off Grand Theft Season, that loveable scamp Ebenezer Scrooge, who was cheated out of murdering a Cratchit through neglect by pesky old Christmas magic and finally what about mean old B.Z from Santa Claus: The Movie, who, in perhaps the most heinous crime of all, was guilty of trying to commercialize Christmas! In a movie… commercialising Christmas… cough…
In this Forbidden Planet exclusive you get Omega, founding father of Time Travel and Antimatter manipulator from The Three Doctors, a classic Auton figure from Spearhead from Space and, finally, the swamp dwelling Drashig from Carnival of Monsters.
Now you can act out the bickering between the trio at having just the Auton’s make it into the Alliance!
The Drashig itself stands at 220mm tall and serves as a children’s hand puppet with a mouth that can be animated just like, if not more reliable than, the special FX that made the real Drashig move.
Omega comes with a detachable head and stands at 6.7’’ tall (with the head obviously) while the Auton figure comes with a Nestene sphere accessory and a swappable gun hand.
The set is available for pre-order now from Forbidden Planet and will set you back a smart £44.99 with deliveries set to storm the warehouse on 14th December.
