Doctor Who: Wave Two Action Figures
In an outrageous bid to usurp Santa Forbidden Planet have gone all B.Z. Toys on us and have unleashed not one, not two, but all four of the new Wave Two Doctor Who action figures just in time for you to add them to your shopping lists and to forget all about St. Nick.
The Cybermen – once a veritable metallic virus converting healthy life into soulless metal, now turned deus ex machinas for dads with baby issues – are back!
Taken from their non-appearance in Closing Time the (deep breath) Corroded Cyberman Chest Electric Shock Hand (rolls right off the tongue) and Corroded Cyberman Limb Electric Shock Hand figures unsurprisingly are both a little rusty and a bit shocky.
The ‘Electric Shock Hand’ comes courtesy of two wibbley blue plastic waves shooting out of our Cyberpals hands which are reminiscent of the ‘energy beams’ you’d find coming from the toy Ghostbusters proton packs. Perhaps Bustin’ makes them feel good?
Also The Silence Closed Mouth with Lightning figure also comes with…what’s that noise?…Where was I…? Ah yes the Silence figure also comes with the same wibbley blue plas…What’s that…? The Silence figure also comes with…I…The Silence figure also comes with…
Oh! It appears that someone attacked me with a black marker pen, must have been in my weekend alcohol-fuelled slumber…
Anyway memory wiping aside the new wave is rounded off by NASA Spacesuit with River Song Head (seriously, that’s its title) which features River (who despite the presence of a helmet still looks a little mannish) dressed by the masters of iconic images, the Silence, as an astronaut in The Wedding of River Song.
Each of these new figures from Character Options stands at 5 inches tall and is available now from Forbidden Planet for £8.99 each!
