In other words, it’s Doctor Who doing what it does best; taking established sci-fi ideas, giving them a spin through some of the finest creative minds television has to offer (in this case the untouchable pairing of Hinchcliffe and Holmes) and turning them into something bold, entertaining and altogether more exciting.
Also, it has a rather rubbish talking plant…yeah.
So to celebrate this Forbidden Planet have germinated this exclusive The Seeds of Doom 1976 Setto forever remind us of the dangers of letting your garden grow.
You may wonder whether Underground Toys (who’ve been busy tweeting images of the set) just emulated the production team and simply sprayed an Axos figure green.
However you’d be wrong, as the Krynoid is quite an impressive creature – coming as he does with two seed pods fresh from the Antarctic, one open and one closed – more than making up for the familiarity of the Fourth Doctor’s look – although he does come ready to buck some swash with a nifty cutlass accessory.
Sorting out the Krynoids from the weeds the exclusive The Seeds of Doom 1976 set is set to grow exponentially and devour Forbidden Planet‘s warehouse on the April 2nd for £24.99
