Doctor Who Vinyl Figures Hit Stores
Celebrate the intrepid Time Lord with this unique collaboration between BBC Worldwide and Titan Merchandise, featuring a ‘multiverse’ of figures to collect!
Curated by world-renowned vinyl designer Lunartik, this 16-character adult collectable set (including four super-rare “chase” figures) is based on the global hit TV show Doctor Who and includes stylised interpretations of Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor, his amazing time-and-spacecraft, the TARDIS and some of his most notorious foes – including the supremely evil Daleks and the inhuman Cybermen, along with Ood and Judoon figures.
Each vinyl figure is 3″ tall and several designs come with character-specific accessories, and are blind-boxed, adding to the mystery and excitement of hunting down all 16 designs – although of course you could end up with duplicates. Whether this is good or bad depends on your liking for toy armies.
Available from specialist retailers throughout the UK from 19th December 2012 you can get your figures from Forbidden Planet in the UK (SRP £7.99) and Entertainment Earth in the USA (SRP $9.99) (where you will also find a $199.99 display box available, featuring the entire range, from January).
