Tenth Doctor Statue Production Run Increased
Big Chief Studios Limited, the makers of some rather excellent Doctor Who figurines have just announced that due to the unprecedented interest in their Tenth Doctor Fiftieth Anniversary Edition, they will be increasing the number of pieces to one thousand, that’s an additional two hundred and fifty pieces!
The 1:6 scale collectors figure was due to be released with seven hundred and fifty pieces but due to popular demand that has now been increased. The signature version will remain at two hundred and fifty pieces; the company’s website has decided to do this to offer a real collectible and rare item for production during the shows fiftieth anniversary year.
The Tenth Doctor is ready to embark on his next time-travelling adventure, in his brown pinstriped suit and trademark trench coat, his ever-present Sonic Screwdriver by his side. The Doctor comes complete with numerous accessories including his spectacles, 3D glasses, fob watch, psychic paper wallet and water pistol. With eight interchangeable hands to adopt various poses and an illuminating display base featuring the Gallifreyan symbol for the number 10, this is the ultimate collectable for fans of the Tenth Doctor.
To develop the most accurately scaled collector’s figure, our artists studied countless reference photographs, to create a realistic and authentic character portrait of the Tenth Doctor so memorabily portrayed by actor David Tennant. The Time Lord’s trademark costume was hand-tailored in exacting detail, together with his signature accessories.
Officially licensed and authorised by BBC Worldwide, the 50th Anniversary Limited Edition is limited to only 1000 pieces worldwide and is exclusively available from www.bigchiefstudios.co.uk and will not be sold via other retailers. Each figure is numbered and includes an accompanying certificate of authenticity.
This will be something that you may want to snap up this year and you’ll have to hurry as demand is high, once the allotted number of figures have been sold, they won’t be back again! But, Big Chief Studios already have further ideas in mind and if you’re not one of the lucky ones to get a Tenth Doctor Edition this time round, they may well have something for you in the future:
We are certain that there will be some that will be unable to secure one of these figures and for that we apologise. We recognise the huge interest for this character and as such we will offer a different version of the Tenth Doctor down the line. We cannot confirm details yet, but you will all have the opportunity to purchase at a later date.
