What a Magnificent Head!
On the heels of Alasdair Dewar’s hints at a Twelfth Doctor figure in the works at Character Options, we have news that BifBangPow is already hard at work on their own figure, this one 8-inch scale EMCE action figure, to join their 8-inch scale collection that already includes, among others, the Fourth Doctor and Leela, as well as the First and Eleventh Doctors.
While all the details of 12′s look have not yet been announced, the artists at BifBangPow have already created a prototype head sculpt for figure, which, like the others in the line, will have real fabric clothing, accessories, and will have multiple points of articulation. Says BifBangPow’s Bethany Grenald:
I was really excited to hear that Peter Capaldi has been chosen to be the 12th incarnation of Doctor Who! Of course, for us, the announcement immediately threw us into high gear! We are licensed to make Doctor Who action figures, and we want to be sure that fans can get their hands on their 12th Doctor action figures as soon as possible!
Along with the Twelfth Doctor, BifBangPow has plans for figures of all of the Doctors as well as River Song, Weeping Angels and other Who characters. The company is looking at a Fall 2014 release for many of the figures. You can read more about the plans on the BigBangPow website.
The Twelfth Doctor is currently available for pre-order at Entertainment Earth for $21.99. Given that each figure in the line is made in limited quantities, you might want to secure yours now ahead of the anticipated May 2014 release!
