Figurine Collection Gets Limited US Release
In the UK, each figurine is accompanied by a magazine, made by Eaglemoss… but, reports The Doctor Who Site, the licenses for magazines and figures are owned by different companies in the US. The figurines, made from metallic resin, will be available through Entertainment Earth, though the magazines are yet to be announced.
The first one, the Eleventh Doctor delivering his thrilling speech from The Pandorica Opens, is released across the pond in November – just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary! – and will be followed by Davros from Journey’s End and The Age of Steel’s Cyber-Controller.
Measuring 4”, each figurine costs $15.99, which works out at just under £10. Seems a bit unfair, considering the UK gets each one for £6.99 (or£7.99 if you get a subscription, including the special Daleks offer) and that includes a beautifully-designed magazine!
Earlier this month, Ben Robinson, Managing Director at Eaglemoss, told us:
You need a strong sense of what will work well – not every pose looks good when it’s replicated as a figurine – and to come up with a pose, and a moment, that sums up the character. When you get it absolutely right you should have a little intake of breath when you see the physical figurine. We’ve got some coming up that really did that for me. In particular the Silent and our first character from the classic episodes, Omega.
