Missing Eleven? Time To Embrace Big Chief Smith
It’s been over a month, and still the shadow of Matt Smith’s excellent Eleventh Doctor hangs over the world of Doctor Who. If you’re one of the many fans trying to come to terms with “that old bloke” then why not embrace self-indulgence and splash out on one of the most excellent figurines ever produced?
Back in 2011, Big Chief Studios raised their head above all the other geek merchants at the SDCC and wowed the gathering hordes with the first images of their 12 inch Eleventh Doctor figure. It’s been around a while now, but we thought you might like to spend a few moments admiring it again…
Sadly unavailable from Forbidden Planet (or any standard retailer) these days, all 250 copies were sold pretty quickly. However, a trip to eBay will reveal that there are quite a few on sale right now…
The likeness is absolutely fantastic (as you’d expect for something that originally retailed £149.99), capturing the pensiveness of a mid-thought Eleventh Doctor with realistic flesh tones and perfectly sculpted features.
You might even accompany him with a (still available) similarly proportioned Amy Pond!
