New Sylvester McCoy and Dalek Figure Set

Sylvester McCoy figureNew Doctor Who figures are ten a penny these days but downthetubes is particularly excited to see the release of two stunning new Sylvester McCoy figures - one complete with Imperial Dalek, on sale soon as an exclusive release from Forbidden Planet, the other (in brown jacket) with the TARDIS.

Sylvester McCoy figure
The McCoy Years are particularly close to the dtb teams' hearts as John Freeman edited Doctor Who Magazine during that period (and wrote some of the McCoy comic strips) and Ian Wheeler is also a big McCoy fan who contributed to Virgin Publishing's book about that era.

The last Seventh Doctor figure - produced by Dapol - was released well over 20 years ago and looked nowhere near as detailed or well-made as these new figures. So even though the McCoy/Dalek may be twenty-five quid, this downthetubes contributor will be rushing out to buy it!!

The cream jacket/Dalek figure is due for release on 16 March as a Forbidden Planet exclusive, with the brown jacket/TARDIS figure presumably to follow soon after.
