|Cyberman, the Doctor, Jack & K-9|
Since I've been hearing talk lately about the newest Doctor Who shows (which, like all those summer movies, I haven't seen), I thought I'd start with some same-themed toys.
|The Cyberman lived on my desk at work from |
2007-2009. Yes, he always rode a bunny.
Back in 2007 I had the opportunity to share a crate full of new figures with a neighbour (I'd been a fan of the audio adventures for ages and had enjoyed the reboot up to that point, although I'm not sure I was a big enough fan to need a crate of these) - and so I ended up with a wide variety of figures from Character Options' DW Series 2 toys. It was probably a silly thing to do since I really only wanted K-9 and the Cyberman, but either way I also ended up with the 10th Doctor, Rose, Mickey, Jack, a werewolf and two Krillitanes (one grey, one brown).
In terms of quality, these figures are nicely made - they're detailed enough to clearly be the characters and creatures from the show but solid enough to hold up to play. Most of the figures have between nine and eleven points of articulation, and they have great balance.
In the years since then, I've given away the werewolf, and the Krillitanes and Mickey and Rose have ended up in storage, but a few of them are still hanging around. And since I have very few new/good photos of these toys, how about some old terrible ones? ;)

crossover like this? Right?
