The superb Eaglemoss part work Doctor Who Figurines continue with issues 3, 4 and 5 incorporating Weeping Angels, Cyber Controllers and Silurians!
It’s really difficult to criticise these intricate models at all, and these three offerings are top notch.
The Cybercontroller is complete with scary see through cranial mask, his nasty brain clearly visible. The one fault I’d reluctantly point out is that the Cyberman looks like it has white eyes and pupils, which, of course, it shouldn’t have, but I’m nit picking.
The Weeping Angel is a tour de force, and could be placed as a piece of art in the home whether you have the other figures or not.
But it’s the Silurian (from the s6 series Cold Blood) which really stands out, as it is the most organic and least uniform to date. The detail is exquisite on this. Let’s hope they decide to have a classic Silurian in the future.
Don’t dismiss the magazines as an extra either. These well informed and full colour publications pull lots of quotes from Doctor Who Confidential and cover the whole 50 years of the series comprehensively. They have a personable voice to them too and are crammed with information – for instance, the tight netting around the Silurian and her disc shaped gun are homages to the Sea Devils of old.
If you haven’t started this collection yet, I’d recommend you did. The look very handsome on a shelf.
