Feisty shop assistant Rose Tyler’s life was saved by a chance encounter with the Ninth Doctor, who invited her to travel with him. Although travelling with the Doctor was often dangerous, Rose told him she would stay with him forever.

Witnessing the Ninth Doctor’s regeneration only made that bond stronger. During the Battle of Canary Wharf Rose and the Tenth Doctor were separated – trapped on parallel worlds. Using a Dimension Cannon she attempted to make contact with the Doctor on several occasions, eventually encountering him as he was exterminated by a Dalek.

Once healed and the Daleks defeated, he returned Rose to the parallel world with her family and the half-human version of himself, to live the rest of their lives together.

BIG Chief Studios are proud to announce the next pre-order in the Doctor Who 1:6 Scale Figure Collection – Rose Tyler.

Featuring a fully realised likeness of Billie Piper, the figure comes outfitted in her series 4 costume and is armed with the Torchwood Gun, plus numerous accessories and a light-up Bad Wolf display base.

    I think Missy and River Song have a good chance of being made. Here’s hoping for a Donna. I wonder if they will make Bill? They should focus on the classic doctors first so people can have a full set of doctors.

      they will spread out the doctors over a number of years – otherwise their business wont have much of a future

    Everyone is saying the face is not good and this is one of their weakest head sculpts, but it does look like Billie Piper. What you mean to say is, you don’t like Billie Piper’s face, not the sculpt. It looks a lot like her, but it looks a bit off and inaccurate because that’s how she looked like, I read somewhere here, quite a while ago, that she had some type of surgery or something, so it is accurate

      What most people mean to say is that they’ve picked a rather bizarre expression. Might be accurate, but that choice has really screwed up the figure as it doesn’t look nice, a more neutral expression than the one picked may have worked a lot better.

      It’s a poor sculpt because it has come from a decent design of a poor choice.

      Nobody actually stated that they “didn’t like Billie Piper’s face” so what is the point your trying to make? Mine is that the face scult was too ambitious and therefore it looks nothing like her!

    How can people say this doesn’t look like Billie Piper? To me, the face sculpt looks extremely like Billie Piper, if not an absolute exact representation of Rose in series 4. I’m also glad Big Chief went with sculpted hair instead of rooted, as rooted hair figures, especially Amy, hasn’t really looked like who they are meant to be. I’m really tempted to buy this!

    Why can’t Character release a 5 inch figure of Rose like this? The two we got aren’t that good tbh.
    Series 1 – Disco Arms and weird facial expression
    Series 2 – Outfit is not that good, she wore so many better outfits in the 2nd series. Plus pose ability was not good either.

      Send your thoughts to C.O I want an official decent Rose figure too.

      This is what we need:
      -S1 Rose in pink hoodie (with Removable Satchel & Auton Arm)
      -S4 Rose as seen above (with Torchwood Gun & Dimension Cannon)
      -The Moment (with Big Red Button Version of Moment box)

      Not too sure on a S2 one, not many outfits good enough for a figure in my opinion.

    • Professor Kaxaran

      A series 2 outfit which best represents Rose is her Impossible Planet outfit… pink jacket and jeans. I made a custom of this.

      I agree with JA for the Series 1, 4 and The Moment figures.
      For series 2 I think should be Army of Ghosts/Doomsday Blue Jacket and Jeans – With a removable White Coat with Psychic Paper.

      Apparently, Billie Piper refused to let them make a new figure, after how bad the first too were.

      Character’s sculpting improved during their 5″ figure tenure compared to those first figures we got of Rose and 9 back in ’05. Plus Piper gave BC permission to do this figure, so why not a 5.5″ version?

    I’m not joining the argument about whether or not it looks like Billie Piper, but I honestly don’t understand why they didn’t give her a more neutral expression, like the rest of the figures in the range. It’s like when they released the first Forth Doctor figure in the 5″ range – he was the only figure at the time with anything other than a neutral expression, and it stood out.

    I’m completely baffled as to how people can say this looks nothing like her.
    This figure is based off the three episodes in series 4 that she appeard in. Her look in those episodes was a lot different to her appearances in series 1 & 2 in many ways from her dress style to her actual facial expressions due to personal changes that Billie Piper chose.
    If you put a photo of rose from series 4 next to this figure you can see how good the likeness is.
    Do not compare this figure to a series 1/2 Rose.

    The fact Billie gave permission for this gives me hope that we might get a 5.5″ figure of this version of Rose at last!

    It reminds me of David Walliams in The God Complex. Is there a frightened mole man running around with Billie’s face?

      And you all wonder why she never had another figure made…?
      It’s not their best likeness but it’s still damn good.

      It does look like her, just they’ve gone for a rather awkward expression she pulled at one point in the episode. Also, without wanting to pry into her private life too much she did have some rather obvious cosmetic work done between leaving and returning to the show so she’s accurate to Billie Piper as she was at the time.

      I think they have done a good job, it is quite accurate to the episode

      No, lol, this is terrible! I’m not going to stand here and stick up for Big Chef’s work on this… It isn’t accurate and looks nothing like her!!!!

      Cropped the face and showed it to my 9 year old daughter, asking, “who’s this?” She instantly said, “It’s Rose”. So it does look like her.

      Basing that entire opinion on the view of one person is very ignorant really. Perhaps that’s what big chef have done here too!

      The facial expression was far to ambitious and now it looks nothing like her, shame really

    Probably the worst Big Chief figure so far
