Character Building Tardis Console Set

TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space and looks just like a wooden Police phone box from the 1950’s on the outside, but is of infinite proportions on the inside.

This incredible time machine is piloted by The Doctor, a mysterious Time Lord and it’s able to transport him anywhere through time and space, disappearing in one place and reappearing somewhere new.


Amy Pond waited fourteen years for her chance to travel with the Doctor, after meeting him when she was seven years old. Despite her small-town roots, Amy takes everything in her stride and quickly became the Doctor’s best friend.

Now you can build the Eleventh Doctors iconic vehicle with this highly detailed construction playset that features TARDIS interior console room and exterior with alien world landscape. Set also includes four Doctor who micro-figures! The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams and River Song. 7+

      I bought this on my birthday last year and it only falls apart on the wall parts

    Is the Rory figure that comes with this set different to the one that came on it’s own? As I see there are two different Rory pics.


      July 19th, 2012 - 2:39pm

      Never mind I got one yesterday at argos for £12.49,just the same Rory figure so question answered.

      i got mine for christmas and i have to say its smaller than i expected when built but if you can get it in argos for £12.49 then i would highly recommend you getting this.

    I just got mine! Really cool and I love it! Even comes with the mini tardis! Really do have to look hard at the instructions though and it does take a steady hand! Very cleverly done! I rate it 8/10! I advise you to buy and build the smaller playsets first before doing this one so you have some experience! :):):)

    I have got this and its cool but 1 piece did not come with it but its fun still

    • the driver

      July 8th, 2012 - 4:26pm

      Didn’t yours have spare pieces because mine came with quite a few. If it’s a little piece, don’t worry, its not that noticeable.

    This took me 6 hours to build. There were a couple of pieces missing so I had to change it so I didn’t matter. A month later and it’s fallen apart! 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿 👿

      I got one for my son from Argos for 12.94 but it had pieces missing too

    • DoctorWhoFan101

      September 7th, 2014 - 6:22pm

      I got this set for it’s usual price, and there were more pieces gone than there, so my dad and I went circling all of the pieces in the instructions not with the set, and we just gave up and didn’t complain.

    • the driver

      July 8th, 2012 - 5:11pm

      You can get them from character online. Go to the product’s page which is the playset and underneath the picture, there will be a link to the manual.

    Has anybody else taken the back wall of the exterior off so you can see right through the doors?

  • the astronaut of death

    January 3rd, 2012 - 8:41pm

    i am thinking of getting this for my birthday


      January 3rd, 2012 - 8:49pm

      You should, it’s really good. Plus, it’s getting cheaper in a lot of places at the moment.

  • Jaketorwho

    January 3rd, 2012 - 5:56pm

    I got this for christmas, and i love it, very very good, but when i look at your pictures of the set booboo i cant help but notice that mine differs to yours. for example the back wall with the doors and scanner has brown tiles not all yellow. the wall on the left has a piece to hide the gap and the wall where the stairway leads off to actually attaches to the wall. does this mean there is two versions now?

    • booboo

      January 3rd, 2012 - 6:04pm

      must be, this was bought as soon as they came out


      January 3rd, 2012 - 6:05pm

      Either that or you’ve built it wrong, can we have a picture?

    • Jaketorwho

      January 3rd, 2012 - 6:07pm

      i will take pictures for you yes. shall i email them to you booboo

    • booboo

      January 3rd, 2012 - 6:15pm


    • booboo

      January 3rd, 2012 - 7:25pm

      yes its different, looks like they have modified it to make parts of it stronger as ours falls apart easily

    • Jaketor Who

      January 3rd, 2012 - 6:35pm

      hello again
      i sent it to



      January 3rd, 2012 - 7:29pm

      Can we see?

    • booboo

      January 3rd, 2012 - 8:07pm

      looks like they have added a bit to strengthen the stairs and back wall


      January 3rd, 2012 - 8:23pm

      Phew, I thought it was going to be a bigger change than that. And was it just my computer or did the site just go down for a minute?

    • Luke

      January 3rd, 2012 - 8:38pm

      It might have done, I noticed the stats jump about a bit, was there an internal server error message?


      January 3rd, 2012 - 8:39pm

      Yeah, a picture of a Cybermat and it said something about a internal server error.

    October 30th, 2011 - 11:32am

    i think it would be very nice if character building made another amy with trousers:

    the girl who waited
    the impossible astronaut
    the almost people
    a good man goes to war

    or another one with a skirt

    lets kill hiler
    the doctor’s wife
    the god complex
    or amy from day of the moon/ the wedding of river song
    the vampires of venice
    the hungry earth
    the beast below
    the time of angels
    amy’s choice tardis version
    amys choice pregnant version

    • Skaro

      October 30th, 2011 - 11:35am

    I think we need a sub-line of Sarah Jane Adventure sets, starting with the Attic and Sarahs Car
    The figures I would have are
    1. Sarah Jane
    2. Luke
    3. Sky
    4. Clyde
    5. Rani
    6. Slitheen
    7. Judoon
    8. K.9
    10. Metal Kind


      October 15th, 2011 - 3:59pm

      i personally don’t think we need a slitheen, judoon or k9, we have the doctor who ones. i think maybe androvax, eve, maria, trickster, shansheeth, robots…
