Doctor Who Figurine Collection Time Lords Set #1

Hero Collector Announces New Doctor Who Time Lords Sets!

“I’m a Time Lord. I walk in eternity.”

Hero Collector – designers, manufacturers, and publishers of high-quality collectibles from across the worlds of pop culture – is proud to announce a brand new series of Doctor Who figurine box sets.

Based on the Doctor’s encounters with other members of their Gallifreyan race, the Doctor Who Time Lords sets will give fans an opportunity to collect some of the most memorable masters of the space-time continuum.

Each of the five sets will contain two Time Lords, faithfully recreated as hand-painted polyresin figurines at 1:21 scale (approximately 3.5 inches tall), complete with an in-depth companion magazine – highlighting the history, costumes, and stories behind these characters from the longest-running science fiction show on television!

The first Doctor Who Time Lords box set reunites two old friends – The Curator (Tom Baker) and the second incarnation of Romana (Lalla Ward).

The Curator was a mysterious Time Lord played by Tom Baker, the iconic actor behind the Fourth Doctor. In his brief meeting with Matt Smith’s Doctor, he hinted that he might be another incarnation of the Doctor – who knows? Who knows. The figurine captures the older Time Lord’s pensive air, one arm leaning on a cane and the other stroking his chin.

Romana (or Romanadvoratrelundar) was a rare Time Lord companion on the Doctor’s adventures, and (even rarer) his academic superior. Initially haughty, she and the Doctor soon warmed to each other. The figurine depicts Romana in her second incarnation, played by Lalla Ward, clad in her voluminous scarf and coat (echoing the Doctor’s own iconic outfit).

The Curator & Romana Box Set is going to be solicited in the January Diamond PREVIEWS catalogue, and will be available direct from HeroCollector.com or your favourite retailer in March 2020.

The box set joins Hero Collector’s ongoing range of 1:21 scale Doctor Who figurines, which explore aliens, monsters, robots, humans and Doctors from over five decades of classic science fiction TV.

Fans and collectors should stay tuned for further details about Hero Collector’s upcoming Doctor Who Time Lords box sets and others including Daleks and companions.

    I wonder with Hero Collector saying their new series of time lord sets dalek sets and companion sets I wonder whether or not we would be able to subscribe to this…after all it is a new series of doctor who figurines box sets? If this was to sort of replace the collection then it would give those who don’t want to go on a way out as that would “officially” be the end of that collection.Then Hero Collector takes over and those who want more can carry on with the box sets etc. Just my opinion but it makes sense in a roundabout way.Would appreciate any comments on this.what you all reckon? But no bad argumentative messages at all please

      Not a bad idea to be able to subscribe to a specific set of figures like this. Especially if it’s going to be an ongoing set. Even if the main figures do continue on beyond 180 (and hopefully they will) I think quiet a lot of people would be interested in subscribing to this or other sets individually from the main range. That would also give eaglemoss an idea of the potential number of sets they could produce. For example they could say subscribe to six sets or 12 and see what interest it generates. A very sensible idea.

    The curator figure is okay but it would have seemed better to have released the Mary Tamm version of Romana with Lalla. Pirate Planet outfit with Captains Guard rifle please 😀

      Neill, could you possibly get past the Torchwood License because Jack, Gwen, Ianto, Tosh, Weevils, Blowfish and Yvonne were in Doctor Who? And just do figurines of those characters?

      They are different licences. The likes of gwen and Luke were created for those specific shows, Jack is slightly different as he started in who but even then you could only do figures from those particular who stories of Jack not of him from his torchwood stories.

    I suppose something which could be done in a similar vein to this is a unit family 2 pack series:
    Brig and Liz Shaw
    Yates and Jo Grant
    Benton and Harry Sullivan
    Kate and Osgood

      It’s weird seeing conversations I’ve had in the office being replicated like this. We have ideas all the time, loads more than this. Some ideas land, most crash and burn. There are tons of reasons why things end up as figurines and some do not. I love the speculation, but please don’t be disappointed if what you think we should do doesn’t appear in the collection.

      Absolutely not, I love speculating so don’t worry Neil, I love this collection, I’ve been speculating that one day character might do 2013 cybermen figure and we’re nearly at 2020!

    Phew, so now we’ve got:

    Standard Issues
    Rare Dalek Issues
    Special Issues
    Bonus Issues
    Mega Issues
    Companion Sets
    Console Issues
    and finally…
    Time Lord Sets

    I’m very grateful the collection has came this far, even though I’m struggling to keep track of them all, as well as finding enough space to display them!

      Worried I have missed something, what is the difference between specials and bonus issues?

    • Jordan9364

      December 4th, 2019 - 7:31pm

      Bonus issues are basically the two Daleks that are “online exclusives”, and I think the standard K-9 is counted as a bonus too because of this same reason, even though labelled as being a Special Issue on the cover.

    Instead of putting Romana II with the curator they could’ve put both Romana’s together and the Curator could’ve put him with the General from day of the Doctor

      Both male and female Generals are going to be released together, I think. I wonder if we could get Ohila in this collection? I know Sisterhood of Karn aren’t really Time Lords but they’re related and I feel a member would be welcome in the collection, either new or classic series.

      I know it’s difficult, because fan brains are wired a certain way, but please try to be happy for what something is, not be unhappy for what something isn’t.

      Thats a great philosophy. I,m going with that from now on. Either that or i,ll stay mute.

      That sounds like such an obvious attitude to have Neil, it’s the way I look at things, but others will always find it difficult to get beyond a “but that’s not right” attitude. I’ve just bought and read master pieces , a charity collection of master stories. Now the first story takes the viewpoint that the war chief was the master, personally I don’t agree as Terrance dicks’ timewyrm book clearly indicates he wasn’t the master. Thing is is doesn’t spoil the book for me. In fact the story is quite good. I just think, interesting idea, then move on. I have friends though who would be incandescent over it! These two figures look great and that is all that matters

      They record their lines separately for Big Finish. Have you ever seen them together in one of those cast group photos they publish?

      It is true that Tom and Lalla do not record together. They have to record separately.

      The only such photo I know of like that is a photoshop montage (the one with John Leeson and Matthew Waterhouse).

      Does it matter? You only ever seem to focus on negative things Bobby. A lalla and Tom set, and instead of being happy you have to be negative

      Ergon the series 12 negative comments have already started. I’m going to try not to read them but it’s the unjustified comments that get to me. I agree not all of series 11 stories were great but that’s an argument that can be levelled at every series of who all the way back to 1963. My problem is just the unpleasantness of the comments linked to the horrendous personal attacks on the actors and production people something which has also taken place for decades. Personally I thoroughly enjoyed Jodie’s first year and think her second looks great.

    • The Ergon

      December 9th, 2019 - 5:22pm

      I also enjoyed some of Series 11 but for series 12 i,m keeping well out of it if last seasons are anything to go by. The season wasn,t flawless by a long chalk but it did have its fair share of enjoyable moments. The usual voices will come out of the woodwork once again to personally attack the actors etc, as you say, rather than deconstruct each episode in a positive light. Just wait till spyfall part one has aired, you,ll find it difficult not to want to wade into the arguments. Not me. On first viewing i,m just going to watch in awe and soak up the spectacle and look out for any future potential figures/ Figurines.

      Actually ergon you’re right. I’ll happily watch and take from it what pleases me. But you’re right, it’ll just upset me to read the usual suspects rants so yeah, won’t read any comments, won’t even leave any comments. If the vote page is there I’ll vote then come out immediately. It’s sad I have to do that.

    Are there certain figures that can’t be made due to certain rights? Just in general, not just time lords?

      The Kandyman has long been one that most licensees have given a swerve to after the CEO complained to the BBC when The Happiness Patrol was going out 31 years back (you’ll find various discussions with n the internet about that – including some on here). Also, rumour has it, any ‘new’ characters in the 1996 TV Movie (so, no Grace, Chang Lee etc) are tricky because the rights to those characters are shared between the BBC and Universal. Also, some cases where they can’t get an actor to sign off on a product (long rumoured that Eric Roberts would not permit his likeness for any Who figures, toys etc of his Master – don’t actually know if that’s true and he has recently started doing Big Finish) or they cannot track down who is looking after a deceased actor’s estate (like Edward Brayshaw who played the War Chief). For years, the writers of the Yeti stories were quite tough customers (because they felt the BBC had taken licensing liberties in the past I think) but they have passed away now I believe and things seem to have softened a bit with their estate.
