Dr Who Figurine Collection #146 sil

Available to order while stocks last from www.forbiddenplanet.com

Also available to order from www.shop.eaglemoss.com

This stunning 1:16 scale figurine of Sil features actor Nabil Shaban in his iconic costume. A separate cast of Shaban’s head was made so that the mask could be made from latex rubber. The heat in the studio meant the glue in the mask would soften, and to keep Shaban cool his face was sprayed with water. The creation of Sil was inspired by Isaac Asimov who had noted that aliens in science fiction were rarely water-based creatures.

Sil Figurine comes complete with a 20-page illustrated magazine featuring information about your figurine and an in-depth story of the man behind the monstrous Mentor, Nabil Shaban, talks about the process of transforming into the money-hungry alien Sil, and how the actor was determined to make him such a memorable creation.

      I always wondered how you pronounced sils strange ‘enjoyment’ laugh. Just treat yourself to a tin of peach slices in syrup now as a treat.
