    I look forward to seeing Harrop do some more obscure monsters and characters

    Certainly one of the most…unfortunate alien designs in the show’s history, but still, the figure looks great.

      Why unfortunate?

      Take a good look at it. If you still can’t see it, you’ve a much more innocent mind than I.

      The unpainted sculpt looks even more ‘unfortunate’ than the green.

      To this day I still don’t see any great resemblance. I mean, it’s green with six arms and a cape.

      Looking forward to getting this figure, surprised that there hasn’t been any others of Alpha Centauri.

      Agreed. It seemed an almost certain choice for the 5″ classic range from Character.

      Eaglemoss are rumoured to be adding him to their Figurine Collection sometime later this year (‘between issue 102 and 105’ was mentioned somewhere IIRC). No official confirmation yet though.

      I’m surprised it hasn’t been produced already. It’s kind of an iconic Doctor Who creature.

      It’s not that iconic really and even if it was Eaglemoss save some iconic things for later to keep people buying.

      And (regarding Character) its not the sort of thing some parents want their children to look at.
