Robert Harrop K9 From The Invisible Enemy

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

From ‘The Invisible Enemy’ 1977

“There is no need for gratitude. I am an automaton.”

The Invisible Enemy is where we are first introduced to the character of K9, where he is serving as assistant to Professor Marius.

A dog-shaped robot, invented and built by the Professor himself, K9 has encyclopaedic knowledge, vast computer intelligence and a powerful laser weapon concealed in his nose. Marius gives K9 to the Doctor as a parting gift, where he goes on to appear alongside the Doctor in over 20 storylines.

  • A Limited Edition Hand painted figurine / statue from the Doctor Who Collection.
  • Designed and Sculpted in Shropshire, England by Robert Harrop Designs.
  • Traditionally Hand Sculpted by Mike Rodgers.
  • Official BBC License. The figurine has been approved by the Doctor Who television production team at the BBC.
  • Approximately 3.75 inches (95mm) tall.
  • A Limited Edition of Only 250 Figurines Worldwide.
  • Solid pewter tail for strength.
  • Individually hand numbered with a unique number on the base.
  • Comes complete in a presentation box with information card and a Certificate of Authenticity!

Robert Harrop Designs have been creating collectable hand painted figurines for over 30 years and have gained a well earned reputation of high quality and accuracy of detail.

Their extensive portfolio includes Thunderbirds, Camberwick Green, Beano Dandy and 2000AD to name but a few. A portfolio that is extremely nostalgic and very British, so it was no surprise that Doctor Who would be the next project that they wanted to embrace into their studios!

In partnership with the BBC, they have meticulously hand sculpted a range of 1:12 scale, hand cast and hand painted Doctor Who figurines, each made to strict Worldwide Limited Editions.

As a mark of provenance, each Limited Edition figurine will be numbered with a unique Edition Number and will come packaged in a presentation box with an Information Card and Certificate of Authenticity!

    I wish they’d release one figure a month over wise this collection could take years and as I’m in my 50s I might not be here to complete it

      I am a little younger, but the issue I have is that I bought every figure up to Xmas 2016 from a physical shop. It closed and now I have missed many as RH severed their runs by 66 percent or more and they sell out far too quickly. There are way more than 250 collectors out there.

      Start getting them early nights in and save the late ones for the preorders, you might then make your centenary.

      It’s been confirmed that a Solonian Mutant is next, followed by a Clockwork Soldier from The Mind Robber as the Christmas piece and Morbius should be coming early next year.

      I was thinking of getting the K.9 but I couldn’t exactly justify the price of it unfortunately. I have a tendency to cherry pick with the Harrop pieces – The Mutt and The Clockwork Soldier are really appealing choices for me. Fingers crossed they produce a monochrome edition of the Clockwork Soldier

      Well I guess they had to do something different. When will we get that ‘first look’ is the question now then. Thanks for that Mr. P. That has made my day.

    Do they take money straight away or in 8 weeks time. I am on the cusp of a payment card change.

      when did you get yours then?

      I’ve got all of the figurines to date & one thing I can guarantee is they are top quality.

      Your crazy!!! I have all the figurines too and I can guarantee that none of them are poor quality!! They are amazing and worth every penny!! This just sounds like a justification from someone who wants it but can’t afford it and is telling himself that it’s poor quality to make himself feel better about not getting it.
      Buy it…. you won’t be sorry!

    I,m torn with this. I usually only collect the monsters from Harrop but with eaglemoss releasing their cheaper version and the Mega model also from ‘The Invisible enemy’ on its way in december, I might be inclined to pass. Its a lovely collectors piece nevertheless.

    Is it to scale with the Tom Baker figure, or larger?

      Both claim to be in 1:12 scale so I would assume yes.

    • Mr P

      There is a photo on the Robert Harrop website of K9 next to the Tom Baker figure which gives a good idea of scale.
