Figure Set: 5th Doctor & Masters Tardis

Action Figure Collectors Set: 5th Doctor Castrovalva

Due 20th August 2012 Price £19.99

Contents:
1 x Post-regeneration Fifth Doctor action figure.
1 x Shrunken figure accessory.
1 x Master’s TARDIS as a Stone Column.

The newly regenerated Fifth Doctor escapes with his companions back to the TARDIS. Suffering from post-regeneration trauma, he only narrowly manages to save the ship from destruction as it plunges back to Event One, the hydrogen in-rush that preceded the creation of the universe.

He then seeks sanctuary in the peaceful domain of Castrovalva, only to discover that it is an illusory, dimensionally paradoxical trap set for him by the Master with the unwilling aid of a kidnapped Adric.

The Doctor eventually wins the day by enlisting the help of the Castrovalvan people who, although also part of the Master’s creation, are nevertheless able to exercise free will.

The Master’s TARDIS
Whilst on the planet Traken the Fourth Doctor discovers that the Master, his long time nemesis, is trying to take control of a complex Traken bio-electronic power known as ‘The Source’. The Source would allow the Master unparalleled power, and the ability to regenerate his dying body. When the Master’s TARDIS is destroyed by the power feedback of The Source it is revealed he has another and thus he escapes to encounter the Doctor again. Their next encounter finds the Master’s TARDIS, with its fully functional Chameleon Circuit, disguised first as a Police Box and latterly on the planet Logopolis, as a sandstone Doric column. The Master’s TARDIS stayed in this favoured form during several encounters with the Fifth Doctor, before changing once again.

The Masters Tardis
Collection grows… Only a horse-box, fireplace, Concorde, iron maiden and several others to go!

Will you be buying this set?…

    So three years after release two of these have turned up in my local forbidden planet for £19.99 each, with one having the figures packaged in backwards for some reason. Question is, is that a good deal and do I get it?

    Does anyone else agree they should do this with a statue of liberty building with small doctor,river,rory and amy?

      And because the statue itself is 30 meters, they could make it 12 inches(90cm) and the mini figures could be 2cm!

    I have two stupid questions related to this, 1) Which set does the grandfather clock TARDIS belong to?, and question 2) Does the grandfather clock TARDIS open up?

    I want the Master in his traditional outfit but CO say they won’t make it as it would cost too much and the fact it would only be one release.
    From Kings Demons the Masters collar was silver, gold in previous stories. So they could get at least two releases. Even make a rotocast Iron Maiden Tardis.

      I dont like that incarnation of the tardis. All it does is just stand there and I might as well sell it to someone who actually wants that NON-action figure

    i don’t think i will get this as i already have the 5th doctor regenerated and they are very much the same. I also have the 4th doctor from season 18 so I would have 3 doctors in maroon if I bought this. I am planning on getting enemies of the 1st dr for my birthday and my stolen eath set is on its way!

    Before you all jump down my throat, I have nearly all the original series releases models on shelves at home and I LOVE them. Brilliantly moulded, great sets. However… This is just getting lazy and cheap. How many more daleks for instance can they possibly con us out of spending our money!! Try doing something new! Even when the pyramids of mars set comes out its TWO mummies repainted. And just wait until they release the same old pyramids fourth doctor in a set with Sutekh with his mask on…cos you all know they’ll do it. Come on guys!

      Yes he does. I have it, it’s great.

      You gonna buy it online or in-store at forbidden planet ? I recommend instore, just incase of quality-control.

      I don’t think theres an FP in Texas :/ but if there’s a problem, knowing how FP is nice i’m pretty sure that if there is a problem with the quality they’ll handle it, plus the 4th is my fav doctor I haven’t seen all of the era but its fantastic!

    • McGann is the Doctor

      September 18th, 2012 - 12:00pm

      My favourites of his era are Creature from the Pit/Destiny of the Daleks, Androids of Tara, The Ark in Space, Genesis of the Daleks, Nightmare of Eden, Masque of Mandragora Seeds of Doom and the Ribos Operation was pretty good.

      Also, I love ALL of his 80s stories except for Keeper of Traken. 😛

      Me.

      I want the Master from the 80s and I want him in his proper outfit, as portrayed by Anthony Ainley !

      Also, I think they were going to release the Master from Planet of Fire in this set, so the Doctor was probably a last-minute replacement.

    Could have atleast given him the shoes, Fifth Doctor never had the Fourth Doctor’s boots.

    I totally would have bought this if they had changed the fourth Doctor’s sculpt, or if they’d done the Fifth Doctor in his cricket jumper from the scene where he gets changed. ❗

    This looks great in the box. I love figures in little boxes becuase if you want to keep it in the box they don’t take that much space.
