Character Options unveils a new Raft of B&M Doctor Who collectors’ sets for 2021

Character Options is delighted to announce its first new wave of Doctor Who action figure sets for 2021 with four new lines scheduled to arrive in B and M stores across the country in Mid-August.

This exciting launch will introduce two more action figure trios plus two additional special collectors’ packs for Dalek Fans. Each and every set of this detailed series will include highly detailed 5.5 inch scale figures featuring multiple points of articulation and come presented in the ‘heritage’ Doctor Who packaging with specially created insert artwork.

The sets in detail

07435 The Sensorites (1964) collector figure set

  • This Doctor Who Collectors set is a must have for all Doctor Who fans and collectors and includes a trio of detailed Doctor Who figures from the classic 1964 episode ‘The Sensorites’. The Sensorites were a terrific alien species with their telepathic abilities and peaceful overtures. Their appearance at the window towards the end of episode 1 must rate as one of the creepiest entrances of any alien in the show. Celebrating the episode fans will be able to enjoy a First Doctor figure, a Sensorite Action Figure with Probe Accessory plus an alternative Sensorite ELDER Action Figure with Probe Accessory. For the first time in a 3 figure pack we have a detailed insert card rather than bare white card.

07443 The Keys of Marinus collector figure set

  • Also from a classic episode of 1964 is The Keys of Marinus Collector Figure three figure Set. This Ian Chesterton Action Figure depicts one of The Doctors very first companions and is accompanied by not one but two Voord Warrior Action Figures with dagger accessory. The evil Voord Warriors of the Planet Marinus with its arid land and acid seas are extremely memorable because of their truly unique design and are replicated in this classic set. Again this comes with a detailed insert card.

07439 History Daleks #5 Power of the Daleks collector figure set

  • The Doctor Who Daleks’ Collector Sets have their very own fan base and to mix things up a little the next two sets are slightly out of order to give a more varied on shelf presence. So first up is Set #5 The Power of the Daleks Set, comprising of two highly detailed Daleks – The Silver Drone Dalek and Drone with Mutant Scoop Dalek.

07439 History Daleks #7 Day of the Daleks collector figure set

  • Finally, we jump one story forwards to the next decade to 1972’s ‘Day of the Daleks’ and The Daleks’ first foray into colour TV with Collector Set #7 which celebrates this four part story first shown in January of that year. In this set you’ll find the highly detailed Gold Supreme Dalek and Grey drone Dalek as seen in the episodes. Considered a classic among Doctor Who fans, this episode saw the Third Doctor and his companions Jo and U.N.I.T take on Time Travelling guerrillas, Ogrons and the Daleks, in a bid to avert World War III.

Al Dewar Character Options’ Creative Director said: “Once again we are delighted to be working with B and M in bringing a fresh new collection to the legions of fans. This substantial line up represents some of the finest early Doctor Who episodes and will be familiar to many from diehard fans to adults that spent their child hoods hiding behind the sofa at teatime!”
