The playsets are in scale with the Doctor Who 3.75-inch action figures so you can create your own adventures or simply display your collection.

There are two Time Zone playsets to collect.

Cold War; 1983 – In the cold waters of the Southern Arctic Ocean a Russian nuclear submarine is returning from patrol. As the ‘Cold War’ between the Americans and Russians drags on, tensions run high as the crew constantly run missile launch simulation drills.

Also on board is a high ranking Russian scientist with a rapidly thawing block of ice – a block of ice which contains a mysterious creature.

When the creature revives, breaks loose and rampages through the ship, the Submarine loses all power and starts to sink, plunging deeper with every passing second.

The TARDIS materialises on board and, with mere seconds to spare, the Doctor saves the submarine but leaves it stranded and crippled 700 metres down. But that is the least of his worries when the Doctor realises they are up against one of his oldest and coldest enemies.

Cold War Time Zone Playset includes 1 exclusive Ice Warrior ‘Creature’ figurine. One supplied. For ages 5 years and over.

    Although the Ice Warrior figure out of it’s casing doesn’t look brilliant, the set itself looks great so I will look out for this.

    i really want this set. i think it would be great for scene recreations. the figure wasnt what i hoped for. i imagined the ice warrior ‘creature’ a bit like a frog. the head on it is comepletly wrong. what i hoped for was a swappable head on it so you could put the ‘creature’ head onto the armourd one but never mind. cant wait to get my hands on it

    Okay I have come to the decision that the ‘naked’ Ice Warrior is the most incorrect figure I have ever seen. Skaldak never looked like that, I’ll link a picture of what it should look like. I know, I shouldn’t be hating on it but honestly it looks nothing like it did in the episode!

      as i have said before i suspect that character just had drawings to go from and the figure and gone into production before the cgi on the episode was finished

    • Sam Bentley

      May 31st, 2013 - 10:49pm

      Yes, I imagine that was the case… you never know they might create a new version like they have with figures in the past.

    • Scott the Raptor

      May 31st, 2013 - 10:51pm

      I don’t mind that. The only thing I don’t like is that the unarmoured one has a pink mouth and the armoured has a green mouth. It won’t look like it’s the same creature. That’s not going to stop me from buying it though.

    • DWTODWFA

      May 31st, 2013 - 11:05pm

      I looks more like its an alien from Rings, on the Official BBC Doctor Who Website check the Rings of Akhaten monster/behind the scenes images (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/galleries/p017cbk9) and one of the first ones is a blue version of this figure which i suspect was the original Ice Warrior creature and then they decided to use CGI but CO obviously didn’t get sent the CGI version.

    This looks cool apart from the so called Ice Warrior (it’s wrong for so many reasons: wrong colour, no articulation, bad paint job and most obvious of all the creature inside the Ice Warrior suit was NOT humanoid)

    and the Tardis looks weird ❓

    On the naked one, the hands are huge, so they wouldn’t fit in the smaller hands on the armour.
