This Special Edition of Doctor Who Figurine Collection looks at the magnificent TARDIS console that made its first appearance in the 20th-anniversary adventure!

For the first two decades in the Doctor Who’s series, the TARDIS control room and the style were “redecorated” several times, but the main console remained relatively the same (with minor alterations). The 20th anniversary was a perfect time to introduce a new console that reflects the interior of the revamped control room from the previous multi-Doctor celebration “The Three Doctors”. “The Five Doctors” (1983) episode stepped further and brought a completely new control room and console, including the changed shape of the console for the first time since the Doctor Who began.

The Tardis Console Model: The Five Doctors, made from a high-quality polyresin, meticulously recreates every button, switch, and panel. It was carefully hand-painted to bring to life the consol that served three Doctors until it was retired in 1993 adventure Dimensions in Time.

The Tardis Console Model comes complete with a magazine detailing this console’s place in history, its functionality and use in the adventures. We look at the making of the ever-changing TARDIS console that appeared in the series from 1983 to 1993.

    The 5th Doctor console arrived today 🙂

    I’m really pleased to finally have the Five Doctors tardis console in my collection.
    The detail is really nice and it looks great next to the season 15 console.

    Thank you Eaglemoss for releasing this model, you’ve made this fan really happy

    Had my console today rather please a bit put off that three sides have lost the hexagonal patterning to some degree fortunatelt the other three sides look fine when you study it head on… am wondering if the previous console is ever going to be in stock again. Not sure if the website ‘Notify me’ system is working though

      age makes no difference, a 10 year old when first seeing this will be 47 now and they probably love it just as much, just buy it if you want it regardless of how old you are.

      Well I’m 40 and I can’t wait.

      Got email today and delivery is through DPD.
      I thought it was gonna be the werewolf too but my subscription stuff comes via Royal Mail.

      With this and Season 26 coming in 2 weeks (or less hopefully via Zoom) it is a lovely time to be a Whovian.

      I first saw this console when I was a kid and when my console comes in the post tomorrow it will be the same kid now disguised as a 42 year old opening the box and looking in wonder at his favourite console at last!

    I think I’ve noticed a mistake on the cover. If you look at the console panel to the left of the screen, it looks like there’s a circular bit phasing through the panel. I think it’s an error.

      Yep and a few hovering red lines in the same area with four misaligned buttons coming onto the edge of the panel. Well spotted.

    I’m guessing (hoping) that people who subscribe to the specials will get the two new consoles automatically- as with the last one.

    We didn’t get the bonus Daleks automatically- but we did get the bonus K9. Confused?

      I didn’t get the last one and I subscribe to the specials I thought they were a separate line?

    • dazzleshell

      December 25th, 2019 - 5:52pm

      Subscribers don’t get the consoles as it is indeed a seperate line and is exclusive to website orders and also available from Forbidden Planet.

      When the last one came out I did get an email with a discount code though because I was a subscriber to the normal range.

      December 26th, 2019 - 11:31am

      Thanks, guys, but I genuinely did get the console without ordering it. K9 too. I’ll check with customer service as I definitely want these consoles!

    So beautiful and so grateful we’ve finally got this.

    But (I hate to say it) the central column lets down the rest of the sculpt, which is perfect – that solid white bone structure, and the “glass” column part with the plastic gob at the top.

    Reply
    • Daz

      December 21st, 2019 - 12:16pm

      That structure inside the column is really hard to reproduce given that the original all looks like Perspex and was really intricate so I can understand why they did this.
      I made a 3D printed version of this console for the 5″ scale and left that part to last, I made a simplified version from Perspex rods and plastic a bit like Dapol did with their 5 sided console and it works really well.

      Also the dimple on the top of the transparent case is a bit of a shame as I found something for mine which was didn’t have one but again it’s fine I can look past that.

    • kaospheric

      December 21st, 2019 - 8:13pm

      I totally get that, and I feel like a total jerk moaning about it, because it’s an otherwise beautiful sculpt.

    • Daz

      December 21st, 2019 - 11:38pm

      It is rather beautiful I agree, I wish the inside structure could have been clear plastic or something like that to make it even better maybe it’s because we have never had a proper version of this console (not even a Character Options version) we just want it to be perfect I guess.
      I moan a fair bit myself about some things when I first see them lol, some things I don’t like I end up loving once I see it in person.

    • Bobby Davros

      December 23rd, 2019 - 1:31pm

      I’ll be painting that column partially silver to mimic transparency (if the lid comes off again)

    Eaglemoss site says delivery for December 2019 but FB says February, do Eaglemoss usually have things ship ages before places like FP get them in?

      The cover is courtesy of Gavin Rymill, who’s also provided the art and words inside the magazine too. It’s from his computer models that we make the consoles. He’s a genius.

      Hi Neil,
      I should have recognised his touch in the Gallifrey scene.
      Yes Gavin’s work on the collection has been fantastic.
      The ‘Terry Nation Army’ series of videos he produces are absolutely fascinating too and I really recommend anyone to subscribe to them if they are interested in Dalek history at all.

      I didn,t look on there, so why not on Eaglemoss?, Are FP trying to get as many orders in first. I would have thought it better to wait for the discount. FP don,t always get them any earlier. Thats from personal past experience.

    • booboo

      December 20th, 2019 - 2:57pm

      solicitations go out to shops well before Eaglemoss ever put them on, its always been that way. FP tend to attract the more pick and choose buyer.

    • The Ergon

    😮 very excited! Lots coming out of Eaglemoss at the moment… I wonder if they’re trying to get as much in as possible before their license expires? Can’t imagine they wouldn’t want to renew it as there’s clearly a lot of interest in their lines and I can’t see why the BBC wouldn’t want it renewed. But that’s all a different story. Looking forward to these but there’s one console I would LOVE to have… Eleven’s first Tardis console. Please Neil, make it happen!!!
