Figurine Collection Magazine Issue 206 Borad

Available to order from www.forbiddenplanet.com

The Doctor Who Figurine Collection part 206 features Borad from the 1985 Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) adventure ‘Timelash’.

An old enemy of the Doctor, Borad was the all-powerful dictator of the planet Karfel. A brilliant but unethical scientist, Borad fused himself with reptilian tissue to increase his own lifespan, hiding his hideous mutations from his subjects with clones and technological trickery.

Borad used his Timelash technology to dispose of dissidents, sending them back in time to 12th century Scotland. His reign ended only once the Sixth Doctor revealed his evil deeds along with his true form, driving him into a fit of madness. Ultimately, Borad was hurled into his own Timelash and stranded in the distant past – where the Doctor thought he might have become the Loch Ness Monster!

    Lovely figure for the (in my opinion) best monster from Colin’s era.
    I really hope the range continues through the 13th series and beyond especially with the RTD news, but there’s hardly any more classic and new series figures that are standouts that I can think of.

      There’s many I can think of: Drahvin, chumblies, fish people, Axon monster, Kronos, krynoid, Kraal, fendahl, ogri, movellian, watcher, monarch, Android from the visitation, George from black orchid, mawdryn, malus, tractators, dragon monster from the caves of androzani, cryon from attack of the cybermen, cleaner robot from paradise towers, Kandyman (even though it will never happen) the nemesis statue, Gods of ragnorok, morganine, light. And some for the new series: Flood, human form of the Saturnyne, the dream lord, 42 burn with me monster, hoix, jaggerfess and the Lazarus monster (those two probably won’t happen), boneless, sandmonster (sleep no more). And those are just from the top of my head

      I’d like to see A peg Doll figurine which is a standout figure that hasn’t been made yet. The Ergon of course. Don’t know if Erato with ever get made but it’s pretty unique. A P-ting and Troll Doll would be great although rather small so would after be sculpted with another prop. Black guardian and White Guardian would be cool. Maybe A Menoptera or wingless Menoptera with a Dominator, Foamasi, Male Eldrad, Bus conductor robot from TGSITG, Heamavore, Cyberman droid and a Meglos Doctor with Specials of a Macra and Mara. Also maybe a few figures from Colony in Space and a Toy Robot, Clown and Billy bunter from Celestial Toy maker.

      September 29th, 2021 - 5:29pm

      Just remembered the Small robot from Wheel in Space aswell, would love that to be done. Maybe a Plasmaton, Kraag and a Stone of blood aswell.

      Coleman if Harrops can do it on such a small scale at the usual price now i don,t see why Eaglemoss can,t get cracking on one. I love all those choices you and Auton have listed. I,ve said it before but i wish they would do variant sets that way we could get all those Robots of death, three pegdolls(my favourite being the Amy pegdoll) and they could cover more Daleks and Cybermen quicker without touching the single releases. I mention the story figurine boxsets to get more from each even if they came as 2 packs. So yes to an masked Greel and Mr. Syn, Meglos Doctor and cactus, Ogri and Cailleach etc…Coleman i would love The Servo Robot from wheel. as for The celestial toymaker they could do joey and ‘Clara’. Billy wasn,t actually called ‘Bunter’ in the story only alluded to as the BBC couldn,t get permission from charles hamilton to use it as well as a few other fictional characters they were unable to use also if i remember reading somewhere.

      Speaking of fictional Characters ergon, I really enjoyed the Mind robber and I’m sure Eaglemoss could get a few more figures out of that story, like the clockwork Robot for one.

    • Auton

      September 29th, 2021 - 9:43pm

      There more than enough figures to go past 300, so fingers crossed they keep going until there all done. Boxsets would greatly help as well to get all the figures we want

    • the ergon

      September 30th, 2021 - 10:31am

      The only one that most want that Eaglemoss have said they cannot do is The Kandyman and i believe there were a few others. So unless Bassetts relent it will always be an incomplete collection for most fans Auton.

    • Coleman

      September 30th, 2021 - 11:08am

      Werent they having issues with the Taran wood beast and the Kraal to name but two?

    • the ergon

      September 30th, 2021 - 1:20pm

      I think the glass dalek was one, they did say they couldnt do the stained glass look justice and i think there were issues with the Taran wood Beast coleman. there was also a marvel figurine which had a clear see through effect which has been done recently which fans speculate it could open the door to other figurines being made in the Doctor who collection such as The Kassavin etc…

      September 29th, 2021 - 12:15am

      Now you’ve said that I can’t see it any other way!
      I always thought the Borad was a real mishmash: very good face prosthetic, flipper made by school kids using tissue paper and PVA glue, and then a last minute green eye paint job by someone who’d never used a paintbrush or seen an eyeball before (presumably because in the second recording block the black eyeball reflected the studio?).

    • Dalekz

      September 29th, 2021 - 12:40pm

      Rex Farrel, yes He’s got one of the best prosthetic face masks in classic Who it’s really quite creepy the way it’s offset to his real face and he can just about talk with his new mouth.
      The flipper is lazy and spoils the look, I haven’t noiced the eye colour but I haven’t seen it for a while. The rubbish bag he’s waring is not great either but then he’s not getting out much so why dress up.

    • Rex Farrel

      September 29th, 2021 - 3:40pm

      Ha! I decided to give them a pass on the costume… It’s ok in the low light, and as you said, he doesn’t get many opportunities to be a fashionista. Take a look at his new eye-job in his last scene though – they haven’t even painted inside the lines! It really spoils the good work on the mask.

    Minor thing but I think that orange knob needs black around it and just the orange showing on the top. A small thing but i reckon it’d look better.

    Ah at last !! ‘Human’ half of the face doesnt look ‘quite right’ and I’m not sure about that large orange control – need to refresh my memory. However he is in his chair as hoped for and he is rather good and he is Sixth Dr’s era which is a rarity. As usual with the face a lot will depend how skilled a painter you get I think.

      They can do the specials to smaller scale as in the case of the Biomechanoid dragon so i cant see why not with this, though it could so easily be made in regular size and its one colour so should be lot esasier.

      Its been a while since we had a companion set announcement. I,d like Steven and Dodo from Toymaker. Maybe Clara, courtney and Danny pink with Twelfth would go down a treat, but Styggron,yes, i imagine, could turn up before 220.

    Really pleased that EM are adding the Borad to the collection. This is one of those villains that a number of fans have been requesting for a while now (including me). Good on EM for delivering. I watched Timelash not so long ago and it felt like it had all the ingredients in place, sets, some good villains etc but somehow failed to deliver and it came across as quite cheesy in the end..

    Now EM, how about the Terileptil Android?
