Figurine Collection Magazine Junk Tardis Console #8

Available to order from www.forbiddenplanet.com and www.shop.eaglemoss.com

Trapped by the malevolent, extradimensional predator known only as “House”, the Eleventh Doctor was forced to construct a makeshift TARDIS. Built from the flotsam of House’s previous Gallifreyan victims, this “junk TARDIS” was a ramshackle engine with just three walls – and a highly irregular control console.

Lacking many of the traditional features of a TARDIS, such as its protective outer shell, this improvised time machine was highly unreliable and incredibly dangerous. It functioned only with the direct support of Idris – another victim of House, who served as a host for the matrix of the Doctor’s own TARDIS.

    I didn’t actually like this story (and trust me that’s rare for me) but wonder if I should still get it for completeness

      Treat yourself werewolf. You may change your mind in time about the story. the doctors wife isn,t an all time favourite of mine but its quirks and eccentric characters i liked and those scenes with Rory and Amy losing each other in the TARDIS and the idea of a sentient TARDIS work and quite moving at the end thanks to the excellent Suranne Jones.

      Mainly thanks to Surname Jones, I thought it was a cracking episode. I mentioned once before about her performance. Some of the Best acting I’ve seen in Dr Who.
      ( I love her robotic walking, could watch it all day)

      Some are already talking of a 13th weeping angel. Why not half and half as she s transforming that way at least you get some colour?

      Thank you, I think I will.
      There have been stories I’ve liked a lot more on a rewatch including Planet of the Ood and the Beast Below. On the other hand rewatching Planet of the Daleks made me like it less.

    I see it is on Eaglemoss store at £39.99.
    Guessing it won’t be in scale with normal Tardis consoles but more akin to the oversized Wooden console of Season 14.

    Hopefully we’ll get 9th/10th and 11th first console next.

    Be nice if the first console released (the Fourth Doctors) could be restocked too.

    Rani’s console the 3rd Dr’s as seen in The Three Doctors and the Master’s as seen in The Time Monster…(first time I saw the Dr’s and Master’s TARDISes in colour in 1972.) should complete the set for me. Can’t say I’m overly thrilled with this one although it’s a shade better than the 13th Dr.s.

    Very unexpected. However, I can see quite a lot of parts on that console that I daresay will end up getting snapped off when delivered

      Agree with you there. Spent about 5 hours trying to repair damaged Wooden Console after Eaglemoss sent a replacement which was even more damaged than original. Neither deliveries any good. These things need to be passed from fan to fan, rather than subject to warehouse,road, warehouse, road etc

      I picked up my wooden console on ebay for £4 as it’s top rail was smashed and the buyer had got a replacememnt. I did get all the parts too and managed to fix it so you would never know it was broken but it shows how delicate these can be clearly the package doesn’t help as much as it should…unless they are thrown about Ace Ventura style by all the delivery people.

    This looks brilliant!
    So now we’ve got a console that isn’t a standard Doctors console…hopefully we can get the Rani console
