Figurine Collection Magazine Special Edition #30 Cleaner Robot (Holding Image)

Watch out, the Doctor Who The Cleaner figurine is the next special edition to join the Doctor Who Figurine Collection!

Highly detailed in hand-painted resin, the Doctor Who The Cleaner Figurine models the looming, murderous robots of Paradise Towers, also known as the Cleaners. The residential complex of Paradise Towers promised peace and comfort to all its inhabitants. Unfortunately, the truth was far from that. In the wake of a terrible war, the residents devolved into feral gangs. For the Cleaners, the living humans still populating Paradise Towers were little more than litter in need of tidying.

The Doctor Who The Cleaner Figurine fully captures every detail of the machines that were more than malfunctioning janitors – they were controlled by Kroagnon, the Great Architect of Paradise Towers. Only the Seventh Doctor and Mel were able to uncover the mad architect and thwart his plans of returning to life.

Product features:

• Height: 12.5cm
• Length: 19.5cm
• Scale: 1:21
• Material: Hand-painted Resin ensures the highest level of detail

Part of our definitive collection of over 50 years of Doctor Who characters, the Doctor Who The Cleaner Figurine faithfully renders the dangerous machine in 1:21 scale. Like all figurine in the collection, the Doctor Who The Cleaner Figurine is accompanied by a profile magazine. Discover more collection quality figurines at our Doctor Who Figurine Collection.

    Wonder if this will ever come out in the UK now with what has happened?

    • booboo

      July 13th, 2022 - 12:58pm

      stock must be somewhere

    • prototype dalek

      July 13th, 2022 - 1:19pm

      I assume so, especially as you said previously EU/US customers have already had thier stock so one can guess this was stored in a warehouse to be released with the next 2 issues for subscriber’s and a couple weeks later put on their site.

      Would be nice to get this and the upcoming; now probably last 2 issues, though I assume current subscribers might get thier deliveries first (depending on administration) as at least that will get guaranteed sales on the mailing list.

      Or they will just list whatever they have all at once when it comes to selling stock. Though at the moment nothing is looking promising.

      I was tempted to buy the cleaner from bigbadtoystore in the US until i saw the $70 price. And thats before all shipping and vat costs. I imagine it will work its way onto some retail site eventually (if not from the shop))along with whatever was manuafactured before they shut down.

    • The ergon

      July 13th, 2022 - 4:44pm

      Apparently the 11th junkyard has sold out on bbts. A last minute desperate grab to get them whatever the cost it seems.

  • AxC

    May 17th, 2022 - 3:51pm

    Anyone got theirs yet? I saw on Twitter they’d been arriving, phoned Eaglemoss to chase and they were adamant they weren’t in yet and definitely hadn’t been sent out. If anything they got a bit huffy with me for suggesting otherwise.

    • booboo

      May 17th, 2022 - 4:08pm

      The ones you are seeing are most likely from people in the EU or the USA where they have arrived some time back.

      As far as i know no one the the UK has had one.

    • Pabs

      Strange how stock from China can reach the EU but not the UK

    • MJS

      July 13th, 2022 - 1:18pm

      Pabs, stock probably comes into the UK via EU, but something happened a while ago that cause issues with stuff getting through…….

    Ninth and tenth doctor console now up for pre order on the UK eaglemoss site, looks very nice too.

  • Zygon_invader

    Just received 206 & 207 wasn’t expecting that but very happy it’s like an early Christmas present

    • the ergon

      December 21st, 2021 - 2:43pm

      Those subscriptions are slowly getting through zygon invader but some already have their Raston and impaled cyberman from FP. I,m hoping they arrive in the next week.

    • Zygon_invader

      December 21st, 2021 - 6:19pm

      That’s good news ergon hopefully I will get 208 & 209 soon thank for letting me know

    • the ergon

      December 21st, 2021 - 6:37pm

      Your welcome. I got mine from FP. Borad should be any day now, got the Dalek today. Just waiting for Email on Issues 208/9. Fingers crossed.

    • The completionist

      December 21st, 2021 - 9:01pm

      Oh! I’m still waiting for 205,206 and 207 to appear on the em website. Hoping against hope that it won’t be much longer!!!

    • the ergon

      December 21st, 2021 - 11:11pm

      So fed up of waiting for the eaglemoss shop The completist. Joined the many who opt for the FP site which used to be a last resort, but up to now have proved more than reliable and the paint apps have so far been perfect. and with covid and all the Brexit Issues shall continue to do so. I hope things change next year. Merry xmas by the way.

    • The completionist

      December 22nd, 2021 - 7:38pm

      Yes I can understand that ergon. I’ve bought some items from fp myself just to get them in the bag! And they tend to be a bit cheaper too. Happy Christmas to you as well, and all dw fans everywhere.

  • Deputy Chief

    December 10th, 2021 - 5:45pm

    I’ve pre-ordered the ‘Paradise Towers’ cleaner robot. It’s a great design and I didn’t want to miss out on this superb figurine. I don’t buy many, but the handful I have bought have been ‘Special Edition’ releases.

    • Frustrated Deputy Chief

      July 11th, 2022 - 9:09pm

      Still waiting for the cleaner robot. One wonders if the U.K will actually get any?

  • bob hellier

    December 10th, 2021 - 2:40pm

    dr who magazine should be on sale now 9th dec wonder when it will be available

  • David Ridge

    December 10th, 2021 - 12:11pm

    After buying the Cyber controller on this throne, it reminded me of The Guardian on his throne from Colony in Space. Could Eaglemoss produce this as a figurine?

    • Doug Who

      December 10th, 2021 - 7:07pm

      That’s a great idea!

      Or they could do the IMC robot from ‘Colony in Space’ as a special too…lots to choose from in that story!

    • the ergon

      December 10th, 2021 - 11:55pm

      I would much prefer eaglemoss start individual storysets . That way we could get things like the guardian the priest and Uxaerian warrior in one set. That way they could finish these single releases at 120 (lost Interest since you couldn,t get these on a fortnightly basis). Also we could get the IMC machine as a special somewhere down the line. I,m sure there are people out there who might agree with this idea.

    • the ergon

      December 10th, 2021 - 11:57pm

      I for one would buy all of these in individual storysets if the cost wasn,t too extortionate.

    • Doug Who

      December 11th, 2021 - 5:09pm

      I always liked the idea of a series of villain/monster double sets similar to the Time Lord series, such as Kraal/Android, Drahvin/Chumblie, Collector/Gatherer, even Khalid/Plasmaton, and inevitably, Skagra/Krarg!

      Story themed sets would be good too.

    • the ergon

      December 11th, 2021 - 7:47pm

      So take note Mr.Corry.

    • Doug Who

      December 12th, 2021 - 5:54pm

      That sounds a wee bit exigent Ergon! 😉 I’m sure Neil and all are busy with lots of new figurine ideas. I might imagine sorting the rights for monster/villain double packs could possibly be nightmarish!

      I’m just hoping the collection lasts long enough for a you-know-what! The Mutt was my second most wanted and it is an absolute triumph!

    • The ergon

      December 13th, 2021 - 11:28am

      Yes the word please does make a difference doug.,less brusque. I,d quite like to own a mutt someday. Having to resort to FP at the moment for preorders.

    • Doug Who

      December 13th, 2021 - 8:10pm

      I had forgotten you had cancelled your subscription Ergon! Hope FP come through for you. I kept mine which I’ve had from day one, mainly for the Daleks but also the knowledge they’ll turn up…eventually!

      It has been really frustrating at times, with damaged figures and all the recent delays, but I try to balance that with there are more important things to worry about in the world! And also I love this collection!

      Good luck with the Mutt. It really is one of the best so far! Maybe Ebay is an option with this one? I’ve often found bargains for customising and you might be lucky 🙂

    • The ergon

      December 13th, 2021 - 8:20pm

      I missed a package the other day doug, s hoping its the navarino, borad and recon dalek. Apparently some have been recieving or expecting these from fp. Ill be glad when the online shop is back in front again. The problem with fp is if you get an inferior or damaged figurine, you cant always get a replacement so its just a refund. And there are no mutts still available on their site.

    • Doug Who

      December 13th, 2021 - 10:22pm

      Well that’s one advantage of FP Ergon. I hope it is the figures you’re waiting for.

      No idea when subscribers will receive the Borad and the Dalek! Good sign that if you are getting those at least they are in the country. The Eaglemoss shop seems to be the last priority but to be honest, I have no real idea what’s going on, so I wait…patiently!

      Sure the Mutt figurine will be in the Moss shop eventually.

    • the ergon

      December 13th, 2021 - 11:03pm

      The Borad and recon Dalek have been spotted in one of FPs megastores in london .Someone posted photos. So FP do have them.

  • David

    December 10th, 2021 - 9:23am

    So… They made a huge Cleaner, but the Servo Robot is a small one, as is the Quark.
    I despair at their choices….

  • Deputy Chief

    December 9th, 2021 - 5:46pm

    I only ever buy the odd ‘Special Edition’ ones as they are much in size with the 5 inch character option figures. I’ve only got a War Machine, Dalek Emperor, a Kroton, K1 Giant Robot, Drathro and Face of Boe. But I’m definitely going to try and get the robotic cleaner from one of my favourite McCoy stories ‘Paradise Towers’. I really like this particular figurine!

  • CleanerRobotEnthusiast1987

    December 8th, 2021 - 11:30am

    I’m so so happy I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this
    Can’t wait for October when it’s available to buy over here 🙁

  • Sav

    December 8th, 2021 - 9:57am

    YEA love it. Though now I look at it I’m not sure putting the third appendage in the centre below the shoulders is the best idea. Makes me reconsider that expression on his face.

  • JRT!

    December 8th, 2021 - 5:25am

    Still waiting for my Whomobile,lol! But I do love this one too.

  • Crosby

    December 7th, 2021 - 10:08pm

    Coleman if the main Range finishes then the specials will Finish too

    • Gareth Pugh

      December 8th, 2021 - 6:35am

      Crosby, I’m not sure about that, Their Star Trek ships partwork finished at 180 issues a year or two ago, but since then they have released a ton of further specials, mini-series of models and further Trek items via their ship. If BBC Studios are agreeable, the license to make DW models and figurines might well continue, just not via a regular (well, was regular!) magazine format.

    • Coleman

      December 8th, 2021 - 10:39am

      I’m not sure about that Crosby. Theirs been alot of debate over the years when the Subscription will end. But as for the Specials. Box sets, Megas etc theirs no reason why they can’t continue. (Two different things).

  • Dalekz

    December 7th, 2021 - 7:31pm

    I want this so much!!!!!
    That thing scared the jelly babies out of me as a kid!

  • The ergon

    December 7th, 2021 - 7:29pm

    I just wish i had the time and patience to customise a chief caretaker or a couple of kangs to go alongside this but i hate making human legs. Maybe Timelord Tim or doug who could add a few to their colourful collections

    • Doug Who

      December 8th, 2021 - 8:20pm

      Give us a break Ergon! 🙂 I haven’t even finished the Kandyman yet then there’s two specials I want to start.

      Not sure I would attempt a human character. I much prefer the monsters and anyway likenesses would be a nightmare. I did make a bust of the Collector a few years ago but that was a bigger scale.

      An Eaglemoss Chief Caretaker figurine would be good down the line however.

    • the ergon

      December 8th, 2021 - 9:39pm

      Ha! Ha! i half expected that response Doug and deserved it just for the cheek. If i could crack those legs and arms id have a go myself but like you i,d be constantly doubting myself when it came to physical likeness. I,d have to see whats left when eaglemoss call it a day on these. Still got 2 for mould which are looking now like early 2022 and ill finish that kandyman or it will finish me. One of us is going down thats for sure.

  • Sons of Skaro

    December 7th, 2021 - 7:14pm

    I’ve been waiting a long for them to release this one.
    Shame it doesn’t come with the refuse unit at the back with the resi’s slippered feet sticking out.

  • The completionist

    December 7th, 2021 - 6:42pm

    This looks great!!! Is there any info on the likelihood of further extensions to the main series of figurines? If there won’t be an extension will the megas, specials, consoles, tardis exteriors and companion sets continue?

    • Coleman

      December 7th, 2021 - 7:13pm

      Should imagine the specials will continue because their two different things.

  • Dav McKenzie

    December 7th, 2021 - 6:35pm

  • James T

    December 7th, 2021 - 6:21pm

    YES! I’ve been hoping for one of these. They look great.

  • MJS

    December 7th, 2021 - 4:46pm

    I’m not a keen fan of these. The only one I have is the Paul Condon tribute figure. However, I think this looks splendid!!! I might get this too

  • bryan

    December 7th, 2021 - 4:06pm

    This looks amazing. Like the 13th Doctor TARDIS,you can see the love and care that goes I to this range.

    I always wanted one of these. Tried cutting it out of polystyrene block. What a mess

    This looks superb.

  • Mac

    Shame the original prop was half destroyed.

    Christmas has come early with this lovely design – looks so simple I wonder why it is arrving so late in the collection but definately a must have!

  • prototype dalek

    December 7th, 2021 - 2:37pm

    Probably one of the best things to ever be made! Love the design of the figure

  • Doug Who

    December 7th, 2021 - 1:11pm

    That’s another fantastic figurine! Really wonderful sculpt.

    Lovely to have another Seventh Doctor special. These characters would never be done by anyone else I don’t think, and shows why this collection continues to be so special!

    • The ergon

      December 7th, 2021 - 1:17pm

      Next best thing to your kraag doug.

      Don’t mention the Krarg!! It’s just too painful to think about!

  • Popplewick

    Odd that theyve got this on preorder and yet Mutt and Navarino STILL aren’t there.

  • Colemam

    December 7th, 2021 - 1:07pm

    Looking good Eaglemoss. I bet that’s made your Christmas ergon.

    Excellent replica. Loathed the story first time round but I like various stills of Sylvester and these robots. This is a nice one though.

    One ive most wanted. At last. Next up the gods of ragnaeok please.

    • The ergon

      December 7th, 2021 - 1:59pm

      Mind you i cant see it being another 7th special, in that case either the malus through church wall, magma creature, kroll or garm.

      Waiting for a price discount or some new single figurines to go on site to cover all the postage.
