Figurine Collection Magazine Issue 204 Navarino

Available to order while stocks last from www.forbiddenplanet.com

The Doctor Who Figurine Collection part 204 features a Navarino from the 1987 Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) adventure ‘Delta and the Bannermen’.

Shape-changing alien tourists, the Navarino used transformation arches to disguise themselves as humans and take in exotic Earth culture – such as Disneyland, or a holiday camp in Wales. Their true form resembled giant purple starfish, with a warbling voice and extremely low stamina.

The Seventh Doctor and Mel tagged along, only for their spacefaring tour bus to run into the intergalactic criminals called the Bannerman, who killed all the Navarino on board. The Bannerman were searching for the refugee Delta, who was fleeing genocide with her child – fortunately, the Doctor was able to protect her, and she was resettled on Earth.

    Just been advised the price is going up by £1 per issue from this issue. Not a surprise, but unwelcome nevertheless. For the price they need to find a better way of sending these out – fed up with receiving crumpled and creased magazines.

      Yes, booboo, I had a subscription email just after midday showing my revised direct debit payments schedule up to the proposed issue 220 – together with an explanation that “due to increased production costs”, the standard price is increasing to £10.99 per issue from 204 and my premium subscription will be £11.99 per issue.

      Yes, I was thinking that too. I’ve been collecting since issue 1 – like many others I’m sure – and really would like to complete the collection. But if there are any further price increases I’d have to seriously consider my subscription.

      I still think i,d collect these to the end now. Theres a new horror collection from eaglemoss starting seotember and i,m tempted to collect some of those.now i,m not sure of the scale of those but they are up for £20.99 on hmvs site. As long as they keep this collection going and sate most of us with items we want and keep quality in check, then i don,t mind a small increase.just not too often.

    Couldn’t remember this creature in the DatBM episode, so I went back to watch it again. I estimate that it had about 10s of screen time (probably why I didn’t remember it).

    I do like it when Eaglemoss comes up with a real obscure creature. Well done guys & gals.

    The US site just added some Comic Con previews including this issue along with #202, 203, and #205 – the Mutt which was an unexpected surprise!

      No reason why Eaglemoss can’t do one of the Cleaners but it would have to be a special, because of its size.
      While where on the subject of Cleaners I’d like to see them do the Third Doctor as a cleaner.
