Harrops Future Figurine – The Ancient One

From their twitter page

Here is the first fully painted image of the Ancient One Haemovore from the 1989 Doctor Who episode The Curse of Fenric. He will be a Limited Edition of only 225 pieces and will go live on theri website for pre-ordering from Friday 25th June.

The next figurine after that will be William Hartnell, he has not yet been painted but they will be posting images of the completed piece very shortly. This will be pencilled in for an August release. After that Mike is currently working on 3 sculpts from the same episode to hopefully round off 2021. News on those when they have all been completed so they can show them off as a set.

    Only a few weeks to go now. I wish they would do that terileptil Android as a first.

      Yes I’d also like to see Harrop tackle the Terileptil Android. I think it could be terrific!

      The Android and Terileptil leader would be good. I know Dan mentioned on their site the Leader was coming soon, but that was two years ago?

      Hartnell next then trio from the same story to be announced – could be Terileptil Leader, Android and Android dressed as Death?

    • Coleman

      June 11th, 2021 - 8:06pm

      Ergon, the next figure is William Hartnell. But after that Dans mentioned the next 3figures this year will be from the same Episodes. Any Guesses?

      Hopefully, Terileptil leader, Android and Peter Davison.

      I only bang on about it as ‘the visitation’ is my joint favourite 5th doctor story, alongside androzani elevated more by john savidents comical scenes as the squire. ‘I think its fair to say we are under attack’. Brilliant.

      Coleman i,d like to think warriors of the deep, greatest show or even the happiness patrol if true, though we can count out ‘the kandyman’ i think. What about you? New series perhaps?

    • The ergon

      June 11th, 2021 - 8:43pm

      Glad its the hartnell doctor. I can miss that one and save those pounds for those b and m figure sets. Daleks, sensorites, voord et al, i,ll be ready and stairfoot bound.

      Maybe they could complete pyramids with the sarcophagus, a mummy and a different sutekh variation. Preferably the one with the smoking feet to complete that story. Or how about from ‘The Five doctors’ or ‘The trial of a timelord’. You,ve really got me thinking now coleman.

      Anonymous. I hope you,re onto something with those three choices. How cool would that be?

    • Coleman

      June 11th, 2021 - 10:01pm

      In think it’ll definitely be classic figures ergon. The new series doesn’t seem to sell has well for Harrops. The last new series figure they did was the sycorax which was around for months before selling out. Even Booboo mentioned that Harrops had found their audience with the Classic stuff. Would be funny if it turned out to be Omega, 5th Doctor and you guessed it the Ergon!

      The Greatest show you mentioned could be a possibility, theirs plenty of Characters from that episode to make three figurines. If the “Gods” were made as just one figurine. Maybe a Chief Clown and the bus conductor could be added. (I quite like the half buried robot). In future I wonder if companions are totally out of the question from Harrops)?

      It’s just come to me who the Kerblam men reminded me of.
      The bus conductor from TGSITGalaxy

      Would love A destroyer of worlds with Morgana and the 7th Doctor.

      Maybe colin and peters eras need a little more representation. They could easily pluck three enemies from trial. Drathro, sil and a vervoid which has been mooted as a possibility. Greatest show i,d like them to do but i am biased as its my joint seventh doctor favourite with curse which is now slightly covered. They could do companion pieces but like doctors i wouldn,t be interested as the style wouldn,t be to my taste. Are you purchasing big chiefs lifelike master and troll doll. I might make my first purchase for that alone. Regret not getting the matt and clara which are sold out and unsurprisingly i noticed you have on your shelves with capaldi. I bet they require dusting regulary on their stands being material.

      Yes dustings a nightmare ergon. Keep upstairs windows closed most of the time so only dust about every six months. (Still takes awhile though). Only ones I havnt on pre-order at the moment, funnily enough is the Master and Captain Jack. (Purely money issues). Would love them one day. Keep getting regular updates on my Big Chief 3rd and 13th Doctors, apparently production is finally finished and are shipping from China end of this month. (I’ll post photos on their shelf’s when they finally arrive.) I’ve also Tom and Colin and K9 on pre-order, but their way off yet.

      I hope the 3 figurines Harrops are making from the same episode does include another Doctor.
      It’s time they made a concerted effort to make at least all of the Classic Doctors if not all of the Doctors soon.

    The Yeti has a fixed release date of 30th April and the edition size is 225.
    Could be a wise choice considering how quick the Axon creature sold out.

    Seems like we’re getting another Doctor, to be announced shortly.
    It’s been along time since their last Doctor.

      Yes, Harrop’s have said there will be an announcement about a new Doctor figurine shortly- I think it’s William Hartnell!

      I mentioned on Facebook that it should be the 13th since she’s the current Doctor.
      Bit odd if not.

    • the ergon

      April 7th, 2021 - 12:33pm

      That would allow me a break to save for the monsters. Seems odd they haven,t done one in a while though for those that want the Doctors.

    • Who Knows

      April 7th, 2021 - 1:35pm

      It will likely be the 1st Doctor . . .

      @annonymous…… Yeah, its only a bit odd if they did make the “Cosplay Doctor”. They want to make money so it definitely won’t be her it’ll be a classic doctor!

      Harrops have found their market, i doubt we will see anything “new series” from them for some time, if ever.
