Junk Tardis Console Playset

Junk Tardis Console Playset

Highly detailed 5-inch scale Junk TARDIS based on the design by Susannah Leah, winner of the Blue Peter ‘Design a TARDIS Console’ competition. Features include flight restraint safety straps; removable console panel and time rotator.

Use the spinner on the base to fly the TARDIS, get strapped in first though – it could be a rough ride! Action figure not included. Assembly required. 5+

Retail price seems to be around £20.00

This set is available to order online from Forbidden Planet or Forbidden Planet International

Our own images…

The junk Tardis with panel removed, click the image for a really large version…

The console from a low angle, the time rotor is completely removable…

The spinner – put your thumb on the rotating device (A) and use the handle (B) and spin the Tardis – Hold tight!

The back of the packaging…

Two sets of groves for the feet (The Doctor and Idris, yes where is Idris?) are provided along with flight restraint straps to hold the figures in place when you spin the Tardis…

    Do the 3.75 inch scale figures look totally out of place with this playset?

    Why does this not have the coat hanger hanging on the time rotor?

    • silence is cool

      January 29th, 2012 - 8:23pm

      proparly it would snap off or somthink and it would wobble it would be very annoying

      My Smyths have had pretty much the EXACT same batch of stuff since January, the Pandorica figures, full price, and afew Series 5 which are reduced but nothing intresting, just Peter the Winders and the Regenerating Angel. :/

    Got this from Toys R Us last week for £19.99 , amazing playset.I think that it would be cool to have an Argos exclusive oof this with Idris 💡

    • The Last Centurion

      July 25th, 2011 - 10:42am

    Why are the safety belts black, they should be red

    • TARDIS

      November 29th, 2011 - 7:52pm

      it tells you why on the box its made by character

  • Mels

    July 8th, 2011 - 1:07pm

    This is a great playset… can’t wait to put Idris onboard lol.

    The only problem I had with this was assembling those card pieces… every time I’d get one under one tab… another bit would pop out etc (I got quite frustrated lol). I ended up creasing that back piece slightly getting it in. 😕

    Anyway, the thing I like the most about this set, is you can actually properly play with it (unlike the 11th Doctor’s PLAY*cough*set).

    You can get some serious speed with the spinner. 😛

      July 22nd, 2011 - 5:06pm

      yeah this set is awesome!just got it recently and had the same problems with the card. don’t you think it’s very odd to put one piece of card on the back as well? plus, its really hard to fit on.

    • Mels

      July 28th, 2011 - 2:21pm

      I like the colour on the back, since you see the back when you ‘spin’ it. Those pieces of card though are awful to assemble (they are far too tight).

      I’d much rather if the backgrounds were good quality decals – that way you can get them on easily, and don’t have to worry about tabs.
