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…

    looks like it does not come ready made so you could do a recreation seen of the doctor and idris building the tardis that is if an ideis figure is released

      There is a “space” in the floor for an Idris figure to stand.

      Also, the description says that both the rotor and panel can be removed. The console and the walls can probablly be removed as well.

      that might be for any figure to stand but id wait to see if toys r us or argos might release an exclusive idris figure with it

    There are two feet shaped holes on the base of the console, going by the shape it would need to be a high heel and Idris stood at that position in the episode. Hope this means we will get a figure.

      there are another 2 feet holes in the ground on the other side which you can’t see so that makes room for the doctor and Idris (I HOPE) i think its for the hole ballance for when you spin it…. round

    Fantastic, now they will hopefully make a classic TARDIS playset!!!

    Bit dissapointed that it hasn’t got any lights or sounds on the console, but I suppose it can’t be helped.

    also tell me if I’m wrong but is that a new variation of the eleventh doctor?

      If you don’t have the money, just don’t buy it. No-one’s forcing you to. Just buy the figures you like.

      But it drives people to longing and unhappiness if you want something you can’t have.

      May 23rd, 2011 - 7:56pm

      There are many things people want that they cant have, me included but you cant expect Co not to bring out things just because some people wont be able to afford it, they cant run a business that way

      I aren’t one of these people. I can afford some of these. But, it is the sadness of wanting and having to make decisions between products that make that make us glum and unhappy. I understand your point, but in this economy, no matter how many new dr who items are released, nobody is in a position to buy them all. CO are desperate and want people to try and collect everything.

    £23!! Thats alot with no figures. Weird that they are using a promo shot of what is clearly a new variant of the Doctor. I would have bought this if it came with a figure (or two)

      I think this confirms that they will just HAVE to bring out an Idris figure now. Having said which, Character seem to enjoy doing the unexcpected…Where’s a Rory and River Song figure yet?! We’ve had some very exciting ‘unusual’ toys like the ‘stone’ Pandorica figures, Dr with fez etc. Wish they stil brought out figures of the ‘Tennant’ era in their classics range. Still waiting for a Tritovore, Ms Hartigan and John Lumic (before conversion)

      Even i would have to admit it would be slightly baffling if we dont get an idris figure
