Pyramids of Mars Priory Set

In this Fourth Doctor adventure, the TARDIS materialises on Earth in the year 1911 inside an old priory owned by Egyptologist Marcus Scarman. Scarman has been possessed by Sutekh, last survivor of the god-like Osirans, who is being held prisoner inside a pyramid in Egypt by a signal transmitted from a pyramid on Mars.

Sutekh wants to be free and instructs Scarman to use robots, which look like Egyptian mummies, to build a pyramid-shaped rocket with which to destroy the Martian pyramid. The Doctor blows up the missile but falls under Sutekh’s control and is made to transport Scarman to Mars to cut off the signal controlling the prison. The Doctor, freed of Sutekh’s influence, rushes back to Earth and uses the time control from the TARDIS to move the end of the space-time tunnel that Sutekh is travelling down into the far future where, unable to reach the end, Sutekh ages to death.

Exclusive to Forbidden Planet!


This collector’s set includes

  • Sutekh (in Helmet with light-up eyes)
  • Marcus Scarman (interchangeable head with Jackal from 1st Pyramids of Mars set)

    where can I get a the buffy library play set and how much?


      May 25th, 2013 - 4:02pm

      Currently unavailable on Amazon.

      Ebay seemed to have a used one sold a couple of years back on 12th July 2011, sold for £29.00.

      Sorry I couldn’t be on any help to you.

      Sure does look great use as a display piece for displaying action figures 🙂

      I know ! I really want it for my 8th Doctor ! 🙁

      you could make one for yourself with the action figure thearter sets

    They could round off the pyramids collections with the servant of sutekh (minus smoking feet) and a sarah jane figure to start some other sets rolling. Also a Daemons set 2 featuring azal and the reverend magister. Shouldn,t be too costly since they already have the delgado head sculpt. they would only need to make minor changes.

      May 29th, 2013 - 3:05am

      they just made a magister set with the brigadire and the gargoyle

    • T he ergon

      June 26th, 2013 - 11:51pm

      I mean the reverend magister in vicars outfit with glasses, although they could have bok crosslegged with glowing eyes and azal.

  • RastonEd

    May 23rd, 2013 - 8:41pm

    Even if I get this, ill still be missing one canonic jar cos I missed the mummy from classic wave 2, which is a bit annoying and I don’t want another mummy.

    • McGann is the Doctor

      May 28th, 2013 - 10:54am

      nothing wrong with having yet another

  • Joe

    May 23rd, 2013 - 8:30pm

    How big is the rocket in the set is it about the size of 5 inch figures or smaller?

    • Luke

      May 24th, 2013 - 4:40pm

      The rocket is in scale for the 5″ figures. Like shown in the picture the figures can go inside

  • josh smith

    May 23rd, 2013 - 4:38pm

    why is it soo expensive.

    the other 3 fugre sets are £10 cheeper and these are not even new schukps!?

    • booboo

      May 23rd, 2013 - 5:01pm

      You have 3 practically brand new items, one of them has electronics in it for the light up eyes and a large diorama, sometimes i dont know what you people expect

    • Scott

      May 23rd, 2013 - 7:35pm

      I thought this was a pretty good set, I prefer it over the last pyramids of mars set

    • josh smith

      May 26th, 2013 - 9:22pm

      if they didnt have the rocket how much do you rekon it will cost?

    • Anonymous

      June 9th, 2013 - 8:55pm

      The rocket isnt the costly thing…as booboo said there are basicly 3 new sculpted figures and they will proberly never be released again rendering costs higher than usual

    • josh smith

      June 22nd, 2013 - 8:53am

      no the sutek isnt a new sculpt

      and the scarms legs are the same as the robomans

  • McGann is the Doctor

    May 23rd, 2013 - 1:10pm

    Wow, it looks like there’s enough room for Sutekh to go inside that rocket

  • Chooky

    May 22nd, 2013 - 4:02am

    Will defiantly be getting this set. Of course i buy the Mars Set the day before this one was announced. Huh. Either way this still is awesome.

  • Andrew

    May 21st, 2013 - 9:48pm

    booboo, or anyone, do you know if the rocket is takeapartable? What I mean is, can you collapse it after you have put it together, or is that it?

    • booboo

      May 21st, 2013 - 9:48pm

      no idea sorry

    • Andrew

      May 21st, 2013 - 9:50pm

      It appears to tab together, so I assume you can pop them out unless they either the irriversable ones / have to be cellotaped to secure.

  • Joe

    May 21st, 2013 - 9:13pm

    Do you think we will we any more figures from this story?

    Future ideas

    1 Daleks master plan set with supreme dalek, mavic chan and Sara kingdom
    2 Enemies of the second dr set with ice lord, Yeti and Wheel in space Cyberman
    3 Five drs set with Dalek, Master, cyber leader, Raston robot and hurnell first doctor

    Due date in the US for 28/8/13 – Hope we get this around the same time as it’s an absolutely cracking set!

  • run you clever boy

    May 21st, 2013 - 4:41pm

    tthe doctor and the 1st mummy lookgreat

  • Andrew

    May 21st, 2013 - 4:38pm

    Looks great, glad I skipped the first one, I prefer him with his mask on, and that sarcophagus looks awesome with the lenticular picture, needless to say what figures going in front of that with a hands to head in pain expression lol.

  • Dalek The Supreme

    May 21st, 2013 - 4:32pm

    Looks amazing! Definately want this one!

  • josh smith

    May 21st, 2013 - 4:19pm

    cant afford this 🙁

  • Joethewhovian

    May 21st, 2013 - 3:58pm

    What price?

    • booboo

      May 21st, 2013 - 3:59pm

      USA price suggests £39.99

    • Dalek The Supreme

      May 21st, 2013 - 4:32pm

      What’s the price in USA?

    • Joethewhovian

      May 21st, 2013 - 8:25pm

      Thats a great price! If time warrior and sontaran experiment sets are £35 ( 2 figures and deluxe vehicle) then scarman and sutekh( light up eyes remember) and rocket is £35, and then you get 2 force field generator thingymabobs, 2 different canopic jars, coordinate selector and sarcophagus (damn you ancient egyptians with your mad words that are really hard to spell! ) with vortex insert for a fiver!


    May 21st, 2013 - 3:53pm

    Oh I am so getting this now. This set looks fantastic, and I’m very glad that there is no 4th Doctor included.

    I think one of the things many fan’s have been fed up with is sets always including a Doctor figure. I know that there are variations when it comes to classic and new series Doctor figures, but surely having all the Doctor’s from the old 11 Doctors gift set is enough and just get the enemies themselves as separate releases such as this awesome set.

    • Dalek The Supreme

      May 21st, 2013 - 10:04pm

      I only get more than one of the same Doctor if the set has something desirable enough to make me want it.

    • josh smith

      June 9th, 2013 - 6:21pm

      but i really want a cream jacket mcoy figure and a city of death tom baker figure and a purple coat pertwee figure and a davison figure with a hat.

  • Fezmeister

    May 18th, 2013 - 10:48am

    I’ll be buying this for sure. I recently ordered the previous Pyramids of Mars figures, so I’m glad I was able to hunt them all down in preparation for this.

  • JaffaCakes

    May 13th, 2013 - 5:31pm

    Ooh, this looks good, doesn’t it – I always thought it was a bit of an odd choice to release the Osirian form Sutekh rather than the altogether more popular one – but now we’ve got him with light-up eyes too! Cheers for that, all involved!

  • Scott the Raptor

    May 12th, 2013 - 11:39am

    The sarcophagus can open? Lord am I excited now!!!

  • Ryan

    May 12th, 2013 - 11:08am

      enmeys of the 2nd dr set with Cyberman(Wheel in Space), kroton and quark


    May 7th, 2013 - 10:13am

    This is the one i,ve been waiting for. Just what the doctor ordered, or should i say what i,ll be ordering. The sutekh with the glowing eyes alone is worth it. Never thought they,d do a marcus scarman. Totally unexpected. Keep up the good work.

  • Joe

    May 6th, 2013 - 5:10pm

    • McGann is the Doctor

      May 14th, 2013 - 3:54pm

      You can’t have a character set AND an enemy set, because they are ALL characters.

      Better to have the enemies and the other characters together.

      Sixth Doctor with blue bow Peri or Glitz and MASSIVE robot

      Sixth Doctor and Valeyard and Lord Kiv from Mysterious planet

      Sixth Doctor sans coat and with blaster, and two Vervoids.

    I relly think this set looks great and i think its interesting how they are releasing Marcas Scarman as a figure. I think I might just get this one because Sutek has actualy got his mask on and it looks BAD-ASS!

  • The Driver

    May 5th, 2013 - 10:10am

    Is this set exclusive to somewhere?

    • booboo

      May 5th, 2013 - 10:11am

      probably FP, unless something has changed

    • Tardis’nt

      May 5th, 2013 - 10:29am

      A little model shop near me seems to be getting loads of FP exclusives in, but I don’t know how

    • booboo

      May 5th, 2013 - 10:31am

      some of the sets have been sold out to other retailers, Scificollector and the BBC shop has them amongst others

    How will they fit the rocket thing in that small box???

    • The Driver

      May 5th, 2013 - 10:09am

      It’s cardboard, so you probably have to make it.

    • itdalek

      May 10th, 2013 - 5:48pm

      O the fun of making cardboard sets (or any sets done by CO) with hours of swearing and thinking why could it not be ready built!

  • Andrew

    May 4th, 2013 - 4:23pm

    Do we have any idea of the price?

    • Andrew

      May 4th, 2013 - 4:24pm

      Is the rocket going to be something, that once you have build it thats it, or will be collapsable / break apartable? For collectors, im sure they would either want this feature, or would have to resist building it.

    • booboo

      May 4th, 2013 - 5:09pm

      none yet

  • Tardis’nt

    May 4th, 2013 - 12:14pm

    only problem with this kind of box is that you cannot check for QC

    • Nicholas

      May 7th, 2013 - 8:34pm

      They’re only doing it for this set because of the cardboard thingy

  • Carne

    May 4th, 2013 - 10:44am

    For whice figure line is this box
    The 5 inch figures?
    Or the new 3,7 figures?

    • booboo

      May 4th, 2013 - 10:45am

      no (the classics) line is 5″ and i’m sure will stay that way
