Robert Harrop Doctor Who 2012 Snowman

Available to order from

“I think winter is coming… Such a winter as this world has never known!”

In 1842 England, a young boy builds a snowman, but refuses to play with the other children. The snowman starts speaking to the boy, repeating his assertions that the other children are silly.

Fifty years later, the boy has grown up to be Doctor Walter Simeon, proprietor of the Great Intelligence Institute. He hires men to collect samples of snow, which he places in a large snow-filled globe in his laboratory before feeding the men to a group of animated snowmen.


The Doctor, still despondent after losing his former companions Amy Pond and Rory Williams, has parked his TARDIS above Victorian London among the clouds. Elsewhere, barmaid Clara Oswin Oswald investigates a disturbance outside the tavern and finds the Doctor walking by.

He attempts to leave discreetly, but Clara follows him to a coach. Not wishing to become involved in matters, the Doctor instructs Strax to bring him a memory worm that will erase the last hour of Clara’s memories with just a touch. Before they can do so, they are surrounded and attacked by snowmen…

      Depends how much you are willing to pay. But they can vary in price usually around £100+, on a buy it now price, on ebay. Anything exclusive that goes up on ‘friends of Harrop’ occasionally starts at around £70+ with a discount but once on the secondary market can double in price when sold out in shop. And most sell out very quickly. Some rarer figurines can sell for a few hundred plus.

    As much as I like monsters from the classic series its nice to have more new series monsters to balance the collection. This figurine looks awesome especially that creepy face and its nice that it is a little cheaper

    Will we ever see a 5″ figure of this character ?????

      Its possible but I doubt it. I’ve decided to pre-ordered this item to go with my 5″ figures as it is roughly in scale.

    There’s not much that can go wrong on a static snowman figure though I guess! And I would expect it to at that price. Preordered.

      this is 156mm high (assuming that includes the base) and the 5″ 11th doctor is 150mm high including the hat so you might be looking at something like this
