The Time Warrior Sontaran Figure Set

The Time Warrior Sontaran Figure Set

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

Journalist Sarah Jane Smith covertly gains access to a research centre where top scientists are being held in protective custody whilst UNIT investigates the disappearance of a number of their colleagues. The missing scientists have been kidnapped by a Sontaran, Linx, and taken back to medieval England, where they are working under hypnosis to repair his crashed spaceship.

The Third Doctor follows in the TARDIS, and Sarah Jane stows away. In return for shelter, Linx has provided a robber baron called Irongron with anachronistically advanced weapons to use in attacks on neighbouring castles.

The Doctor helps Sir Edward of Wessex to repel one such attack, then he and Sarah Jane conspire to drug the food in Irongron’s kitchens so that the weapons can be removed while the men are unconscious. Aided by one of the kidnapped scientists, Rubeish, he then sends the others back to the 20th Century using Linx’s primitive time travel equipment.

Linx shoots Irongron down and gets ready to leave in his repaired ship. Hal, one of Sir Edward’s archers, fires an arrow into the vulnerable probic vent at the back of his neck, killing him. The Doctor, Sarah Jane and Hal escape just before the ship explodes, destroying the castle.

In this exclusive set we present the Classic Sontaran: Commander Linx and his iconic Sontaran space ship along with the Third Doctor in Green Jacket and Sonic Screwdriver.

Contents :
1 x Third Doctor in Green Jacket action figure
1 x Sontaran Commander Linx action figure with helmet and gun
1 x Sontaran Ship

    I bought this yesterday from a Sci-Fi shop in Liverpool, not Forbidden Planet, & every figure in the set is brilliant. Not to mention the Sontaron Pod is great. probably its the best buy for me in 2011

      July 7th, 2011 - 2:59pm

      Me too, I prefer it. But since Im getting the Genesis set, Im gna buy my Doctor AND Sontaran Linx offa ebay. 😉 Not paying an extra £9 for a plastic sphere that cant EVEN be used by the Sontaran. 😡

      July 7th, 2011 - 3:04pm

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      July 7th, 2011 - 8:01pm

    June 7th, 2011 - 4:34pm

    I hope they bring a Lynx out on it’s own because i already have a 3rd doctor (from the 11 doctors set) and a sontaran ship!!!

      The Doctor and the Sontaran ship are both quite different in this set, and the Cloak from the 11 Doctor’s set can be used authenticly on this figure of the Third Doctor, since he wore it in the story.

      If you DO insist on buying the Sontaran Linx seperately, then I would advise EBAY. 😉

    • WhoEleven

      June 12th, 2011 - 7:51pm

      Yer. The is a Linx and Space Pod on ebay by themselves

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      July 7th, 2011 - 3:00pm

      Im gna get the Sontaran Comander, and this excellent figure of Third Doctor on ebay. Already orderd the Third Doctor. 😀
