The Three Doctors Figure Set - Forbidden Planet Exclusive

Character Options and Underground Toys have revealed yet another classic Doctor Who figure set - exclusive to Forbidden Planet:

THE THREE DOCTORS FIGURE SET
A gel-like plasma creature arrives on Earth and hunts down the third Doctor, who calls on the Time Lords for help. The Time Lords themselves are in crisis as their energy is being drawn off into a black hole. They send the Doctor’s earlier selves to join him.

The first Doctor, caught in a time eddy and able only to advise, deduces that the creature is a time bridge. The third Doctor and Jo then give themselves up to it and are transported to a world of antimatter beyond the black hole.

On Earth, the second Doctor is forced to take refuge in the Tardis along with the Brigadier and Sergeant Benton. On the advice of the first Doctor he switches off the ship’s force field, and the whole UNIT building is transported through the black hole.

Behind these events is Omega, a figure from Time Lord history whose solar engineering provided the power for time travel. He has been trapped in the black hole ever since and now wants the Doctor to swap places with him, but it transpires that the corrosive properties of his domain have already destroyed his physical form, leaving only his will.

Contents:
The Brigadier (in Peaked Cap with Pistol)
Jo Grant (with Removable Gilet)
Gel Guard

The figure set is on sale exclusively at Forbidden Planet stores from 3rd January 2013 priced £26.99 per purchase.

Pyramid of Mars Figure Set - FB Exclusive

Character Options have revealed yet another classic Doctor Who figure set exclusive to Forbidden Planet:

"Your evil is my good. I am Sutekh the Destroyer. Where I tread, I leave nothing but dust and darkness I find that good!”

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 held prisoner under a pyramid in Egypt by a signal transmitted from one on Mars. Sutekh desires his freedom and instructs Scarman to construct servicer robots - which look like Egyptian mummies - to build a missile with which to destroy the Martian pyramid. The Doctor foils this plan by blowing up the missile.

He then falls under Sutekh’s control himself and is made to transport Scarman to Mars in the Tardis. Scarman cuts off the signal but the Doctor, now freed of Sutekh’s influence, realises that there will be a short delay before it stops, rushes back and uses the time control from the Tardis to move the end of Sutekh’s space-time tunnel into the far future. Sutekh, travelling down the tunnel, is unable to reach the end in his lifetime, and dies.

Contents:
1x Sutekh with jackal head action figure
2x Mars Guardian Robot Mummy action figures

The figure set is on sale exclusively at Forbidden Planet stores from 18th September priced £19.99 per purchase.
