To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the world’s longest running sci-fi series Doctor Who in 2013, Toys ”R” Us will launch a special 5-inch action figure collection that includes all eleven reincarnations of the Doctor alongside his most infamous foe – the Daleks.
Commencing from May 2013, 11 limited edition commemorative twin packs will be launched, each featuring a different Doctor together with the Dalek design that he faced in his adventures.
The first three packs will be available to pre-order from 1st May and comprise of;
The Second Doctor played by Patrick Troughton and the Silver and Blue Dalek he faced in The Evil of the Daleks.
The Sixth Doctor played by Colin Baker and the White and Gold Dalek he encountered in Revelation of the Daleks.
The Tenth doctor played by David Tennant and the formidable Bronze Dalek that attempted to exterminate the universe in The Stolen Earth.
The 5-inch figure sets are incredibly detailed and expected to be hotly sought after by fans. Each set is only available for a limited time, and will be replaced by another three sets from this unique series in the summer, details of which will be announced soon.
Mike Coogan, Marketing Director at Toys “R” Us commented:
“We are delighted and excited to be able to offer our customers this commemorative Doctor Who action figure collection. There are so many fans of the Doctor and collectors from the past 50 years who will be eager to own mementos of the anniversary year and these prestigious twin packs will have special meaning to them, whatever their age.”
The first three exclusive Doctor Who Doctor and Daleks sets at Toys “R” Us will be priced at £19.99 and fans will be able to pre-order online from 1st May 2013. Updates on expected delivery of sets will be notified via the Toys ”R” Us UK Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/toysrusuk.
