[singlepic=33793,320,240,,left]Big Chief Studios is entering one of the most competitive segments of the collectibles market, the 1/6th scale figure market. No, Lucas hasn’t found a way to split their license yet again… Big Chief is coming in with 1/6th scale figures for Doctor Who and the lead off figure is the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith. The figure comes out this December and will cost around $231 USD. Take a look at the full press release and gallery below for all the juicy details. Part of me feels a little greedy after looking at this figure. He looks great, he comes with tons of accessories, but I can’t help but feel he’s missing one crucial piece of apparel – A Fez!
Here’s the official release:
Sporting a tweed jacket and cool bow tie, the Eleventh Doctor and his companions Amy Pond and her husband Rory Pond, travel through time and space aboard the TARDIS. Sometimes dangerous, often life-threatening, but always exciting, the adventures of the Doctor and his companions are celebrated with the release of the Limited Edition 1:6 Scale Collector Series Figures from BIG Chief Studios Ltd.
Our artists meticulously studied comprehensive reference materials to develop the most accurately scaled collector’s figure. First creating a realistic and authentic character portrait of the Eleventh Doctor as portrayed by actor Matt Smith and replicating the Time Lord’s trademark costume and signature accessories in exacting detail.
Officially licensed and authorised by BBC Worldwide, includes authentic character portrait, beautifully hand-tailored costume, signature accessories and a deluxe display base.
