Toys “R” Us exclusive figure series

Character Options has announced a collector’s series of figures exclusive to Toys “R” Us stores in the UK. The new collection of eleven figures will be displayed in brand new resealable packaging, allowing the figures to be taken out of pack and then stored in pristine condition.

The new 5-inch figure series will include:

  • Clara Oswald (played by Jenna Coleman)
  • Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) with K9
  • Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) in her famed police outfit
  • Three separate figures of the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith): one in purple jacket, another donning a cowboy hat, and finally with his sonic screwdriver
  • Four versions of the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) with white, black, purple or polka dot shirts 
  • A brand new figure of the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) as seen in the mini-episode The Night of the Doctor

In addition, four 3.75-inch Wave 4 figures will also be available.

“This collector’s series is really special,” says Al Dewar, Product Development Director for Character Options. “The fans have been requesting a return to the 5.5-inch format for a long time and in producing this collection I feel we have brought to them exactly what they have been demanding.”

Mike Coogan, Marketing & eCommerce Director, Toys “R” Us further commented: “Toys “R” Us has a particular affinity with the Doctor Who fan and each year we like to bring to them something that they could not get anywhere else. This new series is exceptional and I believe one of the most comprehensive collector’s series to date - it will be an instant hit with all collectors.”

The range will be generally available at Toys “R” Us stores and online by 9 November, however selected items will be available earlier through the website.
