You might be wondering just who Cassandra actually is. She is the thing on the left in the photo, the bloke on the right is Chip. Cassandra is a character in the show 'Doctor Who' and she was made into an action figure shortly after appearing in the programme. Now here comes the confusing bit. There are several versions of the toy available. You can buy Cassandra on her own in a destroyed version, you can buy a Cassandra on her own before she is destroyed and you can also buy a Chip and Cassandra double pack and you can also buy Chip on his own, giving you way too many options!
The version I own is Cassandra before she is destroyed, this means you get her painted face on the piece of material that hangs in the frame. The destroyed version is basically an empty frame and does not look as good like this. The intact Cassandra is a lot rarer and will command a lot of money at online auction sites. I have seen them go for over twenty five pounds, so this is a very desirable action figure.
The Cassandra figure is made from plastic and is quite delicate at just under five inches in height. The framework supports her face and below this we have a small tub of potion which is keeping her alive. There is a high level of detail on the lower part of the toy and enough articulation on the face to please collectors too. The toy is static though so there is no movement to be had from it. The Chip toy, if you buy the double pack, does have fully poseable limbs and looks creepy and spaced out. He is five inches in height.
The Cassandra toy can be bought online, but be sure to check which one you are getting. The destroyed versions are very common and will only command a pound or so, whereas the other version is the rarest figure in the entire Doctor Who toy collection. Mine cost me ten pounds online and I was very lucky. A rare and intriguing figure for the fans.
