Mickey Smith has popped up numerous times in the newer episodes of Doctor Who. He made his debut when Eccleston took over the role. Noel Clarke plays the rather buff love interest of Rose (Billie Piper.) He proved himself to be a hero in some of the later episodes, despite being a bit bumbling when he was first introduced.
The decision to turn him into an action figure was a wise one, as the character has plenty of play value and there are loads of scenarios you ccan create with him.
Character Options have produced a decent model of him, he is visually striking and looks a bit more athletic than the Mickey in the series. The head is quite well designed, though the facial likeness could have been sharper, I think he looks more like Lewis Hamilton than Mickey! Wearing a smart grey top he looks the part though. There is great texturing on his trousers which suggests movement and adds realism.
The figure is poseable and can be moved at the arms, head and on the legs too, which means you can put him into a range of positions. Mickey comes with a decent gun of sorts which can be gripped between his hands; he needs arms both to fully support it. The figure stands at about five inches tall, putting him in line with most of the other toys in the range. Collectors will be pleased that he comes in bubble plastic meaning he is displayed in a very appealing fashion.
If you want to buy him, you can pick him up from Amazon for about eight pounds, making him a little dearer than some of the other figures. Mickey should be a must for hardcore collectors though, given that he is a key character and also a firm fan favourite.
