I have long been a fan of the show Doctor Who and have been enjoying the new series with Doctor Matt Smith. There is something just as rewarding about watching the older episodes though. If you travel back to the seventies, then you will be able to watch Tom Baker as Doctor Who, with his broad grin and floppy scarf. From Tom's era comes this monster, the Mummy Robot. The character featured in the 'Pyamids Of Mars' episode.
Charcter Options have produced a five inch figure, which you can buy on its own or as part of a set with the fourth Doctor included too. The individual toy is an unusual looking toy, as it looks like a big mass of silver. If you study him up close then you will be able to see the detail is quite 'mummy like 'with etching all over the face and torso. The head is pretty much blank in terms of an expression and this gives the toy an incredibly cold and creepy look which I love.
The way his body hangs in the humdrum fashion echoes the look of the character from the show and the posture is a highlight of the toy. You can move the toy at the head, arms and legs and have him seated if you wish. Further value has been added with a couple of accessories, including a small cannister.
This is not the most visually interesting Doctor Who toy and the colours cause him to fade away into the backround. The accuracy of the design work is strong, but he just is not going to make younger children want to rush and buy him. On the other hand, older collectors will see the appeal in owning a rarer figure from the older Doctor Who era. This is the appeal for me, as he represents something of a flashback in time.
The toy can be bought full price for around eight pounds boxed but you can pick up loose ones for around half the price.
