The second wave of Doctor Who action figures threw up some interesting characters. You can buy them in the presentation set as pictured, which will cost about fifty odd pounds or you buy the figures on their own. Here are my top picks from the series two wave.
The Doctor is in Tennant form so we have him in his delightful trench coat with the facial match spot on too. The figure looks stunning thanks to a slick hairdo and the long coat really brings him to life. Tennant is flanked by a lovely Rose Tyler toy, clad in a tight purple top and slacks. Billie's face is amazing on the figure and the sweeping hair looks just right oo with the blonde colour bang on.
We have a Dalek available too, glistening black bodywork and with wheels that move. You can pose his weapons too and swivel the head, which enhances his play value. The robust Dalek is a real eyecatcher and the pepperpot shape is crafted very well.
In terms of other villians, I must single out the Clockwork Man, who looks part Johnny Depp and part Captain Hook. A clown-like face a funny old fashiones costume make him one of the best figures in the series. He has a hooked weapon for a hand and you can even take his mask off to expose a droid underneath.
My final pick in the series is the subdued Ood. The Ood is clad in grey robes and though the costume is dull, the face is interesting. He has a squid like look, with tentacles protruding. You can attach his breathing device into his hand and then into his mouth.
All the toys come in at about five inches and can be posed fully at limbs. Well made, priced at about six pounds a piece, they are a great talking point for Who enthusiasts.
