You will find Toby in his possessed state in the show 'Doctor Who'. He was an unfortunate victim onboard a spaceship, falling foul of some body altering effect. The character was quite a strong one in the episode though and was deemed significant enough to be turned into an action figure. You can actually buy a Toby in his normal state and also this one, the Possessed version.
The figure can be bought loose for about three pounds or boxed for around eight pounds. What you get is a poseable action figure made from plastic. He can be moved at the head, the arms and legs move too, so you get plenty of dynamic movement out of the toy.
The facial design is pretty accurate with a good hair match and the possessed effects coming across strongly in the eyes and skin. The detailing has been mapped onto his face well and if you study up close then you will see the difference between the normal Toby and this one. Moving onto his outfit, not the wildest costume we have seen on a figure, but the colour scheme echoes what he wore in the show and there is some good pleating on the shirt and round the knee area which brings the figure to life.
There is not much more to comment on here, a lack of extras let the product down, so you essentially get the basic five inch figure. In terms of desirability, younger kids might find the face fun and quirky, though I am not sure he represents long term play value as a character, in the way that a Dalek or The Master might. For that reason, I would not deem him an essential purchase, but a pleasing enough addition to the line up.
