The Eaglemoss releases for this month and last month are primarily about Peter Capaldi’s inaugural series as the 12th Doctor, with three figurines to add to the range. There appear to be a few more due for release in the upcoming issues, so Series 8 will be making a big stamp on the figurine collection now.
The Twelfth Doctor from Flatline shows the standard costume chosen for most of the publicity stills prior to the last series. The sculpt is pretty good and isn’t too lost under the paint job. The hair could use a greyer wash as the white is a bit too glaring, but it’s a very tidy sculpt and it’s good to see the current Doctor join the range.
The Half-Face Man from Peter Capaldi’s feature-length debut – and sequel to The Girl In The Fireplace – Deep Breath is represented here in some rather impressive detail, especially over the waistcoat. He’s seen here ready to threaten Clara with his detached arm disturbingly worn like a brooch and flame arm upraised.
From the Peter Davison classic story The Visitation, which is a story I have great fondness for, comes another great entry in the form of the Terileptil Leader. The details are superb as are the colours, replicating the variations throughout the costume. The Terileptil Leader is holding a set of handcuffs, which is perhaps to give the figure some dynamism, which does work to break up the expanse of green.
Rusty, or the Good Dalek, from Inside The Dalek, is shown in all its battered, cabled glory. I really like the work that’s gone into this figurine, which was sculpted by the Mind Robber, whose expert 3D modelling skills have brought many daleks and cybermen to the line.
As ever, I have some images of upcoming releases, which includes the Third Doctor, the decayed Master from The Deadly Assassin, a handbot from The Girl Who Waited, Moonbase Cyberman, , the Teller from Time Heist, Cassandra from New Earth, robots from Robots Of Sherwood and Davros as the Dalek Emperor from Remembrance Of The Daleks. These images have come from, as before @LondonConcrete and the man in charge of the Eaglemoss Doctor Who Figurine Collection, as well as the Star Trek, DC, Marvel and James Bond lines, @bencsrobinson. These are still works in progress and subject to change.
