Series: Doctor Who Classics, 2nd series
Release Date: 2/2010
Comments: As a way of kicking off a week which will focus on the new wave of Doctor Who Classics figures, we’ll start with the Ice Warrior as featured in the 1967 2nd Doctor classic episode “The Ice Warriors” (and subtly referenced in this years “Waters of Mars”).
Well, this is going to be an easy week of articles to write, since this set of Doctor Who figures is well better than anything I could have ever imagined. Granted, I’ve been a Doctor Who fan my entire life and was thrilled with my Dapol figures – so it would be hard to make something I didn’t love. The Ice Warrior does look like it stepped right out of the TV and turned color – it is that good. The only criticism I have is that I wish the sculpt had been tweaked slightly to drop the head down a little further into the ‘collar’ – just to improve the screen accuracy slightly. But other than that nitpick – this is a golden figure.
