Series: Doctor Who Classics, 2nd series
Release Date: 2/2010
Comments: As I make my way through wave 2 of the Doctor Who classics figures, today we’re looking at a figure that’s previously been available – the robot Mummy from ‘Pyramids of Mars’. Originally available in a 4th Doctor boxset, he is now available carded; the canopic jar is unique for this release.
The robot Mummy is a great example how sometimes, less is more. Despite having rather substandard articulation; this figure is just about perfect. On-screen the Mummy robots didn’t move a whole lot, so really this figure is quite screen accurate. ‘Pyramids of Mars’ is such a top-notch episode that the ‘monster’ selection accommodates some for the simplicity of the design.
