Master Replicas has announced it has acquired the rights to continue the “Doctor Who” figurine collection, one of the longest running “Doctor Who” collections ever released.
To date, the collection has featured statues from every era of “Doctor Who,” allowing fans to bring 370 unique characters into their homes, but it was left unfinished when the previous rights holder, Eaglemoss, went into administration in 2022. Master Replicas’ new production will fit with the original statues and will include new releases of characters, including Daleks and Cybermen.
As before, the statues will be researched by combing through the BBC archives and studying the episodes. They are then digitally sculpted before being cast in polyresin and painted by hand. The collection also includes a line of “Mega” statues that stand 8-12 inches tall and a series of TARDIS consoles.
“This is a very exciting time for ‘Doctor Who’ and we’re very happy that we’re able to bring this collection back,” says Darren Epstein, new products manager, Heathside. “The range of statues is incredible. We couldn’t be happier to continue the work and will be bringing the same level of research and attention to detail to the series. We’re particularly excited to bring the vehicles to life starting with the Dalek Saucer from ‘The Parting of the Ways.’”
Work is underway and the collection will return in 2024. More information will be made available at MasterReplicas.com.
