the new series began in 2005 the licenses for creating new merchandise included
Character Options who were to create a line of high-quality toys based around
the 21st century characters. This page details the figures that were released
starting in February 2006 and it should be noted that no 6" figures were
created during the actual year of the revival. Further Series One characters and
monsters such as Autons will be created retrospectively in 2007.
Doctor (David Tennant)
This version of the tenth Doctor is
wearing his long overcoat and holding the Sonic screwdriver.
This is a
great articulated figure from Character Options although a coat made from fabric
rather than moulded plastic might have been nicer.
This version of the
Character Options tenth Doctor figure has him wearing his dapper pinstripe suit.
As with all Character Options toys the likeness to the actor David Tennant is
pretty good and this is a quality posable figure.
on its own, this ninth Doctor was bundled inside the Dalek Battlepack and also
in the Regeneration Set of two Doctors featured left. Sadly he is somewhat pre-posed
and this must surely limit a little the games a child can play. He's never not
ready for action! The regeneration set also includes a version of David Tennant
wearing the ninth Doctor's leather jacket costume as occurs at the start of 'The
and Rusty K9
This original figure of Rose is in a fighting
pose and has the red hoody costume from her in eponymous debut story "Rose".
She comes bundled with a rusty K9 figure that features a removable access panel.
This pairing does seem slightly odd but nevetherless is a good product.
This first wave version of Lady Cassandra from 'The
End of the World' comes with three robotic spiders which acted as her servants
during the episode. As with many of the original batch of figures this has become
quite collectable now.
Moxx of Balhoon
Also taken from 'The End of the World' episode,
which was the second of season one, this popular character is very collectable
now. The little blue chap is accompanied by two robotic spiders which did the
evil bidding of Lady Cassandra and ultimately led to the demise of the poor Moxx.
In what seems to be a deliberate mistake, this Slitheen
toy is much more frightening looking than its TV appearance in "Aliens of
London" ever was and actually makes it look like quite a respectable baddie.
If you'd seen the Character Options figure before the episode you'd be sorely
let down by their cuddly baby-faced portray. This is an excellent posable figure.
This beautifully made figure comes with club
and whip. It is now extremely collectable as with much of the first wave line
and regularly fetches £25-£30. Sadly when I lasy checked Amazon were
unable to stock it at all but use the link on the left to check.
Cassandra and Chip
This second-wave version of Cassandra from
May 2006 was a dual pack and included differences such as Cassandra's frame being
rustier than in the original batch, as well as the extra figure of her servant,
called Chip. He is a fully articulated figure and there is lovely detail in her
The first version of the Cyberman from character options had an
open palm and no gun present on the forearm. It is a beautifully crafted figure
is a very nice addition to any collection.
This figure has a visible brain inside the head
plus the extra detail of chest bolts. He appeared in the second part of the two-part
Cyberman story from season two: 'The Age of Steel'. Also available was a thron
set featuing two guards. For the normal version click the link on the left, for
the throne, click below.
This figure of Captain Jack hails from his 'The
Empty Child' / 'The Doctor Dances' war era and wears a suitable flight Jacket.
Obviously a partial (and ever inappropriate) tie-in also to the show Torchwood,
named after the organisation he winds up working for. This toy comes complete
with blaster gun.
This third wave variant of the Cyberman has a clenched
fist and gun on forearm. This is the more readily available now for obvious reasons.
The detail on the toy is superb and when compared to some of the comparable figures
from fifteen years ago, kids today really are spoilt!
This superb articulated figure figure from Character Options has
sculpted hair and a very menacing looking form. In common with the Krillitanes,
there was never an actual costume for this beast as it was realised solely with
From episide 2 of season 2 this alien infected humans with its wolf-like
appearance and planned to take over the monarch to rule the world.
The brilliant Character Options Krillitane comes
with detachable and posable wings, and full articulated figure. The head of the
creature is not wholly remniscent of the TV monster but still a very nice toy.
episode 3 of season 2, the Killitanes adapted their shape over generations, and
stole features such as wings.
This is the grey version of the Krillitane menace,
corresponding to the ethnically different human form of Mr Wagner, although the
Mr Wager Krillitane creature was more black than grey it is neverthless a nice
addition to the range and one for the completists.
Earth' Rose & New K9
Character Options released a new Rose
figure wearing an outfit
from Season Two Episode One: 'New Earth'. She comes with a non-rusty K9 that also
features a removable access panel showing his innards.
As with the first
wave version, an odd pairing as this costume and this dog had nothing to do with
each other but still a nice dual pack.
