Time Lord, friends and foes star in new statue series...
WETA Limited has confirmed they will be creating, in collaboration with BBC Worldwide, a line of collectible statues based on the long-running sci-fi television series, Doctor Who (see "WETA to Make Doctor Who Collectibles?").
The Weta Collectibles line will incorporate key moments from Doctor Who. The initial series will consist of four pieces, all of which capture a nostalgic scene from the series. Each piece will be made at 1:6th scale and made out of high quality polystone. Weta Sculptors Ben Hawker, Dan Cockersell, Eden Small and Gary Hunt created the pieces in collaboration with Weta Model Maker David Tremont.
Selected pieces will be on display for the first time at the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con from 25–29 July, meaning that Comic Con attendees will be the first to view the range. The Weta Limited stand is number 2615.
Weta Limited Manager Jamie Wilson said the opportunity to work on Doctor Who merchandise is exciting for all involved. “Doctor Who is such an iconic series, with a huge following all over the world. We have chosen memorable moments from the series that capture the power, emotion and transformed them into dynamic collectible pieces. We hope the fans will enjoy these collectibles as much as we have had making them.”
Pricing, purchasing dates and edition size announcements will be made at a later date.
