BIG Chief Studios announces that they have acquired the Doctor Who license through BBC Worldwide. The collectibles company will be producing a range of 1:6 scale action figures in addition to 1:4 scale mixed media statues. The agreement includes rights for both classic Doctor Who episodes as well as the current series.
Initial product offerings will include detailed 1:6 scale versions of the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companion Amy Pond (Karen Gillan). Both figures will be fully articulated and will feature hand-painted character portraits, finely tailored costuming, signature accessories and themed display bases. To complete the first wave, other popular characters including Rory Williams and River Song will be released.
Key monsters and aliens from the hit TV series will also be released. Additionally themed 1:6 scale dioramas depicting the sets from the show will be introduced for collectors to create displays for their figures.
The "Definitive Edition" 1:4 scale mixed media statues will utilize a blend of non-articulated, pre-posed figurines with authentic character portraits, fabric costuming and themed display bases. Select statues will also include light-up display features.
BIG Chief will begin offering the first two character releases in Q4 2011, both direct to consumer via their dedicated website (bigchiefstudios.co.uk) and through select hobby and specialist retailers. Stay tuned for future updates.
