Character Options Doctor Who Exclusive Collectors Set of the 4th Doctor and the Robot



Character Options have unveiled another new Doctor Who exclusive collectors set heading to B&M stores in the UK in early 2022. Joining the current batch of releases is a set featuring the 4th Doctor and the Robot from Tom Baker's debut story, Robot (1974).


The pack re-releases the original Classic Dr. Who line build-a-figure, the Robot, and the original 4th Doctor from 2008. The Doctor features a solemn head with hat combination, a head not seen on this body before - although it has been used on other 4th Doctor outfits like the one from Genesis of the Daleks.



The price on the set is TBC, but expected to be £19.99 like the other Doctor Who sets. It is due to land in mid-January 2022.


A single remarkable new set will mark a year in which nine new lines have been delivered to B&M. Titled ROBOT, fans can look forward to a classic era figure set based on the debut 1974 episode featuring the ‘new’ Fourth Doctor, played by Tom Baker. The set comprises two figures: The Fourth Doctor in his original shabby red jacket, long stripy scarf and fedora and the K1 Robot. Created in 5.5” collector scale, each has multiple points of articulation and comes packaged in the familiar ‘heritage’ style Doctor Who collector packs with specially created insert artwork.

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force), and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licenses - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who, and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK-focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
