Character Building's Dr. Who Micro-Figures


Last week it was announced that newcomer Character Building had entered into an agreement with the BBC to product a series of 'micro-figures' based on the Doctor Who series. Now that the London Toy Fair has arrived, there are a lot more details.

First off, it appears that the figures are LEGO compatable. At a minimum this means you may have some sonic screwdrivers for your minifigs, and/or it might mean you'll also be able interchange other parts between lines.

It seems that Character Building is taking a page from the Collectible Minifig Series playbook and offering two blind bag series around Easter and in the Fall 2011. The blind packs will retail for 1.99 GBP and have 10 figures in each series.

There will also be three types of battle packs available - Daleks, Cybermen, and Weeping Angels. Each battle pack will have five of a given villian.

In addition to regular playset packs, there are also plans for a '11 Doctors' micro-figure set, featuring each of the 11 iterations of our favorite Time Lord.

Intrigued? You can see a lot more at Doctor Who Toys.

  4. @Aaron - Thanks for the video!

    @Omi - Yes, I think these have more in common with Kubrick than minifigs. I'm certain our UK readers are very excited by this news, however.
