Time and Relative Dimension(s) in Toy Playsets



After making several versions of the outside of the Doctor’s TARDIS from Doctor Who, Underground Toys has finally gotten around to making the inside of the TARDIS — at least the version the 11th Doctor tools around in — and as you might imagine, it’s quite a bit larger than the outside versions. This playset is due in September for $70 and is in-scale all the 5-inch Doctor Who figures, although it doesn’t seem to have any lights or sounds (a bit of a waste) and doesn’t come with any figures for sure. Still, I’m told you can actually fit it inside one of the police box/outer TARDIS playsets, although the ability to manipulate physics is sold separately.
