?It’s not quite up to Hot Toys level, but Doctor Who fans could do a lot worse than this 12-inch figure of the Eleventh Doctor from BIG Chief. If nothing else the clothes are great — note the suspenders, as well the socks — but he also comes with…

? Sonic Screwdriver (Closed)
? Sonic Screwdriver (Open)
? Wallet with Psychic Paper
? Nano Recorder Gun
? Lash-up Device
? Time Lord Consciousness Cube
? The Doctor’s Invitation with Envelope
? TARDIS Door Sign Fragment
? The Doctor’s Handkerchief
? Wristwatch

…which is pretty groovy. The release date hasn’t been set yet, nor have the pre-orderss, but at least you can go to ToyNewsI and look at some more pictures if you want to. So that’s something, right?

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
