The War Doctor: Finally, a John Hurt (and Paul McGann) Action Figure



This is a pretty big deal – as anyone who has followed Alien collectibles over the years knows, John Hurt doesn’t tend to sign off on his likeness (most Kane figures have been facehugger-on for that reason). But since you can’t be a Doctor nowadays without signing off on a toy, here’s his new figure, and a solid piece of custom fodder, made easier by the fact that his head is removable so that you can swap it out for Paul McGann’s if you prefer.

Bonus: it is indeed in the original 5-inch scale and not the new 3-3/4 one they’ve been moving to to keep costs down, so he will be compatible in displays with your older Doctors, or Rose.

Now, gentlemen (and ladies)…start your Spaceballs figures!
