A Limited Edition of only 225 Figurines
We at Robert Harrop Designs have been creating collectable hand painted figurines for over 30 years and have gained a well earned reputation of high quality and accuracy of detail. Our extensive portfolio includes Thunderbirds, Camberwick Green, Beano Dandy and 2000AD to name but a few. A portfolio that is extremely nostalgic and very British, so it was no surprise that Doctor Who would be the next project that we wanted to embrace into our studios!
In partnership with the BBC, we have meticulously hand sculpted a range of 1:12 scale, hand cast and hand painted Doctor Who figurines, each made to strict Worldwide Limited Editions.
As a mark of provenance, each Limited Edition figurine will be numbered with a unique Edition Number and will come packaged in a presentation box with an Information Card and Certificate of Authenticity!
From 'Terror of the Vervoids' 1986“
All animal-kind is our enemy, Professor. Even you.”
Terror of the Vervoids is framed by the trial of the Sixth Doctor, a trial by the High Council of Time Lords led by the Valeyard, accusing the Doctor of interfering in the affairs of other species. In his defence, the Doctor tells of an account from his own personal future, set on board the Hyperion III space liner in the year 2986 AD. Upon answering a distress call, the Doctor and his companion Mel arrive on the liner where a sinister new life-form is about to bring death and disaster to the passengers and crew.
This new life-form are Vervoids, artificially created humanoid plants, created as a slave species to be taken in stasis to Earth in pods. Accidentally awoken early from their pods, the Vervoids instinctively hate 'animal-kind' and will kill all for survival. The Doctor ultimately destroys the Vervoids, whilst also helping to thwart a mutiny on board the Hyperion III.
Back in the courtroom, the Doctor is asked if any of the Vervoids survived and he informs the court that none did; if even a leaf had survived and reached Earth, a Vervoid would have grown. Seizing on this, the Valeyard accuses the Doctor of committing genocide...
