Some "Dr Who" toys have surfaced in UK. There are a couple of cool ships that are almost the AF size. They are sold with little characters.

Hey, those aren't bad, and only around $13 US. They're solid though, huh? No moving parts?

That Tardis with the teeny Doctor minifig looks like some bad cast-off episode where he gets shrunk. :p

With good reason, sergiurusu. Those are part of a new Micro Universe mini-fig battle game. Just like WOTC mini game or WK Clix game. I seen some thing on these over at figures.com, a week or so ago. I'm glad to see they're doing some of ships. Hope someone here, in the States carries them.

Two of the Dr Who Micro universe toys are out now in the UK.

The Judoon ship is 125mm long and splits into a top and bottom half where you can store the landing legs. The ship has optional parts so you can display it with landing legs up or down.

The Sanctuary Base rocket is 158mm long. Sharp points are molded in PVC so the kids don't stab themselves (nosecone and booster pods on the wings).

They come in Action Fleet style boxes, the packaging is extremely similar. Each has one PVC figure attached to a circular base. The figures are 35mm high, taller than Action Fleet, and are not articulated. Unlike Action Fleet the ships have no action features, but make very nice display models.

The ships have round stands and a clear plastic rod to attach to them if you wish to display them in flight.

They are pretty accurate toys with nice paint jobs. Now if only they'd do this for more Britsh SF vehicles - Gerry Anderson or Blake's 7 anyone? Character Options - are you listening?

Hopefully these will be transported and sold in the states as well.

They sound pretty good. I've noticed the AF packaging has really been lifted a lot for toys in the past 5 years or so.
