Master Replicas brings back Doctor Who statue line

Published on: 27th November 2023

The collection will include 1:21 and 1:6 scale statues, TARDIS consoles and vehicles based on 60 years of Doctor Who, through a licence deal with BBC Studios.

Master Replicas has announced that it has acquired the rights to continue the Doctor Who Figurine Collection, one of the longest-running and most successful Doctor Who collections ever released.

To date, the collection has featured statues from every era of Doctor Who, allowing fans to bring 370 unique characters into their homes. It was left unfinished when the previous rights holder, Eaglemoss, went into administration in 2022. Master Replicas’ new production will fit seamlessly with the original statues and will include new releases of some of the most popular characters from the Whoniverse, including Daleks and Cybermen.

As before, the statues will be carefully researched by combing through the BBC archives and studying the episodes. They are then digitally sculpted before being cast in polyresin and painted by hand. The collection also includes a line of Mega statues that stand between 20 cm and 34 cm tall and a series of TARDIS consoles. Additionally, work had begun on a series of vehicles.

Darren Epstein from Heathside Trading, which owns Master Replicas, commented: “This is a very exciting time for Doctor Who and we’re very happy that we’re able to bring this collection back. The range of statues is incredible. We couldn’t be happier to continue the work and will be bringing the same level of research and attention to detail to the series. We’re particularly excited to bring the vehicles to life, starting with the Dalek Saucer from The Parting of the Ways.”

Work is underway and the collection will return in 2024. More information will be made available at MasterReplicas.com.
