DOCTOR WHO Sontaran Experiment Set Coming Soon
Character Options is releasing another classic Doctor Who action figure set, pictured above. This set is inspired by the episode "The Sontaran Experiment" and gives us a new Fourth Doctor variant and the first classic Sontaran from the modern figure range. Also included is the Sontaran ship from the episode. As always, the set will be imported in the US by Underground Toys. The set is expected to be available late February or early March.
Here's the solicitation information:
"Underground Toys is really pleased to announce details of our new Classic Doctor Who item : The Sontaran Experiment Collectors' Set
The Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and Harry Sullivan arrive on a desolate and apparently deserted Earth to discover that a group of shipwrecked astronauts from a human colony, GalSec, have been lured there by a fake distress call. One of their number, Roth, tells Sarah Jane of an alien conducting gruesome experiments on him and his crewmates. The alien turns out to be a Sontaran, Field-Major Styre, who is compiling a report on human physical and mental capabilities as a prelude to an invasion of Earth.
The Doctor challenges Styre to unarmed combat. The Sontaran agrees but is quickly weakened in Earth's unfamiliar gravity. Harry meanwhile enters Styre's ship and uses the Doctor's sonic screwdriver to remove the vital terullian diode bypass transformer, so that when the alien returns there to revitalise himself he is drained of all his energy and destroyed. The Doctor sends a message to the Sontaran fleet, warning them that without Styre's report they cannot invade.
In this great gift set from Underground Toys we present the Classic Sontaran: Field-Major Styre and his iconic Sontaran space ship along with the Fourth Doctor in duffle coat and hat.
1 x Fourth Doctor in duffle coat and hat action figure with Sonic Screwdriver.
1 x Sontaran Field-Major Styre action figure with helmet and gun.
1 x Sontaran Ship."
