Action figure

If there’s one thing Star Wars is known for (other than the movies of course), it’s their robust line of toys and action figures. Back in the late seventies and early eighties, it was the line of toys that really helped to spread the good word of Star Wars (and deepen creator George Lucas’ pockets). Since then, the toy industry has enjoyed a great deal of profit when it comes to licensing figures based on movies, but it doesn’t come without controversy. When Star Wars: The Force Awakens launched their line of toys, there was one figure who was mostly absent and this caused a real stir. Now, thanks to people like Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley (Scrawl, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Only Yesterday), the action figure industry has changed forever.

Everyone wants to have their own little raggedy Doctor, and while there are plenty of pint size plastic play things resembling the time/space traveling  lunatic, none compare to 1:6 scale of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor from HOT TOYS.

With the latest season of Doctor Who  having just wrapped up, people are going to have to wait till next year for more timey, wimey adventures.  So buying this mini-Doctor is sure to keep even the most impatient nerd amused. Check out the full sized picture after the jump.
