Big Chief makes a fantastic job of the 11th/12th Doctor Tardis
|I waited quite a while to get it. There were some delays due to quality issues but I picked it up this morning. The Big Chief recent incarnation of the iconic Doctor Who Tardis is a true quality product. 1000 are being made and who ever orders them will be very lucky and satisfied fans.|
The model is 15kg in weight and made from polystone. It has a removable top where 3 x AA batteries are placed. 4 x led lights illuminate the interior and the lamp at the top can be set to flash or stay constant. The interior diorama has a set of backdrops. These are from Matt Smith’s first adventures all the way to the recent Peter Capaldi incarnation. It is a true piece of iconic art for me. Large scale at 1:6 the dimensions and texture have been mapped from the original studio prop. This is why it is a treat to look at. There is even a telephone in the ‘pull to open’ hatch.
I have a few Big Chief models, figures mostly, and they are always great models. Expensive but worth it for the limited quantities and quality these are lovely to look at. I know they make another BBC production figure collection, Sherlock Holmes, and they too look superb. My interest is in Doctor Who, of course, and another great model I purchased a while ago are a pair of polystone Weeping Angels signed by the great show runner Steven Moffat. I have never been a person to collect merchandising. I have found that now I collect quality pieces that reflect my love of Doctor Who. The Big Chief Tardis very much receives my recommendation. When it first came up for pre order in November 2014 I placed an order and that is how good it is, the wait was worth it. The David Tennant model will be out part way through this year so there is a choice. Maybe one day they will model all the different Tardis variants? You would need a large room for all those!
