The official Forbidden Planet website has released information about a new ‘Vengeance on Varos’ action figure set, which includes the Sixth Doctor’s companion Peri Brown and the sly reptilian Sil. This is the first set to contain a companion from the classic era of Doctor Who.
“The Sixth Doctor and Peri visit the planet Varos to obtain supplies of a rare ore called Zeiton 7, vital to the functioning of the TARDIS. Varos was once a colony for the criminally insane and the descendants of the original guards still rule, while the poverty-stricken people are kept entertained by screenings of public torture from the Punishment Dome.
Their Governor has been trying to negotiate a better export price for zeiton ore from Sil, an envoy of the Galatron Mining Corporation, whose reptilian body is supported and kept cool by a mobile water tank.”
The new set is now available to pre-order at the price of £24.99 from Forbidden Planet, and is expected to arrive at their warehouse on 7th December 2010.
