Coming Soon: Doctor Who Meets Playmobil

Yes, be they stiff of knee and spiked of hair, the Doctor has invaded another childhood classic.

Arriving in shops later in the year are two fantastic Doctor Who figures from Funko, modelled in the instantly recognisable style of the Playmobil figures.

Funko are no strangers to Doctor Who figures thanks to their range of POP! Vinyls, but these are the first to be made in collaboration with Playmobil to produce classic articulated, 6-inch ABS figures for a collector-focused line.

The first two figures to be released from the nostalgic range are the Fourth Doctor, complete with iconic scarf and the Eleventh Doctor.

Funko CEO Brian Mariotti is understandably chuffed with the figures:

“We’re honored and thrilled to create a historic cross-license with Playmobil and bring their unique style to the hip and trendy pop culture licenses Funko is known for…It’s an amazing opportunity, and we know fans of both styles are going to love these figures.”

Funko’s first wave of Playmobil 6 inch, 200% figures will include characters from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, and BBC’s Sherlock and Doctor Who, with many more forthcoming.

The Fourth and Eleventh Doctor will be released in Spring 2017.
