The Fourth Doctor[]

Info:[]

The figures is released with his Sonic Screwdriver. The sculpt of this figure is similar to previous released Fourth Doctor figures, but has a duffle coat instead of his jacket which is a new sculpt along with his arms. Also the head is from the figure in the 11 Doctors Box Set, but it's not removable.

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.
