The Signature Statue Collection- Gallifrey Edition – Patrick Troughton
March 3, 2011

Underground Toys is thrilled to release information on our new Doctor Who Second Doctor Statue.  Please find images attached.  This item will be shipping in July.

 

Patrick Troughton’s portrayal of the Second Doctor  is captured at last in a statue of exacting detail.

This is the first in a series of Collector Statues from Underground Toys that will bring you beautiful detailing and incredibly accurate likenesses of characters from “Doctor Who”, the most successful science fiction series ever.   Everyone involved in this project has worked meticulously to bring these pieces of history to life in a manner never seen before.

The Second Doctor’s costume is from the storyline ‘The Tenth Planet’ which was first broadcast on 29th October 1966. At the time, “Doctor Who” was broadcast in black and white but the colours used on the statue are authenticated by the many existing ‘behind the scene’ shots.  This piece itself is made from polystone and once set on it’s base, stands 9” tall. It is presented in a high-quality, fully illustrated closed gift box.  Masterfully painted and beautifully crafted, the Second Doctor is packaged with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity and is ready to display.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
