Hello! New member here, thanks for having me.  Smile

I am in possession of a 5.5" model from Character Options' range of New Series Doctor Who action figures. It's quite possibly the rarest prototype in the entire Doctor Who range; a neutral-posed Series One Rose Tyler action figure that was never put into production due to the actress (Billie Piper)'s wishes.

There's only two prototypes in existence, both proofs to enable toy designs to be signed off by the BBC. It was given to me unboxed by the toy manufacturer in 2008.

It stands a little taller than the rest of the range, as the moulding process usually shrinks figures by around 5%. The hairpiece, head, and hands are detachable as these were sculpted separately to the body.

Would this be of interest to anyone here? Leave a comment or send me a PM. Thanks!
