The Eleventh Hour Crash Action Figure Set

Character Options have now announced the first Doctor Who series five action figure set from the first episode of the series, The Eleventh Hour. The set includes two new figures of The Eleventh Doctor, the first of which is in The Tenth Doctor's ripped clothes and the second of which is in his tweed jacket. It's synopsis, which includes spoilers, can be read below:

Recreate scenes from the ‘Eleventh Hour’ with this twin pack that features two incredibly detailed and authentic Eleventh Doctor five inch action figures. When the Eleventh Doctor’s TARDIS crashes into the garden of young Amelia Pond, he is still wearing the remains of the Tenth Doctor’s suit, ripped and raggedy from the damage after the TARDIS control room exploded. After he departs, Amelia grows up, telling her friends about ‘The Raggedy Doctor’, making dolls and puppets of him. When he returns to her life after twelve years, he’s still wearing the same battered clothes but, shortly before facing down the Atraxi, he selects for himself a new outfit, ‘borrowed’ from various lockers at the local hospital. Tweed jacket, bow tie and boots in place, the Eleventh Doctor is now ready...

The Eleventh Hour crash set will be released across the United Kingdom and Ireland in a few weeks time, with no release date confirmed. An image of the new action figure set is expected to be revealed after The Eleventh Hour is aired on Saturday night. More news regarding series five action figures will be posted.
