Doctor Who and An Unearthly Child Playset

Entering the yard
An Unearthly Child (sometimes referred to as 100,000 BC) is the first serial of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It was first broadcast on BBC TV in four weekly parts from 23 November to 14 December 1963. Scripted by Australian writer Anthony Coburn, the serial introduces William Hartnell as the First Doctor and his original companions: Carole Ann Ford as the Doctor's granddaughter, Susan Foreman, with Jacqueline Hill and William Russell as school teachers Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton. The first episode deals with Ian and Barbara's discovery of the Doctor and his time-space ship TARDIS in a junkyard in contemporary London. The remaining episodes are set amid a power struggle between warring Stone Age factions who have lost the secret of making fire.

Super Powers Catwoman Custom Figure

Thanks to the wonderful talent of custom figure maker Justin Vinson, Catwoman has now joined the Gotham City villians.

If Catwoman had ever made it to the Super Powers Collection odds are that the design would have been based off the Bronze Age DC Comics Catwoman as featured in the DC Style Guide by José Luis García-López. Justin has perfectly captured that design with this figure and she fits in very well the other villains in the collection.

Corgi 1:16 scale Die-Cast Robin Cycle

In 2005 Corgi released a 1:16 scale die-cast Robin Cycle that is almost an exact copy of Robin cycle featured in the the DC Bronze Age comics and in the DC Style Guide. Packaged in a nice open face display box (approx. 5.5" x 4"), at 1:16 scale, making it perfect for the Super-Powers collection! The Corgi Robin Cycle comes with a non-articulated Robin figure attached to the bike, but with a little effort the figure can be removed and the Super-Powers Robin figure actually sits nicely on the bike.
