Doctor Who hand-painted figurine


A limited edition of only 200


We at Robert Harrop Designs have been creating collectable hand painted figurines for over 30 years and have gained a well earned reputation of high quality and accuracy of detail.  Our extensive portfolio includes Thunderbirds, Camberwick Green, Beano Dandy and 2000AD to name but a few.  A portfolio that is extremely nostalgic and very British, so it was no surprise that Doctor Who would be the next project that we wanted to embrace into our studios!

In partnership with the BBC, we have meticulously hand sculpted a range of 1:12 scale, hand cast and hand painted Doctor Who figurines, each made to strict Worldwide Limited Editions.

As a mark of provenance, each Limited Edition figurine will be numbered with a unique Edition Number and will come packaged in a presentation box with an Information Card and Certificate of Authenticity!

Solonian Mutant

From ‘The Mutants’ 1972

“Already the pollution is causing mutations. The Mutts, as the Marshal calls them. Mutts!”


The Doctor and Jo are sent on a mission by the Time Lords to deliver a sealed message to an unknown party aboard a Skybase orbiting the planet Solos. Solos is due to gain independence from Earth's Empire, but its Marshal is determined to prevent this. He arranges the murder of the Earth Administrator and, with his Chief Scientist Jaeger, plans to transform Solos's atmosphere into one more suited to humans.


Ky, a young Solonian leader, is falsely accused of the murder, and flees to the planet. The Doctor follows and joins him in an old thaesium mine. Ky turns out to be the intended recipient of the message, which opens automatically for him. Inside are stone tablets carved with ancient inscriptions?


In the mine they meet Sondergaard, a human scientist searching for a cure for the mutating disease that afflicts the Solonians. The Doctor and Sondergaard decipher the inscriptions, deducing that the mutations are part of a natural life-cycle in which the thaesium radiation plays a vital role. The Doctor retrieves a crystal from where the radiation is most concentrated and returns to the Skybase to analyse it. He is recaptured by the Marshal and forced to perfect the machine with which Jaeger plans to transform Solos. Sondergaard meanwhile gives Ky the crystal, which turns him first into a mutant, and then into an ethereal super-being - the ultimate stage of the Solonians' life-cycle. Jaeger is killed when the Doctor sabotages his machine, and the Marshal is vaporised by Ky.A Limited
