The first looks somewhat like an Ice Warrior -- perhaps some variety? –  Mac Cooper Apr 20 '14 at 14:29
The first image that alexwlchan posted is a Melkur from the episode "The Keeper of Traken", see bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/episodeguide/keepertraken –  Hypnosifl Apr 20 '14 at 14:44
Fixed now. I've added them as pics from OPs G+ account and combined them into a single question. –  Richard Apr 20 '14 at 16:04
Hypnosifl and Alexwlchan answered first. I'd hate to grab their credit by giving an answer :) –  Mac Cooper Apr 20 '14 at 16:34
@MacCooper - I plan to do exactly that. My answer is a veritable masterpiece of research and accuracy ;-) –  Richard Apr 20 '14 at 16:35

1 Answer 1

The "monsters" you've posted are a Melkur and a Sontaran Warrior.

The figures themselves were created by a company called DaPol to cash in on the 1996 Doctor Who film. You can find others in the same series here.

+1 for credit stealing ;) –  Mac Cooper Apr 20 '14 at 17:49
@MacCooper - I'd already fixed the question and written an answer when it went "on hold" otherwise I'd have let the others answer it (or made my answer a community wiki). –  Richard Apr 20 '14 at 17:51
I know, I'm just kiddin' :) –  Mac Cooper Apr 20 '14 at 17:52
@MacCooper - Plus, I'm a huge rep-whore... –  Richard Apr 20 '14 at 17:54
If I didn't respect this site so much I'd make an answer too and see which one gets the accepted ;) –  Mac Cooper Apr 20 '14 at 17:55
