I have these Doctor Who action figures and would like to know what they are.

Dr Who Action Figures

  • The first looks somewhat like an Ice Warrior -- perhaps some variety?

    The first image that alexwlchan posted is a Melkur from the episode "The Keeper of Traken", see bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/episodeguide/keepertraken

  • Fixed now. I've added them as pics from OPs G+ account and combined them into a single question.

  • Hypnosifl and Alexwlchan answered first. I'd hate to grab their credit by giving an answer :)

    @MacCooper - I plan to do exactly that. My answer is a veritable masterpiece of research and accuracy ;-)

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.

The first one looks like an ice warrior and the second looks like a Sontaran.

  • What is an "ice warrior"? (I didn't downvote you, btw.)

    @Randal'Thor I know it's wikipedia, but: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Warrior Jun 25, 2017 at 14:12

    @maguirenumber6 Well, that's embarrassing. Back in 2015, I clearly hadn't seen the Cold War episode yet, let alone The Empress of Mars from the new series :-)

  • It's OK. Anyone who didn't watch the show in the 1960s-70s wouldn't know about the Ice Warriors anyway. Jun 26, 2017 at 11:09
