Well here’s a leaked Character Option Yeti from the classic Doctor Who episodes, The Abominable Snowmen and The Web of Fear. Does this mean that this figure is on the way? Typically yes, it does. Hopefully it’ll have ball jointed legs like the Axon (review here) awesome figure does. I know I’m not alone in hoping that this comes in a two pack with a new 2nd Doctor Patrick Troughton in his furry coat!

Update: Unfortunately, I have taken down the proto picture of the Yeti. In it’s place is my excellent rendering of the proto. Sadly I was contacted by the fine folks at Designworks (Who do all the Doctor Who sculpting) and they wanted me to take it down. I should add that they were very nice and didn’t threaten me legally or send any ninjas. However I have no desire to get anyone in trouble, so I took it down. Enjoy my artwork instead and know that the folks at DesignWorks in conjunction with Character Options and Underground Toys, have clearly been working on an excellent detailed Yeti figure and hopefully we’ll have official release information and confirmation soon. I am trying to work something out and hopefully will have some good news in the future.

    That looks freakin' sweet!!! Thank you for showing it!!

  • No problem. I have to agree, it looks really good. Now just have to play the waiting game for CO to officially announce something with it.

  • TheBlackDalek says:

    I leaked this (TheBlackDalek at your service 😉 ), I have more for you coming soon. Shall I just email them directly to you?

  • Rob_Mac says:

    This looks really cool, and I would totally buy it bundled with a 2nd doctor in fur coat figure.

  • Bill says:

    This figure actually looks better than the monster on the show did! Not that I'm complaining or anything… I would like to see more articulation too, Newton, but if the finished guy looks as good as this, I don't mind.
    I really wish they would sell this as a single carded figure, but I fear CO has put those days behind them.

    Of course, if this figure is never produced you can make your own custom by dipping some random figure in glue and then rolling it around the floor of a barbershop. That will look pretty much like the creature on the show did…

    That figure is almost certainly based on the Yeti from The Web of Fear rather than The Abominable Snowmen. The AS Yeti looked much cuter than the WOF ones. This could be a perfect opportunity for a Jamie or Zoe figure though, given that CO recently announced the Sil and Peri set…

  • Feel free to email me.

  • Me too!

  • Haha, yeah I'm not sure I want to do the barbershop method though. That sounds kind of, hmm, gross! lol

  • TheBlackDalek says:

    They recently 'released' it you mean. It's been out for ages.
    The set IS from the Web of Fear, I also know what it's part of, but I'll keep that to myself for now.
    There is a wave 3 of single figures en route.

  • Yeah I think you're right. The designs seemed a bit bigger and fluffier in the Web of Fear and that's how this figure appears to me as well.

    I really like this picture. I know this comment adds nothing to the content of this post, but I saw it before, when the real picture was up, and I kind of like yours better. I would totally buy this.

  • Tshirts says:

    Apologies! You are of course correct. Unfortunately Forbidden Planet is a fair distance from me now and where 10-15 years ago I might have had the disposable income to keep up with these figures, these days I don't…

    Great set. long overdue. Now about the Krotons and Quarks…
