Following up on the opening of pre-orders for their Dalek “Bobble Buddies” mini figurines, specialist figure makers BIG Chief Studios have just trailed the upcoming release of a “sixth scale” Dalek range, although no full details have been released just yet.
Birmingham-based BIG Chief, who have produced a wide range of highly detailed figures based in a range of great TV properties, including Doctor Who, Captain Scarlet and Thunderbirds, recently opened pre-orders for limited edition Dalek “Bobble Buddies” mini figurines, due for release later this year.
Due for release in September is a Dalek Invasion Mini Figurines Multipack, comprising Emperor Dalek; Gold Dalek; Dalek Warrior and Necros Dalek mini bobble figurine: each figurine’s head comically bobbles and wobbles on a spring.
Due for release in November is the Dalek Series 1 Mini Bobble, standing at 75mm (2.95 inches) in height,
This Series 1 Dalek is being offered as a single figure and as part of a gift set that includes fun figures of the Third, Fourth and Tenth Doctor, offered as a gift set.
Unlike their stunning, limited edition larger scale collectibles, the “Bobble Buddies”are offered at prices of £9.99 upward.
Established in 2011, BIG Chief Studios Ltd. was founded by Mark Andrews and Tony Leetham, industry professionals with more than thirty years experience working with licensed characters and brands.
Hailing from a creative background, both company directors felt the time was right for them to branch out and form a company that specialised in the manufacture of high-end figures and collectables.
With an expanding team of creative professionals, BIG Chief are working on a wide range of new, exciting products to thrill fans and collectors alike.
