Character's range of figures seems to rise exponentially, with a multitude of new releases for both the new series and the classic series range, many of which are available as exclusives in the UK through sci-fi retailer Forbidden Planet. Here are three recent sets from the classics range: the Sixth Doctor and "Stealth Cyberman" from Attack of the Cybermen; Cyberleader and Cybermen from Revenge of the Cybermen; and coming out next week Peri and Sil from Vengeance on Varos.
