Well, technically these should be December's figurines, as the postman tried to deliver them on the 30th of last month. Anyways, what we have this time round is a pair of figurines from the Tennant era.
First up is the Hath, from The Doctor's Daughter, looking more impressive than it did on screen. A big chunky model, you can't really go wrong with it. RTD had a habit of producing aliens that were simply animal heads stuck on humanoid bodies - usually wearing a boiler-suit (e.g. Pig Slaves, Tritovores). Moffat on the other hand favours skull-like faces atop black suits.
Talking of black suits, the other figurine is the John Simm Master, as he first appeared in The Sound of Drums. He's striking a casual pose, and holding his laser-screwdriver. I wouldn't claim it as the greatest likeness in the world, but it is harder to do better with such a small scale figurine, and my model looks far better than the one they photographed for the accompanying magazine.
Next time we are still in Tennant territory, as we get one of the Carrionite witches.
