I have the first four of these released and a weeping angel. Had the others on pre order and have been emailed to say these have been cancelled as in they are not being manufactured due to low global orders. As much as I appreciate the cost of these they are well made I can't believe I won't be able to complete my collection. Titan merchandise you should be ashamed in letting the rest of the doctor who fans down, IT SUCKS!!!!

The only thing missing?....The Jelly Babies!17 Feb. 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
All of Titan's Maxi bust sculpts of various Doctor Who characters have been very well done. This one of the fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) is no exceptoin. From his specific Sonic Screwdriver to the highly accurate and iconic scarf...as well as all that hair!...this sculpt is very nicely realised. My only slight complaint is with the details in the face.
As with all of the 'human' characters in this line of sculpts, there is something just a bit off in the facial likeness of the character. It is hard to place, and may be different with each specific sculpt but with mine I believe it's in the eyes. It is very minor, but is just enough for the realization that this is not a spot on replica of Tom Baker's appearance. That being said, as an artist myself I understand completely how very difficult it is to reach perfection in representing a person's exact appearance and personality perfectly in an artistic space. I can't imagine replicating to perfection across many multiple reproductions. Because of this understanding I have no quams in giving this bust a five star rating. It is very well done, as are all of Titan's other replicas in this line and I highly recommend them all to the serious collector and / or hardcore fan of the series.
