#2: Doctor Who - Weeping Angel

While at SacAnime, I was mostly keeping an eye out for Japanese toys, figuring that finding them would be more likely at a Japanese culture inspired event. Unsurprisingly, there were not a whole lot of western toy lines represented, but there were a few. One booth I stopped by had a few of the newer Doctor Who figures in the smaller scale. I will probably will not be collecting too many of the figures in the new scale, but a Weeping Angel is always cool. One of the things I like most about the figure is that it has the full length robes, which I find evocative of their first (and best) appearance in the episode Blink. I don't know if it's a standard for new new smaller scale of figures, but the figure is sporting considerably less articulation. Well, the arms, anyway. Obviously there's no leg articulation here. The only articulation for the arms is at the shoulders which get swivel-hinge joints. Fortunately, this isn't a figure that necessarily needs a lot of articulation, so merely looking cool is good enough.

Also included is a completely unnecessary figure stand, shaped like the current TARDIS inspired DW logo for the show.
