Media Release — Dr. Who takes over in the October issue of PREVIEWS featuring the exclusive plush version of the Doctor’s favorite companion, K-9. The dogbot from Underground Toys, can be pre-ordered now at your local comic book specialty shop, and is scheduled to release in early November, 2013.
The PREVIEWS Exclusive Doctor Who K9 Medium Talking Plush (Item Code: OCT132032, SRP: $29.99) is a “retro futuristic” robotic canine from the year 5,000 in a perfectly huggable size. The gray plush embodies the look and feel of the famous canine friend of the Fourth Doctor, offering phrases such as, “Affirmative,” “Affirmative master,” and “Maximum defense mode!”
“Since K-9 is both a classic and current Doctor Who character, it made sense for us to look at making product focusing on him,” said Robyn Cowling, Licensing Director for Underground Toys. “With his quick wit and iconic phrases, he’s the perfect choice for our talking plush range. The feedback online has been great so far so it looks like we made the right decision and he’s sure to be a hit with Doctor Who fans young and old.”
The Doctor Who K9 plush is featured in the October PREVIEWS catalog on page 452, and can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop. Find a comic shop at www.comicshoplocator.com and add this exclusive pooch to your Doctor Who collection.
