The set comprises of a First Doctor figure, a Sensorite Action Figure with Probe Accessory plus an alternative Sensorite ELDER Action Figure with Probe Accessory.

Fearful of its immense power falling into the wrong hands, its sole guardian has scattered the machine's operating keys across the planet. The TARDIS crew arrives to find the island under attack by the evil Voord. Marinus' last line of defense — and its only hope — is the Conscience machine. The Doctor and his companions must undertake a deadly quest to recover the keys of Marinus...
The figures in this set include an Ian Chesterton action figure, accompanied by not one but two Voord Warriors with a dagger accessory.

The Day of the Daleks Set
