The Mandrels first appeared in the 1979 Fourth Doctor adventure 'Nightmare of Eden'. The creatures have been captured electronically and stored in a small machine called the CET. While it’s explained that the Mandrels – and many other species – are in danger from extinction, altruism isn’t the reason that the machine’s inventor, a scientist named Tryst, is saving them as they are the source of a powerful and addictive narcotic.
Your highly detailed metallic resin Mandrel figurine has been crafted and painted by hand, and depicts the Mandrel covered in red scales and dark fur, with glowing green eyes and a fan-like mouth from which several vines hang. Their legs flared out with frill-like hairs, and their long arms ended in clawed hands.
Accompanied by a lavishly illustrated magazine,it goes behind-the-scenes of the classic Tom Baker-era story, plus a return to Coal Hill School and Lalla Ward.
