The Sixth Doctor: black outfit by fourth-heir The Sixth Doctor: black outfit by fourth-heir
Yet another custom Sixth Doctor figure :)

As it happens Colin Baker originally wished to dress his Doctor in black to reflect his character's darker personality. Producer John Nathan-Turner, however, opted for the famously tasteless costume with garish clashing colours (later described by Colin as "an explosion in a rainbow factory" :D ) that we all know and love.

In various interviews over the years Colin has made comments regarding the sorts of things he'd have preferred to wear and I've used them as inspiration for this figure (plus a little creative licence of my own ;)).

Edit: and now approved by THE Colin Baker himself via Twitter - @SawbonesHex - "Take the ? off the tie and I'll give you ten out of ten. Very nice indeed. I want one."

The figure is constructed from the arms and legs of the Ninth Doctor with the torso and head of a regeneration Sixth Doctor. Plenty of new sculpted detail was required on the chest once the woolly jumper had been removed. The tie is actually from a junk 'Raggedy Doctor' I had - saved me a little effort :P - and the coat from a Tenth Doctor.

It turned out that the joints of the two main figures were wildly different sizes. I resorted to cutting the shoulder pegs from the fifth Doctor figure and replacing the original Ninth Doctor arm pegs (super glue and a length of brass wire through each hub resulted in a suitably strong join) so that the poseability would be kept. The waist was also way out and in the end I just filed down the peg from the legs 'til it was small enough to fit inside the requisite hole and glued the two parts together - all other joints still work freely. Black paint galore (a matt finish on the shirt, glossier on the coat) plus the detail of tie and 'twas done!

Thanks, also, what did you use for the Concept 5th Doctor? :)

It's just a regular fifth doctor with the jumper swapped for a waistcoat (Professor Bracewell was the source of that) and the coat shortened :)

I'll try that too, do you make Dalek customs?

Nope - I'm not a particularly big fan of the Daleks - the limitations of their design makes for pretty boring toys. :P Nearly all my customs have been variants of the Doctor or the Master.
