The nightmarish Skovox Blitzer from Doctor Who is part of the Wave 4 collection of TV series figures. A Skovox Blitzer was an extraterrestrial robot designed for warfare that was considered to be one of the most lethal weapons ever developed. A single Blitzer was capable of delivering enough explosive force to devastate a whole planet.
In terms of physical form, the robot was comprised of a humanoid torso with an alien-shaped head and stocky arms on top of a bigger box-like frame with four crustacean-like legs in the corners that pushed the robot while it was on the ground at about the same pace as a human runner. According to the Twelfth Doctor, the Blitzer has the ability to fly as well as travel through space, implying that it has successfully located the target region on Earth without the assistance of other beings. This would also explain the unusual, floating manner in which it moves while on the ground, with the legs being responsible for propulsion rather than being slowed down by the weight of the body on its back. Its weapons were integrated into its arms, with the right arm containing a triple-barrelled rapid fire weapon that could fire three simultaneous green energy bolts that caused their target to rapidly burn and disintegrate, and the left arm containing a single-barrelled energy weapon that could fire white energy bolts that could explosively vapourise anything within about two metres of the impact point on the target.
Skovox Blitzers were meant to audibly proclaim aloud anything they were thinking about at the time, whether it was environmental information they had scanned or an order they were presently following. This was a first for the Skovox race. It is believed that they were programmed to believe that the only solution to almost every problem was to destroy the source or obstruction, and that they were not designed to distinguish between enemy combatants and unarmed civilians, despite any claims by the target that they were friendly and harmless. In the event that they were instructed to shut down without the required final input code, they would self-destruct and destroy the planet that they were on. (From the television show The Caretaker)
