Storm in a Dalek Teapot

We’ve all been there, surfing the Doctor Who page on Amazon or looking at the diorama section in Forbidden Planet. Suddenly a magnificent figurine catches the eye and we must have it. That amazing mini statue of the Fourth Doctor fighting with Davros, that Cyberman box set with four different figures displaying their varied look over the years.

A Dalek teapot on AmazonAnd then that little voice in the back of the head pops up “should I spend this much money on what is basically a toy that I may or may not keep in the packaging for many, many years?” For one eBay bidder, money is obviously no object as a Dalek teapot has sold on the auction site for a whopping £620! That’s the equivalent cost (roughly) of 135 copies of Doctor Who Magazine or 50 Big Finish adventures!

The Teapot is a lovely design, all Imperial style casing from Remembrance of the Daleks, and the back of its head pops off to pour in the water. There’s a handle on its back emblazoned with the species chilling death cry “Exterminate”. Which strangely enough, the new paradigm from Victory of the Daleks look like they could possess.

Whoever the winner was, we’d all like to know if it’s on the shelf proudly displayed and pouring tea or whether it’s shrink wrapped under full protection..

Check out the seller’s page to see the item in its full glory!

    Gary seymour’s dalek may have realised a price of £620,but what the buyer doesnt know is,there’s a much bigger, better quality dalek teapot been designed since this one out there,which places gary’s attempt firmly in the shade!!!
